Hello and Welcome to the New Balkhis.
I started this blog in 2008, but ended up abandoning it in 2010 due to increase in workload and other projects that I had such as WPBeginner.
I thought about relaunching it in 2011, 2012, and well you know how the story goes. In the recent months, I have found myself searching for a proper avenue to express my thoughts and share my experiences however all of my other sites are extremely niche oriented.
Ding, ding, ding. Here’s an idea. How about you start blogging on your personal blog. D’oh.
I was on a podcast interview with my friend Chris Brogan when he decided to call me out about the inactivity of my personal blog. That day, I made a goal to relaunch Balkhis.
Weeks passed, but this darn thing kept on moving down in the list of things to do.
Finally, today I decided I have had it with the procrastination. I decided to issue myself a personal challenge. Since I hate losing, I knew this would work. I gave my wife $100 dollars and told her that she can do whatever she wants with it if I don’t start, finish, and launch the new design by the end of midnight today.
It’s 9:30p.m as I write this. I’m done and done with the redesign.
My goal is to write at least one post a week where I share my insights on various topics revolving around business, marketing, blogging, and social media.
So what’s next?
Well, first you can start by following me on Twitter (@syedbalkhi). Ofcourse I will tweet all my recent articles.
However, I know that twitter can get crowded. This is why I recommend that you join my weekly newsletter, so you don’t miss a single update.
If you want me to write about a specific topic, then please let me know by leaving a comment below or tweeting at me.
