One of the most rewarding experiences in running a blog is interacting with readers. I always enjoy receiving emails with questions on maximizing miles and points, as well as feedback on my posts. Knowing that our content benefits real people is extremely satisfying. Some emails make me laugh out loud, which is always appreciated in this depressing time we live in. Right now my family is bracing for hurricane Irma’s landfall and may end up spending Sunday night in a shelter. At least the kids are excited!
But the post isn’t about that. Today I wanted to share with you an email that put a smile on my face. It came from a reader in New Zealand, an expat who grew up in United States. She is a character, for sure (in a good way). This gal is a busy mom, so sometimes it takes her a few months to catch up on my posts. But I can always count on her commenting eventually. A funny thing to me is the fact that her better half S. likes my posts as well. Why would a Kiwi dude be interested in my writing is a mystery, but I’ll take it. Her latest email had to do with my post back in April, with a title SPG Aloft Brand: “Kombucha” of Hotel World?
Here we go:
Readers, please keep your emails coming. We love hearing from you, whether it’s questions, suggestions or just fun photos/anecdotes from your trips. Nancy and I enjoy helping you guys, and want this blog to be a no-pressure community where you don’t have to worry about someone constantly “selling” you something. So keep in touch, y’all.
Well, I’m off to enjoy my Kombucha drink, spiked with vodka (what else?) I shall call it Kombucharita. Hurricane Irma, here we come!
