Welcome to my world where you will find celebrity gossip, recipes, baby and health info, relationship advice, tips and tricks, blogging, make money online, my views on various topics, some very interesting pieces of my own personal life and kids. Also has updates about my two year old adorable angel, Alisha. Please, take your time and look around, dont forget to leave me some love :-)
I don't know how my visitors reached from 800 to 1,595 to 2,000 to 4,587!! Its almost reaching 5,000 visitors and that's not really bad, ha? But the most confusing thing is that how come between a one day span, my visitors have increased quite rapidly.. like from 2,000 to 4,587. Do you think its fishy, possible or incorrect stats? Please let me know.. I am used to traffic as high as this but that was before..
Its true that i used to have about 2,000 and more visitors before the month of may, and it was possible because i was blogging from July 2007. The very disheartening decrease happened when i wasn't active for almost 40 days, month of may.. my visitors dropped to just 200 something:(.. A few posts and activeness on forums, communities etc got me back to square one and now this big big increase.. but hopefully it should continue this way, if there is nothing fishy:)

I have noticed a drop of pr on most of the active blogs, yet Yogi's weblog maintains that pr4 even now and i wonder what, how come??.. i then realized that exceptionally written posts and beautiful pictures gaze at me within the pages on his blog and that's why i consider his blog as comes as one of the best:) Adding to that a simple, neat look always impresses!
You must take a look at the the largest fountain in Dubai picture post.. amazing pictures, and more than i admire the pictures i admire the fact that you did a great job in getting those images out to us, yogi.. a proud fellow Indian, i am:)
Yeah, that's true, my friend is from India.. the place where i belong too! not to forget to mention that he also has posts on India.. some more interesting posts on his blog are that of wallpapers, windows shortcuts and tips/tricks, stories, about the Olympics 2008 etc etc.. there is lots, lots, and lots more..
So now you know what is takes to maintain that pr? even i couldn't maintain this pr4 blog of mine, and i learnt my lesson from yogi:)

So the Olympics are finally over, and i was too involved with other things than to watch the games... I have no idea how many medals we(India) really won or how many we missed, as there are too many interferences in my life these days... though i was looking forward to watching the Olympics, and my intentions before the games were to enjoy the whole of it... but right now ive got a big headache that i want to clear off first and maybe next 4 years will be bring me that much happiness and peace i long for, to be able to enjoy myself watching the games or rather doing anything that i desire... lack of interest, it seems, is the reason i gave it a miss.. i just pray that the lord gives me that much strength to overcome such obstacles am facing, and let there be happiness surrounding my world.
Seems am beginning to pour out some of my personal frustrations;) i know this is not the place where i should be doing so as everybody prefers a happy blogger.. but.. sometimes darkness does happen in a persons life, looks like I'm victim this time. I feel lonely, lost, confused and depressed and i feel anger conquering me to an uncontrollable extent.. and though there is one very strong reason behind my emotions, but i hope... and pray, its nothing, just a passing phase... Do you feel this way too and when?
But am one happy person with my kids and i enjoy myself thoroughly when am blogging and i know my emotions wont lessen your acknowledgement of me even in the tiniest way... so i just want to tell you all, that i love you all and am grateful for the love and support you showered on me:)

The Internet is incomplete without web hosts, and users often worry their head out searching for a good web hosting service. Even a sites performance is entirely based on their hosts service, for a dead host will naturally cause your site optimization problems. A good one will obviously prove worthy..
I found one of the best web host rating sites where the best hosts are rated accordingly and there is a rated, top 10 web hosting service list which will be very beneficial to those in need of the best host services. And also if you need a new host, because the directly consists of the best hosting services on the web.
Their rating system of web hosts is based on customer satisfaction, affordability, reliability, uptime and technical support. The sites directory features complete information on web hosting providers, their web hosting plans, promotional and discount coupons, and unedited reviews by real customers.
The type of hosts the site rates Unix hosting, windows hosting, dedicated hosting, reseller hosting and more. The types of hosting awards 2008 are based on best budget hosting, best blog hosting, forum hosting, multi hosting and more..
Plenty of articles to choose from which proved so helpful to me. I went through most of them and reading the article that tips us about choosing domain names gave me a better insight of how a domain name works and how to choose one.
I now consider a domain name a very important part of a website and when am choosing a new domain name or hosting my website on a web hosting service, i'll prefer to come back here to take some more advice:)

When i saw the amount in my pay pal i wasn't surprised at all, as ive heard from about they late payment from many others and am happy that they're genuine with me also.. hehe..
So anyone looking to join some ways to make money, just join some pretty good paid to review sites..
Baby Alisha turned 22 months on the 18th of August, just two months left for her 2nd birthday! I am so excited, as i've planned a hugeee birthday party for my doll. I have planned to create a fairy land atmosphere, in which shes be wearing a pretty lacy fairy dress and her cake will be of a fairy too. Its all going to be in my favourite color pink, light pink. And am sure everyone invited will enjoy the party tremendously. We had a very huge party for Aryan(my son) on his 1st birthday with around 500 guests attending, seemed like a wedding party:) I guess i wont be inviting 500 people but those that will be invited can be assured an enjoyable time. We'll have dancing, singing, games, feasting etc etc... dancing will be in free style with lots of English hits, as my family loves 'jiving', to the core...hehe
Now, back to the topic.. hehe.. Alisha had shown a great improvement in her English and shes now began to use words like Bike, car, colors, monkey, maggi(aggi), cat and some words she repeats instantly. The funniest word is Babb which she calls her brother because we call him by his nickname, which is bobby:).. so she keeps calling him as "babb, babb".. Shes changed from aao(hindi word for come).. to come and am the happiest mom;)
Shes been very quite fit(touch wood) since her convulsion, in fact shes perfectly fine and what else can a mother want:).. the only thing she prefers nursing to solids, but am hoping she'll soon begin consuming rice, dal and veggies in larger quantities.
Please let me know how you celebrated your child's first birthdays:)

