      I was doing some online research yesterday and happened to go through your site http://www.niharsworld.com/ as well. I was really amazed by the rich and informative contents that your site provides.

      I am a professional content writer for some of the best internet technology and broadband companies. So I was wondering if I can do something beneficial for you which can make your site much more interesting. It would be great if I can write an article for your site on a topic related to internet technology.

      The article will be 100% original and will always be published in your site. It would be great if you can add a small BIO of mine at the end of the article with my related site’s links.

      Waiting for your positive response.
