Celebrating 5 years of blogging journey
My Dear Readers and fellow bloggers
It has been a while that I didn’t had a conversation with you. As you all know that we all we’re going through difficult times of covid. Still we all are standing tall among all these storms of life and working towards our goals of life. So I am !!! Believe me your every like , view or comment boost my morale and push me to write more on blog.
So, Let me share with you that last month I proudly completed my 5 years of blogging. The feelings are same when I got 100 followers on blog !!!
So , I thought why not to share my this journey with you and thank you the way I did when I got first 100 readers on my blog.
When and why I started my blog :
I started my journey 5 years back without even a knowledge of what the blogs are. I just jumped into in this world of writing without knowing the next step.
Believe me I wasn’t having any knowledge about the technology and how to run blogs. It just started out of passion and survive the difficult times of my life. As I took step alone, many joined and that made my caravan.
Experience with a free wordpress.com :
Only one word – Amazing! No comparison with other blogging platform. Even it was free, their custom care executives are always ready to help you and find the solutions of your problems. They have amazing tutorials to help you to set up your blog.
I also got a chance to get connected with WordPress community on their 15th birthday anniversary in New Delhi. In this we discussed various aspects of blogging , the future of blogging and the websites in local languages.
Challenges I participated :
- SUPER BLOGGER CHALLENGE
In the beginning of days , we use to recommend the various bloggers for different awards like commander quill award, mystery Blogger award etc.
It was in 2018, when I came across super Blogger challenge on Twitter powered by Insta cuppa. It completely changed my concept of blogging. It was a one of the kind of challenge where we learned how to write for seo for the various brands, different tools and tips to grow the blog and community building. That made me join the 2019 Super Blogger Challenge also.
- GODREJ FOOD TRENDS CHALLENGE
Thereafter I came across a food Blogger Utpal during these Challenge and participated in a food blogging contest powered by Godrej Food Trends in 2018.
- MY FRIEND ALEXA, CAUSEACHATTER
It continued with My Friend Alexa 2019,2020, 2021 and now looking forward to 2022 . I also worked upon my e- book ( now working on its update version) writing and much more !
Communities that help me to grow :
It’s always fruitful and fun learning with your tribe. Once you find your tribe, go and grow together. I was lucky to have the best Indian blogging Communities.
The first community that I came across was Indiblogger. Unfortunately few years back, the team behind them some issues. It is running, bloggers interact but it’s on automatic run.
This is the most active blogging community growing big with times. You will see an actual growth as a blogger n writer under the umbrella of their team. You will also get a chance to earn through various blogging assignments.
I came across this community recently. It is a blog directory too. Hopefully I see good growth in future with them. Recently they have launched their app too.
This is basically a community on Instagram. I love the prompts they share to write and I always enjoy writing with them.
These are the communities specifically for women writers and entrepreneurs. You can publish your articles and do some business too. I have not been active on these too much. So, waiting for more engagement there !
Moving to my own website :
Almost 2 years back I shifted to my my own website and with new name. And finally I am now the proud ‘Founder and CEO of – www.lifemarbles.com ‘
This opened opened the more opportunities for me for brand Collaborations and get some money out of my blog. ( after all we all pay for web hosting, domain charges every year, space on internet does come free !! )
Still blogging is passion not a profession for me. But little amount is always welcomed.
Collaborations with brands :
As a freelancer, I got some good opportunities like content writing for Punjabiadda.com.
Then comes Papernest – a brand that create recycled paper n products and Kyaari on the same line.
I loved to get collaborated with Suta – a brand by two talented women presently working on sarees, blouses , masks and much more. The latest include Oriplast.
Today many of the posts from my blog appearing on the first page of Google! So , I happy with what I have achieved.
