I was doing my daily Google Reader perusal and it occurred to me how grateful I am for all the blogs out there that have helped us so much in our preparation to go cruising. I've gleaned so much info from them, been encouraged to keep going when the V-drive going got rough, been entertained, and in some small way included in the cruiser community even though we're not official cruisers yet. The one thing I've never been is ridiculed by any of them. My comments and questions (loads of them) have generated thoughtful, encouraging responses in every case.  If you're thinking about The Dream, please visit these cruisers who have been so helpful to us and let them know we sent you. These are just a few of the ones I follow, but have been the most influential.

If you're a cruiser already, never underestimate how much your experience means to those of us in the planning stages. As you already know, it's an overwhelming thing to try and sometimes we lose all hope of succeeding and your kind words keep us on track.  So keep them coming, and Thanks!

Aww shucks, you're welcome guys. Wait, I offered encouragement? I'll have to show this to my psychiatrist.

I never get this praise over at the Resentment Project, but that's a whole different crowd.
