Dear Pune property buyers, thanks and best wishes!

Happy Holi!

First, I wish you all very colorful Holi. I am sure, this Holi will add few colors to our black and white life.

Today, in a festive mood, i checked Google Analytics to find out how this blog, Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog is doing.

Recently, my friends and well wishers had started worrying about the readership of my blog. There concern was: how many will read my blog if there are no property buyers in Pune real estate market!

Mainstream Media:

In last couple of months, we have seen that real estate supplements of leading newspapers in Pune, Sakal and Times of India, had almost vanished. Real estate advertising, main source of revenue of print media, is shrinking very fast. Most popular "Out Of Home" (outdoor) media of Pune real estate advertising, hoardings, including at prime locations, going "empty", blank without any colorful digital prints. Same with FM radio, now we can listen only songs, Ghantasinh and traffic updates, except Sucasa at Wakad and Mont Vert's Rent Today Own Tomorrow offer.

Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog:

Though, i was not worried, when i visited my Google Analytics account, i was not expecting any good news. Like, yesterday, Tuesday, 10th March 2009, Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog blog received highest number of readers, in the last 30 days. You read more than 1000 pages in a day, highest number so far. Thanks! now, target of 5,000 by year end has started looking possible! Here are most read posts in the last 30 days:

Who's blog is it anyway?

Is this my blog? No. I give information, start the conversation. If you see the number of comments, you will realize that it's Pune property buyers' blog.

True, few angry property buyers, when don't exactly like the information i give, say that this blog is for promoting builders' interest. But they don't really mean it. They know that this is their blog where they can express themselves. Freely but without being abusive, without using foul language.

Don't you think what you write is as much important as i write? Some times, even more important than what i write! Don't you think you read this blog for my main post as well as for the comments? Don't you think posts along with the comments make this blog complete and useful? Don't you think it's Pune property buyers' blog? Please, share your views in the comments. (Comments Policy),
