Interview with Indian Mommy Blogger – Priyanka Malik from _vodka_to_nappies

Mom Blogger Interview Feature- Priyanka Malik

Parenting can feel like a desolate adventure here and there, not withstanding when you know such a large number of others have been in similar shoes previously. Beyond your own loved ones, there are different assets that can enable mothers to feel less alone on the route. These genuine mothers are sharing their very own child rearing voyages freely—from the troublesome difficulties to the blissful minutes that make up current motherhood.

One among them is Priyanka Malik. Priyanka Malik is a mom blogger with the ability to turn a phrase. Everything she writes takes on a tint of magnificence, warmth and love. She is a gifted writer who takes up writing opportunities on the subject of parenting.

Let’s take a sneak peek into the life of this wonderful mom and get to know her better.

When did you Start your Blog?

I started writing for a fashion website in 2013. When that company closed down in 2014, I started my own blog, fifatra.in to share everything about fashion, fitness and travel and food. Now I write about my experience of being a mother.

How are you able to manage family, blog, work and friends?

I am extremely lucky to have my family around to help with the child. It’s difficult and exhausting but at the end of the day, it is so worth it. I get to go out and work, go to the gym and come back home to unlimited hugs! It’s beautiful.

What did you do before Blogging? What inspired you to start blogging?

I never knew that I could write well. I had written an article for the Times of India and a few local magazines and that is when I started taking writing seriously. A bad experience at a restaurant made me start writing about food and the rest, as they say, is history! I have been writing for the last seven years now!

The day we become parents, we are entrusted with looking after a life, A LIFE! It’s daunting, exhausting, exhilarating and overwhelming, at the same time. Giving birth is a superpower and with this great power comes great responsibilities! We start questioning each decision we make and keep re-thinking about what would be best for the baby. I think the first few years are going to be all about what we choose to do feed our baby and what products we use on him. As long as I breastfeed my child, I am at least sure of the nutrition he is getting from my body but what about what I apply to his skin, directly. Recently, I attended the meet hosted by @johnsonsbabyindia team and I was impressed, not because of the flawless arrangement and the grandeur of the event but for the transparency and ‘No-holds-barred’ #AskJohnsons session. From questions on how they plan to recycle their products to queries about every single ingredient and the infamous court cases, they answered them all. I learnt the basic lesson that everything that claims to be natural, need not be good for my child. I learnt that whatever I pick up for my child, has to be turned over to see what’s gone into it. I learnt that when it comes to brands, trust is important and it’s the company’s responsibility to clarify and help it’s customers restore the faith they have, in their product. Johnson and Johnson is unanimously the biggest brand for baby products and now they are paraben, sulfate and phthalates free! Thank you johnsons for breaking down each process and each ingredient for us. Thank you for making my son a Johnson’s baby, like his Mom. ❤️ . . . . . #indianmombloggers #indianmommyblogger #hyderabadphotographers #jnj #johnsonsindia #johnsonandjohnson #baby #momlife #momtribe #mombloggerindia #jaipurmomblogger #hyderabad #hyderabadmom

What would you consider being your biggest achievement in your journey so far as a Blogger?

I was recently invited by Johnson’s India for an event as a blogger. I have been in talks with Babycenter to write as a guest writer for them. I can just say, Life is good.

As a blogger, what are the challenges you face? How you overcome it?

As a blogger and a writer, we do face mental blocks when words just stop coming to us. As content creators, it’s difficult to keep thinking about the next content, all the time. I take a short break and then get back with a fresh mind. Also, reading helps. When I read, I get a lot of ideas as to what I can share with my followers and then I get right back to what I do best, writing!
