First of all, thank you to all of our readers who have not commented on any of the posts but have visited the site just the same. Some people do prefer not to comment but we appreciate you visiting our site and hope you will come back again.

To everyone who has commented on our site this year – as a small token of our appreciation we have compiled the following list, in the spirit of sharing in this modern day and age, providing you a link (or 2 if possible) back to your sites below (in case you didn’t know, apart from any traffic you might get via people clicking through from here, this also helps your site’s Search Engine Optimization as these are extra backlinks to your site (the more backlinks you have the more authority your site has)).

Gift #2: Thanks To Our Readers and Commentors — 24 Comments

  1. Hey Alan-
    Thanks for including me in your post! What a fantastic idea! I am constantly impressed by your great ways to build a community and so glad that you have invited me along for the ride. Good luck and have a wonderful holiday!

    Thanks again, Shani

    • No probs Shani & thanks. That’s all I want, a nice community and that’s what I’ve asked Santa for. It’s not that easy – I think I find it harder to build relationships online than offline but I’m trying my best (I’m very new to the ‘online world’ or the ‘blogoshpere’ as lots seem to call it) and because I haven’t asked for anything else for Xmas this year (I have plenty of tea bags already and I’m trying to cut down on chocolates) I think the elves might be working their magic already.

      take care Shani, have a great XMas, an even better 2012 & thanks again for your kind words,

    • Hi Allie,

      no probs and thank you once more for the kind comments. I hope you’re still up for some more collaboration in Jan – I have a few ideas, I’ll email you about them between XMas & New Year, would that be OK?

      In fact to be honest, learning about all of this online stuff I’ve got lots of ideas buzzing around in my head, but I’m learning to try and have some focus and go through them one at a time.

      anyways, as always thanks for your help,


      • You can email me then but I may be slow to answer. I don’t know how much online time I will be getting in. Going out of town but my laptop will be with me. I’m sure I will not be able to stay away for long. 🙂


        • 😉 Good for you! I have pretty much the same story – we’re off to my parents tomorrow but I will take my laptop (but won’t be online as much as usual),

          I meant more some time between now and New Year I’ll mail you 😉

          take care,

  2. Isabelle & Alan

    Your energy and enthusiasm is both inspirational and humbling.
    Apologies for the small contribution and can only promise more for 2012.

    Thank you for keeping frienship and positive thinking alive in this way.

    We wish a fantastic holiday season and a great New Year for you, your family and everyone dear to you!

    • Wow! Thanks for the kind words my friend,

      of course our friendship will always be alive!! But the big question is, why don’t you have your own website yet? A man with your technical skills should have a hundred of them… All inter-linked with some mad massive database 😉

      thanks again for the kind and (sorry but I have to steal your word and re-use it) humbling words – very best wishes to you and your lovely family for Christmas & 2012,


    • Hey Jay,

      Thank you my friend for stopping by & for your most helpful comments,

      I wish you all the best for 2012 and a very Merry Christmas to you too,

      take care,

  3. Thanks for the mention! What a lovely, and very generous, gesture.

    Let me wish you the compliments of the season. Happy Christmas when it arrives.

    Best Regards

    • No probs Hamish,

      thanks for stopping by in the first place and for your helpful comments,

      Merry XMas & a Happy New Year to you too!

      take care & best wishes,
