, a Website Development and Research Firm based in Mumbai, recently interviewed me by sending some questions over email. Here is a small extract: Q. What motivated you to start blogging? My love for writing led me to start a blog. In early 2007, blogging was not as common a term in India as it is today. But in the World Wide Web, blogging was very much active. I followed Problogger Darren Rowse’s blog religiously and read almost all the 5k posts there. I realized that blogging can be a great medium to express our views as well as share our expertise.

The success of a blog is usually judged by the number of feed subscribers it has. And a blog is said to be quite successful when it has at least 1000 subscribers. Yesterday, this blog surpassed that amount. So, finally after almost 2 years, I can happily say that my blog has not been a failure! (more…)
I had been thinking about introducing this feature for a long time, though never actually got about doing it. But finally, here it is live for you as much as it is for me! Recently, I lost a very good friend forever (and much more)... though for the purpose of this blog, it suffices to say that I lost a good source of new songs which are perfect for the guitar. I needed help on this, so I thought why not ask it from my beloved readers? Photo Credit: Amma. Stephie Val (more…)
