Exponential Gratitude

It’s Sunday, and I’m taking the Sabbath off with the fam. Normally wouldn’t post, but figured a note of gratitude would be in keeping with the Spirit of the day.

Thank you, Chicago Public Library, for reposting Confessions of a Bibliophile on your Facebook and Twitter feeds this past week. The traffic generated boosted this post into the top 12 for this site (see the list in the right sidebar).

Likewise, when folks shared The Tale of Two Heifers last week, or empathetic parents shared Club MOB, or fed-up citizens shared How the Government Can Save $3.14 Million This Year, those posts secured spots in the top 12.

And who could forget when the agricultural community embraced Milk Wars? It was number one until WordPress featured I Like My Bike on Freshly Pressed.

In fact, every post on the top 12 list has one thing in common: each was shared with others by readers who liked what they read here.

This will come as no surprise to the social media savvy. But to those of us who are still learning the ropes, the exponential power of social media is astounding. The term viral is apt.

Like something you see? Share it with others who might like it too. That’s how the community grows.

Speaking of community, heartfelt thanks goes out to Southern Guilford, spread now from coast to coast. Your response to Indian Summer makes me doubly homesick. I’m grateful to have grown up where I did when I did.

So thank you, readers, whoever and wherever you are for reading, commenting and sharing. I hope you enjoy your time here as much as I do.

And most importantly, thank you, God, for Your many blessings to us all, in spite of our failings, each and every day.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. See you back here soon.

Praise the LORD, my soul,
and forget not all His benefits—
Who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
Who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:2-5 NIV

Thank You, Boyz II Men. Man, these guys can sing.

  1. Today marks my 1 month of being on WordPress. I found you just a day or two afterwards and signed up right then and there to receive your wonderful post by email so I did not miss a thing. As soon as I figured out how to list on the blogroll, I was proud to enter your blog’s url. Because, I, like the Chicago Public Library, knows a good thing when they see it. Congratulations Aimee
