Blogger Interview With Devika

Blogger Interview With Devika

I was such a pleasure to chat with Devika and I hope you guys enjoy this interview. Be sure to check out her wonderful blog- as always it will be linked below!

  1. Thanks so much for being a part of this interview. Tell us a little bit about yourself and what your blog is about.

Hi Pooja, I am glad I could come and join your stunning blog in exchange for our conversation. My name is Devika Mathur, a lover of nature, believes in mindfulness and who hates small talk. I love everything that moves a soul through art and poetry. I blog about poetry at my valiantsoul. You will find everything that can make you feel melancholic, loved, gloomy and all the emotions that instil our heart and minds with things sometimes unnoticed.

  1. When and why did you start blogging?

If you ask about writing poetry, I think I have been doing that since I can remember and for that as I can recall I needed a platform, so blogging happened when I was in the darkest phase of my life. Nobody would believe but I chose my passion, hard work over things that made me feel trivial back in 2014. I used to be lost at words, feeling quiet and would hardly have the confidence to present my abstract thoughts to the world. So, when blogging happened, I remember the amount of love and support I got on WordPress, people would be so kind that it nearly overwhelmed me.

I consider writing is nothing but liberation to me. I needed to bleed somewhere, in some form and so My valiant Soul happened.

  1. How has blogging changed your life?

As I said, WordPress is my first home when it comes to writing. I have tried and experimented with a plethora of platforms but the genuine love that I receive here is so surreal. Writing poetry on my blog did make me believe in the life that I chose. I chose to inspire rather than being a nobody. I feel it is good that we humans have such a tremendous gift of producing things, of creating things out of nothing and when I created words, sentences, poems here it made me feel something. Something better.

  1. Your blog primarily consists of poetry- what is it about poetry that really draws you towards it?

So there’s this saying “If you want to fly, give up everything that weighs you done”. And something treacherously was burdening me. I have had moments of anxiety, severe panic attacks and multiple sleepless nights .I still do often but I needed to explode or direct my emotions into something beautiful yet calm. I write poetry to feel that feeling of calmness. As I am mostly a confessional, surrealist poet my work is dark, my imagery is dark and writing dark makes me calm. See, we can’t confine definitions according to one person. To me everything is art and art soothes me only till the time it is there in a conducive form.

  1. What are some of your long term blogging goals?

Sadly, off late I am not much active on my blog as before as I started curating my newsletter. I was busy with my poetry book that was released in 2020 ‘Crimson Skins’ published by Indie Blu(e)and various other anthologies by Indie Blu(e) Publishing and others. I started so many various projects that I was left with almost no time in hand to write my poems for my kind readers. But I see myself expanding my horizon, I see myself working on my areas, spreading shades of my art or whatever I could possibly generate that can help inspire people. I might start some or the other projects soon..you never know!:)

  1. Is blogging something you would like to pursue long term or is it more of a hobby for you?

Yes, I think this is very imperative for me to know as well. I would say it is in a hybrid form. I can’t make myself attached or a representative of my blog forever. It has to be much more than that. How about, if we say blogging is a part of my life and not the entire life? I feel, when we don’t make everything our complete, whole part it is better. But I see blogging as a long term as well as a hobby to me.

7. What is your favourite food?

I love my Indian cuisine, everything home cooked and also love Thai, Continental.

8. Where would you love to travel to?

Ah! Everywhere possible before I die.

9. What is the most inspiring thing someone has ever said to you?

 “Indulging in self -care is such a beautiful thing. Once you begin it, there is no way you feel connected to things that are only trivial”

10. Thanks again and please feel free to add anything you would like to share with the readers.

It is completely my pleasure Pooja! I am beyond grateful to my dear readers, anybody who has found some peace, home in my works. If anyone is interested, could check out my published works by visiting my blog. I also happen to dispatch weekly mindful, self- care along with classic poetry newsletters. If anyone wants one, they can subscribe for free! I wish everyone Love and light!

Blogger Interview With Saumya

Blogger Interview With Saumya

I want to thank Saumya for being part of this interview- she is wonderful and so is her blog so definitely do take a minute to check it out. As always her blog will be linked below.

