10 Years of Blogging and Counting

Last modified on August 14th, 2018 by Joe.

I started JavaPapers in the year of 2008. Doing a thing for many years and keeping it live was funtastic!

Time has passed, so many things have changed in technology and also in my life. Back then there was feeds, now its social media. Things kept on changing consistently. Now blogging has become an industry by itself.

When I started blogging, WordPress was just around the corner, but now it rules the blog world. You can build a business depending on WordPress alone, many are doing it.

There was no such thing as viral, but now you have to make it viral otherwise you will not get noticed in this noisy social media world. In those days, all you need to do is just write and publish. Now, you need to focus on numeric things like SEO, social media campaign, video version, subscriptions and so on.

In the personal front, lot has happened in the past 10 years. An important thing was, I have found my own technology company and running it successfully for the past five years. Yes my blog helped it to an extent. 

What I gained

Sharing my experience

Little history

This is how the first version of JavaPapers looked. I have changed the design more frequently than you can imagine in the past 10 years. Design and learning are a never ending process. Look at this first version and see how primitive it is. That’s why I am asking you not to delay your launch.

    It’s been around Six years since I following your tutorial and sharing the same with my student’s and colleagues too. When I started to follow your tutorials on early day I thought to meet you too. :) I think the main thing I like in your tutorial is straight forward and very simple. and as we know that Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
