The other day one of the bloggers I follow on Twitter announced her 1-year blogging anniversary. This prompted me to check my own history. I felt I was getting close to the 1-year mark, but wasn’t entirely sure. Sure enough, my blogging anniversary was on September 2! Yes, it’s been a year since I started this blog and it’s been a pretty amazing one.
It all started with my 2011 trip to Afghanistan, Shortly after I started blogging, I got a spot on MMS’s weekly interview series. Next, I was asked to guest blog for Frugal Travel Guy. A few months later, I was asked to join BoardingArea. Eight months later I was offered a job as Managing Editor of Frugal Travel Guy and FlyerTalk.
I’m truly grateful for all of these experiences and all that’s come my way as a result of starting this blog. I want to say thanks to all who regularly read, subscribe to, and follow this blog.
As a show of appreciation, I’m going to give away 50,000 Club Carlson Gold Points. I’m a huge fan of the program and there are quite a few ways to put those points to good use. Here are the giveaway rules:
