100 reads, and the commercialization of blogs...

"I never thought I'd get this far."

I am now at the threshold of a 100 reads. 10 articles. You didn't clear the JEE to do this sort of math... but yeah, it is an average of 10 reads an article. Now, most of those have come from me holding a gun to people's heads(only figuratively of course) and telling them to read my blog... but there are some who are actually interested in the sort of crap that spews out of my head at the most inopportune times.

To those, I extend my heartiest thanks(wtf is a hearty thanks anyway?!) and am deeply indebted to you for your support. I am also going to attempt to commercialise my blog a bit. Now before you run around in front of me with a banner saying SELLOUT... I would like to clarify. I am going to use tags to identify my post to some search engines, which would in turn enable more people to read my blogs.

The only sort of advertising that I have recourse to is word of mouth of course. Which is not a bad thing because it puts me in such exalted company as Google...and of course Lehman Brothers... I am also going to use SEO's which stands for Search Engine Optimization technology. Yes, that does mean a few blue lines here and there...akin to Wikipedia...and like wikipedia, completely non-profit. Oh, yeah, please don't compare this to wikipedia.

I am also toying with the idea of introducing a few gimmicks on the site. Like polls. Or images...some sort of multimedia at least(NO..that does NOT include redtube..ffs). Maybe the first poll will be about whether to include multimedia, or not, or should it be about whether to have a poll in the first place. And of course..you can now access this blog at an easy URL:

Happy Reading.
