Present Jam: Mad over you by RUNTOWN
I was reading blog posts from one of my favourite blogger one night, when I thought ‘why not interview a blogger every month?’. Then I thought I’d start next year, but then again, why wait?. So yeah, My blogger of the month begins…
My first blogger is Funke, when she started her blog sometime in April I was immediately fascinated I had wanted to start my blog about that time (but I didn’t, because I was waiting for the ‘right time’ that never came). The major thing that caught my attention was the name TUTUSDIARY, I thought the blog would have juicy contents knowing it will reveal her dairy… she will write about her experiences I liked the idea. So lets meet Funke
Its been a minute, I know… I missed you guys too.
- What is your name and age?
My name is Bada Adefunke (Tutu geh) and I am 21 years old and counting *grinning*
2. Tell us a little about your blog and how old it is?
My blog Tutus diary is my safe zone on the net where I share all about my discoveries and adventures in life. In my diary, I pen down everyday happenings, my daily interactions with people, my faith, my career path, fashion and things that excite me. You should visit the blog to check it out *grinning*. And the blog is 8 months old *yaaay*.
3. How did you first get into blogging?
I started blogging officially April 2016, but I created the blog January 2016. Before then, I had conceived the idea but never birthed it because I was scared of not being consistent. I closed my eyes to all the if’s and but’s and here I am today.
4. Who has impacted you most in your blogging journey and how?
This will be Sisi of Sisi Yemmie blog. She is a lifestyle blogger/ Vlogger who documents all about her life living in Lagos, Nigeria. I love love watching her vlogs just because I can relate to them and it helps me not to lose my touch with home. And my visit to her blog keeps me reeling with ideas.
5. What is the most challenging moment in your blogging journey so far?
When I had to relocate from Nigeria to the US and I still had to churn out content with big relevance to people in Nigeria, because most of my blog views are from people in Nigeria. I had to stop blogging for a while, try to adjust to the weather and all, create more than enough blog draft and get back to my safe zone
6. What has your blogging experience taught you?
It has taught me to read more, stop procrastinating, interact more with people, and be social.
7. What else do you do other than blogging?
I was a Business Development Officer/ Content creation specialist in a technology company where I worked 8am-5pm every other weekdays, but right now am just a work in progress working here and there till I take the next step.
8. Who is your style icon and why?
I don’t think I have one in particular but on Instagram I love Ella Mo because she stays classy and fashionable at an affordable price and she monetizes on her page big time.
9. What is your favorite fashion brand and why?
I actually don’t have a favorite but I love high street fashion brands; which means I am in love with stores that offer stylish and trendy clothing for affordable prices. From Rue 21, H&M, River Island, Primark, Asos, Forever 21, New Look etc. Who wants to break the bank to look good when I can look good for less? Not me.
10. Where can we find you on social media?
I am on Instagram and twitter @tutu_geh, on facebook: Adefunke Alice Bada and Snapchat: @ms_bee16. Let’s connect on there guys!!!
That is it guys, Funke my blogger of the month!
I should mention this, Funke was so pleasant to chat with, she gave me a reason to believe that the blogger’s community is a nice and friendly place to be in. I now have more confidence to chat up other bloggers. Thank you Funke!!
Till the next blog post and I hope that will be pretty soon. xx
