Its a six! 6 years of blogging

Well, it has been a busy year for Yusuf you would think because of the number of blogposts in the past one year. Any guesses? Yes, 1. Just 1. I don't want to retrospect and write a retrospective blog post to post excuses. Having said its a six, time to step up for seven up and write more this year.

As always, I always share my very first post - Welcome to whenever I write a happy birthday blog.

So, in the meanwhile, I'd like to join your hands in wishing this blog a very happy birthday and for the more to come!

Believe in magic

"....And if you were to ask me

After all that we've been through

Still believe in magic?

Well yes, I do

Oh yes, I do

Oh yes, I do

Oh yes, I do

Of course I do."

Goes the lines of Coldplay's chart topping song Magic. But if you read between the lines, its about magic and just magic. So what's magic? In a pure human's (aka layman's) terms, its something that breaks the belief of the human mind that what was shown is not possible.

I came across this brilliantly thought about image that says Music is Magic. That is so true for each and every song that I love.

This blog post is purely dedicated to the magic Coldplay has done with this song. It activates the sober senses and does the trick. "Call it magic, Call it true".

5 years of !!

Well, it all did not start with the question "Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?". 

It started with me realizing that I need to have a space for myself on the Internet and the best way to do that is to register a nice domain with just Yusuf on it....and what do you know - I was lucky to see the availability of with my favorite domain registrar - (who do a great job in customer service!)

The next thing I remember is getting an account on's RapidBlog wordpress blog hosting service that was newly introduced then, for quite a small amount per year with all data on the cloud. I could proudly say that I was a cloud computing campaigner.

The next 4 years of were spent in the cloud, with not so frequent updates to the blog's theme, playing with wordpress plugins, crashing the blog once with a wordpress update, missing the renewal of the Rapidblog and following up with's customer service to get it back up, trying to write reviews of every movie I watch, trying to get reviews of those that my friends watch, trying to get reviews of IPL (Indian Premier League) from cricketing fanatic friends of mine!

The most important change today is that is now in Blogger which provides a free hosting platform J. It took a while to export from Wordpress to Blogger and now things are fine and dandy.

I always share my very first post - Welcome to whenever I write a happy birthday blog.
So here we are, at this 5 years juncture, with a short look-back of what was published at this blog. No questions yet again for the coming years as well.

I'd like to join your hands in wishing this blog a very happy birthday and for the more to come!
