On the topic of thanks.

Since I posted about the importance of thanking customers yesterday, I thought I would thank some people today.

The readers.
The readers are extremely important to Service Untitled and I thank all of you for reading Service Untitled and perhaps even suggesting to your friends that they read it as well.

The customer service type people who help out.
The customer service blog sector seems to be a pretty close bunch and I’m glad I have had the opportunity to work with and communicate with such a great group of people. Maria at CustomersAreAlways, who has featured lots of my posts and been a big help; Tom at QAQNA, who featured my blog in its very early days; Glenn at Customer Service Experience, who convinced me to enable comments (it was good advice);as well as Meikah at CS – The New Competitive Edge, who has also featured quite a few of my posts.

The non-customer service people who also help out.
There are a lot of non-customer service people who have helped out Service Untitled as well. Among them: Guy Kawasaki, who featured one of my first posts and helped refer some of my earliest readers; Ben of a few sites (one of them is whereisbasil.com), who has helped promote some of my posts and provided me with a lot of good advice; Brian of Copyblogger, who helped write a great title for one of my posts; Liz of Successful Blog who has also helped answer a lot of my quesitons and provided me some good advice (and for hosting Open Mic Night!); and so many more people.

Everyone else.
There are other people who have helped Service Untitled out by linking to it, using it for their classes, arranging interviews (yes – I’m thinking the media relations people), agreeing to let me interview them, suggested topics, written guest posts, and more, and I’d also like to thank them. I’ve only been blogging since April (not even 6 months yet!) and have enjoyed the whole experience thoroughly. I intend to keep doing it for quite a while and I look forward to meeting and working with even more great people.

I will also be updating my blogroll page soon to include some of these great blogs that I haven’t already linked to.

Thank you again and I’ll be back tomorrow with a post about the top 10 frustrations in customer service.

    Hey Doug,

    Thanks for the thanks. It’s always appreciated, and it’s been a pleasure getting to know you.

    You know if Joe at Working At Home On The Internet reads this he’s going to tell you to call us “friends” and not “readers.” *grin*

    Talk to you soon…

    You’re welcome, Doug, anytime! I’d have to agree with you that the “network” of customer service bloggers are a friendly and helpful bunch. People like you and them, makes blogging really enjoyable. I get to learn a lot, too, from all of you. So I thank you, too! Keep at it!

    Using internet is simple as hell. But I can tell y ou right now, it can be very hard, if you are the first time user.
    So, first thing I suggest – open the Explorer, and type in the address you like.
    You’ll get there really fast, it depends on your connection speed.
    Good luck.
