Interviewing the blogger and writer, Nakul Grover from Delhi was amazing in itself. The talented and skilled blogger was very candid in this interview and revealed several interesting and unknown interesting facts about his life and some of the professional world too.
1). Briefly Introduce Yourself to Our Readers.
Hi, dear reader, I’m Nakul Grover. First, I’m thankful to you for sparing your precious time in showing interest in me. Second, it’s awesome if we have ever crossed each other’s path in the past. If not, here are the three facts that you may want to know about me:
- I’ve been reading one book every week for over five years now. Some weeks, I read two or even three or four, depending upon my leisure hours.
- I graduated as a Civil Engineer only to find that it’s not the profession I could ever fall in love with. Therefore, I switched my career and currently, I’m pursuing Masters in English Literature.
- I’ve been writing on Self-development for over five years now. I’ve authored a couple of books and courses that are helping people towards personal excellence, and this is something I take pride in.
2). If you have any website or blog then please let us know name of your website or blog and please let us know how you manage the same?
I don’t manage my blog. I just let it go with the flow. Moreover, I’m in a habit of writing 500-1000 words every day. Though I’ve not followed a strict blogging routine, I often write just after waking up in the morning. For me, morning is a blessing.

3). Kindly let us know what are your hobbies?
People are confused with the word “hobby”. They think that hobby is linked to an activity you are interested in. However, I believe it’s something that triggers your enthusiasm. And my hobbies are what fill me with a tremendous level of energy. That pumps me up and the time suddenly stops. That makes me forget about my sleep, food and the world around.
Time-to-time, my hobbies varied. Earlier, I was enthusiastic about Volleyball that we guys bunk the school for weeks and played it dawn to dusk. Then the time passed by and we graduated the high school, and now I do not remember if I’ve ever played Volleyball in past five years.
For last couple of months, I’m going to the gym every day. But Gym-ing is an interest. It’s not my hobby, for it lacks the enjoyment that one experiences while playing a game on the ground, running behind the ball, shouting across the field and rejoicing with friends.
Books make me enthusiastic, for it takes me to another world. I can’t live without them.
4). Who is your muse or inspiration for your creative work and who is your all time favorite personality of the world?
It’s a difficult question. Every person, book and experience I confronted inspired me in some way. In the beginning of my writing career, I widely read Khushwant Singh and Ruskin Bond. I read their works over and over again until I learned the nooks and corner of writing profession. I remember reading “Love and Sex” by Khushwant Singh twelve times.
Over a period of time, I got better in reading and explored other genres – spirituality, self-help, thriller, romance and so on.
Every book I laid my hands on empowered me towards creativity. It would be unfair to others, if I mention a particular writer or a leader who inspired me the most.
5). What is you true love? Travel, Writing, Food, Reading, Blogging, cooking or anything else?
Travelling, writing, reading and blogging are interconnected to one another. My love for one cannot substitute another.
I love eating, but I’m very bad at cooking. You won’t believe, just a few weeks ago, I learned how to make a cup of tea. You can see how unintelligible I’m in this subject.
6). What is your success story? If you can narrate in few words so that it will inspire lots of people?
Make note of it: Success is a journey; there is no destination. No matter how much you run, you can never reach at the end. Whenever you reach a mountain, you will find that there are more mountains to climb on. Quite a fact, you cannot climb every one of them. Therefore, define your own success and enjoy.
7). Which are your favorite travel destinations, and why?
I love hill stations. I’ve been to many of them. Hill stations remind me of the beauty of mountains, forests and nature.
8). Your favorite quote?
Most of the time, we are afraid of our fantasies. We overreact in every situation. And here are the words of Charles R. Swindoll that I keep myself reminding, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”
9). Do you believe in job or business? According to you which are the suitable choice of an individual to witness success in their career?
There are more qualified people than me who can share their wisdom on both.
I prefer individual skills over business and job. If you have necessary skills, you cansecure a good job and build an incredible business. Without skills, both are uncertain.
Even if you lose everything in life, you can build it back if you have good skills. This can also be the reason why I read voraciously.
Warren Buffet, too, gives credits for his success to books by saying, “Read 500 pages every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will…” Enlightening!
10). Share your experiences of the working as Blogger in this blogging world?
Blogging is a medium through which you can share your knowledge with the world in exchange of your products and services. Content marketing works great for me. I write articles and make sure people like what I write.
I’ve been paid for what I write. I’ve not been paid for what I write. The only thing matters in the blogging world is to keep delivering good piece of information, without thinking of the results.
Also, I recommend bloggers to learn SEO, because most often new bloggers are writing articles on the keywords what people are not searching on Google. If you are starting out, find low competitive keywords and write at least 1000 words on it. Let Google index your website and rank it. These are the basics of blogging. For advance hacks, learn from the SEO-educating websites and BlogSpot.
11). How the blogging happen? If you can share a brief story of the same?
I was twenty-years old when I published my first book Superhuman in You. To increase the sales, I considered blogging as a platform to showcase my writings. By and by, I developed readers, an email list, launched a few more books and courses, and increased my sales.
12). Let me know is affiliating marketing is easy or the general blogging is easy?
Selling your own product is better than selling someone else’s product. You get around 20-30% of the commission if you recommend products to your readers. But if you sell your own product you can make profit up to 200-300%.
I can’t say about others, but for me content marketing and email marketing works better than any other form of blogging.
