For the first time since starting this blog, I have crossed 500 RSS Subscribers today. Exactly an year ago, this blog had a small number of 25 readers and today the count reached to 505, with over a hundred of them reading updates through email. I am very happy to find this many passionate readers who force me everyday to come up with interesting articles here.

A small introduction for people who joined the party late:

Later this blog transformed in to a place where I share my ideas about excel, advertising, business, technology, photography, personal finance and a whole bunch of interesting things.
