Public Update - Welcoming our 1,000th Backer & Look Who's Talking About Us
Because this update is public and not exclusive to backers I'm sad to report it won't be starting with a kid’s joke. I have a great one lined up for my next backers-only update, so if you are already a backer, stay tuned. If you aren't, you can get on board for just $1.
But I had to chime in to say a huge thanks and welcome to our newest 237 backers since my last update on Saturday. And a special thank you to M.M. who, at 9:46pm became our 1,000th backer!
I’m busy working on multiple fronts for you and the project. Some of my time is now being spent speaking publicly about the project to media and bloggers, and describing what I think all of us are doing here. I thought I would share some of this with you since I wouldn't be here without you.
Look Who's Talking
I am so amazed at the reach of this project in such a short time, and how it’s a connection point for people with, on the surface, very diverse interests. For example, I’ve noticed people talking about the book in forums from Wedding Bells Magazine (“start your wedding planning today”) to Living and Raw Foods (“the largest community on the Internet dedicated to educating the world about the power of living and raw foods”). This makes me happy.
If you’re interested in reading what others are saying about our project (our being yours and mine) here are a few highlights:
