Tech Bangalore was one the first few mainstream blogs in late 2000s when blogging wasn’t considered serious. Tech Bangalore was created by Prashanth as a place he used jot down how-to’s for his own reference in future. Slowly he started seeing increased unanticipated traffic coming to the blog through search. After seeing this increase in traffic, Prashanth decided to spend more time into the blog and started writing various articles and how-to guides which were rarely found on Internet back then. At one point of time this blog was generating more money through Adsense than his salary.
When Prashanth left his day job to become an entrepreneur, this blog kept him going by paying the bills. With entrepreneurship taking the lead, he stopped actively writing on this blog and evidently traffic declined. There were times when he considered selling this blog when he was in dire need for money but somehow deep inside he didn’t want to sell. This blog is kept alive as a memory of the struggle he had in his early stage of entrepreneurship.
Though he doesn’t do active blogging anymore, he rarely writes in his personal blog Prashanth
