First Blog Anniversary

1stAnniv

I started this blog exactly a year ago, so today (June 18th,09) is its first anniversary. The blog ‘TheTechTalker.com‘, in early days was called as ‘T3c-n0-cr@t : The Blog-e-zine’. It currently contains 82 posts and 118 comments, and has more than 19,000 hits till now. Unfortunately it also attracts a huge amount of spam posts – fortunately the WordPress spam filters catch most of these.

When I took my first tentative steps into the blogsphere, I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t be able to find enough time to write. But so far I’ve managed to write at-least 3 to 4 posts a month, if not more. While perhaps not every post is a perfectly honed gem, I do try my best to make them interesting and informative.

Going onwards, I would definitely try to write more often and provide quality content.

Thank-you dear readers for watching this space, for allowing my experiences, my thoughts, likes & dislikes.

A Peak into MTV office

MTVLogoThese pictures are from MTV’s office in Estonia. This office space is the home base for MTV’s Baltic regional operations. The place is very vibrant and full of energy, unlike traditional workplaces. Does not have many cubicles and those classic workstations. If you notice closely, almost all the chairs are different from each other.

The whole place really gives a Work from Home feel..
