Love fool

If I let the door ajar to my soul wear my heart on the sleeve trust every smiling face and every fake praise tainted with those broken desires then the fault is in me   If I let him be the sweet talker and blush at every small trivial comment sing his praises to my heart's … Continue reading Love fool

How To Backup Your WordPress Blog To Prevent Losing All Its Contents

Hugh's Views & News  

How would you feel if you woke up one morning and discovered that your WordPress blog had been deleted or that most of your content had been lost?

It’s a scary thought, and probably the worst kind of nightmare situation for many bloggers.

WordPress has a process that allows all its users to backup the contents of their blog.

Today, I’m going to show you how to backup your blog without going via the ‘WP Admin’ button on the dashboard of your blog.

“True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.”  Audrey Hepburn

Inner Architecture

There were times,
more than she could remember,
that a voice would say
take your beauty and trade,
however, while she valued
her external beauty
for beauty defined her,
far more did she value her
inner architecture being
a foundation for all that
seeks the good and the wise,
a real beauty.

I know

Megha's World

“I want
To do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.”
― Pablo Neruda

I know from the wisdom 

passed on from generation

why family becomes your will to survive 

I know what miseries are

and what lesson they teach

from this topsy-turvy life

to reach the sky

I know from 

the scorching sun 

the parched earth

that it’s always 

followed 

by rain-bearing 

skies

I know from the 

rose and its thorns

the more beautiful the soul is

the more difficult

is to occupy

I know from the scars 

in my life

they are the 

maps to follow for the 

fallen passerby

I know the trails 

and tribulations are 

nothing but a litmus test

for my soul to 

so  it can thrive

I know I have been through

defeats and deception

to sieve the friends 

from just another passerby

I know from the heartbreaks 

there are stops before 

you finally…
