How Darren filled my Blogging life with Optimism and Hope


Today I want to continue with my ongoing blogging success stories. For all of you who are new to blogging, especially in Fashion Blogging today topic is about the optimism. Way back in 2010 I met a person called Darren Rowse, who is a world famous blogger. Back then I was a newbie and learning blogging skills from various successful bloggers and SEO specialists. Darren is one of them. I attended one of his seminars about blogging for newbies where he explains various methods to become a successful blogger. The day has changed my life and blogging career forever.

As I told you all on my previous story how I become a successful Fashion Blogger from a newbie, Darren’s speech on that day not only motivates me for blogging, but also filled my inner-self with Optimism. There are tons of Indian bloggers who are trying to make their mark on the bloggoshere but failed due to lack of motivation or right skills. The day Darren teaches about small steps such as creating a blog post, share it with friends and family, ask them to share, make it available for social media sites and so on. In short those are the off-page promotion and SEO. On our blog we have to do some on-Page SEO as well to let search engines such as Google, Bing to know about us.

Last week one of my readers asked me about my motivation behind my blogging, today’s post is all about answering that. Darren’s seminar not only inspires me but also it gives me hope and optimism that even though I have very limited resource I can be a successful blogger one day.

After all these years I have become a complete tech savvy and running three of my blogs – two of them are fashion related and one is  pure mobile technology. Last January when one of my cousins was moving to Bangalore, her parents were too much worried. I called them to my home, invited them to sat in-front of my laptop and opened – a complete solution for her living in the alien city. Through’s optimal image browsing options, quickly they shortlisted three flats for her. After selecting they called the flat owner to finalize the best one for her. The best part, even though they were sitting at my room, they virtually visited the houses via their on site Maps.

After finalized the flat for their daughter, they thanks for the help, But I was really wanted to thank Darren and the technology itself. Years back all these people were against my blogging and now they all thanked me – this transformation filled my inner self with optimism and joy to even more good things with my blogging.

If you have any story of yourself where you feel you have made a change in someone’s life do let us know.

On my ongoing series of various types of BD Scotches – first up I have discussed about the the youngest of them all the 8Y.O. aka BD Centenary, on the following day I covered the BD 18yrs aka BD Reserve; on today’s post I’m going to discuss about BD 12yrs aka BD Deluxe. In this busy world; sometime you must savor something sublime that allows you to escape from this rushed world. For many Black Dog 12 Y.O. is just that something. It remains uninterrupted in sherry oak casks for 12 long edgy years before it is unconstrained. Preferably, each sip of the Black Dog 12 Y.O. Scotch should be savored for a minimum of 12 seconds to truly appreciate its charisma. Every element has been handpicked after years of research to arouse the connoisseurs. For Black Dog 12 year old deluxe scotch-whisky, the master blender promise a lavish finishing with a touch of cream. It’s imperative that you must enjoy Black Dog Deluxe Scotch leisurely & let the world wait rather than rushing it up.

The Highland Malts provide Black Dog 12 Y.O. Scotch their dry character. The Speyside malts add their complexity and classy smoothness. While the Islay whiskies put in their typical boggy quality and the Lowland malts bring in their full bodied, syrupy character. These are carefully mixed to make BD 12 Y.O. a true champ & prepared it to dominate other whiskies.

Black Dog makes it happen


We talked about an hour or so, I asked her, had your dinner? She replied yup @7pm only. I continued, so what’s your plan now? Hitting the bed? Or…she said; let’s walk… so I trip to the beach again, but not only with my dream girl, with a joyful heart also. We walked on the beach holding hands together. After a brief walk we sat together to enjoy the moon, cold breeze & sea wave sounds.

I asked her don’t you think we need something to drink? She said, “well that would be nice, don’t you think, a bottle of Black Dog would be perfect?” I replied with a serious face; ok let’s see how I can manage it. She started laughing by saying relax I was kidding. There is no way to get the bottle of the most luxurious scotch brand of India at the middle of the night here on a Cape Town beach, sit down & relax. I argued & said, you want Black Dog now, fine, let’s have it. Then I opened my back & took out couple of glasses & a bottle of the most premium whiskies’ of our era – Black Dog. She screamed with joy & hugged me.

