As the 21st century began its last year as a teenager, carryoncouple turned seven in record-setting fashion.
Our travel blog collected 8,758 views from 3,654 visitors in 2018, both eclipsing our previous record of 5,232 views by 1,561 visitors in 2013, the year we walked the Camino de Santiago.
People stopping by our blog represented 75 countries, led by the USA with 5,813 views. Canada was in second place for much of the year, but lost the No.2 title to the United Kingdom, which had 486 views, topping Canada by nine views.
Our 2012 post from Italy–Basilica Honors San Zeno–mysteriously continued to attract attention, with 91 views, but lost its 2017 top post title to another surprising choice, Coming Soon to Amazon. Was it the “coming soon” or just the word “Amazon” that attracted the clicks? Or Sue’s book cover? We remain puzzled by the record-setting (for us) 564 views of the post from many countries.
Although our numbers are humble by WordPress standards, we remain thankful to our blog followers and viewers. We hope to keep the interest going through several adventures in 2019, including another one with backpacks, to be announced.
