My blogging stint started in the year 2010. I remember that the whole idea or the zeal for creating a blog was just to document my recipes in one place. Since I’m a big foodie and also like cooking along with experimenting with different recipes, I thought nothing better than a blog to keep all my recipes in one place – and also I can share the same easily with my friends. That time I was not very much onto the social media and even social media was not like it is since past 3-4 years. However, I somehow managed to share my blog posts with me friends and family. I remember, every time I prepare a dish I used to make note of the ingredients, the method and click a picture to make it complete. Slowly I started to build upon it. However, I started losing interest as the time pass by and gradually I lost touch to my blog itself for about 5 years, till 2016.
I always had a habit of reading, especially during my commute to and from office in cab. I came across few blog posts narrating the fun of blogging. My big inspiration was my first guest post for Romila’s blog novemberschild.com. I replied to her one of the tweets about guest blogging expressing my interest of doing a guest post for her blog. She instantly responded and that was the resume of my blogging stint. This is my third guest post for her blog. I have gradually picked up speed and have done quite a few posts in last few months for my own blog. Moreover, I regained the momentum and boosted my confidence of going for a custom domain name for my blog and also self-hosting my blog.
Now I’m getting more consistent on my blogging activity and have taken part in the #BarAThon edition 2 challenge. It was really a fun and I got to read many nice and informative blog posts. The comments on my posts acted as a fuel to carry on with the challenge and complete it, which I eventually did. Now that I’ve again resumed and catching up pace I don’t want to lose it and will continue to curate posts on my blog.
