  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.

How my blog started…well, I wanted to raise awareness of mental health, especially of dissociative identity disorder, which is my primary diagnosis. My blog also focuses on therapy and on my psychotherapy sessions. But over time it has evolved and now includes daily living, recipes, quotes, etc. I had an old blog under another name but I deleted it and restarted using this one about 5 years ago.
My two pieces of advice would be to be real, and honest. Write from the heart. And write what you know! Oh and write often and be engaging! Respond to comments! Ok thats way more than two pieces, lol!

And I nominate the following bloggers for this award!
trina of its good to be crazy sometimes

You’ll be glad you did!

The creator of this award, Okoto Oke Enigma, whose blog site is www.okotoenigmasblog.com

WHY DID I CREATE THE AWARD?
I created the award because there are a lot of amazing blogs out there that havent been discovered, yet. And, most of these blogs deserve recognition. For that reason, I decided to create my own award; and nominate people who can also nominate others; and so on. This is one of the best ways to create a friendly community and build a link between bloggers in the blogosphere; as everyone gets nominated and they too can spread the fun by nominating more people for the award. Here are the Rules for the Award Nominees.

The mystery blogger award

I decided to call the award Mystery Blogger Award. Why? Because the meaning of my name, Enigma is mystery. So basically, its named after myself; the creator. Plus, I think its cool because there are so many blogs that are still a mystery to us; and when we get to know them, its divine! And we find friends where we least expect.

WHAT IS MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD?
Mystery Blogger Award is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

I won the award for woman of the year!

Guys,
I cannot believe it. I did it!I won woman of the year last night!

Two of us actually won, both of us got the exact same amount of nominations, so our consultant said she couldnt just pick one of us, so she gave both of us the award.

It was so amazing! We had to wear a tiara and a sash and we got pictures taken! We’re also going to be in the slimming world magazine and on their website.

We got certificates and a bunch of flowers each and a trophy each also. I already framed my certificate and hung it on my wall in my living room.

I’m so so excited! This is just such an honour! So thrilled to have won. It means a lot to me and makes all the hard work of the last couple of months so worth it.

Thanks to everyone for all of your ongoing support of my weight loss journey each week. You’ve all been amazing. I really really appreciate all of the support and love and good vibes and wishes from all of you.

I’m just basquing in the moment right now!
