It’s time for my annual summer vacation. This year, as a token of my appreciation + relationship reconnection after writing a book, moving to Indiana, and then embarking on a six month book tour, I am taking my wife to Vahine Island, a 23-acre motu in Tahaa, French Polynesia.
There are only 9 rooms on the entire island, and essentially nothing to do other than be mesmerized by your surroundings. There is allegedly Wi-Fi, however, so I’ll try to upload a couple of photos and videos. (if you catch me doing more than that, you have my permission to digitally slap me back into vacation mode)
Before and after our island adventure, we’ll be back in Arizona and California, catching up with friends and family, so I’ll be half-working some of that time. Consequently, I’m taking three weeks off from Convince & Convert blogging.
But you won’t even miss me a little bit, as I have an amazing array of guest posts lined up that will make you laugh, ponder, argue and holler. Here’s the upcoming cast of characters, and the knowledge they’ll be dropping around here:

It’s going to be quite a run. Last year, a few of the guest posts ended up in my Top 25 most popular posts of the year, proving that I’m pretty superfluous to this operation. Please support these great guests with your tweets, shares, comments and the like. They’ll appreciate it. Me too.
Thanks as always for your support. I’ll drink something with coconut in it in your honor.
