Siddharth aka Rockstar Sid

Speakbindas: Hello Sidharth, welcome to Speakbindas. Tell us what is blogote.com all about? Carrying which purpose it was started? And where it stands today?

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid: Blogote.com is an technology related blog with updates on Internet, tips and tricks along with useful software reviews. Over the time, blogote.com evolved into an tech blog though the initial idea was completely different. Today the purpose of the blog is to give out useful articles that can bring in help to the ever developing tech community spread over the web.

Speakbindas: We have heard that you’ve a catchy nick name too, Rockstar Sid. If it was Blogstar Sid, I would haven’t asked you anything!! But why Rockstar Sid?

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid: What you wish for is not what you get every time. This was the same case with the nickname, initially my nicky was Blogstar Sid (nice guess!) but to be on the safer side I created another admin account for my blog as Rockstar Sid. Unknowingly, I published few topics from the Rockstar ID and still I use to post with the same ID as it definitely sounds catchy enough 😉

Speakbindas: blogote.com was started in the Mid of 2008, which says around an year so far. How could you gain so much popularity to your blog in such a short span of time? Alexa stats says that, it has the rank of 42,097 (As on June 3, 2009) with 218 Inbound links, which is amazing.

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid: Though I would not use Alexa.com as a measure of success but I truly believe blogote is known somewhere which without the help of few people and the efforts, would have been impossible. I don’t spend my time on writing posts (the reason for low posting frequency) and instead concentrate on trial error methods that has helped me in achieving goals quickly enough.

Speakbindas: Mostly, bloggers are not much known for blogging in their personal circle of friends and families. How about you? Have a Blogstar Sid image in your college and friends?

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid: I limit talking about blogging with my friends. In fact I never talk about blogging with anyone, the reason being the lack of interest and knowledge. Blogging was actually the most decisive actions being a totally unconsidered actions from my part. Among my friends, I am a fun loving guy who always cracks poor jokes 😀 lol

Speakbindas: Do you really think that in India, blogging can be accepted as a full time profession? Or 10 to 6 routine job is must for the society to know you’re working!!?

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid: Countries like India have immense talent. I do not say that because I am one of the talented guy around 😀 but I have seen people making a lot of money from blogging smartly enough which they would’ve never made in their entire 10-6 day job salary. Living on Job is kind of secure (exceptions) but when you know what exactly you need to do in the webosphere, then it is definitely recommended to be a full timer.
Also save your money before quitting any job. Blogging can bring in a lot of money but it depends on the level of knowledge the one acquires – for which, it takes time, a lot of time! So plan well and think twice before doing anything crazy.

Speakbindas: How much hard work it takes to keep your blog regularly updated with informative articles, tips and tricks?

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid: I usually spent 2 hours per week on the blog out of which 60% of the time is invested on researching. I know, being in Tech niche can be tough as you don’t really know what to write but once you get the hang of it, pulling topics and ideas for the articles can hardly consume any time.

Speakbindas: If God allows you to Undo one thing / incident in your life, what would it be?

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid : I believe I have lost nothing in my life. I don’t want to regret for the lost too. So just moving on with this beautiful life..

Speakbindas: Apart from blogging, what fills your the list of ‘I’m passionate about’?

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid: I’m passionate about everything. Though that would make no sense but I love almost everything.. Cricket, Custom cars, sensible books and all boy’s game 😉

Speakbindas: Bangalore, the city you live in, is indeed a happening city of India. Which are your favorite places to hang around?

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid: Bangalore is perhaps the best place where you will find some top colleges and excellent friends to hang around anytime. Favorite place is where I find my friends, we go out everywhere possible! From Forum to Garuda, theatre to lalbagh 🙂

Speakbindas: Which dishes you love the most? Any dislikes as well?

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid: I prefer spicy food. Being in South India is the best thing that could possibly have happened, I love all vegetarian dishes and dislike the home food often!

Speakbindas: Give some special message to your blog fans and readers.

Sidharth aka Rockstar Sid: Just want to say to everyone out there that you need to enjoy your life and stay happy 24/7. Love every moment of life and yea, work smartly..!!
