Nigel Higgins

DIY Dad inspiring others

By trade, Nigel is a painter and decorator, something he has done for over 20 years now. Alongside this, Nigel is also a blogger on his site DIY Daddy. Which he has been writing for 3½ years now and is where he documents the trials and tribulations of family life.

His blogging career started off as a hobby; somewhere he could write about his life and feelings, as well as the ups and downs of a busy family life. He states on his blog that he wanted a place to share his experience of being a Dad so hopefully, his children will read the blog some day and recall happy, fond memories. He also brings his practical experience to the fore and offers DIY help and advice.

We asked Emily what she thinks makes Nigel stand out from the crowd and she said "Nigel is kind, thoughtful, very motivated and will always go the extra mile to help anybody. He is always looking to improve himself, take advice and is always willing to learn. He is very motivated to be the best he can be."

2017 saw some great success for his blog and he was named number 2 on the list of Top 10 Daddy Bloggers. Similarly, he was named as number 8 on the list of Top 10 UK Parent Bloggers in the UK in the 2017 Vuelio Blog Awards. A fantastic achievement, and great testament to his hard work and dedication.

Emily said "Nigel is an awesome Dad and there are two reasons why. Firstly, he will always be there for his children no matter what. Whether it's something as simple as a lift or as somebody to listen to their problems, nothing is ever too much trouble. Secondly, he works very hard to ensure his family are financially sound and then works a bit harder so that they can have a few luxuries in life." She continues, "to achieve this you have to have one simple thing and Nigel has loads of it – it's called love of family; a rare commodity in today's world."

We believe Nigel is a great example of a SuperAchiever Dad who has dedicated his life to making sure his family are happy and secure, while opening his life up through his blog to share, inspire and help others.
