Prasanth Chandra

Speakbindas: Welcome to Speakbindas. Prashanth Chandra (PC). Tell us, what is pcsplace.com is all about? When was it initiated?

Prasanth Chandra:  pcsplace.com is a Tech Blog which started out of my interest to learn new things and share them with others. I got my own PC in my Engineering 3rd year and then I came across various things you can do online.

My senior in college used to be a blogger. He paid for the domain and hosting of pcsplace.com. To be frank I know nothing about blogging. I tried to learn everything by trial and error method. I am still in the process of learning.

I have a passion for technology which led me to choose this niche. I hardly worked on my blog till December 2008 due to various personal reasons. It should have been much better by now as far as ranking, traffic or income is concerned. Better late than never. I started blogging seriously from January 2k9 and the result is good.

Speakbindas: When it comes to blogging in India, people mostly take it lightly. And mostly those who are into personal circle like family and friends. How is the situation in your case? Popular as a blogger in your circle?

Prasanth Chandra:  My family is very supportive. They know what I’ve been doing online . They are the ones who gets me out of procrastination. I am happy as I am able to make money online without wasting time.

I am not popular as a blogger, but my friends call me “PC”( referring to my name which is also used as an acronym for “Personal Computer”) because of my love towards anything geeky.  I don’t like to publicize myself. So, very few people in my personal circle know what I do.

Speakbindas: Which city you belong to India? Tell us something interesting about your city.

Prasanth Chandra: I belong to a small city called Kakinada in Andhra Pradesh. Well, Kakinada is famous for its Kaja ( a sweet ) J and also deep water port and Industries. Find more here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kakinada

Speakbindas: Which is your favorite topic to blog about at pcsplace.com ?

Prasanth Chandra: I like to write Tutorials and Tips and Tricks because they are useful and will always have a reader base. Other than that, I blog about web applications, free wares or anything related to technology.

Speakbindas: What are the prime drivers for bringing traffic to your blog? How much hard work it takes to keep your blog updated with useful information, tips and tricks?

Prasanth Chandra: Main source of traffic is Google. I like Organic traffic and most of my traffic comes from various search engines. Updating the blog is not difficult provided you are abreast of latest happenings.

Speakbindas: Is the blogging giving you enough revenue to sustain entirely on?

Prasanth Chandra: I am not sure of taking this as a career but it sure provides me an option for extra income. It still needs a lot of work. I know the potential of online income as I am involved in many other things than blogging.

Speakbindas: What are you future planning for professional career?

Prasanth Chandra: I am going to join a Multi National Company as a Software Engineer. I will continue my blogging and other online works. As of now I like to stay in the software industry and also want to improve my blog.

Speakbindas: Apart from blogging, what keeps you entertained and cool?

Prasanth Chandra: I love Music , It keeps me charged all day. Whenever I get time, I like to dance. Apart from these, I am a big movie buff and also like to play cricket and hang out with friends .

Speakbindas: What place you hold in your friends group? A blogger image?

Prasanth Chandra: We never speak about anything technical.  Other than that they see me as just another 20 year guy who loves being humorous. 😀 So I am a blogger only when I am online.
