Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
Do anyone know the joy i had experienced, when i saw these words…… Hmm…Even i can’t tell it through words ! Till today, WordPress was just a dream to me.. But now, I am On wordpress ! hooooorey…. !
The meaning of the Word ‘Rajeel'(My name, Dude) in Arabic is ‘Traveller’. Now i think that it is true, because I’m still continuing my blogging journey through WordPress too. You know that i had temporarily stopped blogging on last January. On those days, when i was away from blogging, i had deep desire and dreams on my mind that after my exams and on vacation days, I will take blogging a bit more seriously and will move to WP. As a part of it, when my vacation started, i searched for a good and affordable webhosting to move to WP. I had a very small budget and the choices that were available were Hostgator, WPwebhost and justhost. I was a bit confused about choosing the best out of it. Eventhough i heard about Sitegrounds which provided hosting for $10 and WP compatible, i refused it due to the lack of reviews and bad response from forums. I also read that WPwebhost doesn’t have much experience in web hosting and it can’t manage even 1000 visitors per day.
Then the rest of 2 choices were justHost and HostGator. Out of it, i found justhost within the Top 3 positions on every webhosting ranking tables and also got a 50% discount coupon for it. Whereas, HostGator, eventhough used widly by many of my friends, cost More than double the cost of just host. Also justhost provide ‘anytime money back Guarentee’ and many other features including $250 advertising credits and all. I thought that it could be a nice and cheap vehicle for my journey, with good mileage and resell value.
I didn’t dare to think once more and decided to Sign Up with them and let me tell, I found their coustomer care as very very helpful. I’m telling this because, as completly a newbie to this i was very much helped and guided by them. My dad had previosly told me not to link my credit card to internet and so i used paypal for the purchase. I didn’t want to link card in the merchant agreement and i contacted their customer care, and they advised me to sent money to their paypal account manually and proceeded the transaction. From their they have been doing great services, as far as i’m concerned.
As a newbie, customizing the functions, themes and widgets etc are still a hard job for me, but my present theme, which is so easy to use, really helps me in it. The theme i’m now using is the Swift theme Designed by Satish Gandham, one of my friend. It’s a great theme like thesis and all. The reason that everyone tells for using thesis are that it is fast loading and easy to use. Swift, which is also a free theme also includes all these facilities and it is easily customizable. Eventhough i’m not much satisfied with it’s design, I”m really satisfied with it’s perfomance. I think that it can really act as a ‘torch light’ during my journey through the Highway of WordPress, Which is Dark. I prefer this theme to all newbies to WP and is used by about 2 million peoples now !
Before having a long gap in last 3 months, my blog had about 300+ visits daily and after the gap it decreased to <100. Now i’m having a Average of 100+ visitors, in this week and i want to built it up to the old level and more afterwards. Now, my aim for present month is to regain the lost visitors and to make a minimum of 300+ visitors per day.
Friends, Now, what i want to ask you is to give me more encouragement and support from your side so that i can make my blog more helpful and useful for you too. i want your love, just as you gave me before, to continue my journey through the ‘Dark highway’ of WordPress…
