Series of 101 posts with 11 tips

Recently I saw an increasing attraction for lists, so I have decided to cover 101 such lists with 11 tips for topics ranging from finance to technology, from HR to marketing, from SEO, SEM to social networking. I must also include few misc posts under this series.

If you know me then let me know your topic of preference. While considering a topic please check it with my work and interest, else I will have to call guest writers.

If you want to cover a 11 tips topic, please send me a mail at ajiissac(at) and I will publish it under your name (Guest writers).

Some of the topics I am planning to cover under this series are:-

  • 11 lessons for budding entrepreneurs.
  • 11 tips for forum management/community building.
  • 11 tips for successful blogging.
  • 11 great ways of getting links.
  • 11 things to avoid as a leader.
  • 11 forums I visit regularly.
  • 11 blogs that I read regularly.
  • 11 funniest jokes.
  • 11 greatest stories.

The series will continue till we reach the 101th list (want to complete it in next 100 days). As I said you can put your request under this post.

$5,000 for SEM

Marketing Pilgrim has launched a contest to give away a search engine marketing scholarship prize worth more than $5,000. We want to help one lucky winner to either start their career in search engine marketing or improve their existing skills further.

Interested people can take part. I may write about evangelistic marketing. Only catch (if it is),

Your article can be about any topic related to search engine optimization, paid search or social media, but remember the winner will be chosen based upon popularity, so the more original and engaging your article, the more likely you will attract readers and win.

What do they mean by popularity? Is it another SEO competition? or a way to build more links? I see that they have already got many links due to this competition. This is another way of building links. If I get time I might write.

Will you be writing one? What topics are you planning to write?

I am back

I am back in Kolkata after a 3 day off from WWW (web, work, West Bengal). The trip to Bhelai was good, enjoy every moment of it. We reached Durg Railway station at 3:45 am IST Monday morning. I tried to get some sleep but could not manage that day. Monday we had competitions and our church did fairly below expectation. We were not depressed as we wanted some other team to win this time. Second day after when everyone had a sound sleep swept many additional and unexpected points to keep the trophy for 4th consecutive year.

We got 66 points while the host came second with 62 points, the closest competition so far. More than the competition the youths were challenged by the Guest speaker Pastor V.O.Varghese. He certainly talk the walk and that challenges you more than anything.

Now I am back in Kolkata and somehow managed to go through 77 mails. Today was busy with all the pending work and report updation.

I will get back to blogging from tomorrow, I think I should get some sleep now.
