Rishabh Sood's Blog Contest: iPod Nano 8 GB

Rishabh Sood - Blogging Tips, SEO Tricks, Tips, Link Building Tricks Much More! is a fairly new blog, started on July 26, 2008, but with great potential. The founder, Rishabh, is a 15-year-old boy from New Delhi, India. In his blog he shares blogging tips, such as how to increase readers, and increase traffic at your blog.

I posted a screenshot of his blog. I really like the layout, it is black background, with hints of orange in the header and footer. The ads are not disruptive nor are they annoying, i.e. they don't make loud sounds when you run your mouse over the ad. The blog is a little text-heavy for my taste, I think that adding more photos will draw in more readers, because of the visuals. The entries are easy to read, and follow along, as well they are descriptive. The blogger posts moderately, which is a pro. I find that some bloggers are obsessively blogging, in that their entries are too frequent, and other bloggers hardly post at all. However, Rishabh's blog is at a happy-medium, and you can check out which dates he has posted through a handy calendar on the right-hand-side of the scroll bar. I think that is an awesome feature!

My favourite entries would be How to use Google images to get traffic, and How to quickly rewrite your articles using Google. These are great entries, because it makes one's blog more accessible.

Rishabh is hosting an awesome contest for a 8GB iPod Nano. He will even be shipping it to your home free of cost.


1.) Post a review of his blog on your website or blog (must be at least one month old and active). The review should be of around 150-500 words.

2.) Email him the link where you have posted a review ( hotantivirus [at] )

3.) Make a comment on his blog post

On 1st Oct. I will be declaring the best review and the winner will be contacted by email.

You can also Subscribe to his RSS feed for more updates.

Good luck everyone!

Anthropology Field Trip to Blackfoot Crossing

Photo 1: A picture of the entrance to Blackfoot Crossing from CBC.

Monday was super fun. We went on a field trip to Blackfoot Crossing. I learned a lot studying the artifacts, as well as listening and reading blurbs under the displays. I was very temped to take pictures but they were not permitted. :( It has been awhile since I have been outside of Calgary...and being in the urual setting was super refreshing. The ride there was about 1 1/2 hours and getting back was sightly longer, because it was rush hour.

FiddyP Contest: The Next Hot Thing!

Fig. 1: Pictures of iMaingo iPod speakers from FiddyP. My camera just broke, hence I am not able to post any pictures. Nevertheless, that's exactly what my prize looks like!

In my previous post (here), I wrote about a FiddyP contest pertaining to iPod stereos. I encouraged people to enter this contest.

I can't believe that I did! If I didn't, I would have bought them from here: I received the iPod stereos in the mail today! They are awesome, and they sound great! :)

FiddyP contests are defiantly worth entering! (It's your loss if you don't. More contest prizes for me then.) I can't wait until the next one.

A big thank you to Andy Bailey!

Must Read: Sushi For One?

Picture1. Sushi for One? (September 2007) is witty novel about the life of Lex, a single Christian, by Camy Tang. Picture 2. Only Uni (Feburary 2008) by Camy Tang...which I have yet to read!

I've been busy with midterms in university, hence I haven't written a personal entry or watched much TV (because of the Writer's Strike). But, since that has ended, and I have reading week starting on the 14th...I may end up being a couch potato or, I may start on Camy Tang's new book! Yay!

I finished reading Sushi For One? (September 2007), by Camy Tang over the holidays (Picture1). I loved the book (truly I do). It's a awesome girly novel about the lives of single Christians --filled with witty humour. I hate to admit this...but I swear she was writing about my life! Oh, oh, the drama--an explanation will be made later. An excellent summary of Sushi For One? can be found here. I cannot wait to read Only Uni (February 2008) (Picture2.) and other books in her new series.

Maybe I'm being a dork, but I can't believe that Camy actually wrote a comment on my page. :) Thanks Camy! Keep up writing awesome lit!
