How to blog and how not to comment! September 22, 2006

Posted by sk in Miscellaneous.

I found these two interesting blogs on WordPress. The first one by phoenix (yes, the same “I like guys in orange glasses” phoenix) gives you tips on how to maintain a good blog, while the second one by Lorelle talks about how NOT to comment on comments. Now, do I follow the tips? No, not all of them :-), but nevertheless, they’re both good reads. I’ve also found the book, “The Elements of Style” by Strunk and White very useful, not only for blogging, but also for writing technical reports etc. (even in Latex – of course, the book has nothing to do with the word processor/ typesetter but I thought someone would be happy to hear the word “Latex”)

Oh, and please suggest a good title for this post. Maybe phoenix can help with this. On the topic of phoenix, I’m returning to Phoenix on October 1st after three long months in San Diego.

“…I thought someone would be happy to hear the word “Latex”..”
Today my happiness knows no bounds. I cant express how delighted I am to see this word. I am simply overjoyed. Thanks..

“…Oh, and please suggest a good title for this post. ..”

btw, just a note for sparks team: 

check the new rounded theme on wordpress. It might be good for this blog. I have it on tismarkhan.wordpress.com just for review. Its better than the present them we have in many ways except no provision for header image which means no brahmanandam and no phone numbers.

The color of your blog looks very Zuney! Put our photos in the “About Page”. Fewer people will laugh at us then!
