Here are the 10 questions I answered provided by the second person who nominated me, NaturallyBlack.
1) What made you decide that you should write a blog? I wanted to write my account of my natural hair journey amongst other things. Blogging is like a public time capsule. I really enjoy going back and reading early posts, it takes me back.
2) What inspires you to write for it? I love receiving comments and personal responses to what I post. Every single one of us looks at life through a different lens and I like seeing what others add to my posts. If it makes me think, laugh or inspire me to find out more I love you for it!
3) What’s your greatest fear? Spending my life looking down and missing everything. And spiders.
4) If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Eeek! I love food and I’ll get tired of one thing… but I would say pizza… with lots of different toppings every time.
5) Riddle: Give me food and I’ll live, Give me water I’ll die. What am I? (Guess first) My first guess was a Mogwai (Gremlins). I don’t know!! [Ok I looked it up and it says fire…]
6) Why did you choose WordPress to start your blog? In general I liked the format.
7) How long have you been blogging? Since May 2012.
8) If there was one thing you could change about yourself, what would it be? I’ll take 2 more inches please. 5’7 sounds like a great height! haha
9) What do you want to do as a profession? (Or what do you currently do as your profession?) My background is in communications.
