Hey there!

I am Chicky Kadambari, a member of the A.F.A.E.A. (Alien Federation Aiding Earth's Ascension).

The WHAT ???

LOL! Relax! I'm kidding! There is no such organization. I'm just a lifestyle blogger from India.

My school friends felt "Kadambari" was too long a name. So they shrunk it to "Kaddu". When I started blogging in 2006, I decided I might as well make it my blogging identity. It is the Hindi word for pumpkin. Hence, all the pumpkins in my blog design.

Why "alien"? Because that's how I feel. A misfit. A rebel.

Why "miss_teerious"? Because I've always been in love with that old song of Peter Andre - "mysterious girl"! [grins]

Actually, that's only part of the reason. Here's the full story behind the name of my blog - "30 Days of Me: The Blog Name...".

This is the very first blog I started. I write on a wide range of topics here, as you can probably make out from the Menu Bar above. I also run dedicated niche blogs at KraftyFingers and ReikiHealersLounge.

A few years ago, I started a variety-feature online magazine. It was called Kadzilla's Lounge. I was its Founder/Editor, responsible for content procurement and community management. I had to discontinue it though, because of lack of time, but it was a fantastic learning experience.

I've been working as a freelance writer/editor/web-designer for over 9 years now. I have experience in:

1. writing SEO based content, tutorials/manuals, emailers.
2. content planning, proof-reading and editing.
3. digital design, blog services, website design.

I'm also a self-published author of the book A to Z of Blogging.

Outside the blogosphere, I currently own a stationery & gifts store, called "Kopy 'n' Kitab". Three years of running my own business has taught me more about every aspect of business management than any job or degree ever could. (I do have a PG Diploma in Business Administration though.)

I love books, music, sunsets, flowers, perfumes & tea.

I love creating things, be it in words (writing), or in Photoshop (digital designing), or through painting/embroidery/DIY art-n-craft projects.

I like watching English movies (preferably action).

Occasionally, I also like to cook.

Once upon a time, I was a Farmville champion. (So much so, that I actually have a tag for it on this blog!)

By the way, I still enjoy playing online games. I've even got some of them embedded right here on my blog. You can check them out under games in the Menu Bar above.

I am surprised I did not bump into this blog in my one year as a blog "owner", which is a lifetime in the world of social media and connecting through it. Good to have found this. I stay somewhere 'Between Write and Wrong'. Will not drop a link, though have managed to shamelessly drop a hint. :)
Lovely space. Looking to follow some quality writing. It's a desert out there!

Hi Sakshi! As they say, 'better late than never', right? :D
I know you from my twitter timeline though... am one of the 'silent lurkers' on most people's blogs these days! :P
Glad you finally found my blog! Hope you find something of interest in my 8+ years of archives here!
See ya!
