It’s probably been just about a year since I started this blog. But recently in the last few months now that we’re actually on our trip it’s all been kicking off. My monthly views have shot up from just 81 in January all the way to 2,152 by the end of April. It’s been a big jump and it’s been an even bigger learning curve.
