Need Some Sunshine?

Hello beautiful people!

So I’ve received another bloggers award!



Thank you so much thenakedwriter  for this award and for recognizing my blog. I am honored that my efforts in the blogosphere are appreciated! I don’t tell you enough how much I love the honesty and authenticity of your posts.

What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?

The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award that’s given to bloggers who make us smile, entertain us, uplift us, or make content that we enjoy. It’s an award that’s used to acknowledge someone’s contributions as a blogger.

Sunshine Blogger Award Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs and write them 11 new questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award in your post.

Here are the questions Mac thenakedwriter asked me & my answers:

  • Why did you start blogging?

I started this blog as a way to share my thoughts, my talents & gifts with the world. I’ve always kept journals/diaries and I saw this blog as my online journal. My site address used to be “Welcome to my world!” *cringe* but I saw my blog as my space, my own little world where I could share whatever was on my mind. My first post ever, Bittersweet was actually about my own relationship which had turned sour.

  •   What are your hopes for your blog? 

As I mentioned in my previous post (It’s Me, Again + Get to know me Tag), I truly hope that in this hectic world, this blog will bring light, hope and encouragement to whoever comes across it. I hope that it would not only be about the numbers, but about every individual who reads my posts. I also hope that this blog would birth a community of encouragers, so that each of us can make the world a better place for the next person.

  • What’s something that you’d like to blog about, but haven’t done yet? 

My personal life. I have so many stories embedded in me that I’d like to share, which I know people can relate to and would benefit from buuuut…. I feel like I’m not there yet. I mostly don’t have enough time on my hands to dig deep for these stories (or maybe I’m just chickening out of it) but I’m hoping soon, I would be able to share the parts of my life which I’ve covered up for so long. Hey thenakedwriter! You inspire me so much.

  • What are you working on outside of blogging?

I’m trying to get my life y’all. + I’m still trying to figure out how to pause this whole adulting thing lol…

  • Are there any dreams you’ve had for many years?

So many. And I’m watching them come true one after the other. Dreams do come true you guys.

  • What’s your favorite thing about where you currently live?

The location! It’s so easy to get to any other part of town from where I live & all the shortcuts are easily accessible as well. On the plus side, work & church are close by.

  • What is the most adventurous thing you’ve done?

Moving to Tamale in the Northern region of Ghana by myself when I was 22 and living there for about a year on my own. This was such a big deal for me, having lived my whole life in the south. It was also a dream come true as I had always wanted such an adventure of going off on my own to start life in a totally new place where I knew no one. Most people I told didn’t want me to go but I went anyway, and I enjoyed my stay there so much that I didn’t really want to come back.

  • What is your most and least favorite things about blogging?

Favorite thing? That these words of ours which we share in this blogosphere brings us so close to many people all over the world whom we would never meet under normal circumstances. That, for me is so amazing!

Least favorite thing? There seem to be so many blogger standards, rules, do’s & don’ts  which can be overwhelming sometimes, but I’m just going to keep following my spirit and see where & how this goes.

  • What kind of content do you want to see more of?

Definitely more encouraging, honest and authentic content.

  • What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned as a blogger?

Be consistent & stay true to your cause.

  1. Yyyaaayyyy!!!! Congratulations! Hey Sharon! So, what are some other towns in the north? I spent a few weeks at a town in the north and can not remember the name for the life of me! I can’t remember if I’ve been to Tamale … but definitely to Kumasi and Cape Coast!

    Your favorite thing about blogging is one of mine too!!! Meeting people from around the globe that I probably wouldn’t otherwise!

    Big Hugs to you and the growth of your blog!!!!
