More than enough reason to keep posting
Even though I wrote the other day that I sometimes lack the energy to post daily on this blog, regular readers shouldn’t have any fear that I have intentions of giving it up. While bloggers are largely writing to an anonymous audience, I am reminded frequently enough that there are in fact at least a few people out there who care about what gets posted here. As an example, shortly after posting on the ZTC Facebook page that we were anchored in Brewer’s Bay, we received a message from LaDonna, a Facebook follower and blog reader, inviting us over for sundowners on her Lagoon 380 catamaran Beagle Knot. Although LaDonna and I had corresponded online a couple of times, this was the first time we had met in person. We love turning online friends into real friends!
A more extreme example came in the way of a Christmas gift that we received from another blog reader who we have yet to meet in person. Douglas and his wife Tammy, future cruisers I am sure, went to a lot of trouble and expense to purchase and organize a home (boat) entertainment system to go with One Love’s new, larger flat-screen TV (a recent upgrade). While we don’t watch a lot of television, especially when we have guests on board, Rebecca and I do enjoy chilling out with a movie from time to time. Our new Christmas gift, which admittedly I have yet to explore completely, has made it super easy to do so, and much more enjoyable than watching something on my laptop, our SOP up to this point.
Of course, there are all the wonderful comments that we receive on our blog posts which reinforces that yes, there are people reading. That makes it all worthwhile, so thank you, all!
Who doesn’t love getting presents?
Even the case that it came in is awesome!
Yeah, a little better than my 11″ computer screen. 🙂
Speaking of blogs and comments, check out our friend Steve’s post How To Stay Sexy While Sailing Out To Sea on his blog Uncommon Caribbean where he gives Rebecca and I (especially Rebecca!) a huge shout out. There are some great posts on his blog and even though I’m pretty busy, it’s one that I read quite frequently.
