Blog It Forward – Karthik Swaminathan

Are the one who clicks backward arrow whenever you see “Blog it Forward” blogs in SCN ? 😆

Do you wish to know when was all this started and who is responsible for all this blogs in About SCN space?

It was a great idea to increase people interaction in SCN by xMoshe Naveh (Old Acct) inspired from the movie Pay it Forward and it all started in 2012 with this Blog It Forward Community Challenge as a result of this chain reaction there are huge number of blogs written in this space due to which SCN should have spent some penny more storing all this archival Data on their cloud 😛

If you are still puzzled with this chain “Blog it Forward (BIF)” the only way to get rid of this is-  write one! 😉

Two things before I Start

Why should I blog it forward?

Because I don’t have a choice 😛   I have been nominated by Nithya (aka) guruji (aka) Nithyanandam Venu

Why should you read it?

Think about it before scrolling down 😏 , you still have a choice! 😉

{{About me}}

{{Where I live}}

I live in a country called INDIA where happiness, love, freedom, culture, respect and devotion comes hand in hand—a paradox; a place of morals in a time of Westernization. The oldest civilization that carries its pride every day for giving wonderful people starting from great scientists like APJ Abdul Kalam to best batsman Sachin Tendulkar.
