  3. Thanks a lot Roshmi, for your valuable opinion. and ya, thanks for appreciating my blog. I guess I am done with Antarctica blogging for now, unless I come across some interesting news from Antarctica. I will try to popularise the blog by following your advice, though that does seem to be a lot of hard work.

  5. @ Indian Pundit: Thanks! :D

    I too dislike the term 'God fearing'... what does it mean anyway... ??? How can 'God' be feared... and why... ??? Makes no sense to me... at all!

  7. @ Abhijeet: Glad to know you found my suggestions useful.

    Your blog is very interesting as well as informative. Plus... given the topic... it should have a wide readership.

    You can link it up with other similar blogs and/or ask your team mates to post as 'guest bloggers'.

    Even if all of you were @ Antarctica at the same time and went thru similar experience(s)... everyone's perception and view point will differ.

    This may add another dimension...


    P.S. And no... its not much of a hard work... nothing compared to living in Antarctica!!! :D :D :D

  13. well thanks. and no, contrary to popular perception, the readership is not good as you can make out by the number of hits, though they are from various parts of the world. People prefer general blogs rather than niche blogs.

  14. @ Subhayan: Thanks for those kind and encouraging words! :D

  15. @ Wandering soul: Thanks! And yes... you'll all have to wait and see... what my 100th post is all about. After all... 'sabr ka phal meetha hota hai'... !!!

  16. @ Sobhit: Thanks! Glad you liked this post!

    Well... 99 points for the 99th post. Sounds like a good idea... but then, following 99 points in life is a little too much... !!! What say! Hence, following the 'KISS principle'... I prefered to 'keep it short and simple'.


    P.S. A 'pariah' is 'one that is despised and rejected'.

  17. @ Abhijeet: Yes! But niche blogs too have a dedicated readership.

    And travelogues are quite popular as well!

    So... try registering in different sites and networks and see the difference...
