About ‘Craft Of Blogging’

Welcome to ‘Craft of Blogging’!

My name is Sumit Bansal and this is a place where I share tips and techniques that I have learned about blogging and building profitable niche sites.

That’s me, blogging from the Himalayas (Bhimtal)

I am also a huge fan of blogging tools and software, and you will also find some reviews of my favorite tools and services.

I started my first blog in 2013, left my full-time job in IBM in 2015, and have been doing this full-time since then.

Initially, I started with a tech blog, and after spending a few years learning the ropes and turning it into a huge authority site, I decided to build a portfolio of niche sites that can make money online.

As of now, I have a portfolio of 15+ niche sites, most of which are already making money (you can read my income reports here)

My blogging story has been featured on Authority Hacker, Problogger podcast, IndieHacker, Ideamensch, Side Hustle School Podcast, and many other sites and publications.

My aim with this blog is to share my learning/experiences and help people learn how to start and grow profitable niche sites.

I am also a co-host of the Himalayan Blogging Retreat. It’s a one-of-a-kind retreat where I conduct 3 days of blogging workshops with novice/intermediate bloggers. You can check the schedule here.
