When people listen to something you’ve said, it’s nice. When they quote you at you, it’s even better.
A while ago on my other blog: firstname.lastname@example.org, a woman quoted my About Me page to me, and I was amazed. Because it is one thing to listen to someone, but to read their words, interpret and understand them, and then need to share your opinion with them on the internet: it’s like free cake!
Sorry, no free cake (just a tempting picture which is making me hungry!). But, you get my point: being rewarded for something that just came out and wasn’t practiced or rehearsed – it’s an amazing feeling.
