Richard, from The Future is Papier Mâché has included this blog in his Thank You Award, conceived of by Leanne Cole (http://leannecolephotography.com/), – it’s all explained well over on this post. The gist, as I see it, is to 1) Be grateful and 2 ) express that gratitude, and 3) follow the “rule” that you acknowledge the person who gave it to you.
I’m currently re-reading “The Diamond Cutter” a buddhist perspective on business and managing your life, so been thinking about gratitude lately.
Here’s the list of folks and their blogs that I will say a big thank you too! (Only a few right now, as for the time being, I’m focusing more on content production, less on content consumption – sounds a bit smarmy, but there you have it)
– Richard Guest’s The Future is Papier Mâché – photographs and fiction. Lots of great series. Many thanks also for your comments.
– Ann’s Jone’s Image, Object, Text insightful reviews thoughts about art, artists. She’s introduced me to several artists I didn’t know about and one of her comments gave me the idea to start a sub-series of cable drawings images.
– Streets of Salem – we haven’t actually interacted, but this blog moves me.
Keri Smith – Keri’s is a super well known blog. We also don’t know each other (although my comments have been approved). Many of her posts contain nuggets of gold.
A little shout out to my book club fans, Rebecca & CEO. They don’t have blogs 😦 but do deserve my gratitude. So does the whole book club really, whom I can safely bounce ideas off before they come to fruition.
No doubt this list will grow. If I was to include all who deserve my gratitude who are blogless, now there would be a list.
