About

Welcome to my blog! Its name came from my birthstone, peridot. A cove is a secluded place, much like my blog is my corner of the internet. After narrowing down from a list of names, Peridot Cove was born! I absolutely love sharing my writing, photographs, and life with all of you! Blogging has shaped my life more than I ever dreamed it would, and I am forever grateful.

I am an Indian-American teenager with a passion for journalism, swimming, tennis, and volunteering. You can find me writing, playing the piano, or most often, on my phone. I'm addicted! I'm an avid Instagrammer and YouTube watcher. I even started my own channel a long time ago, but I've stuck to just watching from then on!

I'm extremely hard-working and compassionate, though I've been told I can be a bit stubborn. :) I have a major sweet tooth (my favorite desserts are ice cream and chocolate chip cookies!). 

On Peridot Cove, you'll find pieces of poetry, ramblings, and other happenings in my life. If you have any questions or comments, leave a comment below or check out my favorite posts, linked here, here, and here. Grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile!

  1. This is an amazing blog. It has even inspired me to start a Anonymous blog! ALSO, I suggest reading "Girl Online" by Zoe Sugg!

    2. Welcome to the blogging community! I'm thrilled to be able to inspire you. I love Zoe's videos, so I already have her book on my TBR list. I would love to see your blog, but I also would love it if you could email me. I need to know who you are and who I inspired!

  4. Hey, Sanjana. You are wonderful, your blog is brilliant. Also, you and I share quite a few things in common- I love coding & web design, as well as laughing and cake batter.
    Keep blogging, always.

    And hey, you asked me a couple of questions on my blog. I decided I'd answer them here, so that you definitely see it. I got the paper lanterns from Typo. (It's a store linked to Cotton On, have you heard of it?)
    Yes, I have considered opening an Etsy shop...and I am, still. But I don't know if I will.

    Thank you so much for your really sweet comment. ♥

  9. Hello, Sanjana! Your blog looks darling, good job on your design! I wish I could learn to love designing + coding, and I get around fine, but to be completely honest...it mostly just frustrates me. ;) I adore blogging, though which we both have in common. I want to thank you for commenting on my blog, though. and being so incredibly sweet. Have a lovely week! <3

    1. Hi, Abbey! ❤️ Thank you so much for stopping by, and for your sweetness! Design and coding were definitely difficult for me to get into at first, but I've found that the more you play around with certain codes, the more you learn to enjoy it. xx Just keep trying!

  15. Hello Sanjana,
    My name is Dani (despite what it says above my comment), I JUST found this blog JUST RIGHT NOW and... I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! I read all of your posts from back when you first started blogging. I kinda jumped on the blogging band-wagon a little late... so I've been trying to see as many different blogs as I can. I found out about your blog because I was visiting Amy's blog (http://littlemoondragon.blogspot.com/) and saw you had commented, so I was like "Hm... let's go check out HER blog!" So I... ya know... DID! XD I'd love it if you'd come check out my blog? It's called The Dani Jones Blog... So, yeah!
    Keep on rocking
