See The World
Seek Adventure Travel Happy
This has been a bit hard for me to decide whether to write this or not. For those of you who have been following the blog for 5 years now, thank you! It has been so wonderful to share our adventures with you. The blog has morphed from a kind of travel diary to sharing tips, strategies, and general life lessons. It's been very cathartic at times to share the good and the not so good here in the cyber world.
The last 8 months or so, Happy Travelers has grown quite a lot. We went from a couple hundred page views a month to nearly 30,000! I don't know where all of those are coming from, but it's been amazing and humbling. It's also been great to have joined forces with Liz and to share all her stories and tips with you.
During all that, life has been one happy whirlwind. I've been feeling a bit of internal pressure to keep up with a few posts a week, which I've been more successful with some weeks and not so much other weeks. As a result, I've been thinking of dialing things back a bit. I wanted to get some reader input though.
I'll still post from time to time, because I love writing the blog. I'd like it to just go back to more of a hobby and less of a second job that pays nothing. So, with that, a few questions for you guys, (you can answer in the comment section below):
1. Are there any posts that you'd like to see in the future, or have been particularly helpful? On the other side of that coin, are there any topics or posts that are not very helpful or interesting?
2. General feedback please...There are tons of travel blogs out there and I'd love your feedback on this one and what you'd like to see in the future, if anything.
Thank you for your support. It has made me so happy when I've received comments about a post being helpful. I really love inspiring people to travel and to pursue their dreams. And if nothing else I hope you've been able to laugh at some of my misadventures.
Cheers and happy travels,
Hi there! I'm Skeeter. I grew up moving a lot and that makes me a bit restless for travel and exploration. I started this blog with my husband Pat when we decided to backpack New Zealand for a year. We are always looking for the next adventure and are loving life. We're just your average couple with two sassy dogs and a love for travel. We're sharing our travels and the tips we pick up along the way.
Hello! I'm Liz. Blogging is very new to me, but I'm so excited to finally write as much as I talk!
