Wishing a prosperous new year to all my friends and readers. Forget the failures in 2009 and work towards success in this year. Make sure you get enough sleep to fuel your dreams while working.
I would like to thank all those who commented, criticized, liked, disliked my posts. I will try my best to improve and post more this year. That’s a promise I don’t want to break.
Till the next year…
Reading is an exercise. It’s like a work out for your brain. We are humans and we give much value to what we look like. So we exercise to get some muscle, six packs, eight packs and all that stuff. In the process we forget the thing which drives whole body. You know it, but you don’t give a damn. I don’t want to look like a geek or someone call me bookish.
Right from our childhood, we hate books. They are big turn offs. when you are out of the studies, you realize the importance of books. You wish you read at least you syllabus books. Now when you want to read you don’t have time. This is the situation with many. You get time to watch a porno, go to a club or just sleep. But no time for the books.
Exactly opposite to this, there are peoples who read a lot of books. That is good. In fact great. They are called Readers. Often they develop a taste of books. Here comes the bad thing. They try to impose their taste on you. You’ll fall for this as you think he is a good reader and has good knowledge about books. It’s not necessary that you’ll like what he likes. You may get frustrated by the book and won’t read ever again.
So what can you do in such a situation? It’s better that “YOU” do not to develop of taste. Read anything and just anything you get. Slowly it’ll become a habit and you’ll love reading. I did that. I always want people to read. Even if I know a book is bad, I stay away from making a comment. At the same time whatever others say, If I want to read a book I read it.
This exercise called reading not only trains your brain but increases your knowledge. This gives you a chance to show off at times. :angel:
And at last I am writing my review on entrecard. When I started using entrecard I wrote some posts regarding this site. I don’t think those who’ll be reading my blog will be unaware of entrecard. I’ll still give links to my earlier posts about entrecard.
Entrecard – what is it??
On a high
Things changed after that. I tried entrecard for a week. I got some serious traffic and good number of pageviews. But in the end it was not at all good traffic. As I expected earlier, the traffic was temporary. Things like “u drop I follow” will just give traffic to your blog. Not the readers. And I am always looking for readers. I don’t expect comments also. I know they’ll come automatically if you read.
So after a surge of traffic with the help of both entrecard and linkrefferal, I stopped. I stopped for a week. I didn’t comment anywhere nor did I replied to the comments posted on my posts. Just remained silent and did nothing, other than trying to solve domain problems. This was to check if I’m really getting readers or it’s temporary.
The results were expected. The average number of visitors dropped. And hence the pageviews. But still happy that I got those readers in spite of doing nothing. Now that I have got a domain I need to do better. So I’ll be active everywhere. At least I’ll try to. I’ll keep entrecard widget. It’s not because of the traffic, but the readers it gave. While looking at statistics I found that there is some increase in readers. Those who bookmarked my site. This number is very less compared to traffic. But good for me. In the end entrecard is good for those who have adsense on their blogs. They’ll get good revenue. But it’s not for those without adsense.
I wrote in a comment in the second link above that I’ll not post about traffic for 10 days. Now it’s more than that. ^_^ I’ll keep updating about my blogging progress.
Keep reading nonsense and
