Thinking about Thought-Provoking Thursday :)

by SomeGirl on November 9, 2011 · 23 comments

Have I ever told you the reason for thought-provoking Thursday?

Let me start by saying that I’m a sucker for alliterations.

When I started this blog I had a lot of thoughts to share (the main reason for starting a blog, right?) and I liked the idea of causing others to think… Then my good blogging buddy, Michelle of So, I Married a Mennonite (the same Michelle who encouraged me to buy the snapseed app mentioned in yesterday’s post… She’s pretty influential), encouraged me to make it a link up to let others come to share their thoughts.


I loved the idea but was nervous about opening it up and not having anyone join along.

Now, sometime later, I am thrilled each Thursday to have so many great bloggers link up their wonderful thoughts!

But, lately I’ve been wondering about you guys, my sweet readers…

I’m curious if you like thought-provoking Thursdays? Do you find good things to read from others? Do you think it’s helpful to have extra posts linked up at the bottom of this post? Do you love it, hate it, notice it, care about it?

This is what I’ve been thinking about for a couple of weeks now… sorry it’s not super deep today, but I’d LOVE to hear YOUR thoughts on thought-provoking Thursday. Would you please take a minute to let me know what you think/how you feel? I’d REALLY appreciate it! Thanks!

I love Thought-Provoking Thursday, Michelle! I appreciate the variety of types of posts. If I ever need something inspirational or simply thought-provoking, it’s the first place I look. My only regret is that I don’t have time to read as many of the awesome posts as I’d like.

Michelle

I love it. ALL of it. I always love your part of the post, and I love having this huge resource to browse through after others link up. And, when I get around to having a decent post, it’s fun to link up and share my own thoughts. :)

How did I not know that the other ‘other michelle’ was the one who encouraged you to do a linky? Fun!

I look forward to Thursdays on you blog. I always find something that challenges me :)

I like Thought Provoking Thursday – at first because it gave me a chance to link up my posts, as those are the kind of posts I tend to write the most! And with link ups it means that you can find the people’s blogs who you are most likely to read. But I have also found some good posts and people to follow on twitter or RSS feed through the links here. So thank you for hosting it!

I love any linkup–but one reason I love this one is there aren’t as many recipes :). Not that recipes are bad, but so many linkups seem to be dominated by them! These are always quite interesting. So thank you!

I stumbled upon your site a couple weeks ago due to Thought-Provoking Thursday and I’m so thankful. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for — thought-provoking content. Every link I’ve clicked on has been worth it and you do such a great job getting my thought process started :)

I look forward to it every week – your post and the other ones here. I like the challenge that this link up gives me in writing my own Thursday post. You can “go deep” or just say something simple and helpful. This is a great link up :)

Lauren

Definitely a love! I find I have so much swirling around in my brain, thoughts and desires of things to share with others, having something like this helps me to focus it and get it done! I don’t always have time to check others’ out, but I am always blessed when I do. Thanks for hosting us!

I haven’t had much opportunity to participate lately, but I love your Thought-Provoking Thursdays. It does make me think. And you always have great topics. So thank you! Blessings to you my friend!

Love it and the opportunity to link up! :)

I love the link up! It is so encouraging to read other’s thoughts and I always love finding new blogs to read. I don’t always have time to check out all of the links, but I always check out at least a couple. Thanks for this linky party each week, Michelle! :)

I enjoy it! I don’t always link up, since I think some of my posts are really that “thoughtful” – but I really enjoy visiting all the others that link up :) Would LOVE it if you kept it up!!

I just recently found your blog and this is my first time to link up on Thought Provoking Thursday, but so far, I like what I see. So, one thumbs up here!

I love the link. To be honest, the last month I have not been around as I have been overseas but I normally link up. Sometimes I read more posts than others but always try to read a few!

I totally love it, don’t quit! It is so good for us as a community of bloggers! Thanks so much, Michelle.

Hi Michelle,
Sunday morning, in the lobby of the Sheraton, in PA, right after Relevant ended, you and I met in the the lobby. We were all waiting to go home, who would have thought that the blessings of Relevant would continue at such a normal mundane moment. I enjoyed meeting you.

You have a great blog, and I will def visit again.

Thought provoking Thursday looks great, I can’t wait to join in.

Till next time,
Amanda
