Can you believe it’s been 16 years in a row doing this whole thankfulness exercise and contest? As I’ve been saying for the past few years, I don’t really post on this blog much these days, but we’ve gotta keep this tradition alive for as long as we can, right?
Even though only about half of Eric’s Tips readers are in the USA, I always say gratitude knows no boundaries!
I love keeping up with this tradition because it’s a chance for me to really appreciate all of you – my subscribers and customers. You’re the reason I’ve been able to run this business for so long.
So, first things first… a big thank you to YOU. I’m genuinely thankful for your support and for reading what I have to say. Whether you’re a newbie to our annual Thanksgiving contest or a veteran who’s been with us for all 16 years, your involvement means a lot. Thanks for being here!
As usual, I have a lot to be thankful for this year. I thank God for life and for all He has done for me.
I mentioned last year that we added a new family member through fostering. This continues to be a great journey, and I am so thankful for our youngest daughter, along with the rest of my awesome family.
My wife is an absolute rockstar of being the best wife, mom, and so much more. I’m so thankful for my better half.
In 2022, I rediscovered my love of fishing; a passion of my childhood and youth. In 2023, I took it to a new level. More days on the water, more places, more and bigger fish, and a constantly growing skillset. I’m truly thankful to have the ability and the opportunity to connect with nature and experience God’s creation in this way.
Here are a few videos from my fishing adventures this year…
My attempt to ice fish the highest lake in North America…
A video by a friend, as my wife and I joined him for some alpine fishing…
Another video from Lance, as we ice fished together a couple weeks ago…
Next, here is a freebie as a token of my appreciation.
(As promised, I removed the download link after a few days to keep the value for everyone. Be sure to stay subscribed to Eric’s Tips and download future bonuses right away!)
Now, it’s your turn! Here is the 16th annual Eric’s Tips Thanksgiving contest!
It’s a good thing to express your gratitude for what you’re thankful for. In fact, it’s been shown to have health benefits.
So once again, we are going to do a group exercise to demonstrate our thankfulness.
All you have to do is post a comment below saying something you’re thankful for. It could even be just a few words. There are no bonus points for writing more or writing better. It’s about participation.
NEW: I’ve added a new feature this year. You can optionally upload a picture, video, or audio file! For example, a picture of something you’re thankful for! And if you’re not a “word person”, you can express your thankfulness through art, music, etc.
In a few days, I will choose 10 comments at RANDOM, and will send $20 via Paypal to each to those 10 people! It’s a small way for me to share a bit of the harvest. I will also announce the winners here on this post, as usual.
If you need examples or inspiration feel free to check out any of the previous years.
Please post a comment below and let us know what you’re thankful for 🙂
NOTE: Your comment will not appear right away, but don’t worry. I’ll check them and approve them periodically.
Have a great day and a happy Thanksgiving!
UPDATE: Here are the 10 winners!
