It was unplanned!

I have been missing in action in the wide world of blogging (one post each in 2016 and 2017... ouch!). A new little chapter began in my life in August 2016. I was totally new to the experience and taking one day at a time. I had anticipated an increased amount of work, but I had no idea about the quantum of efforts required.

With great responsibility comes great deal of work! (Spider-Man's Uncle Ben never mentioned that, right?)

So, well, I started Hopasholic (our gift shop in Panvel that has everything from party supplies to toys and accessories) in August 2016 and it has kept me busy all this while. Sourcing, pricing, selling, promotions and what not! Add to it some freelance writing assignments. And then I discovered the power of Instagram when my youngest customers said, "Facebook is old, we all are on Instagram, you should be there!"

What can I say, blogging took a backseat and it was totally unplanned. So, I am back to blogging either here or on my other blog Fibromyalgia Awareness and will try to write regularly, if not daily. That's the plan!

BTW A-Z challenge is coming up, right? Are you participating?
