7 South Asian Bloggers From Memphis to Follow

Hello my KMD lovelies!

In this upcoming Diwali Season, I wanted to give back to the community this year.  We have had such a weird/odd year so, giving back was the one way that made me feel good. One way of giving back was to represent South Asian Bloggers in Memphis on my blog.

For a long time, it was me and another fellow South Asian blogger in Memphis (Vidhi of coffeeVSchai). Well soon into my blogging journey, Vidhi had moved away from Memphis and it was me as the sole South Asian blogger in Memphis. About a year later, I found my good friend, Richa of iscriblr, on Instagram and our friendship has been unbreakable since then. Fast forward to a couple of months ago, I found quite a few local South Asian Bloggers.  I was so happy to find that there was a little community of us South Asians that I knew I wanted to showcase them in a way.  So here we are; hope you enjoy!
