Welcome Mumbai Mirror Readers

By Daniel Scocco

Yesterday one of our Indian readers emailed me to let me know that Daily Blog Tips had appeared on Tuesday’s edition of the Mumbai Mirror. I was quite surprised, as this is probably the biggest mainstream coverage I have had. The blog had been mentioned on some small newspapers and magazines, but the Mumbai Mirror has a circulation of around 1.5 million people according to Wikipedia.

Here is a screenshot of the digital version:


If you are visiting this blog for the first time after seeing it on the newspaper, welcome! The “Categories” on the left sidebar should give you a good idea of the topics I cover, and if you want to get a quick glimpse of all the stuff already published on the blog check the Archives.

Last time I checked India represented almost 4% of my traffic. I find it flattering, given that Indians are among the most tech-savvy people in the world.

    Hmm…. I did not see DBT in the paper! But then, the paper does not circulate here(exactly 1414.44 km away from Mumbai! 😉 )

    Congrats on appearing in such a big publication.

    I am also an Indian and a regular reader of DBT for more than 1 year.

    Indians are among the most tech-savvy people in the world.

    Indeed! 😀

    Congratulations. Did you notice a spike in traffic because of this?

    Me for one, didn’t notice any such thing when I had one article featured, of course it wasn’t so mainstream. It was a movie review

    Congrats Daniel!

    One thing I would say is that “old media” is still a powerful source of publicity. I think we tend to forget that from time to time. It is especially useful for writers of non-tip based blogging.

  • Vishal Sanjay

    Well i guess 4% of your traffic comes from india not due to its tech savvy people, but due to its high population. Most indians have no idea that they can make money online. Well yes india is getting a bit tech savvy but not a lot.

    Mumbai Mirror – 19 May 2010 Front Page – Cop creates panic in his own Thana –

    Says the cop committed a blunder by putting a confidential information on notice board of the police station!!!

    What we should term for putting the detailed information including the confidential one in first page of the news paper?
    Media dont have the responsibility for the safety of the country??

    The terrorists would not have got the tip from a police station’s notice board.. Now??
