How Paperblog spoils your hardwork on your blog

How Paperblog spoils your hardwork on your blog

When you start your blog, or your full fledged website, it's obvious that you try for gaining traffic by going into forums and sharing your posts there. There are also several blog directories which guarantee you to provide traffic and we novice bloggers submit our blogs there without going through the detailed terms and conditions.

Paperblog is one such website, which works a magazine site, and provides content from your blog or website which you submit to them. They don't provide their our content and serve content from their members who chose to submit their blogs or websites to them. They ask you to submit your blog to them after registering and then in form of feeds they will take away your posts and publish on their platform.

Such a selfish motive by Paperblog where they don't need to work on creating their own content but thrive on your work, your precious hard work which you did. Now since they have collected massive content from their different members, they are just serving them on their website, with minimal or no substantial credit to original content writer. They have put up a lot of ad networks on their website and are earning  from the work which you did.

The link that they provide, a link which is hardly visible on your post on their website, is also not a do follow link which might benefit you. Instead, they can create a pain for you when you start seeing that the content which you originally created is coming up in second or third page in Google search result but the same content on Paperblog is showing up on the first page in Google Search Results.

I was checking for Plagiarism if any content on this website is found duplicate or not. I was amazed to see very good bunch of articles coming up as plagiarised. When I detail checked, I found that it was Paperblog where my content was popping up and my own content this was is said to be duplicate. And as I mentioned, Paperblog's DA(Domain Authority) and PA(Page Authority) are much better than my own website here, and hence their Google page ranking is also better.

I am sure any content creator won't like this. I agree that it was my mistake that I did by submitting my website to them. But once I learned what my mistake was, I tried to correct it up. Although I didn't remember what password I used to create my account there, I tried my best to recover the password so that I can login and delete my account. Somehow, after recovering my access on their website, I logged in to Paperblog. To my surprise I found that I can't delete my account or deactivate it. Great!

So, here is another punch strategy from Paperblog. They won't allow its users to login and delete or deactivate their accounts themselves. You can only see your posts that are present there, as an outcome of your mistake to submit your blog to them.

Upon searching a lot, I found that I need to 'Contact' them through their contact form, mentioning that I want to delete my Paperblog account and then they will delete from their backend. Amazing.

Till now, I have dropped five such requests from their contact form to delete my account and all my posts there which are originally mine and were shared here, on this website. They haven't responded yet. And I have very faint hope that they will reply back ever or delete my account. The reason being their social account profiles, Facebook and Twitter, are not so active these days. I should not even use words like 'these days' because their social accounts are not showing any activity for last two years.

Google should take action on such websites which are hampering the original content creators and are gaining bunch of profits from the hard work of their members.

I have messaged them on their Facebook page and also shared tweets tagging their twitter handle, but I have not received any response so far.

This was a mistake I did, and currently I am not sure how I will be able to correct it. In case you are also a new bee, and if by any chance you are deciding to submit your blog or website to them, then friend pause your self. With my experience I can only share that they are evil and will make profits from your work.

The Wind and The Candle

This is the love that pulls you towards emptiness, Angel.
It has done so to me...
Longing... It's like a void, dearth of darkness spread across
On inner walls of my heart.
Of an uncountable universes there
Where mystic holes black keep chanting of timeless desires;
Yearning for lascivious infinitude;
Where candles lit by you in my hopes never die.

The two of us, you and me Angel,
 Who could never meet,
As we were oceans apart tied in our priorities of life;
I wonder why I wasn't your priority.
I keep fighting, though tired, but still gasping 
For affection all the time.
The Wind and the Candle...
They lie in their death bed  relaxed, so lost in this emptiness,
In the void of darkness,
On inner walls of my heart.

Teesta... A longing heart for Darjeeling

The messenger clouds carry a bagful of sad messages,
The sad heart turns into fog
And the restless heart turns into Teesta...

The sad messages come to the land of hills and forests
In square boxes;
Please let the heart stay as it is,
As it reads the sad messages enthusiastically...

The clouds carry a map to guide the messenger clouds,
And the twisting roads lead to his house surrounded by gardens.
At the end of the garden lies the main gate
And the rocking chair in the Verandah...

A small strip of sun ray falls on the carpet laid on the bed
The messenger cloud empties his bags there.
The messenger clouds carry a bagful of sad messages,
The sad heart turns into fog
And the restless heart turns into Teesta...

The stage is all set.
For the courage to play
And defeat those lies within
Prying and proclaiming to be truth
Against his lord's pray.
The courage has to act strong
To make the fear go
And kill the ominous thong.
No, not just wait
And continue to contemplate
But to act, enact and direct
The righteousness state.
Determined against all odds
He now stands bold and tall
To fight and to win
Over his evils in all forms.

Music in my Playlist

The music as it flows into ears, puts into a slumber where eyes are awake; but the mind has taken a leap into memories.

Memories unfold, as if someone has played a movie on VHS; and characters have started their play, some good and some bad.

