Who is Sumit Sao?
Hello Friends, I’m Sumit Sao, 27 years old, full-time blogger, affiliate marketer and the founder of this site BloggingLift.com where you get guides related to blogging, SEO, Affiliate Marketing, Funnels and AI Copywriting.
I’m from India and I’ve been blogging since 2017 with over 5 years of experience in blogging, SEO and affiliate marketing.
My main motive to start the Blogging Lift website was to help newbie bloggers with my content. So that they don’t make mistakes like me and will have a great start as a blogger.
Apart from Blogging Lift, I’m also running a blog ExactBlogging.com which I recently purchased from one of my friends.
You’ll be glad to know that I’m also running a Facebook group called “Blogging Lift” which has more than 40,000 members from around the world.
Here is one of my small achievements. In 2020, I participated in BeRush Contest. I got 1st place and won $1000 prize for creating in-depth content about the SEMrush tool.
I also got featured in lots of blogs as a top Indian blogger. You can check these articles from here.
About My Blogging Journey: How did I start the Blogging Lift website?
It all started in 2015. During my last semester of engineering, I came to know that we can design web pages by writing HTML codes.
So, created a webpage by writing HTML code and purchased a domain name for it from GoDaddy. After that, I was confused that how to link this domain name with my webpage. So, I called the Godaddy customer support team then they informed me that I have to purchase hosting for this.
In this way, I started my first single-page educational website with Godaddy.
One Day, I accidentally visited the ShoutMeLoud website and thought that they also created this website by writing HTML codes. 😂
But after reading his articles, I knew about Google Blogspot, WordPress and Google Adsense. That day I realized that we can even earn money from our blog by showing Google AdSense ads on our blog.
So, I started a new educational website with the Google Blogspot platform and monetized it with Google AdSense.
After this, I did the same mistake which many newbie bloggers make. I started clicking on Adsense ads from different devices so that I can earn more. And finally, after one month, I got an email from Google AdSense that your AdSense account is banned due to manual clicking. 😂
After that, I thought that this is the end of my blogging journey and now I can’t make money online with blogging because my AdSense account is banned. So, I stopped doing blogs and again started preparing for the GATE exam. 😢
One day, I again visited ShoutMeLoud and realize that they are not showing any Ads on their site then I was literally very confused that how are they making money from their blog.
After researching a lot, I found that Harsh Agarwal is doing affiliate marketing and making thousands of dollars every single month.
So, I started a Blogging blog on WordPress to do affiliate marketing and I also decided to share blogging, SEO and affiliate marketing tips in this blog which I learned after doing lots of mistakes.
But even after one year of starting this blog. I didn’t make even a single dollar from this site. So, I quit this website.
I thought that bloggers like Anil Agarwal, Ankit Singla, Akshay Hallur, Kulwant Nagi and many more are making thousands of dollars every single month. What are they doing differently?
So, I decided to spend time on my learning I started analyzing their website to understand how are they promoting products on their blog. I watched lots of videos and reads a lot of articles on SEO and affiliate marketing.
And after 3-4 months, I started the Blogging Lift Website in August 2017. 😍
I try to implement each and everything which I learned during my 3-4 months of learning.
This time it worked. After 7-8 months of starting Blogging Lift, I made my first $65 from Bluehost Affiliate Program. It motivated me a lot and I understood that I am on the right path.
I forgot to mention one thing, that during this time I was doing blogging part-time with my full-time job.
Here are my earning details from the Blogging Lift Site:
- In 2017, Earning was $0 per month (NO Earning) 😢
- In 2018, I was making approx $50-$60 per month and in some month earning was still $0
- In 2019, I was making avg $100+ per month and still in some months earning was less than $50
- In 2020, I started making average $300-$400 per month.
And you know what inMay 2020, I took a risk to quit my full-time job and decided to do blogging full time. 😮
It was the best decision of my life. I spend lots of time learning and implementing things that can grow my blogging Income.
And here is the result. Now, in 2021, I’m making $1,000+ every single month from Blogging. 😍

So, this is my blogging journey friends. I hope that I inspired you to get started with blogging or take a risk and start making money from your blog.
