Today we are celebrating 2nd anniversary of TheMaverickSpirit.
Yes! 2 years ago on the same day, 12th December, we started our blogging website.
It has been a long and crazy second year and we can’t believe how much this blog has grown and how much we have learned.
Cheers to all of the hard work that we have put into this lovely space.
Back in 2016, we planned to launch our website, booked our domain and hosting from HostCron. We got our blog TheMaverickSpirit live on this very day i.e. 12th Dec for $45.
There was a lot of planning and brainstorming going into the blog launch. At this time of writing a blog we have realized that drafting a post requires a lot of work.
From pre launch to now, it really hasn’t stopped. And even after two years, it is still so much fun and something awesome we look forward to every day.
We like to celebrate every little accomplishments to big achievements on our journey with you.
And why we should not share? After all it takes all the late nights and hard work to achieve them.

How We Monetize From Our Website?
We know many of you wonder on – “How we make money from our blog?”
This is a very controversial topic as our families kept asking the same question to us!
We believe that one should not start with the intention to make money. If you start a blog you need to be authentic and genuine to your blog audience.
Doing so, you increase your popularity and branding visibility gradually with time.
We almost turn down 95% of any offers for sponsored posts or even people asking for us to add a link to our existing blog post or listicles.
We always support the best tools and services that will give benefit to our readers in one way or another. We would never want to lose the trust of our readers by suggesting them tools that
That being said, the amount of money we could make from this blog would be significantly more if we took every offer or even reduced our acceptance rate by a little bit.
We hope this clears some questions up for all of you.
