Important Note – Tell Me About Yourself

This blog is referred as Waqas’s blog, but it is equally yours. I believe knowing and communicating with you people is one of the basic reasons to start this blog.

So here we go, please answer these simple questions, to let us all know about yourself. I shall like it very much, and it’ll also help me know you better.

  1. What is your name?
  2. Where were you born?
  3. Where do you live now?
  4. What do you do? (your profession/hobbies or anything)
  5. What does excite you? (you love to do _____?)
  6. What is your website? (blog / profile etc)
  7. What did you take in your last meal? (if you’re not fasting since years)
  8. How did you get know this blog? (i.e WaqasADay)
  9. Do you like something here? What?
  10. What do you think of Pakistan?

Please share your answer here in comments, and I’ll post them on About You page.

I really can not wait to meet you. Thank you for being with all the time.

Warmly! Waqas

Did You Know? Why You Visit Waqas A Day

By the time you get to your browser and jump to WaqasADay (for which I’m grateful), I along with my younger brother put all the wheat in the bags. Earlier my mother spread it on roof.

In a small town of Pakistan, like I live in Basirpur, life is different.

But there is something really powerful which unites us, it is the diversity.

Yes! Diversity Unites Us! It makes us happy! It makes you happy! It makes me happy!

I value and appreciate your visit / share / feedback.

And most importantly the moments when you think of this of this blog and the guy behind.

Nothing more to say. This post is super-awesome!

I ♥ You.

Best Way to Get Back Into Blogging or Anything After Laziness

[tweetmeme source=”Waqas6” only_single=false]

In short: Do It Now!

(or keep continuing for more)

It’s been 40 days since I haven’t wrote anything on this blog. The only reason I didn’t is Laziness. Yes I have reasons to advocate my absence, but I and you know there is no valid reason to not to do anything when you seriously want to do.

Well, when I’m writing this post there is another tab opened in my browser about 13 Ways To Get Back Into Blogging. I read that, but seriously it didn’t help me.

That’s why I just decided to DO IT! This is because it is only between you and me. I care for the genuine connection between us, and seriously I feel sorry for a long disconnection from my side.

These 40 days have taught me a lot, about myself. I talked to myself, watched movies and ignored that I’ve a blog where me and my friends communicate and learn together.

But I missed it, I missed when a new connection start. I missed the feeling of clicking the Publish Button after writing a post. I missed you all. In fact I missed a big part of me, who’s passionate about Changing World and creating art each single day. Thankfully I’m back. More Thankfully you’re back too.

This is not just my personal assumption that things will be back to normal just because of me. It is because of you people who care.

Believe me if you haven’t done some wonderful thing in a long time. Don’t lose heart, life is not over, nor inside you. Either it is blogging, morning walk, teaching or photography or anything. You can do it because only you can do it.

I’m back, we’re back. Get back, do it! I hope you guys have good health. Say hello if you want. Or share. Also tell me what you have been up to. How did the Easter go?

Thank you all for your care.

Very yours,

Waqas

Summary of #smpk Twitter Chat: Using Facebook for Businesses in Pakistan

On Sunday (Feb 27, 2010) marked the first official #smpk twitter chat. The #smpk tag was born to discuss social media trends and use in Pakistani perspective.

I invited everyone to participate and was fortunate to attract members of IT committee of Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry and some new media learner.

Some highlights from the chat:

You can read all the tweets by following #smpk

I’ll not repeat what all was said in the chat, you can read that.

In short, social media sites especially Facebook, twitter and YouTube are here to stay for long. This is because they are not driven by the companies behind them but these are the users like you and me, who find value in their interactions on web.

If you are a business, remember you can not get in to the community circle by marketing tone.

Be Social, Be Human!

Whole World Is Our Community

When I’m writing this line, I’m talking to a friend via Facebook chat in India. He is a big motivator and inspiration to me. Before 2009 I hardly knew anyone personally outside my friends and local community. But internet and social media sites has helped me to connect with like minded people like you. The best thing about you people is that we can interact genuinely and make some big or small difference to ours lives.

I personally believe Whole World Is Our Community and social media is helping us to be social. What is the size of your community, are you building one? If yes, how social media is helping you to be social? Please share.

PS. I’ll be sharing my best life changaing online connection in this week, so stay tuned friends.

Sharing Happiness Socially.

Today my brother’s wife Salma cooked delicious Kheer (a sweet dish made of milk & carrot). Although she cooked not much, but she presented some to a poor women who lives nearby with her 3 children. When she returned she stated as follow,

“Everyone happily gifts to those who are equally rich or more, but less privileged families are being neglected socially. So I wanted to give her from my cooking.”

This is really awesome, I’m feeling proud of her. We all must share our happiness with those who have less of it.

‘About You’ is equally important.

I created this blog for following five reasons:

  • to create everyday.
  • to have fun.
  • to interact with friends.
  • to learn.
  • to be a better human.

I believe non of this can be achieved without knowing ‘You. I know many of you have just been reading and Liking (by the Like button ;)), but my dear reader & friend I want to know about You.

Yes real human who is sitting opposite to screen.

Don’t know what to tell? Just answer the following questions to give me chance to know you more.

  1. What is your name?
  2. Where were you born?
  3. Where do you live now?
  4. What do you do? (your profession/hobbies or anything)
  5. What does excite you? (you love to do _____?)
  6. What is your website? (blog / profile etc)
  7. What did you take in your last meal? (if you’re not fasting since years)
  8. How did you get know this blog? (i.e  Inside Out | waqas a day)
  9. Do you like something here? What?
  10. What do you think of Pakistan

Please do not underestimate value of ‘About You’. It is really needed and I’ll be grateful if you take few minutes to write answers of the questions and / or anything you would like to add more.

Can’t wait to know ‘About You’ 😀

PS. I’m planning to add an ‘About You’ page in this blog, so share away!
