  1. I totally understand what you mean :/ , I have been going through something similar….. I too have sooo many list of topics that I want to write down but just not been able to find that motivation, its there on some days and then just gone.

    I tried fixing a schedule but it doesn’t work that way.


  2. My THE MOST FAVOURITE post by you till date!! These are the things that make you my favourite, you are not perfect and you don’t pretend to be either. You are human, you are just another girl, you are relatable and so are all things that you just talked about. I feel you bro 😎


  3. That was like the words were flowing out of your mind and into this screen. Isn’t this what a blog is supposed to be? 🙂
    So what if it wasn’t about a wedding, if their isn’t you, and your writing process, what would this blog be?
    Relax, this is your cheat post, you’ll be right on track.
    There are loads of us, who’ll keep coming back here, to read more.
    I think this was my favourite post too. And, yeah, mint green is gonna last a lifetime. Good luck 🙂


  4. I have been an avid reader of your blog since probably a year. Initially, I started following it for my cousin’s wedding. The wedding came and went but I continued reading. Not cause eventually I will plan my own wedding (styles/colors come and go, no point researching ahead of time :-p) but because I love your style of writing. It feels like I am sitting in a bright cafe with coffee and a big fat cake having a conversation with my best friend. That’s the sort of comfort your writing brings.

    Having said that..there is something in the poem you posted that really stuck out to me from your posts on this topic..

    ‘if it never does roar out of you,

    do something else.’

    It’s ok if you do not want to write about weddings anymore. Its ok if you’ve had enough of colours, cuts, styles, jewellery, etc etc. It’s ok to write about something else because readers like me read your blog cause your writing is fun and chatty and comforting.

    Everybody has different phases in life. Maybe this was your passion before..maybe not anymore…and THAT’s OK!

    A loyal reader

    1. Hey M! Its not that i dont love weddings anymore. I’m still as passionate, but sometimes i want to talk about other things too. And i feel like I’ve stopped myself from writing about other things just because this is a wedding blog. I’ve been blocking my own flow it seems, and i dont want to do that anymore. I want to write what i feel like talking about. And i am so lucky to have readers like you 🙂 seems like I will still have company no matter where the journey takes me! Thank you for all your kind wishes 🙂


  5. Still in the first year of my marriage, managing a house and a consultants job with grocery lists and piles of documentation for work have stopped my flow like a frozen glacier. Pending tasks have increased so much that i am constantly asking myself to push the timelines that are attached to everyone for their own thoughts, which for me would be my penned down word docs or cellphone notes being still incomplete. This is liberating! Thanks Shinjini for letting that part within us which sacrifices ‘what we want to do’ for ‘what we have to do’! We are definitely glued to this delhi bride. 🙂


  6. That’s why we call it LIFE.. a crazy ride we should say.. sometimes we really need to be ourselves keeping all the things constant…just away from everything in relaxing mode..but still we mould ourselves according to the situations. .still we stand again for everyone…and that’s what motivate us..light us again and again..just be urself acceptance is good..n yes we all r same sharing same feelings n stories..!!
    love u TDB 😚😚


  7. Hi! I really enjoyed reading this post as I too felt this way and it was one of the reasons I took a break from my blog britishasianbride.com. We constantly evolve and change and that is a good thing. I’d rather something new then be forced to commit myself to the same task for the sake if consistency!

    Your readers (including me by the way) read your blog for you. You were a Delhi bride, you are now a Delhi wife amongst all the other roles you play. You have changed. So will your writing. I for one am looking forward to your new posts.

    Good luck.

  8. Always been an avid reader of your blog and will always do! I’ve been guilty of the same.. having left the blog for an entire 6 months and guess what it felt liberating and I didn’t feel a tiny bit guilty. Life happens,,and you’ve gotta live it. Atleast I made some good memories in that time.
    good luck Shinjini. I’m sure you feel a 1000 times better after this post. Your readers are sticking with you so just be YOU. Lots of love. Nishu


  9. Oh god how I love this post and the poem at the end. Of course you know even I am struggling with the rules of blogging, I guess we all get there at some point in our lives. But glad to see you accepting yourself. More power to you! And you really write well 🙂


  10. I love your blog and started checking daily for posts when I was planning my own wedding. It has been nearly a year now since I got married but I still check your blog. I would say that your blog and Mehaks (peachesandblush) kind of inspired me to start my own.

    Once I got married I noticed I was still obsessed with weddings..I had to make a conscious decision that my amazing big day is over and I should get on with my life now. Instead I focused my energy on getting our home set up..and having a bit of a unique tranquil theme for it.
    I blog now mostly about where we have been eating out or holidaying. It doesn’t appeal to everyone but I enjoy it.

    You write so well, the words just seem to flow for you and that is a rare talent.
    Wish you all the best and I loom forwatd to reading more of your posts 🙂


  11. This was a long post but I read it word by word..May be because it was coming directly from your heart. I have liked reading your blog while I was in the marriage phase and would still like to read from you. You have some good stuff here and you should continue that. This is your blog and feel free to write about whatever interests you. One thing I have learnt is life is that you cannot function like someone else, so stick to your positives and learn to utilize that.

    I hope to see many more posts from you 🙂

    Ps. I had read it days back and was going to comment from phone, somehow couldn’t. Came back today to comment 🙂


  12. Shinjini. You are a gem. You and mehak were my guide when my sister got married and also when i got married last november. More than the wedding updates i read your blog for your niche in writing and wondered if i can ever write or put my view forward ao well. I have recently started my blog and all i have heard till now is use hastags, insert images, make it interesting, traffic, followers, networking etc. I don’t deny to have succumbed to them. But I at times feel guilty of doing so. My loving husband then explains to me that this is so that people read ur thought and you help them. Which i have understood but this post of urs is so motivating and that poem. Later in this blogging world if i ever lose myself ur post wil guide me back to being me. Thanks a lot shinjini. You don’t know what has this post done to me..
    (Sorry for such a long post. Words really did flow out of me )


  13. I totally understand the “flow” part.. Sometimes even I have so many ideas and then this block comes up and it is super frustrating! Wishing you more peace with yourself. 🙂
