The step child

I always felt that I am not doing justice to this blog. Since I shifted base to Wordpress, this has become just a link storage place. I don't see much traffic here and hardly any comments.

I started off from this blog so guess will post here once in a while. All those who are familiar with my writings on WP and all those who are looking for some new reading material please go through the links and critique my work.
I know it is a little tedious to open new links etc but then one cant help it , can one :)?

I will definitely come here often and give it the love it needs. High time the step child behaviour is trashed .
hoping to see more readers here

Happy chidren's day
