We are honored to have our first nomination for the Blogger Recognition Award! This is not only meaningful because it is our first award, but it is an award for work and dedication, from someone who knows what it takes, another blogger. What’s more, we got this recognition while we were traveling in Malaysia!
How Did We Get the Award?
We were nominated by Swati Sinha. We thank her for this honor and recognition. Please swing by and visit her fabulous travel blog at Recipe4Travel.
How did Our blog start?
A big part of how we started our blog is who we are – a set of contradictions and more. We are minimalists and thrive on comforts. We are perfectionists and imperfect ourselves. We are divergent and mindful of social norms. We are inventive and seek continuity too. We are intuitive and spiritual and indulge in meticulously planning the trivial. We are easy-going and anxious about life-changes. Perhaps, there isn’t a contradiction that does not reside inside of us. We fulfill our curiosity, balancing these, one at a time. Likewise, we like to settle down and explore too.
Travel enriches our conversations and social lives. We love to share our experiences. And. If there’s anything that excites us more than sharing our travel story, it is sharing yours. Hence this platform.
Our travelogue titled ‘Backpacking North East India: A Curious Journey’ made its first public appearance recently at the World Book Fair (New Delhi). We have been working the to upgrade our multi-author website in anticipation of the book’s worldwide release and the hours were grueling, to say the least. To receive this nomination when we did, was perfect timing.
Advice for New Bloggers
- Think about quality, not numbers: Things take time and so will your blog. Following builds gradually. Do not rush the process. Enjoy it.
- Tag limits: WordPress considers a combination of fifteen (15) tags and categories. If you exceed this number, your post remains invisible in the WordPress Reader. Be aware, bloggers!
