Let’s get straight to the point: this blog is dead.
You know this very well.
All of the recent articles are “outdated.” It’s true that I haven’t even visited Blogote in a couple of months. Imagine a day waking up at 5 AM in your pajamas, throwing everything in a suitcase as quickly as possible and rushing to the airport with a flicker of happiness on your face…
… you are excited because this is your first visit to the moon.
At exactly 7 AM you are at the airport. Turns out, there’s no plane to the moon. Someone sold you a fake ticket. A fake dream.
I did exactly the same thing: stopped blogging, did something else, and then something more… only to realize that I shouldn’t have done all that. Makes sense?
So who are you gonna blame for all this?
Me… it’s my fault.
You see, last year I finished my Engineering course and since then I have been working on creating a new “product.” A venture with a friend failed miserably.
Another new idea didn’t convert into reality.
I have been spinning a lot of plates to see what really works and what doesn’t. I now know what *really* works.
In this whole process I stopped nurturing Blogote. Let me do something BIG, I said. I was sidetracked by other projects and with no more fresh articles, the blog lost its momentum — I buried the site with my own hands.
But here’s the good thing: the blog still gets several thousands of visitors through search engine every day. Looking at the Google Analytics tool I can see another thousand visitors (read: readers) visiting Blogote to consume fresh information…
You must be disappointed. Who should you blame? (you know the answer…)
I have hired a few folks who will be publishing new articles… consistently. You can expect more tech news, tips and probably more info-packed tutorials in the next weeks. I’ll be writing a couple of articles as well.
To put it bluntly: I am back… Blogote is back!

On the other hand, several big names in the software industry are waiting to giveaway their products for free to you. (I have been getting a lot of emails about the contests from you… rest assured something big is on its way)
I started blogging in 2006, in my early college days. It was a summer-time hobby to see if we can generate some buzz. This *thing* clicked. And it clicked really well — a lot of “top” sites linked to the articles I wrote.
Recently, Dell featured me in its new ad campaign. Thought I’d share my story with you all:
Next few weeks (and months!) are going to be interesting.
