SO - Have You Seen It Yet?

Just doing a brag... my little blog doesn't have a lot of reasons to brag on, so this one is worth mentioning!

There it is - on your right hand side, under the heading 'Awards'... yep, got given that from HotelClub; one of their Top New Zealand Family Blogs 2013! Wahoo! 

I got contacted personally, explained that I came up as one of the top Family Blogs during their research, and asked if I could fill out a survey for them about travelling around New Zealand with children.

I hesitated, I wasn't going to - so many more blogs worthy of this attention than mine; I almost wrote back to recommend they contacted a few others... BUT then thought better of it! They'd done their research, and for some reason mine came up in their top 30 - so heck, just do it! Take the prestige, fill out the survey and share that award!

So I did - I may not have a lot of experience of travelling with children yet, our kids are small and NOT good travellers; but still, we'd done enough and I have been around enough, that I figured I could answer the questions legitimately! So I did...

And got my little blog mentioned in their article about travelling around New Zealand; and on their website and through their facebook page! My traffic has increased significantly, and I am so thrilled I answered their call... it has been a win-win situation for me! And I have 'discovered' a number of other blogs and bloggers around New Zealand; out of 15 who responded - I'd only heard of 5 of them (not including my own of course)!

Oh - and the article itself is really well written, and a really good read; so feel free to pop over and have a read for yourself! 

Then come back and let me know IF you found my one liner *grin*!!!!

Yup - found your one-liner - and I wonder why you did Tauranga :-).
Enjoy the award and the traffic.
Love and blessings

Very cool!
And of course, what's not to love about Tauranga (I am not at all biased, of course, grin!).
