The Versatile Blogger Award

I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by my celebrity friend and versatile blogger, Goldie. I’m so honoured.

Goldie discusses thought-provoking topics and shares interesting stories in response to writing prompts very often. You can holla at Goldie at Daily Flabbergast, a treasure trove of everything awesome.


  1. Place the logo on your site.
  2. Thank the person who nominated you.
  3. Reveal seven things about yourself.
  4. Nominate other bloggers.

7 Things About Me:

  1. I am 5ft 9″, which is โ€œshortโ€ as far as I’m concerned.
  2. I have an imaginary friend who I call Galexa; we’ve been best friends since I was eight.
  3. I love the colours blue and orange. Wearing a blue or orange shirt would make me feel positive, even when I’m at my saddest. (Do colours affect your mood? Which one? How does it affect you?)
  4. At the start of a long journey, I would eat some ginger or red pepper so that I don’t vomit along the way. Motion sickness is a terrible curse.
  5. I don’t like chocolate (Sue me! ๐Ÿ˜).
  6. I’m a teetotaler: I don’t take alcoholic beverages.
  7. I cannot dance to save my life.

My Nominations:

Thank you for reading. Stay productive always.

      Here’s a short list of ‘foods’ I dislike:

      3. Butter
      4. Mayonnaise
      5. Chocolate
      6. Sponge cake

      And more ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

        1. Yeah, I am not friends with pounded yam. Call me ‘a bush girl’. I’ve got no issues with that.

          How do you cope with mayonnaise? Salad cream, bama, and the likes do not count in my world.

          I prefer plain cakes.

          Well, we are wired differently. Is God amazing?

          My love for coconut bread CAN NEVER BE BROKEN!

  1. I’m a celebrity? [looks around for paparazzi]
    Thank you for saying such great things about me. So nice to hear.

    Galexa sounds like a female name. Is that accurate? And how did you come up with such a name?

    Consciously, colors don’t affect my mood. But I know enough about psychology to know that subconsciously they affect all of us.

    Red pepper? I had no clue. Just bell pepper? Or a spicy one? I knew about ginger, though.

    1. That is accurate. She’s a girl.
      How did I come up with the name? Well, that’s a very funny story.

      When we first became friends, I called her Shining Star, mostly because I thought she came to me in my darkest hour: that time when I had self-esteem issues.

      Over the years, I thought Shining Star was a silly name, so I decided to come up with a cool name, one that still relates to the story behind Shining Star.

      I couldn’t call her Galaxy (sounds awkward), so I called her Galexa. I can’t say I came up with the word, though. I know I’ve seen it somewhere, though; I just can’t remember where.

      Anyway, she liked the name and so it stuck. End of story. ๐Ÿ˜

      I won’t be surprised if you find this weird.

      The red pepper is the spicy one. Spicy foods are my silver bullet for anything that nauseates me.

  2. You must be the only black man on the planet that can’t dance….Oh, oops! I forgot about Barack Obama, he can’t dance either. Michelle dances circles around him. Hahahaha

  3. Congratulations on your award! Versatility is a good thing! Keeps us from becoming boring! Hey, Iโ€™m not a huge chocolate fan either, but I wouldnโ€™t go so far as to say I dislike it. Just donโ€™t crave it and can pass it by without difficulty. You asked about colors: I love bright primary colors. Red makes me feel strong and vibrant. Royal blue makes me feel lovely (it accents my gray hair). Bright green makes me feel fresh and energetic. Bright yellow makes me feel sparkly, like the warm sun at mid-day. Brown or gray make me more subdued. Black is my go-to color over which I add the personality for the day. Pale blue or pink or olive green wash me out and pull me down. Would you say colors affect my moods?

    1. Yes, I would say so! I can relate to your relationship with colours. Red also makes me feel strong and vibrant. So does orange. Blue soothes me; it calms me and makes me feel at peace. And wow, I react to bright green the same way you do (funny coincidence!).

      It’s just fascinating how colours affect us, consciously or subconsciously.

  4. Hurray, thanks for nominating me! I think I will actually do this one because it is short ๐Ÿ˜€

    I have motion sickness as well. Even if I drive myself.
    It is much better than it used to be though!

    I think colors do affect my mood. I don’t like bright colors for example.
    But red doesn’t scream danger to me.
    And black definitely doesn’t make me feel depressed.

    1. You’re welcome! ๐Ÿ˜ The reason I don’t do award posts very often is that they’re usually long and filled with complicated questions.
      Regardless, I look forward to reading your post!

      Interesting how you react to colours. I also don’t find black depressing.
