Ode to bloggers

This won’t be the normal kind of off-topic Friday post. It’ll be a post of gratitude towards the people that have inspired and helped me in my blogging.
First, I’d really like to thank Roger Johansson and Tommy Olsson who have been an immense help and source of ideas, both in comments and off-the-blog in other kinds of conversation. Their writing is truly spectacular,well-balanced between important information and teaching while keeping a respectful relationship and attitude towards the people they mention in their posts.

Something else that has been extraordinary inspiring is when people whose material I frequently read and have been strongly affected by, have come here and read and commented on my posts! To have had visitors/commenters like Molly, Milan Negovan, Faruk Ates, Jeroen Mulder and their likes have been truly amazing!

Also, an extra thank you to frequent commenters Dejan and Box.

Naturally, I’m really very grateful for all you other visitors and commenters too, that haven’t been mentioned above, and for the people that have linked to my web site.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have tips and/or opinions!


PS. Next (probably less sentimental) post will be on Monday. Have a nice weekend! DS.

    You give me too much credit ๐Ÿ™‚ But it's good to have come here, I think. I need to get back in the blogger's circle again, because my initial jump in there was too brief and not really very major. I have so many plans, ideas and projects that I just haven't had a chance to do anything with yet…

    But, here's to a productive 2005, and let's hope that I get round to starting up all my projects and plans this year. *cheers* Now where's that beer…? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Robert says:


    Good to hear that you're up to things!

    Also, I hope to be a part of your blogger's circle! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Faruk Ates says:

    Oh, I'm up to MANY things. I'm particularly excited about my Learning CSS project, and I do hope that I'll get a chance to really start on my UNITY project this year already. Alas, SO much to do, still…

    Right now I don't have much of an impressive circle, really. But, I have some leads and I think that going to @media 2005 will allow me to do some very useful networking. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Robert says:

    > Right now I don’t have much of an impressive circle

    Faruk! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    You have me, at least, don't you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Regarding @media:

    I really can't/shouldn't say too much, but if the gods are good… ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Dejan says:


    just keep up the good job. I mean blogging ๐Ÿ™‚

    Seriously, I really like your postings and I hope growing audience on this blog will keep you motivated and persistent enough to keep writing fine postings even on those days when you would rather do something else.

  • Robert says:

    Thanks Dejan, ๐Ÿ˜€

    That means a lot!

    I will do my best to stay interesting.

  • Thank you for your kind words Robert. Hopefully you'll continue writing as you do, because I enjoy a lot of it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Robert says:


    Thank you!

    I'll do my best, and the same to you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Julia says:

    Well I enjoy coming here and reading all your posts, so keep up the good work….:-)

    I find all the blogs I read and subscribe to, enormously helpful and interesting, which gives me ideas to put into practice on my own site. Not a lot of good blogging content there yet, but hopefully that will improve with time.

  • Robert says:


    Thanks a lot!

    Hopefully I can stay interesting! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think you'll start blogging more soon, it's an addiction! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Tommy Olsson says:

    Robert, I dont't know exactly what I did to "help," but I'm glad you found it useful. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You've got a good blog going here, with solid, non-nonsense posts and interesting discussions going on in the comments.

    Keep up the good work! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Robert says:


    Thank you!

    You did a lot, believe me!

    As inspiration, participator in discussions and being a frequent reader.

    My aim is to stay sensible. We'll see what happens… ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I second Tommy's comment: you write good stuff, and good stuff deserves attention. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Robert says:


    Thank you!

    I like attention! ๐Ÿ˜€
