It’s been about 2 years since I dove back into blogging on a regular basis, focusing largely on travel. I’ve always really enjoyed writing but I never really found a medium where I could be successful. Since diving back in I’m really enjoying writing on a daily basis. More importantly, I’m really enjoying helping folks travel places they might not otherwise be able to.
I was excited to be approached by friend and fellow travel blogger Daraius of Million Mile Secrets to conduct an interview about my little corner of the internet. That interview went live just a short time ago, and I had a lot of fun thinking about my answers to his questions.
He asked me some great questions, including what my readers would be surprised to learn about me. I thought I came up with good answers, but my mind kept racing after we were done, coming up with all kinds of quirky things. Like the fact that I’ve never missed a single episode of Survivor. And, that at least once a year, I show up at an airport or hotel without the reservation I thought I had.
I used to enjoy acting and singing in a choir. And, nowadays, one of my favorite activities to relieve stress is to break out my chain saw and ax and chop wood for the winter. Apparently, after marrying a sweet country girl, I turned into a less-sweet country guy!
As a side note, if you’re enjoying my blog (or just got here) and want to follow along, you can sign up for daily updates by entering your e-mail address in the box on the right-hand side labeled “Feed Me Pizza”. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter to catch up on great travel deals and helpful hints. You can also e-mail me at ed -at- milepoint dot com if you have questions I can help with.
I wanted to have some fun thanking my readers today, so I’ll be giving away some Amazon gift cards.
I’ll give away (1) $100 Amazon gift card to a reader randomly selected from all entries. I’ll also give away (2) $25 Amazon gift cards to two entries I enjoy reading. It’s a win-win. A few lucky readers get Amazon gift cards and I get the Ultimate Rewards points for buying them at an office supply store!
I’m asking folks to leave a comment here with one of two things:
1. Your best travel tip. Anything you’ve learned to make travel easier, cheaper, more fun, you name it.
2. Something you’d like to see me cover as part of my blog posts.
You can enter once a day. Please do me a favor and don’t make me have to disqualify folks for trying to cram the ballot box.
You have until 11:59 pm on Monday, January 13th to enter. I’ll announce winners after that.
Thanks again for hanging out in my little sliver of the “World Wide Web”. If nobody stopped by to read, this wouldn’t be very much fun!
