First of all, I missed you all and missed writing here for one complete month. From December 1st I stopped publishing anything on ShoutMeLoud, as I was busy with my wedding. I got married on 7th December 14, and after that I travelled to the beautiful country of Bali and Singapore.
It was a tough decision for me to stay completely away from work, but I decided to stick to it so that I can enjoy my wedding with full-heart and when I resume work there is no looking back. Moreover, after blogging for six years, I have put my blogging business on Auto-pilot, and staying away for a while didn’t affect the business. ( I will be sharing some interesting facts about the blog running on auto-pilot for one month in the next post).
Now we are at the end of 2014, and I will ensure that 2015 will be a great year for you and all other readers of ShoutMeLoud. I will share my plans and strategies later but first let me share few stuff from my personal life.
Wedding and new chapter of the life:
On 7th December 2014 I started the new chapter of my life and got married with Shallu. If you are linked with me on Facebook or subscribe to ShoutMeLoud Newsletter, you must have received the news before everybody else. Here is my life changing announcement on Facebook:
Our wedding was an arrange marriage but 7 months of courtship period gave us an ample amount of time to know each-other and be ready for one of the biggest change of our lives. Here are some of the wedding pictures ( It was an Indian wedding):
For honeymoon we went to Bali (The last paradise) and Singapore and here is an image from Singapore Sentosa island. If time permits I will share more details about these destination on my personal blog at denharsh.com

Alas!,, now the wedding time is over and holiday season has come to an end, it’s time for me to give a fresh start to ShoutMeLoud and other blogs in the ShoutDreams blog network. In meantime, I have also spent a lot of time reading and learning new things which I’m very excited to share with you in the coming days.
One of the Shouter asked me: “If my better half is also a blogger”?. Well she is not an online person at all and works in a different domain all together. This way what ever we share regarding work is new for each other and so much to learn from each-other.
Will blogging be the same after my married life?
This is another question I have been asked by many of the Shouters and I’m still in the process of finding the answer. One of the few things which I have in mind is to find the perfect balance between professional and personal life and I’m sure my wedding will help me to be more systematic and productive.
Currently, I’m residing in Delhi and in the next few months will be shifting to Gurgaon to my own flat and planning to move my home office to one of the shared office space in Gurgaon. Once I have more data to share about “blogging life after wedding“, I will definitely share with you here on this blog.
One of my target for 2015 is to grow the team and hire the best people in the industry to grow ShoutMeLoud to the next level. Also Shoutuniversity is the first thing that i will launch in 2015. More on strategies will be followed with next post. For now, I only wanted to share my happiest moment with you.
More over now you can continue coming to ShoutMeLoud like old days for new content every day and I have many unseen and exciting things planned for ShoutMeLoud readers. If you have not yet subscribed to ShoutMeLoud newsletter, I suggest you to sign up right now as email is the first place where I share the biggest and most important news.
Last but not the least, ShoutMeLoud turned 6 on 1st December 2014 and few giveaways and freebies will follow in the coming week.
Thanks for your patience and for being an awesome reader.
