Taking control of life [Part I: New venture]

I’m starting up the new venture. And I’m feeling great about it; well all my past or present projects seem exciting to me but this one is special. The reason is: I am working on a project with my father. It’s about social entrepreneurship. And yes, it’ll be launched on the same website amrute.me! I’ll utilise couple of sub-domains of the site for this project (ah! Do they call it micro-site?)
When I moved from free blogging service, blogger (blogspot.com) to premium blog of wordpress with self hosting website, it was clear that I have to spend money for my publishing pleasures every year. Over the time, my articles writing frequecy reduced marginally and so my Amazon or Google Adsense earnings. Although I’ve never been a regular blogger and never expected steady income through blogging. I thought to buy domain-name to look at it seriously. That was late 2008; I booked amrute.me and moved my all blogs to pranav.amrute.me. I could never give proper justice to parent site & had to keep it static html for long 2 years. My time was more spent on serving clients than building my own website. And when you have local customers, website doesnt have ‘business showcase’ role anyways.
But this month, I’m finally working on building website. So expect my home office business on its root site. (hey, by the way did you happen to see my home office tour? Things haven’t changed much since Nov 2010. & yeah! Sorry for the accent. 😛 ) In the process, I’ll make some changes in blog- write my unfinished articles, schedule my article-series. link within the network, check some basic SEO, might add book-shelf for Indian viewers who can buy GMAT books from flipkart instead of amazon. All in all I’ll be working majority of my time re-building this website amrute.me; which also includes my social entrepreneurship project.
We have been thinking about launching an informational website related to social entrepreneurship. There’s certainly big gap in the market infact a void space if I dare say & our project could be popular & go big, who know! I’m very excited about it.  So stay tuned. You’ll see a lot of changes in & google bots gonna go crazy indexing new pages in coming months 🙂
