WHAT IS BLOGGERS LIEBSTER AWARD?
What Is Liebster Award?
Liebster Award is a form of appreciation that bloggers give to their fellow bloggers, the award is mostly intended to help new bloggers get discovered and to make them feel appreciated, motivated and have the courage to keep writing good content. The word Liebster is a German word meaning dearest or I will say favorite. I find this a great way to get noticed. Now, for me to be writing this it means that I was nominated and I have to complete the task. I would like to give a big thank you to Emanwrites for nominating my blog, it means a lot to me. I will have to share with you answers to the questions I was asked, and most of all the people I managed to nominate too.
Some of the questions that I was asked by Emanwrites:
1. What has been the hardest part of your online content journey so far? What have you learned from it?
The hardest part has been finding a rhythm to post consistently. It’s not easy as I’m working full-time. What I’ve learned, however, is that picking a specific day and dedicating a few hours to writing keeps me in check.
2. If you could be a superhero, who would you be and why?
I admire many heroes and heroines-fictional or not-that motivate and inspire me in life. Many at times, we look up to other people and forget that we too can be our own heroes. There we go… I am my own hero because I can withstand trials in life and surpass them, making me stronger with each encounter. I also have a kind heart and an understanding personality, which has softened my view on humanity and personal relationships in general 😉
3. Give a tip to other bloggers or potential blog starters.
Do a lot of research before embarking on this journey. Find a style of blogging that suits you and stay true to your brand. Be consistent in writing and get yourself out there. Lastly, network as much as possible… doors will eventually open for you.
4. What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
Sleeping in a luxurious tent in the wild. This happened in Kenya, where I went for a safari at the Maasai Mara National Reserve (an area of preserved savannah wilderness in southwestern Kenya, along with Tanzanian border). The sound of the bush as you fall asleep is otherworldly. It was a magical experience seeing all the wild animals, especially the big 5; Lion, Leopard, Rhinoceros, elephants, and Cape Buffalo.
5. Being a blogger/vlogger, any tip on how to get free products and gifts from different brands?
I’m getting to learn how to partner up with brands. What I’ve noticed is that a lot of brands need to see your consistency with your audience and your own brand/ your content. Have your portfolio ready before approaching a brand for free products and gifts. Let them know why you’re passionate about their products, and that you’d like your audience to learn about them/experience their services. Be nice and respectful while working with them and the partnership may turn out to be long-term.
6. If you win a lottery, what would be the first thing you’d buy?
I would invest in my brand. My vision is to go beyond my comfort zone and capture audiences all over the world. The money would go into getting a small team and purchasing a camera and video pieces of equipment. This would help elevate my brand.
7. How and where do you promote your work/ blog?
On my social media account pages and blogger association platforms. I’ve also printed business cards which I hand out to people during networking events.
8. What brings you the most joy and happiness?
Growth. I set out my plans and goals in life which I set out to achieve. When I achieve them, I get a sense of accomplishment, knowing my hard work paid off. This makes me ecstatic!
9. What tip will you give on how to collaborate with different brands and stuff?
Grow your audience by being consistent with your brand. Once achieve this, look for brands that resonate with you as a person and approach them through customised emails/messages and send them to the right people. Lastly, network network network! You never know who you might come across.
10. What advice will you give for the improvement of my blog “emanwrites”?
Your content is superb and so relatable Eman! All I can say is keep writing and continue blessing the world with your words and experiences. The only thing I’d add is to push your blog on various social media platforms and continue collaborating with other bloggers and brands in order to grow your audience. Good job girl!
