Being Thankful for the Little Things

Posted on October 14, 2013

We’re always talking about how to expand your audience, grow your social media presence and generate more traffic.

Bigger is better and more is more. And if you’re not improving, you’re not successful.

But what about taking a moment to appreciate what you already have?

Today is Thanksgiving in Canada which serves as the perfect opportunity to pose the following question: What are you thankful for when it comes to your blog or online project?

Growth on the web is, by its very nature, erratic. Things may take a while to get started and then explode or simply grow at a slow and steady pace month after month.

The one thing that’s certain is that your blog was not the same blog six months or one year ago.

So what are you happy about right now?

Got a favorite post that received a considerable amount of interest recently? Fantastic!

Managed to bump your Twitter following up to a hundred? Awesome!

Stuck to your posting schedule for the past three months? Brilliant!

The more you get caught up in comparing subscribers, comments or page views, the less likely you are to celebrate the small wins.

Thanksgiving provides a great excuse to really reflect on what you love about your blog and what you’re grateful to have accomplished.

What is it that you’re thankful for?

    Love it. I’am grateful for the health of myself, husband and children.
    I am grateful for all the opportunities presenting where I can learn, grow and become a better person.

    I am grateful for the free sun, rain, and fresh air to feel energised and the grow plants which will feed us. 🙂

    Life is Tremendous!!!!!

    Happy Thanksgiving. I give thanks for my opportunity to have been able to raise a very insightful and amazing daughter who is currently giving thanks in Canadaland.

Got something to say?
