What is the story behind your blog’s name?
I am in my fifties and discovered joy in blogging very late. What I have come to realize is that the competition here, especially with food blogging is very stiff indeed! In the recent months, I have noticed that the younger entrants almost treat me like a victim who is sabotaging their opportunities. I would never do that in all fairness, as I blog out of passion. It pains me to see, that bloggers who befriended me at the brink of my blogging career and now turning their faces from me. People don’t even have the decency to say a courteous hello, when they see me. I have also encountered with people who have cheated me and even tried to strip me off my opportunities at the cost of my name. But not all is bad, I am now beginning to looking into the future that is bright and where I can implement my plans entailing growth and success.
Why did you decide/inspired to start a food blog?
I credit my daughters to help me discover my joy for writing. After completing my stint with the reality cooking show Masterchef India, My daughter asked me to key down the recipes on Blogspot. The number of viewers grew with every passing month, and I was overwhelmed with the received responses. I gradually started my own website, and stared keying everything there. Freebies that I received from numerous companies were put to good use, and it helped me expand my vision and work with charitable causes. I am able to provide a lot more to the needy with the help of this blog. Infact, the blog has given me the impetus to grow in more than ways. NOW I HAVE TWO MILLION VIEWS PER MONTH IN MY BLOG.
