Tom’s Five Questions:

  • What motivates you to continue blogging?
  • I can’t exactly answer that because my restless brain keeps thinking random stuff and I end up writing about them in my blog. Primarily, my love for blogging is what keeps me going..
  • Favourite blogging or writing advice?
  • Just be yourself.
  • Don’t try to be or write like someone else. Every blogger has his/her own personal style and that’s what makes each one unique. Also, if you are here not only to express but also to learn and improve your writing skills, explore different genres to know what you are best in.
  • What do you hope 2019 will bring for your blog?
  • 2018 has been beautiful as I’ve met many amazing bloggers here in wordpress. I guess I’m slowly growing and I hope 2019 to be as sweet as this year for my blog. I’m looking forward to write many more posts and read plenty of awesome posts as well.
  • Do you have a favourite book or film that you never get tired of?
  • Oh yes! There are alot of films which I can watch forever. Some of them are Nuvvu naku nachavu, Gabbar singh, Julaayi.
  • (The names May seem like gibberish to you as they belong to a regional language, Telugu.)
  • Coming to books, I love reading the hunger games. It makes me fear, sad, happy, amazed and much more. I can’t get over the roller coaster of emotions it takes me through.
  • What four words best describe you? (funny question)
    1. Umm.. πŸ€” Kind (sadistic), Sweet (insane), Wierd and Funny πŸ˜„πŸ’ƒ

    Three things about myself:

    • Atara is not my real name. As I mentioned several times that I’m an introvert, I started a blog to express my ideas and thoughts to this community. For that I chose a pen name, Atara.
    • In today’s world where social media is everything, this fact about me might sound wierd to many that I don’t use Facebook, WhatsApp or Instagram. I think it takes a lot of effort to keep them updated about yourself and to keep yourself updated about everyone else’s life. Also after a certain point of time, talking to people through this becomes a formality and the time-passing affair now becomes a time-killing one. Rather, I prefer texting my friends through sms or speaking to them on phone. I don’t understand the point in connecting with far away people while ignoring the ones sitting next to you. It is not what social media is meant for but eventually that’s what many of us are using it for.
    • While I’m very silent in the presence of not-so-close people, I’m a very very and very talkative person when it comes to my dear ones. They literally need to ask me to shut up and breathe for sometime. Oops! That’s not something I proudly admit. πŸ˜‘πŸ™„

    My best posts:

    It will always be my first post. How many ever posts I write, this one is really special for me-

    Time for my questions❓

    1. Comedy, tragedy, love, fantasy, horror, philosophy- What is your preference for reading and also for writing? Why?

    2. What is that one dish you can eat forever without getting bored?

    3. When is the last time a stranger has done an act of kindness for you or vice versa? What is the act?

    4. Did you ever face a situation where you had a quarrel and stopped talking to a person but then you forgot why the quarrel happened in the first place? (Wierd)

    1. I love your decision to stay away from the fb and insta.. Fb is much a hype and insta is irritating..i would go with whatsapp becos I have my parents in India and connecting to them anytime is possible with whatsapp. Like u said, I am also a silent person and have very less friends. I am choosy about to who I can connect long term.. So just stick to my hubby and son who r the best pals of me.. Loved ur answers atara..
