It's hard to believe it's been a year since Thrifty Traveler was launched! When it all began, it was only my mom and a handful of friends who read the website. The site launched with my American Travel Guide to Cuba, which helped to get things rolling. Our first full month in May 2015, only had 6,000 page views. Through this morning we've had over 260,000 page views for this month alone! The site is growing rapidly, and we have you, the readers to thank for everything. We love you guys!
As we launch into the second year of the site, I would like to make an invitation to all of you:
Become More Engaged!
Write a guest post. I'll be honest, I don't have much time to write content. We are primarily focused on flight deals now, and that takes up a significant part of my day. Are you going on an awesome trip and you'd like to share how you saved money doing it? Or do you want to write about travel in general similar to our contributors Nick Serati or Gary Bushrod? Write a guest post! Ideas are always welcome. Use the contact page to get in touch.
Share blog posts. How many times have you saw something on ThriftyTraveler.com and thought, “Hey, so and so would really like this?” Did you share it with that person? I’ve made it easy to share links from ThriftyTraveler with the Facebook Like button, and Twitter share button. You could share this post now!
By leaving comments you help grow the conversation around the Thrifty Traveler. The more you share your insights and experiences, the more other readers can learn. We try to share as much information as possible, but each of you have rich travel experiences to share that are valuable. Do you have a tip for a flight deal destination? Leave it in the comments!
Support the site. Hosting and managing this site isn't cheap. Next time you book a flight deal, make sure to use our links in each post. You don't have to of course, but we greatly appreciate your support. Another way to financially support the site is to apply for your next credit card in our top credit cards section!
Ask for what you need. Want to see a specific flight deal? Email me! Want to see some specific content? Let me know by contacting me.
I'm very excited to see where Thrifty Traveler will be in another year. As we continue to grow and evolve we want you to be involved in the process. Feel free to contact me anytime at [email protected] with suggestions, ideas, or flight tips!
