An Amazing Interview with Ravi Dixit-Founder of Staymeonline.com

 Want to do blogging at next level.

Then you are at right place because Today I got opportunity to interview  Problogger Ravi Dixit from Staymeonline.com.

Without wasting time, Let’s explore….

Interview with Ravi Dixit From Staymeonline.com

 

Q1. Welcome, Ravi. Please introduce yourself to our HB readers.

Hey, Lovely readers!

 I am Ravi Dixit, a full-time blogger and affiliate marketer from New Delhi, India. I am the founder of StayMeOnline.

Apart from this, I run a few other blogs as well on different niches. 

 I came into blogging because I was looking for freedom. I am not a 9 to 5 job kind of person. I knew it from the 12th standard.

I always wanted to be my own boss and work without any time and place boundaries.

 So, one day I searched about the “methods to make money online” and landed on a page where I came to know that Blogging is the most reliable way to make money online.

 I fell in love with Blogging and started reading more about this.

But it was not simple for me to start my blogging journey because I wasn’t having a laptop or computer, even a smartphone at that time. 

 So, firstly I planned to purchase a laptop so I can start my own blog. For that, I joined a job just after finishing my 12th class.

I joined a call centre where the salary was not good but I managed to save some amount and ended up buying a Windows tablet instead of a laptop.

 I failed to save the money to purchase the laptop because of having a very low salary, so I thought to purchase a table so I can proceed to start my blog.

 THEN, finally, I purchased my domain and hosting from GoDaddy which cost 1200INR at that time(because of a promotion) on May 16, 2016.

 But the tablet wasn’t working well for blogging, I planned to purchase a new laptop to make my blogging journey smooth. So, I joined a new job and this time I was getting a better salary than my previous job in the Call Center. 

 After working for 8 to 10 months, I saved a good amount and purchased a new laptop for blogging.

 This is how I started my blogging journey.

Q2. Why did you choose this niche and provide some tips on "How to pick a profitable niche"?

Well, that’s a good question Piyush!

 I have seen bloggers who blindly jump into a niche without proper research and knowing themselves first.

 Mostly they jump into the same niche which their mentor or blogger they are following is working on. 

 Choosing a perfect niche is the first and most crucial step in starting a blog.

You must pick your niche after proper research, otherwise, you will regret later. 

 When I came into blogging, I read a lot of things about blogging and all other related topics like SEO, Make Money Online etc.

It was before starting my blog, I was having a 2G Mobile and using the same to visit various blogs around the same niche to increase my knowledge about blogging.

 So, I gained good knowledge about blogging and loving the process involved in blogging.

So, my niche was crystal-clear to me.

 Here are the 5 steps process that you need to follow to pick your perfect niche:

 Step: 1 First of all, you need to know yourself. Like the things you love to do, things you do in childhood, topics you know etc.

 You can pick a pen and paper and write down all the things. 

 Step: 2 Now it’s the time to do market research about the topics you have picked in the first step.

 You need to identify whether there is demand around the topics you have selected or not. 

 According to the demand, sort the top 3 topics which have high-demand in the market. 

 Step: 3 There are many niches which have high-traffic potential but do not have the earning-potential.

 Now you need to find the earning-potential of the top 3 topics that you have sorted in your list. 

 There are tools that you can use to do so or you can make this process easy by doing competitors analysis. 

 Step: 4 Now the final and most important step is to find the competitiveness of your niche.

 Competition matters! But this is also true, where the competition is high, the money is also there.

 So, these are the 4 steps that you can use to find the perfect niche for your blog.

 After following all the four steps, you will find a niche which is perfect for you.

Q3- "Content is king" Is it true? Provide some ultimate Hacks to write high-quality content.

Yup! Content is king and always would be.

 I have been asked by many beginners that how many blog posts should I write daily on my blog?

 Well, there is no answer to this question. I always suggest focusing on the quality of your content, not on quantity.

 Because the content is king. 

 For writing high-quality content, you must follow the below points: 

  1. Write for your readers not for Google, because if your readers are happy then ultimately Google would love your blog and incentivize you with higher rankings.
  2. Do proper research about the topic you are going to write and include everything related to that.
  3. Include images and videos in your content to make it easy for your readers to understand and trust.
  4. Do proper interlinking with all your relevant articles in your blog.
  5. Do not hesitate to link to external sources where it makes sense.
  6. Include LSI keywords in your post, it makes it easy for Google to understand the topic of your post.
  7. Do not stuff your post with keywords… It may lead to Keyword Stuffing which can make a bad impact.

