HAPPINESS: Six more award nominations for my Blog

In 2011, I started The Happiness Blog to inspire and bring happiness to as many people as I could online. Just like the saying,”you get what you give” I didn’t know it would bring me this joy. Little did  I know it will improve my writing skills. I also didn’t know I have a talent that could gain acknowledgment and recognition from different distinguished people from different continents.Sarah Ban Breathnach once said,”Real life isn’t always going to be perfect or go our way, but the recurring acknowledgement of what is working can help us not only survive but surmount our difficulties”. Nothing has brought me more happiness than blogging in many months. On this note, I would like to humbly accept this nominations and thank authors of the following blogs:

Jennifer Vidal  http://misformarriageandmotherhood.wordpress.com/about/

Andrea http://andreacarbax.wordpress.com/about/

Jonathan http://237blessed.wordpress.com/about/

Connie Wayne http://ahopefortoday.com/about-m/

Amira   http://mindblur.wordpress.com/about-2/

This outstanding bloggers inspired me to realize my potential, they could inspire you too. If you believe in the power of words to change lives,please visit their blog and see why they are unique and spectacularly a sensation. That click could change your life.


Two bloggers nominated me for this award. Jennifer and Andrea nominated me for the this award. Honestly, I follow Jennifers blog religiously. I don’t only follow her because of her religious content but because she inspires me every other day to be a better family man. She also writes from the heart. Andrea has a very artistic nature of presenting her ideas. Her writing style is so poetic and appealing to me for the time I have followed her blog.

Since there seem to be no procedure to follow to nominate any one, I would like to nominate:




At this point it’s not surprising that I am one of Jennifers’ top four bloggers. That’s why she has also nominated me for this Liebster Blog Award.

I am therefore not going to get tired of appreciating her for being such a great fan of my writing and a great friend too. The small things that one does in one’s life gets a long way in making them a better person but most important is that it takes you further in life.

The rules of this award are:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top five picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favorite bloggers and keep it going!


As expected of this nominations, I have the  honor to nominate five (5) out standing bloggers to this Award. There is no doubt that I have hundreds of bloggers I admire,however I’m obliged to follow the Awards rules.My Awards go to; I can hear drum-rolls  🙂







To be a king is an expression of the highest regard a blogger can have of you. I do hope this blog will inspire me to have a good Kings generosity to give and not expect back the wisdom of Happiness. While this award to me is for my passion in promoting the Kingdom of God, I believe there are many bloggers I have encountered online who share my values and appreciation of life. I will therefore nominate bloggers whose message has inspired me in my spiritual journey and life.






With great pleasure, these are my nominations for King of Kings Award. i do hope that visiting their blogs inspires you  and makes you a better person.




Connie Wayne is my latest blogging Hero. I am so much taken up by her works that if she had not been the author of this award, I would gladly nominate her to this award. I certainly find my self in the highest happiness index to realize that I am among the people she has nominated after creating this Award. This is a very special blog award with a more comprehensive regulation for one to take part in the nomination awards.

I will therefore nominate one special blogger. I have always turned to her writing in my spiritual journey.Her writing keeps me much stronger in faith. God is Good is a blog that gives me a clearer purpose in life and a better understanding of who I am.


Conclusively, this has been a long blog post. I however would like to thank every one who signed up to receive my blog post every time I make a post. We are in hundreds and more keep signing up daily. It’s no more about me and my passion for happiness. It’s about our desire to find and share happiness.This year our dream is to turn this ideas to practical aspects of bringing happiness to those who need it. I will be grateful to receive any ideas of practicing or bringing happiness to every one’s life.Thank you so much.


Kreativ Blogger Awards

My new year has started off in the best way imaginable for any blogger.I have been privileged and honored yet again with another award. I must admit, my happiness index is at its super best.When I started blogging, I envisioned making as many people happy as possible.As it turns out, blessed are those who give for they shall receive.I have been overwhelmed with some quality blogging love and dedication of bloggers on my page. I can not love you all enough but commit to the pursuit of other people’s happiness.Most important is to change my writing to actions this year.At this point,let me pay greatest respect and gratitude to Lauren http://lscotthoughts.com/  Lauren to me is one of the most exceptional inspirational poets with great insights on life.Her works reflects the distinguished art of  writing from the heart.Enjoy her life changing poetic writings and short stories by visiting her blogs for inspiration.

If I had not started blogging, I would not have realized my writing talent nor would I ever realize my writing can be appreciated from different continents.This has been possible because of you bloggers.The lesson to every one is “never fail to try but try and fail” Ask yourself if there s a talent you are sitting on and subject it to public test.It could be a jack pot.This joy and happiness is as good as a jack pot to me.Now I am confident I can have a career in writing.Now I can inspire and motivate from the confines of my room.Now I have an Identity, I belong to a wonderful community  of online bloggers who are committed to my happiness in the same way I am dedicated to their happiness.

The rules of this award is that I share ten things about myself. I have previously shared things about myself but because there is more to say about my self than ten things, I will open up more about myself with the hope that it helps you know me better.

  1. I attended a missionary catholic school in Africa where it was against school rules to speak my native language.I would be flogged the number of words I spoke so as never to speak my local language but English and I thought it was normal.
  2. Growing up and studying in conflict in Uganda(Africa), we had to sleep in our schools’ roof ceiling for eighteen months to avoid abduction and conscription to a rug tug rebel movement that trains kids how to kill.Over 20,000 were abducted
  3. The first time I thought I fell in love was with a girl in early high school who spoke English like the “white man” himself. I fell in love with her English because it was a sign of civility and exposure. I guess it was a fantasy and not true love.
  4. The experience of loosing my Dad at 16 yrs was the strongest experience; I learnt to fend for myself in life and develop a thick skin of resilience to hard times and a positive attitude in life. I kept smiling and happy thereafter till to-date.
  5. As a child growing up in Africa, our best game was hunting wild birds and doing the roast to eat. It taught me social skills and character formation to be a people person.I guess I can get along with any one if I have a reason to relate with them.
  6. Another interesting thing about me is I never physically saw a plane that had landed untill I was 30 yrs old on my first flight to America,yet we would run for miles to see military helicopters land at a nearby airfield.Awesome experience
  7. I never learnt how to use a computer till I was 27 years old.I finished my first degree without ever pressing any letter on the key board.Now you can tell we live in different worlds and that’s just six years ago. I came a long way ahahahah lol
  8. The first time I visited Uganda’s only city was to speak as a student leader and the first time to ever get in a plane 5 yrs ago and visit America was to speak for my organization.Now you know why I am glad I learnt to write as a blogger.
  9. Last but not least, I won a full scholarship from the Joan B. kroc School of Peace Studies in San Diego, California for my Masters in Peace and Justice Studies. 
  10. Finally, I am a husband and father to two very handsome boys. Aliker Jermy Miguel(4yrs) and Aliker  Jason Bailey(1yr). Unfortunately, because of my scholarship, I have only had a week to see and relate with my last born Bailey.    

    My Joy


 There are so many friends on my blog to be nominated,however the rules expect me to nominate only six bloggers.  Now this feels like that kiss on Jesus’ cheek. But because I trust all bloggers play by the rules I will nominate six bloggers to this award in respect to their creativity and dedication to blogging.
Once again,bloggers thanks for always visiting my blog and inspiring me to keep blogging. Lets keep blogging to keep this community that which is mindful of our daily Happiness.Happiness remains a choice, so take the chance and chose to be happy.Best of luck in the week
