Gmail Increased It’s Attachment Size – 25 MB

Yesterday I was sending some files to my friends from Gmail and I just missed out the calculation of the attachment size, so I got an error message as shown below. The interesting part in this message which I found was, it said “..exceed the 25MB attachment limit”.


Did Gmail increased its maximum attachment size to 25 MB from 20 MB. To cross check it I went to Gmail Help and found out that its true.

With Gmail, you can send and receive messages up to 25 megabytes (MB) in size.
Please note that you may not be able to send larger attachments to contacts who use other email services with smaller attachment limits. If your attachment bounces, you should invite them to Gmail.

So now you can share some additional files using Gmail and if your mail bounces then its time to invite that person who has a smaller attachment limits from other email services to Gmail. As Gmail is one of the best email services, share your opinion by commenting below.

BlogCampPune-2 Live Update

logomainkrity6Its 10:00 AM sharp and half the room is full with people and still counting in…It looks likes this room will full in no time. Everyone is waiting for the sessions to start I’m one of them too.

I’ll keep you all updated about the most awaited event of this weekend. All ages people are in 15yrs to almost people in 50’s this is a stage where age is has no limit.


It has started guys… Everyone is introducing themselves and about their blogs. This is very interesting to known that their are lot of blogger have more then one blog and people as well who want to start blogging soon after coming to BlogCampPune - 2.


Wow…we have scientist (the guy in the ponytail), students, IT professional, media professionals in the house this is one of a kind BlogCampPune



This was covered by Tarun sharing about why people blog? What people blog about? like writing about their life, writing about blogs, technology etc. The reason behind blogging  like how to make themselves fames, to earn money, making difference etc it was all together an introduction about bloggers.

How to market about your blog? 


This session was taken by Ankesh Kothari. He shared how you can market about your blog. One thing which I agree with him was by writing a great content, making back links at places where lot of people hangout and by getting few free stuffs and selling that stuff at a very low profit and investing that money in advertising for blog and lot more. This session was good because I got  to know how can you invest without paying out of your pocket.

Blogger to Wordpress


Rahul Bansal had taken this session and this was a very interesting topic which was chosen by him, as most of us including me started blogging using www.blogspot.com and think after blogging for 1 to 2 years or more on blogspot then it is not possible to switch over Wordpress. He totally changed that set of mind, he gave a great presentation on how to transfer from blogger to Wordpress without losing your traffic and page ranks. Personally if I’ll plan to shift to Wordpress in future then would diffidently go through the article written by him - Blogger to Wordpress.

After this session I almost lost the track as their was so many session going on, that I was not able to get all the details, however it was a great learning overall and I had a great time. The best thing was that I got to meet lot of other bloggers and interact with them personally rather then sharing comments on each others blog or twitter. 

In our conversation I came to know that BarCamp will be coming soon most probably in next weekend but not sure about it till now. Incase if it gets finalize will post about its detail for sure. For getting new updates and news about it do subscribe to our feed by email subscriber.

Again A New Region For Google Ads In Orkut

If you all remember I wrote a post New Region For Google Ads In Orkut last year. That time Orkut had brought the ads above my communities and below my friends recently when I opened my Orkut account I noticed ads have jumped over my friends and now its above it have a look at below snap-shot.

Pervious Region                         New Region

        Pervious Region                 orkut ads

From beginning my friends was always on top right-hand side and people like me are used to it in that way however I think that Google is trying to get more attention of Orkut users towards these ads and trying to get some more bucks out of Orkut. Let us know what do you think about this new region for ads.

Note: This change in ads region is seen in my account but few of my friends has the same ads region as before.


Orkut Sharing News:

With this post today I completed 100 posts on Orkut Sharing successfully. 

Thanks to all of you for supporting me on this journey.

It feels GREAT !!
