This past week, the travel blogosphere was abuzz with all kinds of stats from 2017. Bloggers wrote about miles traveled, best/worst flights and elite statuses renewed. Grant kept it simple and took a look at his popular posts of the previous year. The jet lag I’m working through does present me with some quiet early morning hours, so why not pull up my most popular posts of the year, since I do have a year’s worth of posts to consider! There were some surprises. I’ve been enjoying Vancouver since their World’s Fair in 1986. That’s a long time to have a love affair! I see from my posts that a lot of other people want to enjoy Vancouver as well. It’s also good to see that readers are interested in a variety of airline and lounge information. You never know what will be popular, though from both my list and Grant’s list, I’d say TWG readers are a practical, strategic bunch who expect insights and information they can put to good use!

Speaking of what TWG readers might be interested in, I’m thinking about writing about how TWG makes money. It dawned on me after I wrote my post about my first year at TWG, that the number one question people ask me when they find out I write about travel is, “Do you actually make money doing that?” If this is something you’d like to know, let me know in the comments section. Thanks, everyone!
