Last month it was the Mystery Blogger Award Nomination.

Now its the Sunshine Blogger Award.  The beauty of this particular award is that we got two different nominations for the same award and both of them have asked questions which I will do justice to in this blog post.

Big thank you to Sim of Sims Jollies & Jaunts for this nomination and Bella of Just Bella!

Bella writes about Health, Beauty, Food, Lifestyle and Faith, she is also an amazing writer. please remember to visit her her blog. 

While Sim’ style of writing endeared me to her. With lots of witty and simplicity of language, Sim writes a great deal about her every life experience. Her magic muse turns normal everyday experiences to a pleasureable read. Please remember to visit her blog, you’ll love it.

ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS SIM ASKED:

  • What other bloggers inspire you? 

I had a major influencer in Eziaha of The F.A.B. Sister’s Blog, she runs a Christian blog. it will be practically to say I was introduced into the world of blogging  through her blog post. Asides Eziaha I have had a lot of other major influencers (Sisi Yemie, Bella Naija, Kachetee, CassieDavies, Deb writes, Sim to mention a few) and most sincerely, its like almost every blog I read is creative and inspiring and becomes I so open to learn, I always pick something from every blog.  

  • What made you want to start a blog?

I started a blog because I wanted to project my Initiative. Since I didn’t know how or the means to pay any online media to cover our activities, I figured it was a good way to tell our story. So for three years, I simply uploaded our activities and my random thoughts. But June last year, I took blogging a lot more seriously, as I realized it was an avenue to influence my world as well as share my perspective on life and even give others a platform.

  • What was your favourite cartoon as a kid?

It was Pinky and the Brain. My dad, my siblings and I always looked forward to watching it.

  • When you were a kid, what did you tell people when they asked you what you would be when you grew up

A Lawyer..

  • What has been the most rewarding thing for you with blogging?

The most rewarding thing at the moment is the fact that I can pour out my heart- inspire and influence as well as reach out to and have others reach out to me from all over the world read and interact with me. Its so rewarding.

  • What 2018 movie are you looking forward to seeing? 

None for now.

  • Would you rather read a books or see a movie?

That’s a hard choice but both though depending on how I feel. 

  • How did you choose your blog niche? 

Picking a niche was quite challenging but I decided I didn’t want some things, so I stood with what I wanted. I wanted to inspire people so that kinda formed my niche, its still evolving tho.

  • What’s the best gift you’ve gotten and from who?

That’s hard to pick oh. I receive gifts from people from time to time, there is hardly any month, I don’t receive gifts. Trust me to be excited on even the tiniest gift. God has graced me so I believe, or maybe its the influence God has helped me to have, so people don’t wait till my birthday to give me gifts.

  • How do you come up with blog posts and do you have a regular publishing schedule? 

My blog post are basically birth from inspiration. Once my muse inspires me, I write. I am however striving to have atleast one published post weekly cos I have a number of unpublished post.

What was the most embarrassing moment of your life?

#Thinking. I can’t remember. I stopped keeping records of negative occurrence.

  1. Hey Hephzibee! Congratulations once again, I really enjoyed reading, especially since you combined both nominations in one, it became a double treat! Keep up all the good things you do!

  2. Congrats!! 😊

    Our hunt for definitions and meanings are never ending. We always desire to provide something meaningful and yearn for the same.

    We build a fence around us and only look outside it to compare. But don’t realise the treasure we possess within.

    Unveiling such realisations, opening chests of such treasures,
    HemasSphere brings to you 1 of such series. Focus is always on realism.

    To the world where I belong and to me where the world resides.

    Listen; don’t just hear! – is the 1st of the series.

    Would be honoured by your visit and presence on my page and would be appreciate your views.

    I can be followed on
