TechPP Turns One! Happy Birthday!
Whoa! It’s been one year since I clicked on “Publish” button on this blog! And for some weird reason I feel its a long time. The morning of September 7th 2008, I suddenly took out my credit card and registered for a shared hosting account on Lunarpages which promised me hell lot of freebies including a free domain name for 2 years of hosting. I shelled out $120 which was like a huge money to spend on a hobby. All these happened in a matter of half an hour. Being instinctive has always helped me. I had to choose a name for the free domain and I zeroed in on “TECHPP.COM”, again an instinctive decision.
My life changed for the better, ever since TechPP happened. Hobby turned into passion. Passion turned into (secondary) profession. Along came money, recognition and responsibilities. A small statistical look at the year gone-by:
No. of Posts – 630
No. of comments – 3343
No. of comments blocked by Akismet – 16,897
Page Rank – 3
Alexa Rank – 20,498
Compete Rank – 31,845
RSS subscribers – 2500+
Monthly PageViews – 700,000+
I always feel unsatisfied with these numbers, but then while writing this post I just realized that TechPP is still a baby. It is just an year old. I would like to thank all those who have visited this blog and special thanks to the RSS subscribers, Twitter followers and Facebook fans. I have had opportunity to meet some wonderful people who have grown to be friends. It has been an eventful year of blogging! I have plans to grow this blog further and that would only be possible with your help.
Here’s wishing Technically Personal a Very Happy Birthday!
