0 Ashish Sinha rebranded his enterprenuer blog Pluggd to NextBigWhat

Pluggd one among the top 10 Indian blogs rebranded into NextBigWhat. Pluggd is a blog which focus's mainly on start ups, entrepreneurs and small business started by Ashish Sinha who lives in Bangalore. He has written a big post answering why he re branded it into NextBigWhat. Now if you type pluggd.in it redirects to its new address. Now everything in the site changes its social media links, logos, contact emails etc.

They had suffered a loss in Alexa but still Ashish said that they are getting 75% of the traffic which they used to get with pluggd. He has mentioned that he wanted to engage with the audience in a more deeper way so he had to take this change but no legal issue of any sort. He has written a post indicating the reasons and affects of the change also mentioning what is meant by NextBigWhat. I just pasted a small excerpt from the post which you can read below.

What’s NextBigWhat?
It’s a statement.
A thirst to really dig the nextbigwhat in different technologies/business domain. Right now, if you look at the whole (startup) media space, it’s a lot about reporting/rePRing/sucking up – and we aren’t interested in that.
When I started Pluggd.in, the idea was to create a great platform for startups to get product feedback and also to connect with each other. We did and to a large extent, we can surely boast that we did it very successfully without creating a pure-play media game in the process (media=BS, FYI).
With time, our ambition has grown and it spans beyond the current setup. That is, a Pluggd.in++ (rather, ++n). We don’t look at ourselves as a media company (legally we are :( ), but a team which is curious about technology and super passionate about technology startups and digital space.
The biggest change you will see will be around the focus areas and we are certainly hopeful that you are gonna like it!
Regarding unplugged which is an event designed for Entrepreneurs remains unchanged. If you want to learn more visit here.
