TravelingMamas.com Milestone: First Year
January is the time when people look back at the past year and make resolutions for the year ahead. This day last year, we loaded our first post on a WordPress.com travel blog. We started TravelingMamas.com with a few dollars and a little bit of common sense (we trademarked the name). Along the way – 438 blog posts later – we’ve grown into what you see today.
Each of us feels blessed to have TravelingMamas.com as a fun and rewarding outlet. We four have full editorial control of what content we feature, and our goal has always been to help mothers and travel researchers find useful and practical information to plan how to spend their hard-earned money.
Over the last week, we all dug through our old photos, emailing to each other and laughing at how goofy we all look (may perms never come back in style). We recalled our times together on trips, and now we are planning our next getaway so we can all bond in person! Hawaii last May was truly magical.
Here’s a little reflection of our first year that gives a brief background on how we came to this moment. Thanks for sticking around through our first year; we really appreciate the support. We absolutely love hearing from readers, and making connections with other travel bloggers and travel-industry folks means the world to us! We look forward to seeing what 2009 will bring for the Traveling Mamas. Onward and upward!

And Mamas – I MISS YOU! Thanks for making 2008 a rocking year of travel blogging. Here’s to 2009 and the Year of the Traveling Mamas. I hope ALL mamas out there start planning their travels now, both with their families and their mama friends.
Like the music? The song featured is Everything I Need by Chris Michols. His entire album can be downloaded for free at ChrisMichols.com.
And special thanks to Terry Shibao of Digital Imaging Plus, who took the great photos of us at the Westin Maui.

I love that you used so many pictures from our photo shoot at the Westin Maui. Love, love the music. I’m so downloading that song.

Aww, Cajun, you’ve done such a beautiful job with this post. This past year has been so much fun, and 2009 will be even better.

Well happy anniversary to the Mighty Amazing Traveling Mamas. May you have many more amazing and fantabulous years together.
I think I’d like to crash your next Mama trip because you all look like you are having too much fun! Tipsy twittering at Blog World; come on!
You ladies are crazy and that’s why I love you.
Buon Viaggio, Mama Mias! Congratulations on your first year!

Learned about your website at a travel writer’s reception in Denver tonight. I’ve spent the rest of the evening browsing Travelingmamas.com. Congrats on your one-year anniversary. I’m a traveling grandma but still enjoyed your information and viewpoints. I recently started a travel blog and learn more each day.
My husband and I had the pleasure of sharing a press trip in Yellowstone with CajunMama a few years ago. It’s great to see one of the places she’s directing her boundless energies. Best wishes for your second year.
i am a new fan but a fan nonetheless! Happy Anniversary!
