Revealing The Stuffs is one year baby now. Thanks a lot for your wishes! It won’t be possible if you haven’t encouraged me by visiting, commenting and sharing my posts. Blogging is an activity which taught me a lot of new things in my life. My English improved (sorry if I’m wrong :P), I got several international and national friends and much more.
In this post I’ll be telling the complete story of how this blog created and emerged and finally I’m hosting a giveaway that will benefit bloggers.
Story of how the name Revealing The Stuffs created:
This won’t be the lengthy and boring story, don’t worry 😉
Revealing The Stuffs is not my first blog, but it’s my first blog. Confusing? The name of my first blog was “Fun at all” (Sorry for the hilarious and stupid title :P)
I’ve hated that name myself and changed it to “Stuffs Amazing You”. I’m afraid of purchasing domains online, in that time. I’ve read an article on how to get your free .com domain name. I was curious and rushed to the website and successfully registered the domain name “stuffsamazingyou.com” with the domain registrar “Intuit”. They were offering free domains name that time. Later I’ve read somewhere which made me afraid of having domains at Intuit. I can’t transfer the domain name anywhere, because, according to their rules domain names could be transferred only after 6 months of purchase. So I dumped the domain name.
Then I started thinking of some other domain name that could be brand-able. Some of the names I come across are: How Stuffs works, Awesome stuffs, Useful stuffs. But many of them are already registered. Then suddenly I’ve thought a new name “Revealing The Stuffs” and searched for http://www.revealingthestuffs.com, whether it was already registered. Luckily, it wasn’t registered. Immediately I changed my domain name in blogger from “alltimethefun.blogspot.com” to “revealingthestuffs.blogspot.com”
Story of how the domain name www.revealingthestuffs.com registered:
Some weeks gone by posting some silly articles in my new blog. Then I got a new friend, Navneet Viswanadha. I’ve found his email address in his blog and invited him to the chat. He seems much friendly. He informed me about the .com domain giveaway on his blog and I submitted my entry. He didn’t got enough entries for the giveaway and he closed it. Some days after he was registering the new domain name techravers.com and he asked me that he will be registering the domain name for me too. I was damn excited. He registered the domain name “revealingthestuffs.com” on 18th September of 2012.
Navneet’s domain name: Techravers
Story of how I moved to WordPress:
I was on blogger till 2012. Navneet asked me whether I’m willing to blog on WordPress. Those days, I don’t even know how WordPress blogs look. I really wanted to try WordPress and asked him to host me on his web server. Then I moved to WordPress. Till 25th of this August, I was on his host.
My overall earnings from Revealing The Stuffs:
Speaking truly, I don’t even made even a cent with this blog. I don’t know whether it is due to my laziness or lack of monetizing strategies. I heard from some of my friends “Don’t go for money at the very beginning, Become popular and money will automatically follow you” This made me to do blogging continously without thinking of money.
