*UPDATE: December 22, 2013. To everyone who has posted so far, this is amazing! Thank you. We love to read about the varied locations in which you live and the lifestyles you lead and it makes us so happy that we can connect like this with people around the world. We wish we had time to reply to you all individually, but then we wouldn’t have time to keep blogging. Thank you all, even if you’re too shy to comment!*
As you can imagine, writing and posting something every single day is not an easy task. Finding the time and energy can be tough. But tougher still is finding the motivation. Some days my brain wants to convince me that it’s not worth the effort.
“What’s the point,” Brain asks, “when you could be napping/eating/touristing/doing yoga/drinking instead?”
One of the things that helps me silence Lazy Brain is you, dear reader. I think you’re out there, and I hope that maybe if we post something cool or interesting, it will make your day a little brighter.
Some days it’s hard to picture your face though. So today, on the suggestion of reader David, I am asking you to write back. I promise, your effort will make our day a little brighter.
If you’re reading this in real time, after our trip has ended, or in the 29th Century on the planet Zfzxfzw, how ’bout you let us know?
We’d love you to tell us who you are, where you are, and how you stumbled upon My Five Acres in the comments below.
(Yes, even if we already know you, please comment for the sake of posterity.)
Let’s call it an early Christmas present from you to us. ♥
