On Blogging...

As more of my friends find out I have a blog, they ask me how much I earn from it. To clarify, this blog is a hobby. It was never meant to be about money. I learnt the concept of a blog from Dave Winer around the year 2001. He is considered a proto-blogger. I've had a blog in some shape and form since 2001 thanks to him. Having a blog turned out to be the perfect outlet for me to write down my experience of working with computers.

This blog is a hobby. It does three things for me. First, its a way for me to write, which I love. Second, it lets me have a voice, as small as it may be. Third, I get to log my daily technical learnings. Its not about money! I hope we are clear about that.

Now read and have fun. Best part of the blogosphere is that if you don't like what you read, or if it isn't any fun, you can always unsubscribe.

And now, I can just point my friends to this post every time they ask why I blog!
