abhishek bhatnagarSo here is Abhishek Bhatnagar, a Software Engineer by profession and a Tech Blogger by passion. He is actually a good troubleshooter for many computer, mobile phone problems that people face and ask him. I always see him talk about gadgets, technology but he is not only a tech geek. He sometimes talks about movies, music etc. on twitter so an interesting person to talk about.
I asked him for the interview and he accepted it. Was a good one with him. Check out his main blog @ Technix Update.

Here goes the interview –

Some insights on your personal background?

I am software engineer by profession and blogger by passion, I love fixing computer troubles for a long time, has been playing with computers troubles for 4 years now.

Since when are you blogging and which is your only main blog? Tell something about it.

In the blogosphere since late 2006, I started a tech blog on my first blog on blogspot which got shaped to www.technixupdate.com which is a technical blog now on which I write about computer tips and tricks and general hacking tutorials.

Was blogging your passion or profession or there was some inspiration behind your blogging habit?

I got inspired from the most famous Amit ( labnol.org ), I started blogging through blogspot then got supported by one of the top indian blogger, sorry but I cannot reveal the name of that person.

He helped me moving from blogspot to wordpress paid hosted server and also helped me maintaining it, as I was a newbie for wordpress at that time.

  8. Chetan says:

    @abhishek: People would know each other if they are on Twitter! That’s my thought :p

    I got to know about most of the tech bloggers and interact with them through Twitter! 😉

  9. Great stuff Chetan…..Hope to see some more Indian bloggers making big

  10. Amit says:

    He may be a great blogger, but I don’t consider someone a true blogger if he writes comments on his own blog (with other names and bad links) to promote his blog ..
    everybody is not so honest like you and your Big B, Chetan 🙂

  11. Sherry says:

    @Amit: @Amit you are right.

  12. abhishek says:

    @Amit:

    Hi, Amit

    Well i never need to promote my blog with things like this, there could be some comments which are missed by the spam filter. If you seen anything like this please let me know i would love to remove them all.

    I have many blogs and some times it becomes difficult to catch some comments which contain bad links.

    I my knowledge i don’t have any of these post which have bad comments.

  13. Chetan says:

    @Sherry: Can you explain what Amit was trying to explain and what you saw to support him?

    I can’t find anything like that, and techies generally don’t like to fill their pages with commenting on their own. So can’t just agree with Amit firstly, and then you!

  14. Sherry says:

    @Chetan sorry earlier I didn’t elaborate on what I agree. I agree on everybody is not so honest like you and your Big B, Chetan

  15. Varun says:

    @Amit: how can you say that he comments in his own blog, with different usernames????
    Can you prove it

  16. Sherry says:

    I got to know a blogger that have a bad comment in her blog and the person put in another name to comment her blog but using the blogger’s blog name but with different spelling. You can’t track whose the person at all. It’s blogspot blog. So I think the person that comment in her blog using other name to comment.

  17. BM says:

    that’s not right.

  18. Amar says:

    @chetan

    Yes you are right, you become friends on twitter easily 😀

    M gonna get few more friends from twitter now

  19. Amar says:

    I just checked out the sites abhishek visits regularly, i knew two of them.

    I have bookmarked the rest.

    Hope they help me in future
