ILU WORDPRESS

Yesterday when I was reading the comments about the glitch in wordpress something struck me.

There is no second thought about it, that wordpress is the best site for people who love to create- write, paint and share it with people who have time enough to read them and express their opinion. Sometimes become the very best friends.

Now, why is WordPress my favorite website?

I have tried MSN and Blogspot before. A gang of psychopaths from my real life troll me everywhere, i have with great disappointment discovered that they are very expert in google based things. My cellphone is saying the same thing because it is run by gmail based operating system. That is why I have stopped using internet on that, do it only to use the gmail account, answer mails and write mails.

MSN’s website’s problem was they did not allow you to moderate the comments or block someone (This feature will be very useful in wordpress- blocking someone, we can block a person from our reader I know that, but can we block that person from reading us? like FB allows, I dont think so!). So in MSN these trolls drove me nuts, they used to write ravings in my blogs, from up to down, especially three insane women and a man, i still remember their names seven years later. Finally I had enough and moved on to blogspot, there an uglier surprise was waiting for me. For two or more years I kept signing in, writing the blogs, everything was normal, then I realized one fine day that I was signing into some fake page created by those trolls, they were totally controlling my websites i was their creative slave. One fine day all the sites with email id became out of access.

After that I totally stopped using blogspot and google based things, use only that one gmail account and of-course its search engine. That is enough for me! For the rest of my life.

Facebook- well it is downright boring but if you want to brazenly publicize, you can use it. That is what I am about to do with it. There everyone writes, no one reads, forming new friends of my wavelength? Will see.

Why I love wordpress?

1. In all these years I have not been bothered by trolls. I dont believe they have not been trying, its just they cant penetrate the safety wall here i believe.

2. The best type of people are connected with wordpress, I have made so many friends here. True friends :)

3. I love its hassle free design, it is so easy to share your works the way you want, and it gets loaded so easily.

4. After MSN wordpress gave me the courage to keep writing and painting, sharing it with others, and gave me the wing and occupation to pass my too many hours! I cant imagine my days without wordpress.

Thank you wordpress pixies :)

and my wordpress friends- love you love you love you and love you.

beautiful life

beautiful life
you play with me
like a wild child
sometimes you love me
hug me tight
I could inhale
your sweet baby scent
and feel your chubby arms
around my neck.
then sometimes you go wild
drive me crazy
as you run around
wrecking havoc.
Sometimes you throw tantrum
destroying everything
that you can lay your hands on
at the end of that fit
you again become normal.
I wait and watch.

my recent posts and wordpress blogs

AD

In case you are not familiar with this theme of WordPress and are looking for my latest posts please check the column on right side of the post.

4 and 9 are private blogs, shared with close friends, if you have energy to read them let me know, i will send you invitation, let me know through a comment here… because wp doesnot sends me any message when you click the button that it supplies.

—————————————————————————————————————-

MY ONLY FB ACCOUNT FOR FRIENDS

and in case you dont already know, i have joined facebook this february and my address there is facebook.com/sharmishtha.basu.50 – my doors are always open for friends. if you feel something is missing there, that is your invitation has been mishandled or something weirder do let me know!!!

A couple of days ago, a friend of mine almost gave me a heart attack when he told me that he was seeing my facebook account, and congratulated me on my kid… then he said that that account had the same address as mine only there was a slash in place of dot. So, please- my FB profile contains a very common photo of mine, a lot of you might have seen it with my blogs, in signatures.

To make things more clearer, I will use this single header for mydomainpvt for a while, this is the picture i have shared in FB too, I am not much familliar with FB lingo, not yet, so I used this picture there too, and it comes up with my profile picture, gravatar picture like headers of wordpress i guess.

Please do confirm with me if you have any confusion…

—————————————————————————————————————-

THOSE WHO HONOUR ME WITH AWARDS-

YOUR KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY WORKS AS AN INSPIRATION, A WIND BENEATH MY CREATIVE WINGS BUT I FEEL REALLY SHY TO SHOW OFF AWARDS IN MY BLOGS, I FEEL SELF CONSCIOUS AND VAIN. SO EVEN THOUGH EVERY ONE OF THEM MAKES ME FEEL LIKE A QUEEN PLEASE FORGIVE MY INCAPABILITY TO SHOW THEM OFF!

