I am Chicky Kadambari, 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. Not just within my own family, but within the entire human population of the planet!
Why "miss_teerious"? Because I've always been in love with that old song of Peter Andre - "mysterious girl"! :D
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 see from the Menu Bar above. I also blog 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, as well as community management. I had to discontinue it though, because of lack of time.
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 and, sometimes, I also like cooking.
