Of #BlogIndabaWednesdays: LeoMuzivoreva

Wednesdays are #BlogIndabaWednesdays where we pick on a blogger to crush on and hype up over the interwebs because blogging means community

And today’s creative crush is TheLeoNationZW  and his blog LeoMuzivoreva.WordPress.com 

Leo’s blog is a land of non-fictional chronicles, debacles and anecdotes on life as an African.  Leo says that he writes for everyone as he thinks of himself as a creative-non fiction writer, writing about real life events with a bit of creativity.

On how his blog came about he says:

I have always had a keen interest for writing. Having started by freelancing for my hometown weekly. So blogging is a passion- I mean who wouldn’t want a space to write without an editorial policy?

You can tell browsing through his posts he has a thing about history, and reads from quite an shall we say interesting and varied spectrum dropping interesting quotes. 

One of the posts I found highly informative was when he explained the Icelandic surnames during the World Cup craze, I am not a soccer enthusiast but this post gave me something to talk about and appear like a man about the world  

Did you know?? In Iceland the use of surnames is forbidden by a law, which passed in 1925. Mind boggling, Right?

For those wondering if they should let their family read their blog:

Part of my family does read… My brother, my cousin and her mother- those are the 3 who actually read and give feedback…

I like how his posts always start being about something else and then suddenly switch up into something out of a history class, I would guess man was a history teacher, like this post here which starts on being about summer in Capetown moves to English Premiership break then Olympics in South America and then the black power salute

The Black Power Salute

Dont take my word for it got to his blog read for your self LeoMuzivoreva

Of #BlogIndabaWednesdays: EthneticMe

And its a Wednesday!!!!! So this and every Wednesday in one of my blogging circles Blog Indaba The meeting place we pick one blogger to crush on and hype them up all over the interwebs because blogging means community^_^

Blog Indaba

creative crush

And today’s creative crush Nobuhle and her blog EthneticMe

Ethneticme

So Nobuhle is a Dreamer | Extrodinaire  |  Believer

Her blog EthneticMe comes from a fusion of Authentic and Ethnic and everything there is sincerely from the heart. She started her blog as a place to heal following the unfortunate passing away of her father. With the support and encouragement from her brother it grew to become a space for her to be herself.

Her relationship is goals too her biggest fan is her husband!!!!

“Every time I am unsure about a post he reads through it for me and helps me with words”

EthneticMe

My favourite post from her blog is You Can Always Edit A Bad Page But You Cant Edit A Blank Page The post is titled  after the quote from Jodi Picoult on a talk about habits of effective writers.

I have since learnt to write down the sentences and come up with a paragraph that will eventually turn into paragraphs and voila I have a story.

Nobuhle

So that idea you have make today the day you start working on it dont leave your pages blank ♥♥♥♥♥

On what she would do differently if she could start all over again knowing what she knows now she says:

I would definitely write lots of content like maybe even 20 posts when inspiration hits, then space them out so when I am  going through a dry spell or too busy to write I always have content to upload

So do give her blog a look see and you can find her on the interwebs just search EthneticMe
