Blogging for the Bloggers
August 19, 2009
I have started making frequent and regular posts.
Maybe not on my own blog here, but that’s besides the point
Ashish Sinha from Pluggd.in and Kiethh Dsouza from Techie-buzz.com had sent out a call for Authors for their excellent and growing blogs. I applied to both the blogs and to my genuine surprise both of them readily accepted. Interestingly enough, I was following both Ashish and Kieth on Twitter since quite some time now.
I am a very frequent visitor of Pluggd.in, a regular commentor there and also have a had a chance to communicate with Ashish on a couple of occasions earlier. Pluggd.in mainly covers entrepreneurial and start-up related stories and news. I have joined in to add some geekiness to the blog. Starting with introducing the readers with various concepts of the open source world, I eventually plan to start interviewing prominent Indian personalities from the Open Source world, some major Developers and possibly even start-ups who are making their mark either by leveraging the Open Source power or actually deploying an open source service or product.
Take a look at a few of the recent posts I have contributed to at Pluggd.in :
- Open Source – Success Stories, Business Models and Why you should Care
- Build your very own “personal” Twitter Like Service
- Open Source Mobile Platforms – The Complete List
- Most Popular Open Source Non-Linux Based Operating Systems [List]
- POSIX Distributions Part 2 : Closed Source(Proprietary)
Techie-Buzz.com is a fun site. It has tips, quick How-Tos, news and sundry other stuff for all kinds of technologies, ranging from Linux to Windows to the Web to Social Media and Networking. I used to often end-up on Techie-buzz whilst finding some peculiar problem I was encountering with my Windows setup. At Techie-buzz.com , I plan to write about a wider range of topics ranging for Linux and Open Source softwares, iPhone , Hacking firmwares, etc. I just have a couple of posts out with a lot more half-drafted :
Let me know if you guys like what you see. Feel free to comment on the articles and definitely subscribe to their RSS feeds or sign-up for their Email Newsletters.
Also, I’d love to know what kind of posts would you like to hear in this space , over and above the topics I have mentioned above ? Any other suggestions and/or tips for a budding blogger ?
