On the occasion of the 50th post, I will be sharing my 10 best and worst things about Travel Blogging.
The journey from 1st post to the 49th post was very educating and impressive on my behalf. Although when I was writing my first post, I hadn’t thought that I will be sharing my experience till the 50th post one day.
Very proud that I had made this Solo Travel Blog reach here and lots more work needs to be done.
first thing first,
You must be thinking that how I came up with the name “Crossroadadventure”?
How Crossroadadventure Name was Born
My very first adventurous trip to Bir Billing in Himachal kicked me to be very honest.
It made me think every day; is there a way where I can share my experience or can I get this Kick all the life? I got to know about starting a blog/website.
One day while thinking, what name should I give to my blog which will sound appealing and suit my niche too. I told to myself “This is a new path I am choosing right now and something related to two ways where one will lead to normal life and others will lead to Kick life”. That’s how “Crossroadadventure Name” was born.
It turned 16 months old (1.4 years old) a few days back.
Have you seen a baby grow?
Yeah right – Crawl, Walk, Run, and ….
My blog is currently between the crawling and walking stages.
i.e. this was little behind the scenes of how the “Crossroadadventure” name was born.
Let’s dive deep into the main topic.
