2009 is gone and we have ushered into 2010, but I just don’t want to let go some pleasant memories of 2009. It was the year when Tech-Freak Stuff really got its face in the Blogosphere. Earlier, it was just another blog with content which people would find on Search Engines. But now, people come to check out what New this blog has to offer and the way in which it is presented.
Some pleasant Memories of 2009
Tech-Freak Stuff got its First Page Rank. It was a PR 1. But still the NEWS that my Blog had a PR finally got me serious into blogging.
I started winning contests organised by various Bloggers. Agent Deepak, had organised different contests on his blog and I was winning most of those. My luck was on a real high. Also, I won another contest organised by Farrhad which gave me two hosting licenses and 2 free domain names.
I finally decided to move to WordPress! Different Blogger friends started suggesting me to move to WordPress as they so that my Blog had good content but I was not optimising it properly. Under the able guidance and continued help from WordPress champ Shashak Mishra, I migrated from Blogger to wordpress. Shashank has designed this cool looking theme for me! But, one thing happened was that My PR reduced to 0.
I pushed the pedal on SEO. I knew that WordPress as a CMS was already optimised for SEO, but I started giving in more and more. My continued efforts paid off later.
Tech-Freak Stuff Became a Do-Follow blog on the occasion of Friendship day. I always wanted to gift something to my valuable readers, and I found Friendship day as a perfect occasion of converting my Blog to a Do-Follow one.
Traffic started increasing and my Visitors started commenting like crazy! Traffic had literally doubled after I moved to wordpress. I was getting positive vibes as My Alexa rank was also increasing at a Good rate. There were days when Social BookMarking websites like Stumble Upon send me 1500 visitors per day for about 3-4 days.
I thought it was the correct time to make my mark in the Social Media Scene. I started using FaceBook and Twitter for Blog promotion. These Networks really helped me get valuable advice from other Geniuses in this field. Also, the discussions regarding the quality of my Blog started coming up and getting good reviews made me real happy.
Tech-Freak Stuff got a Page Rank hike 2 just around the same time when Google created 3 Sitelinks for the Blog. This was really fantastic News for me as my blog had got a PR hike of 2 (along with 3 Sitelinks) just within 3 months of shifting from Blogger to WordPress.
One the very occasion of my Birthday, Google gifted me one more thing! The sitelinks were increased from 3 to 5. I was just not able to understand how to thank Google for such a cool gift. Within just 20 days of this, TFS got the maximum number of sitelinks Google gives to any Website[which is 8]. This was when people really started Mailing me for Link Exchanges and SEO services. I am going to start some services soon.
And with various my Articles getting published on Various Blog Networks, 2009 came to its slow end. I wont ever forget this year as it really helped establish Tech-Freak Stuff as an identity in itself.

Goals for 2010
I am going to keep this short! Only 4 goals.
1. Making atleast 5000$ from the Internet. Notice that I am saying Internet not just blogging. I am planning to earn my living on the Internet so that I don’t need to look out for any job after my Engineering.
2. Average of about 100,000 pageviews per month. It appears to be a daunting task, but I am determined to achieve it. Lets see how it all works out!
3. Creating my Image as an SEO expert and getting a PageRank of Atleast 4. (I am going to move to a premium hosting in a week’s time)
4. Handling my personal as well as Professional life at its best and finding the proper balance. I don’t want to neglect anything and want to concentrate on every important aspect of my life.
Now, what do you think about my plan? Any suggestions?
