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.


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!!

Do Meet and Greets Really work?

As my old boss used to say:

Here is “Proof of the pudding” or  

“Proof is in the pudding.”

Never heard of this? I’m sorry.. smirk

The idiom is usually stated the proof is in the pudding and means that the end result is the mark of the success or failure of one’s efforts or planning. The phrase may also be used in the past and future tenses: the proof will be/was in the pudding.

– Quoted from grammarist.com/usage/proof-is-in-the-pudding/

dont crack me up zen to zany FLY

YES, I know, content, content, content. Be real….

Don’t concentrate on your Stats.

I can’t help myself I like to dabble. (One eyeball on stats just to see what works, what doesn’t, and refusing to lose sight of me in the process)

I am cursed or better yet BLESSED with an analytical/creative combo brain!

OH heck it is what it is! I am used to dealing with it.

HERE I AM. Take it or leave it. 😉





Here is the pudding:

5 Minute- Proof of Our Uniqueness Game


What inspired me to do this?

What I deem to be one of the greatest quotes of all time:

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

ALL you need is 5 minutes? Got 5? Sure ya do!!  


What and Why are we doing this game?

I want to reinforce that –

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”― Friedrich Nietzsche

            Our uniqueness is BEAUTIFUL, it should be embraced!

It will capture our invaluable uniqueness or maybe in some way we are alike, which would be wonderfully unique! Great minds and all that:

I  have broken it down to a simple basic “all language friendly” method.

I decided on playing with COLORS.


I had a hard time naming this because:

A) Exercisesounded too much like work! UGH!

exercise for blog

B) Experimentsounded too scientific. DOUBLE UGH!

scienticif for blog

C) Game sounded just right- It makes me think of fun!

fun sign for blog


Here are the rules of the game:

  1. Have a pencil/pen and scrap piece of paper ready.
  2. For each color listed, close your eyes for a second, then write down the first thing that you visualize when you think of that color.
  3. Then scroll down (no cheating, please), and check out my answers.
  4. *Please, reply with your answers with only the # beside them. *What you thought of this game (be honest) and please, DO NOT GIVE of MY answers to the game.*Do you feel this is proof of our individuality? If not why?
  5. Tag 3 friends/blogs you want to join us, reblog  it linked back to my blog and let’s see how many we can get to join our unique MEET AND GREET. 

ALERT!! If you match all of my answers- email me immediately!!That means we are twins that were separated at birth!!  Ha!


Here are the colors:

  1. Blue
  2. Orange
  3. Red
  4. Yellow
  5. Green
  6. Pink
  7. White
  8. Brown

Write down what comes to mind when you think of each color?? 

Okay! now you can scroll down.
