We defiantly salute the shear talents of Indian Bloggers who constantly writing quality contents to help millions of readers each day.

Tell us about your blog?
Giasaysthat.com an Indian Fashion & Lifestyle blog . It encompasses personal style , DIYs & Video tutorials. Other than Fashion , Photography & Graphic designing has always intrigued me. This blog is a medium through which I portray my love for Fashion , photography & Art in general.
I had started off on youtube as a vlogger in 2010. I shifted to blogging as it was much easier to blog that to edit & post videos.
What made you chose blogging which you are doing now?
Blogging is a platform through which you can express your thoughts. As a Media student who was studying Journalism, I was quite annoyed with the fact that I was surrounded by non-fashion lovers. Being one of the few people who had a passion for it , I decided to express myself through this little blog.
Tell us about the best part of your work
You get to teach people & learn a lot from them! Bloggers are invited to various events as well. Through Blogging I have received various opportunities including writing for a newspaper as a Fashion columnist. Nowadays ,a lot people prefer blogs over Fashion magazines. The blogging community in India is slowly growing!
Honestly , you cannot predict the future! Once I graduated from college , I thought I would be a graphic designer then a stylist. It never ended up the way I planned it to be . Fashion business has always been something that I would want to pursue in the future. I prefer working on my own than working under someone as it gives room to creativity.
Who is your inspiration/role model? (blogging)
I never looked up to anyone(bloggers) before I started my blog. When I started off, there were just around 1-2 Fashion blogs from India. But the main reason why I started blogging was due to YOUTUBE Beauty videos.
