Happy New Year WriterBabus :D

I visit WB almost everyday but mostly for my personal diary. This is a new special entry in my public diary.

A lot has changed since my last diary entry. I left my job at Times Internet Limited and moved to my home town to do something for people here. Now am a free soul with some randomness in my mind trying to find some focus in life. Let's see where life take me from here.

Keep writing ... writing is fun ... :)

Finally after so many small tweaks the spam posts have stopped (almost). It was really frustrating. Although I did not gave too much time improving WriterBabu over the last year but whatever I did was for spam prevention.

I had been working on with Mom and Saumya since last few months. I recently learned react js and have built a small website for sharing my travel photos. Will make it live soon.

A lot of old pages has been updated to be in sync with rest of the site and be responsive. The book section has been updated too except for the book reading part which will be updated soon.

The big news is :Book publishing has been made free.

So after a long time and a big change. The cover images has a new shape and they are bigger in size. Although it looks like the old images are bigger as of now., but they are not, they are just stretched.

Now it's easier to insert images in between the post and easier to do some basic text styling like bold italic and bullet points etc. Also you can quote a text, it will appear as highlighted. Please read my post "An Evening In Paris" for more.

Have enabled ads on diary page and the post page. Need some source of income to support WriterBabu. The thing is that impressions don't make money. Only clicks will. Lets see.

Lots of changes are being made on day to day basis since last few weeks in WriterBabu. Small small changes to improve the site speed were made last to last week. Tonight I updated the diary card in feed. Earlier the card only had the diary cover image and name of the diary, but now it will show a line or two of the last diary entry.

Also the personal diaries will not appear in feed going forward.

Made live the new home page look. Also added a writing form on home page to make it easier to access. The writing flow has also been upgraded and is now more clean and easy to understand.

Please try out the new writing form and give me feedback. In the meanwhile am testing for any bugs in the new deployment.

Diary page will now show last 20 entries and there is a load more button which will help in loading more entries ... this change is done to increase the page load speed. Loading 100s n 100s of entries at once may take time while loading over slower network or on mobile.

Last one month went by just like that. No much progress. Was busy at office and home. There is no update on WriterBabu but still wanted to make this diary entry. Made a very long diary entry in my personal diary just now, feeling motivated again. It has been a struggle within to bounce back and work on WB since last one year with so much happening in my personal life.

Next big target is to release the next version of android app.

Sep 13th, 2015 9:48 PM

Updated the search page today. Also fixed a bug with custom poll.

Apart from that working on the android app currently.

Sep 06th, 2015 8:41 PM

Redesigned the navigation header today. The different sections are now easier to reach. The last update in which all the links were taken in a dropdown was a big mistake. No doubt the number pages viewed per visit dropped after that change.

Also few bugs were fixed in today's update. One of the bug was that earlier you could not "Ignore" a friend request. The notifications are no longer available in a drop down form. Which I think is a better user experience on mobile. But will need to make it available in drop down only for desktop. Feedback please for this.

The login page has been replaced by a new and responsive login and signup pages. The new ones will open up just fine on mobile as well. Earlier it was a pain to log in on mobile.

It has been really long since I last made a diary entry. So the news is that Writerbabu Android app is now available on playstore. :)

This very first version allows you to read and take poll on posts and read diaries. There is no option to write. That option will be added later. Currently there is no author profile as well.

So the plan is to introduce the following in the next few releases spanning over few months:
- notifications
- comments
- author profile
- diary writing
- post writing
- settings
- pen names

I may have missed something important in the above list just remind me of that you think of something. Books will be introduced next year later.

So guys just install the app and give your feedback.

Happy reading ... :)

Had to work on the Android app this weekend but ended up changing the UI of post page. The new design is aimed primarily to enhance readability of the content. One should not strain in order to read.

The new design is also aimed at bringing up more important features like bookmark and poll and making them important. The design is infused with more breathing space.

Let me know your feedback about the change. Keep writing ... writing is fun ... :)

This weekend was spent thinking on how to improve the poll feature while implementing it on the android app. Since app will be the limited version of the website only the most important and the core features which are most important will be there. Poll and comment are the ones which qualify for that. Working on them currently.

If you want to have a sneak peek into the app let me know, will send you the app to test.

In the meanwhile keep writing ... :)

Android is almost half way through. Landing screen is done. Post screen is also done except for poll and comments. Will add diary screen and will release the app.

There are still many small tasks that needs to be done before release like push notifications and user login/signup. The android app will be only a reading app initially with just post and diary section. There will not even be the author profile. Will add things in subsequent release.

The purpose of the app is to be able to read on the go. Spending time while travelling in metro and trains. Will add offline reading option too.

Time fly by so fast.

After the bookmark feature was added, I added a little meaning to the authors you follow. Whenever someone you follow publishes a post, you will get a notification. You will only get a notification when you have followed more than 10 authors. This condition in put in place to protect some sense of anonymity for unbiased opinion that you will give when you take the author poll.

Android is next on the list.

Mar 22th, 2015 02:18 AM

Testing diary writing from mobile. If it really works.

Mar 20th, 2015 01:41 AM

Just made the Bookmark feature live.

Its a tiny little button that will live on post page. It will help you to treasure a post forever so that you can visit it time to time. You can also add any post to a new reading list. Option for that will appear once you bookmark a post.

So now you can make a various kinds of collection of posts and everyone will be able to see it and follow it. Anytime you add a new post to your reading list, followers of the list will be notified.

Over and out for tonight. Keep writing ... :)

Working on something I think will be really really great for WriterBabu's Readers ... lets see how it turns up. Hint, its one of the oldest features in the world of reading and books.

Keep writing ... writing is fun ... :)
