I am so happy to finally post this interview with Chidinma– she is such a lovely person and has been so supportive of my blog. I truly hope you enjoy this interview and take the time to check out her wonderful blog.
1.Thanks so much for being a part of this interview. Please tell us a little about yourself and what your blog is about.
Thank you so much for having me on your blog. My name is Chidinma Precious Obiaor. I am from Nigeria and I am a freshman in college studying to be a nurse. I am a goal-oriented and highly organized person. My blog is all about inspiring and uplifting people through written words, and sometimes poetry.
2. When and why did you start blogging?
I started blogging on the 24th of April 2020 during the lockdown. Before then I loved writing and I did most of my writing in my diary. But the pandemic helped me realize that I needed to do something more since I had a lot of free time and also since there was a lot going on in the world. I thought that it would be the perfect time to inspire people and give them hope. So I looked up the best website for blogging, WP came up and that was it.
3. On your blog you write about a number of different topics- do you have a favourite topic to write about and if so which topic is it?
Yes, I do have a favorite topic.The topic that I love to write more about on my blog is motivational quotes because I love spreading positivity and I think that sharing some inspiring and motivating quotes from time to time would encourage other people and give them strength to keep going no matter the situation. Personally, I love motivational quotes a lot because they really help me to accomplish a lot.
4. You migrated from Nigeria to the US as a teenager. What is one thing you miss about Nigeria and one thing that you love about living in the US?
One thing I miss about Nigeria is the traditional festivals and one thing I love about America is how easily people get to express their rights unlike other places in the world where freedom of speech does not even exist.
5. You mention on your blog that you love to cook- what are some of your favourite dishes to make?
I haven’t had the opportunity to learn how to prepare meals from other cultures. But some of my favorite dishes that I love to make are: Beef stew with white rice, melon soup, fried and jollof rice, plantain porridge and African salad.
6. Has blogging changed your life in any way and if so how?
Blogging gives me a sense of accomplishment. Because, once I was writing in my diary and now I have to write what the world is going to read. It makes me nervous sometimes but remembering why I started blogging in the first place keeps me focused.
7. What are your future plans for your blog?
I don’t really plan to make money through my blog. All I just want is to build a community where people uplift and encourage each other.
8. What do you enjoy most about blogging?
What I enjoy most about blogging is that it allows me to express myself and my ideas in a way that I might not be able to through dialogue, create something beautiful and show what’s inside to those outside.
9. What is your favourite food?
My favorite food is pasta, precisely spaghetti anyday.
10. What is the craziest thing you believed as a child?
One time, I swallowed the seed of a fruit. My brother made me believe that the seed was going to grow from my stomach out to my head. He also said that the tree was going to stay on top of my head and start bearing fruit. I really believed his crazy story then. But remembering it now makes me laugh out loud.
11. Who inspires you the most?
My elder sister inspires me the most because she has this way of handling whatever life throws at her. She is a very strong lady.
12. What is your favourite song?
My favorite song is “YOU SAY” By Lauren Daigle. It is a pretty good song, you can check it out.
13. If you could travel to any place where would it be?
I would love to travel to Dubai. It’s a very beautiful place. I have been there once but I didn’t really see anything.
14. Thanks again and please feel free to add anything you would like to tell the readers.

Wait, trees don’t grow out of your head when you eat seeds? Shows what I know?
I used to think the tree will grow in your stomach and you’ll have a tiny tree inside you forever so I guess we’re both wrong?
I guess so.

Good to know.
I’ve never tried melon soup or fried and jollof rice. They sound tasty. I wish I can have the recipes. Thank you for the post. It’s interesting to hear people’s stories of themselves.

I just googled a jollof rice recipe and it sounds delicious. I am going to make it this weekend. I also googled melon soup and found cantaloupe soup recipe. I probably will make it the week after. Thank you for letting me know such wonderful things. I am always in search of healthy recipes.

Lol, as a young Nigerian those where the myths we do hear from our Nigerian parents or family just to prevent us doing somethings maybe when they are wrong. Besides, Nigerian Jollof Rice is on point 👌🏼. I really enjoyed this interview.
