techXtreme is not going anywhere!

I had expressed my eagerness to switch to WordPress as soon as I could, importing all the posts from this blog to www.inspiritblog.com (yep, that's the secret,revealed!) and I had almost accomplished that (with lots of help from Leo of FEEDEST.com, that I am thankful for.) But today, after some deep thinking about the whole process; what it was going to change, what had to be done in order to efficiently manage all the changes it could make across various systems, techXtreme has been indulged in; I have decided to keep techXtreme intact and normally running. I have reverted all the import-jobs at Inspirit Blog from techXtreme and kick-started it afresh!

There are many reasons behind why I have taken this step:

  • I am pretty much in love with techXtreme. I have created and then deleted many blogs till today, but this is the only one that I care the most about, the only one where I enjoyed writing at out of all, the only one that I have worked so hard on. Its the only one that has lasted for so long and has been so well.
  • Its the only blog that has given me real money! I have bought the domain www.inspiritblog.com from the money that I earned from this blog! The small though satisfactory success of techXtreme is one of the inspirations for InspiritBlog.
  • It would be messy to redirect the techXtreme page from blogspot to the new domain. The redirect will work fine on the techXtreme's home address, but any links to the individual posts won't work and hence would be lost. Such links to individual posts at techXtreme are spread far and wide on the internet and continue to help hundreds of readers regarding some issue or the other, that has been discussed here.
  • I would have to change the listing of techXtreme at many many services and it would be quite hectic and more of a head ache to do!
  • It would be a challenge to simultaneously maintain two blogs with exclusive content and to develop both of them to success. Community development, gaining and maintaining readership and most importantly learning from both, would be adventurous and fun!
Express your good opinion about it.
