Thankful Monday!

Thankful MondayFew of my blogging friends have a special day where they gather a handful of other blog posts that they’ve found interesting, and refer such blogs to their readers.

Doing so accomplishes two things. 1- it’s an excellent and easy way to create content to your blog, and 2- It’s a way to give back to other bloggers which content you enjoy.

I do not have such post series, yet, but maybe next year.

Today, however, I wanted to thank a handful of people who have been nice enough to have mentioned me and my posts, not once, but several times.  Because of them I have noticed new comments on my blog, and it’s always so nice to see that some people have enjoyed your content enough to talk about it and share it on their own blog.

I also want to apologize for having being so late this past week in replying to comments and being behind visiting those who have visited me.  3 weeks ago I wrote about 20+ ways to promote your blog and even though I haven’t done what I mentioned on the post to the fullest, it already has increased my traffic. Thus, the reason for being so late.

So, for this special thankful Monday, I wanted to thank four women and one man for their generosity towards me.

Here is what they’ve done…

adrienne_smith (1)Adrienne Smith

I know Adrienne is so used to be on top of lists. But this is no accident, guys, it’s because she talks the talk and walks the walk.

I landed on Adrienne’s blog in September 2011 (yes, I even remember that). I had heard of her by another blogger friend, Barry Wells, and I’ve never stopped going to her blog ever since.

I don’t think I’ve missed a blog post of hers in almost 2 years, but I know that she can say the same thing about me blogs. Adrienne’s been on all my posts in all my blogs for a while now.

We’ve gotten to know each other above and beyond blogging. We’ve spoken on the phone a few times, and we communicate through email or Facebook on a regular basis.  We also belong to a common Google Hangout group where we meet each week.

Just a year ago, almost to the day, Adrienne invited me to be a guest blogger on her blog.  I was very happy and honored to write that guest post. Who doesn’t want to be on Adrienne’s blog?

More recently she was nice enough to have mentioned me twice on her Tankful Thursday series.  You can check her Past Thankful Thursday here, and this previous one as well.

I have to admit that Adrienne Smith has been very good to me. She’s featured me more than I would ever thought over this past couple of years. This is my way to say, thank you, Adrienne.

Of course, I have mentioned her several times too. You can read my interview of her right here.

carol-lynn-rivera (2)Carol Lynn Rivera

I met Carol a little while later, but it was easy to notice her, because like Adrienne, once she started coming to my blogs, she was a regular on all of them and her comments were always interesting to read.

The first time I hoped over to her blog, I realized instantly that she was a writer.  I’ve always loved her style and I often laugh out loud at the way she explains things.  She often uses metaphors and examples that are fun to read.  Her style is never boring, and you can tell that what she writes is always very well researched. I’ve learned a lot from her.

She’s got a team of writers on her blog, including her husband, but I admit I enjoy her style the best.

Two weeks ago, the same week Adrienne mentioned one of my recent posts on her Thankful Thursday, Carol mentioned me on her Weekend Roundup.

Wow, was I surprised to be mentioned twice that same week on those two great blogs!

Carol has also mentioned one of my posts before on her Weekend Roundup series back in April.  I have also interviewed Carol back in June of 2012.  If you want to give it a read, she gives great writing tips on that interview.

So, for all of that, thank you Carol. I am so glad we met on the blogging sphere.

Donna Merrill (1)Donna Merrill

I met Donna a little while after Carol, and just like Carol and Adrienne, she became a regular to my blogs ever since.  Donna always gives me the best compliments on her comments, and that really makes me feel good, I tell you.

I was fortunate enough to be the guest of one of the few video interviews that she conducted last year with her husband David. That video interview is posted on my about me page.

Writing this post, makes it obvious to me that I have something in common with each one of this ladies. With Donna it’s personal development.  That’s why I interviewed Donna over at my personal development blog last year.  If you want to know her better, you can go read it right here.

She has also invited me to guest post on her blog over a year ago.

Donna and I have also spoken over the phone once and got to know each other better. We also belong to a weekly common hangout.

