It was the toughest decision for me take in my blogging journey. Migrating your blog from blogger platform to WordPress platform. But I took the decision and now my blog, TechBreach is a WordPress blog.
I started my blogging journey in late 2011 with a blogger blog. At that time I wasn’t even knowing what is the meaning of a blog and what blogging is all about. As a result, my first blog was a piece of junk and so I deleted it. But that gave me something. I found myself more interested in blogging than before. And my new journey started.
After getting failed at the first attempt, I decided to start off again, this time with proper knowledge and planning. I searched about blogging and found that it wasn’t just a 8 letter word. It was a complete ocean of opportunities. With little knowledge that I got, I started a computer blog (this blog itself) and named it All-for-computers.blogspot.in. Of course it was blogspot as i didn’t even knew of WordPress at that time.
I started posting about softwares and their cracks and applied for Adsense the very next day. I was such a fool; I got to know about this when in just two hours I got a mail telling that my application is rejected. LOL
Then again it was break time. I took a long break, like about 2 or 3 months; I don’t properly remember. But I started blogging again in like March 2012. The blogging was going slow but steady. That was the time I got introduced with other blogger through social networking sites. It completely changed my approach.
Now I decided to expand my blog and added some more niches, like the tech-related articles, social media and blogging related articles. That helped me in updating my blog more often.
Then I bought a custom domain name, TechBreach.net on 2nd May 2012, a day before the last PR update. Then I started some serious link building for my blog to get a good PR in the next update. I read about many methods to get backlinks but I preferred guest posting and blog commenting over other methods.
I commented a lot on many different blogs and did some 10 guest posts on some highly popular blog. This gave me some great backlinks and at the same time more exposure in the blogosphere. Now I can say that many people know me as a blogger.
Finally I decided to migrate my blog, TechBreach to WordPress and take it to a new level. I migrated to WordPress on 29th July, 2012. It was a smooth process because of some great tutorials I referred before migrating.
