Wow, Cant believe that WebyLife completed 1 year in blogging, It was really an interesting journey for me with my blog. As WebyLife celebrates its 1 year of blogging, I go down the memory lane to share with my readers that how does it all started.
How It All Started
It all started with my interest rising in website designing & development, I have continuously working on my skills & initially started with Joomla CMS & then further moved on to WordPress, which have now became 1st love for developing website. I started planning to start blog from January with finding appropriate web hosting to writing articles & selecting domain name for the blog.
For me, domain name selection was the toughest job of all, because I knew that it is the one thing that will stay with me forever. So I spent almost 15 days researching for the domain name & came up with WebyLife & its pronouce as Web-e-Life.
My Blogging Inspirations
There is always some inspiration behind things you do & yes even I was inspired for blogging for some of the famous blogs. From all the available the one that really inspired me were Smashing Magazine, 1stWebDesigner & Naldz Graphics.
Smashing Magazine is one of the best blog in design community & anyone in design community should always follow this blog for all the latest things in design & development, I really keen on getting WebyLife included in the Smashing Network, hope it happens really soon.
From, 1stWebDesigner I learned lots of things regarding WordPress, HTML,PHP & CSS they have some really useful tutorials written in plain English so that even a newbie can understand, which I loved the most about the blog. Also I have got opportunity to write few Guest Post for them which you can find it here: http://www.1stwebdesigner.com/author/nikunjt/.
Naldz Graphics is my biggest inspiration for design related stuff, the idea of using a character for WebyLife came from Naldz Graphics. It also shares some really awesome list post regarding design which I enjoy the most.

What I Have Learned
During the past 1 year I have learned lots of things from blogging some of important things are:
1. Dont blog keeping money in mind, blog for readers.
2. Blog on topic in which you are interested & you have proper knowledge about.
3. Research is important before writing anything.
4. Socializing is important, make friends with other bloggers.
5. Dont ever copy content from other blogs.
I will increase the frequency of posting articles, not only I be posting in quantity but also maintain high quality in each articles that will help WebyLife readers, Also I working on the new design & I am shortly starting 2 new blogs which are SEO Blog & Music Blog, so stay tuned to groove & learn new things.
