iDubba recommends what to watch this week on TV through Personalized Weekly ‘Show Dubba’?

Sorry, for not posting here on iDubba’s blog for quite sometime. In fact I became more active over trak.in and writing guest blogs instead of writing at my home ground. No. My intention was not to run away from Blogging on my own site, but the main issue was- I needed to find a concrete reason for visitors to come over here and get some real useful information. Something which can be easily associated with what we are doing at iDubba.

I thought that I needed to take a step back, re-think what I was doing and then decide what should be done. I thought that- I should write something which will be associated with what we do at idubba i.e. TV show and Movie suggestion and alerts. But how can I differentiate between what my website provides and what I’ll post here? This question needed to be answered and I finally came up with this idea-

We will give you some Dubba’s of various shows and Movies every week here, targeting specific genres and demographics, specially hand picked and packed with iDubba’s personalization algorithm!

Yea that’s the IDEA! Loved that :)? It may look very attractive but its challenging to achieve what we aspire to do here. We need your support, and looking forward to your feedback.
