Hello Readers, First of all sorry for the delay of the posts. I have been kind of busy. Recently i have tried an stock investment experiment with very low level basic knowledge. So in this post, I am going to share you about the process and what i did in it. so let’s get into how to get started on stock share market.
Before diving in let me give you few definitions
As per wikipedia:
A stock market, equity market or share market is the aggregation of buyers and sellers (a loose network of economic transactions, not a physical facility or discrete entity) of stocks (also called shares), which represent ownership claims on businesses; these may include securities listed on a public stock exchange as well as those only traded privately.
To make it simple
As you can see, if you would have invested 2782RS on FEB 2012 now you would have got 31750.25. That is like above 400% growth and you would have got that much return.
This is the very simple explanation. There are lot of other advanced terms involved like how to choose company, and where to invest, when to invest sort of stuffs. This is just for simple explanation. Even i also not so much aware of those factors.
How i get started?
So there are lot of formalities involved in buying stocks from exchanges. We need some kind of stock broker to do buying/selling stock for us.
So This is too much detail for me, So i decided to go with this website called ZERODHA where stock meets technology.
This makes the process smooth simple and clean. I have created account with 500RS registeration fee and you can get started on investing. So all those mainstream process will taken care of zerodha. You can read more information about this in their website or their customer service center.
What I am actually doing now?
Even though i have a account, i have no idea of how to do stock research and came up with best solution nor have a time to do it. So i decided to try out this app which is also a part of Zerodha.
As you see they are all have prediction models with calculated returns and designed to reduce the risk of loss. To know more please get into website and read more about it.
There are small fee involved if you are using the smallcase.
So i have started like few weeks before, i don’t want to write this post long and make you bored. After few months, there will be follow up post on this topic about my money stats on these platforms. Hope you find this post useful. If you like this post, please subscribe and let us know your thoughts in comments.
Recently we have been going through few trip and planning few. That’s the reason for no update in the blog. Sorry for kept you waiting. So In this post, I am just going to help you with few little hacks that get’s you better deal and reduce your expense.
Let’s start with some obvious tricks
Clear your cache or incognito Mode
Whenever you are checking out the hotels or flight deals. Always clear your cache. The simple reason behind this is the price fluctuates, if you keep visiting the same deal again and again. Obviously, we won’t make the booking at first time. So it’s always better to to your clear cache or even better if you go into incognito mode until you conform the deals.
Always check price comparison websites to check the hotels pricing to find out which site offers you a cheap deal.
If you even further want to reduce the expense for your stay and want to have some private home stay or stay with some fun people. You can always go for airbnb.
Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 65,000 cities and 191 countries. And with world-class customer service and a growing community of users, Airbnb is the easiest way for people to monetize their extra space and showcase it to an audience of millions.
If you are planning in the middle of week it will even reduce your ticket prices depends upon the place and season you go in.
Finally these are the few things we went through while we planning for a trip. Hope you find this post useful if you are planning for a trip now r for in future. And for more useful random post subscribe us and let us know your thoughts in comments.
Have you wondered most of the ads you see in Google are somewhat related to the keyword you searched before? Ever tried to find out the reason behind it? In case you are not, the reason is pretty simple.
Google tracks your search activities, location your youtube history and more. If you are not already aware of it. This might be a little shock for you. However, there are still few things you can do to avoid this tracking.
how to avoid google tracking your activities:
You might be already signed in with your google account either in mobile or desktop/laptop.
There you can see the list of options which using your activity and data. Let’s see them one by one.
You can just go ahead and disable it to avoid tracking of your search activities and search history.
Disable to not to track your location using the GPS and automatically setting up your routine. This feature is handy, however, it’s your personal preference to keep it or not. I am personally using it enabled.
It will synchronize your contact with Google and your devices. I personally use it enabled to avoid contacts and important data lose when i change phones.
Voice & Audio Activity
You can go ahead and disable it. Most of us not using this feature. Even if you use, you don’t want the stupid questions you asked to get tracked.
YouTube Search History
YouTube Watch History
You can enable or disable this both options based on your need. If you want your youtube homepage always gives result related to the search you make enable it otherwise disable it.
If you don’t want to disable it entirely, you can still go to manage activity and remove particular activity from it.
Over the recent years, Internet blogging got so many eyes over on it. Because of the potential success, you can earn from on it. Most of the people start blogging after they went over some successful blogs. Ironically, most successful blogs teach you how to create money-making blogs.
So I decided to write this post to mainly explain the pain points and behind the scenes of blogging. Which is not told by the successful blogs you come across. My perception and views might be little different if you have an opinion about it.Feel free to discuss in the comments.
1.Blogging is not easy
Blogging is not an easy job to do unless you are a great writer with full of passion in it or you have crazy ideas to attract attention. The reason because is that, most of the internet content is well created already. So if you have a plan to make dive into the deep ocean, come up with unique ideas rather than following the same stupid successful blog series which tells you how to make successful blogs.
2.No Passion, No money
If you got so much excited seeing other bloggers earning income and decided to jump in with the dream of making millions. Stop it right there. You need a passion for creating blog rather than only making money out of it. The more you passionate about the blog, the more you work hard and create great content for it. So do not jump in untill you are really really ready.
3.Successful blogs are history
Most of the successful blogs are early adopters before even you get to know about blogging. They have high winning probability than all others who are coming behind. They will be still successful even if they don’t make anything unique other than their way into success. Since they are all history. And technically, they have the huge advantage over us.
4.Don’t be a sheep
Do you want to stand out? Then stop being a sheep. Stop following things blindly and start thinking how to use them wisely. Most of the blogs run from the curiosity of early bloggers. So know who to follow and what to do by all yourself by analyzing and researching lot of things.
5.You can’t make money overnight
You never can make money out of overnight using a blog. Blogging takes weeks, months or even years to give the result like a tree you plant. So stop expecting money from it. keep doing your job. If you are really good at it, then you don’t even need to move your thumb to make money out of it. It will automatically happen.
Why I wrote this?
I have seen many people on the internet thinking that they can make a hugely successful blog just by following some of the successful blogs. Getting inspired is no wrong but don’t make a stupid out of yourself.
Everything needs a time and hard work. So if you are really into blogging then jump on it. Put other things aside and keep writing great content that will be useful for so many people.
And you can be definitely successful one day.
I put it aside a lot of technical stuff involved in blogging when am writing this. Because if you don’t possess those things mentioned above. All other remaining things are useless to consider.

