Today, April 6, marks my 100th post! When I started this blog, it was to journal about all of the trips that we take as a family. If someone saw it and could benefit, great! If not, I would have a great way to backup photos and memories. Once I started blogging, I realized that I enjoyed sharing this info and meeting all of the great travel bloggers and readers out there. Allow me to brag for a second while I showcase a few of those who have helped me get where I am today!
The most exciting accomplishment since starting this blog was to be able to participate in Passports with Purpose. Even though I was just starting out, I was welcomed with open arms by travelbloggers, Beth (Wanderlust and Lipstick), Debbie (Delicious Baby), Michelle (Wandermom), and Pam (Nerd’s Eye View) and was able to participate in this great fundraiser. Travel bloggers all over the world helped to raise over 7000 dollars! Wow!
Since I started this website, the second most exciting accomplishment was being mentioned in the Top 20 Family Travel Blogs and Websites on Have Kids Will Travel. The funniest thing about this was that I was reading the list thinking “Wow…what a great group of people. I love reading all these blogs” and holy cow…there I was….#18!
Travels with Children has chosen two of my articles for her Finding More Fun column. Once on 12/6/08 for my article titled Thirteen Things to do in New Orleans When Traveling with Small Children and also on 4/1/09 for my article titled Five Things to do in Washington DC with Children Under 5.
I am following some awesome travelers on Twitter and have 276 followers myself.
Travel Blogger Tuesday is my new favorite thing to post. I love to hunt the web for great travel bloggers to showcase every Tuesday. I have featured 10 great travel bloggers so far and can’t wait to continue!
One of my favorite pictures from our Europe vacation was featured on Bootsnall’s Photo of the Day.
Here are the articles that you and I have liked the best:
In which direction is this blog headed? I have purchased the domain name and have set up hosting for my website. In the next few months, I hope to have my new website up, running and ready to launch. I look forward to exchanging articles with other travel bloggers out there. I am also looking forward to my first giveaway!
