Here’s my story of how I went from being an Electrical Engineer to a WordPress Journalist cum Researcher and how I managed my passion for becoming my paycheck. Today, I review products, provide WordPress support and handle technical documentations.
P.S. If you think my story has a lot of WordPress in it, then you cannot be more right. 🙂
I’ll start by stating the obvious ~ It’s hard to write about yourself. I don’t call myself a hero, hell I am no hero. On the contrary, I am embarking on a journey to be better at what I do, and I cannot wait to see what is in store for me. Right now I’m happy and satisfied with what I do, I am surrounded by great people trying to accomplish great things and not many people can say that about their career.
So, let me thank WordPress of course and then Topher, who’s been doing a fantastic job via inviting people to share their essays with the community. Writing is my thing, but penning down all the highs and lows was quite challenging in itself.
The Making of a WordPress Journalist – as I titled it, recently got published on HeroPress. Here you’ll explore most of the aspects of my professional life.
Studying something under the influence of parents and then adopting an alternate career path is a horrendous combination. But still I did, and it’s been almost five years that I’m working as a professional copywriter and running a startup named FinkTanks which aims to train females along the same lines just as I did. Currently, I’m a part of WPTie and have adopted WordPress as my new gluten. Because whatever I am today, that’s because of WordPress and the community around it.

[…] Last year, Topher from HeroPress reached out to me and asked me to pen down my life story. To say that it was a tough job would be an understatement. But I am proud of what I am. If you are interested to know what I am made of, then read my story → The Making of a WordPress Journalist. […]
I just read your story and it’s so inspiring. In fact I could related to it so much. I also come from an engineering background, the only difference being that I jumped into journalism right after. And then into WooCommerce.
You’ve indeed put it beautifully into words, we’re all on this journey of getting better at what we do. I love your blog – there’s so much of personality here.
