Happy 1st Birthday to The Geek Stuff

by Ramesh Natarajan on May 27, 2009

1st Anniversary of the BlogOn the 1st Birthday of the blog, I would like to sincerely appreciate all the support provided by you to keep this blog going. Exactly a year ago on this day (May 27th, 2008), I posted my first article 5 Basic Linux SSH Commands on the blog.
 
Now the blog has over 120 high quality articles on Linux and open source. I was also able to publish my first free Linux 101 Hacks eBook. Please refer to the Best of the Blog section to check-out few of my articles.
 

It has been an awesome journey so far with lot of exciting sleepless nights. The sleepless nights are partly contributed because of my sweet little daughter who is little over a year old now. :) For those who are new to this blog may be interested to know more about me and the blog.

Article Posting Frequency:

I was able to consistently stick to 2 high quality articles per week for almost an year and I’m planning to maintain the same frequency.
 
Apart from the regular 2 high quality articles per week, I just started the HowTos & FAQ section, where I’m hoping to post 1 or 2 quick how-to posts per week based on the questions that I receive from you. If you are interested in contributing to the HowTos & FAQ section, please send me your questions using the contact form.

Current Statistics:

  • 10,000+ subscribers
  • 60,000+ unique visitors per month
  • 120,000+ page views per month
  • Google Page Rank: 4

Without your awesome support, these statistics would’ve not been possible. I’m hoping to increase these statistics with your help in the coming months.

Thank You! You are Awesome.

One of the main reason for me to keep this blog alive and running is the tremendous support that I’ve received from all my dear readers. I sincerely appreciate your support.
 
Please leave a comment with your birthday wish to the blog.

I wish the blog many more happiest birthdays.

It is a very good experience for me over here. I first learned a lot from this blog such as linux related tips, productive tips and so on. And became a regular reader & contributor after reading the article 15 examples to master Linux command line history. Now am writing the vi/vim tips and tricks and some more over here.

I wish all the readers happy learning for many more years.
