Thanks for the good wishes. This post is about a year old. Now we have over 2000 members from all over the world :)
This website was primarily started as a resource center for human resource professionals. A place where everyone could meet and share their thoughts and help out each other. Through the year we have seen this happening and our community is growing stronger and better every month with loads of information available at your fingertips.
Hoping this will continue and we'll have many more members coming in with their thoughts and posts.

Thanks for the compliment and yes you are right a very large part of the credit goes to the very knowledgeable contributors on the site.
This is mainly done through a few marketing campaigns now. Initially I made some members join by posting on yahoo groups and the like [I found them inconvenient with all the s p a m emails]
:icon1: Glad to know that. Though its not an official announcement but I am trying to figure out a way to provide email accounts from the website. Though we need thousands of more members to be able to afford such development.
As you know I have *not* studied human resource but I am rather gifted with research assignments and web development. I work for a software design firm and handle the HR issues [also] in our small company. CiteHR started when I was given a research assignment to find alternatives to balanced scorecard and a parallel research on some human resource software. I was interested and started this website as a place where I could learn human resource [couldn't afford to go for an mba... not because of money but just a general fear of educational institutes :icon2:] soon I realized that there was no way people are going to join and help out some of the new members [as often I was incapable or did not have the time to do the research and post answers to queries] unless I give them something in return. So I decided to let them promote their consultancy services in return of their contribution in helping other members. One thing led to another and I ended up spending a lot of time on the development of CiteHR, search engine optimization and the marketing of the website.
Well, these days I don't get the time to post answers to queries. Most of the time devoted to CiteHR goes into general moderation / administration of the website / checking marketing campaigns / answering emails from members who have problems. Most of the answering is done by some of the elite members on the board [as you may have noticed], who are much more capable of helping people out with human resource matters as they have first hand experience.
Yes, I do sleep at night, I'm usually in bed by twelve or my girl friend would kill me over the phone. But I have spent quite a few sleepless nights working on the website [as I have a day job]
Hope I've answered all the questions :icon1:

everyone has done all their wish and have said the good think about cite hr. so i thinking what to say more in this. but really a good forum for the professionals, students and researchers to known manything and to answer others also... may be more than going for giving mail id. why cannot a newletter can be preared and circulated. which can give latest information and more variety of articles.... many societies are trying to do that. so even it can be made more KM sharing portal naa
ok see u

Yes, I am not completely uneducated :icon4: I have a degree in computer applications and a diploma in design and have extensively studied advertising [wanted to be in advertising some time back].
And no, I didn't think HR was tough... extensive... yes... but not tough. Just haven't found the time to plan higher studies. But I am interested in psychology and may start studying that [Not sure though.. I am unbelievably fickle when it comes to choosing but usually work hard to get it done once I've decided].
Yeah! shocking isn't it! :icon5: :icon1:
Thanks once again.:icon1:

So to answer your question I'll use what most MBA's do... give you points.
1) I don't like crowds. I am a very private person and do not enjoy mingling in crowds of people. This was also the reason why had very low attendance during my senior years in school.
2) Educational institutes don't always need to be a college or an institute building. You can learn anywhere and from anyone. I prefer studying by myself and do not enjoy studying under guidance. I know itís a weakness but I am open to online studying or correspondence courses.
3) I have never come across someone who had the will/capacity to be my mentor. I know its unfortunate but everyone is not destined to have a master. Many a times I have exceeded my professors and have walked out of classes after strong confrontations with them [not boasting.. actually I am ashamed I did that] but that's how it happened to me. Its been 24 years but hopefuly sometime ahead in my life I will come across someone who will be a guide in my life.
4) I am often lazy and like to do my work at my own pace and its often very difficult to make me budge from this habit. This primarily [I think] is because of the environment I have grown up in. I come from a zamindar family and I think I have inherited some of that arrogance and stubbornness from that bloodline.
All these factors combined keep me away from educational institutes but not from education itself.
I hope I have answered your question. :icon1:

This is what I have told her a few times:
We must follow etiquette... ask if you can ask a question before you ask something... like the flow of conversation should be:
Her: Can I ask you a question?
Her: Okay [usually means you'll pay for this later]
But it never works. :no:
Anyways, Lets leave it at this now . Thanks for your comments. :icon1:
