The power of blogging



I always read about how powerful the blogging community reach is, but never experienced it first hand, till now.

We began this blog in November 2005 (less than 3 months ago) as a ‘fun thing’ to do. Within 3 months, we have around 600 unique visitors reading our blog, with around 350+ returning visitors. Considering its short life-span, it is quite exciting to see the reach of this system.

This has basically taught us four things:

  • People actually read stuff if it caters to a certain vertical they are interested in (in our case, VoIP, Wireless, all things convergent)
  • Humor helps – our funnier ‘red tie yapping’ articles seem to be fairly popular
  • Sharing experience is appreciated – our red-tie posts on “to-code-or-not-to” and “being a good manager” are examples of some of the more widely read red-tie articles we posted.
  • Advertising revenue works – with google ads and similar
A Note about anonymity
We have received several emails on ‘who we are’ and ‘why we keep it a secret’. The answer is simple: Just for fun. We don’t really care if you know who we are. It is just a little bit more interesting using a nutty monicker. Infact, if you google around, it is very easy to atleast know who one of us is. No big deal. Like we said, it is just for fun.

Who are you ?
If you are reading our blog, how about telling us who you are ? How is this for a deal: You tell us who you are, what you do, and I will tell you who I am and what I do (if you haven’t found out already). Our email id is corporaterat AT gmail DOT com.
Want us to write about something ?
We are not claiming to be experts, but we do claim to be fairly comfortable in the areas of technology we write about, because we work hands-on in these domains and consult with clients who build solutions for this space. If you want us to write about a technology vertical within this convergence space, send us an email and let us know. If we do write about it, we would be glad to acknowledge you (if you want to).
