Tap the Power of Social Blogging with Affimity

Tell a story. Make it true. Make it compelling. Make it relevant.

If you are a writer or a blogger, you would have come across this advice an umpteen number of times.

But, we all know that telling a good story is just not enough, till it reaches the right audience, who are interested in hearing the story. Like artists, we writers and bloggers also tend to be passionate about our work. We want more and more people to see our amazing creations and, if possible, appreciate those. However, attracting the right audience has never been an easy task!

If you are a technology geek, you may be super excited to discover latest technology gadgets. But when you diligently compile information about these gizmos on your blog and share it on your social media profile, you may often get a lukewarm response from your connections. You can’t really blame your friends if they like to indulge more in Bollywood gossips than to understand the nitty-gritty of technology. Similarly, you may also fret when you receive notifications about all sorts of activities from you friends.

So, if you are one of those who thrives on the likes and shares on social media, you need to find out online groups in which the members share similar interests.

Tata Sky Transfer – Creating New Experiences

History has always foxed me. My love – hate relationship with the subject has ranged from levels of extreme boredom while trying to remember the lengthy answers from the school text books, to intense engagement while reading Amar Chitra Katha, while watching historical movies like Sikander, Mughal-E-Azam, The Last Emperor, Gandhi, Braveheart, Gladiator, or while seeing historical monuments and trying to unravel the stories behind them. 

The enigma of forts and palaces never fails to fascinate me. I like to uncover the mystery behind the stones, which having witnessed many a battles, echo the war cries, tell tales of valour, mourn the loss of lives, reek of treachery, and speak about the opulence and the lifestyle of the rulers of the bygone era.

5 Best Websites for buying Office Supplies online in India

 

‘Stationery is the lifeline of any office’

Does this sound like an exaggeration? Think of it. Much like fuel is needed to keep a car running, stationery is needed to keep an office running.

office-supplyWhen you own or manage an office, buying office supplies invariably happens to be one of the most tedious jobs that needs to be done regularly without fail. You certainly would not want to run out of cartridge when you are just about to print an important letter that needs to be urgently dispatched. Likewise, you would not want to feel exasperated when the marker stops working while you are making a presentation to your client, and you don’t find another one handy. Huh!
