As part of the team..at IndiBlogger
Wow! It’s close to 3 years since I have been with IndiBlogger as part of the core team. And I think it’s safe to say that my life before and after IndiBlogger is completely different! This post may not exactly be a comparison of before and after but it’s definitely going to be about things that I have learned and earned being on this side of IndiBlogger!
It took me sometime to be fully ‘accepted’ by the team. (Hate to think of those initial months of struggle! I had to work really hard on my sense of humor to get the team to take me seriously. I remember when the very first time one of them smirked at a joke I had cracked – It was at that moment that I thought I had some scope of getting ‘in’.)Thus began my journey with IndiBlogger. Since then, I have learned many things which I could not have imagined to learn had I not been part of IndiBlogger.
- We work really hard before any IndiBlogger meet. We try to show up for each IndiBlogger meet with our best smiles.
Since the team is scattered across the four corners of the country, I have learned how to make it work for us. The team has taught me that distance is no limitation when it comes to sharing creative ideas….
I will be honest, the distance sometimes makes it difficult to collectively appreciate stuff like this, but we get by..
Through ups and downs, we have come a long way. The entire team is like one big family. We all stand by each other through thick and thin. I am especially thankful to all of Vineets and two of Nihals – all six of them have been a source of great support to me as part of IndiBlogger Mumbai Team.
- You thought you had one too many IndiBlogger T shirts? Well, you have no idea what our wardrobes look like. And it’s not just our wardrobes, BTW. We have IndiBlogger painted all over our lives! 🙂 (I wish I could show you the sticker on the back of our car too. But you can guess what it looks like!)
I have spoken about what I have learned from IndiBlogger. Here’s something that I earned here – a husband. No no, I didn’t win him in an IndiBlogger contest. In fact, he was more like my consolation prize since I am not allowed to officially participate in any IndiBlogger contests! But I am quite happy with my prize; thankfully haven’t had any issues with the its delivery, redemption, utilization. The prize arrived on time and I haven’t had to raise any support tickets for the same!
As you can imagine, my life has changed completely since this happened!
Since the time I have been with the team, I have seen us dealing with many tough moments. And I must add, with all the madness that surrounds us, we sometimes get disillusioned and clueless about the way ahead. But Adina always saves the day! She is possibly the most prudent member of the team and each of us reach out to her every once in a while for advice in various matters. We always come back happy 🙂
So that is how life has changed for me since IndiBlogger happened. To sum up in a line, it’s been a complete rock and roll all the way! How and why I got into the IndiBlogger team is also quite a story, but we will save it for another post.
