My Best Christmas Gifts: The Inventive Blogger Award and The Blog Of The year 2013 Award…

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpegdoncharisma-org-the-inventive-blogger-award (1)

There are all sorts of Christmas gifts. Getting awards as a blogger is indeed a special one because it gives me the opportunity to share it with all the wonderful people from 100 countries (as at the time of doing this post) across the world who have taken out time and resources to visit, read, comment, follow, reblog and make useful criticisms of my blog/posts. I really appreciate you all 🙂 Thus, I am dedicating my gifts/awards, The Inventive Blogger Award and The Blog Of The year 2013 Award to you all. Thanks a lot for the inspiration and encouragement 🙂

Thus, my friend DON CHARISMA, has, indeed, given me my most appreciated Christmas gifts. Thanks a lot Don. I really appreciate the gifts and wonderful/thoughtful gesture 🙂

As part of the instructions for accepting The Inventive Blogger Award, I am supposed to state 5 things I enjoy about blogging. Here I go….

1. It has provided me a platform to do what I have wanted to do for long, and that is to write for a large audience, in this case, using an e-magazine

2. My blog/posts have been a source of blessing (in countless ways) to its visitors.

3. People now know me in 100 countries (as at the time of doing this post) 🙂 This is quite interesting to 🙂 It further portrays the power of the internet.

4. I have made a lot of friends and come across a lot of people from diverse background, one of which is a gentleman, DON CHARISMA, who have deemed me fit to be awarded this Christmas gifts of THE INVENTIVE BLOGGER AWARD and THE BLOG OF THE YEAR 2013 AWARD 🙂

5. For me, writing over 150 posts (so far) has been a very good mental exercise. You can only understand by joining us in blogging 🙂

Yet Another Bouquet Of Awards…SEVEN Awards !!!

As soon as I click “publish” using my laptop or phone, I always wish my posts well 🙂 I do so because all my posts are “posts with a mission” – a mission to achieve something in the life of my blog visitors who end up reading them. It usually gladdens my heart when my posts are appreciated with kind words or words which clearly show that the mission of my posts were actually accomplished.

No doubt, these wonderful visitors are the reason behind a post such as this accepting SEVEN awards, all seem to be saying : “Michael, welldone.”  I really humbled by this recognition. I am really encouraged and  inspired to freely give more of what I have freely received from God. And I promise to share more posts that will add value to the life of my posts readers.

TANUMOY, my good friend gave me a “small gift” of FIVE AWARDS nominations 🙂 ; SHAUN, another good friend of mine added one more. My pretty friend, LIDIYA added one more to make the number of awards a perfect number – incidentally my favourite number.

Sincerely, this is probably the first time I am slow in typing because of my being short of words. I am really humbled my the number of awards. Thanks a lot TANUMOY, SHAUN and LIDIYA. God bless you all real good for these beautiful gifts…..

CONGRATULATIONS dear friends 🙂

One-Of-A-Kind Award….A Bouquet Of Awards !!!

wordpressfamilyaward_2

One of the best things that blogging has brought to me, is meeting great and very intelligent individuals spread across the world. It is a great privilege therefore, for me to be nominated with a “bouquet” of FOUR AWARDS, by one of such great minds, named Tanumoy. I chose to call him the guy with the ‘Gift of Words”, because he is indeed gifted with words. A visit to his blog will prove that this is not an exaggeration. Thanks a lot to my friend for this uncommon nomination. However, please forgive me for not picking the Dragon’s Loyalty award. I have a strong phobia for dragons 🙂 God bless you real good.

I cannot forget where my abilities come from. Blessed be the name of the Lord for His grace and favour over me, without which I would have been like a beautiful flower in a garden that was never noticed. Thanks also to all friends of my blog for all your contribution to making my blog what it is today. God bless you all.
