Sunshine Blogger Award

Blogger awards are a fantastic way to get to know other bloggers. I was nominated by Abena at Ghanaian Emprezz for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Thanks, Abena.Sunshine-Award

What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?
The Sunshine Blogger Award is a way for bloggers to get to know each other and a way for readers to know a little more about me.

To accept the Sunshine Award, I have to:

  • Acknowledge the nominating blogger with a link to the website. Thank you, Abena!
  • Share 11 random facts about myself by answering the questions the nominating blogger has created for me.
  • List 11 bloggers I believe deserve some recognition and a little blogging love! (I can’t nominate the blogger who nominated me.)
  • Let the 11 bloggers know I nominated them.
  • Post 11 questions for the bloggers I nominate to answer

My answers to Ghanaian Emprezz’s questions

[1] How did you come up with your blog name? I don’t like people invading my personal space, especially touching my hair without permission. I also thought it was clever and the URL was free at the time.

[2] Do you have a favorite quote? I have a few. Here’s one. “If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” – Thomas A. Edison

[3] What is your favorite hobby besides blogging? I like reading and researching things. If you didn’t know, I’m a nerd. It’s okay because nerds rule the world. 🙂

[4] If you could live anywhere in the world other than where you currently live, where would it be? Either Paris or Tokyo.

[5] Are you a morning person or night owl? Morning person.

[6] Favorite drink? I don’t really have one but these days I’m enjoying coffee.

[7] Favorite food? I don’t really have a favorite food but I’ve been craving akara these days.

[8] If you could be a character from a book, who would it be? My favorite book in secondary school was “The Autobiography of Malcolm X“. I thought Malcolm was so interesting. I would like to see the world through his eyes.

[9] What celebrity would you most like to meet? Jon Hamm (a.k.a Don Draper). He seems like a very interesting person.

[10] One gadget you can’t live without? My phone (Samsung Galaxy S4). I’m usually on my phone reading blogs and tweets.

[11] Who inspires you the most? This question is very difficult to answer because I get inspiration from so many people, places, and things.
