Fan Mail for Our Blog

Sometimes my email or mail brings a lovely reminder of how nice it is when a guest reaches out to us to let us know we have made a difference for them.  Such was the case this week.  I'll let you read our correspondence for yourself to see why this week was a particularly happy one for me:

Subject: thanks for the blog

Hello Juli,   (I live in the last house on Herbert St, right next to your hotel parking lot)

I accidentally found your blog when I was on the hotel website.  Thanks for taking the time to keep it up.  I signed up to be a follower but I'm not sure yet what that means.  I love the pictures of the Titanic Tea Party.  Those costumes were amazing and the hats are awesome!  I would love to see more pictures if you get them.

I tried out the Salem Spins bike last week.  I appreciate how the hotel is participating in the program.  I just rode the bike down to the Willows and then rode back to the hotel and returned the bike.  It was a very simple transaction.  I hope everyone takes good care of those bikes so the program lasts a long time.  I think it's a great idea.

You're such a helpful resource for newcomers like me.  I've been reading some of the past blogs.  It's a very easy website to navigate.  I've lived here since last June and love learning about the activities that are going on around town.  I'm starting to feel like I belong in Salem now.  I will recommend your blog to other people in town.

I always wonder if anyone is reading my blog.  Thanks so much for being a fan.  Do you mind if I post your email on the blog?

I hope I have a chance to meet you someday.

Warm regards,

  1. Awesome info! I was honestly just thinking about something similar to this other day so, it was almost weird when I ran across this. You would be surprised how many people simply have no idea when it comes to this kind of stuff. Anyway, thanks for getting this cool info out there and I am sure I am not only one who appreciates you taking time to post this for masses.
