About This Blog

This blog is a continuation of my blog Tee Emm’s Window to Pakistan that used to be at http://www.blogspot.com/pakistan – one of the first blogs to originate out of Pakistan with the first post made around June 2001. Not a fan of frequent changes specially when it comes to blogs, domain names and URLs, I waited very patiently and lived with the blogger service for my blog. However, the following frustrations finally made me take the ‘change decision’ and move the place here on wordpress:

  • After being acquired by Google, the Pyra labs (original founders of blogger and blogspot) did not made any quantum improvement in the services they offered. Many blogging tools appearing afterwards did a better job. Even the current ‘blogger beta’ thing is stretching out for a long time now. While like others I have a lot of respect for blogger.com to enable early bloggers, I wish them the best while I move away.
  • The blogspot ban in Pakistan took a heavy toll on the readership of the blog. Despite that fact that proxies and other very good blogspot ban undoers like pkblogs.com exist, I believe that a blog that is primarily on the issues of Pakistan with its intended audience again in Pakistan, it is perfect to ensure 100% accessibility to the blog by all the potential readers. The blogspot ban keeps on coming and going affecting the readership of the blog severly.
  • As most of us would now testify, wordpress has a far more superior interface, extensibility and aesthetics than Google’s blogger.com.
  • Finally, I see the latest attempt of blogger.com putting up a translucent ad-strip at the bottom of the blogs hosted at blogspot.com as a bit of an overkill. With the blue blogger strip on top promoting blogger and blogspot, the google ads in the blogs template, the latest move just makes my content lose more of its space. Yes, I know free comes at a cost but if that gets too costly, the thing doesn’t remain free anymore.

    Занятно пишете, жизненно. Все-таки, для того, чтобы делать по-настоящему интересный блог, нужно не только сообщать о чем-то, но и делать это в интересной форме:)

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d certainly
    appreciate it.

    True, there are comedians that cuss a lot, but you got to earn that right before
    you do that. Think of this as a way to document
    your improvements over time, and eventually it will be a very
    effective PR tool. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could take a magic
    pill and have a perfect relationship.
