It’s Thanksgiving[1. For those of you in the US at least. Here in Canada we’ve already finished our leftovers.] , the beginning of the holiday period and the last holiday before the year end celebrations of Christmas, Hanukkah, Yule, Kwanzaa and Decemberween.
You want to eat turkey or turkey equivalent, hang out with your family, watch bad Thanksgiving specials and prepare combat drills for the Black Friday sales. We’d rather be doing the same, but you know… Canada. As well as the obvious joy of family and reckless consumption, Thanksgiving is intended as a time to give thanks for things. That’s why they call it that.
Here at Vanilla Forums we have a lot to be thankful for. We’ve had a great year, helping to build communities for hundreds of new clients. We’ve grown our team considerably. We’ve moved to fancy new offices. We’ve had great trips to San Francisco and New York to visit the CMX events, giving us an opportunity to meet community managers from around the world.
Most of all, we’re thankful to our customers. For trusting us with their treasured communities. For being our partners as we build new and better community forum software. For spreading the word to other businesses that are looking for ways to upgrade and improve their communities. For reading our blog posts, reading our books and attending our webinars.
Thank you. Have a good Thanksgiving. Eat too much pie.
