How to develop your voice on your blog posts.


Developing your voice means stamping your own style in all your blog posts, blog comments, Twitter messages and in all other social media sites where you leave your digital foot print.

Ah, yes, by looking at your digital foot prints, people should say who it belong to.
If you want to develop your voice as a blogger or even an article writer (yes, blog posting and article writing are different) the first thing you should decide is how you are going to show your emotions (appreciation, criticism, sarcasm), how decently but firmly you are going to convey them and start writing your text based on that.

You will not come to say firmly, ‘this is my style’ after publishing a few of your blog posts. You will find it out only after several months (provided you have been active), after having tried out various styles.

Invariably, you will change your style after becoming serious in blogging and start reading others’ blog posts of which some may vibrate with you positively. You will find yourself nodding your head as you read such blog posts. You will remember who the points conveyed in such blog posts get etched in your memory even after a couple of weeks.

Therefore, start finding blogs of your niche, identify blogs that echo your emotions and views and openly leave your feedback. Mention them in your blog posts, direct people to what you liked and what helped you in some way.

Now, you are beginning to slowly developing your voice.

Of course it is needless to say that in order to develop your voice is to practice writing as frequently as possible. To be precise, 3 blog posts a week is really idea. Anything more might be tedious and anything less is not a search engine and reader friendly habits.
Write about anything but always try to adhere to your style; the more you practice writing, the better your ability to express your ideas will become.

It is not always easy to find the right words to express what’s in your mind. Building vocabulary is a must for all kinds of writers-isn’t it? Reading English classics would certainly help anyone bent on fine tuning their writing skill.

I used to take a day off every week and read my favorite authors that include O.Henry, Somerset Maugham, Oscar Wilde, Ayn Rand and Arthur Conon Doyle (the creator of Sherlock Holmes). After reading them, my vocabulary bank would be replenished and I would pick up new ideas to begin my blog post.

Finally, the development of your own style will depend on how you are developed spiritually. I firmly believe that one’s life takes shape depending on the level of spiritual development, on the life and experiences you have had that made you what you are today.

As a blogger, I never fail to include my own opinions and experiences into the blog posts and articles I write with 100% honesty. I am of the opinion that it is the only way that would establish your own voice and also distinguish you from the so called ‘run-of-the-mill’ blog writers.

How to delete Temporary Internet files from your system?

This short guide to remove temporary internet files is for Windows XP users. I am sure the majority of you still use Windows XP OS in spite of the presence of Windows 7 and 8 OS.

It is quite often to see your system slowing down which means sites in your browser take longer time to load than usual. It implies that it is time to do a bit of cleaning your PC with inbuilt computer cleaning tools that are easy to use.

The first task for you to do is delete all the temporary internet files that get stored on your PC as you surf the web. All of the files are stored in a folder that your PC no longer uses. It is safe to delete them in spite of a few warnings that you see while doing the actual cleaning.

Deleting these temporary files is a quick and easy task and it can save your disk space and keep your PC clean of digital dust.

How to delete the “Temporary Internet Files”?
  1. Click on Start button and then click on Run.
  2. In the dialog box you see on the next screen, type %Temp% and click OK.
  3. A folder full of files and folders will appear.
  4. Press CTRL plus A to select all the content of the “temp folder” and press the ‘delete’ button on your keyboard.
  5. Confirm your willingness to delete by clicking on the ‘YES’ button.
  6. Invariably, you will see a warning message that reads “there are hidden files…” Don’t be alarmed. Just say “OK
  7. During this process, almost at the end of it, you are likely to see another error message that would say, “Error Deleting File or Folder”. This means that the files mentioned may be in use currently. Just click ‘OK’. Now, close all the open programs and repeat the steps. Your system is now cleaned.
  8. Remember to ‘empty’ your ‘Recycle’ bin finally.

 Ah, you just did a great job as a "computer maid".

Which is the most stylish guitar?

Long before my son bought his first Gibson guitar, he picked a few Gibson fans in his college campus who then led him to an online club of Gibson fans. He read polls, poured through reviews, worked part time to save enough to buy his dream acoustic electric guitar.

He was smart enough to wait for notification of gibson j-45 for sale and thus saved substantial money to buy a portable amplifier also. I was really happy for him though he initially got me worried when he told me that even the lowest priced Gibson electric guitar would cost around $2000.

He was determined to lay his hands on a trendy and stylish guitar and I heartily appreciated his steely resolve. He fell for the look of it rather than its performance. On my part, I gave him money to buy a sleek case for his new guitar.


Yesterday, he left for a short holiday and took his guitar and amplifier. He glowed when he packed his music accessories.
