The Honeymoon Project Turns One

The Honeymoon Project turns one

It’s hard to believe, but today marks a year since I pressed published on my first ever post on The Honeymoon Projectfive tips for choosing your honeymoon. I’m the first to admit that it’s been a bit of a learning curve: gradually getting my head around html, SEO and all the associated things that come with setting up a website; fitting writing around a full-time job (while trying to maintain some kind of social life…); finding out what works and what doesn’t; and building up a reputation. But overall, it’s been a great year, and I have to admit that I’m rather chuffed that I’m still running the site a year on, still full of ideas for posts, and that I’ve seen it continue to grow and grow.

Over the last year, I’ve seen the site go from just a couple of visitors a day (and, let’s face it, most of them were, erm, me) to hundreds of visitors a day (and hopefully this will only continue to increase); I’ve been on BBC radio twice to talk about honeymoons; I’ve been invited to review a number of wonderful places to stay; and, most importantly, I’ve met a lot of fantastic fellow bloggers, whose support I’m really grateful for.

So where now for The Honeymoon Project? I’ve got lots of ideas up my sleeves, so it’s really just a case of finding the time to implement them! I want to continue building this up as the best unbiased resource for honeymoon information and inspiration, publishing a range of posts that will hopefully be of use to engaged couples (or even just people looking for a great trip). Time, and a lot of work, is what’s in store – but thankfully I find that exciting and challenging, and I can’t wait to get stuck into my second year of The Honeymoon Project.

But I have to admit, I can’t do this alone. I need you to help me along. So, if you’re engaged and need some honeymoon advice, write to me, and I’d be delighted to see what I can suggest. If you’ve been on honeymoon, send me your write up and a few photos and I can share your experiences with people still planning their own trips. If you fall into neither of these categories, then please tell your friends about the site – the more people that hear about it the better. And lastly, come over to The Honeymoon Project’s Facebook page and “like” the site – I promise not to bombard you with constant status updates – and, if you’re on Twitter, follow me on there for the latest honeymoon news and post updates.

Thank you all for your continued support during the last year, I appreciate it more than I could possibly express.
