Another milestone #Blogbuddy


Life never stops surprising you!!

I started blogging in 2011 but I got to know blogging as it is in 2015 by a chance meeting with blogchatter. Blogchatter hasn't just made me a frequent blogger but enlightened me to actual blogging. I started to blog as I had heard people can even earn money by blogging...hahaha...yes money was my motive...and even today I am no way around it.

If you'll go to the earlier posts on my blog they are a mix of almost everything. I per se don't even want to go there ;)

When I saw blogchatter they were announcing blogbuddy 1.0 and luckily I made the list. Though it'll be a year this December that I joined blogbuddy but there are umpteen things I learned.

I have met several sets of people and each and everyone has their specific specialities and genres. Blogging requires a lot of effort and dedication. It never is and never was only about writing.  It is about writing with reading, sharing and promoting. The more the availability of Internet the more important it is to use the Internet.

Now we are embarking on blogbuddy 3.0

Today I believe I have actually upped my mark and working on effectively to move ahead. The quantum of growth I have made is something which I never thought of. I want to continue the same and dedicate more to blogging than I actually do. My new buddy group is full of people highly experienced in blogging and I am sure helping each other we all are going to move further ahead.

Expecto Patronum

I am a Blogbuddy with Blogchatter :) :)

The Martian

We were out for a family dinner and I always look forward to these dinners. It's great time to hang out with the entire family, chit-chat, loads of fun and some intelligent interesting conversations too.

What was interesting that night was “The Martian “

We entered the hotel and as we took the stairs to the restaurant I caught a glimpse of “The Martian” running on the HUGE TV… yes it was HUGE, in the lobby. And it all started the entire time from there to the table the topic was “The Martian “.

I will definitely suggest anyone to everyone to watch this movie. Though “The Martian “ is a sci-fi but if you look at it hard it is much more than that.

“The Martian “ is being directed by Ridley Scott, based on Andy Weir's 2011 novel The Martian. Well till date I haven't read the book but as per the movie it revolves around how one astronaut is left behind at Mars, how he survives and is being rescued back to earth.

Going by the same most people may let it pass if they are not interested in sci-fi but actually it is about life. The way I see it I found it very motivating. It actually is like documenting what we read in many self -help books.

The movie shows the main protagonist’s struggle to stay active and motivated alone on a planet with no communication, no contact, not even any faintest idea whether people know he is alive or not.

The main points that I grab from “The Martian” are -

It says it loud and clear that despite all odds one needs to keep going on never quit .

Self motivation is the biggest of all.

Study hard, because knowledge and learning help at every stage of your life.

Importance of team, one person can perform to his own strengths but he needs a strong team to carry forward. A team can pull up one at his worst and brings everyone at the same level.

A Leader has to take the initiative and exemplify.

The movie is gripping if you like sci-fi, but as I say just look at it closer and it may win anyone's heart.

And here are few of my favourite dialogues --

“Do your math"

“Everyday I go outside because I can"

“In your face.................. " go watch "The Martian" for this one ;)
