On the same day previous year, I started my journey as a blogger. I created the website TheMoodRecipes to express my feelings.
Pratiksha was the first among friends to join me in my journey, followed by Faiz and Riya. I was good with the technical part, but never thought that I could start blogging.
The First person I would like to thank is Pratiksha, I still remember the day, when I approached her for a collaboration together. Well, she already had a good amount of readers. Thanks to her strong feminist views. She is the first and among the very rare person, who believed we can make it together.
After that I was approached by Riya and Faiz, Once we started writing, we all started getting love and support from our friends and families.
Let’s come to the point on why did I name the page like this.
Well, the readers, be it anyone, we all need varieties. Just like appropriate ingredients make a perfect food recipe, the same way different articles for different mood make it easier for the readers to relate.
Sometimes, at some weekends, we need a good romantic story, at times we need a thriller. At times, when one is down and has nobody to approach, a good psychological blog helps us to get over it. So we made sure that our readers get everything at a single destination. Our writers too has the freedom of writing anything that they are feeling. Hence we could not come up with a better name.
The Mood Recipes is the recipe by the writers for the readers.
Here are some of the stats for TheMoodRecipes:
More than 1k fans in Facebook
More than 16k readers in Pinterest
Hundreds of Likes, thousands of shares and comments.
Domain authority updated to 10 and Page authority to 34.
I would like to take a moment out and thank each one of you – the readers, my co-writers, guest writers and Editors for the lovely responses, criticisms and all kind of feedbacks. This is the first time, I am writing, so thank you all once again for supporting me throughout my journey.
Honestly it feels great to express my feelings, thoughts and everything without holding on to something on my mind.
Here are few words from my fellow writers:
I started blogging when I thought I have lost purpose of life as I was diagnosed with a disease that made me bedridden. I had been a person who could never sit at home doing nothing, so when I was asked for complete bedrest, the only thing I did was I wrote. Whatever came in my mind I wrote… To my shock, few people even liked them. One of those people was Samar, the admin of our page, The Mood Recipes.
He approached me one fine day that he wants to start a page of his own and whether I would like to join it or not. The best part was he gave me full freedom to write on anything. So, I did.
I joined his page that became ours. Many writers got added and few of them could not continue as well due to their personal issues. Thankfully even when I became irregular for like months, Samar stood by me and gave me time.
I came back, I again failed at times. He had my back. I continued.
The page gave me few good friends as well and some great responses as well from our readers which inspired me to continue. So here we are today, completed one year. With almost 20000 readers a month and 5000 subscribers to our website.
I would like to thank every individual for reading, for giving us feedback, for loving us. Happy to be a part of the team.
Being a part of The Mood Recipes is very special for me. It is a platform where I could show my creativity. This one year, which I have spent with the crew of The Mood Recipes, is amazing. I have made some good friends. Editors position is always been feared., as editors will find out the faults in your creation. But being part of this groups, I realized that editors’ position can loved too. I am passionate about writing and creativity and I got the platform here, for my creativity and to polish others creativity. I am a proud member of The Mood Recipes group and I am thankful to you all for the love we have received from you.
Journey has been good so far, got to explore many genres while writing for this blog. Got good response and encouragement and finally wrote an entire short story which i never thought about.
Looking forward to writing more from some of my favorite genres like thriller, horror and psychological/sociopath. Much like the “Psycho” movie.
Hope you all will enjoy reading the short yet exciting posts coming up on the next few months.
