With the start of this month May, I am starting a new, weekly series, on my blog. In it I am featuring 20 bloggers for 20 Sundays starting from today till September 2017.
The Blogger to be featured today is Bhavish Shah
Can you tell me a little about yourself and your blog – mentioning something known and unknown to the readers?
My name’s Bhavish aka The Gud1. I just completed my Diploma in Engineering and have been writing for the last 3 years i.e. since I started my diploma. I won’t call myself a blogger; I’m just a teenager who loves sharing his experiences with the awesome people out on the internet. I’m a freelance photographer, graphic designer and writer by passion. I write about Technology, Travel and sometimes share my personal ideas through The Gud1.
Tell me about some of the people you’ve met while working on your blog or through blogging communities?
I’m lucky enough to meet so many people who share the same passion as I do. Best part of me blogging has been meeting people who actually read my blogs. Meeting these people feels awesome, the way they share their experiences is just heartwarming!
What do you do when you aren’t working on your blog? You can tell me about your usual day routine.
When I’m not writing you’ll mainly find me completing the assignments I get in college. Reading books has always been something I look forward to at the end of the day. I usually have a book by my bedside. As I said before I’m also a photographer and a graphic designer and that’s what you’ll find me doing in my free time.
Everyone has a favourite/least favourite post. Tell me about your best and worst post and why?
My best post? Actually I’m never satisfied by what I write. I always feel there’s something missing. But if I were to choose my favourite post has to be “A Letter to Myself”. 2017 has been a tough year for me, had to deal with depression and this was that one post that I wrote that made me realise my worth! My worst post was something I had written for a brand (which of course can’t be mentioned) because it was something full of praise for the worst brand I had worked with. I had it live for like about 48 hours and later deleted it because I just could stand it. Though the views were great actually one of the best, but it didn’t satisfy me much.
Name some of the bloggers – at least 3 of your favourites, whom you look up to and why?
I love reading to these 3 bloggers a lot – Ajay Jain, Harsh Agarwal and Malini Agarwal aka MissMalini. Ajay Jain through Kunzum offers an amazing travel guide with compelling pictures and videos. Kunzum Travel Cafe is an initiative which gives readers an opportunity to share their travel stories. Harsh Agarwal is the guy behind ShoutMeLoud. He runs various niche specific blogs, I would suggest you to check out his personal blog DenHarsh.com for more details on him. Okay so now don’t judge me I’m a self-confessed Bollywood buff and who could cover Bollywood better than MissMalini.
Tell me about your proudest achievement(s)? (Related to Blogging)
My proudest achievement has to be the love I get from the readers. I’d like to share this achievement though it isn’t that great it is one of the most amazing thing anyone could do for me. One reader actually anonymously sent me a gift which contained of a pair of headphones I still use. The package was not labelled and shipped directly to me through flipkart. I still haven’t been successful to find that reader but the search is on!
If someone was interested in blogging, what would be a few things you would suggest?
The driving force to make a blog successful is “Passion”. There are like millions of steps mentioned all over the internet on how to become a successful blogger. I’d say don’t follow them. Follow Your Heart. Your heart has the right way to become a successful blogger. Do what you love, Be Original!
I am sure you know me as a blogger or your friend on social media or may be even as a person in real so how would you rate my writings and tell me your honest opinion on me – this would serve as a testimonial.
I may not know much about you but through your writings and tweets you are the smartest and boldest person I may know. You’re also the most straightforward person I got connected to and honestly love your tweets. I ain’t that active on twitter but whenever I check out twitter I make sure to check out your twitter page.
