Chill Chat With Cool Blogger Ms. Menaka Bharathi
Hello, Menaka! Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Menaka: I am an Agricultural Microbiologist and a Mindfulness Coach. An Entrepreneur who grows Indian Superfoods and markets them under the brand SIM Organics. I have always lived life at the moment and believe that every moment in your life is to be cherished and lived with utmost satisfaction. I know there is lot more material success can be attained by sacrificing certain joys in life but I have always maintained that life is more precious than success.
Q1.An ever since moment in your blogger life or your turning point in blogging.
Menaka: I would say the thought of writing about what I know most and start a product line namely SIM Organics was a turning point in my blogging.
Q2. Your definition of blog success.
Menaka: To me success is defined by how happy a person is. I believe in feeling content in whatever we have and where we are. Ambition comes by the day, working towards that makes the day interesting and when goals are attained it makes you more satisfied – than successful.
Q3. Your top 2 regular practices that have helped you in blogging.
Menaka: Writing Unique Content – I have never ever tried to be like another blogger and that has given me a wonderful space in the blogosphere.
Practicing Mindfulness – I have this habit of living in the moment and planning the whole day in ahead – this has helped me a lot when it comes to blogging.

Menaka: My family.
Q5. One relationship who contributed in making your blog.
Menaka: My Husband – his continuous support is what has made me write from the beginning.
Q6. One factor, out of your comfort zone in blogging.
Menaka: The scratch my back I will scratch your back type of relationships happening in the blogosphere, I have never been comfortable with it because at times I had to let my schedule affected.
Q7. A book / movie / person / blog that transformed you.
Menaka: The Secret– That was one book that changed the perspective of how I see the world around me.
Q8. Your strength and weakness as a blogger.
Menaka: My strength is my passion towards giving quality content.
My weakness is the same – sometimes in te pursuit of giving quality content I take too much time into research.
Q9. One principle you are proud of.
Menaka: Don’t post till you are not satisfied with what is written. I have around 30 posts pending in my folder which are complete in themselves but I am not satisfied, I sometimes would happily go without posting a week just because I could not find that ring in the article I have written.
Q10. Blogging tips to share with your readers.
- Find that one point you are really passionate about and don’t need assistance to write about.
