A nice thank you

Saturday, December 9th, 2006

I’m sure all the journalists who come across this can sympathize with me. Much of what you write you hear nothing about. You write it, it gets put out there and you never really know how well or ill-received it was. It just exists. Well, that’s how it normally is for me.

But today, I woke up and had an e-mail with the subject “THANK YOU!” from a strange address. (My MacBook was still at the Stater, so I was checking my GMail on my phone, which doesn’t show the first line of the e-mail.) I honestly contemplated if it was spam, but decided to see. Instead, it was an e-mail from one my sources for the Wine 101 story. The e-mail said “your covering of the topic was excellent! You did a wonderful job interviewing, writing the details and explaining the topic of wine.” :) So, that was a bright spot to my day.
