He subscribed to so many blogs and started learning. The idea that you could change the world from your bedroom was pretty compelling to Pete.

At First, He Didn't Told What Mashable Was to His Parents.

Because of his illness his parents never asked him about what he was up to all day long. His parents never compelled him to go to university or whatever. They predicted was that he was busy in something and wanted to earn money with online websites.

He got amazing response from his own country (Britain), but soon he realized that targeting Britain not enough and for that he made a different strategy. He decided to targeting visitors from America too. If you are a pro-blogger, you can understood his logic behind doing so, hard time really good! He used to sleep only few hours in the morning at 6:00 AM or 7:00 AM. By mid day he woke up and started writing again.
