One of the most modest months after me returning to blogging, July saw me using my creative juices to maximum effect. I did not have much posts in July but those cannot be attributed to a bloggers block or whatever. The reason I did not blog much was because I was creating what is termed as the plugin of the year by 1000s of blog.
Looking back I was always against time users spent to update free softwares. Well if you don’t, you can be hacked this was what happened at Flashback, The Year That Was, July 2007
In June I settled down and averaged 1 post a day. It also sent my creativity levels in WordPress to another level as I created my first WordPress theme and saw a increase in traffic from the last month.
There were a total of 31 posts I wrote in June and quite a few of them were quite interesting. Starting June I went eased into blogging and started focusing more on traffic and quality posts.
I also made a lot of friends during this month, many of them are the best in the blogging world. Internet friendship really started to seem interesting to me. Remember I was still trying to plough my way back and this month definitely helped me do that.

Flashback, The Year That Was, June 2007
May was one of the most productive months of the year for Techie Buzz. This month actually marked my return to active blogging. It actually started out in April when I was settling in the new environment in the United States.
Liz Strauss one of my best friends and mentor surprised me one fine day by asking me to write for Chitika’s 30 Days 30 Experts Blog Bash held back in April 2007. I was quite skeptical but eventually gave in and wrote the post What is this thing called a blog anyway? A Perspective from India.
This was where I got the kicks from to come back to blogging on a regular basis and I thank Liz for actually sparking that dead interest. If you see me blogging regularly today it is because of Liz and I want to thank her for that, She is the best. If you are listening Liz I apologize for any mistakes I made :-(.
