What are we thankful for?Written by Lisa Renee Ward | | firstname.lastname@example.org
With the theme of Thanksgiving still in my head, I set out to find out what people on the blogosphere are thankful for. In Technorati as I sat down to pen this column, 66,382 blog posts referenced the word “thankful”. What follows is some of those…
The Blue Panther Experience takes being thankful on one day a year to a whole different level with their “Count your blessings Sunday” blog theme that invites bloggers all over the world to take a few moments one day a week to share what they are thankful for.
If you need help discovering how thankful you are? Then there is this handy quiz that you can take that will do just that. How Thankful Are You comes with the handy dandy html code that you can place on your blog to let your readers know just where you rank up. Or if you don’t have a blog? You’ll still know how you compare, I was 88% thankful.
Over at Monday Morning Power where “It’s all about Attutide" there is a very thought provoking post that points out how friendships are created and can become very important on the internet. A topic many people are thankful for.
Religion and the concept of being thankful go hand and hand for many people, from Stray Thoughts there is a very thorough post that lists some suggested areas of Bible study that relate to being thankful. Barbara who is the creator of the blog provides a regular focus on the topic of religion and life.
Tammy shares from her blog, Family Doin’s something her family has done in the past on this Thanksgiving holiday. They create what is called a “Thankful Tree”, where family members write what they are thankful for on a cut out of a leaf and is used to decorate the a picture of a tree. I think this would work for many family events beyond Thanksgiving.
Then there are those that believe Thanksgiving is not considered to be a religious holiday, as evidenced by this historical based piece on Religion Facts. This piece focuses on the tradition of “thanksgivings” as being one more of the differences between the North and the South as far as culture.
Here in Toledo the recent third place award has created many moments of thankfulness, one of which can be read on Toledo Tobaggan. It’s one of the more creative interpretation’s I’ve read about what transpired in London.
