Blackbutterfly7’s 2013 in review – HAPPY NEW YEAR!

May Everyone Have A Safe And Prosperous New Year!

May you be happy, and have all your needs met in 2014 and afterwards. 

Just as the clock passes midnight from December 30th to December 31st of each year, Word Press releases stats for each of their blogs.

butterfly thank you 2Before I get into their stats, I want to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our subscribers and supporters.

Around July 2013, Blackbutterfly7 had approximately 65 subscribers.  As I write this, we now have 151 subscribers.  That’s amazing.  What makes it so amazing is that when this blog was opened, our concentration was justice for Trayvon and encouraging those of like-mind and Trayvon’s family and friends.   Blackbutterfly7 was always intended to be a soft and safe place to land. Then there were other tragedies and of course, we extended encouragement to other families who lost their children.

Being a blog with that focus, I did not anticipate more than 25 or so subscribers.  Why?  Because many of those active in advocating for equal justice also have or had their own blogs.  Others concentrated their efforts on Facebook and still others, on Twitter.

Since July 2013, Blackbutterfly7 continues advocating for equality for all.  As stated on our About page,

Blackbutterfly7 is interested in justice and equality for all.  Since the verdict in the Zimmerman case, we have reported and continue to report on other cases, those seeking investigation, and those seeking justice, regardless of religion, race, gender, or sexual orientation.

What most subscribers and readers do not know, is what goes on outside of public view because of this blog.  Myself, and some who comment here, along with other bloggers, have been relentlessly subjected to harassment, impersonation, and slander by a group of people who believe that America is being ruined by the “BGI”; i.e., “Black Grievance Industry.”  It doesn’t matter what your race is.  If you support equality for all, they believe you are part of the “BGI” and are “Negro” or “wannabee Negro.”  They use the justification that they support George Zimmerman, so violating law by harassing, slandering, and doxing, is justified in “exposing” the “BGI”.

The truth is that they do this to people who have nothing to do with reporting on the George Zimmerman case.  They submit vile comments to articles that have nothing whatsoever to do with George Zimmerman.

For those with Word Press blogs, I will write something in the near future on how to understand information that Word Press provides and how to use that information to report cyber-harassment to the proper authorities.

In spite of efforts to humiliate and threaten me into deleting this blog, and in spite of our limited subject focus, Blackbutterfly7 grew from about 25 subscribers and a bit over 10,000 views as of the end of 2012, to 151 subscribers and a combined total of over 84,000 views as of 11:59 p.m., CST, on December 30, 2013.

Blackbutterfly7 also makes videos and uploads them to YouTube.  That channel originally opened in 2009 to pay tribute to women in the military who made the ultimate sacrifice.  It had been inactive since mid 2009, with 0 subscribers,  2 videos, and 75 views.   We began uploading to that channel in January 2013 with a tribute video for what should have been Trayvon Martin’s 18th birthday.  That channel now has 98 subscribers, 80 videos, and 32,004 views.

It’s because of you, our subscribers and supporters.