I’ve just asked Donna to be my guest on my personal development blog, and it’s so fresh that I haven’t received her reply yet, but either way, I wanted to thank you Donna for being such a good supporter of my blogs and promoting me.

Sue J PriceSue Price

Shortly after Donna I met Sue through blogging as well.  Like the other ladies mentioned above, since Sue and I met she pretty much became a regular of all my blogs.

Sue is a successful entrepreneur. She had several successful businesses in Australia where she lives, and she worked as the CEO of some of her companies.

Sue was nice enough to have mentioned me a few times her posts, and I was her guest on her blog earlier this years, when life got in the way, and she found it difficult to post on her blog at that time.

That’s why it’s so important to build relationships online.  If you have a blog and don’t try to build relationships with other bloggers you’re really missing out.

I also recently asked Sue to be my guest on my personal development blog, and she just accepted. I am so glad to have her there soon.

Sue and I belong to a common Google hangout group as well. And we see each other over computer screen each week, even though she lives all the way in Australia. Thank you Sue, for being such a good friend.

Seth Layton (1)Seth Layton

Seth is a cool young man whom I met a few years back when I was a member of an affiliate tutorial program named Wealthy Affiliate.

At the time I had written several writing tutorials, and he read them before I even knew who he was. It’s only later that he told me that he had learned a lot about writing from me. This sounded so sweet to my ears.

Today, Seth Layton is an internet marketing savvy guy, and he’s very good at creating sites, pages and content as well. I know he has written many articles on different article directories and other sites.

Recently he totally surprised me with a page that he made just for me to promote my freelance writing business. I was not expecting it, and it was such a nice surprise.

Seth has also been a guest blogger on this blog several times.

I have helped many people back in my Wealthy Affiliate membership days, but none ever thanked me as much as Seth Layton has.  So, today it’s my turn to say, thank you Seth!


There you have it!  I wanted to take the time of a blog post to thanks this handful of people who have gone above and beyond in supporting me as a blogger and as a friend.  Thank you so much guys!

  1. Hello Sylviane,

    Glad to be here and add that yes, these are some wonderful people I have come to know through my blogging journey as well. I have come to know about their blogs, benefit from them and connect with them on social channels.

    And like you said, they are always kind enough to add a few words of encouragement to you and help you anyway they can. Great bloggers to associate with.

    Happy Monday to you 🙂

    1. Hi Kumar,

      I know you are one of the newest people coming to my blogs, and I hope to know you better. I am better at commenting for the most part, but these couple of weeks have been crazy for me, and that happened as my traffic increased too. I’ve been drowning under comments which is a very good thing, but I feel so bad when I can reply fast enough 🙂

      Well, at least I’ve got you soon here 🙂

      Have a wonderful Monday too!

  2. Hi Sylviane!

    I first want to give you a big thanks for including me in this post! I am honored.

    I love to promote your blog because you are writing to help others. Things just don’t get better than that. And Yes, I just received your message and will write a guest post for you. I am honored for that too.

    I know everyone here except Seth….Have to go over and see what he is all about. I just went to the page he has done for you and it is great! There are so many people out there that need a professional writer. Some like to pull one out of a hat on fiverr and oh boy….gotta be careful with that one!

    Your reputation Sylviane precedes you! You have written so much and also teach us the ins and outs of writing. I am a fan of that! I always like to recommend you when someone complains to me that they do not have time or just cannot write! Now, I’ve bookmarked the page Seth has made you and all I have to do is go over there and link it! I’m sure glad you mentioned him.

    A big thank you

    1. Hi Donna,

      Yeah, so you’ve accepted my guest post invitation? I haven’t even been back to the message to see you answer yet 🙂

      Sometimes it feels really good to write about others and what they’ve done for you and how much they encouraged you over time.

      Thank you so much, Donna, for promoting me 🙂

      I didn’t link Seth’s site because he’s still working on it, but in time I sure will give him back what he gave me.

