Little Things Thursday

Hello Friends! Welcome to Little Things Thursday! If I’m not mistaken, we are now into our 4th year of sharing our lives with each other here! It’s really humbling to see how this community has grown and changed over these last 3 years.  Thank you all for being here each week and being part of a sweet community! I sort of lost track of the time, but did not want to miss thanking you for the time you take to be here. Truth told, I can’t remember the exact date Little Things Thursday began, but it’s been a honor having you here! It’s amazing to see how we have all grown in life and in our photography.

So, off we go into another year of sharing!

For all the new folks, I thought it would be a good idea to just take a moment to say hello and share what this community is all about. Little Things Thursday’s primary purpose is to share those little moments happening in our lives that we want to document for posterity. I love having memories documented to reflect the good of daily life. There are always challenges, hurts, and struggles in life, but there are many blessings, as well.  That’s what this linky is all about: finding the good and capturing it!

Capturing is part and parcel to what we are doing here! We want to see your world, not just in text, but in images! Each Thursday is a great time to display your growth in photography. Just show what you are working on! Just use whatever tools you have. There are no themes, which creates freedom and flexibility to align your posts to whatever is going on in your life.  You can share your crafts, your recipes, your children, your travel, your job, or your whatever! Just make sure that you include a photograph that you captured. No stock photos, please. 

May I share some tips for feeling more connected here? 

1. Link early. The earliest links get the most traffic. The link opens every Thursday at midnight.

2. Connect. Don’t link and run. Take the time to build community…and this community is awesome!  Short on time? Just try to reach a few fellow bloggers.

3. Be generous. Comments beget comments. Simply put, those who take time to comment get noticed and reciprocity from others. Be brave and go first.

4. Stay with the overall spirit of the party…i.e. sharing your life or endeavors with your photography.

5. Make it easy to comment on your blog. Too many hoops to leave a comment deters interaction. There are several blogs out there that I simply cannot leave a comment on due to having to register a password that I have already forgotten. I want to support you! Make it easy, folks!

6. See something that really resonates with you? Share it! Pin it! Tweet it! There are so many incredible people doing incredible things, so cheer them on!

Well, enough telling. Let’s get to showing. Here is to year 4!

    Yes, you’re right about the commenting process I know some hit the panic button, when they can’t find the comment form (it depends which theme one chooses at WordPress), but I sure hope you don’t have to sign back in (I also keep forgetting my own password (: )- if you have to, I like to know it!

  8. Wonderful advice on ways to make the link up work! I tend to try to visit and leave comments on every blog that links up. I know that is not the norm for most people…Usually they visit the one before them and the host… I love that image of Jasper and what an awesome environment to do homework! Congrats on the Anniversary of Little Things Thursday!

  11. The first thing I thought of once I came to your page is how happy and cheery it always is. I get a good feeling when I visit your space in the blogosphere and enjoy linking up with you each week. I love how you explained everything above about the little things in our lives, because it is the little things that count and matter most that we sometimes take for granted or simple just forget. Blogging helps me to appreciate the little things and showcase them with everyone each week. Thanks for giving us an outlet to share. 🙂
