Amit Agarwal is India’s first professional tech blogger who is my inspiration in blogging. In 2012 when I was in Bangalore I read an article on Amit Agarwal and how he is making money through his blog. Then I started a technology blog and this time I’m regularly posting. As a tech blogger I would like to ask Amit about topic selection and how to create clean video tutorial.
