Questions from Strictly 4c:

What has been your most rewarding experience as a blogger?

My most rewarding experience has been getting positive feedback from friends and family. 

What keeps you motivated to write?

I really love sharing my knowledge about natural hair.  Also, I trying to figure out what is the purpose of my life, so I challenged myself to start this blog as a first step to discovering my purpose.

What’s your top New Year’s resolution (assuming you have more than one)?

This year I plan to take more courageous steps towards things I enjoy.

What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?

My favorite thing to do during free time depends how much free time I have or how I feel.  I tend to watch TV shows online or listen to podcasts.  

If you were to start a blog about a topic you’re not currently writing about, what would the topic be?

I would write about things people of color deal with in the corporate world to ensure I’m not crazy.

What’s your favorite music genre?

I am not sure if I have a favorite genre.  I really like songs that have eclectic sounds with a foundation from soul, hip hop, R&B, or Jazz.

What city do you rep?

I live in Michigan.  To be specific, I have lived in MANY cities surrounding Detroit.  I only lived in Detroit at time I can’t remember.  I’m proud of Detroit, but I will not lie and say I’m from there or grew up there.  Detroiters don’t take that kind of behavior lightly.

What’s your favorite restaurant, and their must-try dish?

Mitchell’s Fish Market in Livonia, Michigan is always delicious.  There menu changes so I try whatever sounds good.

The Official Rules of the Liebster Award 2017:

Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. Try to include a little promotion for the person who nominated you. They will thank you for it and those who you nominate will also help you out as well.

Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
Write a 150-300 word post about your favorite blog that is not your own. Explain why you like the blog, provide links.

Provide 10 random facts about yourself. (This year I’m making this optional. If you wish to engage with your readers it’s a great idea to include random facts about you.)
Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 200 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)

List these rules in your post. Once you have written and published it, you then have to: Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post or mine if you don’t have all the information so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)

Don’t forget to create 10 questions for them to answer. Notify your nominees and provide a link to your post so that they’ll know what to do. Once you’re done, come back here and comment with the link to your post so others (and me) can check out your answers!
