I wanted to shake up my life and go sailing (or learn on the job, so-to-speak) so headed to Florida to crew on a catamaran. This is about how it went or, rather, didn't - and my life since. Hopefully it will lead to a catamaran on the clear aqua blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, watching the sunset, a coconut rum and coke in hand. You must START AT THE BEGINNING of the blog, April 2009, to get the whole story...

I am a bit discouraged by the fact that I rarely get any comments on my blog. It's akin to being on a stage, I think, giving it your all and then when done everyone just looks at you with a blank face in stony silence. I follow about 7 blogs on a regular basis. They get half a dozen comments on every post, at least. So it makes me wonder what I am doing wrong, or if anyone is really interested in this blog. I know I have regular readers; my stat counter shows that quite clearly. And when I post something new, the readership jumps to between 50 and 70 for that day. But the lack of comments is not reflecting the following and I have no idea why. Maybe it's time for me to get off of the stage.

Here's my Amazon Store called Sandra's Selections, full of my favourite things and constantly updating it as I discover more fav's. It's more for fun than anything as I've never made a cent off of it.
