I always love to share my joy with ShoutMeLoud audience (Shouter), and this is one of those things, which is a moment of joy for me and for ShoutMeLoud. ShoutMeLoud got a mention in “The week” magazine, and I find it worth sharing it with ShoutMeLoud readers. Last month I got a call from one of the journalist from “The week” and we talked a bit about blogging, entrepreneurship and life of being an internet celebrity. Though, we talked for an hour on various aspect of blogging (off the topic), as journalist wanted to understand how blogs make money and some other usual stuff related to blogging.
Here I’m sharing the image and a little text which was mentioned in the article title “Khans, Virtually” by Shweta Thakur Nanda in May 5th 2013 edition of the Week.
Here is the text:
Apart from fame and financial gains, being a cyber celeb means self-employment, flexible work hours and pursuing your hobby as career. “What else can one ask for?” asks Agarwal. “It is, however, very difficult to make your parents understand what you are doing. It is new-age career.” But freedom comes with its share of problems. Agarwal says that the process of growth and mentoring that happens in corporate set-up is missing. And the ever-changing technology and short interest span of netizens often lead to insecurities about the future, as you are self-taught and your venture is like an experiment.
ShoutMeLoud already got mention many time on various magazine, and here is an online version of one such mention in MyOD magazine.
On the other news:
This weekend I also gave my first ever presentation on blogging at SAS Mohali (5th May 2013), and it was a great experience. More over, it was an incredible feeling to be the guest of honour at the event. Special thanks to Shankar Bakshi for making this event happen. I will soon be sharing photos and seminar videos, as soon as I get my hands on them.
I usually don’t post such updates, but realise it’s because of you “Shouters”, I’m able to achieve such kind of honour, and I should definitely share my moment of joy with you. I also put up a media coverage page to maintain an index of all such mentions. I will be doing a seminar on blogging soon, and keep an eye on ShoutMeLoud updates. You should subscribe to ShoutMeLoud newsletter, if you don’t want to miss an update regarding blogging seminar. I will be hosting it in Delhi.
Till then, Happy blogging! :)
