It’s a glorious day for everyone here at TechDeville, we are finally bringing change in our blogosphere in association with HomeShopping. After an entire year of blogging, reviewing, criticizing, and the rest, we have come to a point every new startup wishes to achieve. Seeing how the Pakistani Blogosphere is as narrow as ever, I personally wanted to team up with another big name in our IT Industry and bring change in the way we are perceived and connected with the rest of the world/blogging community. There are just a few hand-picked “bloggers” in Pakistan who conquer the ranks and deny access to anyone else willing to do something better than them or move our industry forward rather than just staying quietly at the same old pace of grabbing gadgets and writing a few words about them.
In my personal quest to do something different, I needed ample supply of products at will. In order to make that happen, TechDeville needed the support of a major vendor or distributor of gadgets and other tech-related items. Since HomeShopping is owned by a guy my age, I thought it would be better to talk to him about it, the rest of the companies are owned by over-aged men who know less about the products they’re selling than the janitors who work at their stores. So I emailed him, Shayaan Tahir, the proposal for teaming up and bringing change to the way our people (Pakistanis) see the IT industry.
A week later, we were sitting in the offices of HomeShopping and being amazed by the infinite supply of awesome opportunities we have in this direction. We are now the official media partners of HomeShopping, first order of business is to shoot the pilot of our web series (still untitled) and see how that goes. I know the importance of text in the world of blogging and I will continue to write normal reviews along with this, but with priority to the web series. Our first episode is to be shot this Saturday and is going to be all about the new XPERIA phones (excited).
We are also going to be taking requests and emails from our visitors, the whole idea behind this new series is to engage the youth with TechDeville. I’ve always wanted my blog to be different from the rest, and doing what everyone else was doing really wasn’t cutting it anymore. Here’s to a better experience and change. Kudos to HomeShopping.
