Technology has opened up many fora to interact with written words. To such an extent that the print media, physical books’  existence feel threatened for the sake of ease as with the example cited above.  But the things are not exactly same with the books-e-books as with stairs-elevator case. The feel of book and reading through a physical book  and even the smell of book has no match for its digital sibling – E books.

Timing is Important

In the last week, I have published it post midnight and the results were quiet good. For the last two days I changed my time of publishing to evening and the results varied.

May be the idea of publishing the post in the evening is not good. I shall revert back to my old-timing, when I can reach out to largest number of People.
