Hello and happy Thursday to you all! It’s that day again where I get to share another blog with you as part of my ongoing series and if you like reading this one is sure to be up your street. Today I’m interviewing Aishwariya from Ash Talks Books to find out all about the lady behind the screen. I hope you enjoy reading our chat and be sure to head over to check out her blog too.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your blog
I’m Aishwariya. I live in suburban Chennai. I have a blog called Ash Talks Books in which I write about books.
How long have you been blogging?
I’ve been blogging on and off since 2005, but I’ve written in different blogs on blogspot and wordpress about various topics. It was only in 2017 that I started blogging about books.
What or who inspired you to create your blog?
My friend Arati Thomas told me to start a book blog after seeing my posts about books on social media. That’s what inspired me to start one.
What’s your favourite thing about running your blog?
My favourite thing about running my blog is that it opens up so many avenues and connects me to the writing community. I’m a writer and editor and quite the introvert, so this online world opens up my horizons.

I owe it to the blogging community ( specially @blogchatter) and some wonderful writers I’ve met online to stay motivated.
What’s been the most challenging part of your blogging journey to date?
The most challenging part of my blogging journey has been staying consistent with my efforts.
