Thankful Thursday (And Lotsa Link Love)

Thankful Thursday (And Lotsa Link Love)

A Thursday morning reflection on things I am thankful for:

* Blogathon 2011. No doubt about it! What an amazing month May was… I met my goal, posting every day, and have no intention of stopping now. So many lovely, interesting, talkative people have visited my site and joined in the conversation; let’s keep it going!

The thanks go primarily to Michelle Rafter of Word Count who organizes this event every year. I’ve been a faithful reader of Michelle’s posts for the last couple of years but only this year braved the Blogathon. It has been such a rewarding experience that you can be sure I’ll sign up again next year! Won’t you join me?

Over this past month, I have met some incredible bloggers through their pages. I’m going to roll Thankful Thursday and Link Love all into one today because I just have to share their work with you. I’ve signed up for all of their feeds and encourage you to do the same:

Tia Bach’s Depression Cookies

Kristi Bernard’s The Neophyte Writer

Sheila Callahan

Pavithra Kodmad’s Pages

Alison Law’s Lawthenticity

Liz Sheffield’s Motherlogue

Lisa Tabachnik Hotta’s Kids and Mental Health

Laura Tokie’s In My Little Town

Jan Udlock’s Imp3rfect Mom

Jennifer Willis

Oh, and don’t forget the ones I featured here on writing, here on food and here on travel for the past three weeks. I know, it’s a lot of reading, but it’s worth it. 😉

  1. Thanks for including me on your Link Love. I am following most of these and will quickly sign up for the rest. I’ve enjoyed your blog, especially Thankful Thursdays, and I feel thankful to Michelle Rafter for hooking us all up. I’ve never had so many blind dates go well at once. 😉 And I look forward to continuing her guest post blog exchange idea (and may even try my hand at a Haiku every now and again!).

  2. Lisa, I’m flattered to be a part of this list. I am thankful for the Blogathon and all the great people that we’ve met. We will definitely stay in touch. Best, Alison

  3. Hi there!

    Are you going to blog about your prize, too? Thank you for including me. I miss you and the rest of the above gang…I’m trying to stay away from my blog just for a few days…and it’s not going well.

    Grab your I did it badge, too.

    • Tia — Love the image of blind dates for how us bloggers met! Turned out incredibly well, didn’t it?

      Alison — Yes, we will certainly stay in touch. I look forward to our post swap in a couple of weeks!

      Jan — I scheduled this post last week before I had any idea I’d win a Blogathon prize! Once I have the details on Jane Boursaw’s classes I will definitely talk about it here. Here’s hoping we can all get thru Blogathon withdrawal in the meantime! 😉

  4. Hi again, Name Sharing Blogger. Thank you for the link love. There’s a “c” missing from the end of my name. Don’t worry, it happens all the time. Enjoy your summer. We will be in touch whether by blog, email, phone or in person. Ciao. Shalom. Bon Journee. Good-Bye. Arivaderci.

  5. Thanks so much for the mention!
