Keeping a travel blog updated while traveling the world is not easy, like every blogger knows: writing, editing, optimizing, uploading photos and sharing content demands a lot of time. Maitravelsite (pronounced My-Travel-Site if you ever wondered) began as a website with a blog which I would update every so often due to the old computers and slow internet connections I was finding in South East Asia. It eventually became a full-on blog 11 months ago, and what a ride it has been! During this time I’ve had the opportunity to share my travel experiences around the world with you readers, and have shared travel tips and photography which has been praised by many of you too (thank you for the feedback, it really encourages me to keep going :)). The travelogue has also let me make new friends around the world who I’ll meet at some point if I haven’t already.
As of today (Novemeber 2nd 2010) we have 1795 Twitter followers, 1080 Facebook fans, 97 RSS subscribers, and- check out the graph- we are growing every month. It is now my turn to thank you for being part of this blog and enjoying the travel articles and photography we (myself and guest authors) bring to you each week. Stay tuned because to celebrate this achievement, the first year of the blog (which is right around the corner) and the upcomming holidays I will be holding a contest or giveaway with a superb first prize.
