Big news + a big favour

Hello Internets. After a seemingly endless hiatus I have returned to you, and it is awesome. I missed you dearly.

I took some time off from social media, this blog, etcetera, to get married. (That's the big news, I'm married.) And by 'took some time off' I mean my attention span during those few weeks of wedding prep and wedding decompression was that of a llama, and I nearly forgot how to use a keyboard. But seriously, weddings are awesome, and I loved mine, and I can't wait to write about it later once I've had time to gather my thoughts about it. And by 'gather my thoughts' I mean I am holding it out in front of myself like a carrot to motivate me to finish my thesis so I can finally write for fun again.

On that note, I need to ask you a BIG FAT FAVOUR. I've received a fantastic response from my calls on Facebook and Twitter for help with my thesis research (thank you!!) but I need a few more respondents to complete my research.

I will be forever in your debt if you click over and complete this quick survey about tourism in Amsterdam (it should take you 5 minutes, maximum, and is totally anonymous). I became really interested in destination branding (of cities, countries, etc.) through this blog actually, and my interactions with the blogging community, so begging for your assistance in a blog post makes it feel like everything is coming full circle ;)

I'm technically not allowed to bribe you to help me with my thesis research, but the faster I get 'er done, the faster we can all relive the magic that was my matrimony process (it was a process, people) through photos and words.

But, more importantly, the faster I can finally scratch that itch that has been building for weeks to write.

  1. Hmm...trying to help, but the link keeps on going to the 'surveymonkey' front page (i.e. the website's front page and not your survey). Is there something wrong with the link or is it just me?

    1. Thanks for your help Colleen! The balloons were a ton of fun. We gave them away to strangers on the street afterwards :)
