Thank you so much, Sonali for reading my posts, for appreciating my work. Here are my answers to your questions:
How did you get involved with blogging?
I started my blog as a lifetime gift to my son. Before a mom, I was working in the IT firm as a software developer. But after the arrival of my newborn, I saw myself as a mom first so I took a break from my 9 to 6 job and started a new and full-time job as a mother. The idea of creating Bumpnmum came from the moments when I saw my little man first time and took him in my arms. He is my true inspiration. My baby made me more beautiful, stronger and more confident. Through this blog, I want to express my all motherly feelings and also want to connect with all new moms, moms to be.
What inspires you to write blogs daily/weekly?
My little cute baby is my whole inspiration to build Bumpnmum. Through this blog, I want to share my suggestions, tips, techniques, stories, experience and every little moment of my motherhood journey. In addition to this popular blogs on parenting, mom and baby health, pregnancy etc inspire me to write about the exciting and useful things to my readers.
What do you think about monetizing your blog?
Monetizing the blog is also important to some extent. Bumpnmum is my new blog so it will take a time to return on investment. But Money will always be mine secondary thing on Bumpnmum.
How do you organize your day including writing blogs?
Life being a mom is the greatest blessing but it also becomes very challenging and very busy. Messy hair, wrinkled clothes, sleepless nights, no social engagements are only the life of mom after having a baby. Through this, you can understand how much time I give on writing blogs. But still, I am managing my blog, my house, my baby and any impromptu things. My entire day spends with my kid and on my remaining time, I do blogging. Yes, I am managing but don’t know how.
What makes you happy other than blogging?
What I do other than blogging that makes me happy are shopping especially for my baby, traveling with my baby, and sometimes programming but only when my kid allows me to do.
What is your ideal evening?
For me, an evening which can give me some “me time” would be an ideal evening. I want to utilize that free time to do some yoga and physical exercise to reduce my fat which I have gained after my pregnancy.
What writer do you love to read most?
There is no special or highly motivated writer to whom I read most. Rather I love to read any inspiring story, exciting pregnancy story or journey, parenting experience, and any posts and articles related to parenthood journey.
What do you think the best thing readers can learn from your blog?
As Bumpnmum is based on the motherhood journey and which is intended to capture all the stories, experiences and moments of pre and post pregnancy journey. Through my blog, I want to deliver my best from parenting advice to product recommendations to help out all new moms and dads. I am still struggling every day to understand the complex world of parenting. So my motto is to help others who are also in the same alignment of parenthood through my own experiences. Especially for all the working parents so that they can be more successful at home and at work too.
What is the most enjoyable thing about blogging?
Blogging is such an awesome platform as we can get different views from loads of people, on the other hand, we can also share our opinions, suggestions etc. in just a single click. What could be the easiest way to converse with lots of people than Blogging?
What is your favorite quote?
“Shoot for the Moon even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.”
What are you aiming at in the world of blogging?
I have created the Bumpnmum, not for money purpose but to be a helpful hand to help or encourage other moms to feel confident and empowered, to make others life more beautiful. When people will find my post useful I will achieve my purpose for creating a Bumpnmum.
