How Crossroadadventure Name was Born
My very first adventurous trip to Bir Billing in Himachal gave me Kick to be very honest.
It made me think every day that; is there a way where I can share my experience or can I get this Kick all the life? I got to know about starting a blog/website.
One day while thinking, what name should I give to my blog which will sound appealing and suit my niche too. I told to myself “This is a new path I am choosing right now and something related to two ways where one will lead to normal life and others will lead to Kick life”. That’s how “Crossroadadventure Name” was born.
It turned 16 months old (1.4 years old) a few days back.
Have you seen a baby grow?
Yeah right – Crawl, Walk, Run and ….
My blog is currently between crawling and walking stage.
i.e. this was little behind the scenes of how “Crossroadadventure” name was born.

7. Finding unique topics – Finding topics that you love to write on and can apply your unique sense is quite hectic to find.
8. Continuously updating yourselves – Keeping yourself updated and technology goes hand and hand. You have to keep changing your style, layout and writing technique so that your work doesn’t look outdated.
