Hello there, today in our Bloggers Interview series, we are publishing an interview of Madhu Kumari, Travel-Lifestyle and Fashion Blogger at Levenstylo.
Hi Madhu, Can you tell our readers about yourself?
I am Madhu, an M.B.A postgraduate and a Marketing professional. My hobbies include Dancing, Travelling, Creative Writing, and Photography. After perusing my M.B.A I started my professional career in the Corporate Sector and I have a total experience of 5 years in Corporate Sector.
Apart from my professional Career I am a trained Kathak Dancer and love exploring more every day.
When and how the idea of ‘Levenstylo’ took place?
Well, in 2016, I took a break from my regular 9-6 job because of some family priorities. As I love writing, at that point of time as well, I use to write for myself. My husband (Neeraj) is an I.T professional and have been always telling me about Blogging business, as he knew that I love writing. I never gave a serious thought about this. Within that time, one of my friends was running her Fashion and Lifestyle Blog, and she too played a vital role in motivating me to start my own Blog. I choose Travel as my main forte and then Lifestyle and Fashion. I love traveling and photography. I feel traveling enhances an individual’s personality and make that person more independent. Leven means – Life, and I added Stylo at the end because I feel travel is one thing that adds maximum style to my life. And that’s how I began my Travel Blog – “ LevenStylo”
