I know its being obsessed with blog stats, I know some might even say that its kind of show off, when some of the blogs get around 50000 hits on daily basis, but let me say… its not a small feet for me, each of the views counts a lot for me and I really really wanna thank you all for making it happen.
Yes!! today morning, Layman’s Take reached to the landmark of 100000 views, despite of the fact that people were to bear some of the terrible grammar mistakes in my posts here (I write in one go in short time available to me, but I know thats not an excuse, taking care of that)7, but still they kept on reading and I kept on writing … many of the times, even without caring that if anyone give a damn to what a Layman thinks.
Many of us think that its embarrassing to public the blog stats, because those are not always gigantic like big names often show, but today I wanted to shout because its sure a worth for me even if, I never exactly wrote for these stats (or might be I did).
The blog started in 2006 and after writing over Indian Idol specifically, I kind of abandoned the writing for most of the times (more due to time constraints and may be due to lesser reasons to write)… which easily explains that why I got just that many views in last few years, which I am getting in one month now days. This all changed once I started to write about Smart phones and came in touch of amazing Nokia Community.
The mails from you all kept on reminding me that what you are appreciating and what you want me to write more on … those lovely conversations became such an obsession that even after spending work hours from 8AM-8PM, I managed to kept myself awake till late nights to bring what I felt worth for community.
Even after temptations, I took a decision once that this blog will never go behind advertisements ever and will be plain and simple in the way, it’s today, no matter how big or small it gets and I am still on my words. Its voice of a Layman and it will be.
This all is dedicated to Nokia, Womworld and 1000 Heads people
Do you know since I got in touch with Womworld/ Nokia, this blog has received more than 75% of its views by this year only (till now, its more than 77k so far this year), obviously I has to dedicated this to them first and then to all of you amazing viewers.
I receives dozens of mails daily (at times I was getting hundreds) over things related to sys admin or purchase of new Nokia device or just for some info or advice. Other than Nokia, I have also received a number of offers to write for some respected blogs (which I would love to, once I started managing my time more well and have more resources and contacts), received some free books and a number of invitations. Believe me, I reply each and every one of them, either I could offer something big or not, but still each and everyone of them is same important to me as I am myself.
The short post is just to thank all of you for making Layman’s take reach here and a reminder to myself that its time to get serious now.
