There are certain useful features which make nRelate a better chioce.

Check out the review followed by a surprising conversation between two debaters in the comments section :D

My Music

My Music!

My guitar allows me to hear my inner voice. Among other specific activities, this too serves as a bridge between me and my inner world

My Photography!

Yup! I like to take some shots in my leisure time. I am specially in love with Macroshots as they are more... ummm... "detailed" ( hanjee! I like to observe things in great detail :D )

The one on the left is just one example, hit "Have a look" to see some more.

We all love change right?

We all love change right?

Yup! As we progress in our lives, we try to make things better and better for people around us. Changing anything does not mean that you completely change everything but keeping previous good elements and eliminating or improving on flawed ones.
So here comes my newly "dressed up" blog. :D

Shah Jo Risalo - Intro

Shah Jo Risalo - Intro

I've decided to narrate the series of poems of Shah jo Risalo written by Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai (SALB). The book consists of 29 poems in total. Every poem has been given a title of "Sur" meaning "a musical note". Every sur or note is then divided into different stories (daastaan), like first poem is divided into 3 stories. Some stories have concluding...

Imagination versus speed of light!

The only problem in conversion of matter into energy is the speed of light. According to Einstien:

"We can convert any object into energy, if we throw it or move it with the square of speed of light."

Related post widgets - nRelate is better than Linkwithin

Yup! I recently came to know about this useful and better (than Linkwithin) widget.

What is "Related posts" widget?
Related posts widget allows your blog readers to "randomly browse" related content posted on your blog. As the name suggests, the widget picks up some random related posts and shows them in a very nice way.

Why should I use this "Related post" widget?
Simple answer. To increase the time a visitor spends on your blog. It allows a blogger to "showcase" what kind of similar content he/she has posted till now.
Technical answer: To decrease the bounce rate of your blog.

Any other alternatives?
One can find many related post widgets on the internet. Title of the post (plain text) version, thumbnail plus text version, horizontal, vertical, under the post, sidebar versions etc. Some are simple and easy to use and some are complex and difficult to implement on the blogs. Two of them i've used are Linkwithin(Lw) and nRelate(nR) and found better than the available widgets.

As some of you might have seen, I was using the Linkwithin widget previously on this blog as it was the best and easy-to-use related post widgets available at that time, but due to more controls and options nRelate offers, I immediately switched to nRelate widget.

Benefits of using nR?
- Allows maximum number of posts that can be used: 10 [better than Lw]
- Has sleek and attractive design. [better than Lw]
- Has horizontal arrangement of posts
- Is very easy to use and install.
- Has more controls than other related blog widgets. [better than Lw]
- Uses thumbnails of your posts (to attract visitors)
- Gives information on visitors using the widget. [better than Lw]
- Uses direct URL of your posts in the widget, rather than routing the visitor to its own website first and then forwarding to your posts (which LW does) [better than Lw]

Sign-up is free and takes under a minute or so and you can see your widget under your blog posts. You can install the widget without signing-up but your widget will be limited to 3 posts only.

Seems like i'm marketing nRelate :D

Well that's the power of blogging. I share what i like. On a side-note, word-o-mouth spreads like a wildfire and it is not bia.... lets save this topic for some other day...

    nice widget review :D

  2. Lol... Yeah i should've used the word "review" in the title :D
    Glad you liked it

  3. I loved over all layout of your blog and the way you designed the title of the blog.

    You have inspired me to think about replacing linkwithin with nrelate. But it may take time.

  4. Thanks Ibn Hanif for the appreciation. I've done some good hard work in customizing the template and I am still doing it.

    I've designed the header image in photoshop using mix and match colors of background of the blog. It's actually a thought bubble you can say.

  6. I signed up with nrelate, and then nothing happened. Was there something I was supposed to do which I didn't?

    Both my blogs (RR and Khurramsdesk) show up in my nrelate account, but I dont see any related posts displayed on either of the blogs

  7. 1- There are two types:
    i) nRelate on the main page + every post
    ii) nRelate only on the main page

    Which option did you select?

    2- Did you go through that blogger permission page to allow this widget edit your template? (page where blogger asks you to select a specific blog, through drop-down menu, to embed the widget)

    3- Did you place the "nRelate widget" under your body of your post? (in layout option of blogger i.e settings > template layout)

  8. Amanda / nRelate says:

    Thanks for the review and supporting nRelate! We are always around to answer any questions you may have :) Have a Happy Holidays!

  9. Thanks Amanda :)
    The product itself is solid, causing to generate positive reviews.

    I recently checked out the custom skins nRelate is offering for this widget. But I'd still go with the original one.

  10. Finally nRelate's functional on my blog webpage too! 

    Its just that I had to delete disqus for that :-/How did you like the ' The Beautiful Mind' btw ?

  11. Hi baji,

    That's a great news but...


    Disqus is more ccccoooooool man! Why both of them aren't going together!? :o

    And your nR is showing just 3 random posts :s Use it to the fullest baji, your blog has got around 150 posts, showcase them by customizing your nRelate to at-least 5-8 posts.

  12. Yup, I liked "The Beautiful Mind" = 9.5/10

    I recently saw "The Real Steel" of Hugh Jackman = 7.5/10

  13. I noticed (was notified you must say :P) that you've changed the name of your blog.

    Well-done! It shows that you've.... errr.... achieved something?

  14. Disqus is definitely cool but only when it shows the correct number of comments under the post instead of the stubborn 0 !

    My blog's theme is keen  to promote my decisiveness by limiting my options. Disqus is a luxury , nRelate is a necessity. So I decided to kept the later.

