It is great to know that people like and appreciate your work. When they recognize your idea and participate in its realization.
It is also great when they tell you this. Or when they get involved, by praising you or criticizing.
Both are welcome.
After that, in the meantime between then and today, we got boost from social media and other citizen journalism websites and blogs, but most recent we wish to mention now.
One month ago our blogger friend, and also a member of our website, Lisa, wrote a blog post about our website on her own blog. It was great for us to see that she liked it and found it useful. She recognized it as a good place to stop by and share her posts. And she invited other bloggers to join.
Considering that bloggers represent important part of citizen journalists, we are very happy to see that we reached their interest and attention.
And after that, another great thing happened yesterday. Which we absolutely must share.
Just while checking our profile and videos on YouTube, we bumped on a video about our website, uploaded on Oct 2, but made by someone else. An unknown supporter.
It was a bit of a cool surprise. And quite a mystery.
Video lasts five minutes and describes in detail each and every step on our website, its purpose, how it works… Everything.
And also mentions our social media profiles, citizen journalism blog and directory, and the way visitors can search it.
All that in Spanish language.
Video is great, in our totally biased opinion, and shows our website and directory at their best.
So, besides being completely astonished, we are also proud and thrilled with this amazing surprise.
This is our way to say thanks to our unknown friend for wonderful presentation and promotion.
P.S. If anyone has some interesting idea how to surprise someone in this digital age, please share and leave a comment.
