An Interview With BlogAdda and A Food Feature

In the past few months, I was contacted by two different places in the blogosphere for a feature. Both were exciting opportunities and both, things of joy and honor. Now, that they have gotten through, I am very happy to share them with all of you here!

So, here they go -

1. Interview @ BlogAdda:

I had the honor of answering some questions revolving around me and My Yatra Diary... prepared by the Indian Blogging community – BlogAdda. Personally, answering the questionnaire made for a good time for reflection on something that I have been doing for a few years now.

Here is an excerpt,
Q: You travel to places of religious importance. Infact, your blog started off with a post on Haridwar, the most famous pilgrimage city of India. Is there any reason to follow a niche for your travel?
A: I love traveling to places of religious or historical importance. Just to think that these are the same places that my forefathers or ancestors once walked on, gives me a lot of personal satisfaction, peace and solace.

2. Food Feature:

Mark Wiens, a passionate traveller and a self confessed food lover from Migrationology.com was in the process of scouting 33 food passionate travel bloggers for his article - "33 Foods Worth Traveling Across the World Just to Eat". When he invited me to chip in as one of the bloggers with my recommendation, I was thrilled and instantly agreed to it. Apart from being a great opportunity, it was a huge honor for me to be a part of something that I thought was a highly tempting and a very creative concept uniting travel bloggers from all round the world, sharing their common love for food and travel.

Please do check them out and let me know how I fared. I always very eagerly wait to hear from you. Thank you. :-)

PS: I will be traveling for the whole of next week, hence I have scheduled this post to be  published automatically. Will be back very very soon, till then... take care and keep blogging!

  24. Arti,
    I visited "33 Foods Worth Traveling Across the World Just to Eat". Fabulous!! I found most of them I have never eaten!! I also wonder if there is a country where people enjoy eating poisonous fish after removing poison.

    Food is very important as what we eat today makes what we are tomorrow.

    Have a wonderful trip!

  25. We share a love for travel that is good for the soul, Arti. Sacred landscapes, cradles of faith, majestic ruins, places steeped in prayer, pilgrims' routes - these are the places that I want to go to.

  26. Hi Arti,
    I enjoyed reading your interview with Blogadda. Since I had a wonderful opportunity to know you in person (even for a very short time), I think the interview explains a lot your take on blogging and why your blog is highly evaluated. I am happy for you!
    Food! So tempting! Personally I love Korean and Vietnamese and of course Japanese dishes.
    Hope you'll keep up with good work!

  28. Arti, i went through your interview on Blogadda. Congratulations! :) Your responses were apt and to the point.

    And the decision to describe Jalebi to global audience was great.. :)

  29. Hi, Arti. You always have your ways of touching our hearts through your words. This made me reflect - "I love traveling to places of religious or historical importance. Just to think that these are the same places that my forefathers or ancestors once walked on, gives me a lot of personal satisfaction, peace and solace."

    Will definitely read the these two articles. Have a great day, my dear friend.

  30. Thank You Everyone. I am back from my trip and am overwhelmed to see all your responses here, thank you very much for all your wishes and feedbacks. Its truly heartening to have them all. :)

    @Saru Thanks Saru, those Jalebis are straight off the sweetshop counter. Though I do love cooking, there's a loooong way for me to go to be able to achieve that kind of perfection and finesse. :)

    @rainfield @Santosh @Bikramjit Please dont embarrass me by saying all this, I am a very regular blogger and would always like to be one. :)

  34. Arti, you’re such a well-known person in the blogosphere. I read your interview and writing about Jalebi. I enjoyed all the mouth-watering delicacy of each country. As a person from Kobe, I’m familiar with Kobe beef. Marbled beef is such an extravagance with exquisite and moreish taste. However, I know eating it constantly is not good for our health. I think “Man, who thinks well, lives well.” and “Man, who eats well, lives well.”, too. Diet habit makes great difference in our ageing process. Have a nice weekend.

  35. hmmmm checked out your Jalebi at Migrationology and eager to taste it soon!

    read your interview and I love these points you mentioned on the most gratifying aspect of blogging_

    "My writing a post – Readers reading them – readers commenting – my feelings on reading their comments"...and

    "excellence is bound to come if you are honest and sincere in whatever you do."....

    I always enjoy visiting your blog because of your sincerity which yes makes you an excellent writer...:-)

  53. Hi Arti,
    I got introduced to your site from Indiblogger and liked the content as well as the format. Though the site is simple it looks neat and well organized and has interesting content for all.

    I'm planning to add some articles in my blog about people who made it successful in some field or the other. I like to put it in interview style or like a casual conversation.

    Is it possible for you to do an interview (questionnaire) via email or something. I'm planning to put that in my blog (http://sekharc.blogspot.com) if you are okay with the idea.
    Let me know your thoughts or suggestions on the same.

    ReplyDelete

Delighted u stopped by... Your suggestions, feedback are really appreciated. Thanks a lot! Hope you visit again!

If you have asked a question, please give me at least 2 days to reply back. Thank you :)
