  • Hey Shankar,

    Thanks for the link buddy! Lots of great articles from KTT and MUO! Curious, are you blogging full-time or do you work/study also?

  • @Aseem: Hey there, I don’t blog full time. I’m just juggling both blogging and studying! 😉 Kinda tough these days, but still managing somehow.

    After all, blogging helps me learn a lot of new things, makes me better and gives me bucks 😉

  • hi thanks for the link back.
    i am very happy that killer tech tips gained page rank of 6 in a very short span of time and my wishes for its success.

    2000 rss readers is not a big deal at all for your talents and kkt just sit back and do what u r doing and see how kkt grows.

  • @Sankaranand: Thanks man, thank you for the encouraging words 🙂

  • Hey Shankar, thanks for the mention….
    If I remember correctly the subscriber count increased from 1500 to todays count (1975) in a couple of days….Any idea what was behind that??? Did the Social sites helped or vistitors from your guest blogging and MakeUseOf?

  • @Joel: Yep, that’s StumbleUpon magic. MakeUseOf too brings in regular RSS readers, but StumbleUpon traffic makes the count bump up overnight.

  • Congrats dear brother !!!
    My blog just got a PR4. I’m happy with that.

    You are a great blogger. You are now well established. Congrats.

    You own a blog with 2000+ RSS Subscribers,
    you keep writing @ MUO, and
    you are a wonderful twitterer..i love your tweets.

    All the best!!!
