My one year experience of Blogging

Today I am going to share my one year experience of blogging, this has been a good experience for me. From the day I launched this blog I have never felt bored about blogging, it always gives me new hope and ambition with which I am lasting as a blogger for almost one year. In its inception I was not pretty sure about its growing but gradually I started loving it. 
clearly remembered the day I published my first post on windows named it as How to make your PC perform faster and it got traffics just after one or two days of publication, when I used to show viewers reading my post I felt myself the happiest one. As a blogger you might know that at the very beginning we all try and eagerly wait to index our post on Google search, if Google shows our post then we feel some kind of relaxation in us. The same was happened to me, before making a technology startup blog I used to write topics on current news on my blog giving it a name Wisdomgraffiti, but I did not succeed with it, Google indexed my post after more than five pages of Google search, in that time I was really disappointed so I changed my blogging topic to how to tutorials and technology review, though it was not stand like a magical lamp for me but I can say it was better than the before. Now I was able to index my post easily on Google. Google indexed my post on the first page of Google search.

It is true that people are not satisfied easily, they always want more, if one gets a coin of bronze he tries to make it silver, and then tries to make it gold, similarly after successfully indexing my post on Google and receiving good numbers of traffic for my blog, I somehow felt of making money from it so now I want Google AdSense to approve me and other pay per click advertisements, it was very easy for me to get approved by chitika and infolinks but it was tough to getting AdSense approval. I always cleared the 1st step of AdSense approval but failed to pass the second step, it brought down my hope of making money out of blogging. But I did not leave posting new articles in my blog, after 8 months of my blogging, one day I reapplied for AdSense program, but this time I was not disappointed, yes I was approved by Google AdSense. Now I was able to show AdSense ads on my blog as millions of bloggers do. It brought a professional look to my blog, I started getting more traffics. It again boosts me up for blogging, now I am running my blog very nicely, I write 3 or 4 posts per week and get more than 20000 of visitors per month with a good alexa ranking. I have recently got five new guest blogger, they write for my blog. That’s all about my blogging experience. Thanks

iPhone trade in program launched Great Apple

 iPhone trade-in program launched to spur upgrades

Apple Inc. has started an iPhone trade-in program in its stores, letting owners sell older handsets back to the company in exchange for credit toward a new model. 

Apple’s U.S. retail outlets are now accepting devices, said Amy Bessette, a spokeswoman for Apple. The initiative is starting just before the next iPhone’s debut on Sept. 10.

While Gazelle Inc. and wireless carriers such as Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc. already buy used handsets, this is the first program run by the iPhone maker at its stores. By buying old phones, they’re aiming to spur new device sales by helping cover the cost of buying the latest smartphone. Apple is teaming up with Brightstar Corp., a mobile-phone distributor, to run the operation, people with knowledge of the plans said in June.

“IPhones hold great value so Apple Retail Stores are launching a new program to assist customers who wish to bring in their previous-generation iPhone for reuse or recycling,” Bessette said. “In addition to helping support the environment, customers will be able to receive a credit for their returned phone that they can use toward the purchase of a new iPhone.”

The money paid back depends on the condition of the phone. An iPhone 5 with 64 gigabytes of memory can fetch $350 through Gazelle’s website, while an iPhone 3GS may receive only $10. The most that any iPhone will sell for at an Apple Store is $280. Previously Apple accepted trade-ins online via mail.

Replacement Phones
Without a subsidy from a carrier, an iPhone 5 costs $649 to $849 depending on the amount of memory, compared with $199 to $399 with a wireless contract.

iPhones collected through these programs are often refurbished and used as replacements for ones that break, or resold in emerging markets.

Apple sold 31.2 million units of the iPhone in the latest quarter, compared with 26 million a year earlier. Apple shares have declined 31 percent from a record in September, weighed down by investor concerns that the company’s era of rapid growth, fueled by the 2007 debut of the iPhone, may be over.
