Going back to Basics for South Asia Blog

I guess that it is the third time that I am changing the track of this blog. I started South Asia Blog in 5/6 January 2010 with the goal of making it a quality blog about business and economy. Mehdi Hassan and Biplob Kishore started working with me and in the first 3-4 months, we really put some quality content.
Then, it became a very successful blog and in the fourth month, it received more than 100,000 page views by simply writing about Google Trends Topics and Sports and Entertainment. Its success became the cause of its problem and shared hosting simply killed the blog. At that time, it was in WordPress and then I had to go for Google Blogger Custom domain hosting. I had to delete all the content and then manually post the entries one by one.
Then I became sick and again from this March, we started writing about business, technology, hot topics in Google Trends and from March, traffic simply sky rocketed. Well, the blog has received nearly 2 million page views in the last months. It has surely brought some decent revenue but it has destroyed my satisfaction about the quality of the blog.
When I started it then I had the dream that it will be my signature blog. In other terms, it will be the blog that I would proudly show off to others and be the most important part of my profile. From today, I am going back to the same mission.
We will post only entries related to business and economy. I want to make it a useful and thought provoking blog about South Asia. From time to time, we will post entries on global economy like entries about US economy or Europe or China or Japanese economy etc. However, the main focus will be on South Asia.  
Thus, in short, we will not update the blog frequently like past but will try to post quality entries. I hope that all of you will enjoy reading the blog from now. I know that I will enjoy.
