Special Notification:

The blog’s design has now been put under scrutiny. Now the blog has returned to the basic Blogger design of New Denim. When I had the WP Premium Red design on, the visitor response was rather shocking. Most of the visitors turned out to be bounces. Most visitors spent less than one minute here, and some left as they came spending zero second according to Analytics.

While I am investigating the reason behind these shocking stats, I decided to put the quick-loading easy template for some time and drop all the extra widgets. Another important thing is that the Adsense widget served on the sidebar got as minimum clicks as possible during these seven days. So, I have now slightly changed it. Give me your views of this design.

Also, the Blogger is rather reluctant in creating template that validate in W3C validation system. None of the blogs created here are entirely valid. It is up to the template designer to design a blog that validates. So, I have decided to give a try at getting the WP Premium theme validated. This work is ongoing. I hope that I will get it validated in some days and be able to post normally with it on.