Q4- Google is becoming smarter daily. How Bloggers can be safe from Google Slaps.

Yes, Google is becoming smarter day by day. That’s why we need to follow the ethical SEO practices to be on the safe side of Google.

 I have seen beginners running for quick-backlink building schemes just to build thousands of backlinks very fast on their blog.

I too did that mistake in my initial days, I have shared the complete case study here…

 It is easy for Google to catch this, they can easily identify that you used paid backlinks building services and throw your rankings and traffic down…

 The best thing is to be safe from this, is to use the best backlink building techniques and build backlink from quality & relevant websites.

 It will take time, everything takes. There is no so-called shortcut. So make sure you don’t violate any of Google’s Guidelines.

 And also, make sure to keep an eye on your backlink sources.

Sometimes, people build spammy/toxic backlinks on blogs so if you continuously check your backlinks profile, you can be safe from Google Penalty by disavowing those toxic domains. 

I have shared 8 working methods that you can use to avoid Google Penalty on your blog.

    Q5- According to you, What are the awful mistakes that newbie blogger commits?

    The first and most commonly found mistake in newbies is choosing the wrong niche.

    Yes and later it becomes the reason to quit blogging because they failed to work on their blog.

     Niche is seriously very important, if you are not passionate or knowledgeable about your niche, you can’t work with that. 

     Apart from choosing the wrong niche, here are some other awful mistakes that newbies blogger commits: 

    1. Hosting their blog with a free web hosting provider. There are some free web hosting providers which you can use to host your blog without paying anything. They are only meant to be for testing purposes, they don’t provide any features that you need to host your blog smoothly. You’ll get no security, not reliable uptime, slow-loading speed and many more disadvantages. 
    2. Not investing in a premium theme, tools and plugins. 
    3. Not writing consistently on the blog. 
    4. Copying content and images from others blog without giving proper credit for images.
    5. Building backlinks from irrelevant & quality websites. 
    6. Not linking to other websites through their content.

      Q6. What hacks/strategies you use to drive traffic to your blog?

      Personally, I focus on building community and collaborating with other bloggers from the same niche to drive quality traffic to my blog.

       Recently I started doing interviews and roundup posts on my blog and I must say that I saw a good improvement in my traffic.

       Along with this, I research to find very low-competitive keywords which I can easily rank for and drive all the traffic from Google and other search engines.

       But I don’t much depend on Google’s traffic so I mostly focus on building my community and providing value to them.

      Q7. How much time does it take for a beginner to make money from blogs. Provide some strategies to earn money from affiliate marketing?

      To be honest, there is no fixed time that I can tell you about this. It depends on the time and effort invested in blogging.

      If I take my example here, It took me around 1.7 years to earn my first dollar from blogging. 

      So, there is no fixed time that will be required to make the money from Blogging. The more time & effort you invest, the fast you will start earning.

      To make money through Affiliate Marketing, first, you need to understand your audience’s needs.

      Because if you understand their needs, you can pick the right products to promote through your blog.

      And trust me, this is the key. If you are promoting the wrong product, for example, someone wants to start a blog and have a low-budget but you are promoting WPX Hosting or WP Engine then there is no chance for you to make sales. 

       Instead of this, you should promote an affordable web hosting according to their budget, like you can promote A2 Hosting or NameCheap for a very low-budget.

       So, first, you need to understand your users’ needs and budget to select the right products for them. 

       The second and most important thing is Trust in affiliate marketing, build a community of people relevant to your niche.

      Make sure you provide value to them and promote the products they are interested in.

       Do not ever promote products just to make sales, instead promote which are helpful for them and worth trying.

      Q8. I know you are not happy to reveal your income but still if you want to give an idea just for motivation?

      Yes, that’s true! I am not much comfortable revealing my income from blogging but for motivating others, I shared some payment proofs in my Facebook group and Instagram.

       I took blogging full-time from July 2019. Before that, I was managing my blogs along with my full-time office job.

      I set a goal for myself that I’ll be able to generate 5x more than my office job salary. I’ll quit my job and start blogging as a full-time business. 

