Zenith wishes you a Happy Christmas and so do I

So Zenith Bank officially launched their Christmas lights at Adetokunbo Ademola/Ajose Adeogun to see the sight.

It was a delicate decoration of lights all around the fences and of the Six reindeer and the three photos...

This week: Picmonkey

Last week I got Udemy certified.
I became certified

Here's my certificate:


I also went for a United Nations seminar on Woman Entrepreneur. There were so many amazing women there, both speakers and attendees. Unfortunately I don't have a selfie. Here's a picture of the event. I think there were over 300 women present.

Guest Speakers: Three of them 

Women at the Women Entrepreneurs Day

I work as a social media manager. I am a new media person and I manage this site here.
It is currently under constructions, drats that you can't see it now!

There's also this group on Facebook that speaks to the woman of worth inside you. I don't care how many people have put you down, talked you down or tried to bury you in nasty words, God thinks that you are a woman of worth and on this site you will meet spirit-filled women of grace who know what it is to have opposition but still rise above it and win and become successful women in their careers and successful wives and mothers and are committed to building the next generation. They are by no means perfect but are committed to building themselves and other women up. Who better to build you up than someone who has built themselves up also. They are here.

So here's my selfie, I designed it on Picmonkey. That is the new tool I learned for the week.

Yay! I am looking professional already and I like it. 
I love what I am doing presently.

I am four days late but what the heck!

I planned to start this on the 3rd of November
What can I say? Work has been hectic!

So I just got this idea, I could just answer the questions instead of blogging about the hint that was given. How about that?

Monday, November 3
Write about an amazing imaginary brand or organization you'd love to work with. What would their pitch to you look like? What would your post say?

I would love to work with a company where all they do is advertising and branding and all day all you have to do is create and you have team mates and even though they are creative too, we all get along and so get to create good awesome work so that there is no politics about if you are doing good work because no one is trying to sabotage you. (pipe dream, is there such a thing as never having opposition? Ha ha ha)

What is your favorite holiday memory? (And yes, you can pick any holiday, including your birthday.)

My favorite holiday is the month we spent in Benin. It was pretty rural and we were pretty much the New Yorkers visiting a place like Pennsylvania but it was all a new experience for us meeting different kinds of people who think we eat cotton candy for breakfast instead of regular Akara and Ogi or bread and tea.

Do you feel you have found your voice on your blog? What techniques have you tried to develop your voice in your writing? What are some characteristics of your personality in your writing?

Yes I have found my voice even though I don't do much writing on my novel blog with the so called voice. I am always creating one campaign or the other and striving for excellence even though I doubt I have achieved it in the last few months. The great thing about it is that I have learned so many new things and seen processes and people and uggghrrr!

My personality in writing is pretty authentic. I write what the people are projecting and hardly do I write the image without pointing out that it is an image. I had to start a private blog to bring out my real voice and then now I can switch to professional voice (impersonal) and back to my real voice, the down to earth one. I still write better in my real polite voice not the one that doesn't suffer fools gladly. I practice the fruit of the Spirit which is patience.

Do you consider yourself a "professional" blogger? Why or why not? What does that mean to you?

I have been blogging since 2008 and yes, I didn't always write as a professional but rather as a blog but now that I work 24 hours including Saturday and Sunday (the weekends is mainly monitoring and analytics) and I have nearly completed my Udemy Courses, yes I am a professional blogger. As soon as I am done with the course, you will see my certificate. (I am also doing the Hoot suite one). I am a social media manager and blog management is one of the things that I do on my portfolio. I have 6 years of professional blogging under my belt. I have written for websites, for magazines, I contribute  in several magazines regularly and work on devotions, I am a professional blogger with a huge portfolio.

Where is the one place you would never want to go on vacation that other people seem to love? 
People love America a lot, I am not crazy about it. People love London too, I can visit but it is not my favorite vacation spot. My favourite vacation spot is the Bahamas. I want to visit that country again and again and again. I don't know why I love it but that is my choice; very cool island.
