Hi Manish,

Thank you very very much for providing this useful info till now.
Secondly a heartiest congratulations to you for this blogs and your triumph.
Your articles are always been helpful to understand not only personal finance but also the products specification of it.
I especially appreciate Your reply to each and every comment.
One suggestion from my side is you can bring little colors in this blog which will be more attractable. And also if you can make a different pages for particular products like commodities, MF’s, equities etc. wherein you will have a separate page for your articles and if you have any queries related to particular products like MF,s, Equities you can go and ask the questions. Also this will reduce the searching time for the same articles; you don’t need to tell the readers that you have already published it they can find it on their own.
AND KEEP THE GOOD WORK ON.

Manish,

Hearty congratulations for crossing 1 lac pageviews mark. Honestly, you are doing hard work and you deserve more. I’d be glad to see your blog crossing 1 mn mark in near future.

One point here to consider is that you need to transform this ‘blog’ into a personal finance ‘website’ having multiple things.. like blog articles, subscriptions services, online purchase of your recommended insurance policies, some calculators, a good discussion forum (I know its already there but needs to blend more in site so look like a part of site), personal area for regular users so they can login and create+track their financial plans. I think you are different and now heading towards becoming no. 1 personal finance blog in India but keep in mind.. retaining top position is more difficult than chasing for it.

All the best!

for punch line, here are some suggestion from my side:

“making your investments more intelligent. ”

“awakening common man for financial freedom.”

“because only earning is not enough! ”

Hi Manish,

I agree with the Survey Results
The Blog features should also include the print layout features
which would be features to work / improve

I personally like to print the artcile & read them,
the print format on policy bazar website is really good
while printing it elminates all the Add & prints only the article…
can try to follow the same or better

Regards
Shekhar

Manish,
In Nov/Dec 2009 I was searching for some options to invest in different assets and was searching for a site where I could get some valuable suggestions. I googled and happened to visit your blog. I must say, since then I really wait for your posts. I and my wife read-out your articles at home and really find them worth discussion. E.g Your article on how women should also think about investing is literally discussed everyday πŸ˜‰
Frankly, I had only invested in fixed assets before and wanted to check on investing in equity/debt instruments to diversify my poftfolio. I have inverted in couple of MFs and will continue to invest regularly … I would like to congratulate you for all the work you do for us. Your blog is great and would like you to cover some fixed return assets too (Post office schemes/Kisan Vikas Patra etc..). I know you have covered PPF. thanks

The results are fine for your blog and one thing I want to add is I find your blog looks typical DIY looks, do try to change it as this itself has many options to change.
