Shardul Pandey interviews only those who own their domain in webspace for doing business on Internet so if you too want to get interviewed please examine your domain at sangkrit.net before to e-mail all results to firstname.lastname@example.org.
[quote style=”1″]When with some of your unique idea about enhancing utility of Internet you create a website on your domain and stay focused on it, I become more than willing for interviewing you as a freedom fighter whether you think so or not but you certainly become one for establishing Internet world order.
That’s why I appeal you to bring most of things at your domain under GPL as it is the very nature of Internet that must be left open, free, fluid and live for the rest of humanity
I welcome you in the Kingdom of Freedom Tracy, please tell our netizens about yourself?
I am a former radio morning show host turned Stay At Home Mother after we moved from Boston to San Francisco. I am mother to two little girls, an almost 6 year old and a 2 ½ year old. I needed an outlet for my humor and a way to connect with other people about the foibles of parenting, relationships, growing older, and whatever strikes my sense of humor. So I started Momaical Momaical.Com. My blog is intended to be a funny and lighthearted take on the minutiae of daily life/parenting. My tagline is “trying not to raise a flock of assholes”. I also host a blog called The Epistolarians. It’s a compilation blog of about 25 amazing women bloggers and can be found at http://www.theepistolarians.blogspot.com.
Additionally, I was a panelist on Huffington Post Live! about marriage and fidelity. I am a regular contributor to: Families in the Loop, Mamas Against Drama, Mamapedia, In The Powder Room, Bonbon Break, BlogHer and BloggyMoms. I have been published in the series of books Life Well Blogged: No Laughing Allowed, To Bliss and Back, Holly Daze and in the upcoming series Bloggy Moms Guide to a Better Blog and have a few other irons in the fire.
How exactly your idea sparked? What philosophy drives you for doing this?
For years I had people telling me I should write a blog because the way I tell stories is entertaining. I hadn’t even read too many blogs before I started writing mine – which is probably a good thing so my product is completely mine instead of a hybrid of other popular blogs. I write to make people laugh. I keep writing when I hear that people are laughing at my anecdotes – and are coming back for more. Laughter is a panacea for all of life’s struggles.
How much time you spend on blogging ? How do you stay so up-to-date with information that you post on your blog ? Any weblogs you follow ?
The information is based upon my life – so it gets written about in real time. I try to write for at least an hour daily. Some days allow for it – other days do not.
What makes your endeavors unique on Internet ?
I’m hoping that my humor, intelligence and “voice” are what make my writing unique. There are so many amazing writers and bloggers in the blogosphere. When you read a plethora of blogs, it becomes challenging not to emulate some of the styles of the good ones. So, I try to take a break from reading and brainstorm a bunch of my posts as to not unintentionally copy another great idea. I own my writing and want others to come back time and again to find out just what I’m saying next.
Any future plans ? Working on some other projects also ?
Gosh, good question. That’s what I’m trying to wrap my brain around right now – the “what’s next” for my writing/blogging. And, more importantly – how do I make some money doing what I love! I’d like to find that elusive thing that goes viral – but who the heck knows what that may be!?! I’m hoping some major organization will come knocking at my door with a fistful of cash, begging to hire me for my wit and wisdom. However, that’s highly improbable. So, I’ll just keep growing my grassroots campaign for my blog, writing and other endeavors! I have an idea for a book rolling around my cerebellum. As soon as I can find enough time to blow dry my hair on a daily basis – I may also be able to scrape together a few minutes to start writing it.
What have you found to be the most challenging part in blogging ?
Finding the time to concentrate! I have two little ones that demand constant attention. If they’re not all up in my mix, it’s probably because they have duct taped the dog to the fender of the car or are painting a masterpiece on our hallway wall. So – trying to squeeze in a few minutes to myself – while simultaneously hoping the creative juices are complying in those nanoseconds….that’s my challenge
What efforts you do for promoting your blog and building your readership ?
Well, I am active in the social networks: Twitter, Facebook, Triberr, Stumble Upon, Pinterest, Google +. I also participate in blog hops and hit as many blogs as I can. Plus, I drink my milk, have a lucky rabbit’s foot and make wishes on stars. Something has to work, right? Right? Anyone?
I am open for interviewing every upcoming individual, who owns a domain to somehow create virtual wealth in webspace since sustaining freedom is mostly built around domains running wonderful utilities in webspace that human-beings enjoy. What is your opinion for continuing this?
I am working hard to create a space that people can escape the craziness of living and escape for a few minutes of comic relief. I want people to know they can hit my blog and laugh at intelligent commentary about parenting, relationships, family and life! And, I promise I won’t let fame go to my head and start wasting my fortune on buying strange crystals and scratch tickets.
What is your ultimate message for netizens ?
Be true to yourself and own your writing. You are the only you there is out there! Don’t try to be someone else – it shows in your work! And, if you’re not enjoying it – you’re not doing it right!
