Welcome to my blog!
I am Lancy Cv, a 21 year old full-time blogger cum entrepreneur (small!) from Chennai, India.
I found MABH when I was still doing my high school studies back in 2011! After exploring the blogging world, my life took a turn for the better and my home slowly changed into my workplace! I’ve been blogging for the last six years now and I can’t be more happier with my work!
My Blogging Journey! 2011 to 2016
Why/When did I start blogging? : I’d been reading several beauty blogs on the internet when I was 16 years old, still in my high school. As a very curious teenage girl, I browsed through product reviews, DIY facial recipes and many more skincare stuff during my free time! I liked the concept of reviews as they helped me choose my products wisely. And then one fine day, I thought why not to start my very own blog! And then, blogging happened!
First blog! When I started, I was stuck at the technical part and unfortunately, could not proceed further! I tried creating a blog and it was a big failure! Though I managed to write unique content, (with tons of errors though) it somehow failed to materialize I then gave it all a break and returned back to blogging after I completed my 10th grade!
How MABH happened? : After learning things from my previous blogging errors (and two blogs that failed!), I created blog MABH in 2011 and worked on it day and night to build it as a platform that readers can trust. Eventually, it started kicking in.
Making a career with my blog! : As I gained readers & organic traffic I started making money by selling advertising space paired up with Google adsense! (Shared my experience here on the beauty blogging series!) I also started earning by working with brands, through campaigns and direct ads. Gradually, I realized I was making a living out of doing what I love the most – writing/blogging!
However, it was not easy as a knife on the cake! It involved a lot of my time and energy. It took almost 10 months for me to receive my first cheque and that too was for $100. Blogging is of course not easy money! If you’re not passionate about your work (your niche!), if you’re only here to make money, blogging won’t please you with a positive experience at all!
Schooling? : When I was still a school student, my work robbed all of my time and hence I had to stay at home (for my passion!) and complete my school studies in correspondence. It was a bold step but I have no regrets! I barely took one month break to prepare for my 12th grade exams and I still blogged during my study holidays! After all, it was and it is what I am passionate about doing!
A new venture! : In 2013, after I’ve gained a decent readership, I started selling my homemade hair product – the MABH Fast Growth Hair Oil online (at www.mabh.in) after receiving numerous suggestions from my readers who’d read and liked my hair care posts! Today, I’m overwhelmed with all support and love! My readers made me one small, happy entrepreneur. From blogger to entrepreneur, it was totally unplanned but I feel very lucky and fortunate!
I’m now doing my bachelors degree in psychology through correspondence! Sadly, I get VERY less time to study; (Read no time!) hence I’m yet to attend my exams and clear the papers. However I’m happy with what I’m doing now as my schedule keeps me active, occupied and content. Unlike a 9 to 5, blogging is of course VERY challenging! It’s a 24/7 work especially when you also take care of a small business but I like challenges!
What do I do today? : Right now, I blog, I work with my writers, I work on the business and I work with brands and PR firms to make a living! I take care of all the back-end processes, SEO and product manufacturing work. I also have been thinking to start a few new ventures – and if I do, you will be the first one to know! Without my readers, I’d have not been here blogging today. I’m extremely thankful to you all!
I’m also looking forward to simplify my work by creating a small office space and hiring staff! By the end of 2016, I hope I’ll be settled with things!
About MABH! (What do I do here?)
In this space, I share product reviews, makeup tutorials and skin/hair care posts. You will find more hair care posts from me as I have this ‘love’ for long lustrous hair! Do check my hair growth journey when you get time.
I occasionally share my personal life updates, cooking journeys and other fun posts to keep the space engaged! I’ve also been lately writing this series on Beauty Blogging – to share my experiences, tips and ideas on how to start and run a blog for newbie bloggers! Don’t forget to check the series if you think it will interest you in any way.
What do I do when I’m not blogging/working? : I study my subjects! Okay. That was a joke. I hadn’t touched my books in
months years and I feel guilty for that! But I’m very happy about my career that has been yielding me so many things today! I couldn’t ask for more! But yes, I’ll eventually study my subjects. No urge!
Other than blogging, I do cook (everyday!), read (novels!), shop (a lot!) and especially, buy stuffed animals! I don’t think I can ever express my love for cooking in words! After a long tiring day/week, all I do is cook! It relaxes my mind like anything. It has always been a favorite hobby and I also have a small food blog! (Unfortunately, I’m yet to make time to work on the recipes there but very soon, I WILL. After all, it’s about food and ‘cooking’!)
My skin & hair type : Being a south Indian, I’ve a deep dusky skin. It’s more on the sensitive side. I’ve got a mid thigh length hair. My hair is fine, straight and black with very subtle waves!
