We re-started this blog in January 2017, after taking a hiatus from a blog we had that wasn’t going anywhere. It was a way to express ourselves and use what we had learned from our past experiences running lifestyle blogs and online stores. While we did have some fairly vague goals – like “start an online business”, we had no idea how far and fast this blog would come in a short period of time. Now, we’re working on an eBook, some courses to tie in with The Art of Blogging, and relaunching an online shop with our very favourite gear. We’re happier at doing this than we’ve been in some time.
Now, we know some of you are rolling your eyes, but just hear us out. I happen to be a pretty sentimental guy, and I’ve always believed in the idea that things happen for a reason. Thanks to this project, I’ve met some great people I’m happy to call friends (Gavin, Praveen, Scott), and my belief in what this blog could become long term has jumped in confidence. Three months in, and we have firm plans for 1 year, 2 year and 5 years out. That’s an amazing gift.
Anyways, for the first couple of days we blogged our hearts out by barely had any views. No one was checking in on us anymore – did we take too long a hiatus? Well, in the last 30 days we did 7,500 page views on this blog. That’s close to our five month goal of 10,000 per month. We are beyond excited.
