Thank You For Making Me Smile Today

thank you heart iconEvery now and then (actually quite frequently) I get some positive feedback that reminds me why I blog and write and Facebook and tweet and all the other things that don’t put food on my family’s table.

From the mailbag:

Because of you we now drive a ZE, it was delivered three days ago, it is a thing of beauty, my wife is as happy as a pig in shit.  I read your blog, I was a follower of SNN, I have any number of reasons to thank you, you should be in no doubt that you make a difference.

That’s about as good as it gets so THANK YOU!

So I’m suggesting if you’ve been following a blog or a writer for a while but they don’t know it, dash off a quick note or a tweet or something because I can tell you: it can and does make a real difference.

BTW if you’re looking for a few more reasons to drive an electric car Chris Payne slays a few myths in this great piece in the Washington Post.

1. The electric car is dead.

This myth is partly my fault, perpetuated by the title of my 2006 documentary, “Who Killed the Electric Car?” The signs back then weren’t promising. Under pressure from car companies and other lobbyists, California rolled back its Zero-Emission Vehicle mandate, which had helped get nearly 5,000 electric cars on the road. The change in the regulation freed carmakers to round up the cars they had leased — and then surreptitiously crush them.

Thankfully, it takes more than a crusher to kill a technology. Today, almost all the major automakers, along with a cast of new players, are investing in and building plug-in cars. California’s mandate has also made a comeback, and other states are considering similar rules.

    You are so right. Positive comments feel like a paycheck, and keep me writing, more than readers can possibly know. If two readers had not commented that my posts helped them to make aliyah, I never would have known the value of writing those little joyful posts about life in Israel. And comments from fellow bloggers feel a little like the Oscars must. :-D

    Well, Dave, you are one of the bestest there is. Really a pleasure to follow you.

      Brian of London wrote this post, not me. Although I agree with his sentiments!

  • Dorith

    I just want to tell that I always look forward to read the posts of Israellycool!

  • Jim from Iowa

    Life’s journey can begin with one single blogpost, no matter how wrongheaded it might turn out to be. Keep doing what you’re doing, Brian. I always find your blogposts worthwhile whether or not I agree with you.
