Appreciating the appreciation
This month I’ve gotten several compliments and positive feedback on how TestingConferences.org has helped them. Some have been speakers, some participants looking for a conference and others have been conference organizers.
It’’s a pretty amazing feeling when (in this case) multiple people say they’ve gotten use or value from something I created. Especially since this is a side project I developed to help me learn. I introduced TC.org in October of 2015 with this blog post and since then it has grown to the top of Google’s organic search results for many software and testing conference related searches. Even though I can see the numbers having specific people confirm they are getting value is quite nice.
In other words I appreciate the appreciation. I appreciate that human touch. This is something I intend to do more often in 2018: Thank people directly when I get value from their work.
