The reason for blogging

Reasons_1 A few weeks ago I received this email:

Hanan,
I noticed that my site was listed as one of Yahoo! Picks of the Year. I thought I’d drop you a note to thank you again and let you know what’s up with me…
...It is not an exaggeration to say that you listing my site on your blog resulted in my work being seen by hundreds of thousands of people from all parts of the world. It placed my work in several national and international magazines, newspapers, and websites, connected me with many new cyber-colleagues, and lead to sales. The repercussions are felt in all parts of my life. I am most fortunate, indeed.
I wish you the very best New Year and beyond,
Martin Waugh, Liquid Sculpture

- All the best, Martin! Your site deserves all the credit it gets!

' Heel aardig weblog met allerlei alleraardigste zaken'
I'm sure you speak your Dutch quit well but I will try to translate:
'Fairly good weblog containing several fairly good items'!

Indeed. "Fairly good" ....... "fairly good items!"

Hunh?

Hanan.... I 'just' scrolled through the litany of accolades to your work, and this one??

Why, yes, Hanan is fairly good...... :)


You are THE BEST. And you know why you receive few comments? People are so entranced by your work that they want to savor it. Commenting would break that aura of pleasure......
