New Home.

It has been long since I have written anything and I promise to come back with something as soon as I get time from the chores that I really don’t enjoy doing 😉

But this post is to inform all my readers that I am shifting to a new home, a new web address which is- https://aestheticmiradh.com/

I am not much of a web master here, and will really appreciate any kind of help from fellow bloggers. So do let me know if anything is wrong with my website currently.

I will learn things slowly, but I definitely will,  so just be patient readers and fellow bloggers 🙂

Thank you so much for your constant support.

Lost!

I have been off lately, from blogging, from WordPress for which I don’t even have a specific reason.

It all started a while ago when I started drifting off from everything, even the things which gave me pleasure, started boring me. I don’t know how it started, but somehow it all led to me being a complete static person. I wouldn’t say I was too busy working, or studying, I was simply occupied with my day to day work, from which I could take time out for everything, even blogging.

BUT THE PROBLEM IS, I DIDN’T DO IT.

I DID NOTHING.

I wouldn’t say I was away from work too, no, that didn’t happen. Everything kept going on as it should, but only without interest and my heart in it. Life moved on, but I wasn’t truly happy with what was  happening.

My friends and family of course thinks all is well because by now I have mastered the art of deceiving my feelings in front of them. My social life too seemed pretty active which these days, make people believe that the person is all right!

So when I logged into WordPress to find so many people concerned about my absence, I was truly touched. I wouldn’t say I am good now, the process of recovery is still going on. But I am way better than I was a few days ago.

What happened? I don’t know!

I just lost the motivation to do anything in particular. I have been simply sulking, having lost the vigor to do anything. This anything comprises from blogging to studying to even talking to people.

I hope to get out of this mood soon enough. I hope to find my path soon.

But before that I truly thank you all for even considering my absence in your thoughts.

 

26 Short Stories, 7 days -Rajaraman R.

What I learnt by writing 26 short stories in 7 days:

The kick you need as an upcoming writer

-Rajaraman R.

Length: 37 pages

Mr. Rajaraman R has come up with this short yet exceptional book detailing his experiences and learnings while writing 26 short stories in a span of just 7 days.

He starts with his initial planning of taking up this challenge, and ends with sharing some writing tips for novice writers. The small book notes how he took up the challenge and how he himself grows as a writer, coming full circle from not being a confident writer, to being one.

The book portrays the possibilities and the impossibilities of being a fictional writer. Though he divides his time for writing doing the entire math, we realise that sometimes the tools aren’t just enough when it comes to writing.

Despite the hurdles the 26 stories were completed giving the writer a different perspective of himself. Mr. Raja not only learns about himself, but he also shares wonderful writing tips in the book, which he learnt in the process of writing these fictional stories.

He aspires to write more novels and short stories in the years to come, and we wish him all the best.

You can read his stories and other fiction writing at http://rajawrites.com

The book is on kindle unlimited and can also be bought on amazon at a very convenient price.

A year passed by!

How hard is blogging according to you?

Of course I’d expect various answers; one among them would most certainly be that it is extremely time consuming. I agree to it. I wouldn’t lie and most of the times there isn’t enough time really. And that is the first and foremost reason that I failed at blogging!

Yeah, if you consider this site as ‘not failed’ then I would like to tell you that this is not my only try at being in the blogging community. I started my very first blog when I was in my first year of college, absolutely the wrong time for me. I scribbled there for a whole year, where basically no one read what I wrote, apart from a couple of friends who knew me already. Eventually, it became a personal diary for me when I hid my site from public, making it a private site. And now it’s no longer there. I completely deleted it. So that was my first fail!

Then came this site, yes, you heard it right! I opened this site last year, somewhere around March or April; I did a few posts, and tried a little something about being heard. Post two months, I deleted this site too but I kept the domain, and never really removed the entire account. So that was my second fail.

I was really worried at the fail. I mean I don’t like failure, honestly who does? I have tried a lot of things and except for mathematics and Accounts I have never been a failure, and that’s when it struck me that I really couldn’t deal with it.

So that’s how I started this blog which I am writing on today, last August. Today I complete a whole year of blogging. I don’t know about failing or not, I think I certainly didn’t let this one go. As of now I  have 230 posts and more than 22000 views, 11000 visitors and a set of followers who really appreciate my work and motivate me.  I don’t know, you tell me how have I been doing? I do not believe in numbers and yet here I am putting forward the numbers. Why? Because I have been trained to do so, we need marks everywhere to pass exams, we need a certain cut off to enter a competitive exams. Intelligence isn’t important, marks and numbers are. But please don’t judge me by the marks. Tell me honestly.

