In 2017, as a fledgling blogger just finding my feet
I never knew the right people to meet
Over a year went by of churning out new written content
The audience was minimal, but my writer’s heart was content
Then there sprang a desire for recognition,
Spreading my writer’s wings became a serious mission
Someone mentioned the hallowed name of the challenge known as A-Z
Organised in India by Blogchatter, for which I signed up with glee
April 2019 was a gruelling month of reading and writing,
Though caught unawares, I thoroughly enjoyed my creative juices alighting
And so began a relationship between Blogchatter and me
One of support, happiness, and monetary gains going far beyond the A-Z
They published my first book, “Tales From My Travel Treasury”
Which brought that long-desired recognition and made me merry
Then along came ‘My Friend Alexa’, a cake-walk in comparison to the other
If A-Z is the mother of all challenges, this one was the friendly brother
Over the last 2.5 years, I’ve participated in numerous activities organised by Blogchatter,
And in turn they helped bring me to a blogging place that matters
As they complete the first year in their new web avatar
I wish that Blogchatter always stays a rising star
One that collectively raises the flag of the Indian blogging community
While holding our hands and earning our fealty
May the team continue to innovate and keep us on our toes
And safeguard us from any brickbats and blows
“Let’s Talk About You” is their motto
And they do this ably, through blogs, videos and photos
And so, team Blogchatter, I wish you the heartiest congratulations
And promise that you and I will be on long-term relations!
If you’re an Indian blogger, you know of team Blogchatter. As the voice of the Indian blogging community, this little team has done a tremendous amount of work in the digital space, in the few years that it has been active. As they celebrate one year of their new website, this little paean is my wish for them to continue to grow and succeed in every endeavour of theirs.
