Happy 2nd Birthday to The Geek Stuff

by Ramesh Natarajan on May 27, 2010

It’s been exactly two years since I wrote my first post on this blog. On the 2nd happy birthday of this blog, I would like to thank all of the regular readers of this blog for the support you’ve given me so far. You’ve been a huge part of this blog’s growth.

Leave a comment with your birthday wishes to this blog.

Over the last two years, we have written over 305 high quality articles on Linux and related topics. I have also published Linux 101 Hacks and Vim 101 Hacks ebook. For those who started following this blog recently, refer to the Best of the blog section to get a jump-start.

Our Mission

I’m highly focused on producing high quality tutorials, how-tos, tips and tricks on Linux and open source related technologies. While I’ve been working on Unix and related technologies for more than 15 years, I’m still learning and growing every day. I’m very committed to share everything I’ve learned with you. In this process, I’m also learning along with you.

Article Frequency

We were publishing consistently 3 articles every week for a while now. Starting next month, we’ll be increasing the article posting frequency to 4 articles per week.

Current Statistics

  • 25,000+ subscribers.
  • 200,000+ page views per month.
  • Google page rank: 5

These statistics were made possible only because of your loyal support.

Upcoming Projects

I’m also working on few other projects, including new eBook, forum, free Linux sysadmin course, which I’ll be announcing in the upcoming months.

Thank You! You are the best

Maintaining a high quality technical blog takes lot of motivation and commitment, which I was able to do only because of the lovely support I’ve received from the regular readers. Thanks to all the fellow geeky readers of this blog who have motivated me in more ways than you know.
