I started blogging to pursue my creative passions – writing and photography. This blog is an ever-growing, constantly exciting and totally fun culmination of both of these.
My journey took a little while, because quite honestly, I had to work up the courage to put myself out there. Varied questions kept popping into my head from time to time every instance I considered beginning. What if people didn’t like what I wrote? How to I manage updates across various social media platforms? What if I start it and never keep it up? Do I even have the time to blog? Shy, a bit of an introvert and socially awkward by nature, I was unsure of how I could present my true self to the world.
My humble food beginnings can be traced back to my Zomato profile that gave me a ground to eat and share what I liked and develop my skills as a food-storyteller. For that I will always be grateful to them. Not only did they provide the platform to connect with like-minded people but I also got the chance to participate in meetups that boosted my drive further. I knew then that I was serious about this and took it upon myself to take the leap!
It was when I opened my Facebook profile on 29 February 2016 that my news feed had a beautiful message from Facebook reminding me that today is an extra day that came only once in every 4 years so I should make the most of it. So guess what…I did!
I love taking pictures, I love eating but most of all I love beautiful places and wonderful food. I am not a professional writer and it’s difficult because I don’t think I am good enough but, I love what I do and I love doing it!
As you can see my blog is quite new and there are not many things on it yet. In order to give it some character I want it to be more personal and honest. I want to meet other bloggers and get a better perception about the world through others.
Over the course of my life I’ve embraced a number of different interests and hobbies from designing, merchandising, teaching, dancing, yoga, pranic healing, baking to art to name a few. But none of them have changed my life or brought me as much satisfaction as being associated with food.
In almost too many ways to count, this association has changed me and the way I am in my life. I think it is important to share experiences with others, and this is the best way to do it. I hope I get to visit many cool, unexplored and amazing places, relish new recipes, eat good food and I hope I get to present them in a light they deserve.
Food blogging has helped me discover more confidence in my life. There’s a certain little rush that accompanies the immediate positive feedback that I get every time a reader posts a comment, shares my post, likes a picture or invites me to a bloggers meet. Whether it is through comments, e-mails or social media, I am surprised at how quickly you meet people on-line. In the short duration of being associated with food I have legitimately formed relationships with fellow foodies who thrive on positive association with one another.
Over time I hope to reveal more and more of myself to the outside world. The excitement to find a world with like-minded people that relate to and enjoy hearing my story is what keeps me moving forward. I like honesty, being open minded and learning new things. I am always open to anything life offers me.
So why did I started blogging? Well why not? I love it. I live it. I enjoy it. I need it. I relish it. Is there a better reason? So if you are interested in writing, blogging, food or photography, grab a cup, sit back, and scroll through. Hopefully these posts might inspire you!
So get set to discover my Grub-A-fare…
