Be Thankful Blogfest

Your Thanksgiving Inventory

November!  Instead of doing a list of goals for writing, I decided to do something else this month.... and for the first time, I challenge you to do the same!

Have you ever stopped to take an inventory of your blessings?  Watch this little clip below.

Blessings... I definitely don't think I take the time to thank God for my blessings and I really do have a lot of blessings.  I need to take my Thanksgiving Inventory.  So, that's what November is about!  Instead of focusing on "I need to buy presents and make sure that I've got a list prepared for everyone who wants to buy me a gift", I am going to be thankful for what I've got.


1.  Post one (or more) blog posts about what you are thankful for.  I encourage you to do one a week for the month of November to help you remember what you are thankful for.  (see below)
2.  Link your post in the comments below so I and others can read it. :)
3.  Share this challenge with a friend to see if they can think of something to be thankful for!
4.  Enjoy the thankful Turkey image and add him to your post!

Here are the topics for each week of November -
Week One - A person you are thankful for
Week Two - A gift (talent) you are thankful for
Week Three - List of ten random things you are thankful (this is the post you can be thankful for pizza or chocolate) and why you are thankful for them
Week Four - The thing you are most thankful for in your life (it can be another person, a place or anything else that you can think of)

Does that sound fun?  Did I mention that there is a prize for the person that is most thankful?  Okay, there's not a prize, but you might get at least one new follower (Me, if I'm not already following you) and you really get to enjoy the month of November!

Go ahead and let me know in the comment section if you want to participate!  Tune back in tomorrow for my Week One post about a person that I am thankful for. :)



  1. This is a wonderful idea for a blogfest! Sounds like a lot of fun and meaningful as well.

  2. You know, blessings tend to be taken for granted. It's good to sit down once in a while and take stock. It can be shocking how much "inventory" we actually have...and so much more to come.

  3. What a great fall blog idea!!
