” I haven’t been to everywhere. I didn’t do everything. But it’s on my list. “
I’ve formatted this about section in Q & A format for easy navigation and readability.
Who are you? and What do you do?
I’m a Software Engineer. At 25 yrs now, too old to be called teen and too young to be called an uncle. 😃
I did my Bachelors in Computer Science from a state university in Gujarat, India. Right after my graduation in 2016, I joined a startup in Hyderabad, India.
In mid of 2018, I moved to Raleigh, USA to pursue Master’s degree and to explore new places, people and opportunities. I graduated from NC State University with MS in Computer Science.
After Master’s, I joined Oracle Cloud Infrastructure [OCI] as Software Engineer 2. I work on backend services and infrastructure that powers worldwide Console of OCI.
Cool! What else do you do?
As much as I love computers, I love travelling 5x more. I prefer travelling to relatively unknown places and write about them here on this site. Primary list of my interests include,
- Photography/film making
- Financial markets
- Computers, programming and technology
What about this website?
When I was pursuing my Bachelor’s, I had plenty of free time and a flock of ideas that I wanted to share.
On one afternoon of August 2014, I published my first post.
Eventually as I continued writing, website turned into a hub to share travel experiences, cool projects I work on, photography showcase and what not!
Any stats of website?
I never expected that so many people would read my posts. After a month of my first blog post, Google started ranking my website for various keywords. As I kept writing original travel stories, the ranking kept improving. At one of the peak times, the website had over 200,000 pageviews/month.
At the time of this update (March 2019), I am not as active as earlier years due to other responsibilities. On an average, I get over 100,000 pageviews/month.
The travel category accounts for more than 90% of the traffic.
How to contact you?
Do you make money from this website?
I used to. I made several hundred $ every year from Google Ads.
After I started my full-time job, I removed all ads.
