In the Metroplus, The Hindu, Trichy Edition of 11th February 2017, Nahla Nainar has written under the title "I blog, Therefore Iam", a few lines about my blog which are reproduced here:
“I started scanning and uploading image files of my published articles in my blog 7 to 8 years ago,” says Radha Balu, a veteran Tamil freelance journalist.
The 60-year-old writer is regular in updating the posts on her four blogs (radhabaloo.blogspot.com), even though, she says, the reading habit is declining. “Young women these days don’t seem to have the interest in reading, even though they have a better exposure to the world than our generation,” says Radha.
“Reading a printed book can convey not just the story, but also the memories associated with a writer’s style and tactile feel of the publication.”
"A frequent traveller, Radha uses her journeys abroad to write travelogues. “The internet is a great resource for travel writers. I tend to research my destinations online before I visit the places, just to ensure that I don’t miss any detail,” she says.
“Readers recall my name from my articles in Tamil magazines, but quite a few of these are also visitors to my blogs. Blogging has a way of connecting complete strangers,” she says.
