Thank you


I just wanted to take a moment—and apparently a blog post—to thank you for reading.

Sincerely. From the bottom of my bloggy heart.

I’ve been both humbled and amazed at the number of interesting people I’ve had the opportunity to meet, the incredible products I’ve been able to see, and the sense of community I’ve been able to experience in the past months.

All thanks to a random wacky moment of inspiration and a half-hour of blog setup in the wee morning hours, last August.

Today, the Silicon Florist RSS feed has crossed the 500 subscriber mark. That’s something that I never really foresaw. And I’m completely floored.

And I know, full well, that that subscriber number is only where it is because of you. So, thank you to each and every one of you, who are doing really cool things here in the Silicon Forest.

Rest assured, no matter how tough things may seem, you’re doing stuff about which, clearly, people want to hear.

There’s something very exciting happening. And I feel very, very honored to play a role in it.

You keep up the good work. And I’ll keep doing my best to help give it the limelight it so rightly deserves.

Thank you.
