Income and Traffic Report for July 2016 – $1331

My oh my it’s been almost 6 months since I’ve been able to finally chain myself to a desk and crank out new income and traffic reports.  Travel Blog Breakthrough has totally been put on the back burner and I’m so sorry!  Sadly, time has been pretty limited through most of 2016 and when push came to shove, I had to focus more on the opportunities that came through to Going Awesome Places.  The most important thing is that I’m BACK!  While I could cop out and just...

The Do’s and Don’ts of Press Trips

One of the first things that happened to me as a travel blogger that gave me feedback that I was heading in the right direction was when I was invited to my first press trip.  This was in large part thanks to a referral from another travel blogger (again…the power of networking!) and I was excited as heck.  Thing was, I didn’t really know what to expect or how to prepare.  I ended up having to learn and improvise on the fly but you don’t have to.
