I never meant to compete with someone who inspired me to take up blogging. Never!
Thanks for participating Thilak. The voting session is just for the fun, it is not really a competition :).
Nice “battle”. It’s a great way of getting in the essence.
My vote’s on Thilak:D
and two of my favorite bloggers!
Thanks for the nice words. Actually I think I could have asked how much they are earning, both of them make some serious money from their blogs.
Dan and Jennfer
Great mash-up, both excellent sites that we follow regularly.
Yeah, I was looking for those hard and fast earnings numbers from both these successful bloggers!
@ Thilak – it’s all just in good fun my friend. 🙂
Congratulations to both.
Have an awesome day!
I think their answers were very similar which is interesting in itself! In the end, I voted for Thilak. 🙂
Both of them are my inspirations in blogging. Don’t know for whom I should cast my vote. 😉
This is bad, you confused me :confused: . I love QOT and TechBuzz both, I never miss read both blog. But still, I’ll vote for QOT, sorry Thilak 🙁 .
QOT rocks because of its usability and rocking articles. Even John CHow love QOT 😛 !
And so Daniel, when is Amit Agarwal from labnol.blogspot.com coming in here at face-off?
I remember once Thilak send a message to me when my comments where not working. Not many takes the time for such!
That’s why he said relationship matters 🙂
My vote goes to Thilak
Thanks for voting everyone. Maybe, I should step up the posting frequency to please Rishi 😀
My personal vote goes to PChere!!
Rishi: In my opinion: PChere should have been pitched against Amit Agarwal. Now that he is pitched against me, I can’t see anybody who can been pitched against Amit (ji)
Thilak, there is JohnTP also!
i always love young achievers and so take my vote for you.. Thilak. Congratulations….
