i think a learning something new can be very helpful, instead of learning of what is very related to your work. when you try to learn something else, 1. it allows you to think beyond your small pond. 2. new art form can also help you in crafting your skills well. At least you can have two or three post around, how you learn the french or play violin.

Hey Rahul! Yet another amazing post by you!

Well, its very normal for me to get overwhelmed by my blogging career, as an tech editor and other blogging niche. Normally, whenever I feel down. I take a vacation, and avoid working for couple of hours, and make different searches on the Google to learn more interesting things and to take a look deeply at my fellow bloggers.
