Exciting News on the Blog & Travel Front

In my birthday post last year, one of my goals for the year was to move this blog from Blogger, where I currently host it, over to WordPress. I don’t hate Blogger- when I started this blog I didn’t want to pay to host it anywhere because I didn’t know if I’d stay interested in […]

State of the Blog- May & June 2012

State of the Blog- May & June 2012

Ohhh, my poor neglected blog. One of the high points of the trip (both physically & emotionally)- In front of Mount Tasman, West Coast Due to a streak of bad luck at work (neither caused or made worse by the month in New Zealand), exhaustion and other commitments, I haven’t been able to post much on […]

State of the Blog- April 2012

State of the Blog- April 2012

I expected April’s numbers to fall way off from March’s record numbers, especially with preparation for my upcoming New Zealand trip demanding more of the free time I usually dedicate to working on new content for this blog. The numbers did go down, but only slightly, from 4,981 in March to 4,854 in April (and April had […]

State of the Blog- March 2012

State of the Blog- March 2012

Janeen & I on our way to the MSU-OSU game (on our way– see, we are still smiling)  After dipping in December due to work commitments, it has been all up sine then, and March was no exception. After being thrilled with the 4,056 views in February, I almost got to 5,000 views this month, coming up just […]

State of the Blog- February 2012

State of the Blog- February 2012

When I finally started getting serious about blogging around April of last year, I kept seeing the phrase “Content is King” repeated over and over again in posts from successful bloggers I admired. For me, this has never been more true over this last month. I went into January with the intention of writing more […]

State of the Blog- January 2012

State of the Blog- January 2012

After not posting a lot of content in December and watching my numbers plummet due to that, On My Feet or In My Mind bounced back well in January. I had 190 views on January 1st, a great way to start out the new month, helped by four 2011 year end posts written in the […]

Between Trips (& Slowly Going Crazy)

Between Trips (& Slowly Going Crazy)

This is such an odd state I’m in right now. Ever since I got seriously bitten by the travel bug as an adult in 1996, I’ve lived between trips. That is, one one trip is finished, I have always had an idea (or ideas) where the next trip is going to be. There is a […]

Best of Travel 2011

Best of Travel 2011

As I wrote in my personal review of 2011, this was my lightest travel year since 2000. I’d been saving money for a trip to New Zealand this year (that now, unfortunately, seems unlikely to happen) so I made the sacrifice of going on only one two week trip and one five day trip. Lucky […]

State of the Blog- December & Year One-2011

State of the Blog- December & Year One-2011

Today marks my one year blog-iverasry. I started On My Feet or In My Mind with no real idea of how it would evolve, other than to be a place to post a pictures a day, an occasional article, and pictures and posts from my trips. As far as those goals go, I kept to […]

State of the Blog- November

State of the Blog- November

Janeen & I after the Turkey Trot (5K) in Detroit on Thanksgiving I can’t complain about the progress of the blog in November. I was down slightly from October in page views (3,488 in October, 3,210 in November) but there was one less day and I didn’t post as many articles (8 articles & 3 […]
