Getting more people to visit your blog is quite attainable but making them a regular visitor of your platter might not seem that easy. For that you need to play the trick, you need to lure them.
The underlying idea is simple you reward your visitor with something when he comes, and if the reward seems to be interesting enough he’s bound to bounce back for more. Now it comes to the rewards and I am pretty sure there are hundreds of options, including party casino and other goodies.
The installation is fairly simple on most of the platforms including Blogger and WordPress. after installation a “Rewards” tabs appear in your blog which when clicked by the user opens up a dialog offering the rewards.
You choose where to keep that button and you choose your own rewards.
Choose or make your rewards, set the number of points needed and you’re done!
You can also offer a one-time give away offer to your readers.
The last step is copying the generated code snippet and pasting it in the HTML mode of your blog post.

Recently we discussed about Rockmelt, a web browser that integrates with your facebook and twitter accounts and makes sharing easy, but for those of you who are in pure love with their cute browsers and those who would like to adopt RockMelt only after there are no more bugs left, we have just found something great and interesting.
Shareholic, the simplest way to share something online, might it be an article, or an image or the webpage you are working on with friends on digg, del.icio.us, facebook, friendfeed, Google bookmarks, magnolia, mixx, reddit, stumbleupon, tumblr, twitter and many more websites.
Its an add-on that creates a small shareaholic button either on your navigation menu or the address bar and every time you click it, it displays an organized menu which lets you choose the services to share upon. You can customize the menu either to just display your customized websites or to change their order. Sharing is simple and clean, the concerned dialog appears and you can now choose to proceed or not
Shareaholic is believed to influence general user activity on diffrent websites making sharing easier which will increase web traffic. It also keeps a track on how many times the web page you’re on has been dugg or saved to del.icio.us.

Its not just another web-browser that claims to be faster and safer, its build for sharing, based on Chromium (the open source project used in Google Chrome). The catch, it integrates your regular cyberspace and social media interactions. RockMelt makes sharing and chatting easier with an optional facebook sidebar on the left hand side of the browser. It integrates with twitter as well. The latest youtube app makes it possible to watch YouTube videos right there.
The address bar has a big share button that lets you share the current web address on your facebook/twitter logins.
The browsers signs into your facebook account every time you start the browser making it easier for you to share things, check status messages of different friends, have a little chit chat and update your own status.
Now what might interest my fellow geeks is the real cool name behind it, Marc Andreessen, yes the founder of Netscape who himself lost the war of browsers but i think RockMelt might just be the future of web browsing. For now, its just another super fast (thanks to chromium and Google’s V8) web browser meant for facebook and twitter addicts.

Firefox is undoubtedly the best browser and to make it more user friendly, developers all around the world continue to add value to Firefox. Just a couple of days back I came across two add-ons that I would like to share with you all. Here they are:
This is a very great tool to convert text to speech. The best thing about this is it is too simple to use. I have also written one post on converting the text to audio. Here is that post. But this one is different, one just have to select the text that one wishes to convert to audio, and then just click the button. You will hear about the audio and even have the option to download it in .mp3 format. It is developed by an Indian Vikram Joshi.
Another amazing feature of this add-on is its vulnerability to read text in many languages. Below is the screenshot showing the options :
But the thing which I don’t like is that it can’t be used offline. But I’m sure that the developers are working on it and soon we can convert the text to audio offline also. But this is not the thing that will stop you from downloading this add-on. Here is the link to download Text To Speech.
Another great add-on that I came across is Fission. This add-on makes your browser Safari style and makes it more stylish. This will show the loading of the page in the address bar and change the cosmetics of your browser. Beautiful, compact and stylish are the words that are best used to describe the add-on.
But this add-on has a bug. It is not compatible with all the themes. Therefore, one has to check the compatibility before using. Here is the link to download the Fission.