I had been watching the grand opening of the Olympic right since my childhood days, when color televisions weren't even in scene! I remember my father and grandfather cheering the volunteers in such great enthusiasm as each country walked past our Televisions screens. Little did i know what was happening, i could just understand that there was some singing, dancing, some sort of drill display going on.. yet i always watched in amazement.. As the years passed, i missed out on many of the beginnings but when i watched this years opening which was remarkably planned and carried out.. i enjoyed every bit of it and not only me, but Aryan and Alisha, my two kids also watched the spectacular event with our eyes fixed onto the TV screen. Both my cheerful kids were clapping their hands and waving out to the participants on the TV! That was quite cute, made me remember my days :)
India was also there making us proud. But this time.. India watched wondering if they will bring us any medals this year?? Seems as if someone read our minds(the whole of India).. hehe.. and news flashed on TV that.. Abhinav Bindra earned India’s first-ever individual Olympic gold medal, winning the 10-meter air rifle competition on Monday. In India, his parents rejoiced upon hearing the news.

That's Angelina's and brads beautiful babies.. the twins that were the most talked about since the pregnant mother claimed all rumors true. The 3 month twins look extremely adorable and as expected would take over both their parents beautiful and dashing looks. So now the two new members Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline( tough name) have joined the family of 6, that totals up to 8!
The pictures are said to have cost them a whooping $14 million and why do i feel the celebs babies are great way to making some quick $$$$$.. I mean for the couples themselves;) he he
I welcome you to Reflections Of Darkness, a blog which reflects the inner side of the light hearted author Hari.. i guess the others would call you harry! he he.. The moment i landed on the blog i burst out into laughter at the picture posted on the most recent post.. the pic has Lk Advani and Sonia Gandhi posing as the screen pair Akshay kumar and Katrina Kaif from the movie 'singh is king' and its in a pretty filmi style pose!! hahaha.. that's ridiculous.. and funny too.

My computer has grown old and needs to be dumped! that's what i feel for my more than four years computer, my old pal. I had a done a format two months back and then again last month and again, yesterday!! Phew! yet i don't want to part with my old buddy;) Of course its going to be very disheartening when i actually do.. I cant use a screen resolution not more than 800x and its very difficult to view pages. I think most surfers would agree? so i think i have to compromise my old for new and then i can achieve some of my blogging goals:)
The main problem that arises is when am using two browsers at the same time when am surfing my daily sites, and the fact is that its compulsory to use both because some sites are not compatible with either one. I love using both browsers but both have their own pros and cons. Though Mozilla is fabulous to use especially because of its multiple tabs and i love Internet exp's neat and clean look! Using both together makes my PC get too slow. I need some advice and solutions so that i can make my time useful while am still on this computer:) Which browser works best for you???
Sipping on hot coffee can be so relaxing and refreshing, especially after a hectic days work. Its what my husband loves when hes back home from work and i think its what every husband loves doing;) i too love coffee not only to get instant refreshment but also because i love the taste. Being coffee lovers, my husband has decided to scan some the best sites that offer the best branded coffee online or maybe he needed some more knowledge about an instant coffee maker to make life more simpler and faster and look what we found at http://www.alpinevalleycoffee.com an online site that's pretty convincing. I needed this badly as i hate messy coffee and this site has plenty of best deals to prepare the best branded coffee in a jiffy.
Instant and mess free K-Cup coffee or hot chocolate can be easily prepared with no worries about wasting even a single Cup Coffee again, by the single serve brewing technology they offer. K-Cup is a plastic container, similar to a coffee creamer, with a special coffee filter inside containing perfectly ground coffee beans, tea leaves or hot cocoa powder. The K-Cup is air-sealed, locking in freshness and ensuring a long shelf life. When Keurig K-Cups are placed into a Keurig single serve brewer (26), the specially-designed brewer punctures both the K-Cup lid and its bottom where pressurized hot water is forced through the K-Cup. The delicious coffee, tea or hot cocoa is then poured directly into a standard coffee cup which results in delicious mess free coffee!
I noticed so many brands i've never even heard of before like Keurig Coffee which is set on a good deal. If you buy a Keurig Elite B40 Home Brewer today, you will receive 10 packs of free samples of your own choice plus a free shipment! a hot deal, isn't it? Timothy's Coffee, Emeril's Coffee, and Gloria Jean's are some some of the major brands they offer from among others. They are authorized distributor of Keurig products and be an gladly trusted on, for the best instant coffee makers online. Go ahead and surf the site for the other best deals that maybe i haven't set my eyes upon. Its all worth your time. As for me, i'll be saving on some money to gift my husband the best branded maker soon and its paypal accepted too!

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries,
Or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
And the beauty of a woman
With passing years -- only grows!

Have you noticed that mybloglog has got a new green shade look? its gone from green to greener, isn't it? one thing everyone has noticed or its only me.. i was searching for the my recent visitors and there it was right below my profile picture section and above the sites section which i think it should of been below the sites section.. but we would notice it anyway:))
They've made many changes since the time i joined in 2007 and its for the better, now that's it more easier to navigate. of course the changes i liked were that the hot members have increased from 4, to 6, to 8! and many more. I don't like one thing, the fact that they've added the myblolgog action which shows every member's actions on the community! its not acceptable to me and i don't know to how many others, too.. I mean the latest post in okay but not the adding and messaging members action. Agree or not?
Anyway i love their community and am always looking forward to joining new blog communities and in return, want many more members to join mine. so will you join my community at http://www.mybloglog.com/buzz/community/nishas-world/ today? Your are most welcome!:)
