Archive for the ‘Periodicals’ Category and its statistics from an year ago

leave a comment »

I was chancing to look upon my blog’s readership and it has skyrocketed in last few months. To give you an idea of how much the readership for has gone up by, Alexa rating has shown a consistent rise in my webpage ranking (it currently stands at 755139 worldwide and its India ranking is better at 58137. Furthermore, my year old blog stats shows my blog to have averaged 9999 hits way in May 2007. The current count stands at 77791.

Above means nothing if people don’t read posts. Simple page views/hits serve no value absolutely. The most important indicator that indicates the health status of a blog is its post:comment ratio. My blog’s average post:comment ratio is at about 1:2. This means, for every post I put up, I get double the # of comments. This ratio was about 2:1 last year at about the same time and it had not even reached breakeven. So, it is a satisfaction that my blog is a success in terms of these critical metrics.

Thank you, all for making this blog readable! Its only my readers who can turnaround this blog and I hope to keep you as repeat readers so the value of this blog is enhanced further!

Keep visiting back – you know where to look for me:!

Times NiE (Newspaper in education)

I was first exposed to this concept a long time back when I started becoming a news junkie. This was in school (Bishop Cotton Boys’ school, St. Marks road, Bangalore) where I did my schooling. There were journalists who were visiting us from Times of India to promote this NiE program – if I recollect, it was sometime in 1991/92. Read the rest of this entry »

Periodicals I read

with one comment

This is important to note that one can stay abreast of the corporate world and the outside business environment only if one reviews books/periodicals frequently.

In my case, I have a passionate interest since 2003 to read up and soak up as much of knowledge as possible from the reading of periodicals.

My love affair with management books dates back to 2002.

Some of the regular periodicals I frequent are:

In addition, my daily input of the Indian business climate is provided by means of the print edition of the Economic Times –
