How to Post to Blogger and Finally UTF-8 Version!
Dear Users,

I’m not dead, as you can notice, neither this project!!

I finally discovered a way to fix the problem posting to Blogger blogs, thank’s to Santosh Mishra from India.

He discovered that Google has not closed the API running on beta.blogger.com server so please follow his instructions for a new account or simply :

1) Click on your account name on the status bar
2) Change Blog Tool to “(Custom)”
3) Change Host to: beta.blogger.com
4) Click OK

I will release until sunday (21-oct) a new version of w.bloggar with (finally) UTF-8 support, and will correct the cms.ini to point Blogger to the beta.blogger.com server.

Stay Tuned!

Version 4.01 Released
As promised last thursday, w.bloggar v4.01 is now released with UTF-8 support and working with Blogger.com again, however I have to inform to Blogger.com users that Google has disabled the 2.0 API so post titles is not available. I will be working to implement the new Google Data API so you will not only be able to post with titles but with all new Blogger.com features, for example tags.

To enable UTF-8 support just edit your Account Options (press F10) and mark the UTF-8 checkbox.

How To Get Rid Of A Loan Smartly

Loans include personal loans, education loans, car loans or credit card loans (the most expensive one of course!). But irrespective of its nature or stringency, a loan is a matter of concern. The faster it is paid off, the better it is for mental well-being. Snowballing a loan over an existing often leads to poor financial conditions. Hence here are some easy ways you can consider in order to get rid of a loan

Drafting A Financial Plan

The first step you must take when you are in a hurry to pay off loans is to relax. Relax and consider with a calm mind how you can arrange your finances to the best of your ability. Draft your financial plan. Jot down few important points as follows:

·         Salary, taxes, bonus and other incentives.

·         The fixed expenses that you have to bear every month like rent, water bill, electricity bill and internet bill.

·         Now coin your variable expenses. Try to make a reduction on that front.

·         Consider all the luxurious expenses you are planning. Put a stop to that.

After taking the above points into consideration approximate your finances and draft your savings. Question yourself about your savings and your possible savings amount if structural plans like cutting down variable expenses are followed. Thus prepare a planner which will enable you to assess your financial capacity. Now consider your options of loan repayment from your savings keeping all investments and insurance policies in mind. Drafting a financial plan will help repay your loans in a steadfast and secure manner.

It is also important to keep in mind that it is only if you repay our existing loan with good credits, you will be qualifying for a loan when you need next.

Organizing Your Monetary Assets and Opting For Payment via Instalments

Loans of personal nature like home loans, car loans or any other debt bonds usually bear a high-interest amount with them. Thus in order to pay off such loans, proper organization of monetary assets is required. Maintain a documentation of all your loans in a proper manner and consider your financial scenario. This will give you a clear conception of the options you can consider. One of the most feasible options is contacting your lender bank and considering the EMI option. If you pay off your loans on monthly basis, then the principle for the upcoming payment reduces bringing down the interest amount. Thus the installment-based payment model will but relatively less pressure financially than paying a huge amount at once. Moreover, managing finances will be easier if this option is considered.

Convert Existing Loans To A More Secure Option

The loan of an insecure type which demands high-interest rates should first be converted to a secure option. Securing a loan is a risky business, but easier to pay off within a short duration. You can consider securing the loan against your car or other assets that are financially in a stable position. This conversion will allow you to reduce your interest rate to a flexible amount. You can extend the tenure by coaxing your lender tactfully. This will enable you to either manage your finances or pay off the loan at once or you can also pay it off on a monthly basis. The negative side of secure loans can arise during an emergency period when there is a sudden requirement of money. Thus a borrower must always assess the entire situation before considering the conversion. An individual should be assessing the scenario based largely on the financial situation and the ability to repay a loan.
