Interview With Aashima and Vernika From Besties Notepad

Hello, friends, in our Blogger’s Interview Series today we have Aashima and Vernika From Besties Notepad. These two besties get together and create their much loved online journal through besties notepad Blog.

We are very much thankful to Aashima and Vernika for taking time to answer the questions. So without much wait, let’s jump into the discussion now.

Interview With Aashima and Vernika From Besties Notepad

  • Hi, Welcome to Etechexplorer. Could you Please share a bit about yourself?
Aashima and Vernika, we are two childhood friends who share similar interests, gossips, tips..almost everything in our endless telephonic conversations — as we now live continents apart. As of now, we both are stay-at-home Moms who like to write, read, watch TV shows/movies, cook etc while enjoying the lovely phase of motherhood.
  • When and how did you get introduced to Blogging?
Well, Aashima and Vernika at some point (while in college, around 11years back) started their individual blogs which eventually faded away with lives getting busy day by day. Blogging is like a journal for us, a reflection of ourselves and everything that help shape it. Even though our individual blogs did not last long, we thoroughly enjoyed the idea. So this time we decided to start a blog together with double the commitment.
  • What your blog Besties Notepad is all about? How did you think to name it?
The worst part about being oceans apart turned out to be the best part of the blogging idea. So, it started one day at one of our normal telephonic calls that we started sharing some random tips with each other which took various turns into parenting, face masks, TV shows etc. This is a part of our usual conversation and then all of a sudden, Aashima blurted out, “Let’s start a blog together!” and that was it..we zealously started a blog which pretty much discusses everything around fashion, beauty, recipes, parenting, DIYs etc.
Although, deciding the name took the longest time for us, more time than coming up with the idea of the blog or writing a post on it. It’s simply because we wanted it to be ‘besties’ as we wanted our bond to be reflected in the name itself. 🙂
  • Being a House wife, how do you manage your Daily Blogging Routine? and how do you stay productive? How Many Hours a week do you spend on your Blog?
Frankly, we have no such fixed routine. We both believe in blogging only when it interests us, we want to be qualitative, not quantitative; though it interests us so much that we are producing 2 posts a week and are active on our Instagram account almost daily.
We focus on making the Post simple and interesting, something which our readers will enjoy but then again, interest is a very relative term. Something which is interesting for us, might not be for you and vice versa. That is why we believe in making a platform with diverse topics so that more and more people can enjoy our content. The content is divided into different categories as beauty, fashion, recipes, DIYs, parenting, life etc.



  • What are the strengths you think have helped you to become a better Blogger? Do you wish to learn any new skill that you think will help you further? 
The flexibility and openness to explore new ideas have helped a lot and that’s the reason why our blog is not confined to any particular genre. Each of us comes with a new idea every now and then and for all these random ideas, it’s always a go! We love the diversity of our blog.
This is just the beginning for us and there is still a lot to learn. We would like to learn more about photography, technical blogging terms like SEO and the list goes on…so we aim to just keep on learning!
  • What’s the one thing you’ve done that has Increased your Traffic the most? 

 Bloggers’ group on social networking sites — especially Facebook — have been of immense help with the traffic thus far. These are just fantastic vehicles to promote the blog and connect the blogging community to the reader base.

  • Many people start their blog and discontinue after some time. What do you think is the most frustrating aspect of Blogging?
It becomes more of a task when you run out of ideas and at the same time you are not able to get enough traffic to motivate you. So, it has to be a mixture of good content and right promotional strategies to keep you going. One of the most import things would be not to try too hard. Blogging should be fun, that’s the only mantra to keep it interesting and going.
One remedy to that would be, keep exploring..learn something new, explore some new places, try a new cuisine. Basically, don’t get bored and keep the energy going.
  • Did you face any obstacle? Please share about your early Blogging mistakes if any

We think that we are still learning in terms of writing, clicking pictures, being creative about new topics etc. There is something new to learn every day and there are so many good blogs around that you always want to do better. We think we are improving our photography skills every day and are making our content more readable, useful and interesting for our subscribers.

We use some of the apps to design our graphics. PicsArt and Snapseed are our absolute favorites. Other than that, we also use VSCO, Jusgrammm to name a few. One picture is usually a combined editing done from different apps.
  • So far, which is the most Awesome moment in your Blogging Journey?

That would be when we started getting comments on our Besties Notepad posts without actually ‘promoting’ the blog. That is when we knew, we are doing good 🙂

  • What are your next Blogging Plans?

There’s always one simple plan, an upcoming post 🙂
