I was reading on Facebook a post from a fellow blogger and photographer who was delighted to have received an offline message from someone just to let them know that they enjoyed seeing their pics on Flickr. It was a message of appreciation and thanks and obviously made their day. The person sending the message also mentioned that they ‘felt outgoing’ enough to send the message and hoped it didn’t appear ‘stalkery’. It made me smile to read it and I’m sure it absolutely delighted the person receiving the message.
It got me thinking about how we often appreciate people for their work in Second Life but so rarely find time to tell them. It also made me think about how many people I follow on Flickr and Facebook but have never directly communicated with and it also got me thinking about how warm that feeling is of making someone else smile. So, I figured, why not pass that feeling on.
Today I’m going to do two things. Firstly, I am going to IM one of my friends that I do talk to often to tell them how much I appreciate them and secondly, I am going to IM someone I follow on social media but have never spoken to but admire greatly and tell them how much I enjoy their work and appreciate their efforts. I will enclose a link to this and I’m really hoping they read this and then do the same and pass it on. We all lead such busy and hectic SLives but wouldn’t it be nice for us to take a couple of minutes just to make someone’s day. #PassItOnSL
