An update on our book, blog, and social media accounts
It has been 1 year since Kevin decided to make a career change.
He always dreamed of being a writer.
He also imagined becoming a travel influencer as part of building a business as a travel agent and tour operator. Tina is a home-based travel agent and, once travel restrictions are lifted and it is safe to travel, we hope to offer group tours for older travellers with the types of attractions and activities and pace that they want and need.
We are writing a book about the best places to retire or snowbird and building a social media presence for the brand “Retirestyle Travel”.
We are very proud of our Retirestyle Travel blog, which launched on a different platform just over 1 year ago.
We also started our YouTube channel around 1 year ago.
Over time, we created accounts on most of the major social media platforms to gain an audience and promote our blog posts.
The tentative title of the book is “RETIRESTYLE – Retire Abroad & Ride Off Into The Sunset.”
This book will be about the best places for older travellers to spend time; either as snowbirds or retiring abroad.
It will focus on destinations in Canada, USA, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean because they are most convenient for Canadians like us.
The book is around 75% done.
We need more first-person, practical information about each retirement/snowbird destination through interviews with people that spend a lot of time there or by visiting some of the destinations ourselves.
Thus, we do not have a publisher or release date yet.
Thank you for visiting and reading our blog called “Retirestyle Travel”.
On January 1, 2021, we migrated our blog from Blogger to a new platform. Our blog is now hosted by my sister’s company, Quiring Minds Technology Services. We use WordPress as our blog editor.
We think the blog design and navigation is much better now. We hope you like it.
In 1 year, the 74 posts on our blog have a combined total of over 41,000 page views. Our old blog website (on Google Blogger) received 28,000 page views in 9 months and our new blog has over 13,000 page views in 3 months.
We seem to have become a bit of an authority on Las Vegas, Nevada. We published 19 articles about things to do in Las Vegas, which seem to get the majority of our page views. We love Vegas and did a lot of research for a cancelled trip that we had planned in the summer of 2020.
