Thanks for taking the time to chat with SIW. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog.
Vasantha : Hi, Thank you SIW, for the interview. I am a happy woman, daughter, sister, wife, mother, teacher, friend, mentor, seeker, lover. I am from Kovilpatti, a small town of southern Tamilnadu in India…
I am a teacher by profession. I was a professor at an Engineering College for nearly 15 years. I learnt a lot as a teacher and hope I have inspired some hearts during this period. Now I am a supporting wife and a happy mother. Teaching is my passion, reading is my love and cooking is my heart. Now I started writing also – My Sweet Nothings.

What makes your blog so unique and why should people read it?
Vasantha : My blog name My Sweet Nothings says that all. As the tagline rightly informs the reader that I blog everything that lingers in my mind. It is a personal blog mainly discussing about Relationship, Family, Parenting, and Travel. I hope the Daily Tips section is unique about my blog. Also I love to spread the Indian Culture and Tradition to the world through Spiritual Friday’s section. I enjoyed the posts of title This Mom’s Life – An interview type guest posts from my blogger mother friends. So as a whole, my blog is my heart -thoughts freely flowing.
How often do you blog?
