Daily Gratitude and a Short Survey


I try to live with gratitude every day, so I don’t have anything especially important to say about the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday that takes place tomorrow.

Have fun! Eat pie! Try not to fly domestic!

The rest of the post is for my regular readers.

If you’re new or just come through once in a while, feel free to skip it. Check back on Friday, in between your shopping errands if you’re brave enough to venture to the mall.

Regular Readers —

First of all, you guys are amazing. Even though this isn’t a Thanksgiving-themed post, I’m truly grateful for your time and attention.

Second, I’ve been making progress on a number of things that have been in the works for a while: the site redesign, the book proposal, an interactive project, and general world domination for 2009 and beyond.

For those who you who are in my small army — specifically, if you enjoy the content here and are actively following along each week, would you complete a quick survey for me?

It will take about 90 seconds of your time (less if you type really fast!) and will help me with the planning for each project mentioned above. Then, come back on Friday and Monday as usual for a more detailed essay.

**Go Here to Take the Survey**

Fellow U.S. citizens and residents, enjoy the holiday tomorrow. Everyone else, if someone from the States doesn’t write you back over the next few days, now you know why.

    Something I forgot to mention in your survey: What I like most about your site is when I’m able to apply the wisdom gained from your travels into my own travel-less life. In other words, I like the site. A lot.

  • What’s with the short survey duration? It says that it’s already closed.

  • Chris says:


    Thanks so much; that is very kind of you.

    I learned a lot from what many of you guys had to say in the survey, and I’ll be sharing more about that in the next update.


    Well, I kept it up for 4 days, but don’t worry if you missed it — we’ll do another one after the site redesign goes up.
