From TDH, To TDH

Every now and then I get an email from a reader that makes me smile. This one, signed Hanse, was such an email, reposted with permission.

Hello TDH from another TDH.

I landed on your website while looking for whatever Facebook users are called. I enjoyed that and your Inspiration, Infinite Scrolling and especially What to Write articles. Thanks for posting them!

Mostly Iโ€™m just glad that if someone else is going to use TDH, Iโ€™m glad it was done so well and positively. People might even think itโ€™s me if they donโ€™t look at your picture! Or read much.

Good going!

This is why you shouldn’t hesitate to get in touch with some kind words every now and then. Not just to me obviously, but to people who do something you like. There is so much negativity online, and it’s so easy to post a snarky comment, so these things stand out. They can be heart-warming, even.

If you’d like to talk to me, I’m @tdh on Twitter, and @tdh on App.net, got a Facebook page, and a Tumblr blog too, and you could even email me if that’s your poison. I love to talk, so don’t be a stranger. Even if it’s just a quirky little email like the one above.
