Chocolate and Gold Coins

Monday, August 29, 2005


Desipundit is begging for blog-love and I owe them some. They have repeatedly pointed to my posts and that really helped grow the number of readers to my blog. The reason they keep linking to my posts is partly because I knew (in a blog sense not a biblical sense) most of them before Desipundit started. I found Desipundit almost as soon as it started because Patrix linked to a post of mine, (I think it was the Finland post). Soon Saket Vaidya (aka vulturo) joined and I knew Saket’s blog very well (I linked to this post twice that week). When Ash joined Desipundit, I wondered a bit if Patrix might join also since I knew they were a pair, (little did I know that Desipundit was Patrix but I should have guessed). Then one of my best blog buddies, Vikram Arumilli joined. And I have become acquainted with Kaps (again, in a blog sense) as well.

I check Desipundit every day. It gives me the opportunity to find interesting stuff I wouldn’t find otherwise. Hopefully I’ll write a post worthy of being listed on Desipundit in the next few weeks. Lately, I seem to be striking out.

This is my 200th post, which may or may not be worthy of note.
