So what is this award? A mystery blog award!

Now, whats the Mystery Blogger Award?

Its an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion. ~ Okoto Enigma

Five Questions For The Nominees Of This Award

1. How old is your blog now?

This particular blog I started in 2015, but I’d been blogging before then, on another blog, my first blog post on wordpress was in January 2012.

2. What do you enjoy most about blogging?

I enjoy the comradory, the friends I’ve made are all amazing and I love that I am also raising awareness of mental illness, disability and other related issues too!

3. How important do you think Social Media is for the success of a blog?

I dont think its that important. Most of my readers come from wordpress itself, not from facebook or twitter but I do have my blog linked to both places.

4. How would you define a sucessful blog? In other words, what do think a successful blog looks like?

Lots of engagement, comments, likes, but especially comments on posts, engagement, its keye for any blog to do well. If a blogger doesnt respond to comments, they’re blog will flop.

5. Funny/Weird Question: if you were a superhero, what superpower would you like to have and what would you do with it?

Liebster award thank you Rory!

Hi everyone!
Rory from a guy called bloke and canine doodlepup has kindly gifted me the liebster award! Thanks Rory!
Thanks so much, Rory! Your a gem!

Liebster Guide Lines
Thank the person who gifted you, and add a link to their blog.

Add the logo of the award to your post and a link to the creator of this blog award – The Global Aussie: The Official Rules of the Liebster Award 2019

Write a paragraph about what motivates you in life (not just in blogging).

Answer the 5 questions given to you.

Gift 3 blogs that you feel would enjoy receiving the award.

Create 5 questions for those you have gifted the Liebster Award to.

What motivates me? My family, my dog, I like to try to be positive if I can! I believe being positive is the way to go! My family have always taught me to stay strong! Be brave! Be independent! As a blind person this is a very good thing for them to teach me as I have made my own way in life and navigated life pretty successfully I’d say!

And now I shall attempt to answer the 5 questions Rory has set for me!

Why do we enjoy asking questions that we know may not have an answer because of the very nature of a person’s free will and both opinion and belief?

I think we enjoy it because we like to see what is that person going to say to this or that question that I pose, we like to see what their responses will be, its our curiosity it gets the better of us!

Why are so many people keen to believe in something rather than nothing? In so far as is it easier to believe in a God, or life after death or whatever because to not have anything to believe in, means that once we are dead there is absolutely nothing?

Hmm not sure, but if I had to guess I'd say yes thats absolutely it! If we dont believe in certain things then what do we do? Where or who do we turn to?

Do we really have free will or is it purely an illusion we have created to think we are our own people?

We all have free will! That is my belief!

What decisions or actions have you made in your life that have had the longest reaching impact and consequence on your life?

My decision to go to college, was a major one! My decision to get a guide dog was another! Also my decision to write! Start a blog! It has changed my life for the better!

What would happen if it was proved beyond a shadow of doubt that God did not exist, but life in an extra terrestrial form did?

I think we'd all run for the hills! Aliens on earth? Wow! A scary thought!

And now my 5 questions to my nominees?

1. If you could live for eternity, would you want to?

2. If you had a whole week to yourself, what would you do with your time?

3. What is your biggest fear?

4. What irks you the most?

5. Are you a morning person or a night owl?

And my 3 nominees are…

Thanks again Rory! I truly appreciate the nomination!

Dads ill, prayers needed

Can you all please send some prayers and good wishes to our dad?
He’s ill! He has a severe chest infection! He went to the doctor and the doctor gave him a course of steroids, and an antibiotic to take.
The doctor also said he has low iron, and needs to have his bloods checked again, to see how low it actually is now, and so he made an apt for april 16th to have his bloods done on that date.
Also he is going to be having a bone density scan soon as he has brittle bone and its getting worse, he’s had some flare ups recently.
So any and all prayers and good thoughts wishes good vibes are appreciated!
thanks guys!
