From Tumblr to WordPress

Tumblr-Wordpress

Even though WordPress is almost the default choice when one thinks of blogging, I chose Tumblr to launch my blog.

Partly because of the hype it was generating and partly because of the customisation it lent.

I was fortunate to generate lot of traction with my blog soon after launch – tweets, reblogs, share, etc.

However, I realised that I was not able to access details of the above which other Tumblr blog owners could.

Oh that horrible day when I created a ticket on this for Tumblr.

Soon after, my blog went offline for days altogether.

When it finally came up after continuous pleading to Tumblr guys, I noticed that all the data on sharing etc was lost!

I again approached their tech / customer support but in vain.

After a month, I finally gave up.

I have now realised that while Tumblr might be a great platform when it comes to functionality, it is terrible from a support perspective.

After a few months of launching my blog, I am finally relaunching it on WordPress.

Looking for the same love and respect that you guys showed me earlier.

So long.

Hello World!

Hello_World

“Not another blog”, I hear you saying.

When everybody and his brother has a blog, why should I be left behind. 🙂

Jokes apart, my motive behind this blog is not to air my high-headed opinion about everything or be a self-styled critic.

Through this blog, I intend to marry my love for technology (digital / analogue, software / hardware) with my recent OCD to write.

I keep running into tech that, I believe, needs to be talked about, for good or for bad reasons.

This blog would channel that need.

Then, there are some aspects of this world that might not have a direct relation to technology but could not have existed had this world not been technologified (whoa, did I just create a new word).

I would try and do justice to those aspects as well.

And I must mention that this blog has no connection, not even remotely, to any organisation or company by the same name.

As for me, I am a ScrumMaster working as a Project Manager with a tech company based out of New Delhi, India.

I have spent the better part of my life tinkering all kinds of things from circuit boards to bike engines to software.

So stay tuned in for good (or maybe terrible, depending on your taste) stuff.
