TechSource Site/Personal Update (2-23-2011)

- - 1 comment
It has been about a year since I last posted here a personal or site-related update. I believe my last personal note was when I changed the name and design of this site. So why am I doing this now?

First of all, I would like to thank our loyal subscribers/readers who truly appreciate the content or entries of this site. Although, I have to admit that it has not been as electric around here as it used to be, many of you remained die-hard followers. You are one of the main reasons why I'm still here and going to continue striving to give you valuable and interesting posts as much as I can.

As some of you may know, I have been promoting Linux and other free and open-source software through my writings for more than 3 years already. When I first started, Ubuntu was not yet as dominant as it is right now, and openSUSE was still my preferred Linux distribution.

Back then, I had a lot of free time that I could try different distros and write several reviews (see my Linux distribution reviews) per week. It didn't feel like hard work to me since I had (still have) a real passion for Linux and FOSS and truly believe in the importance of free and open source software. My enthusiasm was so strong that sometimes I couldn't believe I wrote and posted the following articles:

* Life Lessons Learned From Using Linux

* The Advantages of Using Linux

* 30 (Corny) Reasons Why I Love Linux

* Why Your Mother Wants You to Use Linux

* How to Make Windows Faster than Linux

* 5 Reasons Why Microsoft is Afraid of Linux

* What does Michael Phelps have in common with Linus Torvalds?

* We Don't Need Another Linux Hater

Although I still use Linux and FOSS most of the time, my energy has waned a bit. Not because I have 'turned to the dark side of the force' but because I'm now doing other new and exciting stuff that I find equally important to evangelizing people on the importance of using FOSS. I hope you get my point.

Another reason why I'm inspired to keep this site going is because the site traffic is steadily increasing. Earnings from advertisements are also better than ever. Because of this, I decided to use some of our advertisement income to help take this site to a whole new level.

Today, I would like to announce that we are hiring.

The requirement is quite simple: Anyone who can turn their passion for Linux and FOSS into creating quality and well-written articles is invited to apply and CONTACT ME.

This doesn't mean that I will completely stop writing here. The good thing about having some co-writers around is that it will give me a much-needed breathing space and will allow me to focus on giving you quality content.

Hopefully, you will keep on following me and support our soon-to-be contributors.

Thank you and have a nice day!
