Thank you.


Ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome! Welcome!! Welcome!!!

I am gladdened that you have decided to join me today on the blog. Thank you for stopping by.

Get ready because today we will be talking about blog awards.

Blog awards are posts based on questions asked by fellow bloggers and it is a great way for the readers to get to know more about the author of the blog. It is indeed an exciting thing to get nominated.

Now that you know let’s get this ball rolling.

First, I need to make a confession. Natural muse nominated me a while ago but you know as always life got busy and I am truly sorry about that. (I hope she accepts my apologies). When I saw Oma’s nomination I knew I had to get my head in the game and do the award thing before I get “denominated”! (that’s if there is anything like that).

Since this is two nominations in one I’ll try my best to make it simple and straight to the point.

  • Dear Natural Muse, thank you for nominating me. I am inspired by your authenticity and this nomination means so much to me. 🙂

Mention the creator of the award and link their blog 

  • According to Natural Muse, “Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; they do it with so much love and passion. –  Okoto Enigma Thank you for creating this award! –

Tell your readers 3 things about yourself 

  • I enjoy solitude better than an extrovert should.
  • I am interested in too many things at a time that makes me have head knowledge in more things than necessary. Also, it keeps my brain running on high power too many times.
  • I am obsessed with politics. Although, I don’t know enough history to back up my obsession.

You have to nominate 10 – 20 people

  • Since it is a two – in – one award post I will compile the nomination list down below

Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.

Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question.

Questions from Natural Muse 

  1. If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
    1. Nigeria, home is where the heart belongs
  2. If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be? 
    1. My Bible
    2. Toothbrush
    3. Toothpaste
    4. A functioning tap
    5. An inexhaustible pen
  3. What was one of the most defining moments in life? 
    1. When I had to start a new chapter of my life in a very different environment than I had known.
  4. What is your favorite music?

  5. What was your most embarrassing moment? 
    1. That one time when my friends were trying to help me overcome my fear of large water bodies by throwing me into the water. Believe me, there is nothing funny about seeing a young adult shouting and screaming like a crazy person. Did I forget to mention that there were people present at that beach that I was trying to impress? O boy, that was an embarrassment of the year!
