    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. 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…

    Happy New Year 2015!

    A happy new year to all the readers of my blog. May 2015 be a successful and happy year bringing you and your family good health and a lot of happiness! 2014 – Year in Review A year ago, I posted my 2013 year in review. Back then I set some personal goals and I must admit that I managed to miss most of them! (Note to self: Revisit year in review posts during the year). However, I am glad that I managed to keep at least a few of them and progressed on several of them. Although we didn’t visit the US and Canada this year due to a sudden change in plans, Ashwina and I…

    A year older… and a lot wiser…

    It’s my birthday today! With that, I edge just one year away from three-tenths of a century. And, as a gift to met, I’ve spent a good portion of the night working on a new theme for this blog, one which was long pending. After a lot of searching I came across Paperpunch Theme by The Theme Foundry which I fell in love with almost instantly. Paperpunch is a clean and easy to use theme, yet comes packed with some decent free features. You can upgrade to the Pro version which makes life a lot easier! My plugin Add to Footer definitely made life a bit easier, since I didn’t…

    AjayDSouza.com is now on Facebook

    It was about time… I have finally created a Facebook page for this blog. Up until now my profile has been one of the promotion media for the blog. Now, I hope to increase the number of persons following this blog via Facebook. If you have been reading this blog, do hit the like button on the Facebook page. I still can’t create a specific username for the page. I believe it is just a matter of time before I can do so. If you have become a fan of this page, do comment below and let me know.

    Happy New Year 2010 & 2009 in Review

    Wishing all my dedicated readers a Very Very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2010! How did you bring in the new year? I spent it quietly at home. Looking back at 2009, I must say that it has been a rather successful year for me on all fronts. While I may not have achieved most of the goals I set for Techtites, it was definitely a lot better than 2008. I have refrained from setting any goals for this blog, primarily because it serves as a personal blog. At this time of the year, I normally make a very detailed post about my activities during the year. This year, I’ll…

    I’ve been busy!

    The last month reminds me of 2007 when I just entered SCMHRD as a budding MBA student. Life was totally crazy then since I just didn’t have the time to blog or even check my email. That is something that I have been feeling off late. Well, blame it on my exhausting job. In my line of work, the only thing that keeps us going is the level of enjoyment we have at work. Otherwise, I am sure I wouldn’t have survived! On the work front, I’ve been working non-stop on a good number of weekends! I had an extra day off in which I tried really hard to complete…

    ajaydsouza.com has a new look. Still need your suggestions

    If you’re reading this in your feed reader, then hit this link now. I mentioned earlier that I moved this blog to Media Temple yesterday. However, on monitoring the same, I have realized that I am still not at optimum levels. I’m not really sure what the reason for the super high resource usage is, but it is usually the themes and the plugins. So, as a test, I have decided to change the theme in an attempt to find a really light one. One of my most read blogs is Weblog Tools Collection, and in a recent post, I stumbled upon Swift. This is a three column theme from…

    So what is ajaydsouza.com all about?

    This blog has been called lots of things: excellent, good, fun, enjoyable, and even boring, monotonous, horrendous (ok not this one). The most recent comment has been “boring”. So, why was it called boring. Because, it has been a while since I made a personal post. This blog sees two types of visitors, viz. those who visit my blog for the personal posts and those who visit my blog for the WordPress related posts, plugins and the theme. When I started ajaydsouza.com in October 2003, I had only one thing in mind, blogging about my life. In fact, even till today, most of my posts are still filed under Personal.…

    Off to Bengaluru

    If you?re reading this post, I?m already on the plane or maybe even in Bangalore. If you?ve been following this blog for a while, you?d know that I got placed through my college last November. As required by the job, I have to relocate to the city of Bangalore and the time has finally come for it. This is in fact the first time I?ve ventured out of the safety of Mumbai into the unknown. Two years back when I set out to do my MBA in SCMHRD, Pune, I knew that I had everything planned and fixed with no need to worry about food, clothing or shelter. This time,…

    A Week went by with some New Lookers

    What better way for a blogger and a developer to pass his time than to blog and develop 🙂 That’s exactly what I have been up to this past week or so. New Plugins So, the past week has seen a new plugin added to my already growing list of plugins. Over, the next week I intend to continue work on the plugins. I plan on scrapping a few ones which have long since served their purpose as well as reworking others. The latest ones could also do with many feature additions. So stay tuned for a few releases 🙂 New look for Techtites I’ve also been working on a…
