Hello everyone!

Hope that this week has started off on a positive and a more-than-kind note for you! 🙂

Today’s post is an update on my blogging journey. It has been a little more than two months (around two weeks less to three months!) since I began this blog. This post is a bit like my last blog update post (it can also consist of some tested blogging advice), the one which describes my experiences throughout my first month of blogging. If you haven’t read that one already, do so here!

Irrespective of everything I have experienced on this exciting journey, let me start off by telling you all that my blogging journey has been amazing so far and it continues to make me happy! Blogging has given me a reason to look forward to every single day. It has been made all the more exciting and like-able, thanks to all you lovely and supportive bloggers out here!

Coming back to the update, most of June and half of July was spent thinking over the following questions which every blogger encounters;

  1. Should I get my blog self-hosted? If yes, which hosting platform should I opt for?
  2. Content generation and content promotion! (Most important – as it is quality, consistent content that will get readers interested in any blog.)
  3. Should I commit to a blog challenge?
  4. How often should I write down a blog post?
  5. Is there any way to make my blog more appealing by using another theme, opting for better pictures, getting my own ones, better lettering, etc?

The answers to some of which I am sure I will receive with time and further blogging experience!

I feel privileged that during this month, I received tons of helpful blogging advice and tips from many bloggers running their blogs successfully. I admit that I did post a lesser number of blog posts during this last month because I was a little preoccupied with a lot of issues related to my blog and gathering this wealth of information! 🙂

This month I started off by establishing a social media existence for my blog namely; a Facebook page for this blog – ‘Pooja’s rose tinted glasses‘ and an Instagram handle – life_rosetinted! Make sure that you check these out by clicking on the links above and follow me if you are interested! 🙂

Amidst all this, some striking things that I learnt during this period are as follows:

  1. The importance of a blog schedule: Consistent and planned content generation is important which is where scheduling what goes up on your blog when is so important.
  2. The importance of finding your tribe: Your tribe consists of the people who love reading what you share and would love to engage with your content. It is extremely important to think over the ideal person who you feel will be interested in your blog. This helps create and craft specific targeted content.
  3. Be you to keep your blog running successfully: Your tribe loves to engage in your posts because of you and your content so give them more of that. Being original gives your blog quality audience.
  4. It is okay to run out of ideas only to be so full of them the next second: No explaining needed for this one!
  5. Quality over quantity: Writing down one post containing well structured quality content is always better than writing down five okay ones!

Another thing I have realized is that setting down some goals will help take my blog another valuable step ahead than where it stands at the end of each month! I have thus decided to go slow and break down bigger goals into smaller ones to have steady progress (as it doesn’t make sense to simply set big monthly goals – might just stress me out!) So some of my do-able goals for the coming month are;

  1. Learning and creating at least one useful printable (freebie)!
  2. Treating my blog as an important business.
  3. Structuring quality content.
  4. Increasing my engagement with other bloggers.
  5. Look up on guest posting and decide if I should go for it.

I hope to achieve these goals successfully and set new ones in the next update post! 🙂 Wish me luck!

Another thing – I would love to know what goals you are setting for your blog(s), social media accounts etc. and what actions are you taking to achieve them. Would probably help me know a lot more about your blogging journey and blogging in general! Let us all inspire and motivate each other to blog better and grow as better bloggers! 🙂

Wish you a fantastic day! Love, Pooja. 🙂

How many times have we caught ourselves putting off enjoying our lives at the present moment? We wait for what we think is the perfect or apt time or even wait for the perfect things to revel in life’s little pleasures.

But little do we know about life & it’s plans for us. Life seldom moves forward as planned and always finds a way to surprise us.

Often times it can lead to something else along the way which might end up making one put off his or her enjoyment & happiness even further.

Life is an adventure in which every single day counts & without enjoyment or mindfulness, it can rarely be called an adventure. It takes seconds for life to change or turn around completely.

This is exactly why I am sharing this quote with you all today.

Enjoy and savour your magical life now! Do not wait for any perfect moment. That perfect moment or perfect situation we imagine to face in the future isn’t going to be any more special than it can be right now!

Have a positive day! Love, Pooja. 😊

Hello again!

‘Like wildflowers, you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.’ – E. V.

I am in love with the above quote! It shows that there is something that we can learn from every other thing around us, including flowers.

Flowers have so much beauty and contain magic within them! Magic enough to mesmerise anyone and uplift anyone’s mood in an instant! Just like the flowers in the picture above did! Simply noticing the above beauties in the morning made my day and I instantly knew that this was something that I had to share with you all!

Since it also happens to be floral Friday, I am going to list down a few things that we all can learn from flowers. Read on for some major life lessons which flowers teach us every single day;

Bloom where you are placed An important lesson for us to remember! We CAN grow to our fullest potential irrespective of where we are placed in our lives.

Spread your fragrance Each of us have a fragrance or quality which is unique to us. Never let go of it, even if times get tough!

Learn to live with thorns Not all periods of our life are meant to be celebrated. Accept that life can and will be tough. It only makes the good moments sweeter.

You can survive unfavourable conditions – Just as flowers can grow on plants which grow through cracks, we too can find our greatest victories and achieve maximum growth even in adverse conditions.

Stay rooted Even on reaching your highest goals do not forget where you first started from. Stay humble and rooted to your branch.

The power of silence – Flowers grow to their fullest and bloom even in silence.

Beauty is diverse Every flower is different. There are so many varieties of flowers but each is beautiful in its own way! None can be compared with the other.

This, of course isn’t an exhaustive list but all that I could compile for now. Will add some more in another blog post later! Concluding this post with another quote that I love;

‘The flower which grows in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.’

