My Blog Story.

On the 24th of August,2016 I got a text from my friend Sanjita on our Whatsapp group, it was a link to her blog. A few months before this, I was telling Sanjita about how I wanted to start a blog and why I wanted to. Seeing her go for it, actually made me think and on the 25th of AugΒ my blog was created.

My orignal intention for the blog was photography. Because I love it, and I think it’s the best way to express things. But as time passed , I began to write longer posts along my pictures, which were motivational,inspirational and my followers seemed to enjoy them. I’ve always loved writing and so I decided to include my thoughts/opinions and stories on this blog. The response I get from all you is absolutely stunning and I am thrilled that you enjoy reading what I write.

I began with just my friends and family reading my blog 7 months back, then a few others, and a few more. Now there are 156 people who read my blog from all over the world. I also have had the opportunity to make amazing friends here which I never thought I could do. This blog is something I love and I appreciate all of you who read it. Especially Mom , Dad and Sanjita because you three give me the best advice and are my best critiques.

Advice to new bloggers.

  1. Don’t be afraid to be yourself : I have many posts on my blog encouraging people to accept their uniqueness because its something very very important to do. The more true you are on your blog, the more people will enjoy reading it
  2. Make friends: Don’t just say “Thanks” when the same person comments on a ton of your posts, try becoming friends , trust me it will pay off. Also get on the Community Pool. {I’m an ambivert saying this so it’s}
  3. Broaden your horizon: If you began your blog on just a specific topic, chances are after a few months you’ll be out of ideas, its great to write on different topics that reflect your own personality and don’t stick to just one topic, broaden your horizon to many more.
  4. Take use of the daily prompts.: I highly recommend doing this because when you’re out of ideas, daily prompts save the day. Can you believe one of my whole story series began because of this?

      1. No. I haven’t. I usually read any series at one go and these days I hardly have the time. So, I didn’t start it yet though it was on my list.
        Okay, I will. Bas not right now. Maybe at night after 11-12. Is that okay?
