My Liebster Award Nomination 2017


NDB is elated and thankful to have been nominated for the Liebster Awards 2017 few days back. This blog has received so much love and support from friends, family, readers and the online blogging community and I really want to appreciate everyone of you for coming this far with me.

And like I would say to those whose feedback have been very encouraging and uplifting, let's do more! 

There are levels to attain and there are heights to climb, there is so much more to do and yes there is enough space on the top for us all, the buttom is too crowded.

I want to also thank and sincerely appreciate Beth Megan, a Travel/Lifestyle Blogger and Jessica Philippe, a Lifestyle Blogger for the nomination, I would be answering both of their questions here.

The Liebstar Awards is an online award given to new bloggers by bloggers for engaging readers and creating valuable content. The major aim was to help discover new blogs, give them recognition, help them gain exposure for future awards and welcome them to the blog community. Once nominated, you are expected to nominate other upcoming blogs and have them answer different set of questions.

My nominations for amazing new blogs are:

Melanation

Temitoria

LaraTESHOLA

Jesus and Coffee

GirlieFix Blog

Below are the answers to the questions I was asked:

What's your favorite quote?

"The purpose of life is not just to be happy in your own little bubble, it is to be helpful, to be honorable, to be compassionate and kind, to have your life make some kind of difference that you have lived and lived very well." - Naomi Destiny

Is there one specific person that made you who you are today?

There is no one specific person but God made me who I am today and my beloved parents made it possible.

How/why did you get into blogging?

I started this blog back then in college during my undergraduate days but took it more seriously last year. Writing has always been my hobby since childhood and I got into blogging to become a better writer, it was a kind of strategy for me back then to learn and discover new ways of doing things.

Advice for new bloggers?

My advice would be to find your niche, have a vision for your blog, know the purpose and reason for you blogging, discover everything about blogging because there are hidden things. Blog about what you love the most because writing about what you enjoy makes it super easy and no matter the challenges, you can always overcome and keep going.

I had lots of challenges and setbacks when I started blogging but the major ones had to be combining blogging with school work because I was still in college back then, I didn't want my academics to suffer, so I wasn't consistent. Then I had no blogger friends and it was frustrating doing it all alone, I didn't have a digital camera also.

But with time, I learned from other professional bloggers and got better, I networked with several bloggers online, I read other blogs and left comments, I learned to use what I got, I believed in myself, I stopped focusing on getting friends to like what I do and focused on my work and crafts. I realized after these things - people and opportunities came around!

What is something not many people know about you?

Lol! That would be the fact that I get irritated when I see people carelessly living life but I stated most of the facts in this post 22 Random Facts About Me

Where do you see yourself in 1, 5 and 10 years?

In the next 1 year, I see myself learning and discovering new things, I see myself becoming the best version of myself, I see myself doing what I have always wanted to do.

In the next 5 years, I see myself established financially, I see myself spiritually grounded and burning for Jesus, I see myself inspiring young ones unto their gifts and passions, I see myself married to the most amazing man, I see myself doing exploits, fulfilling purpose and commanding uncommon results.

In the next 10 years, I see myself already doing great things and fulfilling destiny, I see my dreams turned realities, I see the plans God has for me manifesting fully, I see myself rich and financially buoyant, I see my works and sacrifices yielding profitably for me, I see myself doing more and inspiring others to do the same and even more.

What is your most proud moment in life thus far?

I really don't have a proud moment yet because there is still so much for me to do and this is just the beginning. Hopefully, one day I can look back and be proud of how far I have come.

Over to Jessica Philippe questions for me:

If you are famous, would you enjoy the limelight or miss your privacy?

I would definitely miss my privacy if I were famous but I believe I can still keep my private life private, I decide what others should see and not see about me.

If you could have chosen your own name, what would you have picked?

Lol! I really don't know but I love Zoe and Zion a lot!

Give to the blog post that you enjoyed writing the most!

I always enjoy writing all of my blog posts but I did enjoy writing these ones more:

Programming Your Mind For Success

How To Plan Your Week Intentionally

If you had a week left to live, what are some things you would do?

• Give out all I have and everything I possess

• Serve the LORD my God with every single strength left within me

• Spend time with my loved ones

What's the most important factor of every blog post?

That would be to create quality content, excellent images/designs that will suite the blog post.

If you had three wishes, what would they be?

• Become all that I was created for and do all that I was created to do!

• Own a digital camera - Canon EOS Rebel T6i or SonyA5100

• Study for MSc. in the UK!
