I had such a wonderful chat with Derrick and I am so happy to share this interview with you guys- I hope you enjoy reading it because we had a lot of fun with the interview and if you did enjoy it check out Derrick’s blog which will be linked below.
1. Thanks so much for being a part of this interview. Tell us a little bit about yourself and what your blog is about.
Thank you Pooja for this opportunity. My name is Derrick Ogara, I blog about wellbeing, I’d write about anything that touches on our wellbeing from mental health to fitness.
2. When did you start your blog and what made you decide to start blogging?
I started blogging in June 2020, we were under a lockdown, I wanted something to keep me busy and distract me from the outside world that’s when I figured blogging would help me sail through those moments. I didn’t only help me sail through the pandemic, it also became part of me. Initially, I wanted it to be my health journal to trace my own progress health-wise and help my readers at the same time. Nothing changed, I am still working with the initial plan.
3. What are some of your long term blogging goals?
I have always wanted to touch lives and that’s what I live for. As long as my writing is helpful to a soul out there, even if it’s just one, I won’t stop writing.
4. You talk about a number of topics on your blog- where do you draw inspiration from for your posts?
My life and the things I come a across on a daily basis. To help others improve their wellbeing, I have to improve mine first and that’s what inspires me. I even wrote about living by my words in my post “blogger backsliding” http://healthcheck.health.blog/2021/02/18/blogger-backsliding/
Lots of reading has also helped me pick inspiration for blogging.
5. What are some things you love about blogging?
I love the blogging community. Bloggers here are so friendly and supportive, that’s priceless.
6. What are some of your blogging pet peeves?
I don’t know how to answer this… I’m always focused on the positive side, I can’t think of any pet peeve I have come across or let’s just say I have not been around long enough.
7. What is your favourite food?
I have two; corn and chicken prepared in any way. Haha!
8. What animal would you love to have as a pet if you could have any animal in the world as a pet?
I would still choose a dog. Dogs are outgoing, friendly and intelligent, I just love them.
9. What is your current favourite tv show?
Breaking Bad will always be my favourite, the creativity behind it is unmatched. I also love animes.
10. Thanks again and please feel free to add anything you would like to share with the readers.

Great interview as usual, with a guest who enjoys what he does. I agree that our blogging friends are important to us and that we blog to support each other. Hope you’re both having a great weekend.
So glad you enjoyed the interview and have a great weekend too.
Great interview.have a great weekend.
Wonderful pictures of dishes. You are such a good cook–it’s healthy, no doubt tasty, and pretty too. LOL.
Thank you Haoyando🙂 Still working on being a good cook though.
Cheers to a fellow pandemic-inspired blogger🌺
There are a lot of those!
Thanks a lot Pooja 🙂
My pleasure and thank you as well I really enjoyed your answers!
I loved this interview. Another dog lover who writes to help others too? It’s great and I love that, and I love that level of humility. I’ve always said that even if I only help a handful of people, I’d rather do that than be a name that is globally known but nobody really cares about.
Glad you enjoyed the interview and I feel the same way- help as many people as you can even if it’s just a few or even just one person.
Good choice Pooja and lovely to meet you Derrick!
We are a lucky community to have each other here in WP I agree.
I think you haven’t been around long enough or see out of rose color glasses which is all good.. lol. Stick around and you’r bound to find a few here and there. You can’t help it…. right Pooja? 🤣
Visit me sometime and let’s be friends.
You have a great friend in Pooja…. We all do!!!!! 💖🙏🙏
Thanks and I agree after a while you start to notice a couple of annoying little things lol! Thank you!!
Just a few… 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
We don’t want to corrupt Derrick too fast. 🤣🤷♀️
Time will tell 😅
Send a link to your blog Cindy🙂
Glad to know there is another blogger out there not focusing on how large his audience is, but whether he can make a positive difference in someone’s life, even if it’s just one person.
Yeah for sure Derrick is wonderful!
just tried… don’t think it went through…
You must have the patience of a saint.
