Hi, I’m Zainab. I’m a stay at home mom of a 4 year old who keeps me on my toes. I previously worked for around 10 years with a telecom company but decided to leave when my son was little as I couldn’t do justice to either of the two roles.
Last year I wrote, illustrated and published two children’s books. (Check them out here). I started this blog as a suggestion from my publisher. As in the case of my books, my son is my inspiration for my blog as well. I write about him, about my life as a mother and also about life in general. I like to write about relationships and you can see that in my short stories as well.
I’m also very fond of photography and take part in many photography events on WordPress. I take my inspirations from my travels around the world and I also like to capture with my camera my very expressive and active son.
Compared to keeping a journal, the great thing about blogging is that you can connect with so many people. I treasure your comments on my writing and I love discovering new blogs. I learn immensely from different styles of writing and expression that I come across in the blogging world.
I need a daily prompt to write,
A photo challenge to click my camera,
I think I just might,
Have to do something extra.
My very own prompt
To raise the bar,
I really doubt
I have to look very far.
My life as a mother,
My son is an inspiration,
So I should look no further,
And make my own creation.
I missed out on a couple of years of blogging but I’m back with a big update! Not only is my son Nadir almost 9, I also have a 2 yr old daughter Zoya. Life is so much more fun with a precious little girl. She absolutely adores her big brother and copies everything he does.
I’m still enjoying crafting and last year I started a small business of handmade jewelry which I make with the art of paper quilling. Check out my online store here.
I feel a bit rusty but I’m enjoying getting back to writing. I hope you can feel my passion in what I write!
