Why did you start a blog?

Writing has always been my passion.  I always wanted to blog, I just didn’t know how to do it or where to start. WordPress has made it very easy for me to make my dream come true. I’m still learning and finding my way.

What inspires you to write? My life experiences and my thoughts inspire me to write. I want to inspire and encourage others to live the best life possible. Its my goal to promote self-growth and to empower the powerless.

How has blogging changed your life?

It has changed my life tremendously, it’s my baby. I want to nurture it and watch it grow. It’s something I am very proud of.

What is your favorite thing about your blog?                                                 

My favorite thing about my blog is my transparency. I am always going to be honest. It’s a no judgement zone. I feel like I am relatable. It’s a safe place to be.

Are there bloggers that inspire you in a certain way?

Life with Lane, her smile is magnetic and contagious. She is always happy.

If you could leave everything and move to another country, where would you go?

I would move to AFRICA. There is magic there. Really good people. Beautiful people. The love for family is beautiful, which sometimes can be loss here in America.

Who inspires you to be better?

Uchenna has changed my life. I want to do and be a better woman because of him. I am grateful for his wisdom. I view life differently because of him.

What songs do you love listening to?

I love listening to The Isley Brothers, The Ojays. I like listening to the oldies but goodies to relax and wind down, especially on Sundays.

What’s that one thing you can’t do without?

Sad to say, I can’t go without my iPhone. I am addicted to it. I sleep with it; I wake up in the middle of the night and check my notifications. I have it bad, Lol.

What has made you happy recently?

Being nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award made me happy, I have been passing through some things, so to see that someone appreciate my writing brought joy to my heart.

What advice would you give to aspiring bloggers?

The advice that I would give would be to always be honest andtransparent. I believe people like to read what they can relate to. They want to know the person behind what they are reading. Being able to feel what you are writing touches the soul.

  1. Aw, thank you for your kind nomination! You brightened my morning! The awards are a fun way for new bloggers to get out and meet other bloggers. I’ve been around for longer than I should admit to and have chosen to be an award free blog. Mostly just for the time commitment involved – as a part-time blogger, it’s truly hard to find enough time just to keep up with my own efforts. From the bottom of my heart – I truly appreciate hearing that my support of your blog made a difference in your blogging efforts. Please reach out and share the nomination you offered me to another blogger who deserves a chance to reach out and meet more bloggers! Hugs to you – and I wish you wild successes as you continue on this journey of blogging! Happy Blogging to you!! xx
