If you are a student, I’m 100% sure, Your parents didn’t allow you for blogging. It is because the over care and love on you. They have only one dream about you, ‘My Son want to study well and get a best job’. You are studying for get a best job. If you love blogging than that job, You want to convince your parents. They didn’t know what is blogging and how to make money from it. They think that, you spend your time on Facebook or watching movies on Internet.
I also faced the same situation. I’m a 16 years old Guy studying in +2. I sat in front of my laptop 24×7. My Mother always scolds at me and she complained about me at PTA meetings and my teachers come with a lot of advices. But, I used some tricks to convince my parents to allow blogging. Now I’m really happy with Blogging. (But, I didn’t forget to study). In this post, I’m trying to share that trick I used 😉 .
Note : Don’t think that I’m saying that you don’t go to a job. I’m telling you my real life incident which happened to me.
