New Blogging Event! Take-A-Step Thursday!

TakeAStepThursday 2

Ever since I’ve started blogging, I’ve been so inspired by lovely bloggers who come up with great topics to talk about, events to participate in, challenges they’ve set for themselves and encouraging words and ideas that make me want to get my creative juices flowing!

There is no such thing as too much inspiration. Take-A-Step Thursday is an original weekly feature by Thistles and Whistles where you share your inspired thoughts and start a viral chain of positive actions and events !

What has inspired you this week? It could be anything from a book you’ve read, a quote from your Holy Scripture, a moving film you have watched, a cat video, DIY projects on Pinterest, a baby giggling, a beautiful photograph, the rising sun, your pets, a motivational clip – anything that has filled your mind with purpose to take a step and do something!

What have you been inspired to do as a result? Have you got an idea to create a scrapbook of travel photographs and memorabilia, join a book club, organize your drawers, renovate your home, make a bucket list, sky dive, write a book, clear out your email clutter, engage in some community events, volunteer at a pet shelter, make a personal manifesto, start a recycling program in your office, take a trip to another country or try an exotic recipe?

Here’s what you have to do:
1. Write a post of what has inspired you this week on Thursdays. Share a link or post a picture of your inspiration.
2. Include in the same post what you have been inspired to do as a result. Share your ideas. It could be the same thing you’ve been inspired to do (for eg. you saw a recipe and you’ve been inspired to make it as well) or it could be something entirely different. Posting your ideas on your blog will actually make you want to do it.
3. Tag your post TakeAStepThursday on WordPress and #TakeAStepThursday on Twitter and Instagram. 
4. Link back to this post. (Linking back to the blog Thistles and Whistles doesn’t give me a notification unfortunately).
6. Engage with other bloggers to share and receive some ideas and inspiration.

      Hello ! Oh WOW, that is absolutely great !!! What an excellent job; you’ve started a wonderful initiative!!! 😀 😀

      I am both incredibly happy that we all have a shared forum/blog to stay in touch to collaborate and discuss further possibilities and super proud and humbled that #TakeAStepThursday started off on such a great note.

      I love the idea!! Again, thank you so much for feeling inspired by Take-A-Step Thursday to get our Blogging group together!

    I’m so glad I found this site! I am always looking for inspiration – whether it’s a TV episode, a song lyric, a piece of artwork, an event, a poem, and I’m looking forward to participating in this on Thursdays!

        Thank you! This is the recipe I roughly followed :
        I substituted agave syrup and honey for sugar and used the chia seed option instead of egg (1tbsp chia seeds in 3 tbsps water – soaked for 5-10 mins). I also didn’t use almond or oatmeal (as I’d run out due to making the oatcakes!) but I think it needs at least the oatmeal. And I’d definitely add nuts next time. The site also has a version with butternut squash puree added to it.
