On the Value of Comments
This last week I posted about feeling stressed about some in process life changes that are both complicated and exciting.
I was really a bit blown over by the comments I got on that post.
A lot of people dropped by to take the time to offer some words of encouragement. Some of whom I know a bit in the blogoshpere, and some of whom I don’t know at all. Okay, it really wasn’t that many people…my readership isn’t even all that huge. But I found it very touching that anyone took the time. Thank you so much. Little bits of encouragement every time I logged on really made a difference in keeping my spirits and motivation up this week.
Once again, I think I’ve gotten so much more out of joining the blogging community than I ever expected. You guys rock! It’s really made me feel like I should push myself a little more to comment when I see a post I find helpful or someone could use some encouragement. I could definitely find the time to do that more often. It was the first non WoW related post I’ve put up, and that in itself makes the responses surprising. I feel blessed to have you all.
You may have also noticed that I have a cute new icon for comments now instead of the default WordPress orange thing on both my blog and twitter. That’s all the doings of Beru. She took the time and initiative to Photoshop up some character art for me. She made me icons in several sizes, and let me know the easiest way to upload them so they’d show up everywhere. She even remembered me saying a while back how much it meant to me to complete the Algalon quest and see the Dalaran sky turn all dark purple and stary…so she chose that as a background. It was just about the best surprise ever. And it was even better that I got her email just as things seemed the worst.
Sometimes it’s the little things that make everything better.
