Yesterday, 25th of July, No Place Like Here completed one month online.
You may think “whatever.. 1 month?.. 1 month is nothing,” but when the kid is still a baby we want to celebrate each month, especially the first one (which deserves a post!).
Yes, the first post is from the 10th of June, but the site was still being developed at that time and the actual date of birth was 25th of June, when we put it online and told all our friends to come visit us!
We’re surprised how well the site has been doing during this first month. The truth is that we weren’t expecting that anyone apart from family and close friends wanted to read what we write here.
It ended up happening exactly the opposite, we met a lot of nice new people through the site, we’ve been receiving visits from the most diverse locations in the globe (31 countries so far, all continents), we exchanged links with other travellers-writers, and at the end of the day who least visit us are our friends and families… it is common to have a friend asking about something that we have just posted here!
We are so happy to know that the majority is reading our posts in English, despite the primary language is still Portuguese, since this is our first language (and that I love.. just because Portuguese is beautiful!).
It is also nice to see people from various different locations in Brazil visiting us (38 cities so far) and know that Brazilians are interested in travelling too.
There are still many stories to come, and if you want to continue following us, you may want to subscribe to our RSS.
If you do not know what RSS is, watch this video made by Lee and Sachi LeFever. I wouldn’t be able to explain it better than this.
And since you are visiting us here, leave us a comment, we love meeting new people and receiving comments! Even if you’re not new. 😀
P.S.: counting down: 43 days left.
