I also appreciate a random tweet from a total stranger. This tweeter liked an article I wrote for Examiner.com. That 47 character note plus re-tweets tripled my daily article traffic. Given that Examiner's earnings (like so many other web-writing-gigs) are largely traffic-based, the bump was a pleasant surprise.
I also just cracked open a book on the history Family, Sex and Marriage in England* that was recommended to me by a friend of my friend, through a chain of "please send me your best reading recommendations on this topic" emails. Forty pages into the book, I can already see why this text comes so highly recommended, yet it turned up in none of my earlier searches.(*The book is material for this fall's Sociology course...)
Love. The. Power. Of. Networks.
What are you thankful for this week?
