This post is for those of you who use Google Reader. If you don’t use Google Reader, then feel free to skip this post. As you might have known, Google Reader will be shut down on July 1. It means that you will no longer get updates from this blog (and any other blogs you follow) if you don’t move away from it before July 1. Therefore you need to move to an alternative. There are two alternatives that I recommend: Get updates by email. This is convenient because you will get new posts directly in your inbox. For this, go to this page and follow the instructions there. Use Feedly. Feedly is a feed reader that can import your Google Reader data. That way your transition will be seamless. Please visit this page for more information. Since Google Reader will cease to function in a matter of days, you should act quickly. I hope to stay connected to you through the new medium.
A quick personal update: I just got married. Well, it’s been over one week actually (it’s on November 20), but I went out of town for a few days with no Internet access. That’s why I couldn’t share the news with you earlier. Now that I’ve been back to work, I thought I’d just tell you about it :) On a side note, it’s been some time since I wrote a post here (my last post was published on September 23), but I do plan to write more frequently. Thanks for being with me on this blog!
Guest posting spots for October are now open and I’d like to invite you to participate. The theme will be Winning Attitude which covers the attitudes we need to have to grow and overcome challenges in life. Three examples are patience, persistence, and resilience, but there are still many other attitudes that can be covered. Please read Guest Posting Guidelines for more information.
At September 7, 2006, the first post here was published. So it’s now the second anniversary of Life Optimizer! It’s been one year since I wrote the first anniversary post and I’ve learned a lot since then. I learned not only about blogging but also about personal growth and life in general. That’s what I love about blogging: it speeds up my learning process. This blog has also experienced healthy growth in the past year. The number of subscribers grew from about 1200 one year ago to about 5400 now. The traffic level, especially organic traffic from search engines, has also increased steadily. Of course, all these are possible because of you, the reader. Without your support and participation, this blog wouldn’t come anywhere near where it is now. It’s you who motivate me to keep learning and writing. So let me say this to you: Thank you!
