Life on the Bay

I mentioned in a recent blog post on Martha’s Vineyard that Laura and I had a lovely time in Craftworks, a shop featuring American artisans.  I could have spent hours going through hundreds of quotes typed onto handmade paper. 

In the end, I chose a few different quote cards to tack to my bulletin board or use as bookmarks.  These were my four favorites:

There is more to life than increasing its speed. Gandhi

From this hour on I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines.  Walt Whitman

Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life, and the labors of life reduce themselves.  Edwin Teale

Ordinary riches can be stolen.  Real riches cannot.  In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.  Oscar Wilde

Our Facebook Fan Page states the following:

“This page is for those interested in home and/or pet sitting…as well as travel, writing, living simply, and working from home or the road. Exchange ideas with like-minded people here & on our blog”.

Because you are reading this post, there is a good chance that you are interested in at least one of the above. If so, will you tell me which one interests you most?  If not, will you tell me why you are reading this blog (i.e. we are friends and this is the best way for you to keep in touch with us, etc.)?

I am asking this for clarification purposes.  I want to be sure to cater to our target demographic and all of that good stuff.  I am beginning to interview others that I think will educate and/or inspire you.  It looks like I will be taking online courses on blogging and travel writing (starting in May) as well.

We have a lot of ideas, but we want to hear yours.  Really!  What is it that inspires you?  Rapport is the beauty of the blog, after all.  The exchanging and implementing of ideas…I thrive on it.

A Quick Question

Have you, or your business, or a cause you believe in benefited from social media?  
(i.e. your Facebook Page(s), your Twitter Account, Linked In, your blog, linking websites with friends, etc)? 
We would love for you to tell us about it by leaving a comment on this post…
