19:00 27/1/2013 Yey! we just turn one year old of blogging. Truth to be told, still we don’t know what we’re doing. Hahaha. Before we blew that invisible cake and wear that party hat. Let us shared how BFT (boundfortwo) started.
But why Boundfortwo? Nah! it’s not so obvious isn’t it? It takes two to tango, pair to become love birds and couple for boundfortwo. Everywhere we go, will be bound for two. It’s a story of us, travel and everything in between.
It was on the 22nd of January of last year when we both decided to create a blog. The sole purpose of creating one was to share our experience to our friends and love ones.
boundfortwo.blogspot.com was born and became our baby. We don’t have any experience in writing or blogging per se. We know how to write in our own way and still learning the discipline. If you find errors somewhere in this blog that you may find offensive if verb and subject doesn’t agree or tenses mixed up, our sincerest apology.
Aside from writing, we don’t have any relative idea about layout and web design, the instant template of blogger was our savior. It was very lame and more bluer than blue that of Michael Johnson’s song.
We heard that first 3 months were crucial in blogging, it’s a make or break. But we had overcome all through it. We even purchased our own domain boundfortwo.com last May through GoDaddy and had kept Blogger as our platform. Migrating from blogspot to owned domain was pain in the @$$. We lost our patience and on the brink to give up blogging (insert drama __ here) after the 72 hours failure expected up time. After some tweaks and help from blogger forums we manage to make it live. Whoa!
To be part of the awesome group of seasoned travel bloggers, PTB (Pinoy Travel Bloggers) was one of things we haven’t expect. Wanna know? getting an approval was not an easy breezy like checking in your luggage in an airline counter. Every bloggers who wish to join will be scrutinize before the admins will give a nod. If not with endorsement from one of the seasoned travel blogger we’ll not able to join PTB. You know who you are, Thanks, Wink!
After so many mix and match trying to pimp our blog. We end up to a predominant color in the blogosphere, white and gray. We also come up a new header that will brand our blog and watermark logo for our photos. Tadaah! Sky and Summer, visually!
After 69 published post and a year of blogging, we’re still a newbie and will not stop learning. Crossing both fingers and toes, hope we can still blog till infinity.
We knew we owed a lot to our readers (if there’s any) lol.

Congrats and hope you have more years of blogging! It's a lot of work, right, but it's so much fun 🙂
Happy anniversary! 🙂
Thanks James! <3
Happy blogversary! I wasn't really serious about blogging during the first few months and my writing reflected it. It was constructed simply to be a memory bank. So chillax and enjoy sharing your adventures 🙂 All the best.
True, so that's why we didn't edit our first few post to know how lame we are as starters. lol. Thank you Gay and oh Happy Aussie Day to you guys.
Happy Anniversary! Wishing more blogging years for the 2 of you 🙂
Thanks Drew for continuing reading our blog. 🙂
