    I’ve really enjoyed this blog over the past few months I’ve been subscribed and have definitely noticed a significant improvement in your writing style as well as the implied level of professionalism that comes with that. You’re doing great work here, and it’s being noticed. Keep it up! And thank you.

    Thanks for your blog. It always helps me understand things better. As a Design Manager, i was always looking for something like your blog that really upgrade my skills.

    Thanks a ton.

    Totally agree with you 100%! Cool, the way you’re stretching yourself and growing personally as a designer. Keep up the awesome stuff!

    I’ve enjoyed reading your blog since I discovered it a few months back. Even though I may not always agree with what you write, I still have much respect for your original, well thought-out content. Which is becoming rather rare these days within the design blogsphere.

    I started my blog not too long ago, and I can relate to what you listed in this article. Writing blog is more difficult and rewarding than I originally expected. It really broadened my horizon on certain things.

    Keep up the good work.

    Kyle, Vicky & Brandon:

    Thank you for your kind comments, it really means a lot to me. It really helps to know that other people appreciate the work that goes into this blog.

    Jin,

    I appreciate your difference of opinion. The last thing I want is for this site to become a place where everyone is drinking the Kool-aid. The main goal of Positive Space was to encourage thoughtful discussion and debate on design and people like yourself are helping do that.

    Thanks everyone!

    Don’t let the negative comments discourage you. It’s better to have an opinion about something than to be stuck on the “please everyone” train.

    Besides, a wise mentor once told me, “Love me, or hate me, there’s no money in the middle”.

    The more you let yourself out in your writing and blog posts, the more you’ll polarize people (which is a good thing). Those that like you, will LOVE you and they will be extremely loyal.

    Those that don’t will voice their opinion but that’s what will keep them coming back.

    Keep doing what you’re doing and don’t pay attention to the naysayers.

    BTW - one tip I’d give you is to add a check box under your comments so people can be notified when follow up comments are posted - it helps those of use wanting to stay engaged in the conversation on your blog.

    All the best.
