BLOGVERSARY…Telling it all!

One year ago I hit PUBLISH! That small step was the birth of budgetingmytrip, my very own travel blog. One year later and all I can say is happy blogversary!. It is fact that very few blogs survive their first year, but here we are growing and certainly getting better.  So, today’s post will be a “Tell it All”.

As my loyal readers, I am sure you may have wondered why I started blogging about my travels, what the past one year has been like and most importantly what I plan for you all in the coming year. This special blogversary post is aimed at addressing all these. However, before we commence, I can confidently say, the biggest impact I have felt as a travel blogger is that now, I travel with a purpose… 

A walk down memory lane

I remember sitting down and sharing travel insights & tips with my sister and all she said was ‘Sarah you are too passionate about travel, it’s high time you share this with the world’. With absolutely no idea about blogging or running a website, that same night thanks to her, I discovered WordPress and published my first post, and the rest they say is history!

The Journey So Far

What a journey…from visa struggles to airport dramas, sleepless nights, continuous research and undiluted adventures. It truly has been very exciting but also exhausting. I have a full-time job, but also have to travel, research and create useful content every week. So with no sugar coating I will say it’s been quiet a hassle. Regardless just from inception of the blog till date I’ve been able to explore 3 continents, more than 20 countries and about 32 cities. Feel free to entertain your eyes with amazing photos on my  Instagram

Lesson(s) Learned 

Oh well major lesson; Holding a green passport as a travel blogger is not a joke! haha…OK to be honest the biggest lesson has been accepting the fact that when you truly start pursuing your dreams, the people you expect to support you might not believe or support your dreams… But this should not change your love for them!


What would this page be without amazing readers like you? Honestly, with a high rise in travel blogs along with unlimited online resources available, readers have more than enough options. But you all still choose to click on my posts, read and support me. Therefore, I would like to express my profound gratitude. THANK YOU to every subscriber, reader, friend, family and FON member(Friends of Nigeria). Your constant support is a source of motivation to book my next flight and travel thousands of miles because I owe you the best content.

To my amazing team and guest writers…words are not enough to show my appreciation. I’m greatly indebted to Yusuf Sarah and Obinna Nwachuya for their continued and unquestionable support.
