I attended Priya’s Blogging workshop on 15th July 2017 organized at Royal Orchid, Bangalore. I must say that it was very professionally organized and Priya shared a vast knowledge on blogging. She shared tools and tips for amateur bloggers who many a times don’t have an idea of how to develop their passion into a profession. People think it’s easy but trust me it takes hard work and skills to recognize your strengths and work on it. You have to keep yourself updated and use technology to the optimum.
The venue was perfect to organize such an event. The workshop was conducted with presentations and videos which Priya showcased using digital projector. High tea and delicious lunch was offered to all of us. Hands on training and in depth knowledge sharing was given for how to develop and grow your blog from the comforts of your home. She talked about content management and identifying your niche which is very important. Blog is your brand and she talked about building and marketing it through various channels. She conducted an in-depth session on content writing and social media. Blogging also involves visual treat especially for a food blogger like me and she had an interactive sessions and also shared tricks on photography with camera and mobile, food presentations etc.
Blogging is a tough job especially for people who don’t know much about using technology and how to market the blog in a right way. Brands keep looking for bloggers to promote and review their products on various platforms. Priya shared her tips and insights on how to monetize your blog. She made us participate in live brand activities which can help us to be an influencer. We had a session on affiliate marketing with Tulsi fromSpiceSafari which was very useful too. We had representatives fromPreethi Kitchen appliances who talked about their products and I’m looking forward to work with such a brand in future.
Thank you Priya Shiva for conducting this blogepreneur workshop. This motivated me to work harder and enriched me as a person. Here’s hoping and wishing you a great success ahead. You can connect with her through her blog – Priya Kitchenette
Leaving you with some pictures from the event:
PS: This is my personal opinion, which I felt should be shared. Not influenced or requested.
Since schools have reopened making easy lunch boxes is a challenge. Every day to think of snack and lunch is itself a task; now that I have decided to post pictures on Instagram. I thought might as well keep sharing recipe so that it becomes easy to keep a track of what all I made plus learn some new variations.
The other day tried and I must say it was just yummy. J Loved the sour flavor. Much healthier than the regular besan one. Also filling and the quantity enough for a family of 3. Also the flax seeds give a nice crunch.
This ready to eat packs are a boon when you get up blank in the morning but still want to fix a healthy breakfast, when you run out of batter and bored of making upma. I loved this Dhokla and since kiddo too loved this it’s going to be a regular at home.
Tasted the Pillsbury Cookie cake. The vanilla one is salty; I found the chocolate one laced with Choco chips better. It’s soft, chewy and decently sweet; as in somewhere between cookie and brownie. Comes in single serving packs.
Paneer in any style or form is welcome in my place. We all just love the paneer, be in paranthas or sabzis or biryanis. This is one such recipe I came across a few days back and was very keen on trying.
We had an morning errand to run which drained me completely by the time I came back. I already had the phulka dough ready, all I needed was to make some simple sabzi to go with. I had paneer in pantry and this came to my mind the same instant. So I experimented and when we sit to eat, hubby and kiddo gave big thumbs up to this restaurant kinda gravy. Their happiness put a big smile on my face as we all live for such happy moments.
Got to hear about this new version of crispy but not fried or baked and I was very curious to try that. Got the products from DesiVdesi a food brand that is using natural techniques in keeping the snacks retain the nutrition. You can know more about them here
Tried their Chikoo Chips which are crispy, without any preservatives or added color. . Not very sweet which means no much sugar added. Makes a good option for kids who are fussy eaters. Maybe this version would tempt them to try this fruit.
