I started blogging in college to claim a little piece of the internet. You know, to have something of my own where I could freely share my thoughts. I didn’t really have a focus when I first started to blog so I wrote about whatever piqued my interest. Slowly but surely, I saw a trend: I began sharing healthy recipes, interviewing inspiring people, and writing posts related to running/ working out. The more time I invested in blogging, the more I realized I focus on the particular niche of health & fitness.
Which is why I’m starting my new blog: Citrus & Gold.
I want to inspire people to be bolder, healthier, and happier. I’ve learned a lot about who I am as a person by focusing my energy towards my health. When I started paying more attention to my well-being, I realized that a lot of the “new habits” I was picking up were actually things my mom tried to teach me at a young age.
For example, she tried to convince me about benefits of yoga & breathing exercises; she also made me drink turmeric milk when I was sick; and she would often suggest using natural products for skincare. All of the tips & tricks she tried to teach me were rooted in South Asian culture. Though all of these may be trendy now, I want to share a perspective that brings it all close to home.
I’m excited start a new phase of my blogging “career” & I’m eagerly awaiting the launch. If you want to know when it goes live, subscribe to the newsletter here! Also in the meantime, you can follow me on instagram: citrusandgold.
I haven’t decided what I want to do with this blog yet, but I’m thinking of at least keeping it around without posting much. Thoughts?
