The Laid Off IT Guy! Fan Mail
OK. Fan mail might be too strong of a statement, but I do get emails from people that tell me that my weekly blogs are encouraging and helpful. I find it inspirational and motivating to know that I'm helping others.About the time that I started sharing my PowerPoint about “Social Networking for Job Hunters,” I shared an email address. It is email@example.com. Since then, readers have taken their time to write to me giving me encouragement on my job search, as well as sharing similar points of view to the many various topics I have written about.
Here are some excerpts:
David J. wrote, “I saw your post on Twitter and would love to see your PowerPoint presentation on LinkedIn. I am currently studying for my CCNA and would be interested in updating my LinkedIn profile. I appreciate your help and look forward to seeing the presentation.”
From Martin N., “I just wanted to say 'thank you' to you for writing your blog on InformIT. Based in the UK, I have been reading it for a couple of weeks and just wanted to point out how good it is… Please, please keep the updates coming. So many of your posts resonate with me and I am finding the updates really interesting. Keep up your optimism, enjoy the benefits of not working (your post on free time with the kids was fab).”
David A. said, “I'd appreciate a copy of your LinkedIn networking presentation. I'm currently in the job market and can use all the help I can get. Thanks for your willingness to help!”
Hearing comments like these, and certainly the ones that
stated that I said something that they can personally relate to, are the reason
that I’m still blogging 39 posts later.
I do appreciate hearing from you. If you’d like to send me a message I will certainly answer it.
