From the founder
Hello, I’m Gennady,
—Yes. I’m a productivity addict. I am a problem solver. It is in my blood. It makes me happy whenever I find a tiny solution that improves my workflow. I believe that Blogely is that solution for online creators – it will save them a bundle of time and energy. My backstory is unique and varied. I feel like I lived a few different lives. Born and raised in the Soviet Union, my childhood dream was to be a fighter pilot since 12. After many obstacles, I became one.
I started flying jets at 17 years of age. Coming from a working-class family, I wanted so much more, so I had to set a higher goal. I worked hard, keeping my focus zoomed-in. I accomplished my first dream – I became a First Class Military Pilot (Russian Air Force) at 25. Later, I moved to the US to start a new life from scratch. I was learning English, working many jobs to support my family. I went through many things in my life: from having an elite pilot job to voluntarily leaving a military career behind, changing country, and starting it all over again. Working my way to the comfortable corporate position and finally swapping it for an uncertain startup… A few years ago, I decided to trade stable employment for a chance to fulfill my other ultimate dream – to be an entrepreneur. Taking risks is dangerous when you are over fifty. But, not taking the risk was more painful. I had this burning desire to succeed, a passion for making things happen. I wanted to execute MY decisions. I had a few ideas, and I decided to implement them. I wanted to contribute, provide value, feel the impact, and fill the need…
So I chose to go “all-in” without looking back – I bootstrapped my company and stepped into the entrepreneurial startup world.
Gennady Batrakov | Founder and CEO
Productivity and simplification were always the areas of my focus. I’ve always wanted to make things quicker and easier for myself, probably because I have minimal patience. It has been three years since I quit my cushy well-paid corporate job and went “all-in” in putting everything into what I’ve always wanted to do. To be independent, to create, to do it my way, and to provide a value for others. Some think I am crazy. The endless pursuit of becoming the best version of myself is compelling me to do things that others consider irrational. I believe that there is always a better solution to anything. While I was trying to promote the software we’d built, I stumbled on and endured the pain of blogging. It was exhausting: Topic research, laborious blog creation, maintenance of keywords, notes, weblinks, snippets, and more notes; the actual writing; references; separate versions without overwriting; editing; more editing; optimization; corrections. Only then, submit or publish. Until the next update. Phew!
So, Blogely was born out of frustration and pain in dealing with complexities of content creation and management.
Blogely will address those issues, the time they take to accomplish, the ease of accessing the information, and will improve your workflow tremendously. For bloggers. For writers. For copywrites. For authors. For any like-minded people who want to become better performers in what they do.
If you feel the same way as I do about productivity and efficiency, about having everything you need to get the job done close at hand and in one place, you are in for a treat. You will be amazed by Blogely’s usefulness and ability to handle complex matters. It will save every possible second of your time, time that should not be wasted. It will help you, as a writer or blogger, be more efficient, well-organized, thorough, and, therefore, more competitive in your market.

We are fully bootstrapped small startup. “Obsessed with perfection” – that is how people describe my approach to life. It’s true; I am in pursuit of making the best use of time and talent while achieving the best outcome. In the digital age, that means having the right tools. Especially for people who want to work on their own terms, remotely, on their schedule, with full control of their output. Tools abound for businesses selling “things.” In fact, we’ve made a few of those ourselves. But good ones are scarce for freelancers and others whose product is:
Words, Knowledge, Content. Imagery.
That’s where we come in. But first…
