Last post of the blog marathon .Post 30

Today is the last day of the 30 day blog marathon. Eevery single day, the last thirty days, there has been a new post on this blog. Truly not an easy task at all. I had asked a few of my closest friends if they could help me out by writing guest posts for me. Two of them obliged.

Thanks to Satish and Ramesh who both wrote a superb guest post each.

Satish's post is here:  How India won the world cup ( a hilarious account of behind the scenes story)

Ramesh's post is this: The apple of my eye   (a truly lovely confession of love)

Both the above posts are really worth a read.

Apart from the above two posts, on some days I had had such a tough day that all I wanted to do was to curl up in bed with a hot mug of chocolate and read, under the duvets, with the Air conditioning swicthed on. Instead, I had to sit at my laptop and churn out a post.

A big thank you to those who commented very regularly. i have managed to reply to most. (except for one or two posts). Your comments kept me going really.

My personal favourites among the posts I wrote for this blog marathon are the following:


Some connections are just meant to be

Daily star quota

and of course, the best one

Creating happy memories

If you are a regular reader do let me know which ones were your favourite? Which ones did you like the most?

Now that I have written for thirty consecutive days, I shall be taking a much deserved break for a few days.
But you can be assured I'll come back.

The blog and me--it's a long term relationship. And I don't walk away from  such relationships easily ;-)

So, see you soon.

  1. Congratulations Preeti - a superb marathon. I know what an effort it takes ; perhaps an expression of the joy which we readers take in following your blog, might make it all worthwhile. Bravo.

  2. I liked 'How India won the world cup' a lot...all those 'rituals' truly helped India get the cup..me and my friends were not too far away from matching those 'rituals' :)

  3. Congrats preeti - 30-day marathon would have been a daunting task and you did full justice to it and kept us asking for more!!!:) My list also goes almost the same way -'creating happy memories', 'slicing the silence', 'on loving someone', 'daily star quota', etc and the snapshots have been my favourites.
    Take a break and be back soon! :)

    The apple of my eye --This is an exception, I could never guess what it was till the very end and hence it was so interesting :)

    Marriage and freedom - Topic close to the heart, did not post a comment as I had so much to say that I did a blog on my site.

    The magic pill - Another good one on the benefits of healthy lifestyle

    Save a life--it costs you nothing.

    A little love and words that make a difference

    The above 2 were so insightful on simple human behaviour and how we as individuals can help

  10. Congrats Preeti on succesfully completing the blog marathon. All your posts were unique and both the guest posts were also equally enjoyable.
    Inspired by your marathon I've also started writing consistently[i hope, with a new born baby and a 4year old I'm striving to achieve it]I'm planning to atleast publish 3posts a week this month.
    Hope to see more of your posts soon.

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
