  i dropped gregkh from this response as i don't think he's interested
in any followup, so here's my thoughts.

  i checked out a couple articles at your blog and i'm not trying to
be harsh, but there's very little useful content there. aside from the
numerous spelling mistakes, the articles are extremely superficial
and, in many cases, are imprecise to the point where it's not clear
what you're even trying to say.

  here's an example:

"Kernel is like the kernel of a nut. It is a bit difficult for an
application program to interact with the kernel directly i.e. it will
be a time consuming task to write an application program with the help
of the kernel only."

  i have no idea what that means, or what point you're trying to get
across, and most of the articles there are like that. if you want to
keep writing, that's great, do whatever you enjoy, but you're being
wildly optimistic if you want to describe your blog as a "gateway to
linux kernel development."

  if i were you, i would do less writing, and way more reading. again,
i'm not trying to discourage you, but you really need to set your
expectations appropriately.
