#BlogchatterA2Z Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Last year, during this time(around Holi I guess) I started noticing posts with an unknown hashtag #ATOZCHALLENGE. I was new on twitter and in blogging as well. Despite I tried my mind so much, I couldn't understand what this hashtag was trying to convey and represent. After a few days, many of my twitter friends, whom I follow, started sharing their blog posts with the same hashtag. I couldn't stop myself and I read many of them. Much more and not sure how many. Following the threads and hashtag, I came to know about Blogchatter community. This is a community of readers and writers. They help bloggers in their daily blogging issues and confusions. They motivate bloggers and support their progress. I needed to join the community but the fear of being a beginner didn't let me join it immediately. However, I kept on reading #ATOZCHALLENGE posts, shared by my twitter friends and soon I made my mind to join this blogger colony.

I reached Blogchatter website and found a post on #ATOZCHALLENGE. As I went through the post, I realized this could be a golden opportunity to establish myself as a blogger. Also, as a novice blogger in the wide garden of blogging, I would be able to learn, absorb and understand so many new things. I further went ahead for registering myself. However, the registration was closed by then. I closed the browser tab with little heavy feeling.

For those who still are unclear what #ATOZCHALLENGE is, read this :
If you remove all Sundays from the month of April, twenty-six days are left behind. A to Z Challenge asks bloggers to blog on each of these twenty-six days doing so while following the alphabet. For example Day 1- Letter A, Day 2- Letter B and so on.

This year, as I heard the very first call about #BlogchatterA2Z from Blogchatter, I found myself ready to join this exciting writing trek. Very soon I got myself registered and I am now one of those people who has decided the theme to follow in all those 26 posts of #BlogchatterA2Z. Following a theme gives readers a hint what is coming in the next series post. Also, the theme keeps the writer focused towards expressing views, thoughts, and ideas.

I am a mother of a small kid who is still trying to understand this world. As a mother, it's my first and foremost duty to help my son grow. I am also a software professional who is now in mid-managerial level. My team is my second kid that I am raising. With two kids (my son and my team), I feel blessed that I still get time to pursue my hobby of writing. And Blogchatter's #BlogchatterA2Z gives me an excellent scope of growing my another child, my blog. I had a successful year of blogging in 2017. I presently have good twitter following (not yet thousand but close to thousand). My posts are getting enough (as per me) views and I have my own small web space "http://www.vibhuandme.com/". I am really motivated to keep it going to the next level.

I expect, with #BlogchatterA2Z I would write, read and share a lot of meaningful content. I expect that people would also like to stop by my blog and would read and comment on my thoughts. I also expect that #BlogchatterA2Z would help me in making some space for my blog and for my writing. I wish to make new friends furthermore. I want to rise as a good writer, someone whom people like to read. And I have a lot of hope from #BlogchatterA2Z.

Slow and steady wins the race. I am slow, I know, but the good thing is I am steady as well. I am now part of #BlogchatterA2Z 2018.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who..
I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold.
ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life!
I am not the wife who..

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert.

From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now

From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns. And I…