      You’re very welcome, Donna and thank you for being you 🙂

  3. Oh wow Sylviane, you had me tearing up here girl! I’m SO touched by all the nice things you said about me.

    Gosh, I’m just so glad we met and we built up that relationship. You’re such a gem and I’ve also learned so much from you and I enjoy reading all of your blogs.

    As you know we have so much in common but we would have never known that about each other had we not taken the time to get to know one another. I admire your work and I’m always so eager to share great content with my readers and introduce them to people that I think they should be paying attention to as well. So you are very welcome and it’s my pleasure.

    As you know, I know all of these ladies but haven’t had the opportunity but to see Seth a couple of times. You’ve spoken so highly of him though and how can he not applaud your work and learn from you. I think that’s wonderful of him to be so generous to have created that page to support your work. Bravo Seth!

    Thank you again Sylviane for sharing these amazing bloggers with us and for including me on this fabulous list. I’m so very touched and I think we had the same idea today! I love that!

    Enjoy your week and talk to you later.

    Adrienne invites you to read..5 Bloggers That I AdmireMy Profile

    1. Yes, we had the same idea today, Adrienne. Kindred spirits 🙂 When I saw your post this morning I said wow!

      As I was just telling Donna right above, sometimes it feels good to talk about people who have touched you in more ways than they know. I’m so glad I’ve met you guys.

      Just by mentioning just a little bit about each of you I had my post made for today. How cool is that?

      Thank you for coming, Adrienne, and I’m sorry I made you cry 🙂

  4. Hey Sylviane,

    Well, I know all of these bloggers, all thanks to Adrienne (except for Seth. I have seen him written here a few times).

    First I came upon her blog, and then through her comments, I came to your blog and many other blogs that I am regularly commenting on right now.

    I can’t say that I don’t understand the power of relationships. I really do. It is indeed amazing 😉 (Of course, we have to handle it all very well. Relationships are tricky to handle…but it is much easier in the online world :D).

    Anyways, I hope you have a great week ahead 🙂

    1. Hi Jeevan,

      I certainly appreciate your coming here regularly. Believe me it’s noticed. Today was my way of saying thank you to some amazing people. I know you know all these ladies 🙂

      Thank you for coming, and have a wonderful week!

  5. Thank you for the kind words, Sylviane! I always appreciate your blogs and lately I have been having a lot of fun on your French blog. You mentioned some very wonderful and lovely ladies here. These are all people who know the value of making friends and keeping them. It’s an honor to be listed here among them 🙂

  6. Great post Sylviane,

    Of course, being a blogger in the same circles, I know 3 of these ladies very well, but will make it a point to get to know the others. I’ve had Carol come to my blog a few times, but don’t know her so well and I don’t know the young gentleman at all although I know you’ve spoken very highly of him on a number of occasions.

    I’ll definitely reach out to them and get to know them as they come highly recommended. Thanks for your Thankful Monday recommendations. It’s a great way to be introduced to new people.

    Barbara Charles invites you to read..Who Do You Follow on Twitter?My Profile

    1. Hi Barbara,

      Yes, of course you know those 3 ladies well.

      Carol is a very smart lady. She used to be a teacher and is now a web developer with her husband. And man, do they sound like they know about their business. I’m very impressed with them and with the content of their blog.

      Seth is a very smart guys and knows so much about the internet and creating sites and stuff. That young man studied his head off you can tell.

      There are so many cool people to get to know better 🙂

      Thanks for coming.

  7. Hi Sylviane, I truly am flattered that you’d include me alongside those other women. I’ve been thinking about & working on my website quite a bit since I’ve been last blogging on your website. I pm’ed you on Facebook about how I’m sort of doing it now with my website. I bought this beautiful theme called Pen & Paper over at about 4 days ago for the version for my topics area. It’s pretty awesome. It’s a Parallax theme. It cost me $37 for the WordPress version (through Paypal).

    I’ve been talking to quite a few people at work about my website, and how I’m going to give out cards to everybody when it’s completely done. I will most definitely write blog posts on my main URL, and advertise for your business. I enjoy being able to help my friends, and create mutual beneficiaries. Creating a basic, very appealing, & professional website using your name (like you’ve done) is the way to go in my opinion. I also greatly appreciate your post over 25 ways to promote blog posts, because I’ll use that as one of my major guides to how I’ll promote each of my blog posts.

