“The Journey of a Blogger” What do You”ll think??How would this journey be??Well it’s very normal and simple .. Not the one like my stories with twist and Turns..A simple Story..A ordinary story after all everything can’t be extraordinary …But I am sure after reading this You”ll will be inspired to do the thing You”ll love..
In my story Destiny is the hero…
“Destiny created a Chain for my destination I just Catched each chain and at the end I reached the Second last and that was Blogging..Still the last one is a Bit away..
Blogging…I have already spoken a lot
about Blogging..But still today I will speak again and Why should I not??After all My Blog Completed 1 year..Let’s Begin this Story From How I actually began to Blog..What made me taught of Blogging??
So, Here we Begin..
F.Y (Nutrition and Dietetics ) Student..A Student who hardly used to speak..Hardly used to participate..I admit I had attitude I always waited For opportunities to come to me and even now I wait..If someone asked me will you participate? than only I will participate otherwise I was least interested..Now the word Blog settled in my Mind From a Session organized by our College..Kajal Bhatia(The Food and Nutrition Blogger ) was the speaker..The session was really very impressive and Knowledgeable..At the end of Session when Kajal mam asked “How many of You”ll will open a Blog?? Majority in the Class raised their hands..I didn’t raised my Hand..I knew Few people have taught that it was my attitude But that wasn’t..The reason was I won’t say I will Do it untill I am 100℅ sure about it and I wasn’t sure that time..Years passed and the Blogging memories faded..I don’t know how But I became an Daily Fb user and Started posting Daily..and people liked it..But the Turning Point was the Workshop which I attended at American Consulate”Empowering Youth as a Citizen Journalist” my teacher and the Vice Principal Of my College send the details to me..I hardly knew what it was about..I trusted her and attended it..There are Very few Incidences where I reach Before time..This was one of them..I reached early..I saw a Girl sitting there.I went and sat beside her.For a while I was struggling to speak ..What and How should I speak??Later I introduced myself..She also introduced her and said She is a Blogger..We started Speaking as if we were Friends for a Long time.The Workshop definately proved beneficial..At lunch few more Friends,even my Juniors in College Accompanied us..They Questioned us “How long are You”ll friends?? She said “We met today and Look we don’t even Know each other’s name yet and yet we were speaking the whole day..We introduced Ourself But Our Introduction didn’t had name..Later it was time to leave and we exchanged Numbers with a promise to Stay in Touch..“Sometimes we speak like If we know the person for years and some times even if we know the person for years we aren’t comfortable to speak”Few days later we just had a Casual talk through messages..A group “Citizen Journalist “was created..After few days she asked me “Will you like to write articles for my Magazine???How Could I say No?? I said “Yes Of course”and than I wrote few articles..But She had To Continue Her MA and So She has taken a Space from all this..On 3 rd June 2015 I thought If I can write than Even I can Blog..I enquired How should I begin??She said “Download apps” and I didn’t remember Much things From the lecture But I remember”Wordpress” So I downloaded WordPress app…and my First post “I wish we Could edit our life just like we edit our pics” but there wasn’t any response..I got back to her and asked How should I promote it.She said promote it through a page..
Within 3 days on 7th June I launched my Page “Being Unique”I just gave a description in what it is about..The name was just given in a Hurry ..Coz I had to name it something..So I named it “Being Unique”..Actually my only intentions were just to share the Blog Link on page..But the Description of the page said a lot…Immediately I send Invitess to my Facebook friends..I wasn’t expecting much response bcoz I hadn’t posted there wasn’t any profile pic nor Cover photo..Just the name “Being Unique” and It’s description…But I was shocked to see the Response..As soon I invited My Frnds they liked the page immediately and a Comment from my teacher “Great idea would like to see your thought” that made me think ..How Could I only share the Blog link …If people expect than I should post something and Such was the Making Of ” BeinG Unique” ..
Let me thank a few more people…
Arushi Raj(The Girl whom I met at Workshop)
And last But not the least Let me thank Myself..Blogging is not easy..It requires patience.I usually do all my work at night.My mind works more beautiful in the presence Of Moonlight…
That’s all that was How I began Blogging and the Journey is still Continued and I hope it Continues Lifelong….Well this was just How I began my Blog??and What Incidences lead me to Blog??But the Journey,the actual struggle of Blogging is still yet to Come..
Are You”ll inspired By this post???
