This is absolutely surreal! Another award nomination! Wow! I am truly humbled and honoured to receive the Vincent Ehindero Blogging Award from two fellow bloggers. Firstly, I would like to thank Eromonsele Emmanuel for his nomination of me for this great award. His travel blog is hands down one of my favourites and will be yours too – please follow it here: https://ericotrips.wordpress.com
Secondly I would like to thank Ishan Dhyani who has also nominated me for this award. His blog – The Shooting Stars – has something for everyone from poetry to historical fiction and opinion pieces. Please follow it here: https://theshootingstars.home.blog
