I am Dheeraj Sharma, an Avid Traveler, a Day - Night Dreamer and a Passionate Lover of Himalayas who has a high zest for driving whilst exploring new places in Himalayas & sharing back those Himalayan Travel experiences with the other fellow Travelers... I am in love with Spreading Smiles in Himalayas through DoW Causes & currently enjoying life as Happy Traveling Soul at DoW Community.
Lately, I found that using your passion to dive into the unknown and testing your limits of soul and body really boosts your individuality. Since then I never looked back. Frequently, I get on my wheels to hunt this unsatisfied hunger of rejuvenating myself in the endless beauty which Himalayas does offer to us. While traveling to Himalayas, I feel I went through a kind of metamorphosis that led to my reincarnation. I am working hard to materialize the vision & mission of DoW Travel Community with the support of all other devils of our community.

Every website has a story behind it. What was yours? What was the motivation behind starting this Blog?
Down, out, alone and almost surrendered to the most difficult phase of his life, devil suddenly thought of pursuing his passion of driving to start again @ life, take it a step further and explore if nature has the magic that can save him and turn into the person he was.
Himalayas always had a history of being associated to peace and calmness, so devil decided to have a treatment called "Nirvana @ Himalayas". He went to find the answer to the questions which haunts him every moment, top of the list being "Me or Devil??" The answer still remains elusive (conclusive to devil :)) but devil is getting closer to the same as it gave birth to DoW blog.
Do you ever get stuck when writing a blog? What do you do then?
Yes, and what I do is skip the article for the day and come back with fresh more meaningful content in next window
If there was one thing that you feel makes your blog stand out, what would that be?
I will say I concentrate more on enjoying travel than on blog. So travel come first for me and it actually helps blog stand out too in an indirect form by complementing it. Since, the ideology behind DoW is betterment of Himalayans or Himalayas, it has more to offer to everyone than running around any competition with other sites and following SEO mantras. I prefer natural writing over SEO friendly articles
If you had to give three crazy advice to budding bloggers, what would that be?
Blog out of passion not pressure, Be consistent in producing content and have patience, Follow your heart for blogging than following the theories of money making or SEO guidelines.
Do you promote your blog? What promotional techniques work best for you and why?
No, I do not have money to fund promotions J ... Whatever and wherever it is, it stands without any promotion or activities.
What do you find to be the most gratifying aspect of blogging?
It helps me live my passion each day of my life
And Influencer Marketing - what it holds for bloggers?
Opportunities to grow themselves and earn money too hand-in-hand
Engaging in influencer marketing is fruitful but most of the bloggers feel there are some characteristic problems while engaging with brands. How is your experience of engaging with brands and problems, if any?
Well, as I said, I do mostly for passion not with an ideology of earning something of it. Financials are not controlled by me rather handed over to someone else so I do not have any pressure to work on my ways only. Hence, mostly I end up out of run chase with brands as I follow things my way else no way. Whichever brands I have engaged in such terms, they respect my ideology and hard work put into any blog post. So, whosoever gets to the second phase after initial shortlisting, we both are good to more together about the assignment else leads does not come to discussion phase itself.
