WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING? DID ANYONE, IN PARTICULAR, INSPIRE YOU TO START BLOGGING?
I have a strong passion for writing…. I started my blog in my first pregnancy where I felt the need to hear people out and at the same time share my thoughts and feelings. I thought a blog could be the best way to serve the purpose.
TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR BLOG, THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE NAME AND HOW YOU DECIDED WHAT TO BLOG ABOUT.
The name of the blog is actually inspiring for we woman in particular…. i wanted to show the world that a woman is a home maker and not just a wife…. hence it for the first half of the name….”Perfect home maker”….. the next part was basically as i wanted to do things in the light of Islam…. so I added “the halal way”. And it got it’s name as “Perfect Home Maker – The halal way.”
WHAT’S THE MOST CHALLENGING THING ABOUT BEING A BLOGGER AND BLOGGING?
The most challenging thing about blogging is definitely managing time…. I being a working mom , &, a mother of 3 kids face time management as the biggest challenge.
DO YOU STRUGGLE TO FIND THE TIME TO BLOG? HOW DO YOU MANAGE YOUR TIME?
I mostly stay up till Fajr and that’s the best time I’m able to give to my blogging.
HAVE YOU EVER FELT OVERWHELMED WITH BLOGGING?
Definitely, I have felt overwhelmed when people like your work and tell u that we were able to do this because of your timely reminders… it feels good to hear this.
HAVE YOU HAD ANY OPPORTUNITIES ARISE AS A RESULT OF BLOGGING? WHERE DO YOU SEE BLOGGING IN 5 YEARS? WILL YOU STILL BE DOING IT IN SHAA ALLAH?
I haven’t got any opportunities yet….. and I’m pretty much not sure where my blogging will take me after 5 years… All I know is I intend to be consistent in my work now and would definitely love any fruitful opportunities my way.
WHAT ADVICE AND TIPS WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE WHO MAY BE THINKING OF STARTING A BLOG?
