Sometimes I sit here and come up with blog posts or specials and I'm wondering if I'm working in a vacuum. We don't get a lot of bookings for our pkgs even tho they comprise a lot of things guests do when they're here.
Anyway, I just wrote an off-the-cuff blog about an article I read and a guest called me 2 hours after it posted and thanked me for it. She said it came just when she needed it.

I think it's almost always those off-the-cuff blog posts that get the best responses. They're the ones that really speak from your heart and tell the guests the same stories you might say to them in person. That's what they're looking for. You. Your stories. Your personality. Let them shine and you can't go wrong.

Just got an email from someone who found the blog. Another person who found what she needed when she needed it. (No, no one is booking, just thanking.)

Gratitude has its own value all the same.
These are folks who will remember you. And when they're ready to take a break, they already know an innkeeper who made their day a little bit brighter.
That can't hurt.
