When we lose someone dear....

I found no better way to title my post. I am sure each one of us would have gone through the "process" ( if i can call it that) of losing someone dear. Its painful and it hurts. Unfortunately i have been through it thrice.
Of course every incident makes a new "me". But i have to mention it again it is painful. 
I lost my dearest pet a few days back. Some may think, well whats the big deal in losing a pet? I agree. Its no big deal if you treat it as a pet. For us she was one amongst us. A family member. She had lived with us for fourteen long years and one day suddenly she is gone. I keep looking at her favorite spots desperately thinking , yes here she comes. Unfortunately for us and for her she had lost her eyesight. I would rather like to think that she was relieved from her suffering. But what about the void that she left? They say time is the best healer but patience is something that i do not have.........
All i can say is that may her innocent soul R.I.P.....

OMG! I am back again and so soon? Even I'm surprised. But life is all about surprises right? I have a new theme on my blog after so many years. (6 years i guess). I designed it myself. I know you won't believe me. But i can boast a little bit about my knowledge of arts since i was a fine arts student and of course with the plethora of amazing software available today almost anyone on earth can design a theme!
So what is it that makes this time special for me? Well its my birthday next month.At 28  i cannot as much as imagine jumping in joy and expect everyone to sing a "Happy Birthday" but i have always been excited about birthdays. I do regret getting older but there are somethings in life that have to move forward. Yes i miss those golden days. I mean there is so much to be done that could have been done then. I am sure most of you agree with me. 
You know my weight issues have always caught up at a steady pace with me. Plus i have inherited a legacy of being tall from my grandparents.  So much so that kids never fall back addressing me as "aunty". Gosh! too much i say. Don't laugh people. I know it was embarrassing at first but then i realized that i have to accept my age. Of course i am not that old to be addressed as an aunty but i love kids and i don't mind being called anything by them :-) ( he he he i am mad)
See i wandered off topic again. Well what i wanted to say was that i have a weird birthday wish this year. I want a cute little cuckoo clock for my room. I have always been fascinated by it since childhood. Just imagine that little cuckoo annoying you every hour with its cute "cuckoo sound". So guys please pray for me that i get my wish fulfilled this year. 
Guess i have written too much. Its very much unlike me. See ya around and thanks a ton for stopping by.
Good day and Cheers!

Some more ramblings....

hey everyone (is there someone?..... okay i don't know really if someone reads my posts or not)

I was just going through a lot of random blogs. And then suddenly something inside me sprang up and said "Lets write a blog post!" Sounds like I've climbed the Mt.Everest right? Well yes I'm my own favorite. So everything i say / do is special to me. ;-)
I've aptly used the word "ramblings" in my post title. I'm  a confused lot lately. The last two years have been a roller coaster ride for me. I can hardly think without getting confused all over again. But i have a saving grace. I find solace in knitting. All right people, the guys reading this post may say "knitting? not my cup of tea" . I can understand that. And the girls, well knitting is an art that is slowly disappearing in India. I am not sure if there are avid knitters still left. At least i haven't come across any. So there may not be many girls that will actually love knitting.
As for me i love this art. Its engrossing, enjoying and above all, i take pride in my creations. I had a hard time looking for knitting yarn since the place i live, acts as if it is alien to knitting. Same is the case with crochet hooks or knitting needles. All right guys so now don't look so bored. i am not gonna dedicate this post "in the memory of knitting". I am just rambling remember?
As it is with the onset of facebook people hardly get time to read blogs. (get time? sounds like an excuse? well if you can get time to update your status you can surely get time to read a post). I wonder who is gonna read mine.
I will add some more inputs to this post as and when the "something inside me" springs up again. Till then love life , live life and thanks for reading.

Affiliate Marketing continued

Hey everyone
So i am back again with another post. I had talked about affiliate marketing in my previous post. If you haven't read it yet i would recommend that you do so here.
So now that you have decided to take the plunge you may ask "what next"? Well since you have to promote stuff online you need some space to do so. To explain it in a better way let us take an example. You have applied to be an affiliate at a site that sells shoes. Majority of them will require that you own a website of your own. You will say "i do not have one. And i am no designer". The most interesting part here is that nowadays even people with zero knowledge about websites can have one of their own. How is it possible? Let us go through some ways with which you have have a space or a website of your own.

