An eventful day for a blogger is one in which he/ she gets to be a part of the blogging community in person and receives some delightful insights into the world of blogging.
Yesterday was such a day, when bloggers from all over India came together at Mumbai for the Blog Now Live Forever (#BNLF) event, organized by Indiblogger at LaLit hotel in Andheri. The event boasted of an impressive line-up of speakers including the famous digital marketer Jeff Bullas and rock musician cum commercial pilot cum broadcaster Bruce Dickinson!
‘Hatey Khori’ ceremony is an event of special significance in Bengali culture. Held during the auspicious day of Saraswati Puja, a festival day dedicated to learning and education, ‘Hatey Khori’marks a child’s initiation into reading and writing.

Then what exactly does being unreasonable amount to? Does it mean throwing your weight around, picking up unnecessary tantrums or arguments? Hardly so, as impulsive actions without any a solid objective does not get you anywhere.
Over the last few days, I had been deliberating upon moving this blog to a self-hosted platform with wordpress.org. Having read about the merits of a self-hosted blog over a wordpress.com blog, I still wondered if it was worthwhile to switch over.
Like most others, I started blogging as a hobby to Scribble and Scrawl my musings.
