Damn. I almost looked behind me to see if you were talking about someone else. Don't know what to say except thank you.

@ClayMorgan That's a great point. I'm always amazed at how warm and friendly people are here.
@LauraPetrolino Yes! I know! I'm such an introvert in real life, and this blog makes me feel like I actually have friends. (Wait, how do I delete this...?)
@Danny Brown @Digital_DRK See? This is why you guys are awesome. My point, it is proved. *dusts hands off and walks away*
@corinamanea Aw, thanks :p
@silverbeansam Yeah, I didn't know my post would be published this week, and I was on vacation! I seem to have missed my own party.
Thanks for the comments, everyone. I was away on vacation and didn't even have phone network, and came back home to find tweets about this post.
@Jerry Nihen Thanks, Jerry. I think as long as you approach it as "I'm doing this because I think this is fascinating and I want to learn how this person does it" as opposed to "This is a job and here is my list of questions", the interesting part gets accounted for. And of course a little Googling, to see what the interviewee has said about him/herself in other interviewees, and take on from there instead of going over the same ground.

@JoeCardillo True. One question I ask often is "What do you hate doing but have to do in your work?" Some people say "nothing", but sometimes you get an interesting answer!
@LouHoffman @yvettepistorio Agree with you both! Email interviews are much easier, of course. But live interviews are so much fun (though a lot of work, as you say).
@LouHoffman Thanks, Lou! I agree totally -- an interview is such a great way to reach out to interesting people and get great content for your blog!
