The Vincent Ehindero Blogger Award

The Vincent Ehindero Blogger Award. I’ll admit I didn’t even know it was a thing, but today I was nominated. I have to say that I am extremely humbled to have been nominated by Tom at The Doubting Thomas blog .

Vincent Ehindero – Welcome to my big family! I make posts about ...

I have been following Tom’s blog for a short amount of time, but I really enjoy his posts. He says he only does it as a hobby, but he’s certainly talented enough to take it as far as he wants. Check out one of his recent blog posts, the brilliantly title, Cummings and Goings.

These are the rules to follow

1. Thank the person who nominated you with a link to their blog.
2. Make a post of the award (with a photo of the logo).
3. Post the rules
4. Ask 5-10 questions of your choice.
5. Nominate 10-30 other bloggers (or more) and notify them.

The Questions

1 – Who is your childhood hero and why?

Hmm, the only real answer I have is, Igor Stimac. A Croatian footballer who played for Derby County. A great player, a great leader, and when we randomly bumped into him during a tour of the stadium. He told someone who was working at the club to get a club flag, and signed it for us. A little extra touch that he didn’t have to do, that stays in the memory of a young boy.

2 – What is your biggest fear/phobia?

Being buried alive. And that is as much as I’m saying about that…

3 – Do you believe it’s healthy to have regrets?

Interesting question. I think it’s impossible to go through like without ever having any regrets. The important thing is not to obsess over them. Having regrets, but accepting them and even trying to do something about them, can be perfectly healthy.

4 – In your opinion, is social media healthy or damaging for the future generations? 

I read something a while ago that I hope comes true. I’m old enough (only just hah) to remember a time before social media. When it first came round it was a wonderful thing, where you just talked to your mates. Then it grew up a bit, and you expanded who you connected with. Then the trolls came, and now we are into the full on hormonal teenage years of social media. The theory was that it will eventually grow up and be more civilised. I hope so, because it is a great thing when used the right way.

5 – What is your favourite holiday destination?

We’ve not been abroad with the kids yet, it would take a lot of planning, and cause a lot of headaches. We especially don’t know how Jack would cope. So I will say Devon, which is my favourite place to go in the UK, with the family.

6 – If you had full disclosure, what would be written on your tombstone?

It’s not something I’ve ever thought about.

7 – What is your stance on religion?

Everyone’s free too believe in whatever they want to believe in.

My Questions

Now I’ve answered those questions, it’s time for me to leave some questions of my own. Then nominate at least 10 bloggers for the award.

  1. What is your favourite sport?
  2. What would you have for your “last meal”?
  3. If you could ask for a miracle, what would it be?
  4. What is your favourite book?
  5. Cats or Dogs?
  6. If your life needed saving, which superhero would you want to save you?

That’s it, I can’t think of anymore. Truth be told I had a hard enough time getting to six. The following are the 10 blogger I nominate for the Vincent Ehindero Blogger Award. I highly recommend checking them all out, they are all great at what they do. Keep doing what you do!

    Congratulations on your nomination, and thank you for nominating me.

    I’ve completed a fair few of these over the year, so I hope you don’t mind that I answer your questions here instead.

    What is your favourite sport?

    I use to love playing basketball in my younger days, but I don’t really have anything to do with sport now days, not even watching it.

    What would you have for your “last meal”?

    Tough question, probably a half portion butter chicken curry with egg fried rice, so that I have room for a warm chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and a strawberry cheesecake

    If you could ask for a miracle, what would it be?

    End all suffering

    What is your favourite book?

    I don’t really have one

    Cats or Dogs?

    Dog’s, unless it was a cheetah

    If your life needed saving, which superhero would you want to save you?

    Whichever one could get the job done in whatever life or death situation I found myself in. If I was drowning in the ocean, I’d probably want Aqua Man, but if my plane was falling out of the sky then someone like Superman would be more adventurous

        Congratulations on your nomination. I loved reading your answers. I agree that you can’t go through life without regrets but as long as you accept them and move on, learning from them, that’s ok.

          Thank you, I really appreciate you saying that, yeah, I never believe someone who says they have no regrets, if anything you’ve just made peace with your regret.

    Congrats on your nomination and thank you so much for nominating me, it’s an honour and I’m in extremely good company! I’ve been following your blog for a while now and love your honest posts about the challenges and joys of having a child with autism and one without. I like your point about accepting regrets, that’s such a good way of looking at them. And I’m with you on the phobia, it gives me ALL the fears! Lisa 🙂

    Most hearty congratulations on this nomination, and thank you for sharing the love with me!
    I love your open-mindedness about belief and religion, and your thoughts on the two sides of social media.
    Also, accepting regrets is a great way to lay them aside. Kind of like saying a cheerful goodbye! 🙂
