    4. Nominate 5-10 recently followed bloggers and share your post with them so they see it. Leave a comment on their blog about their nomination.

Below is a list of questions  TiaSpeaks and Techshe asked me to answer, so here goes nothing!

  1. What inspires you as a writer?

My Mom is my inspiration for my writing. I feel like the roles have changed over the years and now I have turned into a Dance Mom, where I want her to be the best and get the recognition she deserves. She was an incredibly brilliant and accomplished person before she became schizophrenic, so I wanted to see if I could do something she was never able to accomplish herself.

  1. What is the most fascinating thing about being a blog writer?

The Internet is a ruthless place and at first, I was fearful of what I was getting myself into.  I never knew the blogging community was a thoughtful, kind, and inspirational place on the Internet. Everyone has a story to tell, people are friendly, and wise. I love learning new techniques, seeing other’s writing styles, and making new Internet friends.

  1. What’s the one thing that transformed your life?

I would say becoming a blogger has changed my life in ways I could never imagine. I have always been passionate about writing. I feel like I have more control over my life now more than ever before. I am more self-aware too. Although, legal writing is much different than this creative writing assignment, this is good practice for me before law school.

  1. What makes a good content? How do you know if a piece of writing is doing well?

Good content is something that resonates with many people regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, or religion. I would rather read something authentic/real rather than some fantasy story about how the world is full of rainbows, leprechauns, and unicorns. That’s my own personal taste though. A piece of writing is doing well when it is thought-provoking and leaves your audience wanting more.

  1. Tell me some 5 random facts about yourself

My dream job is to become a reputable lawyer

I am a firm believer you can do anything you want in life

I am the happiest when I am surrounded by the people I love.

I love people who can make me laugh. Honestly, it’s probably one of my favorite characteristics in a person.

My philosophy is there are three things you should keep private. Your love life, income, and your next move.

  1. What genre of books do you like and why? (Techshe’s #5 question)

I love historical fiction, self- improvement, or satire books. I am more of a realist than a dreamer, so I like books that reveal the truth.

  1. What do you usually write about on your blog?

I probably have one of the more interesting lives as a 25-year-old Pakistani Muslim American girl. I worked for the federal government particularly the Department of Justice. I have an incredibly clean reputation, so I wrote my own autobiography. I kind of wanted to sully my reputation a little bit too. I know it’s corny and cliché, but I’ve always wanted to do something to change the world for the better. The fact that my writing resonates with others is the most rewarding feeling. I am sure that is how most writers feel.

  1. What should be the ideal length of the content?

To create good content, you should never limit someone to a specific word count or page length. When you write from your heart the story unfolds without any force.

  1. What is the one trait that makes you different from everyone?

I am Sarish  🙂

  1. What are some of the things that makes you confident?

I can look in the mirror and respect the person staring back at me now. I love getting dressed up for myself and just feeling pretty. Confidence is when you no longer worry about whether others like you. It’s that moment in your life where you realize you will be fine if people don’t. It’s an amazing feeling.

  1. What your posts are based on? Are they based on your emotions or they are trying to give a social message to a reader? Also share your favorite blog posts.

My posts are mainly a critique of the society we live in today. I feel like a modern-day Anne Frank and I am sharing my digital diary with the world/ anyone who cares to take the time to read it.

  1. What do you think of me?

TiaSpeaks, from your writing you seem like a beautiful, kind, and curious soul. I enjoy reading your writing. I love virtually meeting people from similar cultural backgrounds, so we can easily vent about the things we like/dislike about brown culture. Thank you so much for nominating me for this award. It’s such an incredibly kind thing to do.

Also, a big thank you to Techshe, I love your writing as well! It’s nice to see brownies supporting brownies.
