I cannot believe a year has gone by already since my first #ATOZChallenge last April with Blogchatter. By far, it was one of the biggest learning lessons for me last year.
I got to learn about Blogchatter when I re-activated my Twitter account around March last year. I realised how much has changed in the blogging landscape ever since I went cold on my own blog while in the US. For one, social media plays a huge instrumental role in blogging today. Writing was no longer an introvert´s haven but it required one to pull up their sleeves, get out of their cozy comfort zone, promote their writings and interact with their readers. I signed up for Blogchatter´s #AtoZChallenge without really knowing what was exactly expected of me. In hindsight, it was a moment of crazy courage wherein I took a bold plunge to dive in, completely trusting Blogchatter to be my life-saving float.
I did not have any plan last year. I wrote spontaneously every single day. I didn´t think too much and just went with the flow. The only time I planned in advance was the last week when we went for an impromptu family vacation to Goa. Amidst all the packing, here I was quickly drafting and editing my posts before leaving.We wanted to go on complete digital detox. In Goa, I would quickly post my blog link the first thing each morning via my husband´s mobile. Only then, we would go around exploring the place. Coming up with an e-book was a wonderful learning experience. I learnt to do everything from the scratch as far as my debut e-book was concerned with Team Blogchatter always a mail away for any queries.
This year, I want to take it to the next level. I do have a theme and plan in place this year. I have one main aspiration from the #AtoZChallenge this year. I want to come up with an impactful, high quality book that strikes a chord with the readers. I want to connect and entertain my readers like no other. Other than that, I want to have fun reading other´s #AtoZchallenge posts, meet new people and learn something new from Team Blogchatter, the incredibly talented line-up of 10 authors who will be spearheading the Blogchatter Writing Festival each week , fellow participants and my beloved readers.
