2012 has been a great year for Ashley and I as well as a great year for our hiking blog. Readership during 2012 grew even more than the previous years as Southern California residents continue to find the hiking resources we offer for free. As usual, this year we made several changes to the structure of the blog by streamlining the search process for hikes on the site as well as a couple of other things. We had the opportunity to do several guest posts in 2012 as well as several product giveaways. This year has been a great year for hiking new trails as we have added 27 new hiking trails to our blog. We now have over 120 different hiking trails (Specifically 66 trails in the Orange County Area, 22 in the greater Southern California Area, and 33 outside of the greater Southern California Area) that are detailed on Brian and Ashley's Hiking Blog. The number of fans who like our Facebook page has steadily continued to grow, with now over 540 likes and we now have over 90 twitter followers.
Ashley and I always enjoy all the comments/feedback that we get from our readers about the hikes that they have done. Your comments, stories, and feedback continue to make this blog better and is always welcome! Ashley and I want to say a special thanks to ALL our readers and we hope that 2013 is a great hiking year for you and that you have a Happy New Year! Coming up very soon Ashley and I will celebrate our one year anniversary on January 7, 2013. So in that theme we have posted some pictures from our hikes in Hawaii. Our goal for the next year is to continue hiking new and exciting trails as well as re-visit some of our favorite hiking locations. Ashley and I want to wish you and your family a happy and prosperous 2013! Happy Trails.
