Tips for new Bloggers?
As a blogger, you need to have passion for the topic you are writing about. Also creating original and unique content is important.
What are the challenges you face with blogging?
I struggle with technical part of blogging, I just like to write. But as I blog to spread awareness, I need to homework, dig deeper to write a not just good post but technically correct and easy to understand. So it takes longer to create and publish the post.
What do you do outside of blogging?
I used to work full-time as a sustainability professional while writing on blog. Now I have taken a break from my work, to stay with my son in his important early years. Writing on my blog is the only constant thing in past 7 years.
Blogs you recommend my readers should read/follow?
I generally read things randomly according to the topic of interest. Just follow blogs which you find interesting.
