What made you blog in the first place?

A blog lends you a voice. What you share through your blog will be echoed in the lives of your readers in ways that you may not even imagine. Whether it is sharing your thoughts with others or helping others through your valuable experiences, a blog is all about sharing your insights to enlighten your readers. Personally, what motivates me to write my blog is the ability to bring a smile to my readers’ face, to help them live more fulfilling lives and to inspire them to achieve more than they could.

Tell us about your blog, in detail, and the journey of starting it.

Featuring personal style, fashion photography, celebrity interviews, food, travel and technology, Urban Diaries is a cross-cultural platform that aims to inspire with a distinctive combination of shared aesthetics and interests. Through my blog I bring an idea, a concept or a thought as perceived by the kaleidoscope of my brain. Bloggers, in my opinion, are a very resourceful community of people. They have the ability to take up challenges, and they have a willingness to bring knowledge to people in more ways than a classroom can. Their creative minds wander further than the usually trodden paths. Their curious eyes look deeper into the layers of everything they see. Ideation is not just a word for them – it is their way of life.

Where do you get your ideas from?

To quote J. K. Rowling, "As an artist, the key is to stay open to the universe. You never know what might inspire you." Because, great ideas can truly come from the least-expected places.

Which platform works the best for you and why?

With Urban Diaries, it’s definitely Instagram, and Facebook, with Twitter bringing up the rear. I feel that my community have always acknowledged and appreciated beautiful photography and narrating skills intertwined with a relatable and genuine voice.

What problems do you face as a blogger?

Getting noticed is a conundrum that every blogger faces, especially because of the huge number of blogs that are coming up each day. This is what has helped me: * Amazing content * Adding Value * Using Quality Images

Since when are you Blogging and how did you start with it? Did you face problems setting it up?

“A journey of thousand miles begins by taking the first step”. My journey thus far has been a short but eventful one. People usually say it takes years to be recognized as a good Blogger, but “where there is a will there is a way”. As a result of my perseverance, I found my way, and in this short duration, I have been fortunate enough to work with and showcase niche brands. I truly believe that if you are passionate about blogging, it will show in your work, and recognition will follow. Your blog-site (www.urbandiaries.in) will inevitably become a unique and personal space on the Internet.
