in ecotrain •  16 days ago

We sure have been asking a lot of questions since July 2017! So far I make it 33, and what better number to create my very first Question Of The Week Almanac! This series is one of our favourites, and we have sure dug deep every week and brought some amazing insights and answers to some very interesting questions. It would probably take you about a year to read every post in every tie up post, but its fun to even just scroll this page and peek at the the list of thumbnails and questions we have asked!


I'd Love to hear which question was your favourite from this list, please do let me know!

Beautiful my friend. Great to look back eh! <3 One thought about your post. You call yourself a 'driver'. Trains are operated by engineers, loco pilots or motorman! ;) Congratulations on such a successful project. Peace to you.

yep.. im SURE there are a few in there from way back.. but you have been with us SO long now!! i think you have witness most of the QOTWs! I have learned so much doing this.. wow..

Wow that's amazing. Ithink Icame onto the train around question 15 so it's fantastic to get links to see some of those earlier quesetions and answers. I've got my reading cut out for me, that's for sure! I love the thought you put into those questions - the only one I didn't like is the Trump one, but we don't talk about that now do we? Ha ha... !!! I missed the last one and I'm not sue I have time for this new one - Ibetter create space in my life just to do that, huh, as they are such fun to answer and teach you alot during the writing process.

yep that sounds about right! WE did have a few good ones at the start for sure! wow it feels like YEARS ago not 12 months~!xx

Great stuff!
Happy to see that you applied my almanac idea to the Question of the Week.

With the magazine idea we could have the number of the issue and the year added to it like @ecoTrain Magazine 4/18 logically leading to @ecoTrain Magazine Almanac 2018.
