Yay! We won -Blogger of the year (Nigerian Writers Awards 2016)
January 26, 2018
So ,this happened yesterday ..I won the Nigerian Writers Award (NMA 2016) Blogger of the Year(Judges choice)..I am so elated about this award because, first of all,it’s an award.My first physical award.
I have been nominated over the years since I opened this blog in August 2011, but never won though.But I have always been elated to find my name on most blogger’s lists.Such a humbling experience.
Secondly,it’s an award which recognises writers.And you all know I love to write. Infact, writing is really what gave me the platform I have today and endeared many to this blog(Google Blogger’s diary Emeh Achanga or Miss Petite Nigeria to read some of my writeups)
Though there are times in every writer’s life when you experience writers block..But I know I would get over that real soon.
I always say this blog is something I started like a joke,out of frustration,pain as I needed an avenue to pour out my thoughts.Back then,I had no idea I would quit my full time job to settle as a blogger and love it..I had no idea about monetary gains.I honestly and still do it for the passion.Because..it is challenging .However, the sky is wide enough to harbour every dream,talent,and everyone.Just carve your own niche..and PRAY..
2016 is really a great year for me.A lot of blessings already and I know I’m going to share them with you all who are now family to me.
I am not going to sit here and say oh,I’m on my top form..I’m human and one thing I never do,is claim to be what I’m not.
Recently, I must confess, I have been suffering from terrible fatigue, loosing my connection with you my MPN family,my creative streak at an all time low,haven’t been able to concentrate to write ,don’t chat ,don’t even read messages,comments like I used to . I have even been tempted to get someone to assist me but because of the genuine love I have for blogging,I would rather break my bones and keep pushing.
However,I promise I will be back in form very soon..I will get my groove back..
Now,a very special thank you to each and everyone of you who reads this blog.We all know the comments do not reflect the number of readers here , but I smile knowing there are people who wake up daily and come here because they believe in me and love this blog.
Then to those who comment relentlessly,I can’t even begin to thank you enough for bringing life to Miss Petite Nigeria blog..You are AWESOME.You are REAL.You are smart,loyal..I appreciate you(In Khaled’s voice)
..so thankful to you all for the support
And oh, Febuary 26th is my birthday ..Go shorty..Not forgetting Feb 14th is Valentines day ..We should chat about that on another post later today .
Off to Church .Just took these *ugly Photos* on my way..No time to filter…See ya’ll when I get back