       Finally, that happened in July 2019 and I quit my job to start blogging full-time. 

       If you asked to give a rough figure of my income from blogging, then I would say I am making 8x-10x more than the salary I was getting in my office job as a computer operator.

       Now you can think about how much salary a computer operator in Delhi normally gets.

      Q9. What are the tools you are using and recommend to us?

      Here are some tools that I use and recommends to others:

      1. SEMrush for keyword research, competitor analysis and other SEO tasks.
      2. WPForms for building forms in my blogs.
      3. OptinMonster for capturing emails of my readers.
      4. GeneratePress Premium as my primary WordPress theme on most of my blogs.
      5. WP Rocket for caching.
      6. Canva for designing attractive images like thumbnail and social media graphics.
      7. Freepik to download vector graphics.
      8. Elementor to design my pages.
      9. RankMath SEO as SEO plugin on my blogs.
      10. OneSignal for push notifications.

      Q10- What are your future goals?

      My future goals are to live my entire life with blogging. I want to live a free life the same way I am living now.

      Yes, there will be more amazing things coming from the next year as I am working on my first video course “Blogging Pathway” that will guide beginners to start a successful blog and make money from that. 

      I will start working on more free content like eBooks and more courses to provide as much value as I can provide for free.

      Apart from this, I am planning to set up an office and hire a full-time team that will help me with my blogs. 

       These are a few goals of mine for the next year… 

        Q11. Any Suggestions for my Blog?

        Personally I feel that you need to work on your blog’s design to make it look more professional. 

        That’s what I have as a suggestion for you.

        An Interview with Akshay Hallur: Founder of BloggingX.com

        An Interview with Akshay Hallur: Founder of BloggingX.com

        Want to learn blogging and marketing hacks ( strategies).

         Then you are at right place because I have started interview series on my blog Hackblogging.

         Today, I got opportunity to interview problogger Akshay Hallur from Bloggingx.com.

         Let’s explore..

         Interview with Akshay Hallur from Bloggingx.com

         

         

        Q1: Please introduce yourself to our HB readers?

        I’m Akshay Hallur, the founder of BloggingX (formerly GoBloggingTips). I’m into professional blogging since 2015 when I dropped out.

         As of now, I own two blogs that are both earning six-figures yearly in dollars.

         I believe in authority blogging, and it is the future of blogging.

         I also do training in blogging and content marketing. Apart from this, I’m a productivity freak, systems builder, and a fitness freak.

        Q2. How you step in this blogging and marketing world?( inspiration).

        Back in 2013, I used to wonder who creates content on the web. Once I came across the fact that it is the bloggers who create content I decided to be a blogger.

        The idea of writing about what you love on the internet fascinated me as a college-going student.

        I initially started blogging as a hobby (without any monetary objective).

        Later once I joined my university for engineering, I was hardly getting any time for blogging at all. My blog traffic was dying in front of my eyes.

        Later I took a calculated risk of me dropping out of college and take blogging as a profession.

        So all of a sudden my passion turned to my profession and this is how I became a professional blogger.

        Q3. How you keep yourself productive throughout the day?

        One thing you learned over the years is that if you manage your energy levels, you’ll be more productive.

         Staying productive starts from the previous day.

        I sleep early at night like 10 pm so that I’ll be leveraging the healing time that nature offers us.

         When I wake up, I do some stretches, take bath, and meditate in the sun for around 10 minutes (as of now!).

        This will help me set my circadian rhythm right, and active for the day.

         When I go downstairs, I update the daily log, review my goals, purpose, and plan for the day.

        Now, I’ll be batching all the tiny-teeny tasks and get them completed so that I can focus on the core things without any distractions.

         I’m a big believer in batching tasks (my productivity superpower!).

        It helps me stay focused, and embrace the “flow” state to get more creative work done.

         Other than that I do environmental design (both physical and virtual) to get rid of the time-suckers.

         For example, I have a mobile in another room when working, so that I don’t need to use my willpower to resist the urge of checking my mobile.

        Q4- What do you think will be the future of blogging?

        The future is in authority blogging.

         Start one blog initially where there’s a lack of content online, and stick to it.

         Don’t start dozens of websites as a newbie.

         If you have long-termism in mind when blogging, the success will be yours.

