7 Years of WordPress-ing

I just stumbled upon a beautiful message from WordPress. It has been a whole 7 years since first I joined this amazing platform. Time flies so fast. Feels like yesterday.

The first time I heard about WordPress was through a few blogs that I have been reading back in my school days and early college days. For the first few months, I didn’t even know what a blogging platform was but when I felt the need of something more than a social network to publish my designs, I had to search. Yes, that was still the Orkut era for me and I was obsessed with gothic art (I’d call it art just to make it sound a little better). Basically, I didn’t want my friends and family to see those piece of whatever (okay I have changed my mind, it’s not art) but I still wanted them to exist somewhere on the internet. Back then, the whole family shared the PC and you know what I mean.

7 years of WordPress-ing

I did not end up publishing them but it did open a whole new world of possibilities. One of them is how I make my living today.

So, thank you WordPress for this awesome ride so far. I hope we stick together for long.

Happy WordPress-ing 😉

Welcome to my digital world

Hello, world!

Welcome to my blog that will focus on “simple but useful things” in my digital life.  I have been writing blogs elsewhere about tech and social media but this is a big leap for me in terms that I will have something of my own space on the internet to share my activities and ideas. I was planing for a self-hosted blog for so long but I couldn’t make it due to different constraints. Laziness being on the top.

If you have read some of my writings on my Blogspot blog, you must have noticed that I focus on multiple topics. I feel better covering random stuff. This is something I cannot change at this stage so, expect me to go with my old style.  Keeping my habit aside, I will try to focus more on topics like social media, web design & development, internet marketing, photography, film-making, and traveling. I guarantee that random stuff will appear every now and then.

Why this new blog?

Good question! The thing is freedom. I’ve moved from a Google-owned platform called Blogger, some call it Blogspot, and I feel WordPress is my thing. It’s simple and has great features that I can use without spending a penny. I have got a lot more freedom in terms of creativity and technical aspects that I couldn’t have had with Blogspot or Blogger.

What I got new?

  • A pretty and customizable theme.
  • A few free Plugins. Thanks again to WP.

I am really looking forward to doing better with this new blog and I would like to thank the small group of people who read even my worst posts and marked their attendance by writing a comment.

Finally, don’t forget to follow me on Facebook , Twitter and YouTube.

Hunzai out.
