New adventure – Epife (my new blog)


There is a different attraction toward the blogging world. Whether it’s a small blog about your pet or an expanded photography blog, the owner always feel proud.

WordPress always admires the newbies, just like it welcomed all of us on the amazing platform. My connection with blogging has been increased with the passage of time and I want to learn each day a new chapter.

Here, I want to introduce EPIFE to my friendly little wordpress family.

Please go through and visit epife.com and let me know your thoughts on it.

I’ve thought to comeup with a lifestyle blog that covers everything. I opted for this blog and now, my journey to become a better blogger and a writer has been started.

As I have always been a learner and a beginner, I started writing simple posts that are based on information for the readers.

It’s completely a new blog and I’ve to manage it alone.

I would love to hear what should I add to the blog. Any recommendation or any guidance would be highly appreciated.

Will the blog flourish? What do you say friends?

I am a writer – Day 1 #my500words


Going back to my school days, I loved to write but it wasn’t to transform my thoughts into words. In fact, it was all about the daily assignments, home works, and scheduled test.

I am a writer

What inspired me to write this specific post? It was Jeff’s email and I was completely intrigued by his amazingly well-written words.

Here I say, “I am a writer”. I am not a wannabe, I am already one such writer.

Wow. It feels so good to say with such enthusiasm.

That’s so true, I wanted to be a communicator or someone who wishes to convince others by dialogues. Then, why not a writer?

When I write, I attempt to make it as simple as I can. Obviously, I desire to be better with my writing skills but I don’t want to discontinue for this unjustified reason.

You would be astonished to know that I used to write in a sluggish slow speed. I hated that! It was so challenging to shape my thoughts into propelling words that are meaningful enough to convince the paper checker.

When I was giving the paper of online journalism at my University, I had got millions of words in my mind, but I was damn slow in writing. Somehow, I filled the paper but it was disappointing. However, I got average marks but I was never meant to get average marks.

Something in mind was driving me crazy, “Girl, you need practice, a lot!”.

Maybe I am such writer, who prefers to write a good stuff rather than filler content. That’s why I think a lot before I write or the lack or practice is the prominent reason.

But, this short blog helped me to experiment multiple writing techniques and short writing challenges. It always helped me.

I firmly believe in the idea of practicing and I must say If you are a writer or wannabe you must have to practice.

Forgot to mention, earlier days of freelancing also supported me to become a better writer. Importantly, it focuses on the powerful word ‘practice’.

These words by Jeff inspired me completely, “I used to be like that, you know, used to call myself a “wannabe” writer, because I was too scared to claim the title. I found ways to procrastinate the work I was born to do all because of fear. I sabotaged myself before I began”.

No doubt, I also faced such times when I was scared to write. I tried to overcome the fear of poor writing but with time and abundant practice I became more confident.

Final words

I am a writer! And I have to write. When and how to write is again a different discussion, but one thing I know is I have to constantly write.

I would love to hear what are your thoughts about the idea of practicing and how can I do that with an ease?

Top notch benefits of blogging


If I imagine an online presence on the internet world without a blog, it would be a big NO NO! Whether you are an entrepreneur, a digital marketer, a social media expert or an individual you will need to have a blog to survive in the online world.

Blogging

Blog is the pathway to raise your opinions and gain interaction (Image:Google)

 

Nowadays it is impossible to flourish a business without a persuasive blog that delivers to its readers. A high-quality content that sells and brings traffic to the site is the essential requirement for a start-up or a large company.

Generally, what are the benefits of creating a blog?

I consider blogging is the other word for ‘expressions’. Under the term blog, you are allowed to exhibit your thoughts, ideas, content, and everything that pop up in your mind without any restriction.

Employment chances are higher: Oh yes! You have a strong inspirational blog, chances are high that you’ll get a job. Employers give preference to those candidates who have a compelling online presence.

Enhances interaction: Blog is an online forum that allows you to interact with plenty of individuals around the globe. It speeds up your communication skills and an easy way to know people.

Get influence: Who doesn’t want to enjoy the power of people? Forget about the famous Celebs, be a promising blogger.

Freedom of voice: No one gets a better platform than blogging in view to share thoughts about anything. A blogger is free to write what he thinks.

Brings traffic to your website: A blog post that is written accurately according to the SEO requirements can bring an impressive amount of client to your business. More traffic, more deals.

You can be a writer: Blogging helps you to become a better writer day by day. It improves your writing skills and arouse your interest to learn more about it.

Become knowledgeable: A blogger is a person who always have a handful of information to share with the readers. It helps you to become an expert in the field of study.

Receive instant feedback: Gone are those times when business owners or individuals had to wait for the responses. Now, the time is about immediate results and instant feedback. You can be praised within no time or you can also have the poor feedback of your products. Everything is quick!

The above-discussed benefits are just a few, however if I keep on writing the amazing benefits of blogging it’s strenuous to stop typing. But, I will definitely write more!

Allergic to ‘E’ Challenge


I was nominated for the Allergic to ‘E’ Challenge by my friend, Naturelover. She runs an amazing blog which is loaded with creative elements and experiences. Let me try writing a paragraph without the letter ‘E’, it would be fun!

First, here are the rules for this challenge:

1) Write a whole paragraph ( a paragraph sounds easy right?) without any word containing the letter “e” (still easy for ya?)
2) By reading this you are already signed up.
3) Challenge at least five bloggers to do the challenge. They must do it within 24 hours or it is considered as failure.
4) If you fail or pass, suffer in the Page of Lame.
5) If you win, wallow in the Page of Fame.

Sitting in my drawing room, with two pairs of comfort sofas in contrast with brown and fawn. The fan is throwing hot air, which is kind of so irritating and pinching. In the corner of the sofa, I am busy writing this difficult paragraph. Also, thinking what should I carry from stylish lawn shirts for tomorrow hangout. The plan is to watch the “Jurrasic Park” on big digital tv forums. This writing format without putting midpoint of ‘D’ and ‘F’ is bit tough 😉
