I actually don’t know since when this blogging thing started. I feel the question is correct. It’s not Who is Pro-Blogger?? After this entry may be I’ll find out more about that. Since the start, there has been an exponential growth of the blogs. Almost anyone can create a blog. And anyone who knows to operate Computer and use internet is creating a blog. That is the secret of growth of the Bloggers.
But not all bloggers are same. Some bloggers are new or called as n00bs. They have little knowledge of blogging and just copy paste things around them. They write something about themselves and leave the blog. Many time they don’t update. I wanted a blog on Blogger and WordPress but the name I wanted was already taken. And it was just created and left. That’s not a Blogger.
Now how you can become a Pro-Blogger?? Truly speaking I don’t know. :love: Even I’m trying to find out this. The real definition of Pro-Blogger is not known to me. When I googled for the term I found the following definitions.
A Problogger or Professional Blogger is a person whose occupation is to write blogs for a living. He or she is considered an expert in his or her field and is an authority qualified to teach apprentices.
A Pro Blogger is one who gets paid for the Blog he writes or the posts he writes.
But then there are some Bloggers who are much successful in terms of hits to their sites. But still they don’t earn anything from their posts or blogs. Aren’t they Pro-Blogger?? Do they belong to Pro category??
The simple reason for the for writing this article is that I get to see many blogs or bloggers saying things. Like they want to be a Pro-Blogger. They are Pro-Blogger. May be the cash they earn is the only criteria for being a Pro-Blogger. Now I want to be a Pro-Blogger. It’s been six months I’ve been writing daily. I want that badge now ;-( . I feel related to the picture.
I’m a selfish person. I’ve may have told this before. For those who don’t know be aware of this fact now. The reason for this to write is again the blog. Almost from day one on linkreferral I’m getting reviews that my postings are funny. They contain humor and hence they liked it. Some exceptions actually found the thoughts(??????????????????????????) behind this humor. But most of them rated high for the humor.
Now the fact is that I’m not writing for all my readers. Sorry to say that. But that’s the fact. I write what I want to. I write what I liked to read and liked to comment on. So the writings may not be funny always. Don’t expect me to write funny posts always(Yeah… Yeah… Running away from expectations). As you can see the 7000+ hits mark passed I get decent amount of traffic.
The thing I’m worried is that my blog may be getting into a mould. A mould where only funny things are written and you expect such things every time you visit. You haven’t got a decent laugh of smile throughout the day and expect that this blog will make you. Yeah I would love to do that. I will surely post nonsense. The only thing I want from you is that don’t consider this as a full fledged humor blog. Continue reading →
I made some changes in my blog. They are minor or negligible but thought of writing about that. I removed the “Recent Posts” lists. Somehow I found that it didn’t made any sense putting there. (Oh….. When did I start thinking sensible??). The front page loads with five entries and “Recent Posts” with eight entries. I could have changed the number of entries but I thought it’ll make sidebar looooooooooong. This means now you have to click at bottom for previous entries. Till date I never noticed it’s written as “Next Page”. But that’s ok. I’ll change that.
The second thing was to show the number of posts along the category name. That will show how active(????) I’m in particular category. I need to improvise on “Free Web Hosts and Windows Tips and tricks”. The “Marathi\Hindi” category I’m stopping completely. I made a separate blog for that. But I’ll retain those posts here. The change will remind me where I’ve to post more. Yeah I forget that sometimes.
The third change was introduction of archives. The “Nonsense Archive”. That will show How much I post every month. So far so good. I’m able to post 30 posts per month. Thats a good sign. Moreover I may get some hits due to the size of archive. Many times when you see the archive contains good number of posts you start reading posts with a bit of interest. At least i do that.
Now have to wait and watch the results.
Just another web browser. For me it’s everything. It’s my default web browser. I was fed up of crashes with Firefox and high memory usage. The high memory usage problem still persists. Since the Browser is based on Firefox. But It doesn’t crashes. I don’t have to use many extensions as many features I want are integrated into it. I just love the Web clipboard feature. It’s like my life. Just clip to it and use it in my blog. Very simple. I can setup my blog through flock and never visit blog editor on my blog. The features of Blog editor are pretty neat. Then there is integration to many social networking sites and upload sites.
Flock 1.1 integrates social networking and media services including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Flickr, Blogger, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, etc. When logging into to any of the supported social services, Flock automatically activates these services within its features:
* Flock can indicate when friends have updated their profile, uploaded photos or other things.
* Flock has internal features that allow simpler sharing for text, links, photos or even entire videos.
* Flock has its own system allowing quick preview of online videos and photos, and subscription to video feeds.
* Flock’s Feed Reader organizes Atom and RSS feeds.
* Flock’s Blog Editor allows direct posting into a designated blog, along with being a blog reader.
* Flock also allows for third-party add-ons, including a number of Firefox extensions.
None in particular. Doesn’t support Windows 98 (I think so). Who uses that OS By the way.
I’m Just stunned with the response to my nonsense. 10 days ago the counter was at 4200 and now it crosses 5000. And lucky me the 5000th hit was by me. It’s not a great achievement for many. But it is for me. The response to my earlier blog here was poor. But after learning things i started to blog again. And the success. This time the credit goes to Linkreferral. 800 Hits in just 10 days. Now I’m looking forward to such traffic building sites to get more hits. So far the rating to my blog is 4.93/5. Pretty good after 48 reviews. Almost no negative comments makes feel proud. Now have to live upto the expectations and improvise more. Thanks all the visitors for the response.
