Hello everyone! Well, this was a long time coming – a rewrite of my ‘all about me page’ – you know, since I have changed quite a bit since I started this blog! 😉
But to all those who are knew and visiting (firstly, WELCOME!), let’s start from the top. My name is Urvashi, but I go by Choc Chip Uru! (Cute I know :P)
I was in Year 10 and an avid baker. Every weekend, during my free time I was in the kitchen, whipping up something or another. It was beyond an obsession.
Scary, I know, I mean, most year 10s are too busy straightening their hair and wishing for their braces to come off! Anyway, I started documenting my bakes, because I wanted to keep a record of what I was doing. Amateur photographs without lighting, random scattered folders all over my computer, and small snippets of writing in a word document, telling me the date, where and when I made the dessert.
A blog, basically, in every sense, without being online.
One night, my mum and I were just casually chatting, when she said to me ‘Uru, why don’t you start a real blog?’
Pssht. That was my reply. As if anyone would want to read all about me or my bakes. Nothing special, nothing important at all!
But apparently, like in most cases (though I hate to admit this), my mum was right. For some unknown reason, I listened to her, and set up a wordpress.com blog and began to blog. First 100 word posts with photographs to make you cry. Then longer posts with ok photos. Then even longer posts and more photos. And it just kept going.
You wonderful people just kept reading!!!
I love blogging, simple as that. It has been three years almost now, and I have such amazing friends, worldwide! Everyone is so talented out there and continue to inspire me 😀
And it is not only fun, it is an outlet to express creativity and all my thoughts. Call this a personal online journal if you will 🙂
Any major changes? Not the in near future, but over the years, actually quite a few – I mean, first I was just baking. Then I started reviewing (and LOVED it!). Then I moved from wordpress.com to my own website (a very hard decision I know now because of SEO difficulties, but hopefully it will be fixed over time).
Challenges? Yes. Regrets? None.
Isn’t that what blogging is all about though? 😀
