Welcome to the Skeptic Geek!

this is the new home for An unqui­et mind.

I have tak­en the plunge and decid­ed to host my own blogs. My web pres­ence will hence­forth be at this new domain, where I am plan­ning to main­tain two sep­a­rate blogs.

I was look­ing to con­sol­i­date my geek blog with my per­son­al blog. I spent a lot of time think­ing about and search­ing for a new domain name that would:

  • Reflect my per­son­al­i­ty
  • Be appro­pri­ate for both An Unqui­et Mind’s char­ac­ter as well as a tech blog
  • Be avail­able as a .com domain. This was the hard­est part.

So final­ly, I am the proud new own­er of www.skepticgeek.com.

The home­page is not yet host­ed, since I am still fig­ur­ing out how to opti­mal­ly man­age two blogs with Word­Press. The cur­rent plan is:

  1. http://skeptic.skepticgeek.com will be An Unqui­et Mind
  2. http://geek.skepticgeek.com will be my geek blog
  3. www.skepticgeek.com may be either a sta­t­ic page or the home page of my geek blog.

I want­ed to enable read­ers of both types to fol­low both blogs inde­pen­dent­ly, includ­ing sub­scrib­ing to a sep­a­rate, spe­cif­ic RSS feed.

The URL redi­rec­tion from WordPress.com will be active for 1 year from today, after which I may dis­con­tin­ue it.

I request those of you who have me on their blogroll to update your links to point to http://skeptic.skepticgeek.com instead of http://mahendrap.wordpress.com.

Do let me know if you find any prob­lems what­so­ev­er with com­ment­ing, link­ing, nav­i­gat­ing, etc.

How do you like my new domain name? All feed­back and sug­ges­tions are most wel­come, as always!

  • wel­come to your new home. is there going to be an online blog warm­ing par­ty ? 🙂
    love the tem­plate.

    • I wish there was a way to have a warm­ing par­ty! 🙂

      Thanks, Hari­ni. Wel­come and hope you feel at home here.

  • SS

    Con­grat­u­la­tions and good luck! RSS feed changed accord­ing­ly…
    Hope you con­tin­ue writ­ing about social issues

    • Snigdha,

      Thank you very much. I just have one request — can you resub­scribe to the RSS feed? I think you have sub­scribed to the raw blog feed and I updat­ed it to the pol­ished Feed­burn­er feed after you sub­scribed. Sor­ry for the incon­ve­nience.

      As you can see, my can­vas is very broad. I will def­i­nite­ly con­tin­ue to write about impor­tant issues as far as I can man­age. Your sup­port and encour­age­ment means a lot, and I am grate­ful.

  • Con­grats Mahen­dra! Every­thing looks very good. I will remem­ber to update my blogroll. 🙂

    • Priyank,

      Thank you and I am very grate­ful for your assis­tance in set­ting up Word­Press to run my two blogs.

  • Hi! First time I am com­ment­ing on your blog- I read some of your ear­li­er posts and enjoyed them.

    The look of this new blog is great!

    • Man­ju,

      Wel­come and feel free to com­ment — that’s what this blog is all about.


  • Whatay coin­ci­dence. This is not the first time we’ve done some­thing sim­i­lar at the same time. I’ve cre­at­ed krishashok.com/blog to aggre­gate all the writ­ing I do out­side of Jal­sa-Jil­pa

    • Hmm…brothers again, eh? 🙂

      Con­grat­u­la­tions! I have been so busy set­ting this up that I have so far resist­ed check­ing out your site — some­thing I will cor­rect imme­di­ate­ly!

  • Hey this looks great. I have already updat­ed the link in my blogroll.
    Con­grat­u­la­tions Mahen­dra.

    • Thanks, Nita! Con­tin­ued sup­port from old-timers like you is what makes it all pos­si­ble and worth­while…

  • 🙂 Nice going … Loved the look and feel

    • Thanks, Prax!

      Same thing as I’ve said in my com­ments above — loy­al read­ers like you who engage in con­ver­sa­tion here make it a spe­cial expe­ri­ence.

  • Dev

    Oh, I was miss­ing this. Some­how my blog surfer still shows that last post from your ear­li­er blog.
    This one looks good..btw won­der­ing abt your domain name skep­ticgeek? I mean arents skep­tics and geeks the same peo­ple? 😉

    Your blog change also reminds me that I have to do some changes on my blog too, some­thing which I have been post­pon­ing to do since a month now..perhaps ear­ly next week I will do so. Any­ways, good luck with your new blog site.

    • Hi Dev,

      The ‘blog surfer’ will show blogs only from WordPress.com. So I will no longer fig­ure there!

      Geeks are usu­al­ly skep­tics about every­thing else except tech­nol­o­gy. That’s where fan­boys and evan­ge­lists over­shad­ow sci­en­tif­ic skep­ti­cism. That’s why SkepticGeek.com 😉

      Thanks Dev. I have been tied up with a lot of things late­ly, so I have to catch up with all your blogs!

  • Con­grats Mahen­dra! I like the look of this site…smart and crisp.

  • A very pro­fes­sion­al make-over! 🙂 All the best!
