Once Again, The End

Once Again, The End

One of the first things I do when I end a long trip like this one is try to put together some sort of post on my feelings on the trip while those feelings are still fresh in my head. Here’s the thing, though, after being on the road this long, and especially at the […]

Finding the Real Iceland

Finding the Real Iceland

It’s been too long since I updated my blog, but I have been doing an excellent job of updating my personal and blog Facebook pages, Twitter, Instagram (esmith7273) and Untappd. I’m going to pick up here were I left off in the last post, which was after my first two days in Iceland. The second two days in Iceland […]

State of the Blog- November 2012

State of the Blog- November 2012

I recently announced in a post yesterday (Goodbye Blogger, Hello WordPress (or The Fear of Change) ) that I am making the switch from Google’s Blogger to a self-hosted wordpress site (if you didn’t get that from the title…).

Goodbye Blogger, Hello WordPress (or The Fear of Change)

State of the Blog- September 2012

September was a big month here at On My Feet or In My Mind. I blew past last month, my previous high month for total pages views. August saw 5,207 views and September jumped to 6,529 views, a 20% increase. The best part about the jump is that the numbers were pretty consistent from day-to-day, not inflated […]

Forty Pics for My 40th Birthday

Forty Pics for My 40th Birthday

Today’s my 40th Birthday. I know it’s just a random number and I don’t really feel old. Following the lead of one of the most glamourous bloggers out there (and one of my favorites), Andi of My Beautiful Adventures, who turned 30 last week and posted 30 yearly images of herself, I searched my archives […]

State of the Blog- July 2012

State of the Blog- July 2012

In last month’s State of the Blog Post, I talked about how great a month I’d had in May (first month with over 5,000 views) and how due to an extreme drop off in new content, my June number had fallen off greatly (back under 4,000 views). This month, thanks to the performance of my […]
