Slow Week but filled with Gratitude!

Even though I had many things to  work on this week, decided to take it easy on Thursday by going to the movies and meeting up with some friends for a late lunch. Friday, I was published on a few blogs other than this one.

I just finished @garyvee’s book The Thank You EconomyPhotos of Raul Colon Web Developer Puerto Rico (Amazon Affiliate Link) and really wanted to thank those who gave me the opportunity to share my message with the communities they have worked so hard to build.

First I have been collaborating with Nelson Alcantara from E-Turbonews and he gave me the privilege to Interview the Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism company Mario Gonzales La Fuente. For those of you that missed it here is the link to interview:

Ladies and gents, Puerto Rico speaks up, finally

That interview did spark some online conversations especially from someone who I admire for having a firm voice and he might not even understand that he influenced my involvment in twitter and other social media platforms. Mr @gilthejenius wrote a piece on his thoughts of our interview. I really appreciate the compliments and the support he gave us via his blog.

Tourism? Nah. Tourrette’s

While at SXSW I met Pamela Hernandez at the Samsung Blogger’s Lounge where we discussed many topics that she had in common with me. Pamela Hernandez from @thrivefit invited me to guest post on her blog and also posted a neat article on Veglatino about being vegetarian and a personal trainer.

Not Your Average Personal Trainer

Going Meatless

Another SXSW experience was getting to meet Mr. Manny Ruiz better known as @papiblogger who also invited me to collaborate on his blog with my ideas and thoughts on being a new Dad. I really want to thank Manny for the great opportunities he has given me in the last two months where I have been collaborating with him at @hispanicize and many other efforts. I also want to thank @michaeldcc for taking a look at the spanish version (visit hist blog Poder 5)

Is there a Strategy on Teaching how to Be Grateful?

Last week I was sick so I fell behind on reading blog posts. I later found out that my friend @margieclayman, who I have written about previously , featured me on a post as one of the people she admires. I learn so much from Margie that I try to follow her steps in engaging more people and being as unique as possible. Like I told her today she is a Jedi with words!

Twelve Engagement Super Stars Whom I Adore

Everytime I get invited to speak, guest post, giving a compliment or mentioned on or offline,  I make sure to show gratitude. Sometimes I think I might have missed the mark but when I have people like Gabriel Pagan, who is someone I truly admire for being a great dad, mentor, and nuggets of wisdom, it makes me feel a lot better that I am part of the Thank You Economy as @garyvee would say in his new book.

Gabriel, Thanks for acknowledging that I take the time to give thanks to those who are part of my daily life and community either online or offline.

So how are you making sure you are grateful for the things you receive online or offline?
