New Home

After two years of blogging on Indiatimes O3, I have decided to move my home. Again! Its so typical of me, my desire to live a nomadic life that I shift my virtual home as often as I would like to shift my real one.


On a more serious note, my reasons for moving also include my frustation at O3. Most of the times the server is overloaded, basic features don't work properly, its low on user friendliness and the battle with spam is alomst always lost. Another concern is security.

Inspite of all this, I stayed there because there was a community but I have realized its not worth the effort. This first post and the next few others will probably be cross-posted on O3.

My first impression here is - This doesn't feel like home! This is probably a reaction when one moves to a new place and it feels unfamiliar to be there. I am still figuring out how the functions work, while the numerous options have left me in bit of a tizzy (and I am not that technologically challenged! ).

Anyway the journey of this zephyr will continue here.

hey..welcome to blogspot...
i am the first one to welcome u here...
i have been blogging simultaneously on both o3 and blogspot, and no doubt this place is more relaible...the only advantage at o3 is the huge community there and the number of responses u get...

Hi N :)

Congrats on building a new home.. wish u another fabulous innings here.

Good to see u on blogger.. no i don't hv a blog here yet.. but the good thing is that I can access this page at work..

And I would be a faithful visitor for sure :D:D

thoda sa inconvenient hai abhi for the readers too.. u need to work on the layout.. and also allow for anonymous comments for ppl who don't hv a google account. u can also secure it thru the picture recognition system for posting comments similar to o3.

maine kabhi nahin kiya par bata raha hoon :D:D

m sure u would do a good job of it in due course.. take ur time.. hv a pleasant stay here and take care :)
