I have been blogging since year and half till now,maintaining around 14 blogs. I was able to garner few good virtual friends(fellow bloggers), readers,followers,subscribers etc. Blogging has also enabled me to pour out my thoughts,feelings,perceptions,viewpoints etc and also get in touch with bloggers and people of similar tastes,mindsets and interests.
My sincere thanks to Jidhu Jose for interviewing me and publishing my interview! 🙂
Here are few excerpts from my interview:
1. Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?
Hello World. I am Swathi Pradeep
, a software Engineer[from India],currently pursuing MBA [in USA],a blogger,a cartoonist and a writer and a typical Sagittarian! 🙂
I maintain about 14 blogs ranging from my personal blog,comics,food,travel,photography,short stories,science and technology,books and movie reviews, etc.
2.Are you a full time blogger? How did you get into blogging and why?
I jumped into this bandwagon on June 19th 2009 with my personal blog, “World from Swathi’s Eyes”[which is now moved to wordpress. com]. Later,I started exploring various arenas of blogging like food,travel,comics,photography,reviews etc. I was a full time blogger till Aug 30th 2010,until my MBA started envying my free time.
Well,I had a dream of owning a website since ages. Being an extrovert,forthright,expressive person and a chatter box since birth,I love writing,expressing things,speaking my mind out(which has landed me in soup numerous times),discussing,sharing and expressing my viewpoint over various topics on current affairs.
Landing in USA,the gossip mongers or tv soaps did not lure me and I wished to use my time constructively in doing something which I was passionate about.
I wanted to pen down my thoughts,viewpoints,experiences,emotions,my voice,my feelings and also meet people with same interests. I started blogging over things which fascinated me,interested me,kept me engrossed.
Blogging has indeed helped me undergo metamorphosis both personally and professionally. It enhanced my vocabulary,my writing skills,helped me to pour out and jot down my emotions in a subtle and better way. It broached me to fellow bloggers with similar mind sets and interests.
