2014 has been a great year for Brian & Ashley's Hiking Blog and year in transition for us personally. Readership during 2014 continued to grow and we had the opportunity to do a couple of product reviews, guest posts as well as several product giveaways. This year has been a good year for hiking new trails as we have added 11 new hiking trails to our blog as well as updates on multiple other trails that we hiked this year. We have over 140 different hiking trails (Specifically 68 trails in the Orange County Area, 32 in the greater Southern California Area, and 45 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 875 likes and we now have over 168 twitter followers.
Professionally, we would consider 2014 a year of transition, I changed law firms in 2014 and am now working in downtown Los Angeles. Ashley has continued to do amazing as a teacher at Fallbrook Union High School. But regardless of our full time jobs, this year we got the chance to get out and enjoy the outdoors. This year we got the opportunity to see lots of wildlife and got some great pictures of bobcats, wild turkey, and deer in Southern California. We visited the Grand Canyon, the Salton Sea, and did many different hikes in Orange County and the greater Southern California Area.
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 2015 is a great hiking year for you and that you have a Happy New Year! Our goal for the next year is to continue hiking new and exciting trails as well as re-visit many of our favorite hiking locations. Ashley and I want to wish you and your family a happy and prosperous 2015! Happy Trails.
