Are you into blogging? Here's a hilarious story of how I got began with a job interview!

The first time I heard the word 'blogging' is when I went for a job interview. The lovely young lady who interviewed me asked, ''Are you into blogging?'' At the time, I didn't even know what blogging was. She left it at that and thankfully, didn't pursue it. I got the job, but more than the job itself, that lady's question ''Are you into blogging?'' changed my life. I became a blogger.

The first thing I did when I came back home was to google ''blogging''. I didn't have a smartphone then just in case you are wondering. A whole new world opened up before me. I had no clue then what I wanted to write or for whom - after all, no one in the world was connected to me through a blog. That seemed exciting enough to take the risk - the feeling that I could write, convey my feelings and my personal stories and send it out to the world and just wait to be discovered and read by people I had no idea about.

For a mother whose routine juggled between balancing work and home, the blogging space was a ''retreat''. When my son went off to play, I would think about what to write next as a blog post. It didn't matter to me that no one would read it. I wanted to send out my feelings and musings to the Universe, without worrying about who was reading. This blog is where I began to daydream, sometimes look back at my memories, the choices I now make and share the few things that mean a lot to me personally. 

Now, this blog is more of a companion on my life's beautiful journey - which is why you also get to read happy posts like 'A Dad's Advice to the Daughter He loves'  and sad posts too, like the recent one I wrote.

Nowadays, I can see so many smart and intelligent young bloggers who are very clear about what they want. They want to focus on niche areas like social media, technology, etc. 

2017 has been a very busy year for me, with so many things happening that it has been challenging to write even one post per month. I still managed to share the most important personal update of the year with you all - in case you missed it, do read about my home shifting journey here and the bittersweet nostalgia it brought me. 

Now it's your turn to tell me - are you into blogging and what do you enjoy blogging about?
