What are the 10 Secret Benefits of Blogging ?

Just about everyone is a blogger these days whether they realize it or not.

If you write something on Facebook and receive comments and feedback then you are a blogger.

Tweet a short sentence of 140 characters on Twitter and you are a micro blogger.

Upload a video to YouTube where you can obtain subscribers and elicit comments, then you are a video blogger.

The 10 Benefits of Blogging

I have discovered that blogging has many side benefits that are not apparent from an outsider looking in. This is what I have found to be the bonus benefits to blogging that you may find empowering and maybe enlightening.

1. You will  become a better writer

Just the discipline of sitting down and writing will improve your writing skills. Thinking and planning doesn’t  cut it…action and doing does!

2. Your video skills will improve

If you spend some time interviewing people with videos or even  recording yourself to provide online education and “how to”‘ tips via video, then your video skills will improve whether that is the lighting, the structure of the set or even the sound quality.

3. You will learn

To write you have to read. There is a very distinct direct bonus from this activity. You will learn …a lot!

Stephen King the novelist summed it up well ”If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.”

4. Visibility – People will hear about you

People discover information online today, so if you want to be a discovered and become a visible expert then blogging and social media will provide you with the visibility. Conducting a Google search is how we find people and information today not the library or the town square unless you are a stalker.

Geoffrey Rush the Oscar winning actor said “In my career two things have been vital.. Credibility and Visibility”

5. Expert status

Perceived or real, the art of publishing online via blogging will transform you from an amateur to a  professional. Keep doing this with enough passion, purpose and focus and you will become “that” expert on your chosen topic if you persist.

6. Become a champion researcher

You will also find the best ways to obtain information as you hunt down information and resources for your blog. You will identify global bloggers, resources and experts that will provide the insights and information you need to provide ongoing value to your readers.

7. Power networker

As you start to become noticed people will want to connect with you and catch up for a coffee or invite you to their events and gigs. What a great way to meet your tribe who love your topic as much as you do.

8. Your memory will improve

Exercising the brain through writing and learning will provide much needed exercise for the neurons. Keeping the body fit requires physical exercise. The mind needs stimulation and activity as well to be mind fit. You will be amazed by what you will remember from participating in mental gymnastics provided by blogging activities.

This will also have a the side benefit of looking more intelligent at cocktail parties and that has to be a good thing!

9. Your creativity will increase

Nothing like a focused passion to improve your creativity.You will find that your brain will think more creatively as you move from conscious skills to unconscious and automatic activity, that frees up the thinking for out of the box thinking.

10. Synergizes and Synthesizes Focus

The act of writing and expressing yourself online will provide you with internal and external feedback that sharpens the intuition and focuses your mind. The benefits of a social interactive web is that it taps into the global mind that will provide you with the feedback loop that will sharpen and amplify your purpose and passion if you are willing to listen.


Blogging as Self Fulfillment

Blogging for me has been a path to not only to self expression but self fulfillment that has become a journey of self discovery.


20 July 2013

Day started with Simple work But due to rain I was not able to go TCC. but at home I was continue my work.
I was completed small work and read same documentations of CODE_ASTER software. but due to the electricity problem I was not able to complete that documentation 😦

But At 12:30 Pm I got a mail from Seam from BRL_CAD that my patch is accepted. 🙂 I’m happy that my patch is accepted.

Thought of a day
The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work.
work is the key to success, and hard work can help you accomplish anything

19 July 2013

Today the day starting with very interesting way because today I win the running race from my father 🙂 After 5 years now I’m a winner 🙂 and now I realize the meaning of these words:
There is nothing in this life that can destroy you but yourself.
           Bad things happen to everyone, but when they do, you can’t just fall apart and die.
                     You have to fight back. If you don’t, you’re the one who loses in the end.
                                    But if you do keep going and fight back, you win. 

After that a normal work as my today’s work is to improve wBRLCAD project so basically I was trying two thing that firstly I will give the option to user that they can download a .g file or .stl file and second is that if user not know the meaning of any parameter then there should be a help option where user can get some basic knowledge of that parameter.
So firstly I was uploaded that project on experimental and then try some basic operation on it and then show it to my mentor.
So at last I’m happy today 🙂

Thought of a day

Sometimes not getting what you want is a brilliant stroke of luck 🙂

18 July 2013

Today the day started with normal work as my today’s task was to convert the .g file in to that format which can access by Code-Aster software but to find that which file formats it can access firstly i have to install CODE_ASTER $$ SALOME_MECA. So to install that i was follow the the ishpuneet blog and install then I found that it works on ” .sat , .brep , .iges , .igs , .step , .stp ”
So after some search I found only .iges format which can successfully converted by BRL-CAD. So to convert that I follow the Manual page of that command but options in that command is very confusing after reading it 2 or 3 time and searched on internet then I found that
$g-iges -f -o sample.iges sample.g simple.c
is a command which can complete my work so after execute that command it works and give a sample.iges file.Now its time to check it on CODE_ASTER software. After checking this it works 🙂
But it was not as accurate as we require so now end of a day I’m trying to find the reason of that

Thought of a day

If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut 🙂

Today when I reached a TCC there was a problem in internet so I went to CC lab and started working on my work.
Firstly my problem was to run the wBRLCAD project on my local host but to run that I was facing Some problem So to solve that problem I was struggling about 3 hours but no solution then I posted a mail but this time no solution was found during typing a mail 😦 so my that theory was failed at that point and after that Jaskaran helped me and in 3 min he solved my problem 😦
I was shocked that for that simple problem I was wasted 4 hours. so due to that I was soo much disappointed about my performance 😦
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall

At 4 pm there was a presentation on CADE_ASTER software and then sir give me task that give ishpuneet a model file that is accessed by CAD_ASTER
So for that task I have to firstly install a CADE_ASTER and then find the file formats that are used in it and then convert .g file in to that file format.

