This is a guest post I wrote for , nepalichori, amazing blog I have been following for a while. Thank you so much for the opportunity and sharing the post here.
First of all thank you Nepali Chori for giving me the opportunity to share my thoughts and ideas on your blog. I believe that it is a great initiative and a brilliant idea.
Today I am going to share my ideas on why I blog and why Nepaliaustralian?
I think most of the people who know me via my blog know that I am an IT professional which means the computer is my livelihood. So when I spend so much time in front of the computer it is natural that I do lots of research and on one of these researches I found a few really nice blogs that I loved to read. The bloggers wrote about their lives, their likes and their thoughts.
I started reading these blogs regularly and there were times I wanted to leave a comment, which forced me to make an account with WordPress so I could comment easily rather than answering the same questions many times. One time when I was writing a comment I realised that I had typed more than a page and I was a bit ashamed to post it as a comment. It’s like I was hijacking the original post.
That moment I realised that I had so many ideas and thoughts that blogging might me a good place to share and that is how Nepaliaustralian.com was born. Initially I was not sure what I was going to share in my blog but as time went by I knew I wanted to blog about my life and my love for Nepali culture and traditions. I am also glad that people started reading my posts, commenting, and liking it which encouraged me to continue.
As you know the theme of my blog is “Living in west with values of east” and I stand by it every day. If you read my blog, you will find posts and information about different places of Nepal, Nepali festivals, Nepali food, how I brought Nepali traditions to my home here in Sydney and much, much more.
I wanted to have a blog where words are not pre-planned, and thoughts are not edited. I have a passion for sharing whatever I know about Nepal, its cultures, traditions and to become a part of the community. There are so many great people sharing their experience on the blogosphere that I am glad to share my ideas in the same platform.
I am overwhelmed when I receive an email or a comment thanking me for helping in someone’s life, how they read my blog regularly and how I inspire them. I could have never thought in my wildest dream that my writing could help someone I have never met in some corner of the world. It led me down a new road of adventure, learning so much about just everything along the way.
Through my blog, I have made some good friends who are a part of my life now. There are also many more I would love to meet one day as they are such beautiful human beings and it will be my pleasure to get to know them better.
So this blog has not only let me share my ideas and thoughts but also helped me get many excellent ideas from people as well as learn a lot from their experience.
I hope to continue writing for a long time.
What are your favorite blogs? What do you like to read? Do you have a blog yourself? Do you write your thoughts and ideas?
Take care ,

i have no words actually to appreciate your blog and posts. its truly one of a kind and inspires even a person living in Nepal like us to retain Nepali traditions alive and pass onto coming generations. I am proud I’ve followed your blog as it keeps me motivated and inspires. Thankx a lot. 🙂
Thank you Shilu. You have always encourages me with you nice comments to keep blogging.
I am so proud of our culture and tradition and I will want to make sure my kids know about it one day even they will grow up in Australia. I can’t do that unless I practice myself so hence doing everything I could to learn and follow the traditions and cultures. Hope one day my kids will have the same feeling towards our culture and learn more about Nepal.
Back home, I absolutely loved nepalikt and guffadi’s blogs and since I started my own here, the first thing I googled was ‘Nepali blogs’ and I found you. I read the whole thing and explored pictures and I always look forward to what you have to share. I love reading the conversation in between AS and you in particular because they are soo cute :3
Ani, people like you inspire me, the things you did to be where you are today.
Good luck and keep writing because people like me look forward to it 😀
Thank you for reading and following my blogs. The comment like this make it worth my effort to continue writing. Thank you for making me simile 🙂 🙂 🙂
simply because were human and we love sharing things….
So true 🙂
My favourite blog is your blog. I love to read about your life experiences, travelling adventures. I love the positivity that you share through your blog..reminds me every time to count my blessings. To be honest, I started my blog after following your blog for quite sometime. Whenever I google something (mostly nepali culture as my hubby is very inquisitive about my newari heritage), your post would be there and I found it very interesting myself as I didn’t know the history or reasons of things we do in our culture. That’s how I got hooked on your blog. I was going through a tough time and your blog was an escape for me. It was also motivation to be positive and happy.
I always wanted to share my passion about cooking and nepali cuisine. My dream was to write cookbook. So this is my platform and I love blogging. It’s my escape.
Sorry for long comment but just want to thank you for your blog.
Thank you so much Mrsgrg, you made my day. I have a big grin on my face as I type this reply.I am so glad to know that my writing has been able to help you even in a small way. I love your blog and have tried few of your recipes :). Keep your dream alive about the cookbook and I am sure it will come true one day. Be positive and things will happen in life. Take care.
