After 284 posts, I thought it was time to run a critical eye over my blog and scan the contents.
The gimmicks, I try to get page hits is unimaginable. If it's naive to believe that adding popular/trendy/happening event while naming a blog post, fetch visitors, then I am naive. Don't be surprised if you find one huge sentence as a title for a post. I keep lending out links to my own blog, that way to make them stay in my blog for more than a minute. In my experience, readers are smart, when they see a hyperlink, the eye it as virus and that's the end of my blog promotion.
I started this post couple of weeks back and it was lying as a draft. I am resuming it today, the 19th June 2012, Tuesday.
So, this post made me do something, which I wouldn't have dreamt of doing. I bought a domain and POOF! one week flew, buying the domain, verifying it and finally now posting the first article under my own precious domain space and well! I paid for it not free anymore :)
This buying the domain through google, though was said easy, was frustrating for me. This was mainly because, I tend to complicate easy things.
So, I had to read hundred of links to get to a correct link, which guided me to "verify my domain". Ignore me if I use strange words like verification, go daddy, enam, I thought them strange too, until a week back, now they are as close to me, as my soul to my body. I cannot afford to let them go, as there is a risk of them taking my 10 USD along with them.
There is one question that for which I don't have an answer now. No make it two.
- I bought a domain, chose a template and added few funny tags, but what I see is my good ole blog template. How do I go about editing this? should I do it from blogger window or website window?
- Where do I write my new posts from? If blogger window, then this post will get published. If not god only knows how many more links I have to read.
Manoj And now, don't try getting away calling me hasty in buying the domain. I am telling this world (few readers, who reads my blog), that you encouraged me to buy one and you were there when I payed for it and when it became little taxing and after almost half a day of yours got wasted on straightening out the mess I created, you had the nerve to call me I was hasty. (God! that was the most compound/complicated sentence, I ever wrote).
Time to publish this post and hope that its gets published. If it gets published, then I am lucky and if it doesn't get published, you are lucky.
