20 Beautiful Professional Blogger Templates You May Want to Use

Professional blogging definitely requires you to use an elegant, versatile template. The importance of a template doesn’t stop at just the looks. You have to plan well ahead as to how your blog should look and perform. This planning should include: Where the content will appear, link list at the top, link list at the bottom, size of the blog, placement of widgets like archives, social network icons, advertisements, etc.

Concerning the prettiness, there are two types of templates—professional ones and aesthetic ones. The professional templates are more user-friendly, giving access to all blog’s features more easily, while remaining very eye-candy. While the aesthetic templates are rich in beauty and multimedia elegance. If you ask me, I would suggest you use a unique professional template—clean and elegant.

Using an aesthetic template with quite a bit of graphics and Flash content has certain disadvantages. The blog size will increase, Search engine indexing problem (search engines do not understand rich Flash content or images), etc.

If you are sure that you need an aesthetic template, make sure you don’t use any of those free ones already floating around in the Net. They are already used by quite a few newbie bloggers and will not help you in your brand building. Aesthetic templates are good only for celebrity bloggers—film stars, pop stars, etc.—who are not blogging as a full time profession.

Here Are a Few Professional Free Blog Templates for You. I fished around at various places including eBlogTemplates to get them. Comment on what you think of the list and suggest any other.

What Is the Difference Between Hardcover and Paperback?

Today, my reader, Rahman contacted me with a doubt:

Dear Lenin, would you explain why there are two types of books: hardcover and paperback?
This is quite a simple affair and there are explanatory articles to be found at various places on the Net. Here is my addition.


A hardcover aka hardback is a book bound with thick protective cover, with usually a paper or leather dust jacket over the main cover. The aim of hardcover is protection and durability. These books are mainly for long-term use and collectors’ editions. Hardcover books last far longer than the corresponding paperbacks. They do not get damaged easily thus making them perfect for reference guides, great literary works, etc.

In addition, there is a difference in the type of paper used to print hardcover books. The paper used is long-lasting acid-free type. Acid-free paper has a pH value of 7 (neutral) which makes it highly durable. The papers are stitched and glued to the spine.

Hardbacks are prepared for commercial …

En Dash, Em Dash, and Hyphen

We have three types of dashes in use: The hyphen, En Dash, and the Em Dash. In this post, we will see how to use them all correctly.

Hyphen (-)

The hyphen is the minus key in Windows-based keyboards. This is a widely used punctuation mark. Hyphen should not be mistaken for a dash. Dash is different and has different function than a hyphen.

A hyphen is used to separate the words in a compound adjective, verb, or adverb. For instance:

The T-rex has a movement-based vision.
My blog is blogger-powered.
John’s idea was pooh-poohed.

The hyphen can be used generally for all kinds of wordbreaks.

En Dash (–)

En Dash gets its name from its length. It is one ‘N’ long (En is a typographical unit that is almost as wide as 'N'). En Dash is used to express a range of values or a distance:

People of age 55–80 are more prone to hypertension.
Delhi–Sidney flight was late by three hours.

In MS Word, you can put an En Dash either from the menu, clicking Insert->Symbol or by the key-combination, Ctrl + Num…

What Is the Meaning of the Word 'Ghajini'? Story and Trivia of Aamir Khan's New Film [Special]

[Special Entry]

Aamir Khan's latest film is titled a little weirdly for the taste of Hindi filmgoers. 'Ghajini': They have never heard of such a name, and such a word never existed in Hindi or in any other Indian language.

The name Ghajini is the name of the villain of the film. In Tamil version, the name of the villain was Laxman.

As a Tamil moviegoer, I have already watched Ghajini and know the story in full.

So, What Does the Title Mean?

In Tamil, the title of the film is inspired by the story of Mahmud of Ghazni, an ancient invader of India. This person was so persistent in invading India that he continued trying after several failures. In the film too, the protagonist is such persistent in finding out and killing the villain of the film, who had killed his girlfriend, Kalpana (played by Asin). Aamir's Character (named Sanjay Ramaswamy in Tamil), is a short-term amnesiac, who cannot remember anything more than fifteen minutes.

You may ask then how the Ghazni became…
