I actually don’t have encounter as a correspondent or technical writer, yet what does a person have to start running a blog and who have pays, if the blogger gets acquired as a writer?.

It had become the alarming problem in my position, nevertheless discovering your expert technique you managed that made me to cry with fulfillment.

  4. I’m having some difficulties with Firefox, so I want to uninstall it and then reinstall it. Yet I want to save all my book marks, so may i save my bookmarks to my computer, and then transfer them to Firefox once I reinstall it? Thanks for the help..

  5. I’m only 15, but i’m trying to raise money to go on a expensive trip next year. We are planning on getting a summer months job, however it usually only pays minimal wage. I just want other people’s opinions upon whether its safe and a good idea to turn into a blogger to get money. thanks!.

  6. Excellent WordPress blog page and the things i need is to rotate my blog posts repeatedly with a predetermined time time period. And also I’d like to shuffle my posts. Would REALLY SIMPLY SYNDICATION feeds grab the rotated blog posts since new types? Does someone have this PHP code? Thanks a lot.

  7. Dear Manu,See, first of all, UPSC never declares the cut-off. All these fgeruis are guesstimates. Last year, under an RTI question, UPSC declared that the cut-off was somewhere in 190s (190 200).Secondly, the cut-off is bound to change from year to year depending on the difficulty level of question papers.This year, the guess is that the cut-off may be at or around 200 for general category. Also, a score of 185+ for general category is a hopeful score (worth looking forward to the results). For reserved categories it may be slightly lesser.Regards,Rau’s IAS