GOD BLESS YOUR NOBLE, SWEET SOUL THAT LOVES THIS HUMBLE BLOG AND ITS CONTENTS. YOUR COMMENTS ARE MY GREATEST REWARDS AND YOUR FRIENDSHIP TRUE TREASURE.

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH MY SWEET FRIENDS FOR HONOURING.

THERE IS ANOTHER THING TOO- A LOT OF MY FRIENDS REBLOG MY WORKS, THAT REALLY HONOURS THOSE SILLY WORKS GREATLY, BUT, FOR SOME MYSTERIOUS REASON (OR MY LIMITED CAPACITY INTERNET CONNECTION), IN PAST WHEN I TRIED TO REBLOG THE WORKS OF MY FRIENDS MY INTERNET CONNECTION BECAME REALLY, MISERABLY SLOW. SO, I KNOW YOU DONT DO IT FOR PUBLICITY, HOPING FOR RETURN OF THE KINDNESS BUT IT MAKES ME FEEL A LITTLE SAD, GUILTY THAT I CANT RETURN YOUR PRICELESS FAVOR.

HOPE YOU CAN FORGIVE IT!

is wordpress going through that phase again?

My wordpress blogs are back to that “phase” again. It all started with showing a very irritating page “bip boop boop” every time i tried to edit something or add something new.

Now, it took me half an hour to open charles’s blog, which usually opens within a second.

Are they working on their annual repairing the site program?

Grrr

Hope it will be over soon!

JULY JOYS 13.7.14
====================

drooping leaves
making you feel
that you lost it
first touch of rain
and the leaves perk up
glistening with health
that is joy.

all day you tried
to wrap her body
around the stick
it stubbornly refused
morning came
there it was all wrapped up
reaching upwards.

BRAGBOX N TIPS 18.8.14

Hey…WILL YOU HELP ME ON SORTING OUT 100 OR SO POEMS/WORKS THAT I CAN COMPILE IN ONE/MULTIPLE EBOOKS?

No, you wont have to pick 100 of my works that you wont mind buying as an ebook, only few will be enough, as they will vary from one friend to the other i will get my hundred.

Apart from that, can you suggest how many should be compiled together for one book and how much will I name as price?

So, if you love to read stories you can join, if you want to write stories and get them tested by “no nonsense” writers join, if you love to spend your extra money with poor, hungry writers join!

SMASHWORDS BULLETIN

After initial testing and downloading their guideline to get the ebook ready for being published I gave up! It is impossible to follow that guideline. I am not an expert in formatting such things.

Spending 40 dollars to get a book published… well its a tough game for me. So if I can manage to handle their formatting demands then it is ok or else sorry for me. :)

in case you are in smashwords, or you are interested to take a peek, here is my interview-

POTHI.COM

Now, the bad news at the end, I had an account in another ebook publishing site, pothi.com, they used to accept word files and convert them into ebooks without any fuss. Unfortunately back then I was not planning on ebooks, right now, I am quite certain to publish my poems as ebooks and see if they can win hearts…. so I tried to create a new account with them, they told me that they have sent me the password in my email id, heaven only knows which email id, because i did not get it.

Adamantly I went back and requested them for a new password- they again repeated the same message, password sent to your email id… ha and ha.

finally i contacted their support desk.

you know the answer…

LATEST NEWS:

Well their support desk responded and asked me to open a gmail account and open an account through that… will think about that.

To warmongers:

How many corpses
how many homes
turned into rubbles
will make you weep?
How many orphans
how many dead children
will make your soul cringe?
for the part you played
in these wars?
Why dont you just feel ashamed
when you count the bribe
paid by weapon dealers
and warmongers
and other nefarious creatures
that bay for blood
for one profit or other?
Why dont you just put a bullet
through your too monstrous heart
and spare the innocents
who will fall to satiate your lust?

Have a wonderful weekend and time ahead my dear friends, wish you a fabulous time ahead.
