It’s our 8 Year Blogaversary
Goodness, how time flies. It’s almost impossible for me to think that it was 8 years ago today I started Roxy the Traveling Dog.
At the time, we weren’t full time RVers yet, and Torrey hadn’t joined the family. I had zero idea what a blog was, and very little idea of what I was actually doing.
February 3rd, Torrey joined the family and that added even more fun to the blog, and more things to write about.
Not the best video, but this is puppy Torrey and Roxy running in the snow. We use to go walking behind the house, all times of the year.
The blog at first was definitely more dog focused, and I met some of the most wonderful people through the pet blogging community. Some I have had the chance to meet in person, others are my invisible friends. But I’m so glad to have them around.
As we started full time RVing in June of 2012, Roxy the Traveling Dog really was about traveling dogs. It’s always been fun to talk about new places, and exploring with the dogs.
In May of 2014 I rebranded to Tales from the Back Road. I wanted to talk more about our art, and our travels in general. I’ve always felt that was a good move, as I have been able to expand not only my audience, but gained the freedom to blog about more stuff.
Like every other blogger out there, I wanted to make money blogging, but realized that was never going to happen. So, several years ago I quit worrying about that, and have just blogged for fun and to keep a record of our travels. It’s kinda nice really because I can always go back on the blog, and see where we have been, and when.
Lately, I will write a blog post if I have something cool to share with you guys, or to just talk about where we are at the moment. Photography has become more my focus the last few years, but this blog will always be a place to share not only that, but our stories and adventures.
I couldn’t have done any of it the past 8 years if it wasn’t for you guys, my readers. I have learned from you, enjoyed your feedback, and loved the times I have actually met some of you in person. So thanks so much for being here, and onward to year 9.
