I’ve tried to keep up with comments on this blog on a daily basis, but for the past couple of days, I have not taken the time to reply. So tonight, I caught up on those comments–and it got me to thinking.
There are all sorts of reasons for responding to blog posts. It’s just plain polite for one thing. And I’m sure there are all sorts of blog-savvy reasons for responding to comments as well.
But for me today, focusing on this simple act was a way of acknowledging the contributions you have made in helping me sustain this experiment, day after day.
I’ve made similar acknowledgements before, but it bears repeating: thank you for the part you have played, and the part you continue to play, in supporting me on this yearlong endeavor. Regardless of the format–a comment on this site, a share on another social media site, an email, or a face-to-face conversation–and regardless of how frequently you have done so, I have appreciated your feedback and support.
And I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
