Those who say blogging is dead doesn’t know what they are talking about. WordPress people would have something to say about that. Blogging is life, blogging is a second religion, blogging is good. Right now its where I hang my social hat.
I am taking yet another Facebook break. I have discovered its hard to be yourself there and control who sees what you want to keep private. Yes, I know my blog is open for all to see but the one thing about my blog is that I pay for domain registration and the premium package through WordPress.com. It is important that I have total control over what I say, my content and even who sees these words.
My connections on Twitter and Instagram will not change. You can connect with both through the widgets on the right. Connect with me if you wish there.
Today in America its Thanksgiving and its a time of feasting, family, friends and hopefully fun. It’s a tradition that has spanned generations. People coming together to express what they are thankful for is the rule of the day.
Yes, this holiday is not without its baggage. Sure there are stories of mistreatment and anguish in recorded history. We cannot ignore those facts because it would not be respectful to those who have suffered.
However, we can remember the problematic stuff and forge a way forward that recognizes the best of what Thanksgiving can be. In the times in which we live its good to have something positive to say and to remember the good times in our lives.
For many, it’s hard to be thankful and that is where we can come in to help provide experiences that they can hold onto.
I believe this holiday is one of redemption and renewal for something good. Happy Thanksgiving to each of you, far and wide.
I do my best to comment on the posts of fellow bloggers. However, I follow a lot of blogs and its impossible to comment on all of them. Know if I like your post I acknowledge your contribution and if I can bring value in offering feedback I will do so. I take my connections and communication seriously and I value my friendships in blogging in the same manner. The lifeblood for a blogger is feedback.
Keep on blogging and if you haven’t posted in some time please take some time to get everyone up to speed on what’s going on in your world. Blogs are to be living and breathing documents. I can’t wait to comment and like what you have to say.
Before you can work smart you must work hard.
It’s November and there is a chill in the air and that’s just fine with me. Let’s see what you have in store for all of us.
Being human comes with many complications.
I tell my daughters…being a strong man includes being kind. That there’s nothing weak about kindness and compassion. There’s nothing weak about looking out for others.
