First I would like to thankPLEXIUSnominating me! What an honor!
A shout out to my friends – Please make sure you stop by Plexius’ blog and say hello!
What was the drive behind you taking up blogging?
I wanted to help other’s who struggle with mental illness and the hopes that if I could make one person’s day a little brighter so that they didn’t do something that could not be undone, than I had achieved my ultimate goal. Also, I had hoped it would give me a chance to do some creative writing and get back to doing some photography along with connecting with some new friends.
What do you define as a ‘perfect’ day?
That would be the day I hit the lottery and could bounce back and forth on my private plane and visit all 3 of my grandchildren at will, give my children some extra financial freedom, visit my sisters and aunts in IN that I have never met , return to OR to visit old friends and hang out with my younger bro in AZ. But if the lottery doesn’t come thru than I shall take a jammy day, watching Gilmore Girls with my beloved canines by my side.
Who is the most inspirational personality you have met until now?
Both of my children. They have achieved so much. It doesn’t matter what life has thrown at them! They “find the solution” and make it work. Keeping it positive. 😉
How to you define ‘blogging’ ?
Interacting and sharing ideas with others. Learning!! Always learning about others and about myself.
I think I will pass on the same questions (they are very good)

Apparently not all bloggers will want to accept the award to your blog. I’m nominating you anyways because I think the purpose of these award is to nominate the blogs you admire and also create exposure to other blogs and create a following train. Thank you.

Thank you to Art by Rob Goldstein for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award.
The rules of this award are:
Explain how and why you started this blog. Offer advice to new bloggers. Nominate other bloggers for the award.
I originally started The Black Wall Blog to help others see a more positive side of life on their journey to overcome their depression, panic, anxiety, and PTSD. Offering some of my own tips and tricks via my faithful proven, often unique methods that I carry in my “tool box.” Hopefully, I have been successful and helped others on their quest.
I knew that when I helped others it helped me feel better. I also had hoped to make some contacts and friends along the way. No way could I have realized how many caring, insightful and talented people I would meet on my own blog/life journey.
I share and read what others have to share. What has transpired is way beyond my wildest dreams. The positive impact on me from what I am learning is phenomenal!! With an added bonus of being able to re-enter the world of creative writing/poetry and prose.
I also am part of the elite group that were the first guest bloggers on the Success Inspirer’s World. That opened me up to even more opportunities. I am so grateful for all of you that have touched my life…. Kind Regards and feeling humble – K
To the newbies in the blogging world.
You start to dabble in the blog world and have written your first posts. After that, make sure you start mingling in meet and greets. Connect with others that have blogs with topics similar to yours. Join challenges. Ask questions. Make sure to check out the blogs that are totally different than your original vision. You may experience and connect with people that will inspire you and take you down a path you didn’t even know existed… ALWAYS be polite and respectful. A must must is to always acknowledge comments. Think teamwork and you will find it a very rewarding experience… And be patient…. It will all come together as you find your place.
These people (plus many others) have touched me and made this a grand life path. There is no obligation to participate. Though I hope that you do!!

I think the wonderful thing about Awards, is to see the appreciation of your fellow bloggers, and it is a great way to get to know each other a little better,I am sure we have all initiated friendships and acquaintances that without our blogosphere, our paths would not have crossed, we cross the world daily in chats and comments and on occasions have learnt a great knowledge about countries and their culture thousands of kilometers away, I for one, am truly happen with my blogosphere world.
To think of entertainment, it compasses a range of implications:- Did I laugh, Did I cry, Did I learn ?
The following people have made me do one of those three things, I’m sure they’d do the same for you as well……………..
This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee.