Nowadays, you see lot of your friends share some funny stupid post from some random app such as

Similar stuff like this. You also might get interested and click on it to know what you going to get on it. In the application website, you might see something like this in the above pictures asking you to connect with your facebook to see the result.
Ever wondered why you have to login with your facebook there? or Ever seen the authorization page before you click continue. If you not sure what is the authorization page take a look below.
So this what you will see after you click the button, most of the time you click continue without actually looking on it. This page will clearly display what that app receives from your profile. For example, in this case, it takes my
Public profile (whatever the things i have in my facebook shared as public)

So in case you have given continue without seeing it, these apps track this much of my information.
Similarly few apps will get your timeline posting permission. Once you granted the permission, it can post the content automatically on your post without any restrictions.
I hope now you know how those random posts get’s shows up on your timeline.

As I have mentioned in the previous post. This post is going to be step by step guide to show how to improve pagespeed of your blog.
1.Improve your server speed
Choose your hosting service provider efficiently. Make sure you choose a good server with great speed to make the response quicker. I will keep this simple since it’s a factor which you don’t have much control. So don’t go for the cheap hosting servers with slowness.
2.Compress your images:
Most of the blogs have a good amount of images. Even though you might think they take very less space. When comes to speed they became a great influencing factor in it.
How to compress your images?
You can compress your images and scale it manually using design tools or else you can do as I did for this blog. I have done a quick search on image compressing plugins on WordPress and found this amazing plugin which will take care of your image compression problem.
It’s very simple. Install it and go to the plugin setting page. Once you installed, it will automatically smush the new images as you upload. For old images, you should give bulk smash in the setting page.
As simple as that, congratulations you have made all your images compressed and optimized.
Most of the plugins and themes you have will have style file with extension .css. In most cases, it might be a difficult job to find out all the files and compress it, if you are a non-techy person. However, there are few places where you can go and make the change all by yourself.
There are plugins to compress your css which will be latered cover on. In case you have minimal theme as like me, you can go ahead to Appearence->Editor->style.css.
Now copy the entire code, go ahead to https://cssminifier.com/ paste the code get the compressed result and paste back in your style.css. You are done.
It’s very straightforward go ahead install it and choose the options on the checkboxes according to your need.
Before performing all these steps:
After performing the above steps:
Quite a bit of improvement. But it can be even more improved. Let’s go on.
Caching (pronounced “cashing”) is the process of storing data in a cache. A cacheis a temporary storage area. For example, the files you automatically request by looking at a Web page are stored on your hard disk in a cache subdirectory under the directory for your browser
By enabling caching will avoid request often and serve the stored files. It gives a great amount of improvement in your performance since requests are getting avoided at the second time.
Bot perform great. While Super Cache has the more advanced function which might not require all the time. I stick with minimal version plugin wp fast cache.
So just go ahead install the plugin and the settings are self-explanatory. You can easily configure it.
After I done caching:
There you go. You have got the awesome page speed result for yourself. Go through each steps and do the same. Google has an awesome suggestion list for you so it’s very easy to track where the problem is. Feel free to let your thoughts or doubts in the comment and subscribe our blog for more random tech post.
What else can be done?
Which i am not ready to implement now. So avoided it for now. That are the only two things which i can improve more on this blog.
I had decided to give a try on improving my page speed to improve my search engine ranking and made a step by step progress to improve my blog page speed. In case you wonder what is page speed?
Page speed is often confused with “site speed,” which is actually the page speed for a sample of page views on a site. Page speed can be described in either “page load time” (the time it takes to fully display the content on a specific page) or “time to the first byte” (how long it takes for your browser to receive the first byte of information from the web server).
No matter how you measure it, a faster page speed is better. Many people have found that faster pages both rank and convert better.
Google will measure both your mobile and desktop performance and indicates the improvement. If you are in green zone, you are well and good. If you are in red, you are in deep trouble. The scores are out of 100 which makes it easier to understand where your blog stands.
You can check your blog mobile load time here quickly and can get a full report on it.
Before optimizing my blog:
As you can see from Needs work to Good with the few hours of time spent in the optimization. The steps are pretty simple and easy to follow and take very less effort.
If you are really interested in knowing the optimization part step by step keep waiting for the second part of the post which will be soon updated and let us know your thoughts in comments on how you want that post to be. Subscribe this blog for regular updates in your inbox.
