That’s why I appeal you to bring most of things at your domain under GPL as it is the very nature of Internet that must be left open, free, fluid and live for the rest of humanity
I welcome you Amit at SANGKRIT.net, please tell our netizens about yourself.
Hi Shardul, first of all thanks for having me on your program, and it’s a pleasure to be here. I’m Amit Kumar from Ranchi, jharkhand. I’m an Engineering student (Electronics and telecommunication) and part-time blogger. I started my blog in 2013 with fun and now for the past 6 months it has become a passion. Now i am blogging aggressively and spending rest of time on my blog after study.
How exactly your idea sparked to register howtouncle.com?
Actually I am living with my four senior mates who all are Computer Science Graduates and doing job in Software Companies. Regular discussion with them on various technology topics and problems gave me an idea to share technology tips with people, thus i started to write tech tips and tricks on blog for the regular use of people.
At the beginning I blogged in blogspot blog (Howcanstart.blogspot.com) for one month and after seeing the readers appreciations, lovely comments I redirected my Blogspot Blog by a Custom Domain name which is now Howtouncle.com. All this was possible due to the motivation of Sourav sharma (the founder of IndiaMapia and full-form.in), who supported me in every step and he is like my big brother.
What is the story behind your domain name? Why you chosen this name?
Usually in college we always use this type of sentence like “what’s going on uncle” or “what’s an idea uncle” to tease our friends. One day when i was talking with Sourav sharma about selecting a domain name, he involuntarily said Howtouncle is also a nice name, you can choose it. I also realised, yehh this is quite familiar name and thus i selected this name for my blog.
How many people got associated for working together on this domain?
Currently I am working alone on my blog but very soon i am going to hire talented and expert bloggers to attract a great deal of readers from all around the world by providing them a complete tech support.
What philosophy drives you doing this?
Simply i would like to say – this is a thought of mine, I want to share complete and valuable tech information for the people of all across the world. I am focusing and i will focus to provide all tech support such as technology tips and tricks, Windows tips, computer tricks, mobile tips, android tips, latest updates on my blog.
How much time you spend working on your domain? What efforts you make for driving traffic towards your domain?
I spend 2 to 4 hours daily on my blog. I am concentrating on writing quality articles and promoting them on popular social media platforms like Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest etc.
What makes your endeavours unique on Internet?
Every blog are experimenting with their readers by sharing various zigzags materials. But i am not doing any experiment, i am just trying to provide solutions for those tech problems which people encounter in their daily life while using computer/laptop, smartphone, online services, online accounts and all other technology stuffs. I always write my article in very simple English along with step-wise Screenshots.
Is there any more projects you are currently working?
No, currently I am not working on any other project. I am just busy with my study and my blog.
What is your ultimate message for netizens?
“Work Hard, Success will Follow You”
