Bloggers Passion Successful Journey So Far
With this special post, I’m intended to share Bloggers Passion successful journey so far. Bloggers Passion was started on 1st Jan 2010 on WordPress, which is the biggest blogging platform. Tushar Agarwal was the guy who started this blog. But due to personal reasons he was unable to continue it for long. I took Bloggers Passion from Tushar in April 2011. And Since then I’m taking care of the things here.

List of Things I did so far
After taking Bloggers Passion from Tushar, I made lots of changes to it:
Web Hosting Change
Previously BloggersPassion.com was hosted on a cheap we hosting company based in India. From the day one I was not satisfied with their services as I noticed my website going down lots of time during the day without any reason. It was taking my efforts backward. I started my search for a good web host and I took advice from my online friends, read reviews about web hosting companies, their pricing and compatibility with WordPress. With my search I end up creating a list of some good WordPress web hosting companies I can rely on for Hosting BloggersPassion.com blog. From these good hosts, I believe on Hostgator and I was lucky enough to get a good Hostgator discounted deal. From that day, I’m using Hostgator web hosting on this blog has so far no complaints against Hostgator.

Change in Theme
Earlier Tushar was using a free WordPress theme on this blog. No doubt design wise it was a good theme, but it was missing lots of features I was expecting in a professional WordPress theme. It was not that much SEO friendly and don’t have much customization options available. By now, I came to know about some decent premium WordPress theme websites like Elegant Themes, Woo Themes and Thesis themes. It was a tough decision as all of these themes providers are truly professionals. But I have to make a choice, I moved ahead with Thesis theme. One reason which inspired me to use Thesis Theme over the others was because it is highly optimized.
