The excitement is growing; the 6th anniversary celebration of the Ten Things of Thankful begins in just one week! Actually, it will begin in slightly less than one week. For next week only, the link will open on Thursday night at 8 p.m. Mountain time, the same time that the Finish the Sentence Friday blog hop goes live with their link. Kristi of Finding Ninee contacted me earlier this week to ask if the TToT and FTSF could team up for the anniversary celebration, and of course I was delighted to say yes. Everyone is invited!

Fun fact: in the early days of the TToT, both Kristi and I were co-hosts. Because we had the same name, to keep things straight, I was known as K2. I can't remember who came up with the moniker, but it is indicative of the welcoming nature of the TToT community--a small blogger is made to feel like a mighty mountain of a writer.😊

Be sure to join us next week for the big celebration, and help spread the word! THANK YOU!!!!!

(And in the meantime, tell us what you are thankful for this week.)

Ten Things of Thankful: 5 Weeks Until 6 Years!

Once upon a time, June 8, 2013 to be exact, an English blogger with a poetic way with words invited the world to join her in a new blog hop: The Ten Things of Thankful. Lizzi nurtured the young blog, invited others to help her spread the word, and welcomed a motley group of bloggers, thus forming a community around the theme of thankfulness. 

As I read over Lizzi's first Ten Things of Thankful post, I saw that she envisioned the blog hop to be long-lasting. :-) We aren't quite to the 40 year anniversary yet, but in only 5 weeks, we will be at the 6 year anniversary. The Ten Things of Thankful has seen changes over the years. It started as Lizzi's brainchild, started with 8 co-hosts, then quickly grew to 10. After a few years, Lizzi handed the reins over to Josie Two Shoes. When Josie needed a break, I (Kristi of ThankfulMe) offered to open the blog hop door each week. 
I'm thankful for Lizzi and Josie Two Shoes. Without them, there wouldn't be a TToT. 

As the anniversary of the start of the TToT approaches, I hope that bloggers new and old will consider writing a post for the June 7, 2019 link up. Invite your friends and help spread the word! In the meantime, let us know what you are thankful for this week by linking up below. THANK YOU!!!!
