Best ideas are born when chatting with friends.
Friend: A friend is planning on starting a website that is similar to smashing magazine... but for movies and music... you interested?:P
Me: I don’t have time to read or write now a days. Haven’t even opened Google Reader in a long time :-(
Friend: I have had 1000+ in my reader for a couple of months now..
Me: Yeah me too
Friend: been sleeping at 4am, 5am...
Me: Once I argued with some one who said blogging was a fad. Now I think its coming true.
Friend: lol... According to some, blogging is dead... it's become a commercial enterprise now... and blogging as you used to know it, no longer exists.
Me: Amateur blogging has come down like anything
Friend: Yeah... over 100 million abandoned blogs… according to Technorati
Me: It’s more like online magazines now. Blogs are a boon for sure. You search for any shit you get it on someone’s blog
Friend: According to some, micro blogging is the new blogging…
Me: Micro blogging is keeping me updated now a days
Friend: Now how to make money off it is the next phase
Me: hmm may be they will have sponsors
Me: Sponsors based on the number of followers. Sponsors need not work based on page views. They just need to be heard.
Friend: yeah, so that's authority and popularity... you need to be popular...
Me: So if you sponsor me, I will talk good things about you
Friend: Is that an offer?
Me: hehe may be I will do a matrimonial Twitter channel and…
Friend: huh? Why?
Me: …only girls are allowed to follow me. I broadcast trustworthy info about prospective boys
Me: The boys sponsor me.
Friend: Then I’ll definitely sponsor you...
Friend: hey, if they're sponsoring you, how can they be trustworthy?
Me: They need not be trustworthy. I'm trustworthy. Like say Techcrunch
Friend: How so?
Me: They ask me to review them by paying me. (I don’t know if Techcrunch takes money to review btw)
Friend: Oy, I'm not stripping, ok...
Friend: How will you review me?
Me: Like you pay for my friendship
Me: I become your paid friend. I study you for a week or so and then I write about you. Millions of girls who follow me will read it and would want to meet you
Friend: You've got to get into action on that... but micro blogging is not enough to write about me... you need a large book.
Me: Well even Alukkas jewellery and Kalyan sarees can pay me coz of the target audience. So that I talk good about them too.
Friend: Hmm... Are you gonna act on that?
Me: How’s my idea?
Friend: I think its good... needs marketing... solid marketing...
Me: First I need to be a ladies man, make a solid girl friends circle and then make them fall for ahem sorry follow me… and then let the boys know that the girls listen to me... lot of work
Friend: You need to have a very sound reputation both on the net and off...
Friend: and you have hang out with the girls study them too
Me: Well that will be a free service. I will do special recommendation of those girls who allow me to hang out with them
Friend: I think you will need a team for that...
Me: No No its like Splitsvilla. Everyone makes me happy
Friend: what the heck is that...
Me: Oh that’s another reality show on MTV
Me: Girls make the King happy and boys make the Queen happy
Friend: What the heck?
Me: In the end the king and queen pick their partners to win the show
Friend: This is some porn reality show?
Me: Hehe not porn but of course little more than Indian sensibilities. However I hope the girls’ parents have sold their TV before the season started.
