Transition of Thoughts

Weaving thoughts into words

3 blogs I am thankful for..

Thankful Thursday

Over my 7 years 0f blogging, I have more often than not realized the fact that blogging is not just an individual activity. While each of us writes on his or her own blog and the thoughts are personal, blogging communities and events play a strong role in helping build a community spirit. Why do we need a community spirit? Whether its exploring different writing prompts, learning the tricks of the trade from experienced bloggers, co-authoring books and articles and more, for bloggers the acronym BFF has become ‘Blogging Friends Forever’.

There are numerous blogs which I do take out time to read. Though I do admit that I am irregular in the sense that I may read many posts at one time and then would come back again only after a few months.

While it was difficult to narrow down my list from the numerous ones I read, here goes 3 (or I say 4) of them in no particular order.

Parul Thakur (http://www.happinessandfood.com)

Parul writes on a variety of topics which includes issues faced by women, travel and photography, gratitude lists, food posts and more.

I love the way she articulates her thoughts about any topic she writes. She has a lucid writing style and doesn’t hold back in calling a spade a spade. Her posts also reflect how observational and thoughtful she is. All in all her posts are a reader’s delight.

Divyakshi Gupta (http://www.quirkywanderer.com)

Divyakshi is a travel & food blogger who writes some of the most amazing travel stories of her trips across India and beyond along with fantastic recipes and reviews of restaurants.

The idiom “A picture is worth a thousand words” is the first thing which would come to your mind when you start going through her posts. Each of her photographs tells a thousand stories and I truly love her eye for detail. Her travelogues are sure to virtually transport you to the particular destination.

You need to visit this to see some of her fantastic collections like the series on the beauty of different kinds of doors and the ‘Women in India series’ among others.

The Singhals

While I am sure there are many husbands & their wives who are both bloggers, the Singhals were the first ones I came across. And I must say they are fantastic.

Saru Singhal who blogs at http://www.sarusinghal.com has got to be one of the most wittiest bloggers going around. The best part about her humor is the fact that she knows how to make the most simplest of things sound so funny. She is also really creative and surely knows how to make even the simplest of posts so interesting like this one. Beyond the humor, her poems and Hashtag stories on her blog and Instagram show that her writing has a lot of heart and soul to it as well.

Alok Singhal who blogs at http://www.alok-singhal.com  generally writes on travel and his travel photos are surely some of the best I have seen. His eye for detail in terms of light, the setting and more in each of his photographs shines through. If you are not following his Instagram handle, you are surely missing out a lot.

Some of the others who I love reading include Archana, Roshan, Shailaja, Prateek, Shashank, Manjulika, Dixita, Amrita, Shalini, Richa, Mithila, Sushmita among others.

And thanks to communities like Blogchatter, I keep discovering some amazing bloggers like Tina, Vikram, Geethica, Mayuri, Saumy, Anshul, Pooja, Manavi, Bushra, Menaka, Anindya, Mayura, Deepa, Stephen, Kala, Shweta, Aditi day in and day out.
