Behind the Blogger Tag

Hi !

I saw this particular tag on Emer @alittlehazebookblog last week and thought it would be exciting one to do! I thank Emer for this interesting blog activity.

THE RULES:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Answer all the questions down below
  • Pingback to the creator: Ellyn @Allonsythornraxx
  • Nominate 5+ bloggers you’d like to know more about to do this tag

THE QUESTIONS:

1. WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING AND WHY HAVE YOU KEPT BLOGGING?

I am very new to blogging and started it in March, 2020. I have been thinking about doing this since long but the idea of creating a blog site was really difficult for me, or so I used to think. But one fine day I sat with my laptop and got it done in mere 3 hours! Yes, it was quite quick for me since I am no computer geek.

Since then I have been continuing to blog and write an article each week. I am loving the idea of reading other blogs, penning down my thoughts on everything that I want to talk about. It gives vent to my feelings and my ideas about things I believe in. Moreover, blogging has taught me the essential things about technology and computers and I am quite thrilled to learn newer things each day.

2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TYPE OF BLOG POST TO WRITE?

I started this blog to write about life in general with topics ranging from, travel, culture, literature, women, motherhood etc. But since I am a book nerd by heart, I have recently been giving more time to reading books. So my upcoming posts would be more on book reviews and literature in particular.

I also love writing about my travels since I do that very often.

3. WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE FAVOURITE BLOG POSTS?

Umm?? Since there are not many posts on my blog yet, but still I can name a couple of my favorite ones.

One of my favorite post is about my recent trip to Jaipur when I visited The Rambagh Palace. It was a fun day-one day trip and we celebrated my hubby’s birthday there. So yeah, I love going back to and watching the pictures that we clicked there.

Another one is, where I penned down my thoughts on meeting my favorite author, story teller, Ruskin Bond, when I visited Mussoorie. It was nothing less than a dream come true!

And the third one is not specifically any one of my remaining posts, but, all those posts which inspire me and interest me when I read them. The blogging community is making me learn things more than I could learn from books!

4. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO TO RELAX?

Relaxing is a hypothetical term now in lockdown, as I have been managing a lot on my own besides my 4 year old girl who keeps me on my heels. But yes there are quite a few things for which I squeeze in some hours of the day.

I love reading, reading and a lot of it. Novels are my favorite, especially detective and crime fiction.

I love painting. I have been coloring since a few days now.

I am also trying my hands at cooking ‘at next level’ ! lol! yeah, because there is more to cooking here in India besides the normal everyday meals.

I also love writing short stories (secretly)!! 😉

5. WHAT ARE THREE OF YOUR FAVOURITE THINGS?

Reading Agatha Christie

Reading post colonial literature

Writing Stories.

6. WHAT ARE YOUR PROUDEST BLOGGING MOMENTS?

It was when within a single day of publishing my post I received 187 views on it! It was really a proud moment for me since till then I wasn’t quite active on other social media platforms and didn’t know much about promoting my posts.

I also felt nice when I hit a 100 followers on my website. It was like going beyond the ‘friends and family’ subscribers list.

7. WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF BLOGGING?

  • Reading
  • Painting
  • Playing with my daughter
  • Watching Historical/period dramas on Netflix (I have binged watched The Outlander, Mary Queen of Scots, The Crown, Vikings etc.)

8. DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY IN THREE WORDS

  • Honest
  • Thoughtful
  • Sensitive

9. WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE PET PEEVES?

  • Scattered and messy house
  • People smoking near me
  • Noisy and loud-mouthed people

10. WHAT’S SOMETHING YOUR FOLLOWERS DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?

That I was, till recently, quite dumb at using social media sites like Instagram, twitter and such others.

Either I used to google things to learn about them or ask friends to help me with stuff! And here I am, learning the skill of blogging and coming back to it again and again and not giving up!

And that is it for this tag!

I nominate : Chloe @lifethroughmydarkbrowneyes, @vincent Ehindro, @relationships, @pradyumnathaware, and @BBHfiction for the challange.

If you would like to do this for yourself then consider yourself tagged and please pingback to this post so I can read and compare your answers.
