This blog has always been a low traffic one. There have been surges in traffic now and then but for the longest time I didn't have a feed and had only a handful of regular readers. I keep writing because I love to write and because writing makes me think better (though must admit that most of the times the ideas just remain in my head). Another thing that has kept me going is the praise I've received from a few readers.

The best comment I've ever got came from Phil Hood, formerly CEO of a think tank/research firm and author of 2x2 matrix: "I'd like to offer criticism but honestly, this is one of the best postings I've ever found in any blog, so I'm going to have to read your archives." Paul was referring to this post, my most visited one so far.

Now for the past few days I've been getting unprecedented traffic (for this blog) to my Skype posts, most recently from Om Malik's blog. My feed subscription has gone up, just discovered that an FT.com article linked to my Ebay-Skype post and today a mainstream journalist wrote in to ask my opinion regarding the future of VoIP: "I understand that it is not your specialization as a professional and that it is just your hobby but [...] everything you write here is much more interesting than what ft.com or nytimes.com write...". Recently, someone asked me if I'm an IIM alumni! (IIM is India's premier management institution)

Nothing much to celebrate about...but not bad for a user experience designer. Thank you, dear readers.
