I only started blogging for a few months and I must say it has been an amazing journey . Getting to know and read from so many people around the world. I want to say thank you to gurru my dear friend who nominated me for the blogger recognition award.
Please visit her blog, she uses her voice as a weapon for changing . speaking up against ill practices that has been done to women and also inspires people with her write ups.
Please don’t fail to check out her blog for its amazing
Why it is important?
The awards and recognitions like this are a great way of building up a blogging community and (hushshsh not illegal but a very smart way of generating back links). This way budding blogger not only get encouragement but connections and yes back links for each other.
Although new blogs do not have a great domain authority so getting a back link from them may not benefit you immediately, but if you are nominating a blog you truly have your confidence in and they actually make it big say in a year or so, you will have a back link from a website with authoritative website.
So if you do get nominated for such an award take your time to write a blog post, show gratitude to the one who nominated you and give them a backlink, and nominate 10 to 15 budding bloggers you feel are doing a good job.
Even if 5 out of those were smart enough to get the logic behind such post they will write a post giving you a backlink.
Imagine if even 2 out of those five made it big in a year, you will have a backlink from a great website without doing much hard work. Yeah it is a bit out there, but totally worth a shot and hey, who doesn’t likes a flashing trophy on the home page?
It will also help you build some really helpful connections in the blogging world. Networking is very important in every industry to grow but it is even more important in blogging industry. So, yeah, Do It!

I have always been inquisitive since I was kid,wanted to know more and all . I went to college at age 15, I was naive but intelligent . My smartness was only seen when it comes to books and speech but I wasn’t taught how to handle the real world .
The world of boys ,girls, friends ,drugs and so many . I lost my voice in the process because I wanted to be accepted by men ,to be loved . I listened to bad advises which lead me to doing so many things I never imagined I could do .
But I came about of it all and I found my voice back. I went through a journey of self realization. I discovered I was worth more than I could ever imagine and since then I refused on becoming silent .
Blogging has given me a platform to talk ,to write and air my opinion to the world . I stand to say that whatever I am today was because I choose to be it and you can also choose to be whatever you want to be .
I am so passionate about helping people find their voice and self worth . To encourage people to be the best and embrace their peculiarities . I am a proud feminist and I will never be silenced . I am a creator , I use my voice to create a world of happiness and just.
I always say this ; don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t be ,what you can’t do , what you should be . no one determines your fate ,God does and God has already given us an excellent spirit to manifest and become great . you are great , you are the best , never settle for less . Stand for what you believe in
