Just a note of thanks

So, recently, I have started sending small notes of thanks to random podcasts, authors, and others who have either influenced me or provided me with entertainment.  Podcasters, specifically, put tons of hours into shows that I get to listen to for free, and really they seek very little in return (if anything).  So if there's a show or blog or book or other item that interests you and keeps you entertained, and you have a few minutes (like five or less), drop an email or comment to them and just say thanks, or provide some insight on their latest episode or some topic they have been talking about.  I've found most of them reply, and they're honestly happy to have heard from me.

In case you're wondering, this is not a plea for comments or emails from you guys reading this - send them elsewhere.  It's just a note saying that I have found this somewhat entertaining of late to engage content producers in an interactive conversation, and I recommend you do, too.

Oh, and there's a good chance that you see more quick, short blasts from me.  We will see whether that's a true prediction or not.  Either way, hope all is well.  Cheers!
