Good to See You!

image

My Dear Reader,

Hello from Shivangi. First thank you for reading a little about me. It is really good to see you here!

To tell you the truth, I am glad that I am on WordPress and finally living my dream of being a writer. I am from India and moved to the US three years back with my husband and two kids. 

I don’t know whether I am a good or a bad writer but I write because I have to. I don’t know how much I will be read or what kind of work I will do here, considering I have small kids and a household to tend to, but I am glad I made a start in January 2015.

I love stories and all genres of storytelling. We cannot escape stories, it is everywhere, and each one of us have a story to tell. Therefore, the stories you will read here are yours, mine and everybody’s. Hence the name of the blog – Stories by Shivangi. Hope you will find them good.

 Apart from writing, I love sketching, reading, travelling and watching films. By grace of God, recently, I have written a kids ebook – The Princess with Brown Teeth (It is free) and hope to keep writing for the little ones.

I am a complete believer…I love the almighty and know that with prayer, meditation and goodwill…one can achieve even the ‘impossible’.

I am just hoping to entertain and learn something good here.

Do take the poll before leaving, your opinion is invaluable to me. Wishing you good health and happiness always. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. So kind of you Nimi for nominating me. I am truly honoured and humbled. I had already been nominated by Vagabond Velda last month…but it still means so much that you took me into consideration.
      Cheers and be well,
      Shivangi

    1. I cannot express how I honoured I feel on being nominated by you Millie. You are a fantastic writer and I enjoyed reading your wonderful answers and facts. All I can say is a big ‘Thank You’ for considering me for nomination. It motivates me to write more.
      I have earlier been nominated by Vagabond Velda and Nimi Naren for this…and I am thankful to all of you. I had accepted it the first time…but due to time constraints I cannot acknowledge the award again. But thank you, God Bless You!

  2. Just to let you know that I’ve nominated you for The Creative Blogger Award. I would be delighted if you accept, but if you are unable to do so, that’s OK. The rules are on my post :

    Hi, Shivangi. Once again, I know how busy you are, so if you’re unable to accept, that’s OK. But, I want you to know that I find your writing extremely creative, so this award suits you perfectly. I nominated you for the shorter version, which takes much less time to do – but if you’d prefer the first one, which also asks for 5 facts about yourself, feel free to do that one. Millie 🙂

    1. I am honoured Millie, thank you so much for believing in me and finding my works creative. And then coming from you it is a huge compliment😀. The gesture is so beautiful. I will accept the shorter version and write a post in a while. Thanks again and you know what, I love castles too, only I have never seen them in real life😀

  3. hello Shivangi,
    Good points:
    1) You posted your pic on this about page – this relates visitors with you and recollects your blog better. Few people hide identity and it may generally don’t help.
    2) Your first para on this about page makes a delight and welcome to readers.
    3) You added a context based pic in your blog posts contents, it inspires reading.
    3) Short paras in most blog posts, it makes reading better and comfortable.
    4) You articulate your ideas/thoughts in a much simple language rather using tough vocabulary/phrases.

    Bad points:
    Few blog posts are little lengthy overall, you may recheck on how you may make it little small. Any blog post readable in one screen without scrolling is the best.

    Look shivangi, I shared my thoughts with high optimism for you to have great success.

    Glad you follow my blog – http://YourWellWisherProgram.wordpress.com

  5. Let me tell I have just taken to writing and I am myself surprised leave aside my known friends and people.
    As you say :”We cannot escape stories, each one of us have a story to relate! I have learnt that life is all about stories of all kinds..but it is up to us to categorise it..finished, unfinished, tragic, comic… Our life story is what we make of it!”
    When the time comes it is right and it is right because the almighty has thought it right.
    Grab the time.
    I keep saying- the busy guys have always got time.
    My Fondest Regards and Best Wishes in all your Endeavours.
    Shiva

    1. Thank you so much Millie. I am honored and delighted. I am afraid I will not be able to acknowledge it in a separate post because of time constraints but nevertheless I feel on top of the world. You are one of the finest bloggers around and I never miss your works. Coming from you the awards mean a lot. Big thanks😀😀😀

    1. Hi..I had been away for a while…and then kids would not let me blog in peace 🙂 but now I would try my best to write and read too. Your works are very original always. Looking forward to reading your next😀

    1. I am honoured Susan, thank you for nominating me. I appreciate this very much. You write beautifully and to be chosen by you means a lot.
      But it is unfortunate that time does not permit me to accept it publicly in a blog post. I have an infant and a toddler to care for 24/7 … So hope you understand the rush. I get very little time to write.
      Nevertheless, a big Thank You for the honour😀😀😀

  7. Hello, Shivangi. I read a few stories from your professional writing when visiting under my other blog at Tracesofthesoul and you truly have talent. I loves stories too…we can teach so much as well with stories. I wish I had written some stories I made up for my children when they were little. With small ones time is tricky so enjoy your wee ones, they grow so fast and even if it just a paragraphy, a poem, a sentence of reflection…write a tiny bit each day if you can. Namaste, Cheryl-Lynn aka Tournesol (for my poetry)
