By the time I discovered how to use them in January 2013, they were full-blown flourishing engines, patronized by hundreds of millions. Combined, they took my blog to another level. My views began to climb up to the highest recorded of 30,000 a month. I started to take blogging a little more seriously. It has since stabilized to 15,000 views, but my page authority is currently up to 38. My visitors come mostly from the United States, with 263,101 views, followed by France with 40,000, UK with 20,000, Germany with 16,000 and the Philippines with 15,000.
I write two kinds of posts. Our Lifestyle Adventures or OLAs are articles about our destinations and activities. Wonderings about Wanderings or WOWs are about my thoughts on our travel experiences. I have written about two hundred OLAs and fifty WOWs. Seven OLAs and three WOWs are in my Top 10 most popular posts. Number one with 22,172 views is an OLA, “Turning Wounds into Wisdom” about Georgia, USA, written on November 8, 2011. The favorite WOW post is “Traveling Light, in an RV” with 18,783 views, written on February 4, 2013.
Since we started in June 2009, we have reached forty-nine American states, eight Canadian provinces, and six Mexican states in four cross-continent runs. We have also traveled to countries outside of North America. We have been to three countries in Asia, one in the Caribbean and nine in Europe. We are going to cover more of Europe this year and complete the USA by spending two weeks in Hawaii.
The title of my blog is still “Generation Z. Cruising in an RV.” Although we are technically traveling to places no longer in an RV, we still have not moved to a sticks and bricks home. Our base, where our RV is parked year-round starting 2015, is in Viewpoint RV and Golf Resort in Mesa, Arizona. From there we travel the world and while there, we enjoy the benefits of an RV Resort.
