There are a ton of podcast out there and when Jason asked to interview me for his own show, I was delighted.  The tables are turned this time around and I thought I’d give you some insight on some very relevant information about travel blogging.

Jason Harris is the man behind Jay’s Odyssey and he runs his own show on the blog.  In this episode, we talk about quite a few things.  At times we’re a bit all over the place but I hope my honesty comes through and there and pieces you’re able to leverage for your own blog.  What makes this podcast interesting to listen to is that you really hear from Jay just what he’s struggling with and hopefully my words of wisdom are useful food for thought.

  • The thing that screamed at me Will looking at your notes above is picking a social network which means something to you. I tweet on and off thru the day cause I love the network! I spend little time on FB because it does not make a difference to me. Hanging a bit more on Google Plus but Twitter is my difference maker. Tweeting, engaging, making friends and building bonds has helped me boost my Blogging from Paradise traffic and it’s also helped me build my brand online. Twitter is so easy too; just talk, darnit! LOL….
