We won the Afrobloggers Awards for tourism and culture!!! 🎉🎉🎉
Above all, I would like to thank God, my friends, my family, my loved ones, the Afrobloggers team and of course you, the always supportive WordPress community.
Having ericotrips successfully emerge as the 2020 winner of the Afrobloggers Awards for Best Tourism and Culture Blog still feels like a dream come true and sometimes I want to pinch myself just to be sure. No joke… LoL.
The fact is that this victory is our victory. Yes!
The truth is, I wouldn’t be here without a lot of things moving.
From darling Wonani Dose of Wonani, who was kind enough to nominate ericotrips for this African-born award, to you, my incredible followers on social media and WordPress who assured me of their own votes. To everyone, I say one BIG THANKS!
Here is an excerpt from the congratulatory email I received:
“This award honors the work and dedication you put into your work. The year 2020 has not been a walk in the park and your efforts have not gone unrecognized. This is the spirit of Ubuntu and we celebrate you!
From my point of view, what is most fascinating about Afrobloggers is how they incredibly promote African bloggers in various niches through social media campaigns, exciting interviews, awards and recognitions.
Through this experience I had the opportunity to discover more of my brothers and sisters creating awesome content across the continent and if you would like to see more of the work done by Afrobloggers you can visit their about page Also.
Final Thoughts (My Two Kobos)
I think what is most important or fundamental in the quest for success or recognition is to have pure passion.
When you’re passionate, I personally believe you don’t rely too much on external factors like money, positive feedback, or motivation from family or friends.
If you love something enough, as Nike says, “Just do it!“Follow people who are making big waves in your niche/industry and be open to learning new ideas every day.
I mean, it’s okay when you fail, lose focus, or find consistency a little difficult, but whatever, dust yourself off and get ready to play ball again.
As we wrap up my mini TED talk *wink, I hope you will be the first person to believe in your amazing dreams and ambitions.
Congratulations on this new start, dear friend, and once again, thank you for helping ericotrips win the Afrobloggers awards.
