With an end of the #Brangelina Era and girls ruling the Emmys and so much more , last one week has been eventful to say the least . But life this side wasn’t any dull either.  Continuing with last week’s list of ‘Doing the new’ , here are my recent accomplishments. Yay to me.

Relearnt how I am my best company:

Not that I don’t have this long [ and growing] list of people I have to catch up with , I am spending an enormous time alone and its literally therapeutic . Highlight of the last week in this section ? I watched Pink the film, alone – Popcorn , Coffee , tissues , the works .  I would be able to share the experience with you as soon as I complete my unfinished post ‘Pink is the new Black’ . So hang in there .

Looking at the world with brand new eyes:

I downloaded Prisma . To say that it changes your world view completely is an understatement. A fresh bout of home decor pics and general madness shall soon ensue. You have been warned.

The Butterfly Effect is set in motion:

A published author [that flaunts a blue tick on twitter] posted yet another irksome tweet . It could’ve been a great counter publicity move for ‘Pink The Film’ but it did seem to come from a genuinely confused space inside her head. I tried to react to it like I mostly do by taking my age old stance – let’s not harm the cause of feminism just coz you don’t seem to get it. But something went off in my head and I finally wrote the first [of perhaps many] posts on Feminism .

The story doesn’t end there , infact it has just begun . For the first time ever I was BLOCKED , while I was quietly going about my life , just expressing my views [ and not even quoting people in question .. do you realize that I am still NOT!] .

The bottomline is , as we speak – The Feminism Triangle is the most read post on my blog and am proud I didn’t resort to shameless self promotions for it as  ‘a sly open letter’ .

In other news, I also completed 9 years of existence in the blogosphere . Crazy huh? I did plan a post around it. But I am going to have a significant year ahead and rather do a fabulous 10th year blog post. What say?

9-years

So wrapping up the week 3 and stepping into the last leg of MyFriendAlexa campaign , I can see how much I’ve gained as a blogger. My definition of content & connections has further changed and my Alexa rank has dropped to 7,59,933. What are your plans as the countdown to October begins?

I am taking my Alexa rank to the next level with Blogchatter, linking the post here.

      Thanks Geet.. So much has happened since 2016 began. New home , getting burnt out and now taking this break .. Little milestones like being around for 9 years almost went un-noticed. Thanks for being around..

    Chandni, you know what I am going to say, but then again I will say it for the benefit of those who read you 😉 . You totally rock,with all the awesomeness in the way you handled everything. Congrats on 9 Years! That makes you a veteran btw, just saying 🙂 I haven’t really liked the Prisma app though! I deleted it off my phone.

    Looking forward to more awesome from you.

      I am NOT a veteran Shalz.. 9 years now do seem long but they weren’t significant. Last one year was transformational. So thats wow – worthy 🙂

    I still say a Year 9 post is warranted 🙂
    It is a huge deal. You’ve been writing for 9 years. less than 3-4% of the Indian blogosphere can claim that consistency.

      Honestly , most of the 9 years before blogchatter happened , I was lost and lonely. Blogging needs company and that;s why the last year has been significant .

        Cannot comment, some issues with the jetpack of yours ..
        9 wonderful years of blogging, this can be seen in your posts.
        The creation and maturity of words .

        And prisma 😀 I really like the app for clicking books.

        I am my own company is a motivation

    I have done tons of things alone – watched Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows 2 alone, Bang Bang alone, Hurt Locker alone, went on shopping trips alone, have had lunches in good restaurants alone – I seriously can’t wait for people to make plan or accompany. When no ones there you are the best company to self!

      You have ? Hmm.. I have too . But not since I got married and especially not since I became a mommy. As a single , alone used to be super fun!
      But as a blogger — we all need company no?
