Blogger Interview # 101 : Ananya

Blogger Interview # 101 : Ananya

Q1: Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?

A1: Life's always been a roller coaster ride. Well there is so much to tell and so little time.I live in and around Seattle, WA with my roots from South India. I am  an Engineer by education, was an Assistant Professor by profession, now a Blogger by choice and telling stories is my passion. I strongly believe  that we can bring a positive change in the world through the stories we tell. I love connecting people, issues, and ideas together to create new opportunities.

 My blog Ananya Tales is about my little adventures, my failures, my success, my insecurities,  my achievements.. in short tales of past, present and thoughts on future. 

Q2: When did you start blogging and Why?

A2: A lot of people assume that women of a certain age who are not unattractive have no excuse for not having a perfect life. But you can have emotional baggage that is dragging you down like cement blocks tied to your feet. It was time to free my feet, or at least try by writing about it, hence started my journey as a Blogger on 28th Jan 2014.  I had a story to tell and I didn't want to take mine to the grave. So better late than never.

Q3: What do you consider as your blog achievements ?

A3: Well, in my short journey as a Blogger I have received few blog awards but What I consider my biggest achievement is the response of the readers. The fact that readers appreciate and communicate, open their lives when they are commenting on my blog makes me feel worthwhile.

Q4: If someone was interested in blogging, what would be a few things you would suggest?

A4: I really cannot advice about it because I am still learning to do it right. But from my experience I can tell 'Blogging' is not just Fun, however easy it might seem at the first glance, but  its not. The only easy part is to start a blog, but from then onwards its quite a task. So you need to be really passionate about what you are writing. Just Be your self when you write, don't over think or analyze. Join blogger communities and groups, stay active, read, interact and comment on other blogs.

 Most important don't write for an audience, write for your self !

Q5: What are your favorite blogs to read?

A5: Honestly, I love Blog Hopping. There so so millions of great blogs out there, I like variety. So I really love visiting new blogs daily, I read around 20 to 40 blogs a day. So I have new favorites each day.

Q6: What are your thoughts on writing a Book?

A6: Well, Writing a book is something I want to do from a long long time. Its a dream, I will soon start working on making it a reality.
At the end, I want to thank you for this interview I really enjoyed answering all your questions and I hope readers too feel the same !
