Why I started ‘The Best CAR Blog Ever!’

What’s this? Why am I not writing about CARS and starting a post on why I started writing a blog?? Relax! I know this is ‘The Best CAR Blog Ever!!‘. I haven’t forgotten, its all about cars, more cars…just cars! Let me tell you about when I started blogging.

For those who know me and have followed this blog since the beginning,they know I started out in October 2012. But that will not tell you about the reasons or the situation at that time.

I was pursuing my Diploma in Journalism, had reached half-way through it & it wasn’t that easy. I put in efforts & equally learned from my mistakes. For the first time, I had pursued writing at lengths. From the admission interview to all the classes that I attended, I had only one answer about my interest in journalism – “I am interested in getting into Automobile Journalism.” I was exceptional in terms of my choice then; there were many brilliant students (most) with mainstream journalism interests.

I felt a bit disconnected, because I would be speaking Latin & Greek for others, if I spoke about automobiles. And neither could I really speak well on other fields. I tried to write in other streams, I wouldn’t be able to even beat my previous assignments.

So, some how I needed to write about what I really wanted to do. A professor suggested me to take up blogging as a practice for topics of my interest (and still improve on my writing on the rest of the topics of the class).

That’s where my blogging journey started; my journey of excellence. I had a different take when I started out, I focused on covering news, but I would be left behind (I was new to writing and slow!). Then I understood, even if I don’t cover each & every news, somebody else would. I had to only focus on my writing, my topics. If I want to do better, I need to strive for excellence. And here is what I wrote about excellence in my previous post:

“It is about giving your best, exceeding expectations & setting standards for others. It is the constant achievement through hard work, dedication and discipline… ” –

I did the same what Mercedes-Benz did; we strove for excellence. They achieved their goals, they set a benchmark at making the best luxury cars & were awarded for it. I had the goal of making this ‘The Best CAR Blog…Ever!’, I have written posts that I have been appreciated for, I got rewarded with a chance to be part of interesting car events, meet various people from the industry and interact with them, all at the completion of just a year in blogging.

Here is one thing that Mercedes-Benz and I would agree on & follow too:

Make it your habit too, in whatever you do, not just blogging! Its your life; so take excellence very personally!
