Six Months of Blogging

We at Honeyguide Apps believe in being transparent, providing in detail and precise information while having fun at the same time. We being a travel app company have not restricted our contents on our blog to trekking and travel in Nepal only, rather, we have covered and published wide array of topics which include national/international news, myths and other topics which are just “too cool for a category”. Writing blogs and providing fun content for you guys has been an amazing experience for us. We thoroughly enjoyed researching and publishing blogs for you and during this six months time, from publishing our first blog to our latest blog, we believe we have given you some food for thought which we hope was fun for you guys as well.

So without further ado, let’s take a moment to relive some of our interesting blogs, talk about some factual data (from our secret arsenal: google analytics which is not much of a secret at all), and celebrate the completion of our six months of blogging. (Phewww! for today at least)

First of all, we would like to thank all of our 19,828 awesome readers from 134 different countries for all the love, support and criticism you have shown. Must admit, this was ‘THE’ only element that kept us motivated to write the blogs.

We were able to post 73 blogs that included articles, infographics and videos. Our top 5 countries on the basis of the number of readers are Nepal, USA, India, Australia and the UK. Here is  a list of some of our blog posts categorized on the basis of number of views:
