Exactly a year back, after a lot of permutation and combinations, I bought a domain and a hosting plan without knowing A-B-C about blogging.
The name chosen after rejecting a lot many was, as you all know, M-O-T-O-R-B-A-S-H. I did not have any head or tail clue about how would I proceed and nor did I know how and where exactly will I put up my words. A lot of burning midnight oils and swollen eyes marked the first post along with many more that followed.
Those were some very inquisitive days when I, along with my wife, kept glued to Google’s Analytics and went ecstatic when that big figure read anything apart from ‘1’. Slowly and gradually, things started rolling and from I, MotorBash became WE. I roped in a team of freelance writers who shared the same passion towards those rolling wheels.
As of today 31st December 2012, we have published 1366 articles which averages to slightly under 4 articles per day. That, I feel is a pretty decent update rate. From a Global Alexa ranking of some 11 crore (the lowest I remember seeing), we have managed to pull upto a pretty decent ranking of 1.4 Lakh. From a handful of forced friends visits initially, we are graced by around 1600-1900 visitors daily who manage to swoop up total of around 7000 pageviews.
As I said, being a novice in blogging, I still do not completely get these figures but they do look fairly convincing considering that I have to take care of my full-time office as well. Yes, blogging is not my bread and butter and nor is it the way I want it to be. I love writing, riding and driving and that is what I understand best. This is the aspect which makes me less oriented towards the money part of it and more towards increasing a reader’s overall experience on the site.
