Recap - Jan 2012

Recap - Jan 2012 @ Hema’s Vantagadi:

Recap:
I started blogging this month with a change which made me to come up with 22 posts out of which 1 is just a link.

Change:
I peeped into Jan2012 Events and bookmarked each one into my bookmark toolbar. Once in a day, I used to check this folder and was eager to participate in the events. But I couldn’t make it up for few.

Lessons Learnt:
  • Different varieties of sweet
  • Pageviews, friends will increase when we participate in events. Hence make it an habit to participate in maximum of events.
  • Remove word verification during group events
Highlights:
Total Pageviews in January - 4095
Highest Pageview: 23rd January - 671
Adsense: Removed adsense this month in my blog
Google friends list: Increased from 30s to 56 as on 31st Jan.
Google Readers: increased from 30s to 91 as on 31st Jan. (subjected to vary based on the deletion of bookmarks.)
Template: Template was changed on 30th Jan. New template is FooDeluxe from Premiumbloggertemplates.
HTML Work: Made the pages not to show and edited the links to each page manually.
Blog Name: Changed my blog name from Hema's Blog to Hema's Vantagadi in last week of January 2012

Non Event Post - 1:
