In the midst of attempting to accommodate a hobby with professional work demands, I was thrilled to receive a special mention from John Paul Aguiar, as part of his recognition of members of his Twitter network! Yes, I made John's July List, titled much better by him as "15 Top People On Twitter To Follow – July"! Thank you so much John! The pleasure is all mine, and thank you for sharing interesting things in the first place!
Not one to seek out any kind of recognition in the areas of my life where such may be sought out, things like this go a long way to making my day! It's a great feeling when you do nothing spectacular, or necessarily out-of-your-way to be appreciated for the effort nonetheless. It's such a feelgood, warming sensation that makes you want to get up and say, "Wow! Thank you for seeing me do this, and for thinking it to be helpful to you! Most importantly, thank you for taking the time out to recognize my effort!" But, because we are all so busy with the things we allow to consume our thoughts and concerns all at once, we tend to take things for granted, even if we don't take things for granted. Therefore, it is so refreshing to find those people who recognize the "human" behind the talents, skills, knowledge, abilities, and what have you, to attempt to connect to the soul of another sentient being and let them know that their being the way they are is the perfect complement to another's existence, no matter how major or minuscule the effect.
John is one of those few people who, in spite of what he is up to in his own life, always stops to show gratitude for any little thing that his friends and followers may do to help him promote his tweets. Of course, you may read this and wonder how I can make a call to celebrate that which is run-of-the-mill necessary, but I warn you to not be hasty in your judgement just yet. John's work is assisting people promote their own websites and businesses online via blogging and social media marketing advice. Having attempted only the content writing side of this business for a little while, I have to say that it is a full-time job, and the more time you can spare, the more successful you will be. So, to me, it is worth mentioning in today's revolving-around-money world that John takes out the time he could have otherwise used to earn more, to say "Thank you." Oh, and I don't just mean when he thinks it is convenient for him to do so, because you know, business comes first, and blah blah blah. Every single time that I have retweeted one of his original tweets, he has always thanked me. Always! In our no-time-for-life existence, it is the little things like this that remind me that life is worth living.
Thank you very much John! As mentioned, it's always a pleasure to share interesting content, for the benefit of all, and I do it gladly! Have a great day, and I hope bigger things come your way!
