Sunshine Blogger Award


So, I have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger award by Bexcapades who has an unbelievable travel and mental health blog! She is currently preparing for a move to Australia so give her a follow so you can see it when she moves 🙂

For those of you who don’t know the purpose of the Sunshine Blogger Award, it is given to a blogger that is inspirational through their positivity and creativity in the blogging community.


What is your favourite thing about blogging?

Has to be the community that I have come across on Twitter and here on WordPress. Alongside having the ability to express emotions through pieces that I like to think help some people out.

Why did you start blogging?

I kept a journal as seen here Journal (ling?) but I had seen some people use blogs for similar written expression so I felt this would be just as good!

What is your favourite way to relax? 

TV, book and music. God, I would be dead without the use of those 3 things sometimes!

What inspires / motivates you?

The ability to make a difference! I had no plans to write about mental health or my life even half as much as I have done on this blog. But if I write just 1 post that helps 1 person, I would be beyond happy!

If I could travel anywhere right now, where would you go? 

Back to New York in a heartbeat! I loved America and it is somewhere that I hope to return to very soon 🙂

What is your favourite music?

Oh god, I simply don’t know. Later this week though there is a post coming on the effect music has us as individuals. Check back for that as there is a more inclusive answer!

Top 3 Favourite Bloggers? 

This is tough! I was only looking through my subscriptions Saturday night, so I apologise for those I have to leave out. Would have to say Bex who nominated me for being such an inspiration with her travel escapades 😉 Thomas Taylor the man who is hustling and grinding his way to the top! Finally Sadie Wolf the way she writes draws the reader in and keeps them interested start to finish!

Where are you from?

Kildare, Ireland!

What is your biggest passion?

Being out in nature taking pictures! I put in earphones, play some music, grab my camera and just get lost out there 🙂

What are you most excited for in 2018? 

I just came to realise that this is probably going to be my last 8 months in education unless I do a Phd so taking the time to work on myself is what I am looking forward to the most!

What is your dream job? 

I have absolutely no idea…. if anyone has any advice leave it in the comments below!

But I am changing a question! Instead of if you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

The question is now; If you could do anything right now, would it be to go to someone or to go somewhere and why?

  1. Oh my gosh! Hahahaha! I still have to make a follow up post to the original blogger award you nominated me! Thank you so much for this Matt!

    You are consistently one of my favorite bloggers that I’m always keen on reading. The quotes that you post are amazing and you always have motivation lying around. If my blog was half of yours, I would consider myself a success ;)!
