I decided it’s time for all of you to take a little peek into my world and see what it’s like to tackle being a travel blogger. I am learning new things constantly and while at times it is infuriating running this whole operation by myself, I also KNOW I’ll get there. (or die trying)
Well, the best thing that has finally happened to my blog as of recently is that I FINALLY got my RSS feed fixed. I’m not even sure how the heck it happened. Did karma finally come back to me in the midst of a mercury retrograde? Why yes, yes it did! Ok, enough hippie babble. That is amazing for 2 reasons: 1. It means I can connect to Feedburner. 2. It also means I can finally officially connect to Bloglovin, and that means you can as well! Click on the link provided at the top of this post to check it out!
I actually have a few subscribers now, so the next step in my journey is to figure out Mailchimp a little better so that I can actually send them goodies! I have no idea what to use to prompt others to sign up for my e-mail list more, but maybe the time has come for me to formulate an e-book. My numbers are steadily increasing each month and I am on set to have at least 1,500 pageviews this month. I just won a newbie blogger award and am also thinking I need to create a press kit STAT! What do you guys think? Is it ever too early for a press kit?
I’ve actually been considering re-branding the blog into a lifestyle blog to include more writing subjects. I just can’t come up with a good domain name to incorporate it all but I also think I shouldn’t underestimate the power of a niche travel blog like I have. Ideas?! I’m always open to feedback as long as you aren’t just being a hater. Haters need not apply.
THANK YOU so much for following me on my journey and checking out my blogging update. I’ll do a blogging update once a month so you newbies have an idea of what to expect! Travel out loud!
