This is the last in my triple bill of tag response posts to finish off the year. And this is the Colours Of The Rainbow tag by Luke Sam Sowden, which asks for the meanings that you associate with various colours – red, yellow, pink, green, orange, purple, blue, black, white and brown. So I thought it would be something different and fun to do, and I tag anyone else who wants to respond to it as well. I hope you enjoy my answers! Continue reading “The Colours Of The Rainbow Tag”
Following on from the Blogger Recognition Award I posted yesterday, I’ve also been nominated to do the Disability Misconceptions Tag by Holly (Life Of A Blind Girl), a tag that was originally created by Nicola (View From A Walking Frame).
The topic of disability misconceptions comes up regularly, so it’s always an interesting one to talk about. So I nominate anyone who wants to join in with it, as I know many great disabled writers and Youtubers in amongst the many blogs I follow. Thank you to Holly for nominating me, and I hope you like my answers to the questions!
As if nominating me for the Liebster Award wasn’t generous enough, Holly from Life Of A Blind Girl has also nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award twice this year, in January and October, which is very kind indeed, thank you Holly! Do go and check out Holly’s blog, as she publishes lots of great posts about visual impairment, disability awareness and her hobbies and interests.
The Blogger Recognition Award simply requires you to write a bit about your blog and give advice to new bloggers, and then nominate other bloggers to do the same, to share the love and give them some exposure and recognition. So that’s what I’m going to do here. Thanks again to Holly for nominating me!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! 🙂
I hope everyone’s having a wonderful time, with all the fun and food and festivities that Christmas brings!
If you’re working to keep services and utilities running, or you’re volunteering to help out those less fortunate e.g. the disabled, elderly, homeless, etc, then thank you so much for your efforts and commitment, as you don’t get as much gratitude as you deserve for it.
And if you’re not having a nice Christmas for whatever reason, then you have my sympathies, and I hope you’re able to find some support or company to help get you through the day. There are lots of options if you need someone to talk to.
For me, this Christmas is hugely significant, as it’s my first proper one as a resident of London. So I wanted to mark it with a couple of special posts.
Yesterday, therefore, I made an extensive post about my Christmas music collection, following the advent calendar music posts I’ve been making on social media this month.
And now today’s post is a Christmas Q&A , all about how I celebrate and enjoy Christmas, and I’ve also made a video to go with it. Everyone reading this is welcome to answer the questions as well, I tag everyone who wants to do it. So I hope you enjoy reading my festive posts, and finding out about how I celebrate Christmas!
Today’s post is the Getting To Know Me Tag, which is basically 20 questions about me. This is in response to the tag video by How Casey Sees It, a great visually impaired Youtuber who I recommend you check out if you’re not aware of her already. And I’ve made a video to go with this post as well.
So I hope you enjoy finding out a few things about me. And I tag everyone reading this who wants to do the tag themselves too.
Last year I was nominated for the Liebster Award, which was very surprising and flattering considering I was a relatively new blogger at the time. It’s a fun way of showing your fellow blogging friends that you appreciate and enjoy their work, by giving them valuable exposure and promotion. If you’re nominated, you can answer the questions set for you, and then nominate some other bloggers, asking them some questions of your own.
And this year I’ve been nominated for the second time, with huge thanks to Holly at Life Of A Blind Girl! Holly recently graduated from university, which is fantastic, so congratulations! I remember how wonderful that feeling is, seems a long time now since my own graduation. Anyway, Holly writes lots of wonderful posts about her experiences being visually impaired, as well as advocating and educating around sight loss and disability, and posting about other things she enjoys too. So do go and check her out, there’s a lot of great stuff to read there.
I’ve been meaning to write my response post for a while, and I’m sorry it’s taken so long. But here are my answers to Holly’s questions. Hope you enjoy. Thanks again Holly! 🙂
Today, November 1st 2017, is Nystagmus Awareness Day (aka Wobbly Wednesday), set up by the Nystagmus Network here in the UK. Nystagmus is a condition where the eyes shake and move involuntarily all the time, which makes it harder to focus and concentrate on things. It can come as part of the package with other eye conditions or on its own, and it has different levels of severity in different people. So it’s a very varied condition. For a detailed explanation of how it affects me personally, check out my Living With Nystagmus post and video.
To mark the day, I’ve been tagged to answer some questions on nystagmus by Youtuber Jessica King (Jessylrk) – thank you Jessica! And if you have nystagmus too, then I tag you to do this as well. So here are my answers to the questions, and I hope you find them interesting. You can also watch a video of my responses as well.
