Amit : If you could read only one blog, which one would you pick?

Arpit : LifeHacker : Its ultimate!

Amit : How many RSS feeds do you track daily?

Arpit :400+ feeds. Its too hard to track all of them on daily basis. So, I have created many “watches” in my default feedreader – FeedDemon.

Amit : What do you like about blogging?

Arpit :Blogging is a tool to express and share your views on particular topics. I love the democracy of Blogosphere, where we are free to write our mind.

Amit : What you do not like about blogging?

Arpit : I can’t find anything :)

Amit : What would you suggest for a blogger, who have just started his blog ?

Arpit :* Discover new things and write on them, rather than copying/stealing matters from other blogs, without giving them proper credits.

* Have Patience. You can’t get popularity or big reader-base in few weeks, untill you are Amitabh Bachchan. So, keep on blogging and don’t get dissapointed too early.

* Be first to write on a topic.

* Use WordPress. It needs a little invesment, but if you are serious and want to take blogging as a fulltime job, then can’t help you anymore. Presently, I am on Blogger, but will switch to WP very soon.

Amit :Has Blogging changed your life or personality in any way ?

Arpit :Yes! Blogging has changed me completely. I have got introduced to many things and technologies. I have got some new friends, who are much professional than me. I have learnt a lot from them. I can say that blogging is a learning tool for me. By each post, I learn something new and hence, it helps me in becoming a better techprofessional.

As a blogger, I feel a more dedicated and resposible netizen.

Amit :Where do you see Techraga in a Couple of years ?

Arpit :I want to switch to WordPress as soon as possible. I want to develope as a fulltime blogger. Plus, I want to make TechRaga a complete Tech Blog, with nice readers base and with some team bloggers.
