A Small Win!

Ever wondered whether you’re good at something, and yet gone ahead to do it, and done it so well that you surprised yourself?

I know the feeling because it happened to me recently.

So, what happened was that a parenting website approached me to write for them.

‘Me?’ I asked, wondering what did they see in my writing that they’d ask me. Promptly, I said no, giving the excuse that me being single and therefore, no one’s parent (except,ย of course, the mosquitoes in my room who I regularly fed my blood). To my surprise, they didn’t agree and insisted I write and so I did. Lo, and behold,

Lo, and behold, it got 14,000+ views. Don’t ask me how and why. ย I am still figuring that one out.

And a bigger surprise was when it was adjudged one of the top blogs of the month, winning me a Kindle.


Of course, the win and the prize (I’ve been eyeing a Kindle for some time now) is special but even more special than the prize is the reason for the win. Me, no less than an overgrown kid, is giving parenting advice. Cannot even begin to state how immensely satisfying this was or how much this win means to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the link to the article. Do read it and tell me what you think of it.
