• And we are 15

    And it’s 15 years!

    I set up ajaydsouza.com as an experiment to test this new blogging software called WordPress exactly 15 years ago. I never thought the site would continue till this day. But it did survive. I am glad that this site has remained the place I can pen my thoughts, talk about my life and proudly release my work. I started writing in the early days of blogging and before Facebook.Β In the beginning, this blog was a place I wrote about my life, blogging daily on many occasions. But then, work caught up, I became a lot less frequent. Today, most of my posts are about WordPress plugin releases with a sprinkling…

    Featured in Mumbai Mirror’s Bloggers’ Park

    Imagine my shock, surprise and excitement to find out that my review of Slumdog Millionaire was featured in Mumbai Mirror’s Bloggers’ Park. Mumbai Mirror is a newspaper focused for Mumbai that comes along with The Times of India. Though I must say that I didn’t see much traffic coming out here because of the article, I am pleased that my review was considered newspaper worthy πŸ™‚ Thank you Mumbai Mirror! And, thanks to @rahuljrark of Cool Tricks N Tips for pointing this out to me.

    Why You should Comment on my Blog

    Inspite of the fact that my comment policy (has anyone read these?) is a little “strict”, I’ve been very liberal about comments and trackbacks on this blog. My comments have finally risen and I’ve always believed to make it worth the while for you to comment out here. I’ve had the DoFollow plugin for a long long time already. DoFollow removes the nofollow that WordPress adds automatically. This means that now when you leave a URL with your comment, you will receive a clean link back to your site. Google will follow this and ensure you are benefited by the pagerank of the post and site. I have also recently…

    Have you taken the Poll

    Honestly, I am a little disappointed. I’ve been running the poll for five days now, and I’ve received only 25 votes. I thought polls were something that people loved and I did ask a relevant question. Anyway, I’m going to try my luck again and implore my 250+ readers plus the thousand or so who wander along here to take the poll below. It asks a simple question, which is your reason for having visited the blog. Take Our Poll from PollDaddy.com The idea behind this poll is to help generate content that you would like to read. I want you to read and join the participation and what better…

    Why The Digg Mafia Will Cost Kevin Rose Millions!

    Digg.com was one of the social networking/blogging successes of 2006, but recently it’s star has started to dim as people have started to question the efficiency of its voting system, that has actually resulted in a small minority, the ‘Digg Mafia’ deciding what makes it onto the homepage or not, rather than the wider userbase.

    Why are you here?

    Copyblogger has an interesting article on improving blog stickiness. Of the four points listed the point that topped the list was “Ask”, which is something I believe in. While this blog focuses on my life in general, it wouldn’t be successful without YOU. And what better way to ask than via polls. I’ve signed up with PollDaddy.com to bring you weekly or forthnightly polls so that I can gather more information about who you are and why you are here. The polls are ofcourse optional, but it will help me serve you better. The Poll for this week asks the question in the headline… Why are you here? Take Our…
