9 Bloggers I’m Thankful For

I love your blogContinuing our theme of gratitude in the run up to Thanksgiving, I’d like to express my gratitude to 9 bloggers I’m thankful for.  9  people whose blogs I recommend you read if you don’t already.

  • Michael Hyatt – Thanks for being a great example as CEO, blogger, and social media .  I aspire to lead people within my company and influence those outside of it the way you do.
  • Steve Fogg – Thanks for your passion for church communications and for raising the bar through your blog.
  • Tim Schraeder – Thanks for all you do to help other church communicators through your blog, Outspoken, Cultivate, and more.
  • Mike Ellis – Thanks for pushing the envelope and challenging me and others to love people that most tend to ignore – the poor, homeless, alcoholics, people who have messed up, people who think different that I do.
  • Brandon Cox – Thanks for being a pastor of pastors.  And thanks for being an exceptional example and advocate for pastors leading through blogging and social media.
  • John Saddington – Thanks for raising the bar in the church/tech niche of the blogosphere.  I learn a ton from you and am a better blogger because of your blogging.
  • Dan King – Thanks for working with me on the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog, for the awesome job you did tweeting from Haiti, and for all you do with The High Calling.
  • Phill Gibb – Thanks for engaging with me on Christian Web Trends and in social media.  You’ve been one of the most frequent commenters and retweets for a long time, and have contributed a lot of insight here over the years.
  • Ron Edmonson – Thanks for heart you have for developing leaders and for the way you challenge and encourage leaders through your blog.

Of course, there are lots of other bloggers who I appreciate but just don’t have the space to thank here.

  1. WHAT!!! Wow, dude… I saw this come across on Twitter, and I wanted to come look because I love good list posts (thanks to 31DBBB). And then I see myself on the list… I'm honored and humbled. Thank you!

    I also appreciate the work that you do, and I think that you are an amazing minister of the Gospel… not just through words, but also your deeds. You rock dude!

  2. Paul, you're awesome! Keep up the good work and thanks for the plug!

  3. Thank you Paul. This is an awesome tribute and honor.

  4. Wow, how in the heck did I wind up on this list? Thank you Paul. You humble and encourage me today.

  5. wow Dude, thank you so much for that. I think I get more from you that I could ever give :)

  6. I'm thankful for your blog. And these are some great blogs you've listed as well.

  7. Excellent suggestions .. and more than a few I was unfamiliar with. Of course, Dan King is the man over at HCB

  8. I'll 2nd Scott's thankfullness..

    Paul – your blog is one of the few I actually read on a regular basis – albeit sometimes I'm way behind due to the way my life works (or doesn't). I'm thankful that you are out there and willing to adapt and try new ideas. I'm thankful that you contacted ProBlogger and ran his 31DBBB – even though I was a reluctant joiner in on some of the exercises.

    But mostly I'm grateful for you and the input you've had in my blogging and in to my life.

    Thank you.

    Oh and good list :)

      Thanks Stuart. I appreciate your encouragement. It's good to hear that what we're doing here is worth your time and helping you.

  9. I was looking for some new blogs that might relate to me and I saw your list. The good news was I only following one, now I have several more to look at. Thanks Paul.
