My answers to the Questions by Ashwathy Manimala from Blogging Hawks
- Who inspired you to start your blog?
Well, to be true I wasn’t inspired to blog it was a need a need of marketing my expansion but as I entered the blogging world was truly inspired by the Big Giant’s present in the industry.
Today if I say, even the smallest wins achieved by the bloggers in my network inspires me to go ahead on the journey I have chosen for myself.
- What have you recently learned from blogging?
Just like Ray LeBlond says
“You can learn something every day if you pay attention.”
Blogging has taught me some lessons as well but the most important of them being ‘Content is king’ because good writing provides you with strong, regular and often unexpected referrers helping you build your strong foundations.
And I believe in order to build strong structures or Buildings one must always have strong foundations.
- What are your favorite books that you would like other bloggers to read?
I love reading and have read many but of them all until now my favorites have been
Rich dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
The Aladdin Factor by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen
Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
- Where would you like to be in blogging five years from now?
I would love to be definitely in a better place from now with a growing audience.
- Which is that one quote you think can change a bad day into a good day?
A simple quote by J.K.Rowling
Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my Life.
Always helps as well as motivates me to push hard no matter how bad or worse is the situation
- What were you going to do if you were not a blogger?
Before Blogging for EFR International and now as well, we have been offering services but only locally and other than this company I also have my Trading firm which deals in Perfumes and Fashion Jewelry for which the next development phase is manufacturing.
- What is your suggestion for newbies in blogging?
It’s important to the newbies to remember success doesn’t happen suddenly you need to be patient determined and persistent.
And always be true to yourself!
- Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?
I used to write before but never shared it, but now it’s like writing my journal on my as well as other websites with an audience It’s just that I have converted my hobby into a profession.
- Which movies you think have motivated you and why?
The movie Pursuit of Happiness has motivated me, Chris Gardner, the Stock Brokers Pursuit of Happyness taught me it’s all about being persistent and determined.
The story said ‘The tests we face in life’s journey are not to reveal our weaknesses but to help us discover our inner strengths. We can only know how strong we are when we strive and thrive beyond the challenges we face.’
And I truly agree
My favorite dialogue from the movie is ‘You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you, you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. ‘
- What would you like to do in your spare time?
This year I have hardly got any spare time in my hands, you might think I’m complaining but trust me I’m loving it. When I get to, in my spare time I like to read books or listen to music if it is for short span of time whereas if I can take off for few days best is to take a vacation and refocus and rejuvenate.
