The Vine: January 26, 2011
Dear Sarah and Tomato Nation,
It's Green here, saying a big thank-you to all of you for your fantastic suggestions and very kind invitations for our U.S. road (and air) trip. I had the most amazing time and I can't thank you enough for the great mood you put me in before we even started out on the U.S. leg of my trip. Given how cool every single person was that we met, I can only presume the TN readership is…big. Like, the-whole-of-America big.
So I'm home now and kind of settling back into real life, but I still haven't really done anything with my photos or my travel diary given there was just no time to compile something electronic as we went. So I am wondering, given the magnitude of wonderful comments you all shared before the trip, if some of you might be interested in seeing what we did, and have any suggestions on how to share it? I don't have Facebook and am not overly great with computers but could maybe manage a simple blog or something. I guess it's so far after the fact now that I wondered if you'd still want to see it "day by day," or if photos with some comments are of more interest, or what?
I hope it doesn't sound hideously self-involved, this question, but I was just so staggered by your kindness and generosity in making such heartfelt suggestions that I thought letting you know what we did and what we loved might be a small way of saying thanks to you all.
You guys are awesome!
So glad to hear from you, and that the States treated you right.
A Tumblr would work well for a travel memoir; it's super-easy to use, and you could scan things in and make as many or as few notes as you want. It's probably worth doing anyway, just so you have everything in one place and can point people to it easily.
As for how to lay it out and what to include, I come from the "huck it all in a box" school of "organization," so I'll let the readers share their experiences with putting scrapbooks and online albums together. Readers?
