Because Of  You!

You. Make.  Me.  Want.  To.  Blog.

8 days ago I started publicizing Million Mile Secrets online.

And you came over to check it out!

2 days later, I was asked if I was interested in sharing the same web address with some of the best bloggers in the business (Who me?  Did they have the correct email address?!)

You left lots of comments on my posts:

You sent me emails telling me that my posts were well crafted!

Thank you for supporting my first week blogging to the ENTIRE world (Ok, I’ll admit to being just a wee bit apprehensive!)

Thank you, my sweet dear Emily, for supporting and encouraging my long nights, early mornings, and busy weekends as I immersed myself with blogging.  We’ve been together for 4.5 years and I still find new ways to love you, even more, each day!

Thank you Gary, from View From The Wing, for linking to my post on the 2-Browser trick in your weekly wrap-up, “The Best Insights from the Other Travel Blogs in the Past Several Days (Read It All Here in One Place, They Blog So I Don’t Have To).”

Thank you to the many Mile & Point bloggers who replied to my emails about silly technical details and my inane questions about their blogging experiences.

Thank you to a very venerable individual in the Mile and Point collecting community for sending me an encouraging email (I needed it!)

Thank you Mary Alice, foosion, Derek, Ed, Rob, Larry, Karen, Jade, M, Biggles209, Laura, UT1e0b, mm, Jim, stephen, Phil, AKT, Harold, and Explore  for commenting and sharing your experiences with others on the blog.  Your comments make this blog stronger!

Thank you to the many readers who emailed me, including those of you who, ahem, questioned my intelligence and judgement for publishing the Priority Club trick.

Thank you to the readers who emailed their friends about Million Mile Secrets so that they, too, could have Big Travel with Small Money.

Thank you to the 1,000+ readers who visited this blog yesterday!  How did you find me in only 8 days?!

Thank you to the 300 readers who have signed up to receive free blog posts via email or in a RSS reader!  You will never miss out on another mile or point tip.

YOU are all the reason why I will NOT stop blogging.

To show my thanks, in the next few weeks (I’m still working out the details), you will be able to win Loss Prevention luggage tags worth $24.95 and Loss  Prevention tags for your laptop or phone worth $19.95 just for leaving comments on Million Mile Secrets!

There may even be a giveaway for a FREE air ticket at the 25,000 mile award redemption level to anywhere in the US or Canada on either American Airlines, Delta, United Airlines, or US Airways!  I’m still working out the details, so stay tuned to Million Mile Secrets.

And of course, I’ll be posting brand new articles on how you can have Big Travel for Small Money.

You’ll literally go places just by reading Million Mile Secrets!

I couldn’t have had such a successful first week without YOU.  Thanks again for your support!  Reading your comments and emails is what makes blogging worthwhile to me!

Wow 1,000 readers in a week?! Would you mind sharing the statistics now after coming up on 2 years?

I understand if you do not want to share. Thanks so much for everything you do!

Million Mile Secrets

@Gkrebs23 - Those were page views - not necessarily unique readers. The email and RSS list has ~7.5K subscribers.

Thanks for not stopping to blog

I am new to this and trying to learn

Another new daily read...thanks

Million Mile Secrets

@David - Glad you like it!

Hi there Daraius! My fiancé and I are 20-something teachers about to embark on a life-changing journey. In August we will be moving to Myanmar (Burma) to begin our careers as international teachers. We hope to travel the world engaged in something close to our hearts. That being said, we won't have access to the same resources we might in the US.

We're going to be looking to you (and others!) to help us! Many of the promotions (credit cards, etc) are for US residents. Are there opportunities for Americans living abroad already?

Thanks very much for your dedication to sharing what you've learned - it's already been a great gift. If you're ever in Myanmar (or nearby Thailand), please do let us know!

Postally yours,

Ray (& Shuruq)

Million Mile Secrets

@Ray Congratulations on your journey to Myanmar and all the best as you live your dream (and change the world)!

I don't know of many credit card offers which are available to non-US residents. However, you can always sign-up for credit card offers by listing your parent's address in the application and not mentioning that you live overseas. This will require a little co-ordination, and you may even have to pay foreign exchange fees on the amount needed to meet the minimum spend, but that might be a way to keep you in the miles and points.

Safe travels!


ditto on what people above are saying. Your posts are excellent reads. Thanks for the information!
