Celebration Confetti

Hello everybody!
We’re in the terrible twos!

We launched Murlo.ca on October 6, 2020 and it has been a great hobby and learning experience!

During the summer of 2022, we shut down to give our site a fresh new look and feel by adding extra bells & whistles to enhance our pages and posts for a better visitor experience. We like to thank our friends & followers who provided valuable feedback during this time! You know who you are.

It’s been a great adventure culminating into a very successful two years. We reached over 5,000 views earlier this summer and over 1000 visitors since we began.

Our Growing Success
We are not reinventing the wheel yet we have resonated with people around the world by focusing primarily on recipes, travel and creative projects with the beginner in mind.

Our numbers are very small compared to many websites but we’re very happy with our steady growth and stable viewership translating into nearly 1,600 subscribers & followers including five magazines.  Thank you!

Our Highlights This Year;
1. Reached over 5,000 views
