Blog Engage Blogging Contest 2014 – Participated once again!


After struggling like hell with my hosting and then stopping the spam bots on my blog which were eating all of my hosting, I am finally relaxed as everything’s been sorted out now. Thank to always helping friend Bashir Ahmed. I will be writing what happened in the last month of 2013 and first week of 2014 with my blog. But prior to that, I would like to mention the reason I am not being regular with my blog. It’s just that I am at the edge of setting up a career and busy so much with stuff like college project, internship and all last year college work everyone has to do.

But now my blog and hosting (yes I changed the host and even put the Bluehost review down) is all good. And I am updating it, just published an article a couple of hours ago. After publishing the article, I was reading blogs I follow and I just saw Blog Engage blogging contest 2014. It just reminded me my year 2012 with blog engage.

I don’t know if that potential is still left in me or if I will be able to find time to promote my contest entry like I used to do. But I wanted to be a part of this, so  I just decided to participate. I was thinking to write on something on my blog for a while, I just opened editor on Blog Engage and poured all the thoughts I had in that editor  in the form of words.

For new readers, here’s what Blog Engage is all about: Blog Engage: Right Place for Blogger

Now, I would like to talk about what my contest entry is all about. It actually is a question to all my friends and readers because I am unclear of few things in blogging. I am glad few people are agree with me in that, as I read their comments. So, I would ask you all to have a look at my contest entry, read it , and honestly tell me what you think about the topic. Of course , all social shares like +1, Facebook like and share, tweets etc. are welcome (actually, I need em to win..shhh).

Here’s the link to my contest entry:
