Me, My readers and A run around the Sun …..
“The better a man is, the more mistakes he will make, for the more new things he will try. I would never promote to a top-level job a man who was not making mistakes…otherwise he is sure to be mediocre.”
–Peter F Druker,
Management Guru & Philosopher
” Give a lecture to a thousand people.One walks out and says,I’m going to change my life.” Another one walks out with a yawn and says,”I’ve heard all this before.”Why is that? Why wouldn’t both be affected the same way?Another mystery.
Failure can be motivating. But for the author of this blog , his own failure could never motivate him to start this venture. In my message I have accepted that I am not a successful person. I am one among millions of those people who could not succeed in what they ever wished to succeed. However for me, success came in another form. It was in the shape of selection of my first student and my younger brother in the Rajasthan Judicial Services. This success motivated me to work for thousands of people and contribute my part to bring success in many lives.

Source of Inspiration : My Readers
I have been using Google Analytics to analyze the traffic coming to my site. Do you know that 70% of the visitors come to this site searching for these 4 keywords: gktoday, gktoday.in , www.gktoday.in & general knowledge today. Just Check this snippet by clicking on it …..
This proves that they searched on Google or other search engines after they were referred by their friends about this blog. This has been the biggest source of inspiration for me. My website has been visited by 10 lakh unique visitors in this year. Word of mouth is still the best marketing and my readers have done it for me. My readers have taken the job of promoting this site and have worked hard for me day and night without any return.
I call Google my godfather. The wonderful Blogger platform of Google Inc. could provide me an opportunity to share my knowledge with younger generation of my country.
I feel that Wikipedia is the best gift of humankind to humankind. Millions of decisions are made everyday on the basis of this great platform. I spent almost half of my time on wikipedia and I suggest all the young people to explore this excellent source of info every day…
The strength of this blog has been reliability. I have tried honestly to provide the most reliable information to my readers. Being a human of course, I do commit mistakes, but accepting the mistakes and eliminating the errors has been the top priority.
The biggest weakness of this blog has been of not being able to provide the regular updates. Since the idea conceived in the beginning was to provide daily updates along with a daily quiz and make it a complete source of info, yet perhaps we lacked in that.. However in the new year, I have plans to make it more strong by providing daily updates and 3-4 current articles every week. Sports section was not covered. There is not enough number of quizzes on vocabulary practice. There is no grammar. There are no quantitative aptitude content and no metal ability. Current articles are not updated frequently. These are some of the weak areas , which I have in mind and will try to eliminate in the new year.
Millions of people search everyday for reliable source of information which consumes their lesser time and provides more info. The ever increasing number of Internet users in our country motivates the author to now make a team and move forward with more confidence.
The biggest threat has been plagiarism and my fellow bloggers & webmasters agree with it. It hinders and demotivates the person who uses all his resources to create nice content. Plagiarism must be taken seriously.
Future Plans & Vision :
GkToday is here to stay….We wish to create a team and work hard and make it a good source of reference. We need our readers active participation in advising us on how to improve. There should be a daily quiz for advance learners and another quiz for new learners. Apart from this, there is a strong need to start updates on Sports, more quizzes on Vocabulary Practice, English Grammar, QT and Mental ability. The updates need to be provided daily….
Lot of work has to be done ……
Thank You my Readers You have given a new life to the author of this blog and now I have decided to work for you only for rest of my life……………..
