Blogger Interview # 60 : Ashwini C N






--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

I'm a simple person with a zillion thoughts in my mind. I'm a true Aquarian. 

My Blog, Just the Way I like is a personal blog. I write about Life in general, things which  attract my attention and make me think.


 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Are you a full time blogger? How did you get into blogging and why?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  


I'm  a part time blogger.

As I said, I constantly have thoughts running in my mind and more than just talking about it with people I wanted to make sure it stayed put so that I could refer to it at some point in the future. Luckily for me, a friend of mine introduced me to blogging. Though I've been blogging since April 2007, I've been blogging actively and seriously  only from  2011. And as my blog's tagline goes, Anything worth talking, is worth writing.  That is what my blog is about.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If someone was interested in blogging, what would be a few things you would suggest?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you are interested in blogging, start writing right away. To have a good start, you need to develop an interest towards it. It is this interest which later becomes passion that helps you to write because you want to and not because you have to. Write naturally about what you feel and what you think. 

Thoughts which come naturally from the heart have a powerful impact.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How do you build a community around a blog and social media?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  


Read a lot of other blogs. Do not read just because you want someone to notice you. Develop a genuine interest in reading other blogs and in getting to know other  bloggers. Every blog is unique. You would learn at least one thing from one blog. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
What are your three favorite blogs to read? What makes those blogs special?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I read many blogs on a regular basis and  every blog has something unique to offer. Among those, if I had to specifically point out 3 blogs , they would be

Ahamkaara by Sahana Rao (http://walkofthoughts.blogspot.com/)

Conversations by Sujatha Sathya(http://sujathasathya.blogspot.com/)

Words By Saru Singhal. (http://www.sarusinghal.blogspot.com/)

Each of them have their distinctive style of writing. They write about things which everyone can relate to and that is perhaps why they are able to reach out to lot of people on the Blogosphere. Any day, these 3 blogs I've mentioned would top my list of favorites. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Which one plugin would you suggest all bloggers to have?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


Passion to write. If you are passionate about something, Nothing can stop you from it.
