Posted on April 1, 2008. Filed under: Blogging, Prank | Tags: , |

Thanks for the infinite number of pings/emails/IM congratulating me for the TechCrunch offer. But few of them, managed to guess it right. The post was indeed a prank 🙂

Wanted to finish this post with this message. Who really cares about an Indian version of an American blogger, when we have some great bloggers amongst us?

Got an offer from TechCrunch!

Posted on March 31, 2008. Filed under: Blogging | Tags: |

Suddenly things are starting to move much faster for this blog. What started as a hobby has now become a decent blog for Indian Startups. Thanks to the readers for actively supporting me and the different startups that I have profiled so far for politely listening to whatever I wrote. Today, I received an email from the TechCrunch team asking me if I could blog for their to-be launched Indian version I was so surprised that I had to confirm if it was really from TechCrunch and apparently Yes it is!

TechCrunch brand should definitely help me to cover a far greater audience and I am eagerly looking for this.

Sadly, what this means is that only posts which gets rejected by the TechCrunch team can be posted elsewhere, including my personal blog. What is next? Wait for the official response from TechCrunch about their new venture.

Update: This was just a prank!

How to make startups directory page more useful?

Posted on March 29, 2008. Filed under: Blogging | Tags: , |

Some time back, I decided to put up a page called Startups Directory to list all Indian Startups. I made it as a habit to update this page, whenever I come across an interesting Indian startup, no matter I blog about them or not. Here is the wordpress statistic for this page.


If you are thinking, I would put a graph with “One million hits“, then you will be terribly surprised. Nevertheless, the point I am trying to convey is this single page gets around 20% of my total traffic.

I am interested in knowing suggestions from my readers as to how to make this page as useful as possible.

Any one listening?
