Updates (Dec.06.08)

Ive been trying to make my blog a little more charming and attractive to a layman’ eyes.. at the same time, getting more viewers and as you can see.. more people “enchanted” πŸ˜‰

Latest Addition:

Dec. 6, 08: I took this out.. Didn’t feel as though it applied anymore…. –> [ http://daisypath.com/ is surely worth a visit. Thats from where I built my design path for my wedding πŸ™‚ Aug.14,08 –> Ive now taken off “DAISY PATH” as its been sometime since Ive gotten married and had a great honeymoon too.. πŸ™‚ ]

Nov. 17, 08 : I have begun de-cluttering my sidebar.. I felt it was just too cluttersome!!! πŸ™‚

Here’ all that I have done till just before my last update which I have published above..

BIRTH: I created my blog on the 12th week of the year.. that would be between 17th and 23rd of March, 2008.

Upon tag surfing, I have come across many wonderful, touching, beautifully written, surprising as well as shocking articles..! Truly a variety.

From http://myeverchangingmoods.wordpress.com (who by the way has taken the page off as he is going on a makeover), I created my page “20 questions”, which is actually an interesting assortment of questions..

The “A Few of my Favourite Things” page was made on the spur of the moment.,as I sat on my porch, sipping warm chocolate milk and watching the rain fall…

Another fellow blog member whose name Im so very sorry.. is just eluding my mind right now..:( gave me the idea of posting my YAHOO AVATAR on WordPress…I thought it briliant! πŸ™‚ For the avatar to be updated as and when you change it, you can go to YAHOO AVATARS –> EXPORT –> Click on your preferences and select the code –> in WordPress, go to DASHBOARD –> DESIGN –> WIDGETS –> TEXT BOX –> Paste the code and update your site. This easy immediate update method I learnt fromΒ http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/avatars/preferences/avatar-21.html

http://daisypath.com/ is surely worth a visit. Thats from where I built my design path for my wedding πŸ™‚ Aug.14,08 –> Ive now taken off “DAISY PATH” as its been sometime since Ive gotten married and had a great honeymoon too.. πŸ™‚ But its back up counting down the days for my 1st anniversary!! πŸ™‚

I took this out –> [ Upon visiting http://limerickgal.wordpress.com/ , I got a shock upon seeing the DANASOFT SIGN. Only after reading the hows and whys did I understand what exactly it is.. Real freaky.. Check that out!!! πŸ˜‰ Its a fun widget. When people see the sign, they will see all sorts of spooky info about them!( It works like a one-way mirror.) ]

Check out http://nirveda.wordpress.com/just-a-click/ because she is doing a good job here.. and thus, this is from where I too got the FREE RICE GAME link.. hope you all would visit this site, play the game and help the poor and hungry..

A site to watch out for is http://youniverse.com/ Really brilliant! It gave me a precise and very apt summarization of myself!!!! πŸ™‚

Sept 29, 08: Being a member of the Foodies Blogroll thanks to http://www.leftoverqueen.com/ I justΒ  got itsΒ  widget which Is the latest thing Ive done on my site.. Getting a widget is quite easy since as you know, the site provides you with the required code. So, if you have recipes on your site, check out the Foodies Bogroll.. By the way, http://www.leftoverqueen.com/ has WONDERFUL pictures of yummy yummy stuff!!

There’ this site called http://www.flagcounter.com which gives us a widget that shows the number of visitors from a particular country. Quite colourful with all the flags… I got the idea from http://sanityfound.wordpress.com/2008/08/20/the-gift-of-giving/

FLICKR pictures are some of the pictures I thought were breathtakingly beautiful! What did you think of them?

THE SECRET is a wonderful book and provides more motivation and feelings of joy than most other things.. You really ought to read that book. For a net experience –> http://www.thesecret.tv/

Its from http://alwaysthatgirl.wordpress.com/ that I got the idea of CLUSTR MAPS which was pretty nice.. and the red dots provide so much of encouragement.. esp when its number increases πŸ˜‰

DARK WARRIORS is a game I play very frequently and I am really taken up by it.. It is fun and it is simple.. at least it is not too complicated.. and since there is a revive for non-subscribers every one hour, your time is pretty much occupied by the game:) So, I thought I could introduce all of you to it too..

http://codythomas.wordpress.com/2008/05/28/blogging-201/ helped me out with TECHNORATI and his blog post is what made me look into http://www.sitemeter.com/?a=signupoptions and http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/blogs;jsessionid=A22253582240AFCE7412AF2D6E1BBAB1.app3

From FEED BURNER I got the idea of the headline animator and the reader stats counter.

I realized that I wanted people to only read my posts and not actually copy stuff from it cz’ it is all original matter.. my personal stuff thats been put out here so that I could share it with you all…So, from MY FREE COPYRIGHT, I registered for the appropriate facility of copyrights…

I came across http://coffeecupprincess.wordpress.com/2008/06/14/weddings-trying-to-find-the-right-gowns/#comment-243, while tag surfing ‘weddings’ and chanced by www.mypagerank.net from where I have added my GOOGLE PAGERANK BUTTON and also a free counter – RED COUNTER.

I have also added the link to my Technorati Authority so that you (and me!) would have an idea as to the number of blogs linking to my website in the last 6 months.

[Technorati Rank is calculated based on how far you are from the top. The blog with the highest Technorati Authority is the #1 ranked blog. The smaller your Technorati Rank, the closer you are to the top.]

I took this out too –> [ Sept 24, 08: http://www.kitconet.com/ gave me the widget for the graph between Indian Rupees and The price of gold per gram. ]

Aug.28,08: As I’m trying to make my blog available to a larger number of people, I decided to submit my blog to some blog directories such as: Blog Fusion Directory, Blog Catalog, Bloggapedia, Blogarama, Photarium.

Sept.23,08: Blogged is a blogs directory and I submitted my blog to this directory under the title Personals. Check it out and if possible, do write me a review about how you liked my page πŸ™‚

Many others have also helped me with the additions and problems on this blog that I faced in the very beginning (and sometimes still do ;-))…through the WordPress Forums.

5. Giselle - June 19, 2008

thnx for that assurance πŸ™‚ i was wondering how it might be after marriage even though we know each other for quite a few years now.. πŸ™‚
dont u think people oughta just enjoy marriage to the fullest and let people onto how much they are enjoying it too πŸ˜‰

6. Cymbria - June 19, 2008

I agree completely! Marriage should be a “go with the flow” good time ride. And when it isn’t, I turn to my personal motto: “Don’t compromise…negotiate!”

7. Giselle - June 20, 2008

But isnt marriage all about adjustment and compromise? thats what I am kept on being told.. how do u negotiate amidst this?

8. nirveda - June 22, 2008
