This is a thank you post.
To everyone who opted to share their thoughts and comments with me over the month of July, please accept my hearty thanks:
Dave Atkins, Robin Birch, Will Boucher, David Bradley, Ed Cameron, Nancy Friedman, Byrne Hobart, Andy Hubbard, Franke James, John Kaiser, Cath Lawson, Patrick Roberts, Tom Salemi, Margaret Scarboro, Gillian Swart, Karen Zara, Mary at South End Blend, the UAE students, Bradley Jones, Gladys Kravitz, Dick Monahan, Anne, Brian, Michelle, angelmom66, and bepps.
On the subject of thanking people, I must poke beyond the confines of ariwriter.com and into other people’s blogs who linked to mine last month and helped shrink the size and separation of the blogosphere:
- Liz Strauss for linking to 260 bloggers who volunteered to be included in a blog-to-show linkfest. Her massive post spawned others on and off her list to further share the glory, including:
- Cath Lawson for linking to 131 bloggers who shared their thoughts on her blog in recent months.
- Darren Rowse for enabling almost 700 bloggers to enter into a social media love-in.
Please visit these people linked above and if you like what they have to say, be sure to post a comment on their sites, not just mine.
The power of the web is in the idea there are people I don’t know about who will read my blog or read someone else’s blog and be inspired to join both of our communities and enrich the conversation. In this sense, 1 + 1 = 3.