Hope you have an amazing Friday! Stay happy! 😊

Love, Pooja.

Hello!

It has been less than a month since I started my blog, Life – Rose-Tinted, and I am thankful to you all for all your likes, comments and support! I truly appreciate it! You truly inspire me to do better with each passing day!

For today’s blog post, I have decided to go ahead with the Thursday thoughts theme.

I love reading thoughts as they help us become better people. They are an entire knowledge source within themselves. This is why I am sharing some of my favourite thoughts with you. Simply a collection of some lovely thoughts which I love reading through again and again. Going through them will give you that much-needed boost for the day and fill you with purpose and inspiration!

Read on for some food for thought –

‘Thousands of candles can be lighted from one single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.’

‘If you have the power to make someone happy, even if it is to bring a smile to their faces, do it! The world needs more of that.’

‘Shared joy is double joy.’

‘To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.’

‘A meaningful life is not being rich, being popular, being highly educated, or being perfect. It’s about being real, being humble, being able to share ourselves and touch the lives of others.’

‘Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is.’

‘There is no path to happiness, happiness is the path.’

‘We all have a unique art, a personal passion that serves as a vessel through which our souls speak. True happiness is found by filling it and purpose is fulfilled by pouring it out.’

‘Optimism is a happiness magnet. If you stay positive, good things and good people will be drawn to you.’

‘Our days are happier when we give people a bit of our heart than a piece of our mind.’

‘It’s all contained within the little things in life.’

‘Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light!’

‘I AM, are the two most powerful words. For what you put after them shapes your destiny.’

 

What do you think about these thoughts? Take some moments to reflect over these. Let me know about some of your favourites too! Wish you all a thoughtful Thursday!

Love, Pooja.

Hello!

I am sure that reading that title above is enough to let you know that I am about to share an infographic with you all today!

I am a huge fan of infographics! With their beautiful colours, fonts and clarity, they state information out to the reader in the most engaging way possible. Personally, I feel that information conveyed through infographics is better understood as well as retained by our senses and the brain. This is why, I have tried my hand at creating an infographic today!

Read on and do let me know if you liked my first attempt at creating an infographic! If you have any more tips for me, do feel free to drop in a comment below! 

Hope you enjoyed reading through!

Think over these reasons and have a thoughtful Tuesday, everyone!

Love, Pooja.

Hello to everyone!

It’s a lovely day out here today! A perfect one to pen down all the random and colorful thoughts swirling around in my head. I can hear the birds chirping away as I sit by the window and I can say that it is the most relaxing setting to start the soothing and creative process of writing.

Basically, this conducive environment is what eventually led me to my WordPress reader and I got instantly hooked to the collection of lovely posts I came across. The WordPress reader and all my fellow bloggers are definitely my new-found love! 🙂

As I was scrolling through, one particular post caught my attention! The one referring to the weekly meme, ‘The Wondrous Words Wednesday’! Sounded very interesting to me as I simply love words! I believe that each word, be it a little one or a big one, contains enough magic and power to help catch a reader’s heart!

So here I am, writing a blog post pertaining to this amusing weekly meme! I have picked up this challenge and have a few ideas, as well as an apt image for this topic! What else could any blogger wish for? I am now cutting down the talk and my top three entries are as follows;

Word number one – Sophrosyne – This is, in fact, a Greek word which relates to a Greek concept of possessing a healthy state of mind, especially one which is characterized by moderation, self control, an awareness of a person’s true self which ultimately leads to true happiness! I simply love the deeper meaning behind this word as well as the sound of it! It feels calming and soothing to me somehow. 🙂

Word number two – ‘Serendipity‘ – I am in love with this word and it has been a part of my screensaver since ages. It means finding something really beautiful without even looking for it. Few words can match up to the magic and wonder of this word! This word makes me believe that magic is just waiting around the corner, ready to happen to anyone, anytime! 🙂

Word number three – ‘Elysian‘ – This word is used to describe anything that is creative or beautiful, perfect and peaceful or divinely inspired. This word, its meaning and the way it sounds when one utters it instantly caught my attention! This is one word I love to use often!

Of course, there are many other lovely words worth mentioning here but these are all for today. Maybe I might follow up with a few more later. Wrapping up my post with the beautiful ambiance these words have created for now! Let me know what you think about them and if these words speak volumes to you too! What other words can you think of? Do let me know!

Passing over lots of love and happiness to you through my rose-tinted glasses! 🙂

Wondrous Words Wednesday

Hello again!

It’s been a few days since I last added a post here. Today, I am going to talk about why I have chosen to name my site Pooja’s rose-tinted glasses.

Since a long time, I always wanted to start a blog or a site of my own. In spite of this, I had never been able to zero in on what exactly I would write about. I followed countless of amazing blog posts on almost every topic one could think of and ended up being even more confused than ever!

But all these blogs made me realize one common thing – they all seemed to solve some or the other question and ultimately share joy with others! So I thought, hey! Why not start a blog on happiness itself? Writing about being happy would, no doubt, add even more happiness & fulfillment to my life!

The next question was what to name my blog & this was very easy. I wanted to write about how happiness can be found in tiny ways every single day. To make you all see them, I would have to give you a peek through my rose-tinted glasses! I simply loved the name and decided to go ahead with it!

Happiness is all around us but all it takes is a thankful heart to see it! Let’s stop being blind to it all from now onwards!

With this mission, I hope to make you all a little bit more happy via many more posts to follow!

Let’s spread joy!

If you know someone who needs to add that daily dose of happiness into their lives, do not forget to share this post with them! Let us all see life through rose-coloured glasses!

Love, Pooja.