We enjoyed the finest Scotch for the next hour or so… under the moon & in-front of the sea. This trip makes many changes to my life as finally I have started dating Nisha. Enjoying each others company in weekends. Having fine dinner together in our most favorite places & yeah! Let’s not forget the contribution of the Black Dog – the finest scotch available in India, which makes Nisha & Me together. Even now whenever we meet, we giggle, fight or snivel over a glass of scotch fore sure to keep it even more special.

A New Beginning with Back Dog


At first she refused to take the glass, but after the bar tender pointed his finger towards me, she reluctantly accepted that. As soon as she was rapt by the awesome taste of Black Dog Scotch; I shifted right next to her & introduced myself. She introduced herself as Nisha.

dinnerI asked her why such beautiful lady sitting in such an exotic ambiance of the bar of that 5 Star lavish hotel along & depressed. She changes the entire topic wisely & asked me about why I offered her Black Dog? I don’t belong to any cerebral league as far as Scotches are concerned. I mumbled & looked towards my friend Akash, as her was the introducer of the brand just an hour ago. But in-front of a lady I couldn’t show my weakness, so I started saying what I felt when I first tried it. I said, I offered you this awesome scotch just because I believe it represent you:  Bold and sumptuous. For twenty one year’s these aged single malts and grain whiskies have remained dormant in our cold dark warehouses before they were finally mixed along by our master liquidizer. Thus the spirit should be control long on the roof of the mouth for a minimum of twenty one seconds to awaken its several hidden attributes. Sort of a rare masterpiece it’ll reveal its inner beauty. It’s inner world. Intense flavors of Seville oranges, ripe sweet mangoes and ginger spice reward the roof of the mouth, and then whispers of cooking chocolate, liquorices and crushed almonds drift fondly on.

She stopped me in middle & asked “Are You the brand ambassador of this brand? (With a wacky smile). I said, to be very honest with you, I just tried this excellent scotch just few minutes back as one of my friends suggested me for this. I’m not very much into it. Then she bashfully smiled & said “very smart huh!”

As soon as she stopped smiling, I saw Akshay was approaching towards me…

The date was 10th January 2012. After a year & half long hard word at the office, finally my boss apprises me & finally I got my much deserving promotion. That was a day I will remember for the rest of my life.

Four of my close colleagues Akash, pradip, akshay & pramod insisted for a party, so after the day’s exertion at the office, we hit the best restaurant of the city. That was the second stopover of mine to that heavenly place. It was a 5star restaurant & the atmosphere as well as the ambience is just mind blowing, one of my friends Akash asked me what I would like to have as drink. Usually I am a non-drinker, thus I suggested him bring out the best from the bar. It was the most sophisticated and a truly exotic place of the hotel, we friends were sitting & chatting about the promotion.

dinner-iftMinutes later Akash arrived with four glasses & a bottle of – scotch called Black Dog. As a non-drinker I asked him about the brand Black Dog. He replied that this scotch is one of the most oldest & popular brands in the industry, trusted by thousands if not millions.

I trusted him as he is the most knowledgeable person on the table about any kind of luxurious things & tried the finest scotch of my life till date. Its soothing quality had the flexibility to refresh ourselves on any occasion. After almost half an hour of chatting & enjoying the world’s finest scotch, I made a move toward the bar for the payment, all of a sudden I noticed the most gorgeous women of the bar sitting alone, quite & looked depressed. I slowly made a move towards her a sat beside her; she was busy checking her cell phone for any incoming text messages. I quietly asked her “you look depressed, what happened?”

Black Dog

She looked at me & gave a look that I will never forget in my life. She then again took a sip on her drink & gazing her cell phone for some messages. Time was flying but this beauty was killing me from inside, she was so beautiful, but so depressed… I wanted to know the reason. You can say at that time, I was on a mission, a mission to bring back smile on her face.

So I made my second move for the night & ordered her a peg of Black Dog Scotch…
