  2. 2.
  3. 3. Why blog?<br />“I Want to express”<br />“I couldn’t be a journalist, so this is my media”<br />“I am pissed off with my spouse, so this is my ranting place”<br />OR <br />I want to express my view to affect people in my own way through intelligent writing and make that endeavour an economically viable alternative<br />
  4. 4. Why did I start Drishtikone?<br /><ul><li>I wanted to chronicle my times in my words for my children while affecting the people’s mindsets which are tuned to a mindless media
  5. 5. I was NOT in it for “ranting” or “raving”
  6. 6.

  7. 7. Drishtikone’s Importance <br />Drishtikone was launched in Aug, 2005<br />Drishtikone is one of the oldest blogs from India (5 years) [part of the content is from pre-drishtikone days of my blog writing]<br />Most of my contemporaries, though wonderful bloggers have stopped blogging (Most bloggers don’t remain active beyond 2 years)<br />Consistently, high frequency of content (53,400 Google indexed pages in 5 years = ~29.2 pages a day for 6 years every day!!)<br />A very flexible, powerful, robust platform for future growth as a real media platform (ability to add audios, videos, slideshows etc)<br />Its one thing to have great content on a blog - quite another to create compelling and quality content for half a decade every day without break in such large numbers!!<br />
