It was mid March when I got to know of the buzz of the A2Z challenge by blogchatter. The whole twitter timeline was buzzing with their theme reveals and plans about how they would go about this challenge. I felt it something intriguing. I loved blogging and even though I used to write quite often, sometimes I felt I needed a more challenging goal to keep me blogging. Something that would make this process of blogging more engaging and enlighting.That’s when I scratched this hashtag of A2Z blogging challenge and decided to enter it.
The 26 days of the blogging challenge did give the adreline rush I needed! The excitement of publishing a new article daily with lots of comments and likes on the previous ones and some amazing tips and tricks from fellow bloggers added more spark to it.
What enhanced the charm was the announcement of the blogchatter ebook carnival! This carnival gave all the bloggers a chance to become authors and live their dreams through the posts they write for the A2Z blogging challenge.
I always wanted to become a writer. This chance was God sent for me. But for some reasons I was quite nervous for the same. I even deleted the mail containing the steps of registering for the carnival and thought to skip it for this year. As it was my first year for the challenge and they were loads talented writers and bloggers already registered for it.
But then when I saw the excitement of my fellow bloggers, even some of them were debutant just like myself, I gave myself a chance for it. Slowly and steadily following their guidelines, I started doing the editing and proofreading if my posts. Not to forget the blogchatter guidelines mail and Facebook videos helping a lot in this process.
And then, after some days my ebook was ready with that glamorous cover that said it all that was inside.(I actually took a lot of pains to find a good cover image and work on it). No one at my home knew what I was up to and it came as a huge surprise for all when my ebook was finally published.
The pride I felt is beyond description. I felt I have won an Olympic medal or something. Being a from a conservative background and being super busy with three kids and a full huge family, establishing this was just a war won without any ammunition. But, won did I!
You won’t believe it, I actually downloaded my ebook thrice and read it all again and again. Just the look of it, gave me goosebumps of excitement.
Then came the sharing and making it public! The huge rush of congrats and ‘aww, you never told us you were writing a book’ and ‘how you managed something’ made it more awesome. My friends and followers loved reading it dearly and each complimented me after their reading. Some even pointed out some mistakes, but I am glad they cared to read it so attentively.
Everything was lovely about being an author. I can now proudly ipdatey social media profiles as being ‘an author of The A2Z of Globetrotting!’ Even my husband startrd sharing my book’s link to all his friends and colleagues and the pride I saw in his eyes still makes me feel on could 9. After all, he is the driving force I have in my life. Always urging me to do better.
I couldn’t stop thanking blogchatter for giving me the first break of my life and my fellow bloggers for the help and inspiration they provided. Thanks to all my readers and friends and followers and my well wishers, even if I try, I could never forget these precious moments of being an author of my first ebook!!
