You guys and all the amazing comments you leave on this blog!

2. What is your favourite food?

At the moment it’s kimchi- in particular from a brand called Mother-In-Law. 

3. What do you like more; Camping or Binge Watching shows at home?

It depends on my mood. I would have picked binge watching in general but I have been doing that for the last like five months so right now I’m going to pick camping. 

4. What advice would you like to give to the fellow bloggers?

Blogging is a two way street- be active on other blogs if you want others to be active on yours.

5. If you were to choose between never being able to see water and never being able to see fire, what would you choose? And why?

That one is difficult! But I am not a fan of large bodies of water in general so I would pick not being able to see water. Also not seeing fire would be dangerous because I could walk into it and get burnt to death.

Questions

Why do you blog?

It’s the perfect outlet for me. 

What things are you interested in besides your blog niche?

History, archaeology, astronomy. 

Which of your posts has been the most popular? Reflect on this… why, do you think? Do you agree? Is it really your best work or is it just what seems like would appeal to readers (in your opinion)?

My most popular blog posts are usually my advice posts. I can see why they are popular especially for newer bloggers because I try to offer advice in a simple way that even people who aren’t great with technology can understand. I do that because it was quite difficult for me when I first started out and I had a hard time understanding a lot of the advice posts I was reading. I think all my work is my best work because I try to give all my posts my all. 

What motivates you in life?

Money. Kidding. I always want to spread positivity and bring about positive change and that’s what motivates me.

Do you ever feel nervous before publishing a blog post?

Yes, almost always.

Beautiful Blogger Award

Thank you!

I want to thank Krisha for nominating me for this award all the way back in June- I am so sorry it took me forever to get to it! This is the first time I have been nominated for this award and I am truly honoured. Krisha has a really great blog with book reviews, interviews, discussions and more. Do take a minute to go over and check it out by clicking here. 

Rules:

1.    Link to the blogger who has nominated you.
2.    List 7 random facts about you.
3.    Nominate 7 creative, beautiful bloggers and let them know about about the nomination.

Random Facts About Me

  • I cry really easily
  • I love history
  • I love all things food
  • I’m terrified of ghosts and paranormal stuff
  • I hate carrots
  • I love makeup/nails/beauty stuff
  • I secretly- not really secretly lol- love Twilight 

My Nominees

I want to nominate these seven bloggers linked below because I truly feel that they are beautiful inside and out and that’s why they deserve this award. I think they are all doing such a good job spreading positivity in the WordPress community and I have been lucky enough to interact with them and I can truly say that they are really amazing people to talk to. There is of course no pressure on anyone I nominated to participate- if you wish to do so that would be awesome and if not that’s totally okay too!

Tiani

Hilary

Catherine

Princess

Jirah

Elle

The last person I want to nominate everyone reading this who feels like this would be something they would be interested in doing. I think we are all beautiful inside and out and it would not be fair for me to just nominate seven people because there are so many of you out there that deserve the nomination. I would love it if as many people as possible accept this nomination but of course again there is absolutely no pressure.

Vincent Ehindero Blogger Award #2

Thank you!

I want to thank Jevannel for nominating me for this award. They are a very interesting blog with resources about online teaching and learning. I would definitely recommend stopping by and checking out the blog by clicking here.

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you with a link to their blog.
  2. Make a post of the award (with a photo of the logo).
  3. Post the rules.
  4. Ask 5-10 questions of your choice.
  5. Nominate 10-30 other bloggers (or more) and notify them.

Questions

1) What is your writing style?
I think a lot of it is like a stream of consciousness.

2) Do you plan your blogs or is it more so have freestyle?
I used to freestyle it but clearly that was not working for me so now I plan them every week.

3) What is it that you enjoy most about being a blogger?
Talking/socialising with other bloggers.

4) What is the best piece of advice you have ever received from someone?
My mum always tells me to be myself and not care about what others think.
5) Do you see yourself blogging in 5 years?
Yes, if everything goes as planned I most definitely will be blogging in 5 years. Also, I’m not sure why that sounds so sinister…

6) What been the highlight of this year?
It’s 2020 so I guess I’ll say reaching 17k on WP.

7) What do you miss about last year?
Everything. Being able to go outside without being paranoid, being able to not wash my hands every five minutes, being able to ride on the bus, being able to attend in school classes, going shopping. Just everything.

8) If you could change one thing what would it be?
I would end the pandemic.
9) Would you encourage your kids to become bloggers?
Hmmm that’s a good question. I would encourage them if they wanted to be bloggers but I wouldn’t force them if they didn’t because I’m not a regular mum I’m a cool mum.

10) If you could snap your fingers right now and change one thing about the world what would that one thing be?
I would make sure this pandemic never happened and I would also want to end inequality.
