Your enthusiasm and support makes editing and publishing this scrappy online magazine a joy.

You encourage us with your comments and enlighten us with your contributions. As of yesterday, you answered our challenge and have lifted Brave New Traveler up over the magic mark of ONE THOUSAND RSS subscribers. Your enthusiasm and support makes editing and publishing this scrappy online magazine a joy.

This is just the beginning. We’ve got big plans. A few months ago Ian was doing a shot of vodka at 7 am to celebrate 100 subscribers. The video for the 1,000 mark ups the ante to include beer, whiskey, horrible singing and my (blacked out) jiggly bits.

10,000 can’t be far off. (Imagine what we’ll come up with for that celebratory video).

Keep spreading the word, Brave New Travelers! Let’s not stop here. We’re counting on you to tell your friends about this wicked cool little independent travel magazine that publishes such provocative, timely and funny articles.

Still not sure what RSS even means? Read this.

So, wherever you are in this tragic, lovely, fascinating world – keep in touch. Keep reading. Keep adding your voice to the community.

We’re building something beautiful, and it’s good to have you along for the ride.

Thanks to the following bloggers for posting about our RSS push

And I’m positive there were a couple more that did as well. If we missed you, send us an email and we’ll add you to this list.
