“ENVIUS THOUGHTS”-MY VIEW! ”ART AND SCIENCE OF BLOGGING”
N V Subbaraman
The Blogger in his casual attire on his Blog work in his study room!
I am of firm belief that it is Divine guidance that leads one’s life. I have several times expressed through this Blog that ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com has become an important and integral part of my life and living and this is one of the three things dear to my heart at this age and stage!
It was in the last calendar year that I started this blog and day after day, it is becoming a great passion for me!
Planning, decision making and execution- important management principles are applicable in managing a Blog also! It becomes very important especially if one wants to make a post every day in chain without a single day’s break. It is indeed an art and science!
There are quite a few platforms- Shareaholic, WordPress.com, Blogger, Tumblr, Medium, Squarespace, Typepad, Weebly, Drupal, Joola and so on. I consider it my fortune that I chose “wordpress.com” as my platform for my blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS at the instance of my Bangalore based Journalist son. While I take stock of my Blogging experience since the last day of February 2015 when I made my FIRST POST till this day my 350th post, I feel as if I have achieved something very great in my life- much more than what I achieved while I was in service at a senior level in an Indian Public Sector Undertaking!
I am simply delighted to receive a report on my activities from WordPress which I proudly share with my viewers – SEVEN SNAP SHOTS- and some data.
In fact on 2nd January- I have shared the entire report in this blog. Though some information is repeated, I feel it is worth it.

Today is my 350th post and that is the “TALE OF A BLOGGER Part VII”-! Every 50th post I share with my viewers the tale and 350th is the VII part. Number of days since the launch of the blog is 331.
Total number of views so far: 27850
No. of countries: 188
Top FIVE viewing countries: India 7607
Top FIVE posts by views:
National Cancer Survivors Day (USA) 6378
World Day against child labor. 1398
My TRYST with LIC of INDIA 155
World Oceans Day 108
A precious gem is gone 108
We can reasonably distribute the Home Page/Archives views viz 15278 over the 349 posts when each Post on an average, view will be increased by 44.
I am amazed at the top viewed post viz “National Cancer Survivors Day (USA)” with a view score of 6378. Please have a look at the vast difference between the first and the next! Probably it has an element of prayer ingrained in the post and that has attracted-is attracting -the viewers from all over!
So, thus goes my experience- There were moments of joy on looking at the increasing views and sadness when the number slipped on a few days. Record opening view score was on 17/1/16 and the score at 5.00 hours was ZERO!!!!!!???? which is normally anything between 20 to 50! It has in fact helped me to follow the Geethopadesa-“ACTION IS THY DUTY; FRUIT IS NOT THY CONCERN”.
Very interesting experience visited me on 22nd January when a few viewers from US and Iraq expressed their great sense of appreciation for Tamil Saint Poet Thiruvalluvar’s thoughts on 32 topics which were shared through “ENVIUS THOUGHTS” in 32 posts! The rest 101 will by HIS grace, I hope will appear in the Blog in due course.
Let me go on with my passion as long as God wills it.
I wholeheartedly thank my viewers from 187 countries of the world and solicit their continued support. I am equally grateful to WORDPRESS for providing a great platform for my “ENVIUS THOUGHTS”.
Something interesting-nothing to do with the blog but of course something related to the blogger about twenty years ago and now!
When I was heading the Life Insurance Corporation’s Kadapa Division, one of the Branch Managers attended a session at the National Insurance Academy -an Institution in Pune devoted to Insurance Education in India- gave an assignment to the fifty odd participants to present the profile of their “ROLE MODEL”. This participant chose in his own way to quote this blogger as his role model and made a fine presentation of it. He never told me about this on his return. After a few months when I happened to visit the NIA, the Faculties and the Director congratulated me and asked what magic I did. I could not catch it and then they came with the “ROLE MODEL EPISODE”. I told them that the participant probably had so much of affection for me which anyhow I don’t deserve!. Later the NIA returned officer explained to me in detail.
A couple of days back an eighth standard girl student of a famous school in Chennai, came running to share a news with me on return from school. She is the daughter of my neighbor in our colony. In her half yearly examination English paper on the other day there was a question: Write 10 lines on the personality whom you like most.” This girl told me she wrote about this blogger and she was awarded full 3 marks for her writing!
What a parallel in the gap of a twenty year period at different levels of the individuals concerned!!
Wishing you all a fantastic 2016!
