As I begin to approach 40,000 posts and more than 9 years with the V7N Community, I can’t help but think about how lucky and very blessed I am to be a part of it all.
With every new member I see scared to death to ask their first question, I remember my early days here. I especially remember how I was drawn in by the members and moderators who never once made me feel stupid for asking questions they had likely already answered a hundred times. They patiently took me under their wings and walked me through the learning process one step at a time.
It is with that same manner of kindness and acceptance that I try to continue to run the V7N Community on a day to day basis – not just when our members need technical help with web development and marketing, but as a place of refuge for those days when they lack the confidence and faith that they really can build a successful online presence – when they really need someone to listen.
One day I hope to take it all a step further by embarking on an incredible journey across the country to meet many of you in person to sit down over a cup of coffee and just chat. We could call it the “Where in the World Is Cricket?” campaign. (grin)
More than anything though, I want to say thank you.
Thank you for being a part of my life and for allowing me to be a part of yours.
