December 4, 2021 update. The contest closed on December 1st, thank you to all who participated. Winners will receive a follow up email.
Hello blog readers. The past couple of years have been rough on all of us. For many, it has been a time to reflect and make changes in our lives. So what does this mean for this blog? The end is coming for the blog once I finish up what I have left to post. The passion to keep the blog going is just not there for me anymore. It has been a ton of fun to visit these places, but it is time for me to move on at this point in my life. This blog was in the works since 2008 before going live in 2009, a very long run.
I initially planned to stop making trips in 2020 to specifically cover retail. Some of the places I wanted to visit did not make the cut last year. I decided to try and finish the last few places by the end of this year if I can make it. If not, I will not cover those places. I still have a huge backlog of photos and some video that will get me to 500 posts which will keep blog posts rolling through 2022 and possibly into 2023. I will continue to reply to comments on the blog, but I will no longer be participating in social media related to retail in the near future.
As for the new Thank you contest 👇
The contest giveaway will still happen. The Youtube channel will no longer be the focus since I am still well short of the 100 subscribers I was hoping to get to. As for the updated contest, it will be done by email. Entries submitted to my email by December 1st at firstname.lastname@example.org will be entered into the drawing. Please submit your name or screen-name in the email along with your request to be entered into the drawing. Addresses must be in the continental United States for eligibility. Only 1 entry per person! This contest is my way of saying thank you to each and everyone for sticking with me all of these years.
