Blogger Interview with Karthik of Shankrila.com
- 8 Comment
Due to a large demand I have decided to bring back Blogger Interviews. The first two I chose were obvious choices due to their dedication to BAYB.
I’d like to introduce our first as Karthik Ramadoss from Shankrila.
I asked Karthik aka K-IntheHouse several questions about blogging in general. Here is his answers
What is your age? Where do you live?
I am 30 and live in East Lansing, MI
What do you do when your not blogging?
Watch movies with my wife, play in a pool league & a volleyball league
What are your favorite blogs? What type of blogs do you usually read?
Too many to say. Technology (obvious), WordPress, SEO & blogs about blogging.
What do you enjoy most about blogging?
The sense of community it brings around a blog, making friends and the constant learning to stay ahead of the curve. Plus tinkering with WordPress!
How many blogs do you have?
What is the best feature on your blog?
Why did you start blogging?
I was getting tired of emailing my friends about the useful/fun/time wasting stuff I find on the Internet.
Now, everyone can read what I find.
Why do you blog?
What started as an attempt to share my finds has eventually helped me learn and understand a whole new world of marketing, networking, advertising, etc that comes into play in trying to monetize a blog. Plus, it has gotten my wife getting started with her WordPress development work by managing our own blogs. It’s just so much fun to watch those RSS numbers go up every morning.
Do you have any upcoming projects?
Setting up a WordPress/Web design portfolio/blog for my wife’s freelancing work.
Why did you choose your topic for your blog?
I love trying new software & web services. Now, I can tell my readers what I think about it even when it’s in beta. It’s easy to write about what you are really fond of.
What are your goals?
Where do you get the majority of your traffic?
- 50%+ -Google
- 30% – StumbleUpon
- 20% direct/referring traffic
We’d love your opinions of BAYB, anything you’d like to share.
BAYB is a great idea and I saw it early on and am a part of it. Although I haven’t written anything lately, I just need to find the time as I have tons to share with your readers. It’s a thriving community and I am proud to be a part of it.
After interviewing him, he has expressed interest in posting more on BAYB and we love having him. Stay tuned for great posts from K-InTheHouse in the future!
