My first selfie of 2014
It's a brand new day and an exciting New Year. Happy 2014 my loves! The New Year has arrived which means even more opportunities for unleashing your creative juices. From Creative Ajay, Greetings!
It has been a little over 7 months now since Creative Ajay went live on the worldwide web. And what a journey it has been! I'm grateful to everyone who has made this venture not only a reality, but also a success. Thank you to all my extended family on the various social networks and in other media who show me unconditional love every single day, especially through the times when a cloud of dejection painfully looms over my head.
So what can you expect from Creative Ajay in 2014? My love for makeup artistry was the impetus that led me to create a platform to share my looks and feature other inspiring artists. Although makeup remains a core component of this site, I'm seeing this project segueing into a whole new direction. Take for instance Creative Ajay's kitchen--my passion for culinary explorations has opened up a new world of possibilities where I can't wait to whip-up and share the recipes to my new delights. Who knew that I had this urge inside me to indulge in such heavenly fare? You can definitely expect more delectable treats.
And I'm totally blown away by the guests that have been featured on the Spotlight section so far. What's so amazing is that I personally know the individuals featured last year, and I am just wowed by their grit, creativity and passion for what they believe in. I knew that I always wanted to share my story but I'm so fascinated by the boundless volumes of creativity that exist, that I had to share the stories of other fascinating minds. I'll be working on presenting more incredible guests.
Were all my goals accomplished for Creative Ajay in 2013? Not really. I started out with many grand ideas, many of which are still in the pipeline. I love fashion too much not to have endless pages of eye-catching garb on this site, so I have my work cut out for me in this regard. I'll bring more street swag in addition to more of my styles.
How does Creative Ajay match up to other sites? I use Alexa ranking to track the traffic rank and I've had my share of highs and lows. I've seen my global rank climb to as high as 300K plus, and my US ranking soar to a little over 70K. These are the stats as of today, 1/5/14. I try not to get overly consumed in rankings but you can't help but to analyze and see where you stand. After all, what would Creative Ajay be without our wonderful audience?This one is an easy guess: create more engaging, useful and insightful content so I can build more traffic and improve my rankings.
In a nutshell, it's really down to business for us. The truth is, sometimes I can barely find the urge to log onto my server and start writing and sharing. There are many times when I turn on my computer with the intention of writing a post, and two hours later, I realize that I've visited quite a few sites, browsed the web and still haven't gotten to editing Creativeajay. But when I eventually get to writing an article and click "Publish," I'm elated with the joy of knowing I just shared a piece of me with the world. Stay tuned for more from Creative Ajay: more relatable, inspiring and entertaining content where we will hold nothing back.
Continue to live life to its fullest, continue to love, to give, follow your passions, defy the odds, get out of the "boxes of limitation" and stay Creative. Many blessings for the New Year......Be Bold. Be Alluring. Be Different!
