Versatile Blogger Award and Blue Sky Tag

Thanks to Studiotj and Barclay Dave for their nominations.

Thanks to my dear friends for this humbling honor.   I also want to take this opportunity to thank followers, visitors,  and participants.

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident has been nominated for Versatile Blogger previously,  so I’m not repeating the Rules here, which are similar to the Blue Sky Tag.

Blogger Recognition Award



Blogger Recognition


We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident/Blackbutterfly7, has been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by two different bloggers.   Each one has different rules.  One does not require nominating 15 other blogs, and the other does, so I’m going more than half-way and nominating eight.

Thanks to Studiotj/Roach59, and Micheline Walker for paying us this great honor.  Read the rest of this entry

The Respect Award

The “Respect Award” is a personal award, made by Robert Goldstein for fellow bloggers who consistently reach out to other bloggers, offer support, are kind, struggle to understand differences in people, and who treat themselves and other people with kindness and respect.  We Hold These Truths to Be Self Evident/Blackbutterfly7, has received the Respect Award from Horty of It is What it Is.  Thank you, my dear friend.  I am honored. This award is very special.

You can choose to copy the Award Picture and give the award to the people who have earned your respect or you can do nothing. This is a way of saying thank you. I am truly honored to receive this award and it gives me joy to pay it forward.

Power of Words Award

Barbara of Idealisticrebel created the Power of Words Award and nominated Blackbutterfly7. This is a humbling honor that words cannot describe. In presenting the award, Barbara wrote:

I have designed this award because so many feel they can’t change the world. They can. You can. Your words, your blog can educate, raise awareness, change opinions and raise spirits. Through your blog you are reaching people you may never have effected any other way.

So this is for all who click away on the computer with a heart full of love, kindness, compassion and caring. For all of you who write to correct wrongs and injustices. For all of you who work to bring light into our world and hope to people’s lives. You are all heroes in my book. Please accept this heart-felt award and pass it on to those in your WordPress family who deserve it. Let’s keep it going for the entire year. May it inspire all with light, words, and love for the human family.

You all know how much I hate rules, so please just:

  • post the award on your blog

  • thank the person who gave it to you

  • pass it on to those whom you deem worthy

  • let your nominees know

Awards – Holiday Presents


Blackbutterfly7 has been nominated for three awards.  Rather than posting them separately, I am accepting and paying all three forward in this post.

Kev is giving away Christmas presents, nominating his entire Word Press community.  Along with Kev, Petrel41 has nominated Blackbutterfly7 for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

The rules:

  • Pick your award (s)
  • Share it/them and this post with your blogging community
  • Promote one blogger by sharing a link to their website and at least one way in which they have been an inspiration to you this year.


I’m paying this forward to Dr. Rex. Her heart is an inspiration, and she has inspired me with her commitment. I can barely post 3 times a week, but Dr. Rex is committed to posting several times a day, and her posts to start the day are truly inspirational.

Barbara nominated Blackbutterfly7 for  The Harmony & Peace Award. Barbara says of the award:

I created this new award to celebrate all those who promote Harmony & Peace, and who add Love & Beauty to the world through their Blogs and through their lives.  Their Positivity makes the world a better place for all of us.

Bloggers Who Care, Community Heart Award

Bloggers who care

Kev has nominated Blackbutterfly7 for the “Bloggers Who Care, Community Heart Award.” Horty also nominated Blackbutterfly7 for the same. I thank both of them. It’s an honor.

A very talented man, Kev wrote in making the award:

“This award is one I made myself for All members of my community. You deserve it and I love you all.”

I love you too, Kev.

In the past 4 months, the number of subscribers to Blackbutterfly7 has grown. I’ve not yet been able to visit all of the blogs of new subscribers yet, and for that I apologize.  I see you, and thank you for following and your support. Read the rest of this entry

Wonderful Team Readership Award


Blackbutterfly7 has been awarded the “Wonderful Team Member Readership Award” by our friend Coach Muller of Good Time Stories.

(Addition:)  As I was going through other award nominations, I found where our dear friend Horty also nominated Blackbutterfly7 for this award.  Here’s thanking her as well.

Coach Muller blogs stories that make my heart smile, and some that cause me to deeply reflect.   Thanks for the award, Coach. I am deeply honored and grateful.

Reading the blogs that I follow is why I always seem to be late visiting some of them. I truly want to read what they have written. But, this award is not just about the blogs that I read. For me, it’s also about those bloggers who read here. In selecting nominations, I kept that in mind. Read the rest of this entry

Semper Fidelis Award


Thank you to Dr. Rex (Horty) of It Is What It Is for this award that signifies loyalty and love between friends.  I am honored that Horty considers me  worthy of this award and as her friend.Friendship1

In the words of this Award’s creator:

The Semper Fidelis Award

“I created this award because I wanted to do something special for my friends on WordPress. Semper Fidelis is Latin and means “Always Loyal.” Loyalty means the world to me. I am very loyal myself, but I’ve got major trust issues as well. And I think trust is very important if you are sharing so much of yourself with people you meet through the internet. So I am working on that!

Why the wolves? Because wolves have very strong ties with their pack. Like a family or a great group of friends. And I just love them!”

This award stands for the loyalty and love between friends. Read the rest of this entry
