2008 has been a pretty good year. I have learnt a lot of new things through my experiments which is in sync with the subtitle of my blog. This year I have been posting on an average of 12-14 posts a month. In the early months of 2008, readers appreciated my work on posting the lyrics for some of the regional movie songs. As always, I don’t blog on a particular theme. That led to articles on wide variety of topics covering MLM schemes, movie reviews, travel, lyrics, DTH services, Investment, restaurants and Car reviews.
These are the top 7 most viewed/commented articles for 2008
* Tata Indica Vista Review
* Maruti A Star :: Specifications, Details
* Gaalipata & Vaana movie lyrics
* Review of LIC’s Jeevan Aastha
* BITS pilani : Pursuing higher studies
* Flickr with WordPress iNove theme and
* GoldQuest : QuestNet gold scheme review
There are a number of learnings that I take forward from this year. The kind of response I received for GoldQuest/QuestNet was amazing. Though I was forced to a legal battle with that company, I managed to stay away from it by removing all posts related that company. More details on that whole episode will be coming up soon. Even then, I am sure it enlightened a number of people. Keeping that aside, 2008 has been a great year as I got to revive my dream of continuing my masters studies with premier institute like BITS Pilani. Also, got into the advent of changing my domain from mohanbn.com to codecritic.in. That caused a bit of confusion for many of the readers. I had to compromise on certain technical issues and hence reverted back to mohanbn.com. Good news is that, I wouldn’t be switching any more.

Once again thank u for ur reply
Thanks for your wishes and support during the past year. Well, that thread became so popular, there were too many people posting repeated comments/questions. I was able to moderate that to some extent, but it was highly time consuming. At the same time there were few readers who posted wrong information that led to unwarranted consequences and hence I had to remove that thread completely.
Wish u a good year ahead.Then i thought why u removed the topic about gold quest. Because you fighted well. but suddenly u removed the topic. So can u tell us why it happened?
Thats great! makes me happy that more people getting inspired by me!
Thanks for your wishes.
Thanks Shrinidhi. Yes, i will soon write about that with all updates.
