Okay, so finally I have a name- Tamanna Kanwar. No my parents were not cruel enough to leave me nameless and gave me a rather nice name, but for some reason, I didn’t put it anywhere on my blog ( madwomanintheatticblog.wordpress.com) when I started it about 8 months ago. For one thing, I really didn’t think that it mattered. But I had quite a few people asking me my name and not only did I feel silly telling them but I also realised that putting a name to a face, or a blog in this case, is important. What the name was, is irrelevant, but a name should be there unless someone was to assume that “Mad Woman” is in fact my name!
Well the new domain name does make this much clear at least that my name is Tamanna Kanwar. Yeah I’m the author, owner etc etc of this blog helped, at gun point if I may say so, by my hubby, with the technical stuff; by my 8 year old son with the crazy inputs and my two nutty dogs with…well..just their barking! I am an absconding, pseudo Indian Revenue Service officer, a pseudo yogi and as pseudo a feminist! What however is real is all of the above and my love for the written word- mine or someone else’s.
While some may call me a beauty blogger, specially since Hindustan Times featured me as such in their Ludhiana edition of Brunch, I’m afraid I’m nowhere near the talented ladies who are the beauty bloggers. Yes I do talk about products that I have used but more so to share my personal experience than a “review” per se. Strangely, the maximum hits I get are for my beauty related posts! Vanitas vanitatum!! I write about almost anything and everything that catches my fancy- from Grey’s Anatomy to Barun Sobti; from my dogs to books worth reading; from god to Chetan Bhagat and a piece I did for Femina’s “Made By You” issue!!
This should be enough by way of introduction. Welcome to my world- read on to find more about the world within the attic and without!
