Hi,

My name’s Mani Karthik and I’m a blogger. I’ve been one since 2005, and on this blog, I share everything that I learn in life – from tech to food, spirituality to health and finance to random thoughts. When I started in 2005, this was a humble blog. But today, about 100,000 people visit it every month. Many of them have become my friends today. Blogging is an amazing platform to share knowledge and I’m glad to have helped many people by sharing what I know. If you liked what you read here today, please let me know on Facebook. I’m originally from India but live in Los Angeles currently and visit India occasionally. If you want to say hi, do send me an email at [email protected] or follow me on Twitter (@manikarthik).

Thanks for dropping by.

 

Got something to tell me?

Why?

Marketing is fun. Sometimes, not so much. But mostly, fun. Pick three of your friends. Any three. They must've bought something today. Coffee, something online, a software subscription perhaps? Ask them this. Why did you choose not to buy from the other brand? Yes,...
