Today I had my first taste of success: it was not huge, but it was enough for inspiration. Having posted an article about things to do it St Anton during winter, it got shared. Again and again. Then it got shared by visit Tirol, a tourism site with 15000 members. So far I have 500 likes and it feels good!
It was a roller coaster of a day, and one that made me think that there was a possibility I am actually going to pull off my dream of being a paid travel writer.
