On February 27 marks the 1st anniversary of purpleandhue. And how did this start? Let me share you the specifics on how it was conceived and born. :)
I’ve been working at CISCO Systems for 5 years now and it was on my second year when I befriended a colleague who shares the same passion as I have- writing. One day, as we’re having our usual morning chit chats, I told her about the beauty the world of blogging has. I discern only a little information then, I just knew that Abe Olandres’ of Yugatech is having hundreds of thousands per month due to his existence in blogosphere. Though I know, the thing that motivates bloggers wasn’t money at all but the joy of sharing a bit of you to the World Wide Web.
My friend was the first one to make the blog thing official, she purchased her first domain through GoDaddy and mind you, her site is now making waves! At the moment, it boasts Google’s PR of 4. And what’s the best way to continue my passion? Buying my personal domain! :)
Why purpleandhue? I wasn’t totally aware when was the time I fell in love with the color purple, all I know is- it must be included in my site’s name. Purple is a strong color while hue encompasses its contrast- the very ME, a woman who comes out too strong but have her fair share of weaknesses and fears (oh, this is another story! No spoiling of my site’s first anniversary please...:)).
27th of February 2010 – www.purpleandhue.com was established and just almost a year after- it has been gauged by Google a PR of 1. Some may think that it was a slow development, a sluggish progress- the fact I was conscious of. I don’t do regular updates that’s why when my friend congratulated me of having this PR1, I was totally left in awe.
I can’t stop thanking Google though. I was almost about to stop writing and was totally on the verge of giving up on this dream when I was made known of this page ranking. In strict sense, this made me live again. :)
And as we travel more of 2011, watch out for my timely updates! Yey! :)
