Quirky concepts catch my attention; visually engaging blogs hold my interest. Leah Dieterich’s blog, thxthxthx: a thank you note a day, is a quirky and visually entertaining concept that I enjoy immensely. Here’s the basic premise: “There’s always something to be thankful for. From the important things like Songs You’re Embarrassed to Like, and Heavy Eyelids that Tell You When You Need to Sleep, to friends and family, love and loneliness, light and darkness, Leah Dieterich sets out to acknowledge them all. thxthxthx is her daily exercise in gratitude.” I am thankful to Dieterich for this email interview and to Jason Bitner for putting me in contact with her.
Tim O’Shea: In the about category for the blog, you explain”Leah Dieterich’s mother always told her to write thank you notes. So she does.” What’s been her reaction to your blog?
Leah Dieterich: It’s funny, she told me after Christmas that she hadn’t written her thank you notes yet. I think it was almost February when she told me this. And she said “I guess you’ll have to take my name off your blog, huh?” That’s just silly. Other than that, she likes the site, but I don’t know that she reads it very often. She’s on the internet a lot less than I am, lucky woman.