Since the last year that I wrote “I am still finding myself”, there have been some changes.  I wouldn’t say that the questions have disappeared altogether but I have some answers now. But I am yet to find the rest.

Also, just so I don’t lose hope, and don’t start fading away just when I realised that I am here since a year, I put myself in a zone. I tried it last month too, but I couldn’t complete it due to network issues in my area (no excuses), so now may be August is my month. I tried to scribble something every single day, not to increase my stats, not for the number of posts, not for anything else, just for myself. Might as well help me in some way. I don’t know what I was trying to prove to myself, but I did it is a challenge and so far I have not missed a day this month.

And yes, thank you to all you lovely people for joining me in the journey, without you all, every single one of you; this wouldn’t even be a journey.

WordPress World.

People just drift away, don’t they?

I took refuge in the world of writing and blogging, thinking that everything will be different here. And yes, it was! I have loved here always.

But just like the real world, I have lost some of the virtual friends too. When I started blogging, I did not know anyone here, and there were few people who would be always here for me, would read my posts, let me know how they feel about it. I loved reading their blogs too. But where are they?

They seem to have just vanished. I keep visiting their blogs- no recent posts! I fill up a comment on the “Contact us” page, but there is no reply. I guess they have just stopped blogging.

Then there are people who just vanish away, because of the wordpress glitches, I though they had gone away too, until of course I open my spam folder only to know they have been always there. Seriously, what is up with this spam thing?

So before I find anyone else missing from this virtual world, I’d just want to say thank you for always listening to my ramblings. You do mean a lot to me whether I say it or not!

And also please keep checking your spam folders! (Just in case!)

 

Pet video Verify #2

I just told you lovely people about the pet video verify, so let me add something more about it.

You can find them at- http://www.petvideoverify.com and get all kinds of details there too.

Something interesting that I’d like to share about them too-

 

Pet Video Verify – Pet Microchip Alternative

Pet Video Verify’s software is video identification for your pet!

Today lost and found pets are a big issue. Many pet owners have high anxiety that their pet is going to get lost. They should be worried, the statistics are that many pets do get lost, it is estimated that 1 in 3 pets will get lost sometime time in their lifetime. If you don’t act quickly and have systems in place, you may never see the pet again. Pet Video Verify is developing applications that help you put systems in place that help manage your pets better with this website.

Pet Video Verify identification system is trying to revolutionize how lost pets are found and returned to the owner. In the current version of the web application, the pet owner looks over the pet for special attributes and takes measurements, then they video the pet including the special attributes and measurements, you can see an example of a video identification by clicking here. When all these special attributes and measurements are put together, virtually any pet can be identified. A video of your pet is a lot better way to identify them because with a video you can get all parts of the pet’s body. In the future, we are going to include electronic measurements of the pet in the video!

Pet Video Verify has integrated another application into its software and it is the ability to store pet medical records online by visiting here. When you have access to your pet medical records online, you can access the medical records anytime you need them from any device that is connected to the Internet. Keeping your pet medical records online also help veterinarians because if your pet gets lost and ends up at the vet, the vet may not know the identity of your pet. The vet can use the video identification to identify your pet and also pull your pet’s medical records! Very helpful and can save your pet’s life!

Pet Video Verify has an application where pet owners can sell their used pet items to other pet owners. Pet owners search the Internet looking for pet items. Many would prefer pet items that have already been used and that the owner needs to get rid of, which can be found here. They can search Pet Video Verify for these items and contact the owner to purchase those items.

Pet Video Verify also receives pet coupons from major retailers at their site. We receive the coupons or deals from big retailers such as PetSmart! We push the coupons and deals directly to our users helping them find deals on new items that they need for their pet! We are getting new advertisers all the time so we receive lots of good coupons and deals!

Pet Video Verify also has a pet supply store for when you want new pet items instead of used ones!  We are updating these new pet items all the time.  Check out these items by clicking here!

You can also post your cute pet pictures for everyone to see on our website. People love cute pet pictures because they bring joy to their life. Pet owners love posting them because they are proud of their pet and they want them to bring joy to other people.  People also love watching funny pet videos, it brings joy and laughter to their day!  You can submit your funny pet videos and watch others by clicking here!

 

PS: I am doing sharing their posts for no personal reasons just for the sole purpose of pets. So please do visit them. Thanks in advance.

Much love.
