This week marks FOUR straight years travel blogging on AroundTheWorldL.com! When I published my first ever post on July 26, 2009 right before leaving Boston to circumnavigate the globe, I had no idea that travel blogging would bring me so much joy that I would carve out hours each day for the next four years to work on it… and look forward to blogging for many more years to come!
Statistics-wise, I have now published 543 articles on this site, averaging an article every 2.6 days. Since its launch, Around the World “L” has received over 800,000 pageviews from around the world!
Do YOU blog, or are you considering blogging? I have started running workshops on blogging (as it gives me a chance to geek out about one of my favorite topics with likeminded people), and some advice I’d give potential bloggers is that it takes something. It takes a level of persistence and consistency to build audience and content, which in turn necessitates the kind of obsession only generated by mad love. Here’s to many more years of passion-induced blogging!
