Inaugural post!

So I finally decided to take the plunge into the delirious and effervescent blogosphere after overcoming a serious inertia – the dreaded "writer's block". I coined the word exertia for the blog – standing for the opposite of inertia – a continuous state of change.

I wish to credit the people/groups who made this journey possible:

  • Rajesh Jain's blog Emergic, of which I have been an avid reader.
  • Several books which I referred to, especially one worthy of note: "We Blog: Publishing Online with Weblogs"
    by Paul Bausch, Matthew Haughey, Meg Hourihan
  • The enthusiastic team at WordPress for hosting such a wonderful free service. Keep it up (no pun intended)!

I evaluated various blogging services and short-listed two: Blogger and WordPress. Both of them had their own strong points but finally I tilted in favor of WordPress especially because of the categorization feature and the in-built stats. Of the two, I feel Blogger is good for beginners but WordPress really comes into its own with its feature-rich package. Here's a very interesting Blog software comparison chart which should help you in making up your mind.

  1. The public sector is the section of the economy involved with providing different
    government services. The makeup of the public-sector varies by nation, but
    in the majority of nations the public-sector comprises
    such solutions as the armed forces, police, public transportation and treatment of community roads,
    public education, as well as healthcare and those working for the government it
    self, for example elected authorities. The public-sector may provide
    services that a non-payer can’t be omitted from (such as
    road lighting), solutions which help all of society rather than only the individual who
    uses the support.

    Companies and businesses which are not part of the
    public sector are a part of the private-sector. The private-sector is made
    up of the business market, which will be intended
    to make a profit for the owners of the enterprise, along
    with the voluntary market, which includes non-profit companies.

  5. Wow, I’m impressed with your preparation to begin blogging. I’ve been blogging a couple of months, and came to it in an entirely different way. But, I’m loving it. I’m sure you will do well, have lots of fun, and be a blessing to other people. You have been to me, already.
