Hello! Welcome to my blog.
My name is Saumya Bhasin. I started blogging in the spring of 2017. I created this space for dialogue to engage and challenge my ideas. My personal essays explore stories and essays about life, travel, careers, and basically just anything.
I’m a twenty-something year old and I live in an urban locality of New Delhi, India.
I’m an aspiring freelance writer (view all my projects and portfolio here) who is still learning about life and its ways.
I have a deep admiration for books, words and languages. I love to travel. I have always had a love for music. I believe that practicing any form of art is the ultimate way to make the soul grow, and everybody must do it. Also, I am a beloved sister to one, and daughter of the best parents ever.
I love hearing back from readers, so feel free to leave your thoughts in the “comments” section, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Every comment is read and appreciated!
Someone asked me why I do not use pictures on my blog.
After hours of googling ‘How to promote your blog without images’ and not getting much out of it, I thought and came up with some semi-valid excuses (sorry!):
1. I am not a professional photographer. Don’t know much about the art. Would love to learn it some day. Until then, happily creating my only-text content.
2. I like to paint pictures with my words. Though this one is far less likely – I’m still learning how to do that with perfection. Hoping to reach there some day.
3. I don’t like being photographed. Check out this blog post to find out how I managed to get a few decent ones, thanks to a few friends.
If you’d like to see some of my pictures, follow me on Instagram.
Okay. I’m done. Thank you for showing interest! More soon.
Have fun perusing!
