Yes, it is my BLOG-ANNIVERSARY…if that word exists. One year of Blogging and what better way to reward ThrillingTravel with a makeover.

It has been crazy the last few days –  with me moving from Blogspot to my own space  – over 72 posts, reformatting them, reconstructing the site and rebuilding a look – and the latter part has been the craziest for I am no techie. But doing it all by myself is indeed something I am proud of.  My site was down for 3 days but well Ta Dah! Here you have it!

ThrillingTravel in its new Avataar! – with definitely a better back-end and a promise from me to get you all traveling more each day.

I recall a year back, me in my old organization, getting bored with my routine, wondering where I could travel next. With no leaves in sight, I decided to virtual travel through words on my own blog and wrote my first post. I ignored my blog for the next 2 weeks and then came back to write more. Surprisingly, there were a few comments on the first post and that was it! That was all I needed to start off and bring my travel alive.

As I look back, I realise that ThrillingTravel indeed has traveled a long way. From being nowhere, today my blog’s Alexa rank is at 186,147 globally today and in India – 14,965I have also, been included in the top 1000 travel blogs as per Rise. Right now, looking back, it feels like a dream.

A few thanks are in order – first of course, to my parents – for everything that I am today.

Next to my husband and daughter for the tremendous patience and encouragement that they have given me. For even staying hungry while I sorted out my blog 😛

My sibling, cousins, friends – who were my earliest readers – patiently entertaining me my new blog alerts and prompts, their constructive feedback and more importantly, for spreading the love.

A special thanks to all my fellow bloggers – who have selflessly taught me so many things.

And last but not the least – to YOU  – my dear readers and subscribers.


Thank you for all your love and blessings. Do continue to share your love and leave a comment for me below.