         It’s all about demand and supply. If you blog in a field where there’s a lack of content, and you fulfill the demand, success will be yours.

        Q5- How much time does it take for a newbie blogger to make money?

        Depends. If he follows the right system – 5 to 7 months. If he wants to discover everything on his own, 2-3 years maybe?

        Q6- Google is becoming smarter daily. So, What do you think of SEO in 2021? (some SEO strategies).

        Focus on searcher task accomplishment by creating content with intention.

        Don’t worry about the shiny new strategies. Stick to the core – good niche, good content, and HQ backlinks to validate the quality of the content.

         

        Q7- According to you, What are common blogging mistakes that a newbie commits?

        • Starting multiple blogs
        • Spamming
        • Not having patience and giving up early
        • Getting distracted with other money-making shiny opportunities and not staying persistent.
        • See more- Blogging tips and dumb mistakes to avoid.

         

        Q8- Team Building is very important to grow business. Can you share some tips on building a great team?

        • Hire slow and fire fast.
        • Hire for personality and attitude. You need open-minded people who are eager to learn. If you have closed-minded people, game over.
        • Get a content manager to manage your content writers and content publishing.

         

        Q9- Affiliate Marketing is booming! Can you share Tips on " How to make money with Affiliate Marketing"?.

        • Promote the products that genuinely are serving a sub-group of the audience.
        • Have an affiliate marketing funnel in place to maximize your sales.
        • Always remember the larger the problem that the product solves, the larger the reward for you as an affiliate marketer in terms of conversions and commissions.
        • Promote the products that genuinely are serving a sub-group of the audience.
        • Have an affiliate marketing funnel in place to maximize your sales.
        • Always remember the larger the problem that the product solves, the larger the reward for you as an affiliate marketer in terms of conversions and commissions.

         

        Q10- What are some ways to drive quality traffic? ( Traffic Secrets).

          • Target keywords that have a scarcity of quality content.
          • Build a loyal reader base in a niche so that they visit your blog regularly.
          • Have headlines that connect with the target audience so that they likely click on it. Have a headlines swipe file.
          • Do strategic social media promotion. 

        Q11- What are some essential blogging tools you use and recommend?

         For my business, I mainly use cloud apps like Notion, Ahrefs, Google Docs, Zoho Books. WordPress products like Elementor, Astra, RankMath, Pretty Links, etc. Mac apps like Keyboard Maestro, Alfred, Copy ‘em, etc.

        Q12- What are your top income sources and how much you earn a month ( if you want to reveal just for motivation.)

        As of now, 75% of my income comes from affiliate marketing. 15% would be from AdThrive (it’s growing!), and also another 10% training.

        Normally I don’t reveal my income due to personal reasons.

        But, if you closely work with me, yes you’ll get it! It’s good and growing 70% – 80% every year for the last 2-3 years.

        Q13- What are your future goals?

        As of now, we are completely remote. We are looking to expand our team and double down on our blogging business.

        My complete focus is now on training, so you’ll be seeing me focusing more on that as the blogging business is completely on auto-pilot (except for the fact I do keyword research).

        I have some other business plans too. For example, I wanna take performance systems building as a profession to helps more businesses.

        Q14- What’s your suggestion for my blog? ( If any)

        Work on your blog’s logo, design, and professionalism.

        Personal Opinion

        People loves when anyone shares his own personal opinion and experience in the blog post.

        So, provide you personal opinion in the the conclusion.

        Example #1

        Example #2

        Image is taken from shoutmeloud post.


        Give a challenge or a surprise

        People love challenges and surprises. These are also type of CTAs.

        Challenge

        Offer a challenge to your audience.

        We want that our audience read the blog post and take a quick action.

        Example

        ‘Hey, starting blogging- start writing 1000 words daily to make it a habit of blog writing.’

        Also, ask your audience to tell what results they got after completing the challenge in comments.

        Surprise

        Give a surprise element to your audience. Everyone loves surprise element.

        FAQs related to How to end a blog post


        Instead of the word “in closing” at the end of the blog post what else I can use?

        I use the phrase “Conclusion” and many top bloggers use this phrase only. Some other phrases that you can use are- Wrapping up, Final thoughts, Now what, etc.

        Do blogs have conclusions?