    I was reading some of the comments above, and noticed a few of your followers mentioned they barely knew me, or didn’t have the chance to meet me. I’d definitely like to get to know Sue, Donna, Carol, & Adrienne better. Thanks again for including me in this post, seriously. Please keep me updated on Facebook or through your website regularly with how you’re doing. Take care Sylviane.

    1. It’s my pleasure Seth!

      You’ve done a lot of nice things for me, so this is pay back 🙂

      Yes, you see, none of those ladies know you, so now you need to make yourself known.

      I can’t wait to see your site all finished and rolling. I’m sure it will be great!
      I know you’ll keep me in touch 🙂

  8. Sylviane, what a great group of people, the only one I don’t know is Seth. It always amazes me how relationships can form via blogging and being online daily with fellow bloggers. It’s great when we can help each other out and share. Thanks for sharing your recommendations and have a great week ahead Sylviane.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      That’s right, I think that’s amazing too. We meet people in a non-physical world, but great friendships are being born through blogging. For sure, this wasn’t possible in the past, before the internet.

      Thanks for dropping by, Lisa 🙂

  9. Hi Sylviane,

    I like that you are trying to help others through the medium of writing.
    I’m grateful to have recently found your blog and those of the wonderful people you have featured here, and now through this post, to discover two others, Carol and Seth, whom I had not heard of.

    I look forward to learning more about you in the days ahead as well and to reading, learning and enjoying your posts.

    Kind Regards,

    1. Hi Bill,

      I love to put others on the forefront when I can, because it’s easier to put others than oneself 🙂

      The more you visit blogs the more you’ll meet new people. That’s what I love about this. Meeting new people and building interesting relationships.

      Hope to get to know you more as well 🙂 Thanks for coming.

  10. Hello Sylviane
    Great post on “Thankful Monday”.
    As you know I know three of the people you’ve mentioned.
    They are awesome who love to help others by writing great content.

    I will check out Ms. Rivera and the young man, when he gets his site running.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Galdys,

      I’m glad that I could introduce new people to some bloggers who come here.

      Carol writes about online business, internet, social media, writing, and more related topics. She writes very well and you’ll learn a lot from her.

      Seth, should have his site up soon. He’s very excited about it, so we’ll see what he comes up with 🙂

      Thank you for coming, Gladys.

  11. Hi Sylvianne,
    It’s nice to know good people that help us do things. Saying thank you somehow is also important to keep in touch with those who ever help us.

    Thanks for sharing your thankful Monday, it’s inspired me 🙂

  12. Hi Sylviane, these indeed are trusted friends in the industry, they are fast becoming household names in the blogosphere. They have helped a lot of us to do things the right way. I so much appreciate them.

    1. Hi there,

      Yes, those are becoming household names, you’re right. And that’s not for nothing, those people really know what their doing each one in their own niche.

  13. Hi SylvianeI apologize for being late here. Last week I had a crazy week and did not make my rounds. Thank you for including me and for the kind words. I am both honored and flattered :-)I know everyone here except Seth so thanks for introducing him to us. I love that idea of mentioning other bloggers too. I know Adrienne does it regularly so I must also do that. I am looking forward to being your guest very soon. And again Sylviane I was so grateful when you were my guest when Dad died this year. I guess we all have times in our lives when things happen and we do not function in a normal way :-). Can you believe that is just over 6 months ago now? Thanks again for including me here Sylviane. Have a great week.Sue

    1. Not a problem, Sue. I didn’t want to tell you, but I ended up having the feeling that you had no clue still.

      Yes, it’s interesting that I’ve posted this just the week you’ve been so busy, but it’s all good, you’ve still got here 🙂

  14. Hi Sylviane,

    What a crew of networking wizards! I must say, other than Seth, I know each person well and have followed them for years. All winners, and I am looking forward to meeting Seth now 😉

    Thanks for sharing!