1. Thanks so much for being a part of this interview. Tell us a little bit about yourself and what your blog is about.

Hey there! My name is Saumya and I’m a teenager from India. I’m currently in 8th Standard. I love to draw, write, dance and listen to music. I also do lettering and calligraphy. I am a proud GryffinClaw and my patronus is a Dolphin. Writing and reading is something I’ve been doing from a long time. My blog is mainly a lifestyle blog. I write poems and songs, make art, currently I’ve been working on the Blogger Interview Series that I started

To know more about me and my blog, you can check out my About Page. (https://drawwriteinspire.wordpress.com/about/

2. When did you start your blog and what made you decide to start blogging?
I started my blog in around end of January this year. I used to write many stuff and send it to my friends and I also made my mum and dad read them. They used to appreciate my works and it was one of my friends who suggested me to post my write-ups and artworks somewhere publicly and that is why is started my blog.

3. I noticed that you write about a number of topics on your blog- do you have a favourite?
Well, I enjoy doing all types of post because different kinds of post attract various types of people. But my most favourite kind of post are the poems and songs that I write. It is because they are always something very personal and they also make me reach out other people who have gone through the same situations.

4. What are some of your long term blogging goals?
I have been focussing on my blog very much from the past 1 month and it’s going pretty good. I haven’t really thought about it but maybe 5K followers. I’m only on 100 followers but a girl can dream right?

5. How has blogging impacted your life?
Blogging has impacted my life in a good way. It has made my personality better and has obviously taught me time management. When we need to do something we like, we automatically find time to do it. And blogging has taught me that I can manage doing my studies and all my hobies together.

6. What is one thing you love about blogging and one thing you hate about it?
There are a lot of things I like about blogging. But the most important one is the audience that I reach out. WordPress is an amazing community and it has shown me such a nice support so I think that is the best thing about having a blog here. Everyone was so encouraging and I made so many new friends here! I don’t think there is anything so far that I don’t like about blogging, it’s pretty fun.

7. What is your favourite food?
I’m a very moody person when it comes to food. If there are 10 things in the world to eat then I only eat 3 out of them. Trust me, I eat a lot but I’m not a foodie. I don’t like trying new dishes until and unless it’s something chocolate. I think my favourite food has to be Corn and Cheese Pizza.

8. Do you have any pet peeves?
Yes, actually I have a lot of pet peeves but I’m just gonna state one or two. I hate it when people judge me because of my gender. Yes I know we’re living in 21st century but still there still seems to be some kind of inequality. Like when I play badminton with my friends, just because I’m a girl, they think I won’t be able to play like them so they don’t wanna team up with me. So yes, I find it extremely annoying when someone does a kind of thing like that.

9. Do you have any weird phobias?
Oh, I’m probably the most coward in the world. I’m scared of almost everything! Insects, dogs, reptiles, cats, birds, firecrackers, trust me, everything!! Even there are some people around me, who I meet and talk to everyday but I’m still afraid of them.

10. Thanks again and please feel free to add anything you would like to share with the readers.
Thank-you so much to everyone who has read my blog so far and shown me support. Thank-you Pooja for having me here. All the questions were so much fun.

