I can barely believe it, my little treasure has turned one year old! After 37 posts, 28 comments, 1 follower and almost 6000 pageviews; The Rough Guide to a Lonely Planet has come of age! What I genuinely cannot believe is the amount of people who find my writing worthy of their precious time and that some of the readers of TRGTALP actually enjoy it...and even come back for more!
Highlights, so far, have been the awesome comments people have taken the time to write about their travel experiences and the inspiration that they have taken from my blog. As well as, the Saturday evening my blog post about Stockholm retweeted by the Swedish Tourist Board, that resulted in TRGTALP pageviews going through the roof! To those commenters, retweeters and readers, I am especially thankful!
So, this is my opportunity to raise a glass of bubbly to what is one of the most enjoyable things I do these days...inspiring you to travel. This blog has never really been about me (though, it can often sound like that some times). The main aim has always and always will be to use my experiences to get you out into the wider world. Get out there, travel, see and experience this wonderful world around you...even if that means breaking out alone.
Here's to the next year! Happy travels, people!
