Picker at Pace Turns 1

My journey as a blogger began on 28th May, 2014 when I first posted a poem that I wrote for my sister on her birthday. My aim to start writing a blog was nothing much more than just creating an e-book for my friends, to read some poetry that I wrote (also for them). 

I didn't take blogging seriously, more because I felt lazy typing so much on a page which was hardly read by anyone. I stopped posting after the second one. Then, one day all of a sudden I landed on one of the blogs by this girl called Aayushi Bangur (of Styldrv) who is a blogger herself, to be true she is one of the most amazing bloggers I've ever come across. The next day, while searching some more blogs I landed on Bombay Bubble by Anushka Hajela who is again one of the best bloggers in the country. While reading their blogs, I just felt I already have that trait inculcated in myself and I should give it a try by writing about fashion & beauty tips. After writing about 2-3 posts, I started getting feedbacks & I was overwhelmed with the response. It encouraged me more. A lot of other bloggers like Trushna Parekh, Gauri KulkarniAakriti RanaMalvika Gupta and many more to name, in the country, have been my inspiration in this field of blogging & have always helped me clear my doubts & suggested how to improve on my writing & pictures & everything for that matter. I just can't thank them enough!




Started with poetry, added fashion & then built an interest in writing about the recipes I cook at home, reviews about some books I read & sharing my travel experiences, I wanted to write all of it. And that's the reason I have so many categories on the blog. Also because I wanted to keep something for each one of you, in case you visit my blog, you shouldn't turn back without smiling!  My first year as a blogger has been an experience tale and I've learnt a lot from different bloggers & readers. I just feel there's a lot of information for free on the internet and one should always lay hands on it, most of it is on the blogs, just a click away. As a blogger, everything I do, flows from understanding my audience and seeking to help them as much as possible. After all, Blogging is a conversation, not a code. 

Today, as I complete one year of writing on this blog, I want to thank each one of you out there for the constant love & support you've shown towards me. This video message is only a small token to say thank you to all of you. Hope you like it. :)

Note : A very special Thanks to the Think Totka production team for helping me make this video so that I could connect with each one of you personally. And not forgetting my photography team without whom this journey wouldn't have been possible at all.

I hope all the coming years be as enjoyable as the first one. It was a complete joy ride. Stay tuned for more posts that are coming up on the blog very very soon!

~xoxo~