        Yes, obviously 80-90% of blogs have conclusions.
        Without a blog conclusion, it’s hard to make a good connection with the audience.
        If the user comes to your blog post try to best to convert or bind it to your website.

        Why summarizing a blog post is important?

        Generally, when the audience starts reading an article ( especially long-form) they forget what they have read when they reach the last of the article.
        So, giving a recap or summary helps the reader to memorize the main points easily.
        Wrapping up a blog post also helps in increasing comments and shares.

        Confused about investing in Divi or How to use it?

        Then this Divi tutorial is for you. In this article I will show you How to build a WordPress website with Divi.

        My best decision when I started Blogging was to invest in Divi ( I arranged money and invest). If you are still thinking to invest, then my dear friend ‘Don’t think Just Act’

        Why I should invest in Divi? Becuase, Divi is the “World’s popular theme”. Don’t believe, just see the proof-

        DIvi is the world popular theme.

        Let’s explore Divi

        Divi Review

        I invested in Divi when I started Blogging and I am loving it. The great thing that I liked about Divi is their support. Let’s talk about it’s Pros and Cons.

        What we like about Divi

        Drag and Drop Builder

        You don’t have to be a designer, you can design effectively and easily with Divi Drag and Drop Builder. Divi Builder makes the complete pack value for money.

        Pre-made Layouts

        Divi comes with hundreds of beautifully designed layout packs that you can use to jump-start just about any type of website.

        Updates

        Divi keeps on updating their products time-to time, so that they become compatible with latest version of WordPress.

        Premium Support

        I am a lover of their support. Whenever I face issue, I just start a conversation with them and I got my problem solved within 2 minutes ( available 24/7)

        Unlimited Websites

        I see many other theme companies charging more for more websites, But you can use Divi theme and it’s plugins on unlimited websites. ( No extra License Required).

        Money Back Guarantee

        If you don’t love Divi themes and plugins then you can ask them for a refund within 30 days after payment ( No questions asked).

        Plugins

        You don’t require to invest money in any social share plugin and e-mail capturing plugin. Because, you get access to Bloom and Monarch when you buy their Pack.

        What we don’t Like

        Not that Easy

        For Beginners, it’s hard to understand “How to use” in starting. ( But, this complete tutorial will help you, read till the end).

        Migration

        It’s difficult to migrate to another WordPress theme. When you switch, you have to design your website again ( I am loving it, I will never migrate).

        Install in WordPress

        Before installing, first we have to buy this theme. Now, you have two options.

        Divi pricing

        First is Yearly access and second is Lifetime Access.

        Buy any one pack according to your budget. This price is when you signup directly from the Elegant themes, But if you signup from my affiliate link you will get 20% discount.

        Divi pricing on discount

        After signing up to Elegant themes membership, you will receive a e-mail.

        Login to the Elegant themes member’s area.

        After that downlaod these three .zip files.

        Download the divi theme, bloom and monarch from divi member area.

        Now, Let’s Install these in WordPress.

        Install Divi theme

        Add new theme in WordPress

        Appearance 🡺 Themes 🡺 Add New 🡺 Upload theme 🡺 Upload Divi .zip file 🡺 Install and Activate.

        Install plugins

        Upload plugins in WordPress

        Plugins 🢂 Add New 🢂 Upload Plugin 🢂 Upload Monarch and Bloom .zip file 🢂 Install and Activate.

        Divi Tutorial for Beginners

        Let’s design the blog.

        Divi builder tutorial

        Go to Divi Theme builder option from the WordPress Dashboard.

        Divi Theme Builder

        As you can see above I have designed different header and body for Homepage, All posts, All Pages and for specific category pages.

        See, the difference in Header of homepage and posts.

        Hackblogging Header

        While the posts Header looks like this-

        Hackblogging posts page

        So, you can build different headers, body and footers for different pages and posts.

        See- How to start a blog?

        Now, Let’s Build a template.

        Add New templates in Divi theme Builder

        When you click on it different options will appear. From those select options.

        Let’s say I select All Posts option

        Now, click on Create template

        Build Header

        Now, Click on Add Custom Header 🡺 Build Custom Header. Three options will appear

        Start building custom header in divi

        Select Build from the Scratch option. Click on Start Building. ( if you are building homepage or landing page then you can choose a premade layout)

        Now, there are many rows options. So, I will select a option with two columns.

