So here comes the second Award for 2017! Thank you Vinayak Gupta for thinking about me for this award! Friends, do visit Vinayak’s blog, he write very well!

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
2. Write a post to show your award.
3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
5. Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.

Story of how this blog started: Well, I started this blog to practice writing. I find solace in writing. I like to make up imaginary stories and characters and there was no better way than to make a blog for these stories. When i started off, i realized that i have had a very big gap in pursuing my passion for writing – as big as about 6 years. So naturally, I felt a bit rusted. So i just started making random posts regarding what i felt and what i saw around. Gradually, I moved towards my goal of short stories and I am going to bug you all with more this year! All this because I have a dream that some day I want to write a novel. And I cant do so unless I am sure that people are liking my stories! Hence this blog! 🙂

Two pieces of advice to new bloggers: I am an amateur blogger so instead of giving advice, lets term this as sharing learnings. First and foremost, never hesitate to pen down what you feel, but at the same time, try to retain the beauty of language. Second, try to post as much as possible but don’t force blogs out of you! It shows and the readers don’t enjoy the content if it is written just for the heck of it. Also, don’t crave for likes, comments and views but don’t overlook them totally, because, you need to have some statistics, specially if your blogging is attached to a goal. Try to make a trend out of these statistics to see what people are liking, not liking and you can improve the content or the style accordingly, if required.

  1. Jothish, I like to enjoy the things I do…even if it means taking a little extra time 🙂 Eating, a shower, walking, spending time with a friend etc 🙂 Hence the blog name “Goin’ the extra..aaamile”. Like to take things slow….that reminds me of a good topic for a post 😉
