Hey guys, how have you been since the last time we saw on the blog?
If you’ve been following my recent posts, you will know by now that it’s the blog 2-years anniversary and I’m pretty excited. I’ve been asking for your advice on how to celebrate this and I’m still waiting for your input (kindly drop a suggestion in the comment section before leaving 😀).
As part of the anniversary celebration, I’ve decided to share a post I’ve been stalling on, My second blog award nomination post. Want to know what the first blog award was about? No worries, just click here.
I was nominated for this award by my dear friend and sister-in-blogging, Chinomso Okoli a.k.a Shanyi of TheShanyiLife blog, thanks once again dear.
There are rules to accepting this award and they are quite simple.
1. Write a post acknowledging the award. Done, that’s why you are on this page 😉.
2. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you. Thanks, Chinomso, cheers to more…
3. Give a brief story of how and why you started blogging.
I started blogging because I have a desire to shine my little light in the darkness that pervades the world wide web. A desire to give back, reach out and add value. I started blogging using WordPress and so far, so good.
4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
My two cents to newbies on the blogging block are:
- Use social media well
- Try as much as you can to grow organically
- Try to connect/collaborate with fellow bloggers as much as you can and learn from them
- There are times when you might feel overwhelmed with blogging and the blogosphere, maybe because of lack of feedback from your readers, writers’ block or some other experiences. In such times, I’ll advise you to not give up, remind yourself of why you started and keep at it.
5. Nominate 15 deserving bloggers. For this award, I’ll be nominating
Abhijith of The Motivational Blog
Kozamsi of Kozdiaries blog
Amaka of Diary of a Lagos Girl
Makoglow of Makoglow blog
