A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Blogging is just one piece of the huge social network out there in the blogosphere. Social media and apps of every rank and stripe is out in full force as well. So it was a real treat to attend The Gary Vaynerchuck event this evening at the University of Maryland where this very social media (Vayner Media based in NYC) and savvy guy pontificated on the use of these tools. He likes to say these media tools are the gateway to developing awareness and relationships that may eventually lead to some business. It was a lively crowd of about 1,000 fans all awed by this skinny dude that started selling baseball cards on the weekend as an early teen, then joined the family business in his late teens, The Wine Library, where his vision and "wild" marketing strategies took the business from 6 million dollars in sales to 60 million dollars in sales. A bonifide marketing guru for sure! I am thankful to share this night with Bill, Olivia, Don Tomoff, Liz Verrecchia and Chris Goodman!
