Today I received a comment on a post I wrote about MySpacefrom a guy named Spencer Kline. I appreciated his positive feedback and responded to his comment. I then noticed that he started following me on Twitter. Since I had just interacted with him, I recognized who he was. I followed him back and tweeted about his comment.
Since they were nice enough to link me in their post, I thought I would comment on it. So I did. Though this was a new blog for me, I did not spend the time to explore it just then. I didn’t even look at the URL. Blame it on being sick, being busy with projects, being lazy, who knows.
A little while later I got an email that someone responded to my comment. Lo and behold it was Spencer Kline. So I realized that he was likely the author of the blog. I hopped back over to the site and dug in a little deeper. Not only is he the author, it is his blog! Which if I had bothered to look at the URL I would have immediately realized, www.spencerkline.com. But, lazy, sick, busy..blah blah.
Once I FINALLY made the connection, it was a wonderful AHA moment. What a wonderful circle of connection. He read my post. Commented. I commented back. He followed me. I followed him. He linked me. I commented. He commented back. I link him!
All of this happened within the span of a few hours. It is perfect!
