The Review:

Snobbity Snowman is a jolly good time for young readers and story time lovers. It has beautiful illustrations and a great moral. Your little one will love it!

I really enjoyed reading this. It was super adorable. My cousin Maddie also enjoyed having it read to her by my Aunt. She had a big smile at the end of the story and sat quietly throughout the whole book(seen in the story time video below).

A Little List To Blog Better

Sketches By Nitesh

I am doing this a lot recently, aren’t I? Post after post filled with advice. How to blog better? How to write better? In reality, what the heck do I really know?

So, I thought of a solution. In case, I’ve been misleading all of you, I’ve devoured the internet (Count ten hours of useless browsing session filled with coffee and heavy metal memes, black comedy and random posts that I clicked) to find some quality content. Content that’ll help you out on the mysterious dark art of blogging.
