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.


Elsewhere Online

Over the past week, I’ve written a personal guest post for Darren of ProBlogger, and have been featured in a couple interviews. I’ve linked them here if you’re interested.

  • ProBlogger: From 0 to 2000+ Subscribers in 90 Days
    • If you’re interested in blogging or blog marketing. This 2700 word article details all my blogging secrets (okay, there are no secrets). I’ve posted on ProBlogger instead of here due to unrelated content to ThinkSimpleNow.
    • I’ve put a lot of love into this article and hope that it can be of some help to you and your blogging ventures. If you found the article helpful, please leave a quick note in the comments, so I know you’ve been there. :)

  1. Hey Tina,

    Have a great trip! I will be visiting my home land of India, accompanied by my family, this Summer, as we do every year.

    Hope to read about your experiences with pictures soon.


  2. Hey Tina. I am one of the bloggers who have come over from ProBlogger. You timed your blog on ProBlogger perfectly for me as just a couple days ago I put up my first blog. I am very excited and plan on following your steps to get 2000 RSS subscribers in 30 days. Perhaps I will start by telling everyone here and you, that is my goal, so if anyone gets to my site and finds it interesting, I’d love to have you!

    You are true inspiration as you are living a dream I have for myself. I read Tim Farris book months ago, and LOVE it. I try to stay up to keep it in mind as the case often occurs where I will read a book (or blog for that matter) and get excited about it only to forget it once i put it down (or go to my next blog). Anyway, congrats on the first mini-retirement, all the best, and I am glad to see you taking a good 3 months and not selling yourself short. I only have one suggestion, and this comes from 4-Hour Work Week. Outsource so you do not need to ever post on here while on vacation. I know I do not want to go with out your writing for 3 months, but use guest posters and/or have posts ready and never check back. The subscribes will come on their own, and I let all my blogging friends know about you. Even if they do not find the content to their likeing the success you have is unbelieveable. Thanks again!


  3. you’ll have a fantastic trip

  4. Hi Tina,

    Have a good time… I wish you more success on TSN. ya deserve it, indeed.

  5. I hope you have a fantastic trip as well. You surely deserve it!

  6. Love the site! Your tips and personal journey to this point are inspiring. Keep up the great work and enjoy your trip. Will you be posting pictures of your travel as well?

  7. I’ve had the luckiest day of my my blogging life. I’ve been lucky enough to stumble on a few great posts and your one over at Problogger was arguable to most concise and enjoyable read on blogging.

    You make it all sound so simple.

    So while pleased to have found, subscribed and obviously loved this work in the usual ways, I am really hoping you can keep up the great content during your deserved break.

    I wish you a very enjoyable trip Tina. Asia is a wonderful place, full of so much. I think you’ll be spiritually well nourished during your 3 months!

    Good luck and I can’t wait to see what the experience lends to your writing when you return. Will you be posting while you are away. It would be great to see/read of your experiences as you go.

    Be well

    I recommend Arambol/Goa, a wonderful village with a lovely beach, lots of alternative people and Satsang with Neeru. That is an experience that will change your life. Have a great trip through that magic dream called India.

  11. Hi Tina,

    Enjoy your trip. I just got back from India and I would say Kerala is a must visit.

    Hoping to hear about your experience.
