My New Project – WP-Tweaks

It’s been a long time since my last post. The main reason for this is that I found myself going round in circles. I feel I’ve said everything that needs to be said. All new issues in India are just rehashes of the same thing over and over again. And I’m tired. I don’t think most Indians understand the true meaning of free speech, or of privacy, and I just feel like I’m repeating myself.

But another reason is that I’ve been working on a project. My new website compares various web hosting products and gives reviews and prices of hosting companies like Hostgator, Bluehost, SiteGround etc.

As a freelancer, I thought I should diversify a bit and build an income source that’s not dependent on any single client. And so I’ve been building up WP-Tweaks for the past several months and I’ve achieved some measure of success. As of now, it’s just a few hundred dollars per month, but I hope that it’ll keep growing and become a more sustainable income stream in the future.

Hostgator has been my top earner, with the Hostgator coupon code 2020 list, and I get most of my affiliate commissions from them. In fact, they offered me a partnership and a co-branded hosting page with, so that’s pretty cool!

So while I’m working on WP-Tweaks, I don’t have the energy to continue to blog about issues as I once did. Moreover, staying for so long in the US has kind of detached me from what’s happening in India. I still follow the news and major developments, but I have less “skin in the game” as you might say.

That may change if I find that I need to come back to India for good. Then issues that happen there will once again impact my life and I might go back to blogging about them! But till then, my attention is focused elsewhere. I’ve been gaming a lot, and have started keeping logs of my daily life in little notebooks. So still plenty going on! Just not enough on the blog front to post new stuff I’m afraid :(

If/when I finally settle down in a new country, I’ll most likely continue to blog about things happening there, rather than India. I guess all this just sort of points to me not being a patriotic person! I have no loyalty to any particular country.

Such is life.
