Google Drive

The buzz is that….

Google is driving Google Drive, oh, not on the streets of Paris, indeed on the clouds.
Yes, you heard right, as soon in put query “drive” in Google Search Engine, the suggestion tool shown me drive.google.com in drop down at No 3, needless to say I followed the link and I was greeted by Google Drive page, where in the extreme top right is a sign in button. I am a google user since a decade or more and so I sign using my google id which drive to the next window saying “your drive is not ready yet, we will inform you in your mail once it get ready” so I am waiting for my new google drive.


What I will get is 5GB of free storage, that means enough to keep articles in rtf format for at least one year from now, sufficient for me. However if you are a business photographer for example, and need more space, you can go for a paid version and google drive will offer 25 GB storage.

At first look it seems, using Google Drive is easy as attaching an email or using a face book account. The people who are already Google Docs user will find it easy to use, however for new users I will personally say, do some hit and try with google docs if you have never used docs before, this will develop an understanding in you how to use Google Drive.

Trust matters, in past 10 years of day and night internet uses I never found any big flaw in google products even in Beta stage. Storing your data in Google Drive means giving access to Google to your important files and information; however they are highly professional and you can believe on them same as you believe on your banker. What to store and what not to store is completely your choice.

Here let me draw a fine line between what to store and what not to store on a Google Drive.

We all do banking, concerned bankers always knows how may $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ we have in our bank account. Do any of ever share information like ************* with a banker NO.

Same is true with Google Drive. Hope you understand well what I mean exactly.

Signing up for google drive is as easy as 1,2,3.

If you already have a google id you can sign in with the same.

Just logon to http://drive.google.com

One my google drive ready I will update you through this blog how to use google drive and its different aspects.

Learn to read

Do not read to learn. Kids go school for reading and comeback exhausted. In many higher education institutions Ph.D candidates read and compile thesis based on how much they have learnt based from reading over say 3 or 5 years or may be more sometime with grant or without grant. Often I have seen one trend the people who impress you own many books, think any name that come to your mind and check what the person read. You will find a coal business person may have books on literature. A mathematics professor may have books of archeology. Talk to them. Often you will find the person attached with a certain profession can only speak or debate around that area only. Or discuss something random and you will be taken that certain area of work or passion. Consider sports. Cricket. Jonty  Rhodes best fielder and enjoys water sports.  The successful people are open, they learn from everywhere and apply those ideas in personal development and profession. No matter how many money making classes yo

Why documentation is important for bloggers

More often I received requests to improve website SEO or build a new website or improve an existing one. One common problem with lot of those website owners and bloggers is they do not have any documents about their expectations. They say do it best, do it as you like, I mean business. Or maximum they present some similar site. Imagine a legal professional showing you a similar site and its about a hotel or resort. That is not the story of most novice only. Even people in IoT business since over a decade and software professionals act numb. This simply put off me. Whenever you start a blog or website, ask yourself Why I am creating this website? Who are my prospects? What I expect from this website? How this website well fulfill my expectation? How I want this site to look like? How I will promote this website? How often I will need upgrade? How much budget and time I can allocate for this? Write down answers to above questions and any additional one that you have? To help you design p
