RVing Here and There is a site about RVing (and using my RV for square dancing and family history) that is still finding its way….
One early preview suggested that it be called RoVing Here and There, an idea that I liked except that people search for RV and RVing more than for Roving. It’s one of those situations where a clever title for a print publication might not work so well on the Internet.
The blog came about when Suite101 began closing down their Feature Writer blogs. Since my Suite blog was getting some good hits (500+ page views a week) I thought it was worth preserving. Since the Suite101 blog has been up for two years, I thought it might take a long time for this one to get rolling. However, there were almost 15,000 hits in the first month the blog has been live, which strikes me as being just fine.
PS: Now, if only I can attract better advertisers so my Adsense revenue continues to climb… gotta look into affiliate marketing, and get my eBooks together and available for sale… Stay tuned!
About the Author
I’ve been RVing since my wife and I converted an old VW bus into a camper in 1977 (we tucked our baby into a hammock slung up by the roof!). Since then, we’ve traveled in another van, a pop-up, a Trillium ultralight, and a hybrid (expandable) trailer; we are currently in our second fifth-wheel.
In January and February of 2011, we took our first flight as “snowbirds”, enjoying warmer temperatures and a lack of snow in Nevada, Arizona and California.
Of course, I write about a lot more than RVing. Hobbies of Family History, Square Dancing, and Calling each have pages in this blog.
