I haven’t been able to link with your survey page as it keeps cycling back to this page. But… here’s what I think in a nutshell. Your blog is wonderful. It covers issues, ideas and news that I cannot get otherwise. I live in a remote First Nations community in northern Alberta, Canada. I pioneered here 27 years ago. It is tough and isolated as the lone Baha’i, and I am out of the loop most of the time and have little contact with other Baha’is as they are simply too far away. I’m getting to be an old fart now and cannot easily travel the many hundreds of miles to get anywhere else. So sites like yours are my lifeline to the Baha’i community at large. After reading blogs like yours, I feel much closer to our global community.
Thank you for all your hard work and devotion to Bahá’u’lláh. It is very, very much appreciated by this isolated Baha’i.

Thanks so much for the wonderful feedback Denis and I’ve sent you a personal email. Really happy to hear that Baha’i Blog is having this sort of effect! Thanks for taking the time to let us know!

Denis I feel for you as I was in a similar situation (not pioneering) for many years. I was in a place with no active Baha’is a long trip for others to come to see me. Consequently a lot of spiritual development never happened although I remained a loyal Bahai. Since my non Baha’i husband died 6 years ago I joined a great little community here in the North Island of New Zealand and am catching up on Baha’i studies now (although bad health keeps me absent from most meetings) I have an excellent teacher – we are studying The Covenant at the moment – fascinating stuff.

If you feel like keeping in touch or need to talk about anything – I am here.

I find some of the items interesting. I do not like items which are primarily sales pitches.

I tried to take the 5 minute survey but it cycled to this page.

One of the things I love about Baha’i Blog is the continuous drive to improve. I don’t know many blogs that would do a survey like this in an effort to make a good thing even better. Keep it up!

Your Baha’i blog is an excellent item. I haven’t signed up to any other blogs and I am a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to being up-to-date with web sites and other communications on the ether. You include a great variety of topics, some deal with ‘hot-off-the press’ issues (such as the House of Justice message about the Badi calendar), others are timely reminders about what we should be doing and thinking about in our busy lives. Well done and keep up with the good work!
