  2. Thanks for your comment Charan. Yes, everyone has been telling us its an awesome domain. Isn't it?

    We had acquired the domain some time back for an undisclosed amount. Then the founder of blogging.co.in – Mr. Kartik sat on it for a while and kept thinking what to build on it. Eventually he set his Personal Goal to create 10,000 bloggers and coach them so that they earn $ 100 per day in the next 5 years.

    I was working with him, and came on board immediately. We're still building the team and are looking out for passionate people to achieve this goal.