15 July 2013

Today when I reach a TCC there was a problem in a internet so I went to CC lab and started working on my work.
Then to improve that .stl file view firstly I’m searched about .stl format structure and trying to under stand it after that I was trying to improve my water.stl file.In between I was working on a finding the bugs in wBRL-CAD project And posted a mail on GD .As I know it is easy to find a bugs in others projects but to solve it is very hard. But I’ll improve it and then sir and harman will say good work.
After lunch a little discussion with my menter about my problems and he explained my every thing 🙂 and explained my why yours make file shows error.

13 July 2013

Today when I reached TCC asusual a internet problem is there so I went to cc lab
As today I have lots of work to do firstly I have to make a bug report of wBRL-CAD project and then convert .g file format in to .stl format
firstly I’ll do the task of conversion the file format.
It is very easy to convert file format in brlcad but to ensure that it works its difficult as conversion of .g file is complete in 5 seconds but when I was trying to open it in openSCAD and meshlab then its shows no response.then to post that problem when I was typing a mail and trying to explain problem in simple words then suddenly I found the solution of that problem. problem is solved but when I was open it in these software then no change only blank screen .Then sir told me that open it in freeCAD.
In starting it also not works but when I read documentations of freeCAD and learn some simple ways to use freeCAD then with simply Zoom out it shows a model of water tank 🙂
So my today’s task is complete 🙂

10 July 2013

Today when I reached a TCC. I have a so much problems to solve.but firstly I started reading mails of GD.
After that when I started writing mail about my problem of warnings but during typing that mail suddenly I found that if I kill all those para meters from model then whats the result and that it works but that solution is temporary.
So its a first time when I found a solution of problem during typing the mail.
After that convert that .g file of water tank model in .stl format before lunch that task is complete. 🙂
But after lunch when I’m trying to open that .stl file in OpenSCAD and mashlab it not shows any output.Even in BRL-CAD it not shows any output.
So now I’m in one more problem then to solve it I’m keep on searching about that and reading mails of discussion about conversions of formats in both GD and BRL-CAD mailing lists.
But as usual no result 😦

9 July 2013

Today when I reached a TCC there was some  internet connection problem. so I went to CC lab and started working on my task. As my today task is to post the patch on source forge list and Edit a model of water-tank and convert it in to .stl format
So to complete that task firstly I created an account on source forge and then posted my simple patch and after that small work I was started working on my next task which is to edit the water tank model and convert it in to .stl format.
Firstly when I open the watertank project in brlcad and execute a command ” e watertank.r ” in command window to draw a watertank model in graphics window then it shows a 7 warnings that
” db_lookup (stirrupSteelBarCombination.c) faild in /watertank.r/foundationColumn* ”
which is quit confusing but I’m keep on trying and reading some documentations and reading some mail in mailing list regarding this but no result found but some interesting thing I found that are related to my project.
After lunch we had 4 presentations.
Kamal gave on PostgreSQL
Prabhdeep on Apache server
Deepak on latex and And the last presentation was by Inderpreet on UI. He told us about the designers, back-end developers and the front-end developers with what their roles are and how they are inter-related. Basically he explained the need of the front-end development.
At the end we saw a 35 min 3 idiots movie edited by harjot kaur. the editing was really very good

So at the end of a day I’m still struggling in to find the reason of that warnings.

8 July 2013

Today my day started with a problem because today I missed jogging and gym.
Then after reach the TCC I started working on my pending problem that is on draftsight. After some struggle  Then suddenly I remind that bumble bee is installed in my laptop because bumble bee disable the NVIDIA driver of graphics and decrease the power consumpution.
Bumblebee aims to provide support for NVIDIA Optimus. Using Bumblebee,
you can use your NVIDIA card for rendering graphics which will be
displayed using the Intel card.
But its primary use is to enable smart power management of the dGPU
when graphic card is not in use.

So due to that when I’m trying to install draftsight. Its installation
is complete properly but it doesn’t works due to the reason of

So After removing the Bumble bee Draft sight works.
Before lunch my problem of draftsight is solved 🙂

But after lunch when i restart my laptop afterwards and logged in , all I could see was the Desktop background (together with Desktop icons), and no Unity interface. The Super button shortcut wasn’t showing the Dash, there was no top panel etc. 😦


Now one more problem due to that i was so upset but with the help of my friend Sukhdeep I was trying to solve the problem but no result found. but we keep on searching then we find that its a problem due to the unity.
but it not works
But at the end of the day problem solved
following are the command to solve that problem

1.Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal window.
2.At the terminal prompt, type ccsm. If the CompizConfig Settings Manager window appears, skip to step nn. If not, continue with step
3.Type sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager. Type your password when prompted.
4.At the next terminal prompt, type ccsm.
5.In CompizConfig Settings Manager, select the check box for the OpenGL plugin if it isn’t already selected.
