Hi There! My name is Gurkamal Bhamber, also called Gurk or Gurki by friends and family. I live in the capital city of Canada, Ottawa, ON with my husband and 4 yr old SV. I started The Women Talk way back in Dec 2014 and have been enjoying the blogging journey since then.
When I first started this blog, I did not think anyone besides my husband and my sisters would be reading my ramblings. But as I became more focused, my readership grew. I am so thrilled to meet new friends every day.
Little Bit About Me and My Family
Originally from India, I have BTech and MS in Computer Engineer. I moved to the US for higher studies. I have worked at many different places including California, Michigan and Windsor as a Computer Engineer. My father is a retired professor and mother retired High School Principal. They live in India. We are three siblings and I am the youngest one, needless to say, the spoilt one 🙂
I am so grateful for my family for they are my biggest supporters and encourage me to be the best at what I do. My dad and mom worked hard to make sure that their children were well educated. My sister made sure that I was pampered really well whenever I needed to. My husband always supports me with my blogging adventures. He is the one who set up this blog for me, helped design my logo, and technically maintains this blog.
Purpose Behind Starting This Blog
When SV was born in 2012, I wanted to make a journal of his milestones, his daily routine and keep a collection of kid friendly recipes at one place. I also shared his pictures from time to time with my family and friends using TWT as a medium. My very first post was for my dad on Father’s Day. With time, friends of friends and family started reading my blog and I started getting more engagement from my readers.
That was when I started to take my blog seriously and started sharing more than just one or two liners. I started sharing healthy recipes, DIY ideas for kids, money saving tips for parents, blogging tips, home decor and organization tips. That’s why, even though my blog existed in 2012 for my personal ramblings, I actually started blogging in 2014.
Here are some more facts about me;
- I am a Computer Engineering grad from University of Massachusetts, Lowell.
- I am a vegetarian; no meat for me, not even seafood.
- I have lived in Boston, Bay Area and Michigan. Boston is still my fave city. Go Patriots!
- I love Starbucks’ Cappuccino Latte, in fact I am drinking one right now!
- I am such a procrastinator and need lot of organization (no wonder, I need these printables to keep me from going insane!)
- My parents mean the world to me. A little bit more about my dad and mom.
- Besides blogging, I love to read fiction and paint on the canvas.
That’s all about me.
