What a wonderful week its been here on ProBlogger for me. Sometimes I just love my job. I’m getting to interact with some wonderful people from all corners of the world. I just got of Skype talking with Will Pate (Canada) a blogger I’ve admired for a while now. Yesterday I chatted with Sho (no blog… yet) a Japanese executive at a large Japanese web hosting company who are also the people behind the blogging service yaplog (with 100,000+ users). This week was also the first time I chatted to Arieanna (Canda) from Blogaholics and started chatting via email to one of the guys I’ve admired most for ages from afar – Chris Pirillo who has been gracious enough to agree to an interview with me (submit your questions for him in comments below if you’d like).
Add to all this the great chats I’ve had via IM and email with people like Bobby Masteria (France), Tris Hussey (Canada), Greg Edwards (US), Nicole Simon (Germany), Mark Jones (Australia), Jeremy Wright (Canada), Susannah Gardener (US), Rachel and Regan Cunliffe (NZ), John Campea (Canada), Cameron Reilly (Aus), Ken Burgin (Australia) and Connected (UK) – just to name a few.
I’m not sure why it is (maybe the link up in Market Watch was part of it) but this week people have started coming out of the woodwork to say g’day and I’m feeling very honored to be in the work that I’m in. Earlier today I was out with friends and they were complaining about hard their work is and how drained it leaves them feeling – all I could say when it was my time to speak was how much I love what I do and what a wonderful and diverse group of people I’m meeting through it. Here’s to next week being just as fun!
If you’d like to say hi via IM or email simply use the details on my contact page and say G’day.
Update: I’m also loving watching readers interact with the poll in the side bar. 138 responses in less than 24 hours so far and some very interesting results so far. I’ve got some ideas to extend this poll in the future in a fuller survey which hopefully will be useful for us all as Pro Bloggers.
