Tripbase started a great project a few months back. Or, that is at least when we were nominated by 1000 fights to join in. Maybe it’s been around for longer? None the less, it’s about time we finally took part!
The project is meant to connect travel bloggers together and give them a chance to show off some of the amazing content from their sites by sharing 7 links.
Scott and I have been running Dream a Little Dream since April 2008! That’s 7 years!! We’ve been around off and on for the last year. But still, choosing 7 links in the following catogories have been quite a challenge. We have tons of posts from a long time ago we love and didn’t get much exposure due to being a new site in the travel world. On the flip side however, all of our more recent posts are just at such a higher calibre due to everything we’ve learned in these past 3 years to create better content and get more exposure.
Anyways, after much hard thought here is what we came up with:
OUR MOST BEAUTIFUL POST:
Christmas ornaments from our RTW trip
We’ve seen some beautiful things across the world but nothing quite compares to grouping all those beautiful memories together on our Christmas Tree to ensure they last a lifetime!
OUR MOST POPULAR POST:
Banksy vs the Bristol museum
If we look at our site stats this one post gets the most hits day in and day out. This paticular exhibit ended a long time ago but still Banksy continues to pull in the numbers for us. It really is quite remarkable how popular street art is.
OUR MOST CONTROVERSIAL POST(s):
1. Cairo from a women’s perspective 3. Netherlands soft drug policy – is it working? 4. Contemporary Museum in Vienna: Mak
2. The Valve Sound System Show Down – Epic Fail
3. Netherlands soft drug policy – is it working?
4. Contemporary Museum in Vienna: Mak
Okay, I cheated and listed 4. What are you going to do about it? The reason I listed 4 as we don’t really have any posts that have caused any heated discussions or debates. It was really hard to figure out exactly what of our topics is controversial to people. Thus, I’ve chosen 4 topics which I think can lead to a variety of opinions if people actually commented or is a touchy subject.
OUR MOST HELPFUL POST:
How to care for a second degree muffler burn in Thailand
Step by step instructions on how to care for one of the most popular injuries that can happen on the tropical islands of Thailand.
A POST WITH SUCESS THAT HAS SURPRISED US:
AK-47’s and naughty squirrels
Just a simple post about our time in Riga, Latvia that continues to soar high in our site stats. Maybe it’s the title that is causing all the attention. Guns and naughty things. Yup. That has to be it!
A POST THAT DIDN’T GET THE ATTENTION IT DESERVED:
Scott the hero
An epic and heroic tale of how Scott saved the day after crashing our scooter and causing me to get a second degree muffler burn. Complete with crash video!! How can this not be popular??
THE POST WE ARE MOST PROUD OF:
Our Canadian Thanksgiving experience in Germany
We are proud of that entire day that ended with the great success of that amazing meal!! May not be as interesting to others but to us this was a very special moment during our travels. In the top 5 for sure.
Okay, we hope you got to read something from our site you might of missed before. Thanks for reading!
