It gives me immense pleasure to say that our blog, “TechSplurge” has completed one year of its Journey. It was on 1st Jan 2010 when Kunal and I, decided to start TechSplurge. We would like to thank all our Readers for supporting us throughout this journey. By the way, wish you all a Very Happy New Year!
How It All Started
I and Kunal came in touch via Digital-Point Forums, accidentally we came up with this idea of starting our own Blog. At that time, we didn’t know much about the blog-o-sphere but the only thing we cared for, was to make this blog a medium of our passion.
The Journey So Far
The journey hasn’t been all of a fairy tale, we came across a few ups and many downs initially. But as time passed by, we learnt from our mistakes and started getting things back on track to achieve our goals.
We saw a huge surge in both Traffic as well as Revenue since August. How much do we make monthly? Well I wouldn’t like to reveal further details, all I can say is we earn just enough to run this blog smoothly. 🙂
New Theme – Less Crap, More Usefulness
We’ve given TechSplurge a complete make-over by migrating to Thesis instead of a hard-coded theme. I must admit I spent way too much time on this theme instead of doing other productive works. But I am happy with my efforts and have tried my best to make it highly useful and simple to navigate, thanks to Thesis, for it’s very easy to customize it.
Nobody likes advertisements, and we are no exceptions, so we’ve slashed the number of ads to just 2 and also blended them carefully with the theme, so that you won’t be annoyed by ads,rather concentrate more on content. Less Ads, More Content!
Friends and Idols
We (Kunal and I) came in touch with several people, among whom many became friends and many we look up to. Though it would not be possible for me to name them all,a few worth mentioning are Mayur Agarwal, Raju PP, Rishi Raj, Amit Bhawani, Binoy Xavier Joy, Sandip Dedhia, Keith Dsouza, Rohit Langde, Harsh Agrawal, Pradeep Kumar, Sunil Jain, Vinay Gowda.
Well, we’ve many things on our mind, planned for this year. As I already mentioned, our Traffic has doubled and revenues tripled in the last 5 months. We would like to keep up the uptrend and continue pursuing our passion.
To celebrate our anniversary, we’re coming up with a Giveaway in the coming days and we Promise, its gonna be Big (Well, atleast far bigger than we have offered previously – Dropbox & Memopal Premium Accounts).
