This Thursday we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the U.S. So this week, we’re featuring seven posts from around the web that put the spotlight on the holiday, how it’s been impacted in modern times, and giving thanks.
Why: Has the Thanksgiving holiday become less significant in today’s fast-paced, consumer-driven society? Laura Click explores this trend in her Thanksgiving post from last year.
Why: What are you thankful for? In this classic post, Jay Baer gets us started with a list of the things he is most grateful for.
Why: Planning and executing your online marketing strategy can seem overwhelming. In this still relevant guest post for Top Rank Marketing, Ashley Zeckman uses the components of a traditional Thanksgiving meal to illustrate how you can make your strategy manageable.
Why: In this very personal WUL post from 2010, I take a look at what, for me, makes Thanksgiving remarkable.
Why: Thanksgiving marks the start of the holiday season. In this guest post for Jeff Bullas, Aida Gadzo shares some creative Facebook contest ideas.
Why: Grattitude shouldn’t be isolated to one day a year. In this Harvard Business Review post that still rings true today, Ron Ashkenas demonstrates how appreciation can drive organizational and individual improvement.
I’m grateful for many, many things, and very grateful for you. Thank you for being part of the WUL community, and a blessed Thanksgiving to our U.S. community from me and mine.
