Happy Birthday!

Thank You God!

For guiding me in your path, for teaching me more of WordPress, keeping my server healthy and for blessing me with the best readers I could ever have. Be with me Lord! And help me fight the Hackers and Spam and all other forms of evil I might encounter on my way ahead.Happy Brithday! Have some cake.

Million Clues! is one year old.

On my last birthday, when I turned 20, I looked back and thought. What have I done with my 20 years? Though every moment was worth living for (school life, amazing friends and the celebrations), there was nothing I could point out as ‘something’. I turned 21 today, and here it is, my cute little space on the web, that I am a lot proud of!

Thank You all for being part of me, for all your support and words that kept me writing on and on.

Suddenly Everyone wants a Blog…

“Total waste of time”, “You got nothing else to do?”, “No one is gonna read”. These are some of the comments I got when I was starting off with Blogging. Not many of my friends even cared to ask what I was doing. Oh! Reading and writing are not very popular subjects of discussion at college.

Now that I have started getting checks, everyone wants to know what I am doing, how I do it. Surprisingly, even some guys who never went online started asking. I like the treatment.

Was it worth the time? Hell, yea! Blogging looks like the best decision I ever made. Thank You all again!

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.
