She was typing out recipes for her friend which was almost an everyday business. Her younger brother (15 yr old) who was watching her asked, 'What is that you type out everyday?' . She said, 'Recipes'. He was quite for a few seconds and then he asked,'Why don't you start a blog?' and that left her puzzled!
I absolutely had no idea what a blog was. Ritchie was the one who showed me what that was and how I can sign in and create my space for free. Anything FREE is always welcome :)
I had no clue how I had to move forward, but having lil common sense left in me, I figured it out in less than half an hour :) So what next! Which recipe should I post for the world to see ?( I thought that the very moment I typed it out, millions would check it! DUMBO! :P ) I finally chose my favourite biscuit pudding recipe.
I didn't know anything about commenting. And I din't know when I would be getting one. So days passed by so did months! :D And one day when I opened my e-mail, I saw the very first comment!! I was so happy, beyond words!
It was as follows:
Hi Ria..came here from Mishmash..I make a similar choc-biscuit pudding.It would help if you could add pictures of your dish..happy blogging!!
Thank you Divya! You have no idea how happy I was that day!
But I was lazy , never updated except for once every month.
It was in April that I started blogging in full swing! All thanks to these lovely ladies for inspiring me :Hetal & Anjua, Manjula Aunty, Shn & Archana
