Sunshine Blogger Award Nomination: So Thankful

January 1, 2018

Sudden Sunshine Nomination!

The day was proceeding normally on New Years’ Eve. Just Conchita trying to get used to being a new blogger: responding to comments, sending emails, planning blog posts and so on. She followed some blogs here and there that inspired her as well.

When. One of the blogs she followed mentioned her on a blog post!

Enough with the third person now. I want to thank Angel Lou for nominating me on her blog! It means so much to me to know that my blog is memorable to someone out there. I hope I inspire many more people in the future.

But just like me, Angel Lou’s blog will also inspire you. Guaranteed. Her posts are fun, inspiring, and are able to capture everyone’s attention.

Sunshine Blogger Award

  • An award given from blogger to another blogger who bring inspiration.


  1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated your blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions given by that blogger.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers and link their blogs in your post!
  4. List the rules for the Sunshine Blogger Awards and display the award logo on your blog or blog post.

1 What inspires you from blogging?

Many things inspire me to blog. But I think that the biggest push for me was the desire to inspire other people. I want to be there for all the muslim girls and women out there who don’t have much representation.

Not only that, I want to help everyone no matter what religion, gender, age, etc. I want to be here for elementary schoolers, middle-schoolers going into high-school, high-schoolers, and everything above and below.

My full explanation can be read here.

2 Do you blog because you can earn money from it or just a habit?

Right now, it’s just because blogging is my passion. The possibility that someone out there in the world reads my blog and maybe is comforted or inspired by my words is enough for me.

3 Do you honestly read the blogs from people you followed?

Yes. I am still very new and have yet to explore more blogs to read. But, the few I have followed, I have made some time to read posts from each.

4 Were there a times that you don’t know what else to write on your blog?

No, nothing like that. I always want to write. I know what topic I want to write about but what stops me is the thought of how to actually start writing it.

5 Do you believe in incarnation?

No. Pretty direct there but that’s my view.

6 Would you like to visit Mindanao regardless of the warning that there are terrorists here?

In the first place, I am not much of an island or beach girl. So that would’ve stopped me right there. In the case of terrorists, isn’t it safer to just stay away until everything seems to have calmed down?

7 If you were a scientist, who would you like to be?

A chemist. Experimenting with different chemicals and watching reactions sounds fun, right?

8 What can you say about people who wait patiently?

They’re one of the best people to exist, being patient is easier to be said than done. People out there who are patient have the strength to stay calm, collected, and at peace even in the most irritating or frustrating situations. And that’s extremely laudable.

9 Who came out first, egg or chicken? Hahha

The egg came first. It probably dropped down from the sky.

10 Where do you want to be 5 years from now?

5 years…I’d be twenty and still in college in Canada (haha). I don’t really know how things will be in 5 years but I only hope that the Conchita in 5 years will be happy.

Always, I dream to have been able to go on fun trips with my friends to amusement parks. I hope I will be able to spend a lot of time with my family as well- made them proud too. At twenty, I want to just be free, happy, and proud of where I am at that point of my life.

11 How many times a week you post a blog?

I hope to fulfill my goal of posting at least 3 times a week.


Here are the blogs that have inspired me thus far:

1 Naturalee Ashlee

2 A Booknerd Travels

3 Terrestrial Aesthetics

4 A Black Girl Blogging

5 Bingaling Abroad

6 Amanda’s Write Life

7 Living 4 Me…Unapologetically

8 Shamylah Zimuto

9 Victoria Life on Camera

10 The Write Direction

11 With Love, Leena

Note: Unlike the first ten, the eleventh blog is a pretty big blog but since I really love this blog I want to just appreciate it.

My questions for them:

  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. If you had to describe your blog in or with 5 words, what would they be?
  3. What are you Top 3 blogging goals as of now?
  4. In your opinion, what type of person is the best type of people? (ie. caring person)
  5. Have you traveled? Which place was the most memorable for you?
  6. If your blog has some sort of “aesthetic” or color scheme, explain why it is that way.
  7. When do you like writing your blog posts? 
  8. What are your thoughts looking back to when you first started your blog?
  9. How long has it been with your blog?
  10. What keeps you writing?
  11. What are the Top 3 ways you want to improve yourself?

Last note, Happy New Year everyone!

I hope this new year will be good to all of you.
