Why I choose blogging

Why I choose blogging as my career

About three or four years ago, I was working with one of the leading companies  Muthoot Group. But when I got to know that I was expecting then I did not think even twice to give up my career for the sake of expected baby. As many mother I was so protective about my baby.

During pregnancy I preferred to stay home for the healthy care of my expected baby. Remembering while writing with bit of emotion, the most beautiful moment of my life when I hold my softer than soft baby. I was going through the overwhelming experience of motherhood.

Why I choose blogging

Prefer motherhood

My Son shubh

On that point I was just mom. Subsisting my maternity to my best possible way. While looking after my only kid boy, could not think to restart my career through going out. Not because I was all alone with my husband and my boy. But it was almost impossible for me to loose touch with son. I could think to take step ahead for my career by leaving my kid to daycare school but it was beyond my motherhood.

I know how hard for any mom craving the connection entirely for almost nine to eight hours from child for the sake of shaping the career path. I wanted to inhale each and every steps of parenting like watching babies careless activities, seeing him growing doing mistakes and so on and on.

Its very tough to build healthy balance between working out and at the same breath, nursing your baby properly, attentively and effectively. Now my son is three years old. He is smarter than before in grasping activities.It is surprisingly true that my boy assist me in some of the household work. He is mature enough now busy to go to pre-school.

ME & Shubh
Me with my Son “shubh”

Somehow, somewhere deep within me I had a hidden regret feeling to give up my career. But the fact of life: You cannot experience all your wish come true altogether.

How I started

Of and on I used to write tiny post on the eve of friendship day, women’s day and also write on the few of the festivals on the facebook. My family, particularly siblings, cousins and all my friends appreciating my post. My siblings were keep encouraging me simultaneously for my writing skill and push me further to pen my views over certain issues.

But had no clue where to write and where I get exposure except one medium that is book. One day I was typing on google, “how to make career through writing”. Then ‘blogging’ word first time heard. In many of the sites blogging is a good working option from home but nothing I read how to start, where to go and who will guide.

 Then I heard from aunt that one of my younger cousin brother working online. That is Atish Ranjanwho is recognized face in the internet marketing. I was so pleased to get his contact back after so long. How the little boy turned into, indeed the blogger, was surprising news for me. Now continuously helping me out in the field of blogging. Needless to add, he is striving to bring out the best of me as a blogger. I must say his unexpected helping nature and full support overcoming my fear.

Every women dreamt of being superwomen but for it you need not to join corporates but within four walls with the comfort and luxury, you can make a mark and be successful in the form of blogging.

Presently, I learned little, on the other hand yet to learn lot. Its not the end of my post but the beginning of my journey as a blogger. I have a long way to go in the world of blogging. I have to play around words more and more.

Hope all dear readers will adore my expression and voice! Waiting for your comments and views!

    By the way, your son is adorable and I don’t know how mothers can go back to work and leave them after they’ve had their children. I would want to be there for every single thing they do. I think it’s wonderful that you have the opportunity to work from home and be there with your son. Congratulations and I know you’ll do well.

        1. yes may be possible.

  12. Hi Shivangi,

    I am the first time visitor of your blog and liked the overall look and feel along with the content. 🙂

    Welcome to the world of blogosphere.

    It is good to read your story about starting your own blog. I believe, it is one of the most promising ways to be creative and help others with your own expertise. All of us are unique and good in something, thus it becomes more important for us to share our thoughts worldwide.

    After all, we humans are social animals and there couldn’t be a better way to get social using our own blogs. I had an interest in creative writing, used to blog as hobby way back in 2006, but never gave it a professional touch.

    Things changed early this year, when I one day I thought to quit my full time employment and take blogging as a full time career. Now, I am happy that I did made my decision and moving ahead on this exciting blogging journey. It is so much fun and never feels like work. I am sure, you will also get addicted to blogging in no time.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, it was so refreshing.

    1. I truly agree with you sir what you stated. Blogosphere is not only money making platform for me. If you will view from my eyes it rejuvenates and heal your mind also. I love to play around words it builds my inner strength. If I will ever be employed through blogging then that will be the best thing of my life. I am here also to learn from a senior like you. Going through your blog always works as a guideline for me and provoke me to write more and more with excellence. Thanks for coming.

      1. You are so right Shivangi, blogging is a way of healing too by offering us a rich platform to share our thoughts with the world.

        It is not tough to take blogging as a career with the right plans and right energy. Although, I agree competition is tough, but at the same time, if we harness our real talent and write about what we are good at and what we love to, then there isn’t any competition around.

        Please don’t address me as Sir, I am also a learner like you and this is the best part of blogging. We all are learners, learning from each other and moving on this wonderful journey of blogging. Learning is an unending process and there is too much to learn. Looking forward to learn certain things from you too.

        Thanks for writing in such a good way, but no Sir please. 🙂

        1. Hi Ashutosh, Is it sounding right. I am seeing number of bloggers who is very proficient that is the reason why I am apprehensive about my blogging. My mediocrity will be acknowledged or not. But one thing is very sure that I am learning a lot from you and many more. Thanks for being there.

He always helps out bloggers even if he has busy schedule due to job and certain other things…..I am happy to hear that you have started blogging after leaving job in a good company….I am saying this because many successful bloggers have started blogging after leaving their job ….Harleena Singh is one of the bloggers from whom you should learn a lot…Stay connected Shiwangi..Looking forward to read your stories on your blog…

  17. Hi mam,

    Good to hear your story and how you come up with the blogging ideas.
    Like Adrienne mam mentioned it’s for sure you’ll do well, I hope so.

    Lastly one simple suggestion, I don’t know when you started this blog, but
    i’m not seeing many posts.

    Just keep writing, that is what actually required for a blogger. Writing is
    required to keep us alive in this networking world, otherwise we will get
    buried or hid underneath.

    Writing has no limits !

    1. Hi Bhanu,

      First of all thanks for visiting my blog first time with nice comment.

      Yes you are right I should write more and more but due to freelance content writing I left with erratic post.

      But by your saying I think that I should concentrate my blog and should update atleast three post in a week.

      Since beginning I am not taking a note in posting more which is unpleasant.
      Hope I can be more productive and can take content writing and blog posting altogether perfectly.

      Thanks for your views. Keep coming.

      1. Hi mam,

        Thank you for taking my views seriously, It’s great that you accepted it, only few does !

        But it’s not mandatory for you to keep a schedule like ‘daily’, ‘once in two days’ or something like this. Whenever some good ideas pop up, put that in the form of post. Remember one can get ideas only when we go through similar posts of others (for whatever niche).

        Let me give a link to make you ease with this concept Content making Facts | best practice

        Hope this helps you as well as users. Thanks again 🙂

  22. Its a fact and truth that, after marriage its difficult to manage between family and job.

    I have seen the same situation with my cousin sis.your point is “You are your own boss” its an awesome point to appreciate.

    I totally agree with you that doing job or work from your home can manage your family and makes you self dependent.

    I would like to continue my job or work after marriage. You are definitely a inspiring women for those who have children and family pressure but apart from that they are able to create their own identity and dignity.
