Thank you JOYCEMARYJ for nominating me for this award.

Do visit her site ” A Life’s Journey Little things matter” for beautiful poems and stories.



• Thank the person who nominated you with the link to their blog.

• Make a post of the award (with photo).

• Post the rules.

• Ask 5-10 questions of your choice.

• Nominate 10-30 other bloggers (or more) and notify them.

• Follow Vincent Ehindero to qualify for a free blog promotion, shoutout and more blogging opportunities.


My answer to her questions:

What gives you the inspiration to write or take pictures? What’s your muse? Past experiences, recent issues in news, other posts and comments.

After writing your content, do you edit or erase certain words or sentences to make sure that you don’t offend your readers? A second thought? Yes! If it makes reading better!

How do you exactly feel after pressing the publish button on your blog? – Ah, task completed!

Do you anticipate that your blog will be a hit? Does it make you anxious? The ones I least expect good responses to became a hit instead!

How do you explain your life before and after you started your blog? I have always wanted to write but couldn’t find the time. Covid-19 has enabled it to happen. I may slow down once other activities return. That is, if Covid-19 ever clear! Besides being a home-maker, I do part-time work at hospitals. I would love to take my son for his bowling practices again!


There are so many good bloggers. I am still learning. So here, I nominate:-


My Questions for these new nominees:

  1. What is your greatest motivation to blog?
  2. What takes up most of your time in blogging?
  3. How do you balance your time with family life?
  4. What is your advice for many junior bloggers out there?
  5. There are so many awards. How can the award system be improved or be more creative?
