Reason: addition in the content
then comes good coments on friends blogs
arti that's nice but make sure that the comments should not be a favour but should be a counting one for the author of the post. ur thoughts :)
Ya.. Arti is right!!! :) I do it often.. :) Bt, sumtimes.. i miss dat part :D Will strt again :)
According to me Mohini gr8 blogging depends on the depth of the subject matter and practical suggestions :
1. Tips to travellers in the form of directions preferable a Map like Arti s blogs example
2. Title of the Blog is key to attracting attention For ex : Ajanta abandoned....Legacy lives on
3. Video link from youtube of own preferably and if not with due acknowledgement from other sites.
4. Oh my goodness, i don t want to hog the brickbats with your guideline being oneline TIPS
Umeshji I make it as this way 'ilu ka matlab - I love you BLOGGING'
Don't agree. One should only add those people with whom one's interests or wavelength matches.
yo, patience, no one can have more patience than you ,hunky
@Pramod n Arti - Thank-You both! I really.. think about titles wen posting.. :D nd also get attracted to those who keep diff. titles.. !! but d titles shud nt b a contrast to der post :) .. I feel.. so :)
@Mohini -- Haha, Thank-Youu!! :P :) Cheers to Genelia :) I'm a fan :)
Thank god, google and with the gift of your gab..... one can succeed. It is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration, shooting pics, photoshop, resizing, video film etc requires lot of patience and effort dear. Add map to a travelouge is a gr8 idea, but you got to buy the maps scan and than edit it to guide
My tip is to choose a topic that you care very, very deeply about (so you dont have as much writer's blog, though believe me it'll still happen) and then try to find some (unique or otherwise) way of looking at it that other people might also enjoy. (I mean that only if you, like me, write for an audience. But if not then why ask? Write what you love.)
thats an important point, passion & interest in a topic begets best post.
Exactly. I've tried loads of blogs on random topics hoping I'd get to know more on the topics as I wrote (or I was aiming for an audience) but that just plain doesnt work out.
minimising hurdles (captcha code etc.) in posting of comments by visitors.
i use intense debate, no spams till now. and f.b. comments too. lucky enough.
we can surely delete spams easily. what happens is, one reads, enjoys, then writes, racking up to find suitable words. then posts. and gets out thinking he has commented. but then again another page has turned up to decipher th jumbled code and write in caps lock n plain etc. so either you missed the comment or he takes double pains to pass that hurdle too.
using disqus or intense debate, is easy and simple. and jazzy too.
Pramodji this is best imp tip. Coz this happens exactly with me when I comment. I wish to use Intense debate or disqus , but what will happen to my previous comments? Can you please guide me? It's so easy for the readers just to enter name and email.
I too dont like other plugins... To enter the name, email and the blog address takes a long time when compared to the 5-7 random small case alphabets!!!
I liked Intense debate. @DS - your vision sounds nice, but it's easy to put your own e - mail and website, than to type some unknown words! This is my view.
Can we comment from the mobile phone, not an I phone but a normal smart phone with opera mini browser??
@Arti - I saw one blog with lot of spams, so it's really tough in that case to delete all. In intense debate, there is a feature where we can block spam.
all of u shared tips that we also believe in :) thanks.
one thing that we are doing now is "Reaching your communites".
I should say its not what you write but how you write it :-) way of expressing matters a lot.
Should read Indivine posts.. often .. when you sign in Indiblogger.. dat makes others happy..nd dey too will read our posts nd vote! (traffic increases instantly..)
But don't give a fake vote... just opening nd closing the sites.. read der posts.. comment.. nd add dem as ur network :)
meaning : its easy for a reader to figure out when the post is sincere...its boring when the whole tone of a post becomes judgemental, moralistic and preachy...so taking a look ( iam refering to personal blogs) at life with a lil bit of humour makes the whole thing more interesting....lets face it, noones interested in your life, unless its entertaining to them...so it helps if you dont take urself too seriously...
did that make sense?
well explained tys. thats why I tend to write to the point in as less words possible.
Tip for great blogging?
Depends on what is "greatness" for you in a blog:
- A channel to express yourself? Then keep it going, break language barriers, speak what your heart and mind says. Damn with the rest of the world.
- Or, A channel to earn money? Appease your target reader segment, advertise.....
- Or, something else?
If ya can't back your blog posts with actual facts, don't talk or sensationalize about it- we have the Indian media to do that dirty job.
Agreed. I follow this rule because I comment on the media!
+1 Neha , I agree very strongly with this . Its important to write for oneself than writing for others and is important to enjoy what you write also .
Somewhat true Mohini but its more of a statement than just three words.
Expect the unexpected is somehting that I have followed in my life and it has proved true from time to time... I have always got something in my life that is unexpected of me for my capacity or capability, but yeah when i think if that is unexpected (just like govinda getting katrina in Partner movie), i can well expect that too.. so its only positive to think, the results may be negative or positive that wont matter because you will be prepared to face either!!
@Hemal! So philosophical! But ya! I can understand it very well, just felt I have won a running race.......You write so thoughtful, which expresses thoughts which can be easily understood, if you wish to, and otherwise it is very simple which is not understandable still likable but not complicated!
Anyway, about life i totally agree, even I really don't knw what's gonna happene next, many of my plans seem failed but the unexpected is too much great than the simple plans, so be positively prepared ......as what you said!
