Today I wanted to share with you our friend Terry Kate's very thoughtful idea in the spirit of being thankful. Each November she hosts "A Month of Thanks." Each day she gives away books - mostly of the romance genre as that is her niche. But this isn't a typical giveaway. You don't leave a comment to win something for yourself. You leave a comment nominating someone else you would like to give the book to as a sign of appreciation. Then the author donating that day's book will decide who to give it to.
In addition, Terry Kate has also worked very hard in her never ending network of cool people to arrange for grocery giveaways throughout the month. A way to help out those in need during this challenging economy. What a terrific token of thanks that will be. Pop over to Romance In The Backseat all month long to take part in the giveaways.
All of these ideas got me to wondering how many ways there are to express our thanks to one another. Do we do it enough? How about online? Do we have a responsibility to be thankful bloggers? What ways can we show our thanks in the blogosphere? Does it carry over to the real world? What types of things do we appreciate each other for anyway? So many questions. Come chat all about it with us on our next monthly Bumble Town live chat on Friday, the 19th at 8:30PM ET. And if you'd like an e-mail reminder about the chat just let me know.
