January recap - facts, numbers and thoughts

by - Wednesday, February 01, 2017

Hello there!!

So, we've got an extra post this week! 🎆

January just ended and I must say that it was a good month; busy, chaotic, fun, with more blogging than before, more social media interaction, more followers, more feedback, more, more....

If I would select the word of the month, it would have to be "more".

As I previously said, I do not write for the numbers, but it does feel very good to have more feedback, more interaction with fellow bloggers and honestly, be more active with this fun hobby of mine.
Blogging is a hobby for me! And I intend to keep it that way, which does not mean it is easier than any "pro-blogger".
What it actually means is that, most of my free time is taken by blogging related activities.
Do I mind it? No! Once I get in the flow, it becomes even more interesting and fun, I must say.

So yeah, one of my goals for 2017 was to find (actually, make) the time for my hobbies, and so far, I think I'm doing well. Only the work-out item is not 100% yet... #notetoself

But let's get back to the subject of this post: January recap!

I would really like you, reader/follower/visitor, to keep coming back and leave your feedback on the comments section.
From this side of the screen, let me tell you that there is more in the pipeline! 😉

This month, a Facebook page was finally created  (haven't you noticed?!); there I share my latest  blog posts, blog related activities or preps. If you will, give it a Like:

In summary:
  • More than 21k total page views
  • Almost 100 likes on FB
  • More than 30 followers on GFC (google friends) 
  • Your favorite post was "24 hours in Portugal": Read again
  • 10 posts were published this month: Stories of this month

This may not be a big deal for some people, but to me, it means a LOT!

I just hope February will be as nice as January or, maybe, even better!

Feel free to spread the word, share the blog, like it on FB and/or follow via the several social media platforms (all available on the side bar).

From my side; I can only promise to keep up with the schedule of at least 2 posts a week (Monday + Thursday @ 9am CET), and when time allows, I will write some more.

It's fun to have a hobby and have the opportunity to share it with so many people!

Thank you | Obrigada!!!

See you very soon!

Next post: February 2nd @ 9am CET
