2019 has been an extremely thrilling ride. As a writer, this has been one of most fulfilling year. Firstly, we began with the weekly #SocialCalendar with theme based posts.

This theme and the regular #MicrotaleMonday posts led to the publication of The Untold Stories (which is a collection of 131 microtales)

My love for traveling and writing came out in the form of the #TravelerTuesday posts. Under these, I wrote about places from across the world which I set foot on. Here’s a look back at the top 2 out of these travel blogs.

The topmost is our travel tale on Cube houses @ Rotterdam. Here’s a glimpse at our social media post around it.

Our second best travel tale was our anniversary getaway @ Anchaviyo Resort in Palghar, India. Here’s a glimpse at our social media post around this place.

Other than blogging, I also focused on my poetry through the #VerseWednesday posts. Here is a look at two of the best/top poems from this segment.

We changed the Instagram look and theme twice in 2019, which have led to so much appreciation (and ultimately also resulted in overall increase in traffic, engagement, followers and likes)

All because we used the 9Square app for uploading the book cover of A Rustic Mind and then didn’t want to hamper it.

So, for a while we had this theme:

Then after a while we changed it to this theme (which is our current theme too)

In other writing achievements, which went on to make another one of the top posts of 2019, we had the book teaser post (of my four published books)

Some of you might be unaware that besides being a writer, I’m an editor too. This skill of mine too found wings in 2019. I edited a fellow author’s book. The post announcing his book cover release became one of our top 9 posts of 2019.

Here’s a look at the post:

Midway through the year our Instagram page crossed 5k followers and a few months after that, we crossed 10k followers on Instagram. The posts announcing our gratitude on this made 2 out of the top posts of 2019.

Here’s a glimpse at our 5k followers post.

Thanks to this overwhelming love and support from our Insta fam, I became an influencer. Which meant new blogging collaboration opportunities. Under this we started the #Review section on our blog and social media posts.

Our next (and last) top most is one such review collaboration post. Me being a travel enthusiast had been looking for a good passport cover and found my answer through Red Moments.

Here’s a look at the Instagram post.

All in all, 2019 has been a roller coaster ride of writing journey and I hope to continue providing good content in 2020 as well. A huge thank you to all followers and readers of my posts and blogs. And here’s me wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

Keep supporting and following!!
