100 Days of Sunshine turns 6 Months Old!

Wow, it’s been half a year already? Seems like time just flew. Exactly 6 months ago I set up this blog on WordPress and my first post was published on the 15th of September. It’s been a wonderful journey so far and this blog has brought me nothing but happiness, but now I’m starting to think about monetization. About 4 months in, sometime in January, a friend of mine came to me and asked me to set up a fun Weekend Birthday Itinerary for her and her husband somewhere in Europe, which I would actually be paid for. This was my first gig offer, and I remember how excited I was about it. I think that any person that finds themselves in a field they feel so passionate about would at first feel slightly awkward and surprised to be paid for something they madly love to do. When I first started researching Travel Blogging last year, I noticed thatsuccessful travel bloggers suggested attending Travel Blogging Events. This was in the very early stage, because I started looking at …

100 Days of Sunshine hits the 100 Country mark

I checked earlier this week how many countries 100 Days of Sunshine is viewed in and I was at the 99 country mark and wanted to do this post when I hit 100. At 9pm on Friday local time, I was at a 112 country mark and I’m attaching a photo collage of all of those 112 countries in the order of highest viewing numbers to lowest for my blog. Since then, I’ve had a few more new countries appear, and I am adding a photo of my current country stats. I am at 120 country mark this morning. So fun to see new countries pop up in there 😀 Also at the very bottom is a World Map view of all those 120 countries so far. Thank You Viewers for helping me achieve this awesome milestone! ❤ Click on the photo bellow for a larger image

2014 in review

My baby blog is just over 3 months old. Here is my 1st annual report. The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,800 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it. Click here to see the complete report.
