6 years and counting

On 22nd May 2006, the first post of this blog was published. On 22nd May 2012, this blog completed 6 years. I've been too preoccupied to realize that. Today saw Saru Singhal celebrating their blog anniversary on Indiblogger and it struck me that my blog was to complete another year sometime around...

Overall the blogging is going on at a steady phase. Primary job is taking up most of the time and travel has been relatively less. The blog has about 840 posts now, about 200 were adding in past 1 year, averaging 4 posts per week. Most of the posts were travel and photography related, along with reviews.

Activities related to blogging which are worth mentioning include Tour of Nilgiris, Tata Aria Drive, Panasonic bloggers meet, Tata Grande Indibloggers meet, Tata Venture drive, Chikmagalur road trip * Malaysia trip, Valparai trip and a US trip. Also got to review few books and electronic products.

Readership has been stable, hovering around 700-800 visitors per day. Indiblogger rank is up to 87, but Google PR down to 3. Comment count is just about 3 per post on an average.

Not gaining any money from blogging, but it continues to be a medium to express my observations. Wanted to write something for print media, but no time last year.

The year ahead: Job would take up most of my time. Will manage to travel a bit, either on work or on leisure and that generates enough ideas to share on the blog. Hope I'll have my regular readers around. Due to lack of time I've not been able to visit back their blog and comment. Thanks for your readership and support as always.

  7. Congrats.. But you have monetized your blog with ADSense right? It wont fetch you any money as you have nearly 800 hits per day?

  8. Technophilo: adsense is a small unit and isn't fetching anything of significance

    Bhavana: Thanks
