It’s been a month since we launched IndiAanya. And all I can say to everyone is thank you. Thank you for reading and encouraging and letting us know you like this little space we’ve created; that you appreciate how our authors are writing from their hearts and sharing their stories.
It’s been a great month.
Now that August is in the books and September is here, we decided to look back at some of the things we've learned so far during our one-month run. So I thought I’d take a minute to share those things with you all and let you know what to expect here moving forward. Shall we?
- The topics that seemed to be of the most interest to our readers were those dealing with relationships and women’s issues. We want to continue to have a wide variety of topics covered, but this helps us to know what our readers are most keen to hear more about so we can make sure to include plenty of these types of posts for you.
- While the majority of our readers are in India (yay!) we have gotten hits from all over the world. This leaves us scratching our heads and asking “Who do we know in Iraq?!” It’s exciting to see the blog expanding to parts unknown and hopefully encouraging readers who might be facing immense challenges right now.
- In August we focused on Hope and had thought to have a single topic per month, but honestly we all found that a bit too restrictive. So we’ve decided that at this point we’re not going to have any set themes unless we decide to do something special in the future. Which could happen. Or not. We’re full of surprises over here or perhaps just indecisive.
- We also learned that we have very limited WordPress skills, but thankfully there are some of us that are excited to learn, and others who are excited for them to do just that.
- That when your son is left on his own to cook Maggi Noodles and forgets to put the water in the bowl then puts them in the microwave, the burned smell that permeates your house will last for days. And days. Okay, maybe just one of us learned this, but it’s important.
- What a Gravatar is.
- That this blogging thing takes a bit more work than we had originally thought, but we completely love it and can’t wait to share what our writers have in store for you all this month.
That’s a little bit about what we’ve learned during this process. We are always open to suggestions, so if you have one, or two, drop us an email or leave a comment below. We want this to be a community, so we care what you think!
What’s one thing new you’ve learned this month? Share in the comments below.
