Best of + Personal Update

Photo by Steve Evans has been live for 4 months and my deepest gratitude goes out to everyone who’s graced me with your readership and amazing support. I love you guys, seriously.

I wanted to personally thank all of you for your insights and feedback in your comments. Thank you for your kind emails. Thank you for helping me realize my dream of contributing to the personal development field.

This is a quick announcement post. Part announcement and part love letter to my readers. :)

A Journey to India

In a few hours. I will be leaving for a 3 months adventure to India. It’s my attempt to test out the concept of mini-retirements, introduced by Tim Ferriss. I view it as a spiritual and creative sabbatical, and I can’t wait.  I am a little nervous though. Perhaps, it is my ego afraid of the unknowns in the weeks to come.

If you’re interested, you can follow my travel blog here. I will do my best to document everything of interest, including hotels, routes, sights and tips. Please let me know if you have any must visit places in India, in the comments.

    Oh, I’m Indian, btw. (Lol! Randomness.) I’ll ask my parents if there is any spiritual place you should check out in particular. Maybe Vaishnu Devi?…

    Wow! you guys are coming to India. I’m sure it’s going to be an enlightening experience :-). The Book Passion Test gives a good account of a person’s spiritual trip to India.

    I’m in Bangalore and a regular reader of your blog. Hope you guys spend some time here.

  16. Welcome to India. To know more about India, I suggest you read this A wide angle view of India by Nita. Link is
    Wish you all the best.

  17. Tina,
    Since 1 January of this year I have been searching, floundering around in a sea of uncertainty about my blog and my goals. I researched and I read, I walked the walk and talked the talk but still I floundered until I came yesterday upon your article on Problogger and hallelujah. Thank you for helping me see that I have too much ego in there, the intentions are great but I need to take ME out.
    I have found my three words: Writing, Wellness and Wisdom although that last one is dodgy as I always feel that those that think they have it, don’t. Anyway best thing I have read on blogging and particularly useful to me.

  18. Enjoy your trip! Be safe and have a wonderful, wonderful time! :)

  19. Hi Tina – Have a GREAT trip and thanks for participating in the interview!!


  20. Hi Tina, I recently discovered your blog through Digg, and have really been enjoying it! I’m also a blogger and found your list of tips to increase readership to be very helpful. My family is from India and I go almost every year. Please let me know if you have any questions or need any info. I’m very familiar with Mumbai and Chennai, with some knowledge of Bangalore. Happy travels! Amreen

  21. Dear Tina and Adam,

    Wishing you the very best for your travels in India. I have picked up your feed here and will also head over to your blog to keep up with where you are and how you are travelling.

    Tina, I remember exchanging a couple of encouraging, positive messages with you last year over on Victory Darwin’s Ning Entrepreneur’s group.

    Wow, you have certainly achieved wonderous things with your blog in the months since then!

    I haven’t been completely idle myself either. I finished a big e-commerce project (my first real-time online e-commerce store for a client, at got my own blog set up in November and am in the early stages of my blogging adventure there.

    It seems to me that your success is in no small part because you have truly expressed your love for people when writing in your blog, offering insights that have contributed to their lives and inspired them in various ways.

    Keep doing what you’re doing Tina Su, it is a blessing for the world.

    Love and light, Namaste,

    Bradley C Hughes

    Take care of yourself and best of luck!

  24. Tina, have a nice and exciting journey. Looking forward to reading your adventures.

  25. Have a safe and enjoyable trip.

    India has said to be heaven and hell on earth. I hope you get to experience the heaven part.
