Thanks for taking the time to chat with SIW. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog.     

Bhakti : I am a creative soul and wanderer by heart. I am a believer. I see art in all aspects of life. I believe Life is a beautiful adventure and one has to live it and cherish it and not just exist. I want to make my adventure as memorable as possible as its one life that we get and so much beauty , wonder and goodness around, I want to take in all that I can and more. I love nature and outdoors, fresh air, gurgling stream, mountain, waves always excite me. Traveling far and wide and witnessing and unraveling the beauty is what I live for. A family person by heart, I cannot live without my loved ones. Neither can I live without my hobbies, being reading, writing, making journals, photography, painting, poetry.

Travelling is my passion.

What makes your blog so unique and why should people read it?          

Bhakti : My blog isn’t a guidebook or tutorials, it’s basically snippets from my life along with things I believe in. It’s an amalgamation of everything what life offers, the goodness of it all with a pinch of salt. my travelogues, small things, happiness, casual fashion, diy, simple style, pieces of poetry, sketches, things that I do and don’t and many other things make the material for my blog. It’s the little things on day to day basis, it’s like listening to a friend or reading a journal and who doesn’t like some snippets on daily life with friends. The writing is very light and short. it’s like talking to the girl next door with your daily cup of tea.

How often do you blog?              

Bhakti : I blog like 6 times a Month, give or take. I try to be consistent in my blogging but yes sometimes life does catch in and I do go small hiatus. Then there is a writers block, where in I just need a break.

Blogging is a methodical creative aspect which certainly requires lot of time, energy and efficiency.

What has been your most successful blog post to date and what was it about?

Bhakti : My most successful blog post has been about – a very lengthy and full-fledged post on sarees in India and different ways to wear them. It was followed closely by other fashion and travelogues.

What do you find most challenging about blogging?     

Bhakti : Not getting in a rut. Blogging is all about reinventing your thoughts which shows in your writing. Not getting intimidated by fellow bloggers and keeping it original.

What are some of your favorite author blogs and why?

Bhakti : Kelsey Bang for her simple style and writing.

Bows and Sequins for the instant pop of bling

Bruised Passports completely boho gypsy at heart

What I wore again for simplicity


ForestFeast  for the touch of nature.

What are your favorite books that you would recommend SIW family?

Bhakti : Twilight series for the dose of romance and magic

The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

P.S I Love You by Cecelia Ahern

Can we really make a living by Blogging? If yes, how we can do that?

Bhakti : I blog because I like to write and document small things I want to say. However I have realized that Blogging is definitely a big platform to make money but for that one needs to be consistent in writing. The matter, your style has to be original. The readers understand the difference. One can have a niche blog related to one aspect and then if the blog is really good with powerful content and good reader base the offers will come for advertisements, for product reviews , sponsored posts, the options are unlimited.

What advice would you give to young women readers of SIW who want to follow a similar career path as you?               

Bhakti : Stay consistent, have patience, nothing happens overnight. Be original and connect to your readers rest all will follow.
