My Instagram life.

Hello everyone.

Hope you’re doing well.

Yet another interesting topic of my life.

Being an extreme introvert and having an Instagram profile with 2000 followers is in itself a big deal. Without further delay lets just flip to my first page of my Instagram life.

I was following a lot of bloggers then, who had their own website where they would write something. So when I first decided to write blogs I did open my new page on WordPress and changed my personal Instagram account to a public profile. With a lot of researches online and without any human help! And thus joined the tribe. I remember I had almost 300 followers then and when I changed my profile to a public account my followers list increased to 450. So basically I started with 450 followers. And I actually thought I don’t have to do much and waited for a 1000 followers. It took me a year to complete 2000 followers, like how silly was I!😜

Little did I knew what was coming my way? It took me quite a time to understand Instagram.

There is engagement, there are numerous giveaway to increase followers, there is profile visits, there are insights, there are campaigns, collaborations and Instagram suggests the best time to post, best day to post and what not! Not to forget INSTAGRAM ALGORITHIM. I never knew about this, I thought a blogger has to write blogs, post few pictures, post stories and done! I don’t have words to explain there is so much more to it.

What I really enjoyed about Instagram then is about the collaboration that I did with few brands and felt really good that the brands trusts my work. And who doesn’t love hampers and gifts right? A did get a slight work pressure from the brands even before the deadlines. And later on whenever there were collaboration I was so worried that I started focusing and stressing more whether I will be able to satisfy the brand with my work. I did quite well with all of the collaboration, Alhamdulillah.

I started loving instagram and took all kinds of effort to keep my instagram feed good-looking! I loved the responses I got from my followers about my blogs and that really motivated. I had a lot of friends and family who checked on me on a regular basis, I must say I had an amazing bunch of people in my life. Also there were a few of my fellow bloggers whom I would always look up to whenever I had to clear my mind about anything related to social media or my blogs. I am forever grateful to those friends of mine whom I’ve never met in real life but plays a prominent role.

Another major important thing about my instagram life is about my constant supporter and a critic that I always look up to, my better half. The first glimpse of my post that goes up in the grid, every blog that I publish, the collaboration posts and stories are closely approved by him. He is the invisible person for all my social affairs. Alhamdulillah!

The main motive for me to be active on instagram is to grow my audience. I know instagram is not permanent until there is some other app taking over it like that of orkut or facebook. I am more concerned and determined about my website and that’s what matters the most for me. In order to grow my audience I need to promote my blogs through instagram and facebook.

Sometimes I feel that people already assume that you’re happy with the flow of Instagram and often forget to ask how am I doing! Because they see my social media updates and believe it!

To be real honest whatever I share ,that is not what’s actually happening in my real life. It’s just 1/4th of it!🙂

If you see a picture of a delicious food that I post don’t be fooled, may be that’s the old picture. I may post it because I miss it! I still feel good whenever I am not judged on the basis of my Instagram story! I love sharing positivity through my profile even I am in the worst mood. And believe me that is more important!

It’s sometimes okay to ask how am I doing and trust me I’ll happily answer!

I hope all goes well with my intentions in shaa allah(if allah wills)

If you feel like doing a little help for me

Introduce my instagram page and my blogs to your friends and family.

Since my niche is more of women stuff I’ll be glad to have more of female followers in the list!

That’s it for now guys,

Until we meet again

Log kya kahenge.

Hello everybody.

Hope you’re doing well.

One of the famous phrase I grew up hearing is log kya kahenge (what will people say). I am sure this is quite common in almost everyone’s life. I used to wonder who these “people” are that everyone wants to please. It took me quite a long time to know and understand the concept of this. It’s like we are living a life only to please them.

The other thing that go hand in hand with the above phrase is show off. Life has become a major competition where you’re competing with people of similar possessions. The best expensive hospitals, the best schools, best clothing, best cars, best houses etc.

i too choose the best for myself or my family, we all want best of best right? But the BEST should never turn into a show off!

We humans are never ever satisfied with whatever we have in our lives. The things you own now, was a dream few years back. But we don’t care about it, what we care is about the future plans. The more the wants are satisfies the more you ask for it.

Is the above paragraph based on economics? 🤣Well it sounded like that of a dimension law. Jokes apart that’s been life. We make life so complicated that we often forget to enjoy and believe that there’s only one life to live. For some of them life becomes stressful, complicated, depressed, sad and unhappy. When we start pleasing others that’s when life becomes unhappy.

This reminds me of a recent incident that happened in my life. Last month I had been to my native and I did get to attend a lot of weddings, family function and get together. What I started noticing is that people started asking this frequent question to me and that started bothering me a lot.

“Your daughter is already three right?

“When are u having your next baby”?

 “You should have already had your second baby by now”?

Surprisingly, these interrogating questions were asked by few people whom I met for the first time. The first few times I was asked these questions I was ignoring of course. But later on it started haunting me. I was lost in deep thoughts thinking about this.

People said,

“The 2.5 age gap is the best age difference between your kids,

“The bonding of siblings are great at this particular time,

“It’s easier to up bring 2 kids of smaller age,

“It becomes difficult once you start growing old,

“My mom will not be able to take care of me and my ‘new baby’ because even she is aging.

And a lot more.

When the suggestions are given by my family members I know it’s out of concern they have towards me and I respect it. But suggestions coming from a random person

I don’t know if all of these suggestion I got is true or false. But it made me sad. I then realized that I am losing my track and this is something that should never ever bother me.

I started thinking about few women whom I know personally and are really trying hard to have a baby. It might be the health conditions or it might be a patience test for them.

What about them?

Trust me these question are not less than a taunt.

so, Think before you speak.

On a happier note,

Let’s be happy! 😊

Let’s not make someone’s life complicated. 👍

Let’s make this place a better place to live.💕

Let’s be a better person. 😍

This is based on my experience. No offence to my dearest people who already have two or more kids 😉

That’s it for now guys.

Until we meet again,

Stick around.
