A Change on This Blog

This blog has been wonderful for me with feedback. There are a bunch of like minded people out there who to turn me on to things I’m into, and give me advice, leads, facts, and criticism. Totally great, especially out here in the boondocks.

   BUT I’m getting so many good tips in the “Comments” section here that I can’t keep up with them all. I need to get this book done!

   What I’ve been doing is going to the link recommended and if I like it, make it into a post — which takes time — downloading images, selecting text, creating a link, then posting.

   I do this because I don’t think many people read comments on old posts, and a bunch of these things are so great. It’s got to the point where I have a backlog of referred URLs to post, and it stresses me out to look at them all in my (Eudora — still) inbox in the morning

   SO! I’m going to start posting the comments (or emails) as they come in, au naturel, so you can check them out from scratch. Big time-saver for me. To wit:

Hey Lloyd,

A filmmaker friend of mine just completed a short film about a boot-maker in Pendleton, Oregon who is searching for someone to carry on his legacy. Thought you might want to help spread the word.

From Mike W:

“….Have you ever felt trapped in a static life you didn’t choose? Ever considered just walking away from it all and creating your own adventure? When Josh and Jessa Works asked themselves these questions, they answered by loading their son Jack into an Airstream and launching into an exploration and rediscovery of America, not in search of a place to settle, but rather creating a new kind of home out of wandering….”

Thanks for all your good work.  Been a fan for more years than either of us would want to admit <g>.

About Lloyd Kahn

He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated.

Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

    Lloyd, for me , I think I will find it interesting. At times I do go over some (SOME) of the old posts/comments, and find new comments.

    I find a lot of interesting stuff, and I think this will be worth a trial for you to see if others like it too.

    thks

  3. Works for me, I think that's a good way to deal with it. Look forward to many more.
