Highlights of my life-

Nothing can beat being introduced to your child at birth. I have two adult children AND to meet/hold a grandchild for the first time!

Nothing will ever top that!

A) Being a part of the blogging community- My personal blog and being welcomed into the fold of the SIWO family!

Glorious opportunities to touch, spread positivity and create with people all over the world!

Letting people know THEY are not alone!

mission in life!

the-sunshine-blogger-award

5. Notify the bloggers you have nominated

First I would like to thank PLEXIUS nominating me! What an honor!

A shout out to my friends – Please make sure you stop by Plexius’ blog and say hello!

My questions

  • 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)

to the people I nominate!

Blogger Recognition Award

blogger-recognition-award

 

The Blogger Recognition Award comes to me from https://robertmgoldstein.com/

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.

WHY-

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.

Nominations:

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!!

The Black Cat Blue Sea Award

unnamedunnamed (1)
A heartfelt thank you goes to Angelicakidd.wordpress for nominating me!!

A little about this award:

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. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes.

The 3 questions that I need to answer:

Who was the first blog/blogger you heard of/read and did they inspire you to start?

One of the very first I read was Carl D’Agostino, I Know I Made You Smile! Since, that time there have been  bloggers that have helped mentor me and keep me moving forward….worthy of mention are Jackie at a cooking pot and twistedtales,  Marianne @ along the side of the road and Ngobesing Romanus Success Inspirer’s World along with an extremely large number of new fellow bloggers I have connected with, thanks to some very popular “MEET AND GREETS” on Word press. 

Do you see blogging as a future career or just a side hobby?

In my heart I aspire for my blogging and writing to be a career. For now it is a release and side hobby. But…. One never knows what the future holds. You just have to believe in yourself!

What is your all time favorite album and why? How does it make you feel to listen to it?

Obviously, there can’t be just one:  Each one brings back wonderful memories of various times in my life! 

White album 

-The Beatles

Straight Shooter

-Bad Company

On the Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes I & II

– Donna Summer

 

I would like to nominate, if they choose to accept the nomination for their impact on others as is stated in ” a little about this award”.

I would like to nominate Justbiz242.com , May K. Hella everything i love ♡ (and everything in between)! , Miracle Girl Blog and Flying Colours 603 Blog for this award. The rules are quite simple and stated below. I am not sure how others do it but the first time i was nominated I didn’t have a clue what to do so I started by downloading the top pic of Liebster award and then the Rules see below- added them to a new post. Then answered the questions from the blogger nominated me. Then followed THE RULES. Don’t forget to Link to the people you are nominating and back to the person who nominated you…  psssst- I found the fastest way to discover new bloggers is to read some of the Meet and Greets and check out some “new” blogs. Your nominees really should have under 200 followers. Good luck.
