I take on the baton of Blog Love from Deepa Gandhi.
I have to admit, when I first saw the topic of this blog chain – Why I love my blog – my mind went blank. Why do I love my blog? There are so many reasons, and no reasons at all! But then, due to some personal reasons, I was unable to find words – any words, on any topic. And when I mentioned that, the fabulous Richa Singh offered to write a guest post for me. Here it is – it brought tears to my eyes! For more reasons than I can list out, Richa, thank you!
A term that has been existing in my dictionary since 2009. Also the year I started blogging.
It means when a group of bloggers start to follow each other’s content pattern and eventually form a mutual admiration society to sustain the uninspired walks of blogging- Ghetto is formed. It neither helps blogging or bloggers.
Whatever is opposite of Ghetto Blogging comes in the form of Modern Gypsy’s Blog.
Her content wakes you up in the middle of a night and question your intent in blogging at large. It threatens to keep you down for days given your lack of inspiration and clearly visible mediocrity. But in the mix somewhere you find yourself, break shackles of this very Ghetto and suddenly find your own ways.
Last year alone I have seen Modern Gypsy grow through one milestone to another. From starting an ebook to giving away printable and now planning some supremely exciting ideas for 2017 (shhh)
Why Do I love her Blog? You ask.
Because her blog has its own calling. It refuses to follow any path. Her art pieces speak volumes and in those tarot cards you see a future unfold.
Wait. Are you re-reading the last bit again?
Yes. Her blog is home to her many talents. Her writings, her art and her tarot. In between you will find those fortnightly challenges of mindfulness – which I assure you (basis first person account) are extremely needed in today’s times.
Beyond her ebook – Art Journaling 101 and of course all her mindfulness challenges, I have also experienced her online through her tarot reading.
Last year sometime in October I was embarking on probably one of the most exciting and yet difficult journeys of my life. Given my faith in Modern Gypsy and her talents I decided to give her tarot reading a chance to help solve some of my questions.
Her reading was not only accurate but extremely decisive. She helped me unfurl a lot of dos and don’ts which have been keeping afloat even today.
And you ask Why do I love her blog?
Here’s wishing her and her blog a very happy Valentine’s Day. Hope this love affair never ends.
I pass on the baton of Blog Love to Dixita Mour.
