Who Cares?

The frustration of publishing this blog with sketchy Internet is sometimes overwhelming. I need to know who cares if I continue to bang my head against this bloggy wall. Perhaps I should resort to the 30 second "sound bite" and just post to Facebook; is everyone's attention span really that small? Please convince me to continue by posting a comment. If I receive even 5 comments I will continue, but less than that, maybe not....

Yes Laura please continue to publish your blog. I check Fortunes Afloat every day or so to see what kind of new adventures you and Malcom are doing on your trip.

Thank you,
Danny Parker

Malcolm & Laura,
I care. Every Sunday I pull up your blog and read it and give a summary to Ernie. If you were to go on FB I would not get such an interesting story. I live vicariously through your blog.

PS Malcolm, I miss your calls.

Thank you Helen for the nice comment. I will keep blogging when I have Internet. It's just not very good sometimes and I get frustrated trying to upload the photos. I will keep blogging though. Malcolm says "Hi" to you both.

Thanks Katie for the comment. I do enjoy blogging and it is fun, but when we've got dodgy Internet it's like torture. But the creative process is sometimes painful, eh? I'll keep blogging. Read and enjoy when you can. Love you too.
