# Liked: Gratitude...

So I tend to send a brief email or DM. Really nothing more than a “I like your work, and that thing you did with X really helped me do Y, thanks, have a great day”. More often than not, I don’t get a reply. But that’s not the point. It’s not about counting ‘Likes’ or ‘Followers’. It’s about expressing appreciation for someones hard work.

There needs to be more of this on the web!

More giving and less taking. More appreciation and less mindless criticism.

Thanks to Chad for publicly outlining what, for him at least, is a private process.

  1. Agree thoroughly. It's hard not to get cynical about online interactions when so much of it is done with a commercial (or other self-centered) motive, but there are pockets of people who do this, and maybe if we all chip in, with genuine gratitude, we can effect some change.
