Have Fun Do Good Reader Survey: 10 Questions

During my blogging sabbatical ~ yes, I'm aware that I'm blogging right now :)  ~ I'm doing lots of thinking about where Have Fun * Do Good has been over the past seven years, and where I want it to go for the next seven.

You are the whole reason I write Have Fun * Do Good, so I've created a 10-question Have Fun * Do Good Reader Survey. Would you take a few minutes to answer the questions?

I'd love to learn a little more about you, and what is important to you. All of your responses will remain anonymous. Thanks so much!

Blogging Sabbatical Till August 9

In honor of Have Fun * Do Good's upcoming 7-year anniversary on August 19, I'm taking a little blogging sabbatical till August 9.  Seven years seems like a good time to take a break and reflect on where Have Fun * Do Good is going, and where it has been.

I may put up one post during that time with a Have Fun, Do Good Reader Survey that I'd love for you to take.

Swimming with a Sea Turtle (Video): Water Wednesday

On World Oceans Day (June 8), I pledged to highlight the oceans on Have Fun * Do Good for four weeks. For this fourth and final week, I'm sharing a video of a sea turtle swimming in Hawaii.

Watching this video, I can't help but think about one of the top emailed and viewed New York Times stories today, The 'Busy' Trap.  Maybe we all need to take a lesson from the sea turtle, and slow down. If you're feeling a little overwhelmed today, watch the turtle swim.  Nothing really happens.  Just a turtle gliding through the turquoise water. That's the beauty of it.

If you'd like to learn more about sea turtle conservation, check out these orgs (note: I'm not familiar with their work, just providing the links as a resource):
Also, read this Treehugger article by Jaymi Heimbuch, First Ever Map of Floating Plastic Aims to Save Baby Sea Turtles.

P. S. If you'd like me to continue with the Water Wednesdays series, lemme know.
