Travel blog has turned six months. Results

The other day I returned from a mountain hike in the Crimea. I apologize to whom I could not immediately respond to comments. I will tell you about the trip sometime later, when thoughts calm down and photographs are processed. It was an interesting experience for me - the first independent trip, when I myself led a group of people. For someone nonsense, but for me for the first time.

While I was away, my travel blog was half a year old. And I thought that maybe someone would be interested in what was achieved during this time.

So my modest achievements.

Puzomerki: TITs20, PR1.
Attendance of the blog is constantly changing, and is 300-500 people per day.
The number of readers through the feedburner fluctuates and is about 140 people. There are over 2400 readers on Twitter. How many of them are real, I honestly do not know, I think that a lot less.
The number of comments left on the blog minus my own is about 900.
The number of posts written to this point - 52.

What else do they write there, gentlemen SEO? And by the way, who knows how good / bad this is? Just keep in mind that this is my first blog and the first Internet project, and also that all promotion was free methods.

In March of this year, I was left without work, and began to work closely on my travel blog, and also to fulfill my dream of seeing the world. I wrote about this in a post Why am I running this blog or blogger's dream.

Where have I gone for this time and where have I been?

1. By car to Estonia: Moscow-Tallinn.
2. By car in Mtsenskand to the museum Yasnaya Polyana.
3. By car to Holy source in Talezhe.
4. On the burning tour in Egypt at Sharm El Sheikh. And there already on excursions in Cairo and to Egyptian pyramidsto the top mountains of moses in egypt.
5. By train to Caucasusand then a short walk in Tuapse mountainswalking on wild beaches of Dzhanhotand by the mountains of Gelendzhik to the fortress, where they filmed the movie Thunder Gates.
6. Independently drove 1500km Turkey, having tried all types of transport, including hitchhiking. And visiting places such as: Demre (Worlds). Olympus and Cirali. Kemer. Antalya. Side. lake beysehir. Goreme. Ankara, Karasu, Istanbul.
7. went to mountain hike in the Crimea.

Travel is quite modest, without exotic countries and continents. But agree, not bad for an ordinary unemployed person.

And what next?

And then everything will be the same, I will continue to travel, take pictures and write.

Also at this stage I want to trymonetize the blog. I will add it to Blogun and I will post guards. That it is very often advised for this kind of earnings. I will also try to write and take thematic articles from the stock exchange of miralinks articles. Maybe hang donation bar, or a couple of banners. But in no case will I turn this site into an advertising platform, since this is primarily my hobby. And during these six months, I only confirmed my intention to continue to travel and write about it, as well as the intention to create and develop Internet projects.

As it turned out, a blog is a good tool.self-organization. Sometimes it was only thanks to him that trips were made, or photographs were taken. Also, the blog is good in order to understand what you want in life and try something new. In general, for myself, I consider the last six months to be quite a fruitful period in my life. So I wish all novice bloggers to not despair at the initial stages and develop their projects further.

P.S. Who has not yet participated in my competition "The most memorable journey"hurry up! There is a month left until the completion of applications.

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
