The Girl Behind the Scenes

How did it start

Frankly this is not my first blog. I have picked up blogging too early in my life. I abandoned most of my blogs just after one or two about me and hello world posts. So, when I wrote my first post again in June 2012, I was just hoping to cross 10 posts at least to save my self-esteem. But I stuck to this. I enjoyed the transition from blogspot to wordpress.  I loved when wordpress kept reminding me that I have crossed my 6th post and 7th post. It appreciates you, and that encourages you.

I do not like to build fences to my blog and labeling it a beauty blog or a fitness blog. It is here, for anyone and everyone to read. I do not know if I am writing beneficial content (which I’m working on), but I write genuine real content and I evolve as I blog. And I can never be happier about how much the blog has grown with me over the past years.

How did it start (1)

Writing down my thoughts has given me a medium to breathe out the words from my mind and I very passionately enjoy it. It has been rewarding in so many ways, but there are a couple of very special opportunities that I got cause I write :

Interviewing Joshna Chinappa for Femina [2015]

Collaborative Authoring my first book ‘Entangled Lives’ with Blogadda [2014]

I can be anything. I can walk alone in a jungle with nothing but a camera, I can become an overnight sensation, I can become the person people look up to or become a superhero and save the day. But I chose to blog, and I will thrive to be a good one at it. If not now, someday. ❤


I’m so glad you’re here.

  3. Hey Sharu! Been a long time! Can see that you are not participating in A to Z this time! May I ask why? Get out of the writer’s block, darling! Would love to read your writes. Try to participate. Let’s have fun like last time! 🙂


    1. Hey Shalzz… I’m so happy that you asked, it really means a lot. But yes, I’m suffering a block this time. I don’t think I can wing-it like last time. I need a theme to stick to, so that atleast I can try to get over my block and write something. But I’m not able to come up with any themes 😦 I’m so frustrated Shalzz. That’s why I thought I’ll give it a miss this year, although I love A-Z 😦
