Ah. My h-index is now 1

saad bhamla google scholar h index 1

So, I just realized that the only publication I have, now has a citation. Which means that my h-index is now 1. Hardly a big deal, but hey, something is better than nothing. One day, I’ll look back at this day and say, ha, that’s where I started from – rock bottom.

I’m posting this for another reason too.

Every once in a while, when I’m talking to someone and the topic of running comes up, and I’ll ask them if they run, and they’ll be like.. “yeah, but only for like a mile or ten minutes. Not half-marathons like you..”

Err, I started there too, you know.

 This is what I posted way back in 2009. One of my first couple of posts on running. See? 2.29 miles. No text. Just a map. What a noob. I could barely write or run. I remember it would take me 30 mins to do that much with breaks in between. And I would think that was the biggest achievement of my life at that time. Sigh.

I was terrible at writing. I started from this. Wtf is that? I don’t even know what I was thinking when I posted that.

But that’s ok. The important thing for me is to move on and grow and improve.

I had to start somewhere, and water bottle blings seemed like a good topic to start with.

And 2009 seemed like a good year to start.

The  way I see it, I won’t care what I wrote about, in a month from now.

So, why wait?


P.S. : h-index in short means that anyone with an index of h has published h papers each of which has been cited in other papers at least h times.

P.S. : Oh god, I have such a loooong way to go. Here are the h-index’s of my role models.

GGF –  28
AKL –  16
Pee   –  11
AJM – 9
PBSK – 8
Basa   – 6
MB      – 2
TWW – 1

    “… I started there too…”
    I like that. Although an obvious fact, yet pretty motivating 🙂
