    I wanted to share this e-mail I received.

    Thank you for the very nice article that you wrote about our Japanese Street Festival. I am so glad that you enjoy it, and that you shared your feelings about it with everyone.

    I was very impressed he took the time to write to me.  But I also wanted to let people who are new see that our Hubs are noticed by people outside of HubPages also.  cool

    Here is a link to the Hub he read:

    The Sakura Matsuri Japanese Street Festival at the Washington DC Cherry Blossom Festival

    Thats great, I know how you feel its nice to know that those who see the value in what we write come and let us know, I had that happen on a few of my hubs, one in particular that made me proud was when I wrote a hub about work at home businesses and I gave reference to the books written by Paul and Sarah Edwards (the original authors of the home based biz), well they actually stopped by and left a comment on my hub thanking me. It was really cool!

    Here is the hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/Working-From-Ho … ah-Edwards

    This is WAY cool, K@ri! And I rated. wink

    I've e-mailed some of the bands and people I've linked to work in....and have so far not garnered much response. But then again, some of these people have rather busy lives.

    My point is...
    If this guy can get into your article, why can't you go and maybe direct someone you think would be interested in it?

    Sincerely,

    GLM
