When I launched Travel Itineraries blog-website eight months ago, I had no idea, experience, or understanding of what it would take to maintain it. It is like a child that needs constant attention, love and care. Good thing I know the adage that says, “It takes a whole village to raise a child.” That’s where my followers come in. Their interest, attention, comments and likes have engendered the growth of the site into the viable entity it is today.
200 followers are not a large number, the actual number as of today is 226, but it is not a meager stat by any means. In fact, my 200+ followers are the bedrock of the site and just the community I need to ensure that TI‘s growth continues progressively. They are the crucial link to the site’s existence. They are the ones who got in on the ground level and are helping to shape the dynamics of what TI is all about and the contributions she makes. So, followers, this is all about you.
Travel Itineraries landed on the world’s stage with a bang in July 2017. She received 177 views in one day mainly from USA, Canada and Barbados. Friends oohed, ahhed and said how beautiful she was. Some sent messages to their social media communities echoing her existence. Over time, she has gained global interest and to date 83 countries are included in her fan base. She has grown to a level where she receives adoring fans on a weekly basis. Every newborn needs support. Lots of it. My brainchild is no different. She demands attention and constant care, which at times can be all-consuming, but those are just aspects of her nature. Despite her demanding attributes and challenges, she also brings incredible joy and happiness to my daily life.
I want to thank my community peeps from the depths of my heart for their support, comments and likes from inception to now. WordPress Happy Engineers for their patience and wealth of knowledge. Family and friends who continue to encourage and care for TI by occasionally checking in on her and giving their suggestions for her progress.
Two thousand thanks are more apropos of my heartfelt appreciation for the time you take to read the blogs, peruse the website pages, purchase a travel itinerary, view videos and photo gallery and the like. Your time and interest in Travel Itineraries’ growth, content and contribution are valuable to me.
As always, fellow bloggers on the WordPress, LinkedIn, Google+ platforms, please drop a note in the comment box, follow or like to let me know your solidarity. I look forward to hearing from you.
