It is that time of year, when people look back and remember what was and look forward, planning what will be. It is also a time of giving and loving and sharing, of world peace and gratitude.
We are grateful for the opportunity we have had to share our story and to meet a lot of great people, including other travelers, writers, and bloggers. We are also grateful for the expanding presence Go Curry Cracker is having on the web
It has been a very big couple of months for us here at Go Curry Cracker with records set for number of page views, number of Facebook and Twitter likes and follows, and number of comments.
We’ve been featured and interviewed by some great reporters and bloggers, and had the honor of writing a couple guest posts for some of our favorite sites.
For the Mandarin speakers out there, Winnie’s post on how we retired early and now travel the world went mini-viral, getting over 200,000 views in just 3 days, which has led to her article being shared on a few big time sites with more to come.
Our post about how we plan to Never Pay Taxes Again was shared, liked, cross-linked, and shared again, setting a record for views and comments.
Thank you everybody for a great 2013. Thank you for reading, for sharing, for commenting, and caring.
All the best in 2014
Jeremy & Winnie, Go Curry Cracker!
