How Blogging evolved us in Life

Every journey starts with that one tiny step and brings with it loads of surprises and learnings. Our blogging journey of 8 long years and still going keeps us motivated and energized to continue to travel on the road that we opted for. The path was not rosy though when we began, we sister blogger duo MeenalSonal curated the blog auraofthoughts to present the world power of positivity. 

Success and contentment can be balanced when there is a balance of hard work and consistency. It holds true for us where we have reaped each blog post with thoughtfulness, positivity, and care. We are ecstatic to share that we have completed 600 blog posts on this blog. And with this milestone, we would again like to pause and reflect on our journey.

This beautiful blogging journey imbibed in us values that made us believe in ourselves more and more. The 5 ethos that keeps us going are: 

Be Curious

Be Consistent

Be Yourself

Be Supportive

Be a Change

Blogging is celebrating the power of oneness, positivity, and consistency.

Our Learning in Blogging Journey:

  • Take incremental steps to reach the perfectness in curating great content. 
  • Set some goals and strive to stick to them for consistent and purposeful content. 
  • Keep experimenting with new methods and adopting new ways to improvise the content. 
  • Have a habit of taking your negative points sportively and develop the habit of correcting yourself. 
  • Explore your inner self and come up with brilliant ideas.

Our Blogging Landmarks

A journey that started with the sole motto to share thoughts that would instill positivity among readers and make them believe that every situation has an angle that could give an optimistic outlook. With this, we started penning thoughts in varied formats and genres; exploring each one at a time and holding the hands, and understanding the nits and grits of blogging we will be completing 8 years in Dec 2021. 

Creating content that shines with a positive aura has made our blog to be listed in Top Indian Blogs for four consecutive years and also ranked among the Top 20 Indian Lifestyle Bloggers list at Feedspot. Such milestones are perks of being dedicated and such recognitions give us an added spark to work harder.

Being a blogger, we do influence the thoughts of the readers in an approach that is fruitful to them or gives readers a moment to think on a subject they have not pondered upon earlier. We always put forth our honest views across and also voiced our opinions on social subjects like Women's Empowerment, Education, and Environment. We take the responsibility in sharing content that makes the world a better place with thoughtful minds.

Poetries resonated with readers made us believe that expressions through this format connect with the audience instantly and remain with them for a longer time than a text. In past years our poetry has been published in various anthologies and has also won poetic competitions. Writing poetry in Hindi has also built a strong readership of our blog and sharing the snippet of the poetry that is most loved.

Penning our parenting experiences as we share with our friends and relatives connected us with parents; we also consolidated parenting new age mantras in an ebook titled ‘Parenting-An Intangible Wonder.

Short stories can sometimes explain the message in a subtle manner where a lengthy post cannot. We dived in this genre to fill hearts with buckets of compassion and affection.

A person evolves with a book and we believed in this thought from childhood where our parents instilled reading in us. Sharing our views and analysis of the book simply and effectively made us consistent book reviewers. We are pleased to share that recently we were awarded best book reviewer by Cherry Book Awards.

A path cannot be traveled alone and in the blogging world too we have many supporting fellow bloggers who are now friends and blogging communities that give bloggers the platform to showcase their blogs and connect with bloggers who are miles apart but together in the writing world.
