GET TO KNOW – Anupriya Gupta

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOU WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START BLOGGING?

Umm… to be honest there were a couple of factors.

I have this innate keeda to explore and keep trying different things. I switched over from my IT job to a Human Resources profile. While working, I started mentoring MBA aspirants for grooming themselves for Group Discussions and Interviews. I have also worked as an admissions consultant with some 100 odd profiles to mentor them with resumes and SOPs for applying for admission to universities world over.

Then, while in my last job, I wrote fan-fictions and shared them on a forum. It was a couple of months before my manager found out about that. Now my boss also happens to be a blogger in the Food & Photography domain, so he was riding high on the idea of blogging. When I conceived my second child late in 2015, he suggested that given I already have a way with words, why don’t I start documenting my thoughts through a blog.

Before that, I had tried to work out a blog that would be about my professional domain, but for reason it did not shape up. So this time encourage by my friend philosopher guide boss, I thought, this writing bug keeps coming back to me – let me take the plunge. Also I realised that after I have my second baby, I would be leaving my job. So why not do something different. And thus came into existence MommyTincture.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING FOR?

I wrote my first post somewhere around February, 2016.  Back then I was mostly stuck up for content. I am not someone, who goes by a script. I have to feel for something very strongly, before I can pen down anything. So I struggled much with content for over a year. My post frequency fluctuated from once a week to once a month or even more. I have only become regular with my posts since September, 2017. That’s when I participated in the MyFriendAlexa campaign with Blogchatter. I finally had some audience to which I could reach out. It motivated me and helped me get more serious about my content.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BLOGGING?

No entry barriers. Blogging is for everyone, who is computer and internet literate. It’s amazing that passion for words and ideas is the only key pre-requisite to get set going. And once you get a hang of it, you can then get into the nuances of beautifying your blog, reaching out to more audience through social media channels, seeking collaborations etc.

WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES BESIDE BLOGGING?

With two extremely dependent for pretty much everything boys ( 5.5 & 2.5 years) in the tow, a blog to maintain and a large Marwari family (immediate and extended) to cater to, I hardly have any time for a hobby. Yet, I manage to read a lot in whatever free time I get. I even got my sister to gift me a kindle, so that I could read on the go, without the fear of my boys’ tearing away my paperbacks. I am a sucker for romance and have read around 30 romance chic-lits during 2018 itself (cringes at my own achievement …) Jokes apart, I happen to have gotten married to a mother-in-law who is an out and out DIY person. So we also spend considerable amount of time, making rakhis, costumes for our idols in the home temple, trying out new dishes in the kitchen etc. Life remains exciting that ways. We always have something to look forward to.

WHAT TIPS WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW BLOGGERS?

I have repeatedly said that blogging in this decade has picked up a huge commercial momentum, which is a good thing as it brings numerous avenues for able people to generate income. But I see there is a lot more urgency to gain better ranks, improved PAs & DAs and other statistics. It is all good, in-fact excellent to aspire for these things, but in the entire scheme of things, let’s not forget the essence of blogging i.e. a channel to express ones voice. Follow certain basic rules of technology and social media engagement and keep generating good content. All the statistics, paid assignments etc. will follow. Also do not undermine the significance of a community. A community like in every other sphere of life, helps you root yourself to what you have set out to achieve through your blog. For example – I have always dreamt of writing a fiction novel. But I didn’t know if I was up to the task. I wrote one manuscript and sat on it, while I participated in the AtoZ Challenge with Blogchatter with another set of short stories. This was later published as an ebook with the Blogchatter eBook Carnival and received appreciative reviews. It boosted my confidence and thus I pulled out my earlier manuscript to go the publishing way. I am now very soon coming out with the paperback version of this fiction romance drama. So yes, the blogging community helped me gauge my abilities and take according course of action. And of course you gain friends such as Romila of Novemberschild in the online world. Though I made a late start, but today I am really glad that I am a part of this large hearted Blogging community. I only hope that I gain a heart as large 😉

GET TO KNOW – Matthew Elliott

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOU WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START BLOGGING?

My grandad was a journalist back in the day when it was shorthand and typewriters (plus whiskey and cigarettes, but that’s another story ;-)) so I’ve always had a passion for writing. It wasn’t until I joined ManningGlobal.com that I was given a platform to bring the MG blog to life and really showcase my writing for a wider audience.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING FOR?

Since August 2017, however I’ve been writing articles the old fashioned way (on pen and paper) since I was in my teens.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BLOGGING?

I love that I get to interview inspiring people from all walks of life; painting a picture of what it’s like to live in their shoes.

WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES BESIDE BLOGGING?

Away from the computer I love to play my guitar and sing, plus I’m also (trying) to learn Croatian – so that’s very much a labour of love. Other than that, I like to go to the gym, collect sixties vinyl and watch my beloved Liverpool football club.

WHAT TIPS WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW BLOGGERS?

Take the time to define your voice, always remember your audience, and when it comes to posting… choose quality over quantity!

GET TO KNOW – Savio Joel Sylvester Paes

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOU WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START BLOGGING?

 I’ve always thought ‘Blogging’ was a fancy name to otherwise the little things I wrote off-an-on.. on diaries, last page of my notebooks in school or on notepad on my phone/computer. It was just there, never really documented it as such. Blogging gave me that chance to showcase the hidden thoughts I kept to myself… and improve on them gradually. To answer your question, as to what particular thing made me start blogging – it would have to say the “unspoken word, the un-confessed feeling, the un-shared viewpoint and a whole lot of other things that didn’t have an outlet – until BLOGGING happened to me. I’ve never looked back since then.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING FOR?

I don’t really document in months/years, the things I love doing (like blogging), but if I have to give you a number – I would have to say above 5 years, though it seems with every post I write, it’s the same process I follow and it seems like my very first post. I would like to count my years of blogging through the wonderful love showered by fellow bloggers, through their likes and comments.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BLOGGING?

My favorite thing of blogging has to be the comments I receive in regards to the post written. Some of the most interesting conversations have happened there. I would have to say, I get very disappointed when the comment section under a particular post is blank. I love to read comments and I normally do reply to most of them. The likes of course are appreciated, but nothing like a comment attached along with the like.

WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES BESIDE BLOGGING?

Blogging isn’t quite my hobby, it is more my passion. Hobbies!? well.. I’m not much of a hobby person, but I’ll do things that calm my mind and keep me in a good space. So, I guess, I really do not have hobbies as such but do activities that keep me happy to cite a couple … long drives, and silent walks (could be by the beach or on  a less crowded road)

WHAT TIPS WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW BLOGGERS?

I would say:
(a) Keep it simple and let your heart to the talking, people tend to connect better with a post when it is written with “more heart and less head”.
(b) Of course pay a little more than just a second glance to grammar used, it does put readers off. Bad grammar is a BIG NO-NO.
(c) Follow the KISS principal. ‘Keep it short and simple (sexy also if you may). Kisses, blog posts and conversations are best in small, compact sizes.

WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU?

I can be found in Goa, if you are interested to meet me. Otherwise on Facebook, Twitter and on the blog itself. I love conversations and coming across different kinds of people. Don’t hesitate if you’re the chatty kind, I can be the same or just listen.
