Reaching out

reaching out

This is my 300th post for this blog. A milestone - not because of the number; rather because I will describe a most memorable event on my 300th post.

If you have read my previous post on Go-Giver, you would have realized that I am in love with that book. On a hunch I sent an e-mail to the authors, Bob Burg and John Mann, thanking them for writing such a wonderful book. I also told them to have a look at my review on Go-Giver. And guess what, yesterday morning the first mail I saw was the reply from Bob Burg. Then just before going to bed, I received a mail from John Mann. WOW! Especially because I did not expect a response - you know! Busy people and all that!

Am I delighted or am I delighted?

I am glad I started this blog - along the way I have made numerous friends who regularly read my posts. Many of them leave a comment or two. Some of them have featured posts from this blog on their blogs: Tothewire and Susancritelli(Please click on these links and visit their blogs to give them some e-love). Some do not leave a comment but I know they are there. When I get mails berating me for not celebrating Tintin's 75th birthday I know they are there. Or when I get an e-mail asking if I am alright on the day I do not blog, I know they are there. One of my readers actually called me to find out if the advice to my kids apply to me also. And then there are these bunch of cool guys at the Indiblogger forum.

I think I will be blogging for a long, long time.

Thank you all for celebrating this triple century with me. All those who left a message and all those who told me so in personally.
@Jhangora, Thanks for the offer. I will take a rain check on that. If I get an idea that is suitable for your blog, I will let you know.
