It's hard to believe it's been two years since Thrifty Traveler was launched! When it all began, it was only a few 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 (5,998 being my Mom). For comparison, we had over 325,000 pageviews last 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 third 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 enough time to write content. We are primarily focused on flight deals, and that takes up all my time. Do you have a list of your top ways to save on travel? Did you just go on an incredible trip? 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 Thrifty Traveler with the Facebook Like button, and Twitter share button. Even tagging a friend in the comments helps spread the word about the site.
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? Let us know!
Support the site. Keeping the lights on here costs money. 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. The best way to support us is by subscribing to Thrifty Traveler Premium. If you haven't tried Premium yet, I'd check it out, I think you'll love it.
Ask for what you need. Want to see a specific flight deal? Shoot me a message! Want to see some specific content? Let me know!
I'm 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 with suggestions, ideas, and flight tips. We do have an exciting announcement later this week, but you'll have to wait until Friday to find out!
