About me

Full Name : I.Dinesh Kumar
Location : Chennai,India

I am a 19year old pursuing Undergraduation in Electrical & Electronic engg in chennai,India. I have been blogging since May 2008.My main interests are in Mobiles,gadgets and technology.I am also a contest freak.

A blog is basically an online journal wherein you can digitally pen down your thoughts, ideas, opinions and practically anything that you want people to read. Blogs come in different styles, formats, and settings, depending on the preference of the user. Many blogging sites, offer built in features such as hyperlink, straight texts, pictures etc. Some blogging sites, even allow you to put video and mp3’s on your blogs.

Instead of writing texts, some bloggers choose to make their blogs more audio friendly, by using spoken word entries. This is called audio blogging.

Basically a blog contains these features:

title- which allows you to label your post
body- this is the content of your post
trackback- other sites can be linked back to your blog

permanent link- every article that you write has a URL
comments- this allow readers to post comments on your blog.

One of the advantages of blogging, is that it is made of only a few templates. Unlike, other websites that is made up of numerous individual pages. This make it easier for blog users to create new pages, because it already has a fix setting that include: slots for title, body of the post, category, etc.

This is especially useful for first time users, since they can start blogging right away. They can chose from a number of templates that blogging websites provide.

Anyone who wants to start a blog can do so by becoming a member of a blogging website of their choice. Once they’ve become members, they automatically become a part of that particular blogging community. They can browse through other bloggers pages, and link them back to their own blogs. They can also make comments on other members’ blogs.

Every web blogger knows the potential of MyBloglog in the internet. It is so powerful that even Techcrunch keeps this widget in their website. You can use this widget to track the recent visitors of your blog or website who are members of this community (of course only if they sign in and visit your blog, their visit is recorded).

After the acquisition of this community by Yahoo, there were no major updates in this community but the number of registered users have increased to three fold(roughly). Now, Yahoo is struggling for its existence against Microsoft's deal and Google's offer. It has focused on increasing its reputation in internet from its child sites like mybloglog, flickr, yahoo buzz,... And here we will tell about Mybloglog's latest updates that are going to be released in 2 weeks, its name is "New with me" and here are its details.

In short, it is a feature through which all the activities that you did in some selected sites (like bebo, flickr,...) are visible in your profile with your permission. With the given user name, they crawl the rss feeds of selected sites and put that data in your profile.

The presently selected site are

- Bebo
- Deli.cio.us
- Digg
- Flickr
- Jumpcut
- Last.FM
- MyBlogLog
- Netflix
- Stumbleupon
- Twitter
- Yahoo Answers
- Yelp
- YouTube
- Upcoming

Privacy : You no need to worry about your privacy, because Yahoo take cares of your privacy for example, the images that are tagged as private in flickr, will not appear in your mybloglog profile [:)]If you are uncomfortable with any of your updates being aggregated by New with Me, simply go to the Services tab of your Profile and remove your screen name.

There is a small grey box [x] that will allow you to clear an item for your New with Me page. It will also remove this item from appearing anywhere on MyBlogLog.com. Thus, you can remove any item from your new with me page.

I think this is a good feature as it will allow your users to know more about you and you can also show your other interests other than just blogging; it will help you to get more friends and of course users also to your site/blog.
