2018 is a record year for Carryoncouple

Carryoncouple thanks you for helping our blog travel to new territory in 2018. Our site has recorded nearly 5,300 views this year, surpassing our record from 2013, when we walked the Camino de Santiago. Your interest in our Way of St. Francis trek this spring exceeded all our other trips, including 181 in one day.

Since our kickoff in 2012, carryoncouple.com has recorded more than 25,000 views in 119 countries, led by the USA, the UK, Canada, Australia and Italy. We await someone in Antarctica to extend our reach to every continent.

What is our most popular post? It comes from our 2012 visit to Verona, Italy. Pictured above, our post about the Basilica di San Zeno still attracts views and has been seen nearly 700 times.

Here’s to Word Press, to nearly 400 followers, and to many more adventures!

Word Press blogging is habit forming

carryoncouple.com is a razor-thin part of the Word Press blogosphere of millions of blogs.

Regardless, Sue and I love writing bits and publishing photos from our travels and other post-work experiences. We enjoy hearing from family and friends via blog comments or “likes” during our trips. We also hear from people from all over the globe. It is a lot of fun and satisfies our publishing addiction from our newspaper days.

After two-and-a-half years, we have done about 200 posts and our blog has been viewed more than 11,200 times by people in nearly 100 countries. We have had more than 820 comments.

After a day on the trail, we often pour a glass of wine, look through our photos, and write a short narrative about the day. When we publish a post, we often hear a ping that indicates a “like” or comment has been registered. We love these, but the best part is the “publishing.”

The blogging world is like a humungous bookstore. People browse with no obligation. We are amazed at who finds our blog. We are honored that 190 people are “followers.” Admittedly, some are out to make money on their blogs by expanding their reach, but we are under no obligation either.

Thanks, everyone. And thanks to Word Press for providing a free platform that even we have figured out how to use (with some assists from our patient son Andrew).
