The Sparrow’s Golden Bloggerz Award and Her Nominees

Howdy!

This was meant to come in yesterday being a Tuesday, pardon the delay. The June blogging challenge was a success and again, thank you for reading my posts!

During this challenge, I was nominated for the The Golden Bloggerz Award by Cresentella and I am grateful that she did. I was unable to jump on it then but here we go today.

The Golden Bloggerz Award is an award made to motivate and reward all these amazing bloggers that work daily to serve their audience and they are worth more and deserving of this recognition. Their priority is to do their best to help their readers solve their problems & reach their goals!

It does feel good just to know that someone out there appreciates what you do and it is a good motivator.

Three Things About Me

1. I know Jesus Loves Me, I love him too

This is the core center of my being, in him I live move and have my being and honestly find myself lost anytime I wander off into my own zone.

2. I am a free spirit

I dance to my own music, celebrate every single small win and love my own company. I come off as a social being but when the lights go out and reality hits I am an introvert and really take time to trust people. My space is always guarded 24/7.

3. I love music and nature

I could be caught day dreaming of the sound of water gliding down rocks and birds chirping away at a distance anytime. I am generally a night owl but sometimes, all I need to have a good day’s start is that 6/7AM morning breeze feel on my skin and catching the sun pop out of the clouds. I treasure such moments. Music is my ever present companion!

My Nomination Question and Answers

1. What is your favorite thing about blogging?

I love writing as a passion so blogging comes off as something I enjoy doing. I love to inspire people and talk about subjects that would otherwise be avoided because they are uncomfortable, this is the platform I use for that purpose.

I also love the networking and interaction that comes with it. Otherwise I write to remember and add my voice to the thousands out there.

2. What is your biggest struggle as a blogger?

Sometimes I have an idea of what it is I want to write about but as soon as I open the page, the cursor keeps blinking at me for hours, my head goes blank!

I am also a perfectionist so where someone else would just hit publish and move on, I will be editing and reediting and doubting my image choice, titles etc…this ends up consuming more time than necessary.

3. Can you share some of your productivity tips?

I read so much and listen a lot to all kinds of things. I also pay attention to my surrounding, this is where most of my content comes from.

Other people are able to blog daily or more than once a week, I tried it and failed miserably and beat myself up all the time for failing. Later I discovered that I was trying to follow other peoples’ schedules and comparing so much, I opted to do me and to start with one blog a week (Tuesdays).

There is less pressure to perform now and I can ably attend to everything else that requires my full attention peacefully. We can call this starting small? Your choice.

4. What would you change about yourself if you could?

I believe change does not happen once and for all, almost every stage of life requires evolving in one way or another as we learn, unlearn and grow.

I also know that all I am and all that is within me was put intentionally to serve a purpose as we all are uniquely created.

13 For you created my inmost being;

    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

    your works are wonderful,

    I know that full well.

Psalms 139: 13-14

5. What is one thing you will never do again? Why?

We were working in a remote area in the East and that evening it had rained badly. We would be moving to a different district the next day so this was the only opportunity after work to visit that beautiful mountain I kept seeing from a distance in the area.

The only means of transport was a motor cycle (bodaboda), it was all fun and games till we reached the most slippery part of the road, one tire would be facing right and the other left.

I have never been this freaked out in my life, I asked to walk the rest of the journey despite assurances that the bike guy has used this road a couple of times. When you see my smile at the end though doesn’t seem like I was sweating at all.

  1. You are a natural sis. I know how time-consuming being a perfectionist can be. I think it’s not a bad thing at all, as long as it doesn’t become toxic.

    There is less pressure when the one you do works for you instead of copying other people.

    The trauma of having to walk on a muddy road. 😂😂😂😂glad you finally wore a smile👏👏
