New year started well for me. On the first day itself my blog went down. It was offline for two days. I was already frustrated with my previous webhost so I decided to look for a new one. Now the blog runs on paid hosting and I don’t expect downtime here. But the start with this hosting was also not good. I went through a lot of trouble to import my blog database here. This is usually an easy task for me but it took almost 5 hours to get through.
I get instant support but the problem is he doesn’t understand the problem easily, even if I put everything in detail. That is minus point. I hope not to get any troubles from this hosting. I’ll have to monitor this for a month at least to check the uptime and errors. There is no room for such things now.
Meanwhile, I joined my sixth job I lost my last job 15 days back. Thanks to economic crisis. This job looks good like (the earlier one) . I’ll be seating on frying pan here. The toughest job of my life is here and I am ready for it. There are many new things I’ll be learning. I never did a job like this so have little knowledge. Results will be in the form of mistakes which are not allowed in any profession.
Fingers crossed till six month job. If I can survive this span then I can survive the whole year. Trying to grasp things quickly. Problem is that I don’t have much time to study drawings on site. That is a big hurdle and I have to overcome it. Well…. very quickly…
BTW… Anyone missed me for two days??
2008 is gone and here is 2009 with new hopes and new dreams. Sad but true that I want to forget 2008 for all the bad things happened. But happy to have learned from the bad moments. I had wonderful year 2007 and was the best year of my life. I thought it will continue in 2008 but that didn’t happen.
When I look with a different angle things look different. I learned how to blog and basic SEO stuff in this year. Although there is much more to learn I am happy with what I learned. I hope to gain much more knowledge in this field this year and will dedicate some time daily to learn. When I started blogging I never thought I’ll have my own TLD and I’ll earn from the blog. At the end of the year both things happened.
So I set some targets for my blog this year. Small targets as I am not full time blogger.
- Increase feed readers to at least 300. Currently it’s 40
- Touch 100UV\day. Currently its around 50UV\day
- Start a niche blog in my field of construction
- Earn around $100\month from this blog
- Interact with network members I have formed
- And above all, write better and better
These are small goals as I am part-time blogger. I will try my best to go beyond these figures. I also hope to get help from all the friends I made while blogging and also from my readers.
Wishing all my friends and readers a happy and prosperous new year…
It’s second last day of the year and I am busy in wrapping up things. I have taken up a challenge to make a top ten list of top ten lists. So searching through the web for the best ones. So far I have found seven and I have to find the next three and post tomorrow. So the “research” is still going on.
Meanwhile, I was offline for the morning. I had to finish some paperwork and that took the whole morning. I had to travel to get to the agents office. That is some 20Km away. But I was surprised to see that there is not much noise and the “New year environment” as it used to be. One day left. Who knows it may be different tomorrow. I’ll be visiting capital tomorrow hoping for the best.
Yesterday and today I have been multi-tasking. Just like that baby in the picture. I wish I had a laptop. 😆 My breakfast and Tea was besides my computer. I almost forgot about it and when I realized it was cold. I am not so good at multi-tasking. It did help in finishing some work quickly. Now back to work. I’ll try to finish and find some time for new year eve. What are your plans?
Winter is here. It will be here for four months, celebrate Christmas and New year with us and then go on a eight months vacation. What I like about winter is that it cools down all the thing around. Baked by the October heat, I was eagerly waiting for this. For the last few days I am feeling winter. Now I am waiting for Santa. Few days to go now.
With winter falling of leaves starts. Some actually divide the season into Fall and Winter. I am not a poet or a novel writer. So winter it is. Trees go naked after shedding their leaves. There is no censorship for this. If one tree looks ugly then other looks beautiful after shedding. It’s like comparing Big Momma with Jessica alba. The fallen leafs have their own beauty. I love to stand below a tree and watch a leaf falling. Going left… and then right… swirl… to the ground.
When this happens I feel the presence of wind element. Wind starts dancing with the leafs. If observed carefully it looks better than what we dance. (Dance?? No. Not me.) What I like about wind is it takes a fallen leaf from the ground and takes that towards the sky. Like a true supporter who keeps faith in you, guides you, and make you taste success.
Have you ever tried to do this? Have you ever supported someone who fell??(Maybe over a banana peel) and that too without laughing at him? You may have done that with someone in your relation. not with anyone else. I cannot tell you to be like wind else you will blow away anything that’s coming in your way instead of just going around it. I’ll just tell you to help someone.(that someone can be the person fallen over banana peel).
Today is friendship day. It is supposed to be the first Sunday of August. Friendship is a relation which stands out of all. And today is the day to remember all your friends anywhere on earth or traveling in space or may be somewhere underground. Just remember the friend and I assure he’ll be doing the same. Whenever I remember a friend of mine I somehow get a visit in next couple of days. Or a call at least. Why I don’t call my friends is out of question. Something I never understood of myself. I do call them sometimes. But not often.
It used to be often when I was in college. Since my professional life there have been distances. My friends are found to be nowhere. I am still searching them on orkut and trying to have a knot there. When I am away from old friends it’s good that I am finding some new ones. Then I remember old saying. “Old is Gold”. They are pieces of gold and make me rich.
So this post is to remember all my friends all around the world whom I don’t contact or lost my contact. I still remember you. I still miss you. You always have a place in my heart.
