Spams are the biggest bugs of any blog. Bloggers generally are compelled to deal with spam comments and even if the comment moderation is on, spammers find a way out of nowhere to insert trashy links to your blog’s comments. And many a times, it has happened to me that even plugins like Askimet sometimes filter decent comments into the spam category. Spams are like malwares in wordpress blogs, you need to give extra time in fixing them up. So, if you need to sort out the comments and separate spam, you may need to spend a good 1 hour doing that. Is that worth it? Of course not! So, are you thinking of adding a registration form to your blog so that readers register before commenting? Well you should think it over because people generally don’t choose to comment if you they need to register. People even don’t bother to comment by logging in via Facebook or Twitter, that is prevalent in many sites these days. So, the best option is to add Captcha to comment forms. … [Read more...] about Recaptcha Plugin- Fighting Spam comments & Spam Bot Registration
The lovin spoonful
There’s something skeptical to taglines. For once it seems like it is what that makes a brand, but sometimes it feels like just another laughing stock. “Just do it”, “I’m lovin’ it”, “Eat fresh”, “Because you’re worth it”, “Gives you wings”; you can tell the brand names in the blink of an eye as far as these are considered. But what is it that separates the taglines of these massive giants from yours? Two things – You hear them very often, and they sure are well designed for the same. From a business perspective, your company’s tagline is your elevator pitch to your audience. Elevator pitch is a succinct and persuasive sales pitch when you usually approach a VC/Angel for an investment. The shorter, memorable and effective conveying of your elevator pitch, more likely you’ll receive an interest from the VC, if not investment. Same goes here; Taglines are handy to draw quick attention … [Read more...] about Step-By-Step Guide To Write An Effective Website Tagline
“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” – Bachel Zoe It doesn’t matter whether you are a freelancer, web designer, stay at home mom or a college student – if you are looking to improve your lifestyle, spend time in upgrading your fashion. Being normal is always boring and the joy of dressing is really an art. Want to become more stylish? There are two ways: either hire a professional fashion designer or do it yourself. Unless you are a celebrity or born with a golden spoon, you can’t afford most fashion designers. I know no one wants to start with a designer because most of us simply can’t afford, so that leaves with the choice of DIY (Do It Yourself) fashions. So if you are looking for effortless ways and ideas to become more fashionable, I highly recommend you to start following the best fashion blogs in India which I’m going to cover in this post. They not only help you learn the best ways to wear what you own … [Read more...] about 12 Best Fashion Blogs In India Worth Following
You know the drill by now: It’s time for a new cooking recipe! This year, I sat back and watched bookahnerk prepare it as he always does this one dish. We had honey-mustard glazed chili-duck with potato wedges and field salad. Ingredients for the duck:sambal oelek Ingredients for the side dishes: You can either buy the sambal oelek or make it yourself. We usually get it from an Asian supermarket, but as we didn’t have any left, I made it myself this time. We have self-made ground chilis (you can just buy them if you like :p). I used some of these, added salt and white wine vinegar. I can’t tell you how much vinegar I used because the bottle slipped and yeah well… I let it sit there for a couple of hours and it had the texture of pulp later on. Very important for this recipe: You do not pre-heat the oven! It has to be cold. Prepare the glaze: You need about one spoon of honey and one spoon of mustard (medium hot) for each duck breast. Add a bit of salt and … [Read more...] about Bookahnerk’s honey-mustard glazed chili-duck
Let's talk about pre-launch hype info for a MMORPG, RPG, or really any type of game. When a game is still some ways from launching, developers tend to start getting into the news cycles by releasing tidbits about lore. Whether it's a backstory about one of the races, a profile on how a certain enemy came to be, the history of a dungeon, or even a novel about the game world as a whole, there always seems to be some emphasis on lore. Personally, I really don't respond to it. Do you? I'm more of a mechanics guy myself. I want to know about the features in an upcoming game. What does the leveling gameplay look like? How will my character progress? Tell me about the social mechanics, or the developers' vision for how some feature -- big or small -- lends itself to creating fun. Lore is important. Don't get me wrong. Boring or even downright bad stories and lore can make a game immediately feel cheap, so there has to be a minimum viable offering there. But I wouldn't rank lore anywhere … [Read more...] about Pre-Launch – Do You Really Care About Lore?
