New kids on  the blog

Blogs are an excellent way to put down one’s thoughts and ideas. The city, in fact, has been seeing an increase in the number of bloggers in recent times. That includes students as well.


Sonal Shenoy, a student of Christ University, has a writers’ blog titled ‘Universe and Beyond’. She says that she gets the ideal environment to blog at home because she can think freely when she is comfortable. She chose this name because she wanted people to know that the blog would not be limited to one or two areas of interest; she would be writing on almost everything that came to her mind.

Her blog has film and book reviews, thoughts on abstract things and a lot more about activities she enjoys.

She writes mainly because she loves to and maintains a blog for her own creative satisfaction. However, she appreciates positive and constructive criticism from her readers. “The only thing I don’t like is when I can’t figure out exactly how I want my blog to look,” she points out.

There are many fashion enthusiasts as well who like to blog actively.

Bhavishya Shetty, a fashion blogger, says that her blogging style is elaborate and she does not confine herself to any one particular style. She has met several interesting people in the fashion industry who have done commendable work and have immense knowledge to share and that she says is always a pleasant learning experience.

“I take blogging very seriously,” says Bhavishya. She has a few tips for this scorching summer heat.

Art lovers too have taken to blogging as a platform to express themselves. Trishal Reddy owns a blog named ‘Design Freak’. In the 9th standard, she made a sketch of one of her friends and this persuaded her to take this up seriously. Over the past 3 years, she has been working on and improving her style. When asked about what her designs are based on, she says, “They are inspired by anything and everything — nature, day dreaming or any random thought.” The artist claims that her proudest achievement is winning the ‘classmate cover hunt’ and coming first nationwide.

“I feel that this world is so negative and bringing some art in it is like brightening it up. My designs reflect a certain sense of positivity and can bring a smile to people’s faces,” says Trishal adding, “I do intend to take it up as a profession by incorporating it into graphic design.”
