Ever wondered what kind of messages hit my inbox? I get this question every once in a while from my friends. Some out of shear curiosity and some to gauge if there is really an impact on the viewers, sometimes just for a good laugh because some people are quite unforgiving.
So, here we go today, 3 years into this, this is how the filtered inbox looks. Unedited 🙂
We turned 3 yesterday (time since the first blog post was published).
It’s amazing how fast time has flown. We have walked the journey together and 82 blog posts later, I want to say thank you for making the journey enjoyable. Your messages, comments, some mistakes, humor, sarcasm and thoughts have been the foundation of most of the content that we have. Thank you
Here we go:
