Influencing the world through words

After a hiatus, I am back with my B-Connect series. Sorry for being away for a few weeks. Anyway, I am back with episode 13 and this week I have with me Ray from ‘The Ray Journey‘.

Here’s what she had to say when I threw a few questions at here. Enjoy!

Getting Prepped Up 

What is your name, and where you’re from?

Ray, from Egypt.

What are some of your interests?

Watching films, contemplating nature, reading books, and writing fiction. 

What or who got you into blogging?

I initially started blogging as a way to document my research findings on the topics I learn about.

Why do you love blogging?

Well, it has become a form of sharing information and helping people understand certain topics easier, so that made me love it. 

What does blogging mean to you?

It has become my main focus in life for the past year. However, I can’t say whether or not it will remain so. So its meaning to me is sort of unclear right now. 

Which is the best social platform for your blogs?

So far, Twitter has been the best for both traffic and connecting with other bloggers.

What advice would you give to an upcoming blogger?

I think most people who get into blogging don’t realize how time-consuming it is and the amount of effort it actually takes to keep up with everything beside the task of writing the articles. 

So my advice would be that you must be willing to put up with how much time and effort you will need to put into it, and also to be patient, because it will usually take some time before people know you actually exist.

Honesty Blogger Hour

If you could meet one blogger you met online, whom would it be?

Oh this is very hard to answer; there are so many bloggers that I would love to meet in person. 

If I absolutely have to cut this list down, it will still be a tie between Erin (Erin baby steps), Sandy (Sunday morning with Sandy), and Hannah (Pages, Places, & Plates). 

According to you, name your three underrated bloggers.

Well, I am answering this just off the top of my head. 

Erin (Erin Baby Steps), 

Krystyn (Passion and Peace)

Julie (Dark Blue Journal)

Those are the first 3 that come to mind, but I know so many other underrated bloggers out there.

Your most favourite blog you’ve written till date.

Well, if I have to pick only one, I will go with this one about the different ways you can create passive income in Egypt. Because there was absolutely nothing like this available online when I was starting out my journey and my blog to help me out, so I am both happy and proud that I got to the point where I could make this available for others.

Your least favourite blog you have written.

I don’t have a least favourite. I am proud of all the blogs I’ve written.

The best blog you have read till date is…

Honestly, I have no idea. I read so many great articles, and I appreciate them at the time of reading, but I wouldn’t necessarily remember them long after. My bad memory is to blame for that. 

Would You Rather

Would you rather date an ugly person with a good heart or a beautiful/handsome person with a bad heart?

Well, ugliness is subjective. So, if you mean they are ugly in “my eyes”  then I will pick neither. I can’t be with someone that I find ugly, and I also won’t date someone purely for their looks. 

However, they could be ugly to you or to most people, like by society standards of ugliness, whatever that might be, but to me, in my eyes, they are not ugly, in which case, I’ll take the “ugly” person with the good heart.

Would you rather help the poor or waste it on a party?

Did anyone ever pick the second option? I would be interested to know this person.. lol

As for my answer, help the poor for sure.

Would you rather want your life to be full of money and suffering or less money and good health?

Less money and good health. Although, I am really aiming for both right now! 

Would you rather sit home and spend time with your family or go on a date with your celebrity crush?

Go on a date with a celebrity crush, of course! How is that even a question?

No More Secrets

Describe an incident you’re not proud of.

When I was 7, I pinned something wrong I did on someone else just to get away from the punishment. Little did I know it would live to haunt my conscience 20 years later..

Three facts nobody knows about you.

  • I hate being photographed
  • I have very sensitive ears in the morning
  • In high school, I was part of the so-called “popular (mean) girls.” Though I was more like Cady, and I was Regina George’s BFF (well, until she turned on me, but that’s too much drama for this question..). 

Name of your secret crush.

I don’t have any.

Choices to Make

Twitter or Instagram


Tea or Coffee


Summer or Winter


Morning Person or Night Person

Both. I have a very odd brain, my day flips around all the time, and my biological hour is dead. So, morning and night are one and the same to me, at this point.

Introvert or Extrovert

Erm, introvert. 

Cake or Chocolate


KFC or McDonald’s

McDonald’s (not crazy about them though)

Money or Love


City or Countryside

Countryside. (though I have never lived in one, so I don’t know if I’d feel the same way had I actually lived there..)

Watching sports or playing it

I’d rather play it, but I only really watch it, at the moment.

Movies or TV Shows


Marvel or DC Comics

I have favourite films and characters in both universes, so I don’t really have a favourite universe, but I’ll have to go with Marvel because The Avengers film has a special place in my heart.

Home-cooked food or Outside food

Home-cooked (as long as it is not me who has to cook it)

Gift giver or Gift Receiver

A gift giver.
