When it comes to blogs related to Technology, there are a handful which I follow like [email protected] , [email protected] and a few others. It is not that there is no one else worth following, but too many ideas about a single concept or gadget will end me up more confused than before reading the article.
Atish Ranjan has also made several appearances on my blog like on my first Top 10 Blog Posts Roundup & DMC’s first GiveAway. I have been following Atish from the day I started to blog and have been a fan of his writing about the latest in the tech world. He is very well informed and gives out reviews and advice about WordPress, Plugins, SEO, Social Networking, Third Party Software Tools and many more.
He was also kind enough to accept a guest post of mine which got published here – How I made a cool $400 in a few months of blogging and My First E-Book. In my recent Sunshine Award post, I nominated him to be one of my best bloggers to receive this honorary award and I am sure he is very deserving of this as well.

what is Naked Truth i did not get..?
Vaibhav – Welcome to my blog and glad you asked.
The purpose of this series is to bring out some hard facts about bloggers who have made some ground and getting to know them better via these simple questionnaire formats.
Why i chose to name it “Naked Truth” beats me, it is just a common phrase or term which we use to say that it cannot be anything but the truth.
good..BEST OF LUCK
Thanks Nimmi for your wishes.

Good to know a bit more about our dear friend Atish,
But I think you need to update this post, as the date shows 2012 and lot of things happened in between these years, as far as I know Atish there are a lot to more to added to this post. Please update it.
Thanks for sharing
Have a wonderful day.
Good to see you on DMC. Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts.
This post was written in 2012 itself, and I just shared it on FB yesterday. It was not re-written, hence there is no change done.
Of course there are many changes over the years, and maybe I should do another interview with Atish and publish a new one again. Thanks for the thought.
