2010 in review

Received the below from WordPress regarding the performance of The Pulpit as a blog. While I was rather down that I, as a blogger, had not really done much, it seems WordPress thinks otherwise.

But reality is that I have much more potential as a writer but I am not giving enough time to writing. Hence, the quality (and quantity) coming out is too little.

I pray that Allah (SWT) gives me barakah in my time in 2011 and gives me the ability to better manage my time so that I may focus on my writing.

In other news, the fan page of From The Pulpit is going to become inactive soon and the a new fan page for DiscoMaulvi has been created. You are requested to please become a fan of this new page. This step is creating room for Insha’Allah some new developments in the life of DiscoMaulvi as a writer. What is it? Stay tuned.

Finally, I would like to say a special thank you to Dr Awab Alvi, AKA Teeth Maestro, for his site being one of the top referrers to The Pulpit.
