BNLF--a blogging conference like no other!



Sometimes in life, you have  journeys that you start on, where you never know where they take you. You start on them hesitatingly, unsure of the destination. You keep going as long as you can see the road in front of you, lit with a little torchlight at times and by the sun, at times. There are moments when you doubt what you are doing. There are times when you stumble and wonder if you are lost. But you don't turn back and abandon the road half way through. You keep going. No matter how hard it is. No matter how exhausted you are. Because you are hooked. It's the one thing that you continue doing.

My blogging has been one such journey. I started this blog on 22nd October 2006. It has been nine long years now and I am now no longer the anonymous, unknown blogger that I was when I first began. The journey for me has be beautiful, exhilarating, terrifying, exciting and the magnificent--all at the same time.

And I am going to be talking about this journey at a totally fabulous International blogging conference BNLF 2015 ! (Click on link and scroll down the page for details) . Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden would be a keynote speaker too.

I am really excited about this, as I was one of those who had attended  one of the first meets that Indiblogger had  organised way back in 2008 and what is more had even blogged about it! If you want to travel back in time to read that post, click here.

You can check out my speaker profile here: https://www.bnlf.com/preeti-shenoy
And also read a curtain raiser here.

I shall definitely share with you, pictures from the event.


And yes, thank you for traveling with me on my journey!  You, dear reader, have been a great companion.
And like the movie line goes 'Everybody needs a co-pilot.'
Some, you get to meet  them at conferences like BNLF  :)

  1. Hi Preeti, I have been following your blog since 2008 and respect you so much for all your achievements. I read the free chapters from your latest book and it was amazing. It's exciting and surprising to learn about relationships and how they work. Congrats on all your successes and all the best for all that is to come.
    Cheers,

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:




3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

Love a Little stronger. Preeti Shenoy's next book releases on April 27th!

Hey!

For those of you who have read 34 bubblegums and candies, this is a new version of that book. The most popular stories from that are there is this. But there are also a lot of new stories. It has five sections-- each section has stories about a certain theme. These are all TRUE stories from my life.

It's a book very close to my heart!

Here's what the back blurb says:

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…
