I started this blog with the goal of developing some skills in news writing, research, or journalism. I’ve considered this a pretty personal project, meaning I didn’t think anyone else would really notice or care, but today I got a pat on the back from a complete stranger, and it actually meant a lot to me.
I am tempted to dismiss the compliment, based on the website it was found on, but I won’t – I appreciate the fact that someone I don’t know saw something I wrote, held it up as a valuable/interesting reference point and that some 31 readers from that site choose to follow the link and see my post.
Here’s the reference on The Huffington Post to my favorite piece so far, “Burning Down The House”.
Thank you, random Huffington Post reader – I appreciate that you saw value in something I wrote.
