About Me

Hi there! This is Umana! I am a student of Advertising at the University of Tennessee. This is my introductory post for my travel blog ‘Umini’s Itchy Feet!’ I admit I have got ‘itchy feet’, meaning I have a very strong desire and an irresistible impulse to travel. Yes, I have been bitten by the ‘travel bug’ indeed!

I come from a beautiful country named Bangladesh — the world’s largest delta, which is situated in the region of Southeast Asia. I started to travel outside my home country Bangladesh when I was only nine years old. Traveling has always been my passion. I chose to write travel blogs for my ‘Social Media’ course since I realized I should pick a topic that I’d only be truly passionate about writing!

Currently I am at the United States of America since I am studying ‘Advertising’ here at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. I am actually doing my second masters here. I love Advertising and that’s what has brought me here! Intriguing ads are like ‘clever pieces of puzzles’ to me! I had a little bit of working experience in advertising and public relations at my home country long time back when I used to work for the hotel Sheraton. Later on, once I joined the academia, my co-curricular activities in addition to my usual teaching responsibilities included developing collateral and web content for the University of Asia Pacific in Dhaka.

My goal is to become a communication specialist and/or educator for a growing organization/institution, with potential promotion to higher levels. I feel anybody who teaches any subject should always keep abreast with the latest trends, especially when it comes to social media and marketing. One can do a good personal branding with social media since it actually is a virtual window to the world!

I have been fortunate enough to travel a whole lot throughout the world! People say that I am ‘well-traveled’. My travel experiences abroad include many different countries that I had been to, often many a times in almost all of the countries! The countries that I have traveled until now include: Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Bangkok, United Arab Emirates, India, Turkey and last but not the least, the United States of America.

I am enjoying what I have been learning in the Social Media class. I really am fascinated about learning by doing approach in this course. It is a fabulous way of learning so many new things every single day in this course! This is absolutely amazing.

This blog ‘Umini’s Itchy Feet’, as the idiom in the title of the blog suggests, is about my wanderlust – my interesting travel experiences around the world! I have started this blog very recently as a partial course requirement of ‘Social Media’ yet now that I am enjoying all that ‘blogging’ has to offer, I do believe I shall be continuing with this blog even when I am through with this commitment! I am an avid learner and I have been learning a whole lot from my passion for wanderlust!

I look forward to your comments and questions if you have any of my blog posts. I promise I shall be posting three times a week for you! I hope you would enjoy my blog ‘Umini’s Itchy Feet!’ I shall be catching up with you all at least three times a week. Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you again soon! Take care, bye!

    one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks?
    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any
    help is very much appreciated.
    a806324a484dc4186ae32a1435b592c7

    1. Hi! I used to get a lot of spams. Then I installed the “Stop Spam Comments” plugin offered by WordPress. Although spam hasn’t stopped totally, yet it reduced about 85-90% of spam comments. Hope this helps!

  7. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.

    to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to know

  9. I think what you published made a ton of sense. However, what about this?
    suppose you composed a catchier title? I am not saying your information is not good.,
    however suppose you added a post title that makes people want more?
    I mean About Me | Umini’s Itchy Feet is kinda boring.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write article headlines to get viewers
    interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
    a806324a484dc4186ae32a1435b592c7

    web.
    a806324a484dc4186ae32a1435b592c7

  13. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has
    a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it
    looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help protect against
    content from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.
    a806324a484dc4186ae32a1435b592c7

    1. Hi! I guess it’s quite impossible to keep track if someone would be stealing your write-ups. All I can say is that: I stay true to myself when quoting from someone’s work. It is good to be honest yourself and give credit to the originators by giving proper credit to the original creators. If anybody resorts to plagiarism, then it is his/her personal choice of dishonesty. All I can tell is that those who do it without any qualms would never reach very far! :-) So don’t worry; be honest to yourself, appreciate other people’s work by giving them proper credit, and move ahead! :-)

  14. I have read so many content regarding the blogger
    lovers however this piece of writing is truly a pleasant
    paragraph, keep it up.
    a806324a484dc4186ae32a1435b592c7

    your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
    a806324a484dc4186ae32a1435b592c7

  16. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets
    I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I
    look forward to your new updates.
    a806324a484dc4186ae32a1435b592c7

    1. Hi! I’m so sorry for replying so late! The comments actually piled up before I could finally manage time to answer! I faintly remember working on something like that while I started to blog via the tumblr platform. I don’t exactly remember if that was hootsuite that made it possible to automatically re-tweet and post in Facebook. However, I think you explore these following links that have tips and tricks about widgets/tools for auto-sharing:
