My Story – How did it all start?

From an early age, I was always fascinated with PC Games. I bought my first graphics card, an Nvidia MX 400, when I was 17, in 2001, more than 20 years back. I had a Celeron processor and an Asus motherboard, but adding the GPU made the gaming experience magical. That is when I fell in love with PC gaming and PC hardware.

Gaming back then was nothing we see today. Games like IGI and Max Payne, Need for Speed 4 & 5 were enjoyable on my old CRT monitor. Before that, I played games like Prince, and Pacman on the old Pentium 386 and 486 PCs.

In subsequent years, I learned more about graphics cards, processors, overclocking, benchmarks, hardware testing, Android custom ROMs, App/Web development, SEO, Photoshop, and Video editing.

I am a big fan of Anand Tech, Tom’s Hardware, and The Verge.

The journey continued, and in 2014, I got inspired to create Candytech to help readers look for trustworthy information.

I also like programming, C & C++, PHP, and Linux, specializing in analytics like SPSS & SAS and Google Analytics.

Being a blogger teaches many things; writing and sharing content is just a small part. I learned WordPress, how to make a website, SEO, Digital marketing, coding, Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro & Final Cut Pro X, Photography and Video Editing, etc.

Blogging is Awesome !!!

One small piece of advice for fellow bloggers and content creators – don’t worry about short-term wins or losses, keep doing your work daily with persistence, and eventually, you will succeed.

About ME: Kanuj Sharma (Editor and Founder)

On the academic front, I did Engineering from Kurukshetra University, followed by an MBA from FORE School of management. The love for gadgets and technology remained.

I ran Candytech along with my Job initially for 2.5 years. It was really hard to manage both. Finally, In 2017, I decided to give up my high-paying job in the telecom sector (@ Vodafone Idea) as an AGM to work full-time on Candytech.

Besides, I have 10 years of enriching experience in the Telecom sector, mostly in consumer insights, analytics, and marketing.

My Gadgets: I personally now use a Oneplus 8T, a PC with overclocked Core i7 6700K with GTX 1060, and a MacBook Air M1.

I have also started a new blog profoundblogger.com where I write on Digital marketing.
