My Journey in #BlogchatterA2Z - Reflections And Gratitude


Well, this is my enthusiasm for completing #BlogchatterA2Z. this year. The feeling of a success is already there!

If you don't know what this hashtag represents then, please let me tell you in brief.

#BlogchatterA2Z was a daily blogging campaign that happened during the whole month of April. In this campaign, bloggers were supposed to write 26 posts that represent posts from A to Z. 26 alphabets and 26 posts. The community that organizes this A to Z blogging challenge every year is a well-known name, Blogchatter. Blogchatter as a community promotes bloggers in achieving success through their blogs. For this, they keep organizing such blogging activities. This year's A to Z challenges was given the hashtag #BlogchatterA2Z. I could not take part last year in Blogchatter's A to Z blogging campaign. But this year, I did, and after completing this year's A to Z blogging challenge, I am feeling so thankful to Blogchatter for organizing such eventful and winning campaign.

Honestly, I had no idea how to execute this blogging trek when I got myself registered. Without much planning, I quickly decided a theme to follow in my post for #BlogchatterA2Z posts. I did not want to take bigger risks so I opted a subject which is common yet interesting. Spices. Yes, my theme in this year's #BlogchatterA2Z posts was Spices. Spices are nature's gems that not only add to the taste of our food but also give us health benefits.  They are part of our lives through the food, but we know only little about them. During whole April, I wrote on 26 different spices. It was really thought-provoking to first study about any specific spice and then write over it in brief. I already had a fondness for spices and now after studying so much about them, my love for them is on next level.

Although it was not that easy to write daily as I expected it would be. It was my first attempt at A to Z blogging challenge and I had not planned it meticulously. Somehow I survived. And the credit I would give first to my husband who encouraged to be in the challenge till the end. During this time, my son suffered sickness and for two weeks, I was on my toes. Balancing a sick child, office, domestic chores and daily blogging was really challenging. However, with my husband's support, I was able to write all 26 posts right on time.

Next, I would give credit to my twitter chat group to keep me motivated until the end. Initially, I felt that I am a misfit in the group. I was writing on a completely different domain and very limited I was able to take part in the group discussions. Yet I found group mates really inspiring and helpful. They all are amazing writers and I am still to touch the base where they all stand.

Now coming to what I gained with participating in A to Z blogging challenge, my google analytics report is flashing a few great things. All the numbers improved (DA, PA, No of visitors, session duration etc) and eventually bounce rate came down. I am really sunny seeing the performance of my blog for the month of April. A to Z blogging challenge has definitely given a boost to the numbers. For some, these numbers may not be important but I see them as a result of my efforts.

With this year's experience in A to Z blogging challenge, I am deeply encouraged. When I had no planning and I survived with writing posts daily, I am sure that if I plan the whole challenge carefully for next year, I would be able to add more feathers in my cap. Until the next year's A to Z blogging challenge comes, I would prepare myself with a better theme and better presentation ideas. I would also work to excel my writing so that readers feel contented after visiting my blogs.

Thank you Blogchatter to keep motivating me with those great mailers. I enjoyed all secret activities and all the insightful sessions that happened during the A to Z time frame.

Looking forward to next year's A to Z blogging challenge!

Worshiping Krishna.. वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम्..

Shri Krishna Ashtakam is a worshiping prayer devoted to Lord  Krishna praising his powers and glory. Ashtakam means a prayer which contains eight hymns(slokas). Each hymn or verse is composed of four phrases, each describing one quality or great acts of Sri Krishna. And, each sloka is composed in two lines. It is believed that krishnashtakam lyrics possess great powers. Here is the English translation of this holy verse : वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम् । दॆवकी परमानन्दं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥1॥ Vasudeva Sutam Devam Kansa Chanura Mardanam... Devaki Paramanandam Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum.. I pay my tribute to the teacher of this world Krishna, who is the son of Vasudev, who killed Kansa and Chanura and who is the source of great joy to Devaki. अतसी पुष्प सङ्काशं हार नूपुर शॊभितम् ।रत्न कङ्कण कॆयूरं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥ |2| Atasi Pushpa Sankasham Hara Nupura Shobhitam..Ratna Kankana Keyuram Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum...

#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 wh

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.
