I remember the day I first started a blog. It happened at a time when I just exploring blogging for an IT firm I worked for. Out of curiosity, I began my own blog as well. However, time was always a constraint especially when I wanted to spend my weekends for relaxation.
As I soon discovered, blogging is a fantastic way to connect with people across the globe. What’s even better is the number of blogs you explore, get inspired, and there is so much to learn. I never thought I would finally have my own website ever. I know many of you reading this might wonder why you need to. But, trust me, even if you are a beginner just go ahead and get your own domain name, and host your own site.
I started out my Facebook and Twitter channels as a means to connect with other like-minded people on subjects such as fashion, and style. Over the years, however, as my thought process has changed more towards sustainability and our responsibility towards the environment, and as such, my views on fashion have also changed. That said, I am still crazy about fashion and styling, yet, I would like to make conscious decisions when I shop – clothing or cosmetics.
So, in the next couple of months, you will find a bit of a shift in the subjects I deal with on my blog. I also wish to promote women empowerment. There’s always light at the end of the tunnel for women struggling to find their ground. Don’t we all know that? But, it takes help, support from each other to lead us to the light. At this point, I’d like to mention, one of my closest friends had quite diverse views about how married women in India should be or how they need to ‘put up with everything’ that comes their way. I, however, beg to differ. And, I wish to remind every person going through their own turmoils – don’t let anyone dull the sparkle in you. If you wait to please your friends, neighbors, or family, you won’t get anything but self-doubt and grief. Just be yourself and follow your dreams. Make them happen. Don’t worry about people sniggering behind your back. Because they will always do that. The more you taste success, the more you will need to keep your chin up and walk tall.
So, I am in a new city….new, because I will explore it from my viewpoint. As the new girl in Bengaluru city, I hope to discover new things.
