Getting to know you

Dear Followers,

You obviously know a bit about me now and what I’m about (positivity, motivation, making people happy). I would love if I could get to know more about YOU.

So, if you’re happy to do so, please answer the following questions in the comments box. It’s just a bit of fun and a way for me to get to know you.

1) When was the last time you felt over the moon, and why?

2) What never fails to make you laugh?

3) Who is your hero and why?

4) Have you discovered your life’s purpose? If so, what is it?

5) What do you find inspires or motivates you the most?

6) What makes you happy?

7) What are your favourite qualities in a person?

8) Do you get cranky when you’re hungry?

9) What is your favourite T.V show, book or film?

10) What’s your favourite thing about the internet?

I look forward to all your responses, please take the time to answer. I genuinely want to get to know my followers so I can write better for you and prepare a decent giveaway for when I hit my next ‘follower’ target.

Till next time




Knighting people – Bouquet of 3

Dear All,

I’m delighted to have been nominated for my first award, the ‘Bouquet of 3’ by the incredibly encouraging Lydia at My Feather Quill. She has been a great support to me since I started my blog a few months ago. Her blog is varied, down to earth and great to read. Her writing is superb and she does fantastic reviews.


The rules are as follows:

1. As the recipient of the award you have to share 7 things about yourself with the blogosphere.

2. Link back to the post of the person who nominated you (in this case it will be me).

3. Copy and Paste the Award logos into your new post.

2. To pass on the award you then nominate 15 bloggers (This bit is sort of like knighting someone)

3. You should let all the lovely bloggers know that they have been nominated so they can claim their virtual reward.

Here are the 7 things about me:

1) Sometimes I laugh so hard for so long, that my body goes into some sort of strange convulsion where I then can’t stop laughing or crying. The first time it happened I scared myself. Now I just enjoy it.

2) I would love nothing better than to positively change million’s of people’s lives.  I feel like my heart is breaking when I hear sad things happening to people and want to make it all better for them.

3) I tend to be a bit distrustful at first. This may date back to when I was a child and my older brother tricked me into picking up dog poo. We don’t talk anymore.

4) I believe life is an adventure to be lived to the full.

5) I will tell anyone who listens that when I happened to (briefly) meet Pink (who I love), I was the first one to let go when we shook hands. My friends who know me find this hard to believe. I think they thought I would jump on her back and cling to her like a barnacle.

6) My two favourite (non celebrity) people are my dad and my wife. Both are hilarious, crazy, wise and gentle people who I could sit at the feet of and listen to for hours.

7) I am a 67 year old in the body of a 27 year old. I’m regularly told I have an old head on young shoulders.

So, to carry on this knighting people award, below are the blogs that I enjoy reading. I have only been blogging a few months but here are the ones that I have enjoyed so far!

My name is Smiler and I’m talking to you. Yes, you.

Regardless of how you stumbled across this page, I’m so glad you’ve found your way here.

People have all sorts of passions. Everything from archaeology to zumba. My passion is people.

As the name of the blog suggests, I’m here to put the biggest smile on your face and help reduce that pesky anxiety. I get a kick out of seeing someone’s face light up and motivating them to follow their ambitions and dreams. I hate the thought of anyone being down or giving up on something important to them, especially due to anxiety.

My hope for this blog is that it becomes something you will turn to after a bad day. That it will motivate and inspire you. I hope over time we can create a little community with everybody chipping in and having a laugh. While you’re here you can leave reality behind, recharge and then go back out there and show everyone what you’re made of.

Till next time,
