Promote Your Twitter Profile With Me!

Following someone on Twitter shouldn't only be for self-promotion. If you need to make it profitable, you can learn a little bit about twittering to make affiliate sales here. My advice is to follow me for the tweets I make, not to let me know the tweets you make. I don't usually follow anyone that follows me.

Why I Follow Whom I Follow?

1. They provide me with important updates.
2. They are good twitterers who are there not to promote their business alone.
3. People like Liz Strauss and Darren Rowse are so good twitterers that they reply to you however busy they are.
4. They also tweet good resourceful links that I will find useful.

Why Should You Follow Me?

1. I tweet useful articles
2. I read all my tweet replies nowadays and reply whenever I get a message.
3. You will find links to any interesting article I read.

When Will I Start Following You?

1. Tweet to me (@vjlenin), anything you find interesting. Take time to read through my tweets and @reply me if you find anything interesting.
2. Build your profile not for self-promotion.
3. Let me know any cool link that I can read and share (not only the link to your blog).

Here is My Twitter Profile for you to follow.

  1. There I am following you now. I like Twitter. Twitter is pretty interesting. I am Bookcalendar on twitter. I like posting quotes and short haiku. Twitter has some interesting aspects about it.

  2. Hi Book Calender, thanks for that.

  3. HI:
    I am with you there on people following because they like what you have to say, vs expecting a "follow-back" or they'll drop you. I don't follow people whose content contain nothing of interest to me, so why clutter my timeline with it? I have enough "internet popularity" elsewhere (which, in all honesty, isn't all that great in life's big scheme) to worry about building some huge fan base. I tweet when I want, about what I want, and if people like it, great. If they get my attention (through a mention or something) I'm much more likely to follow back than if they just start following me and never interact with me (I don't have time to comb through all my new followers and deal with all that). Anyway, I'm glad to see someone finally put it out there about following to read someone's tweets, not to make them read your tweets. I've tried to say this a few times myself but it seems few "get the memo." Ha-ha. (And yes, I did start following you and your two friends.) I'm not a daily user but I tweet enough to stay "relevant" and I tweet a lot of diverse topics. But I will never remember to alert any specific person when I tweet something "of possible interest," so no worries about a follow-back. Thanks also for the blog information, it's good to get a variety of perspectives.

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…