        Image Module in Divi

        If you wan’t to explore all the modules then See- The Complete list of divi module.

        Select Image option and add your Logo Here.

        After uploading the image (logo)

        The logo uploaded will be larger in size (width). Go to design option 🡺 Max. Width and decrease the width.

        Let’s design right column

        Now, for navigation I would like to add menu in right column. For that, you have to firstly create Menu.

        Go to Appearance 🡺 Menus 🡺 Add categories, posts or pages 🡺 Create Menu ( I have already created). Now Click on Menu option from Module in the right column.

        Now , I want that the menu to appear at the right side of the column. See, How to do it.

        Spacing option in menu settings ( Divi)

        Something is missing. Hmm, Yeah it’s search icon. Go to Content Section 🡺 Elements 🡺 Enable Search Icon

        If you want to add the background then just Select the Row Settings 🡺 Background 🡺 Add Background Color or Gradient.

        If you want the row to appear forwards then Go to Design🡺 Box Shadow 🡺 Select the shadow that you like.

        Blog header

        My Purpose is to give you direction. Explore all the options and make its look better. ( Design your own way).

        When your header gets complete-

        Click on three dots ( purple color)🡺 Save to library option ( download icon).

        After saving to library, Click on Save button on the right ( Green Color) and exit.

        Build Custom Body

        Now, it’s time to build custom Body. The Process is same

        Click on Add Custom Body🡺 Start Building🡺 Click on plus sign 🡺 Add single column🡺 Add Post Content module

        Post content module in Divi builder

        Why we selected this Module? Because we want the content that you write in the “WordPress posts” to appear in the Body section.

        But I want the content to appear different in mobile and desktop. But How we do that?

        Do you want your post content to appear in a box like this-

        post content in blog posts

        Let’s do it-

        Firstly we will optimize the post content for desktop. Before that, if you want to change the Text font Just,; Go to design option🡺Text option 🡺 Select text font ( Similarly change all heading text font if you want)

        It’s simple to make the post content appear in a box.

        Go to Post Content Module Settings 🡺 Design 🡺 Box Shadow 🡺 Select first shadow.

        But Content looks too much wide. No worry, Just decrease the width.

        The best option that I like in Divi is that you can optimize sizing and other options differently for desktop, tablet and phone.

        It’s done. Now, Let’s optimize the post content for mobile.

        What if you want the box shadow to appear in desktop but not in phone. ( Box shadow looks good only in desktop).

        For that Design🡺 Box Shadow 🡺 Box Shadow Spread Strength 🡺 Select Phone option🡺 Decrease

        Explore more and design it in your own way.

        Build Footer

        I think you have got an idea of how to design your blog with divi bulder.

        Similarly, Build Footer ( I think now it’s not a big deal).

        Similarly Build Homepage header, body, and footer. Keep in mind that in Body section ” Select Blog module not post content module”

        Writing Posts using Divi Builder in WordPress

        Go to Posts section in WordPress dashboard🡺 Click on Add New 🡺 Select Either Divi builder or default editor. ( I generally write posts in default editor)

        Writing posts using Divi Builder in WordPress

        If you select Default editor, What you can do is add Divi layout between writing in Default Editor ( It’s great)

        Insert Divi Layout in WordPress Default Editor

        The Attractive buttons that you saw above in posts are build using Divi builder ( Divi layout 🡺 Build New Layout🡺 Start Building🡺 Fullwidth🡺Button Module).

        Now, it’s time for the Bonus Hack that you should know.

        Bonus # Mobile-Zooming Hack

        Everything was going right, But one day I open one of my posts on my smartphone. I start reading the post.

        Now, I notice that I was unable to see the image (screenshot). I tried to Zoom the image but it was not zooming.

        Then I contacted Elegant themes support and ask ” How i enable zoom feature in my posts”. They replied-

        Theme Options 🡺 Integration🡺 Add code to the < head > of your blog ( Paste the code below)

        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=2.0, user-scalable=1" />
        Enable pinch zoom on mobile from Divi theme options.

        Do you love this hack? Comment

        One Request- After Buying Divi, give one day and fully explore it. I have already done the work easy for you. If still you found any difficulty while using Divi, Just contact Elegant themes support.

        Divi is full of features, it takes time to master it. I am still learning new things in Divi daily. Keep Exploring and learning.