I don’t see myself, but I see I lived those moments; having whirled and danced on the tunes as if somebody made me do so.

Each track on the playlist, bears a story of its own; stories that I wanted to write my way but were re-tailored by the destiny.

Bidding Bye to 2017 | Welcoming 2018...

The year is about to end, at what note its going to end that’s up to us how we perceive. What you get to see with the flow of time, good or bad, happiness or sadness, it all depends on our perception. I stress this fact, that it won’t be incorrect to say that each year goes by like a neutral phase, with no bias for inclination towards raising you higher or putting you soiled in ashes. It’s just our experiences in this phase and how we have perceived it, and accordingly we decide how the year had been for us. But, the fact is, the year went by was just the same for each one of us. What it brought differently for us is our experiences. Everything will get soiled, but never will our experiences. Hence each year, the year gifts us our experiences in different forms, so that we get that special gift which is imperishable.

The year 2017 had loads of experiences for me. I thank this year for all that. It made me more learned, it made me more enlightened, and definitely it made me more strong. If you are strong, you gain the efficacy to withstand further experiences. What those experiences will come out to be, that again depend on our perception.

This year, I had the opportunity to buy for myself PlayStation 4. This was something was something which I longed for since my childhood. I was also lucky to have my hands on my own first MacBook. These dreams are small, but it gave me loads of happiness. I thank the God, and my parents, without the help of whom I could not have achieved these small dreams into reality. I am lucky to have such a beautiful destiny, such a beautiful family. I want to live forever for them to serve them with the best that I can. But the most significant thing that I did in 2017, was to save the life of a dog pup. He was so little, and almost drowning in the deep drains of Kestopur, Kolkata, nearby my rented house. People passed by, took no notice of his wails and cries, which were intermixed with bustles of this city. I heard, but somehow pretended to myself that I didn’t like others. But then, my heart compelled me to go forward, and bring that little pup out from the drain, where he was fighting to breathe, unable to get out on its own from such a deep drain. I pulled the pup out, and he was there looking at me, with those thankful but tired eyes, shaking his body and spitting off the killing spree that went inside him.

It takes so much little to help others. If you have evaluated that the help you are going to offer is not going to hamper your own self any bit, don’t hesitate, and move forward to offer your helping hand.

I know the year 2018 will also have loads of experiences to offer me. I am happily prepared for it. But the one and only thing that I have put up in my resolution is not to leave my creativity, not to leave those things that I enjoy doing out from my regular work, and I will keep my humorous side intact.

Here is a small clip, where Mr. Shah Rukh Khan is giving a motivational speech at Maulana Azad Urdu University. Towards the end of 2017, I came across this video and his speech motivated me a lot. I hope others will find it motivating as well. The one highlighting line from his speech that I would like to quote: 

“ Zindagi me kabhi na kabhi, kahin na kahin, aisa mukam ayega jab aap akela feel karenge. Ho sakta hai dukh ka samay bhi aye. Us waqt apki creativity hi apki sabse achi dost hogi. Duniya usko mane, ya na mane. ”

His life as a Shadow

His life as a shadow… The part of his life which wandered to find its existence in light. Each day, with the Sun in the sky, he was there, with its intensity dependent on the gleaming source of light. He crossed by every road, and people kept the distance, afraid of their sacred quintessence to get polluted. The shadow knew the only sacred quintessence that ever existed in this world was Love. The love in people’s heart would never intersect the path that shadow followed. The shadow would contemplate, over-think, and when he could no longer conclude a definite reason, he would get drowned in glasses of darkness.

He felt safer there, in those glasses of darkness, as darkness numbed his feelings and prevented him to seek Love. Love is a thirst for him, to be loved, to be embraced in warmth of arms, to be felt over the hearty bosom. But who could have explained him, that shadows can never be embraced, they can never be hugged… While the cat’s crossing the road before sanity of love in people’s heart is blamed a bad omen, the shadow’s urge to be loved was treated as a disease, that potentially had the efficacy to disturb the balance of love in the world.

The shadow had a theory, that this world is fixated on one of the pan of a universal balance, on the other pan sits love. This universal balance is under control of the almighty, and love is a blessing that the almighty has gifted people with. Love in each of the people’s heart accumulated together, in form of a big ball, sits on the other pan of the universal balance and maintains the scale to neutral position. If ever someone shared their love with the shadow, the scale of this balance will fluctuate, and the pan where this world sits will be endangered. People don’t wish that to happen, and want to keep their home safe.

The shadow questioned himself, if sharing love with him endangered the world’s existence on the balance, then why not grow more love, the extra part, and make that for the parched shadow. He couldn’t find the answer, and he soaked himself in the glass of darkness to relax, to numb his senses and feelings.
The shadow feels himself complete in the darkness, healed, and relaxed. Though still thirsty, but he feasts on the never ending darkness, instead of Love that he longs for. The light discriminates him, for the odd that he has within. This is the story of his life as a 'Shadow'.
