So earlier this month, Damiloves nominated me for the ‘Blogger Recognition Award’. I woke up to a notification and I almost cried, literally. Nominations like this, the likes and comments are very encouraging. Tbh, I have a screenshot of some comments and whenever I’m having one of my days/phase , I just go back and read them and yes sometimes I cry. Getting so much love and support from people I don’t know and I might never meet literally makes my day. And so Dami, thank you very much for this. I luhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh you!
So this are her requirements for accepting this award
1.Write a post to show the award
This is it! Read up, then read down.
2. Acknowledge the blogger that nominated you
I received this during a mild period and what I saw was Oge.O words that will make you think so imagine how you made me feel. 5x! So thank you again for nominating.
Dami’s blog is amazing by the way, if you haven’t checked it out do so at http://www.damiloves.com
3. Give a brief story about how you started blogging.
HEADLINE: I have an unexplainable love affair with words.
From the Enid Blyton and Ladybird books, I had always wanted to write. About three years ago or more I decided to start a blog, but it took me about a year thinking to myself what will I write, what will I name it ,will people read it, will I be good enough , how will I write it. It was about this time that I found through twitter and began stalking Chiamak.O ‘s blog (yellowibogirl) ‘ Diary of An Igbo Girl’. Sometime in August/September 2013 I started ogesmemoirs
I haven’t been much of a consistent blogger ,but so far I think we’ve been good 🙂
4. Give 2 pieces of advice for new bloggers
Nobody can tell your story better than you do so just be yourself.When writing some articles it might feel like you’re letting yourself to be bare for people who don’t understand you to judge you. But you never know who’s story you’re telling, you never know who’s feelings you just helped put in words.
Be inspired by others. I can be here almost every day and only post once in two weeks or a month, because sometimes I want to read other blogs. I want to know what they feel. I have blogs that I literally stalk and have screenshots of your posts. Connect with other people, encourage them in the littlest ways.
