What made you smile today?

I’m on cloud 9 this evening.

In January I agreed to become a collaborator on a very successful blog. Today, the creator of the blog has given me my first Linkedin recommendation.


It reads as follows:

I asked Debs to join me at Special Needs Jungle at the beginning of 2013. I believed she would bring a different perspective and help with increasing the site’s output.

In fact, she has brought so much more than this and has quickly become indispensable. There has been a direct correlation between Debs coming on board and an increase in readership.

She brings a great writing style, huge amounts of energy, ideas, enthusiasm, and for me personally, is a great sounding board for the future direction of Special Needs Jungle.

In six months she has become more than a contributor and I regard her as my partner in the site that we aim to expand significantly.

Bringing Debs on board is possibly the best business decision I have made and I am looking forward to a long and fruitful partnership in the future.”

I cannot express how much this means to me. I was really honoured and, to be honest, daunted at taking on the role in January. Tania had set up Special Needs Jungle and built it into a very reputable blog – I was so worried that perhaps what she had seen in me wasn’t really there and I was worried about the welcome from her regular followers – they’d signed up to follow Tania, not me. However, all the followers have been really welcoming and made this something which feels like fun and not work.

Getting this recommendation means a lot because I hugely admire Tania and what she has managed to achieve. It would appear she thinks I’m doing ok too!
