Dear Me, Or should I say Hey You, You Escaped Alien from Proxima Centauri and Descendant from a Species of Apes that Never Existed, What's Up? Yes, Yes, I know what your answer will be - the sky, the temperature in Delhi, and the pitch of those TV reporters who make a light drizzle sound … Continue reading A Letter to Me
I have been blogging for almost 2 years now, and let me state at the very outset that I am no expert. Want to learn from an expert instead? Read How To Be A Successful Blogger: 6 Best Tips by Aditi Mathur. These are a few tips I've discovered over the past two years and, while … Continue reading The Art of Blogging
I promised. So I deliver. After all, Derek Shepherd said ... Oh well, I can't remember anything he said that fits the situation. Let's just get on with it, shall we? I am taking My Alexa rank to the next level with Blogchatter and we have to read four blogs every day as part of the … Continue reading New Blogs I Discovered Last Week
When I started the My Friend Alexa campaign with Blogchatter, I had little understanding about Alexa ranking, page views, and SEO listings. I had signed up for the campaign expecting it to be replete with difficult tasks described using technical jargon which would go right over my little head, much like the spaceship that hovers … Continue reading The Week Gone By
When I ask myself Why I Write, I also look at the journey I've been on so far. And while it's been less than two years (which in my opinion is very short a time to judge how I've fared), my journey has been extremely rewarding and fulfilling for me. I don't measure my success … Continue reading My Journey with Sheroes
How does it feel to start something only to leave it midway just because you were unable to keep up with the commitment and work it involved? Guilty, and of course, a sense of incompleteness. That's exactly how I felt about ignoring my blog for the past few months as I pursued new interests and opportunities. … Continue reading Why I Write?
For a writer (or any creative person for that matter) it is imperative to carry a notebook at all times. At least that’s what the greats advise. For you never know when brilliance may strike. I am always on the lookout for that ideal journal or perfect diary to pen my thoughtsand end up spending countless … Continue reading The Creative Woman’s Dream Journal
Every time we, as feminists, talk about women rights, gender equality, and other topics along these lines, we encounter many people who are equally vocal in opposing our ideas with views steeped in ignorance, myopic thinking, and baseless prejudices. I have been in many situations where I bow out of a disagreement in order to … Continue reading A Rant Against Anti-Feminists
I have myself unfollowed a few blogs for various reasons. And I’m sure others may have unfollowed me too. Mick explains it perfectly. Comments left enabled here as I am keen to know what you think. But do visit the original blog too. 🙂
Every now and again I get unfollowed. And every now and again I unfollow a blog. Is it a big deal? Should it be a big deal?
At first, it can seem hurtful to find that someone has unfollowed you on any sort of social media, but really it shouldn’t be. Somehow, I find that I now follow a huge number of blogs, most of which I love, and I do wish I had more time available to read them more fully and comment on them, but I don’t. This means that every now and again I sacrifice one for the common good.
But, never without good reason.
First up, one thing that does irritate me, is when I visit and read a blog, leave a response – sometimes a quite lengthy one – and never receive any sort of reply. One blog that I initially followed was like this…

They say when it rains, it pours. I am in the middle of a full-fledged deluge. Let me go back to how this all started. My love for reading developed early on, when I was still in school.

The Story Continuation Challenge ran for 11 straight weeks and some amazing stories came out of it. The prompts were as difficult as I could make them and yet the ones who participated wrote such brilliant stories that it sometimes made us sad, sometimes angry, sometimes all goey and warm-hearted and always left us wanting … Continue reading Story Continuation Challenge Season Finale
The Mother's Day prompt was interesting and easy enough , I guess. At least the responses seem to indicate so. There were two very interesting write-ups. Once again, from Mandi and Sonali. I absolutely loved both the articles and especially was impressed by the novelty and unique perspective in both. It helped me change my … Continue reading Story Continuation Challenge Prompt 11

A few months ago, a close friend had said this about me: “Give her any prompt and she dives right into it; writing in full flow.” At the time I had simply laughed and brushed it off. But her words came to mind yesterday after I completed the first assignment at the Interactive Flash Fiction … Continue reading Of Rains and Rainbows: Solicit your feedback
With Camp NaNoWriMo in full swing and my Sikkim travel tales, the Story Continuation Challenge got second rate treatment, unfortunately. But here it is , with another interesting prompt this week. But first, over to last week's stories. I loved the stories that came in last week. Let me repeat that. Absolutely, loved them! With such … Continue reading Story Continuation Challenge Prompt 7

So, Camp NaNoWriMo started yesterday and as promised to myself I jumped headlong into it. I've started working on a novel; and even though the plot seemed sketchy, I still took the plunge. I did worry about not having enough length and scenes in the storyline to qualify it as a novel. I am finally working … Continue reading Gifts from Camp NaNoWriMo
From the newest ‘Admin’ of Bloggers World (Me): Do drop in and leave a comment if you want to join in the party. 🙂 🙂
Warm Greetings, Dear Members!
The mantle has been passed on to me and although it is only the responsibility of being the admin of a blogging forum (and not the position of POTUS) I am quite honoured and anxious at this new role. Honoured because this is a great forum and the Admin team before me has done some stupendous work since its inception. Anxious because this is my very first time doing this and I would be learning as I go along.
I take this position quite seriously and would strive to discharge my duties responsibly and as per your expectations. If I falter, please do forgive me after the mandatory rap on the knuckle.
With that out of the way, here’s a more believable end scenario.
I do hope to take the forum to newer heights from here and request your assistance in this endeavour. As we all…
