2012 is really a huge blessing for me and for Penfires, Thank You God!

Thank YOU TOO  for supporting this blog.   Your visits, the comments you leave, the time you spent browsing through this blog’s articles and pages are really appreciated! It fuels my drive to visit more of our islands, more of our best spots, more of our best food offerings so I can share them with you and everyone who wants to know more about the country, yet have no time yet to explore on your own. Or maybe you just want to read another’s perspective on beautiful places in the Philippines and traveling experiences. Whatever the reason that you ended up on Penfires, Thank You for Staying. Thank You for Reading. Thank you for letting Penfires be part of your day. Hahah speech ba to? Hahaha pasensya na masaya lang haha.  :mrgreen:

 Penfires Hit a Milestone! 500 Thousand Page Views All Time!

What’s more amazing,  for me at least haha, is that it’s only this year 2012 that web traffic and page views really soared, so it means the coming years and months is a pretty exciting time for this blog. Hehe. Positivism always win!

Penfires has also been consistent making it to the Top 30 among Travel and Leisure Blogs listed in Top Blogs PH in the last few months. Hurray! Crossing fingers it will not slide down fast heheh.
