Hi, I’m Sandip Agrawal. I am so happy to have finally got my own domain. A special thanks for fellow Sandip Agrawal, who owned this domain before and decided for whatever reason it was not worth it. Thanks, mate!
Top 3 reasons for starting this blog (in no particular order):
Improve my writing
Let’s make it clear. I am a horrible writer. English, not being my first language might have something to do with it. But I am committed to improve. I hope this blog is a step in the right direction. Why is writing important? Paul Graham puts it in Writing, Briefly:
Writing doesn’t just communicate ideas; it generates them. If you’re bad at writing and don’t like to do it, you’ll miss out on most of the ideas writing would have generated.
Have an online presence
Through this blog, I aim to create and maintain an internet presence. Instead of me having to give my twitter, facebook, linkedin or [insert your favorite social networking site] info, I can just point people to my blog.
Share my views
Just like everyone, I have my opinion about things that surround us. Here, I will post my views on things that I care about, stuffs I have a love/hate relationship with. And of course, there will be updates on what’s happening in my life. So, stay on board!
Of course, I can’t improve without you. Yes, YOU! Please drop a line if at any point you have any comment or suggestions for me. It could be a note on my poor writing, your likes/dislikes on any topic or even if to just say Hi!
