Q: Welcome to Speakbindas. Tell us since when blogging has been a part of your life? Was there any motive or inspiration as a backbone of it?

  • A: I started blogging in 2006. My daughters were born 7 weeks preterm and that was the trigger to start blogging so that I could connect with parents in similar positions. I did all the classic blogging mistakes people do. Shared photos, names, location and everything with readers. When I realized my mistake, I deleted that blog. I still like blogging, so this time, I started smartly with a pen name and no personal photos.

Q: What is your blog all about? Which topics you cover there? Is that you alone running/maintaining the blog, or have a team?

  • A: My blog is about self love and developing self worth. I want it to be informative, motivational, fun and show case of my writing skills. Topics covered are Family, poetry, photography, blogging tips. My aim was to make it a group blog but the idea has not taken off yet.

Q.: How important is it for the blogger to interact with their readers? Do you respond to all the comments that you receive?

  • A: I used to before but not any more. Instead I just visit their blog and leave a comment. I feel that is more high yield. Everyone likes comments on their blog.

Q: What are the present statistics for your blog, i.e. number of daily visitors, visitors geographical status etc.?

Q: What was the happiest and gloomiest moment of your life?

  • A: Happiest was when my daughters were born. Gloomiest was when my dad died.

Q: Say, you are sponsored to travel to 3 world destinations, where you need not to worry about costs for food, hotel or anything. Which destinations would you pick up, and why? Would you like to take someone along with you? If yes, whom?
