Some of the Changes

In the last few months, I have made the changes that I thought that I never would. I still don’t know if there are positives or negatives because I still doubt them. Sometimes, I feel that there was no real point in the same and all the decisions were quite wrong. Then I think that change is good and can bring something fair in the variety. Well, life is very confusing as long as you decide to live it; otherwise things are quite easy and right into the grave. May be I should ask at the cemetery. These are the changes.

Buying a domain instead of using the free WordPress.com option: I never really wanted to buy a domain because I am a jobless person and I seem to go on without having a job or income forever; so this buying a domain might never stay forever as far as I am concerned. I still have no hope to continue having this domain because I have no salary, and I expect to lose that domain anytime and return to that WordPress.com site. Movies of the Soul might not stay with me forever as a separate domain.

But I had to buy that for now, because I thought that I needed it. Many of my friends has told me that it was better, and I was afraid that I might not be able to get that domain if I had chosen to delay – so I had to take that. May be it will bring something good for my movie reviews – it hasn’t done much until now, but I hope that it will be good some day. May be something will come up and I will get a job before I have to pay for the next one year. I would otherwise hope that parents won’t mind another year of Movies of the Soul.

Using Bing instead of Google: This is surely what I never thought that I would do, as I have shifted from Google to Bing, thus permanently changing my Search Engine. I have used Google Search for a long time, but I later found out that even though we won’t really matter in the end, Microsoft’s Bing is rather more caring for the common users. Even though things will always be in favour of the corporate side and we are just those little cockroaches for them, I have found that even my blog links appear better on Bling than Google.

Bing uses a reward policy for searching, and I have found that inspirational in searching; I see no reason why it shouldn’t. It provides separate credits for computer as well as mobile. It took some time to let me into the program after registering for the Windows Live Account, and I haven’t completely figured it out, but everything looks nice as of now. There are also rewards for inviting friends. Well, I would like to keep my search useful rather than do it for no reason.

Using the other browsers consistently at least on the mobile: I still use Google Chrome on the laptop even though I have installed other browsers too. But at least in the mobile, I hope to use the other browsers by default, and I mostly use the UC Browser and Opera. I have been using them consistently and hope to continue doing so. I don’t know why, but Movies of the Soul looks a lot better on UC Browser when looking through the mobile. It also seems to be the faster browser among them all.

Getting a gamepad and speakers from Flipkart: I still have not understood about this – I don’t play computer games or listen to songs these days. The games have left me because I can’t even come close to winning any game of life. The music no longer makes me feel anything too. So, I wonder why I bought these. Still, I hope to play some games and listen to any song. May be, I will get some of my interest back. Things have been going mechanical these days, and I hope for some twist to happen.

Sharing Some Statistics

On this Sunday on which I choose not to go to a theatre because all people having work on the other days will be there causing rush, I shall share some statistics with you. So, if you don’t want to hear about my Facebook Page, you may run away right now when the opportunity is still there. It is a Sunday, and there is no shortage of possibilities. It is completely about my Facebook Page, and I hope you have all liked it at [https://www.facebook.com/Movies-of-the-Soul-378583758873946]. Even if you forgot and are going to like the page right now, I will love that 😀

I initially thought about starting a separate page for this blog, but that was to be totally unnecessary, because about twenty percent of the posts in this blog is also related to movies, and two pages will be a little too much for me. I also share the posts from here on the page as far as they remain related to movies. I started the page for the first time supporting my other blog, Travel Diaries: Of this world and beyond with only close friends liking it, and then changed it into a combined page for my blogs and finally into the Movies of the Soul Facebook Page and has kept it that way.

If you look at the statistics, it is not even close to being the same for my blog and the Facebook Page. Those posts which have become successful on the blog have done less at the Facebook Page and vice versa, even though there are a few which have done good at both places. I haven’t been someone lookng at Facebook Statistics, but I did that last day, and this post comes as a result. Well, you can read a lot about what I found there, and here are the statistics for my Facebook Page.

The three cities outside Kerala which have the most likes for my page are Bangalore, Delhi and Chennai. The three top nations other than India are United States of America, Saudi Arabia and Canada. About half of the people who liked the page are between eighteen and twenty four years of age. I hope that some of you will contribute to change these statistics so that your age group, city or nation will be at a better spot in my list of likes. I would surely like that on a lovely Sunday 😀

The top city from outside India is Toronto. The top language is the United States English as expected. With the best reach, the highest are Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi. The reach for the nations has the highest in United States of America, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. Other than United States of America, people engaged with the posts are very low, outside India. The most visits come from Piscataway as far as the visits from outside cities are concerned.

My most viewed, commented, liked and shared post on Facebook is the Premam review, which makes me wonder if I should have watched and reviewed that movie a lot earlier. It took me too much time to write on that one, and it meant that too many possible visitors had gone missing. Well, I did try, but the rush was too much for the movie. The second place goes to Drishyam which has claimed the Bollywood throne for the most viewed and engaged post from Bajrangi Bhaijan which overtook ABCD 2 which had temporarily been at the top of my Bollywood posts.

Papanasam comes next and has become the leader of the Tamil movies list on my blog taking over from I, and that makes three out of three reviews on the same movie’s different versions success for me. The earlier leader among Malayalam movies was Iyobinte Pusthakam, and Mission: Impossible 5 – Rogue Nation is on its way to take over from Terminator Genysis as the top Hollywood movie on the Facebook Page – it is already there with the post reach. The Hollywood movies have given me less views, likes, comments and shares so far compared to the Indian movies.
