April 10th, 2016 is the day I published my first post on this blog. I was extremely excited to start writing and sharing my story with you guys. It has been a very fun and eventful year since the blog began. In the past year we’ve lived in Middleboro, MA, Mansfield, MA, Fayetteville, NC, Newport, NC, and, as of 5 days ago, we are now living in Harpers Ferry, WV. We’ve taken weekend trips all over the east coast from Bar Harbor, Maine all the way down to Savannah, GA. We also took an amazing free vacation to Jamaica back in September.
Financially, I have charted my progress toward financial independence with monthly updates. The stock market has jumped significantly since I first started this blog which has been very helpful for my net worth. Stock market gains combined with high paying travel assignments, working overtime when possible, credit card sign up bonuses, and bank account sign up bonuses allowed me to increase my overall net worth by over $90,000 since this time last year!
Now let’s look at some blog statistics since inception.

I have really enjoyed writing on this blog for the past year. I have had hundreds of people reach out to me in comments, Facebook messages, and emails. Most of which were interested in attempting travel physical therapy but I have also gotten questions about finance and student loans which I love to talk about as well. I appreciate each and every one of you that have read my posts this past year and I’d like to give special thanks to those that have taken the extra step to communicate with me individually. I’m looking forward to next year and hope to continue producing helpful and entertaining content for you guys. If there is anything in particular you would like me to write about, leave a comment below and I’ll do what I can!