This very popular blogging platform has now become a household name owing to its simplicity and ease of use. WordPress users swear by the fact that its damn easy to create a site via word press.  WordPress offers a variety of features to its users including themes and plugins  (in simple words easy to use pieces of code that hep you run your site better). there are two ways to create your own site using wordpress. One is to used a slef-hosted option and the second is to host your site on wordpress itself. Assuming that you have knowledge about hosting and domains ( if not, Google is your friend) you can easily understand that self-hosting means that you set up your wordpress site on your own host with the domain of your choice. Similarly, wordpress hosted sites will have an extension of "" in the domain. For example, if i were to create a wordpress site using the name "my own space" it will appear as "" You can visit for wordpress hosted site and for a self-hosted site. The choice is yours.

Next comes blogger. Now since you are already here reading this i do not need to explain about blogger. Creating a blog on blogger is as easy as typing 1-2-3. You can further customize your blog by adding your own domain instead of the traditional ""

So now that you know the basics let me tell you that the content you post in your blog/site is equally important. Nowadays search engines and specially "Google" takes things very seriously when it comes to content. If you really want your site to become popular and get visitors you have to make sure that you have original content on your site. If by chance you have to copy the content make sure that you quote or link back to the original author. I am telling this out of experience. Many of my sites have suffered heavily due to duplicate content issues. I guess it was a lesson well learnt but the hard way.

So much so for now.I'll be talking more about SEO and other important things in my next post. Till then keep reading.

My understanding of Internet Marketing

Yes guys this is not a commercial blog. But still i feel i can write about anything that comes to my mind since its My Own Space! :-)
So talking about internet marketing, it sounds to be a very professional word at first. From all these years of using the internet, i have developed my own understanding of internet marketing. Of course professionals can explain it much better than me but still i believe in simplifying things and breaking each thing into my mind to pieces, so that i can have a better understanding. Sounds complicated. Yes i know.
There was a time when search engines were yet to establish themselves and selling things over the internet was a child's play. However, over the years things have evolved so much and people have gained a batter understanding of internet marketing. 
So what exactly is this internet marketing? In simple words, it is a term that refers to doing your business in the virtual world. i.e. online.So many of you may say "Gosh i do not have a business. How does it matter to me?". As i said earlier Internet Marketing is a general word and it can be further categorized into may options. What really matters to us is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing does not really require you to have a company or any business. Being an affiliate generally means that you sell something on behalf of someone and earn your commission. Sounds great? Yes it does. But as they say "There's no free lunch", you have to be prepared to dedicate yourself to it and make up your mind to invest something before you start getting the results. This is the hardest part i know but there is no way out really. 
Alright so i made up my mind. What next? Well, patience is a virtue. More in my next post. See ya soon. Keep reading.

Do you believe in the power of prayer?

hi everyone. here i am again writing on a random topic ( just crossed my mind).
I can't say that i was born into a typical Indian household ( full of traditions, sometimes unwanted) i was allowed to do whatever i wanted ever since i was kid. That habit of mine is now, unfortunately, termed as laziness ( ya whatever). lol
Anyways there is one thing that my mom always insists. Prayer. I am not an atheist. Nor am i a staunch believer of God. But i do pray. There's one friend of mine who keeps telling me to "pray" for her so that she gets the love of her life. Of course i do pray for her but i am not sure if just praying works. Imagine what would the world be like if God granted each and every prayer on earth! I can't stop laughing at this thought.
Here is a topic to ponder.
see ya soon

There should be a limit to laziness....

LOL ..... I have to be laughing at this title. I created this blog to write something useful but in the course of years i have become all the more lazy. What else could account for such gaps between my posts. When i first introduced myself to the internet the first thing that i came across was a blog. The word sounded queer to me and a little research told me that a blog was meant to be updated regularly. But i couldn't. I feel sorry for myself. But that's that. life changes dramatically and when i look back and see myself a few years ago i am like " God just look at yourself." :-)
The one thing that has noticeably changed in me is my weight. LOL. I used to be a skinny thing years back but nowadays people have to actually make sure that its me. I should again be laughing at this.
I have no idea how many people are gonna read this. But i know one thing there are many people who will identify with whatever i have written here provided thy have the patience to read till the end.
I am not sure why i am writing this post. Just thought that i should refresh my memories with blogging and of course the word "blog". :-)
See ya around and yes................soon!
