Hi everyone. I hope you all are doing well. Today, I got nominated for two awards, and I’ve decided to post on it. Before now, I was nominated for another award but I kept postponing it, and now, I can’t keep on. This might be a long one, but regardless, do read the post. Why? You might ask. The first is, you might get nominated by me, and the second is, you’ll learn some things about my ever boring self, and third, you’ll have fun.
I was nominated for the sunshine blogger Awards a few weeks back, and the versatile and blogger recognition award just today.
I am going to answer all the questions and give the rules, and at the end of the post, I am going to give the names of the people I nominate. I am nominating fifteen people. There are a lot of great blogs out there, but I have decided to mostly nominate the bloggers who are new, and deserve some recognition. I am nominating all of them for the three different Awards, but since I want to be nice😲 and reduce the work load, I would give them the choice of choosing, of the three, two of whichever award they want.
SUNSHINE BLOGGER AWARD
- Thank the person that nominated you
- Answer their questions
- Nominate fellow bloggers you follow
- Give them ten questions to answer.
I was nominated for this awesome award by the very wonderful Amie. We are both Nigerians, so I am very much able to relate with her posts, and they never fail to crack a smile out of me.
QUESTIONS ASKED BY GIRLFRIEND (Amie)
1. What turns you on the most?
Girl friend says these questions ‘must’ be answered. However, I don’t have an answer to this question, or rather, I wouldn’t answer. I know. I know. I’m taking the fun out of it, but I’m not ready to explore these parts of me with you all yet.
2. What turns you off the most?
I guess when people are too over confident? I like someone that acts “human”, and that means making mistakes and admitting to them. I don’t like it when someone sees his or herself as superior, and makes whatever any other person says seem irrelevant.
3. How many real friends do you have?
One. It’s a girl that even though I don’t tell her a lot of things, I know she is a real friend. She calls me her best friend.
4.Are you in school? What are you studying or what did you study?
As of now, I’m not in school, but by the end of the year/ next year I should be (by God’s grace), studying law, to resume for my second year in the university.
5. What are you most afraid of?
Death. I know it’s something we should accept since its inevitable, but I am afraid of death.
6.Do you believe in God?
Yes. Very much. I’m a Christian, and I believe in his supremacy above every other thing. I made a short post about it which you can read here.
7.Say something about environmental sanitation.
We all have a role to play in the neatness of our community. We can’t blame the government, or the people employed to clean the environments. We are responsible for the cleanliness of our environment.
8. What is the best gift you’ve received or would like to receive?
I haven’t received a lot of gifts in my few years of existence. But the gift I would very much like to receive is love. I would love to be loved by the person I love.
9. Water, wine, or vodka?
Water. I haven’t ever tried vodka.
10. Best food?
It changes with my mood.
The people I nominate for this award is at the end of this post.
3. This is where I am supposed to ask my questions but because I can’t think of any😛, I am going to use all of Amie’s questions.
BLOGGER RECOGNITION AWARD
1. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
I started this blog a month and about three days ago. I had just finished my diploma, and had begun learning to sew. I love writing, so I decided to give blogging a try. So far, the journey has been a welcoming and great one.
2. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
Being a new blogger on my own, I would give advises based in the little experience I have here. The first is, write what you want. Do not let anyone make you think that there is a particular topic that people want to read about. For me, writing is the strip tease of the soul, so just write away.
The second is, no two persons blog grows at the same rate. There are some people who, within blogging a month, they have more than a hundred followers. Even if you started at the same time with the person, do not feel discouraged. It doesn’t mean that you’ve not got stuff to give, or that your writing is not good.
3. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
I want to thank Jade, for nominating me for this award. Jade posts her beautiful art here on her blog. She is a very talented artist that has a thing for autumn😉
4. Select fifteen other blogs you want to give the award to
I’m going to do that at the end of this post.
VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
Once again, I want to thank the beautiful Jade, lover of autumn, an artist, for nominating me.
2. Share the award in your blog.
Wait… That’s what I’m doing right about now😳
3. Share seven random facts about yourself.
- I am insecure of a lot of things, and battle with a low self esteem
- I love to read. Novels and school related work.
- I write fiction novels
- I am of a short height🙈🙈
- I am a Nigerian
- I don’t schedule anything cause I never seem to do it at the time. I find it easier to work on my pace, without setting time to do it, or what to achieve at the time.
- I’ve never gone out with friends.
4. Tag ten or fifteen bloggers you want to give the award to.
Also, at the end of this post.
Hi again everyone. As I said earlier in the post, I am new here, so I do not know a lot of bloggers. Yet.
Anyway, I decided to nominate some new bloggers who I believe write good stuff and should be recognized.
- Orchids and Sweet tea
- Kristi kapdi
- Untypical dreamer
- Fragments of my mind
- The chaotic mind and more
To these fifteen people, congratulations😃.
Remember, if you want, you can post about the three awards you have been nominated for. The least you are allowed to post about however is two of these awards. Don’t forget to thank me, who nominated you.
This took me a lot of time, and it is mostly because I am using my phone. Typing everything, then linking again is not an easy one. It is the reason I put off blogging about the sunshine blogger award for so long.
Were you able to relate with any of my answers?
Feel free to comment whatever you think about the post.
