Commenter Appreciation: May 2008

It has been a long time since I last did a commenter appreciation post, but with the recent comments I have been getting from two people in particular, I had to take some time out of my day to feature them. Bloggers that I have known for some time have, for some unknown reason, taken time out of their life to add their thoughts and opinions to this blog, and I wanted to make sure that they know I appreciate it.

So a big thanks from me goes out to Kevin and Jeff.

Kevin Muldoon

Linking to his personal blog, System0 from the comments he leaves here, Kevin is better known in my mind as the owner of BloggingTips, a popular multi-author blog that covers all aspects of blogging. I have watched as he changed the staff and the design of his popular blog, and yet he still found time to come over here and say “hello” more than once. A great guy to get to know and I am glad he keeps stopping by.

His personal blog covers the interactions he has with technology, video games and his day to day life. His opinions are usually in line with my own, which is always a plus in my book.

Jeff Chandler

Jeff, or Jeffro, runs the WordPress Weekly podcast, and writes for the very popular Weblog Tools Collection. He also works on his own blog Jeffro2pt0, where he talks about what is going on in the web 2.0 world, as well as covering blogging, and from time to time, WordPress.

I have been on his WordPress Weekly show more than once, and I really appreciated the opportunity recently to break the news about my new career. Jeff has quickly become one of the voices online that I really enjoy tracking, and I see nothing but success for this guy. I have a feeling that he will be one of those people I will one day be telling people “I knew him before he became famous online”.


If you aren’t watching what both of these guys are doing online, you are missing very important things. They both have different levels of experience, but they keep their ears to the ground when it comes to all things blogging.

    Well, since you wrote up a commenter appreciation post and I was one of the ones mentioned, it makes sense for me to comment on this post as well 🙂 Thanks for the mentions Dave. I’ve been enjoying some of the guest blog posts as well as your own and have felt the need to contribute because bits and pieces of the articles get my mind flowing.

    It’s funny that you say that you see nothing but success for me as my bio for my twitter account is: Dire need for success within ones lifetime

    Thanks for the mention Dave. You’ve been writing some great posts which is why I keep coming back. I have to echo what Jeff said and say that the guest posts have been really good too.

    Good to see xfep growing too. I reckon it will reach 1000+ subscribers within the next 4 months.
