2020 was a memorable year for sure. For all the bad and for the good too. As the rest of the world we spent most of our time at home. The first proper lockdown was in spring. As soon as everything went back to ”new normal” at the end of May we went on a day trip. 2020 was a year of local adventures. The furthest we ventured was to the Northern Croatia when my husband and I had a romantic weekend away. I still haven’t blogged about those adventures so that’s something I need to do in January or February. International travel wasn’t an option for us for various reasons. I saw many bloggers travelling again during the summer but we decided not to do it. It just didn’t feel safe to go abroad.
I won’t write about my personal life here. You can read my Life & blog update posts if you want to know how I felt during last year. This post is just an overview of 2020 on The Red Phone Box travels. Staying at home all the time didn’t make me want to blog much or even think about travel. So, I blogged even less than in 2019. I posted only 39 posts in 2020 (for example, I published 96 posts in 2016!). I thought about quitting blogging many times. But I didn’t. Life seemed to have improved from September and that reflected on my blog too. I started to publish more posts and to post more regularly. From October my blog’s traffic increased dramatically. Actually, December was the best month in terms of the number of views/visitors in the past two years! However, I prefer interaction with my readers to just numbers on my stats and insights dashboard. I’m so thankful to all of you who have left a comment below my posts and who are still here despite my lack of travel content. I am not a professional blogger and I don’t make my living out of blogging but it’s still nice to see that my blog is being appreciated.
Let’s have a look together at some of the stats from the previous year:

The list is the same, the only exception is that instead of Corona virus in Croatia post, the fifth post by number of likes is My home (Discover Croatia).

Plans for 2021: My blog is my hobby. I’m not sure if I can call it anymore a travel blog because I wrote more about Christmas than travel last month 🙂 I mean, I still predominantly write about travel but there is other content too. Honestly, at the moment I don’t have any travel plans. For me everything is still up in the air. Who knows how vaccination will go and when we will be able to travel freely. Besides, I have things to sort out in my personal life too before I can even start to think about travel. But I have one travel wish and that is to visit my best friend in Germany some time in October. I’m sure we’ll take day trips with our kids around Croatia. But I do not dare to think of more just yet. I have some ideas for my blog but you’ll know all about it when the time comes. So please, stay tuned!
What about you? Do you have travel plans for 2021?
Thank you for following my blog! Your support means the world to me!
