African and Proud’s Set of Questions for me:

1. What inspires you to write? 

2. What is your greatest fear as a blogger? 

3. Where do you see yourself 5 years from now in the blogosphere community? 

4. Have you ever had to choose between blogging any other profession, if yes, what was your choice and how did you feel after the decision? 

5. How supportive are friends and family to you in this path you have chosen? 

My Answers:

1. I draw inspiration from my day to day experiences. I want to be able to tell stories from my surroundings, what is happening within and without me. 

2. I fear that one day people might find watching an alternative to reading and completely ignore the art that goes into writing. 

3. Developing better content in every context. I want to be able to use everything within my reach to better myself in what I produce. 

4. I wouldn’t really say I’ve had to choose between blogging any any other profession, what I would say is I prioritise it over my other interests. I’m an anxious person and would not manage to do a single other thing if I am not done with my writing. I cancel all other plans or postpone them until my post is up. That is how seriously I take it.

5. My friends are very supportive, they read, recommend, correct my mistakes, encourage me to do better. I am not sure what I would do without them (in the writing sphere that is). 

My family on the other hand, ahem (clears throat).. I am not sure what to say, I DON’T share my posts with them anymore. Reason? We were in the car one day and an aunt asked to see the articles I always claimed I was writing. I proudly passed on my phone after opening the application. She sifted through the posts until she came unto one. What Is Your Sexual Orientation? was the title. I saw her eyes go wide in that disapproving, shocked kinda way. She didn’t say a word but from her reaction that day, I realized there was no way I would let them see what I was writing. In her mind she had already formed a negative impression yet she had only seen the title and the featured image. That was the endpoint, I haven’t been giving them access to my work since.
