600 500 Kristi Corder

After blogging for a year, everything seems to run together. So, I thought I’d do a “Year in Review” and take a minute to look back on 2018. Check out my top 5 posts from this past year.


#5. Fun Family Car Activities to do While Traveling

Traveling can be stressful with kids. If you choose a car activity or two, it can make it much more bearable and sometimes downright enjoyable. Here are a few car trip ideas for kids. #familyfun #roadtrip #cartravelwithkids #WayBeyondTheNorm

We’re in the truck A LOT and I created this post to list our kids’ favorite activities for road trips. It was a great list post, and it’s nice to see it did well on the blog.

Look closely and you may see a picture of a certain little girl actually smiling. If you’ve followed along for any amount of time, you know she rarely ever smiles for pictures. I’m getting better at capturing those little moments when I have a chance.

#4. Travel Tennessee: Great Smoky Mountains National Park Cosby Campground

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in America. Check out our review of RVing at Cosby Campground located within the Smokies. #Tennessee #Camping #Campground #RVing #WayBeyondTheNorm

I love Tennessee! I’m so excited that this post made it in my top 5 most viewed blog posts of 2018.

We chose Cosby Campground as a place to visit in the Smoky Mountains because a good friend was getting married in Cosby. This was our first experience with boondocking for many days in a row, and we couldn’t have picked a better location.

#3. Homeopathic Medicine: An Interview with Joette Calabrese

What is homeopathy? What's the difference between classical and practical methods of homeopathy? Read the answers in this interview with homeopath Joette Calabrese. #Homeopathy #HomeopathicMedicine #HomeopathyForBeginners #WayBeyondTheNorm

As a chiropractor, my passion is teaching parents how navigate living a holistic lifestyle. I’m fascinated with all aspects of natural, healthy living and could spend hours reading and researching and teaching on the subject.

After being diagnosed with anaphylactic reactions to foods and exhausting all traditional and holistic options of treatment, I was introduced to homeopathy. I have not had an anaphylactic reaction in almost 2 years despite introducing offending foods back into my diet.

In this blog post, I interviewed my personal homeopath, Joette Calabrese, who talks about the differences between classical homeopathy and Practical Homeopathy™. It’s worth a read!

#2. Travel Disney: Our Love Affair With Fort Wilderness Campground

Heading off to Florida in your RV? You won't want to miss this amazing campground located right on Walt Disney World property. Read our review of Fort Wilderness Campground and then grab your FREE Campground Info Sheet for all of your future RVing adventures. #DisneyCamping #FloridaCamping #rving #WayBeyondTheNorm

By far MY personal favorite of the bunch, I’m happy to see that my post on Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground made the top 5. I am a Disney addict and so it seems fitting that this post would do so well.

I also feel like this post got me more organized. It was the stepping stone to my first blog template which helps me write campground reviews more quickly.

#1. RV Mistakes We Made with Our New Home on Wheels

If you’re thinking about buying an RV for yourself, maybe these out of the norm RV mistakes will help keep you from making the same mistakes when you take yours out for the first time. #RVLife #RVMistakes #WayBeyondTheNorm

Every RVer makes mistakes. It doesn’t matter if you’re a newbie or a seasoned pro, you still make mistakes. From pulling away with the jacks down to getting sprayed with human waste while emptying the black tank, all of us have stories to tell.

People must love seeing mistakes other people make because this was our top blog post of 2018. Check it out and laugh along with us!