Blogger Interview With Over-The-Shoulder

Blogger Interview With Over-The-Shoulder
I had so much fun with this interview because you guys know how much I love my TV time haha! I really hope you check out Over-The-Shoulder– it’s one of the most fun and interesting blogs I have come across. As always the blog will be linked below.
1. Thanks so much for being a part of this interview. Tell us a little bit about yourself and what your blog is about.
Unfortunately, I can’t tell you my real name, but I go by the pseudonym Over-The-Shoulder – which I think is pretty cool, but it’s a personal preference. I live in London and I’m a screenwriter. I review TV and film for my blog, varying from classics like The Godfather to new blockbusters like Parasite. I like to think of it as ‘gonzo’ journalism, which, hopefully, makes Over-The-Shoulder a little more original.
2. When did you start your blog and what made you decide to start blogging?
I started last year in November, so we’re still a little fresh out of the block. Why did I start blogging? To be honest, it really came out of the blue. I just really love writing, and I really love watching TV. It felt like a match made in heaven, and as I wasn’t working at the time, I started up the blog, not knowing the hell what I was doing. Ever since, it’s been a great learning experience and it’s going better than I ever could of hoped.
3. I’m a huge fan of The Office and noticed you were getting into it- how are you liking it so far?
Ha! Yes, The Office – I laugh just thinking about it. I love it. I love sitcoms anyhow, partly because unlike anything else in life they’re so easy to watch and provide some much needed escapism, especially in tough times like these. I’m in the sixth series now, and alongside Seinfeld and Arrested Development, it’s probably in my top three, or at least top five, favourite sitcoms. I think we can agree, if only you and me, Pooja, The Office is a great watch.
4. What are some of your favourite TV shows and movies to have reviewed so far?
That’s a good one – Fight Club is a fantastic film and I think Parasite definitely deserves the raucous praise it received. I enjoyed, both a little surprisingly, Uncut Gems, starring Adam Sandler, and relatively unknown American Animals, and I highly recommend either or. And if anyone needs a new series to watch, I reckon Ozark is your best bet. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel I haven’t reviewed yet, but I would also put that on my list.
5. Have you ever gotten any negative comments about your reviews and if so how did you deal with them?
So far, so good. I’ll be honest, I don’t mind a negative comment – in fact, I implore my readers to disagree with me. One of the main reasons I started a blog is to create a community that could join together to just discuss great films or shows. I want us to bounce ideas off of each other and conversations to spark. I think that’s the most important part of blogging. Once, a very wise person said to me, it’s about “not just talking at people, but being part of a conversation.” To that I say, amen.
6. Has blogging changed how you watch things or what movies/tv shows you pick to watch?
For sure. Before, I could just let things sort of wash over me, if you know what I mean. I didn’t really have to concentrate on what was going on. Now, I think I value films or TV far more because when you actually watch something – truly just watch it – it’s like nothing else. It is incredible. It’s definitely helped me in my work to watch so many different genres, or styles, or techniques, to see what works and what doesn’t, what I like and don’t, and try and incorporate that in what I do. Film is such a fascinating thing because it lets us live vicariously – I can be a drug kingpin, a comedian, a boxer, a jazz musician and a deer hunter all in one day. Nothing can replicate that. Blogging has helped me truly appreciate film and TV.
7. What is your favourite food?
Toughest one so far. I don’t want to be that guy who says pasta, but I do really like pasta. To sound sophisticated, I’ll say, al dente strozzapreti with a rich and spicy ragù sauce. Delectable 😏
8. What is the weirdest thing you believed as a child?
That is cruel. Such a hard question… Ok, I’ll go with that my parents were perfect. If I’m in for a rollicking tonight, I’m blaming you, Pooja.
9. What was your favourite movie when you were growing up?
Without a doubt, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. What more needs to be said? I think it may even be more delectable than al dente strozzapreti.
10. Thanks again and please feel free to add anything you would like to share with the readers.
That was fun, eh? I’d just like to thank your readers, my readers, every single reader out there. Without you guys we’d be nothing, writing in an empty vacuum. We appreciate every follow, like or comment (the holy grail) like I’m sure you know. Keep up the great work Pooja and the same goes for your readers. Thanks again! Over-The-Shoulder

Blogger Interview With Yuvi

Blogger Interview With Yuvi
I had so much fun interviewing Yuvi, she is such a wonderful person and her blog is really great so please do take a minute to check it out- as always it will be linked below.
1. Thanks so much for being a part of this interview. Tell us a little bit about yourself and what your blog is about.
My name is Yuvi and I’m from south India. My blog is about all things art. You can find various doodle ideas and drawing techniques. Sometimes I write funny, relatable, daily-life satire too categorized as Art of Banter. You can find the banter posts here: https://artwarlock.com/category/art-of-banter/
2. When did you start your blog and what inspired you to start a blog?
I started as a hobby blogger three years ago but discontinued very soon. I tried writing poetry but it didn’t stick with me, maybe because that is not my passion. I started blogging again a few months back and changed my niche to art.
3. How has your blog evolved since you first created it?
When I started blogging, I didn’t know what I should share or write. I saw many bloggers sharing beautiful poetry and I’ve tried too. (Honestly, my old posts will be embarrassing!😁) But now after changing my niche to what I’m passionate about, I feel my blog has evolved to something out of the ’embarrassing’ range.
4. I noticed you write about a number of topics- do you have a favourite and if so which is your favourite to write about? 
 My favorite topic is all about art and drawings. I’m trying other topics too sometimes just to experiment which works best for me and my beautiful readers.
5. What are some of your long term blogging goals?
My long term blogging goals is to improve the quality of my drawings and inspire my readers to draw with me by sharing ideas and printables like this. https://artwarlock.com/2021/03/10/doodle-art-idea-with-free-printables/
6. How has blogging impacted you and your life?
I’m that girl who gets bored easily. So before starting my blogging journey, I’ve tried various hobbies but none of them stuck with me. But now since I blog about what I’m passionate about, I’m happy.
7. What is your favourite food?
My favorite food is spicy Indian foods. If it is spicy, I will love it!
8. What was your favourite candy growing up?
Growing up I’ve always loved those cotton candies at the local exhibitions and festivals.
9. What is your favourite movie?
My favorite genre is fantasy so my evergreen favorites will be Harry Potter, LOTR, Pirates of the Caribbean and alike.
