Long Time No See

Dear reader,

This is not an article promising that I am back to blogging nor is this an apology. It has been roughly 4 years since I last wrote here. A lot has changed for you, me and the web. I am just checking in.

More like an open letter to anyone still reading.

Upon seeing this letter either in your inbox or your rss reader, some of your might not remember when you subscribed. Some of you will leave and you are welcome to do so, not all relationships are meant to last forever and thanks for the time we shared.

However if you still decide to stick along for the rest of the journey, please say hello so I know you exist.

Since the last time we talked, I have been part-of and exited out of a start-up, traveled around the world, and found out more about who I am and what I want.

Anyone who told me that college will be the best days of my life either lied or is living a boring life. I don’t see how a life with all the freedom and time and resources and the luxury to work on anything that I set my mind to can be worse than sticking to a time schedule with papers and tests to write. I still hang out with my good friends way more than I ever did while I was in college.

Life has been good. Thankfully.

Work wise, I have had the opportunity to work with a few big clients. My WordPress development skills have skyrocketed. I laugh at how I always tried to do things without a plugin thinking that it was somehow better (it’s not), and edited WordPress core files (please don’t do it!).

I have been moderately successful with Affiliate Marketing and attended Affiliate Summit in New York last year. That was a dream come true on multiple levels. You will be reading more about Affiliate Marketing here if you stick along.

Thank you for supporting me so far. What have you been up to?

Hello, I am Arun Basil Lal. Thank you for reading!

I am a WordPress product developer and creator of Image Attributes Pro. I am passionate about solving problems and travelling the world.

Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!

Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.
