I decided to make it official: 2016 was an amazing year for Holiday on my Mind. The blog was launched on 7 September and it already reached over 4000 readers from across the globe – that means around 1000 views per month (if you are a blogger yourself you know this is a big deal for a new blog). It is an honor knowing that 4000 people chose to read MY blog when there are millions, millions of other travel blogs out there. I remember I felt drunk when I reached over 100 shares for the first time, when my Switzerland’s Top Christmas Markets blog post was repined 600 times, or when my Facbeook and Twitter pages got 1000 followers each.
