Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

NeoTrackers Jul 03, 2008

I installed the widget from NeoWORX. Really snazzy stuff - only prob is you have to pay to get the premium version which is really top notch.

I installed the widget about a week ago and for the last 7 days, I've logged 202 visitors from 20 countries and 62 cities (although I have a prob with this widget). Cities if you don't register it in your profile correctly, then it kinda churns out a bit of garbage.

I mean is United Kingdom and Malaysia a city? Last I checked, these were countries. *eheheh* ok ok no need to get anal.

But that's quite exciting to know that I have traffic through my blog. Since I added the site tracker as at 21:30 this evening I've had 718 people walk through and that's about less than 3 months ago. I know most of it's my own pals ... but looking at some of the countries I'm like OH? I mean Israel? I don't know anyone from there ... There's Taiwan too.

And eh Europe?? Isn't that a continent?? but anyhows, it's all quite exciting how far reaching internet has made us. We can be sitting in smalltown Seremban unknown to most people and because I speak one of the common lingua franca and I have access to the net, I can reach out to people unknown to me personally.

In that vein, I created 2 new blogs today (no no before you think it's going to be a total overdose of .ani). It's one each for Ashna and Kasha. Templates they both like and just one entry for now. Am planning out my approach for their blogs. I hope that later on they will inherit the maintenance of their own blogs. For now, I can add snip snaps from their view of the world as kids.

My NeoWORX trial ends tomorrow so I won't have that funky fireflies template anymore and being a IT slave, I tried every possible means to try and strip the coding hehe .... I wish I had the fireflies as a template ... so calming ... but I guess the idea is to know who is coming through and I'd really appreciate a hello in my shoutmix box :)

I found another interesting site, which allows you to create your own Blidget (blog widget) and you can see a sample of it here - my poetry blog has it's own blidget now :). To get really interesting widgets and create your own blidgets and also be able to turn that into a Facebook application (and for free from what I noted playing around with the site - which is vital!!) you should visit Widgetbox. Have fun with this one folks.

For free tracker ... almost like NeoWORX but less funky you can try Feedjit. I'm testing it as of today ... traffic through takes an hour to start posting after you've added the widget to your blog. Dali I think you might like this one although not as happening as NeoWORX ;)

Have been looking at a number of blogs and styles and I think there's a huge potential to look into. Am tired of working for others and ending up way down on the appreciated employee list. I wanted to start trying my hand at being a home mommy when Ashna was born ... but Jacob said no no we need two incomes. Tried to get the go ahead again after Kasha was born and he got the Bangkok posting.

Instead he packed up and left with her. And since then I'm working not so much because I am so in love with my job but because I need to moolah for the girls since he's not exactly forthcoming in moolah support for the girls.

Hey .ani has had to learn to be independent so let me figure this out ... maybe that's the restlessness I am feeling now - I need to find ways to pump up the empty bank account. Who knows what the future holds but I am surely going to be looking into every avenue possible ... and errrr if you're a MLM pipeline fanatic - skip me ok! Am not the least bit interested in laying pipelines or being the the have time have money quadrant that you draw on paper to convince me I can make millions in no time.

Ok let me go dig up more interesting sites and in the mean time listen to that trash album Anfield Devotee suggested ... it's all noisy and ear shattering but in my state of mind, it's pretty cool music!

Ani, I love the design on your site. As I am no comp whiz like you, can you give me a few simple pointers how you got new templates and all. Went to widgetbox, feedjit and all but got totally lost in there.

Thanks ahead bud!

akuani said...

akuani said...

Mohan, thanks dude :)) will give it a look see ...

so whatcha plans for turning 37 gracefully in just over a week?

Mohan said...

I got that wrong. me turned a very immature(so say the bastards here) 37 on 16:06 and don't remember anything of that day!(coming to think of it even yesterday). Swhing...long life booze and babae..now where the hell's me spare liver(something like the spare tyre LLT mentioned! and certainly not gonna let the other species try and change it for me!)
Have fun, M.

akuani said...

Oh hell it means you're 2 months older - hmmm NOPE still don't qualify for 'abang' status all (but eeks you be a Gemini and same b'day as me kid sis)

Well if the liver's gone (and no spare in sight), ain't worth bothering to change it is my guess becoz when it acts up, you'll be too much of a bother anyways!!!

I've seen a few people say adios after a battle with that. Ain't a pretty sight anyhows! (how's that for a slice of reality check)

Mohan said...

hey .ani,
I know. chill...drinkin's not as bad as you imagine, besides quite sure some babe is gonna kill me first!!
You take care.
M.
