In the holiday spirit of gratitude, I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all of the folks who share their knowledge and expertise online every day.
I’m thankful that I get to use WordPress for free, as well as many plugins because of the overwhelming generosity of the open-source community of developers. Because I enjoy all of the plugins I use, and more importantly, because my site depends on them, I show my gratitude by making a donation to the developer. Even a $5 dollar donation counts, and is a way to thank and encourage them.
I’m thankful that I can engage with folks from all over the globe every day via free services like Facebook, LinkedIn, G+ and Twitter. For all the trouble they can be sometimes, it’s easy to forget how uniquely they have changed the world, helped unite people in a cause, and spread news instantly to make us a global village.
I’m thankful to all of the bloggers who produce helpful content and share it freely. Every day I learn something that helps me and helps BlogAid become a better resource. And, I’m grateful for the wonderful relationships that have blossomed with folks I would likely never have had the pleasure of meeting in person. It only takes a moment to click a Like link or G+ button or add a short comment to foster that relationship and encourage them.
I’m thankful for all of the wonderful folks who read BlogAid and its social media posts! Your comments, Likes, retweets, and shares truly warm my heart because I know you have found the information helpful. I am blessed with very high quality readers and it is my goal to continue to only deliver the good stuff and to remain a trusted resource.
For me, being thankful is not just a state of being. It’s a verb that is not limited to just one day. But, this is the day we take to bring awareness to it in the U.S., so I hope you will accept these words as my way of showing how grateful I am to all of the online community.
