A Simple Deed to Make Good Friends and Spread Joy

Do you remember the first comment you ever got? Not the one that came in after emailing all your contacts, but the one that came on its own.

What did you do then?

Obviously, you were excited. The feeling that someone else is listening to what you say, and when you get that for the first time, that’s one of the best moments for any author.

Probably, you followed the link to know more about the author. Google-d the name and even checked out his social media profiles and added him up.

Friends For Ever

First comments are starts of great relationships. Friends come and go, but the first friends you made in school in your early ages always stay, right? You may not see them around anymore, but if you ask yourself, they do have a very special place in you.

The point is: if you give attention to those who are not already getting all the attention, you will get it back too.

And when you do that genuinely and not for the sake of the comment, that’s a key to great long lasting relationships.

When you see a post without any comments, try to leave one, because the happiness your comment gives to the author is beyond measures. It’s like a smile; it doesn’t cost much, but means a lot to the recipient.

I am not advocating that there is no use in commenting on popular blogs. I’m trying to say that the first comments are always special. Just like first love 😉

I hope you do have a first comment story to share. What did you do then?

P.S: Hope you guys are having a great time. I am on my final year of graduation which is why I don’t get much time to write here. I do check my emails and tweet often, if you need me anytime.

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.


  1. Great little post buddy with a good message 🙂 You are right about those days when we get that precious little first comment. Mostly it would have come from your genuine well wisher and motivator.

    Some of my commenters from the first week of blog launch are still good online friends 🙂

    That’s a great and very kind suggestion Arun. Bravo.
    What I do is put all my faithful commenters’ links
    in a page called Special -my weblog name- Links as gratitude.
    Good luck on your graduation and Happy Holidays!
