Lost & Found

For some reason I moved from blogger to wordpress & later from wordpress to blogger with a new identity.
I had my old posts back in wordpress and I wanted them all back safe & sound.
I googled a lot to find a tool called "blog2blog". Happy as one would be , I used to import all my posts even not minding the restriction of 100 posts per day.
The sad part of this whole thing was there was no means where I could migrate my comments.
A post without a comment is like a cake without an icing! (Chocolate cake with icing..wow)
Anyways coming to the point, I stumbled upon this wonderful utility only today wherein you can migrate the whole wordpress posts, including your comments&labels to blogger!
Wow .. and there my lost comments were found !!
Check this link for the tool!

How did this simple tool miss my eye until today .. Hmm..interesting..

The Cream and Scum of Blogging

"This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 1, the first edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton"

As soon as I think of this topic all I could picture are two tiny people talking or rather arguing around me.Today they will do the talking in my blog

Blog Devil(BD) : What a topic to discuss! Rats anyday blogging is a scum. And blog a Ton- what a name! These people are job less..

(Me:You are being watched buddy!)

Blog Angel(BA): Hey why do you tell that way, if not for blogging you would never be alive today


BD: Oh there she comes !! the sweet little Angel with her frilly frock..

(Me: I dont see any frills in the frock.. or Do I ?!)

BA:You can call me all you want , but I’m happy that I’m part of the blog world.. I have many friends to connect with..

(Me:Yup she is right)

BD:Friends !! HaHa.you mean. the ones who come to your blog & drop a line so that they get a reader .. ??They are not friends my dear they are selfish..

(Me: May be ??!)

BA: That is not being selfish that's acquaintance.. & you communicate with them and develop your friendship

(Me:There you go)

BD:Oh blah blah… see Daisyblue.. Always addicted and look how she is neglecting her work that earns her bread..

(Me: Oops hope my boss doesn't hear this)

BA:That is not true .. Daisyblue has revived her blog after a long break..it energises her.. and her blog layout full of flowers wow!.. it does refresh me :-) !

(Me: ***giggling***)

BD:Huh and look how much time it takes to load in a browser.& how many people are trying to open it and waste the company’s bandwidth

(Me: Huh ?!)

BA: What does it matter when compared to the N number of movies people download over the net, Mr.Devil?

(Me: HeHeHe..clever girl)

BD:May be nothing, but people like daisyblue are just aloof. They are the ones who do not know how to mingle when they are single.. How does that sound my dear?!

(Me:Who said I'm single you freak ?!)

BA:Daisyblue is not Shilpa Shetty to shout that she is ready to mingle. Blogging is a way to express her feelings in words. That doesn't mean that these people sit quietly in a corner wherever they go

(Me:Way to go)

BD: You may not believe me but a study says so. It says that all lonely, depressed and passive people blog. They have a whole new character outside the blogosphere .

(Me:Split personality ..!?too much fiction )

BA:There is a proverb, "A person who doesn't know to dance, tells that the dais is crooked" you are the same & its a no use talking to an empty head so I bid you goodbye !

BD:I dont need your Good bye to end my day. I'm off from this stupid blogosphere..

Wow..that was such war of words in the middle of my blog! I'm happy to have the blog angel with me.But too much of the angel will eventually bore me out.

Whom to you like ? BA or the BD ? Pour in your thoughts
