How to install security certificate for custom domain in Google Blogger

Google Blogger is my den of productivity since years. My first blog attracted huge traffic for years. And do you know this traffic was coming from only one single page. I love to blog on blogspot because while Google Engineers work on blackened I can focus on one thing I love to do i.e. writing.
Encrypted Secure connection was a big thing in the past but now its not a luxury. Google has rolled out https for custom domain for Indian bloggers. Encryption was available for Blogspot bloggers since years but not for those hosting a custom domain. Now its there.

I enabled secure connection for my blogs and doing this is just like signing in for an email or less. I was little bit hesitant, what will happen to my blog if I enable security certificate. I gave it a try and pretty fun to do.

  • Open Blog Spot Control Pannel
  • In the left on Top from blog list, chose your blog.
  • In the drop down Go to settings
  • On setting panel locate for Enable Https Feature, it will appear as No if not enabled before
  • Click On the arrow button, Yes option will pop out.
  • Select Yes.
  • Google will save the new settings and you are done.
Now this blog you are reading right now is secure, that means information will travel from blogspot server to your computer in fully encrypted mode. No one on the route of information highway will know if you are reading. Also when you send me a question using contact form, the information will travel over fully secure network from your machine to blogspot server to email server to my computer.
This blog URL is now https://www.dkoffice.in/

Information War, Personal Security and Me

Too much of anything is just bad. You cannot consume too much in your tummy, you cannot consume too much in your mind. I was never a social media person because if I don't know a person how can I interact and share my personal interests. However, at one point I worked for a social media company and created many accounts, written many social media guides and published online.
The noise that social media creates gives an illusion that you can make big things out of it. Though I never spend many hours on social media but I started sharing content on it, on and off, and with certainty I can say my own sites performed better without social sharing.
From my experiences I found going on many social channels means dilution of ideas. Because I am individual and not a company I cannot go to many social channels and create content. I don't have budget to appoint someone who can work for me on social media. If you are individual blogger like me and creating many social channels for sure…

Is push mail notification a non sense

Automation is good but is it reliable too?
For very long time Android phone was alien to me. But considering public demand of SEND ME Whatsapp rants lastly I invested in this idiot gadget.
Not more than 24 hours and I realized it's a complete waste of money given if you do not take too many photos and if you do not work in an android environment. But anyway hole was already burnt in my pocket.
Only one thing become easy for me that is reading email. I kept only emails on and relied on email notifications. However today no mails popped out. I thought may be everyone celebrating India's Republic Day.
I text message to CEO of reputed company regarding a pending email answer. He is a busy fellow. You can get him easily. Since matter was important I thought to give a text message.
Out of nothing I opened my email and found his reply which he did early morning.
SHOCKED.
Lesson learnt check your mail box manually before texting.