    I have deliberately set it to three. Let me explain why.Have you ever been to Islamabad  ? Did you notice the large sign-borads above almost every main road across the city ; the sign-broads that read : Lahore xyz Km , Peshawar abc Km , Rawalpindi mno Km
    It seems the city is more keen to divert you away than to let you stay.
    Similarly , a large number of links under a post divert the readers away before s/he can leave a feedback. 

    So in my opinion , three posts are good enough. :)

  15. Cars 1 was interesting = 7/10 ( Agreed ! Animated movies can teach more than real ones , )

  16. Yes I've been blog-trotting notifying bloggers about my new address. 

    Yes ! I have achieved a pseudo-name ! ;-)

  17. It'll let your readers browse your blog more.

    Google the word "bounce-rate" :D

  18. your comment regarding cars 1 got deleted.

    Probably due to "http"

  19. Bounce rate is indicative of the time a visitor spends on a webpage. The lower it is, the better. I know that. 

    I prefer keeping a small number still :D

  20. URL based comments get deleted automatically ? Bad strategy by disqus!

    But I'm gonna miss its grace and subtlety.   

  21. Hey I noticed you've closed the poll : I Should Work More On . I was trying to vote for : My Music, Guitar video clips !

  22. your first comment did get approved btw :/

    it blocks "http" i guess and not the link starting with www


  23. ji theeek :p

    Yar I was overwhelmed with the response you know, you reminded me it's still there :D

  24. Tell me, how many of your friends have seen this video ?

  25. Mystery scale post = 100+ views
    Mystery Scale vid = 56 views

  26. No 'izat afza' comments under your video on youtube. Means none of your friends have seen this yet ! :p

  27. :p in my bhasha:
    a=vid views
    p= post views
    b= bounced

    p = a + b

    x is independent of a.

    (it's not necessary that every view/impression/click on my vid will have a comment too)

  28. Algebra is YOUR bhasha ! I didn't realize I was talking to a reincarnated version of  Al-Khwarizmi himself !  No doubt you think highly enough of yourself to put your name after personalities such a Rumi  and Iqbal ! 

    p=a+b <--- point very well-conveyed ; but, ever heard of self-evident statement ? ;p

    Let me re-explain my point in Pythagoras' language i.e, theorems. 
    If your real-life friends had watched this video ---> they would have given you some theek thaak kism ka feed-back.
    Had you received some theek-thaak kism ka feedback --->you wouldn't have been still so proud of it .
    If you weren't proud of it---> it wouldn't be sitting atop your blog
    Its still sitting atop your blog --- > mean you haven't received some theek thak kism ka feed-back yet !

    A diplomatic commentator is no commentator , remember?! ;p 

  29. hahhaha!!


    Its sitting atop my blog :p



  30. hahah :D

    What's the name of my blog? :D

    You believe or not, Me=You, read it aloud. The philosophy was kept in mind while naming it. Don't worry :D

    "put after your name after...." hahaha... seriously baji I can't stop laughing. You know what? I like to throw stone in the stagnant water and observe the result :D

  31. Your first statement is an "assumption" baji. :D

    If your real-life friends had watched this video ---> they would have given you some theek thaak kism ka feed-back
    theek thaak kism ka feed-back can be "any kind of feedback, in any form" (not the comments only)

  32. Your second statement is an "assumption" baji. :D :D

    Had you received some theek-thaak kism ka feedback --->you wouldn't have been still so proud of it.

    where does this show i'm proud? :D oh in next statement? acha :D :D neechey se parhna chayee tha mjhee yaar! damn! :p

  33. Your third statement is an "assumption" baji. :D :D :D

    If you weren't proud of it---> it wouldn't be sitting atop your blog

    "My Music" (yup! combined) resides in the featured posts widget, the "whole section". You haven't clicked "Have a look" at the end i guess :D (the 2nd vid does have comments... khush? :D :D)

    AND... Shah Jo Risalo is next... "fully" updated with links. (combine the count of all comments in this category please)

    SSooo... "other things" (han bhaee with comments :D) are also sitting atop my blog

  34. Its still sitting atop your blog --- > mean you haven't received some theek thak kism ka feed-back yet !

    ^ same answer
    Shah Jo Risalo has received ttkk feedback "in the form of comments" :p

    but heeyy! it's still sitting atop my blog :D

    Too bad that i forgot to go into the coding thing again and remove it...


  35. your last assumption is sssoo wrong that I've decided to showcase a post full of the comments in the slider :p

  36. *looks at the long train of comments and decides to do what people do when they can't think of anything better to do : Like all comments and go away* :D 

    In simple words , its cool that you can play guitar but improve your skill. Its still in an infant stage. ( Yes , I like giving unsolicited suggestions ; didn't pseudo-name myself as Baji for nothing !  )

    'Infant' reminds me of your question on my recent blog. What subjects am I studying this year ? Eye , EarNose&Throat ( Its one subject ) , Community medicine and espeshaal pathology . Any interest in them ;-)

  37. "improve your skill" :D

    yeah I'm agreeing with you on this one :p

    Keep your suggestions coming.

    "Infant" :p

    Acha. ok. no but i googled the word "espeshaal" though

  38. :D but where did the last two comments disappear -_-

  40. web design bangalore says:

  41. Danish Siddiqueuk says:

    in nR can create posts this is the main advantage. cheap ink cartridges

  42. Found new interests ? abducted by aliens ? Or simply lost in ghum-e-rozgaar ?

  43. Hiii!

    Err... All of them are correct. I was transferred to Oa and awarded a "green" skin with some magical and "imaginative" powers. I am part of a team called "The Guardians of Universe" now.

    So yes, I found new interests, was abducted by aliens and can't find zarya-e-ma'ash on earth now :/

  44. I hope world ain't ending on 21st december then ;)
