Blogging, Ignite Media

I’ve made it no secret that one of the top reasons I keep blogging, even with a full-time job and a side business, (plus trying to have a life!), is the incredible web of people that being in this world allows me to meet. I’m a travel blogger (with some crossover), but there are so many different spheres out there. Ignite Social Media recently published a list of Top Female Bloggers, with topics ranging from Food and Green Living to Politics and Tech. If you can believe it, I was so, so honored to represent Travel with three of my very favorite bloggers!

Meet Liz, of Travelogged

When I moved back to the U.S. from Costa Rica, I was so worried that I wouldn’t have a place in the online travel community anymore. I’d found a job (or, it’d actually found me!), and I couldn’t take time off for six long months, the downside to returning to corporate life. One of the online travel pioneers who was a true inspiration to me was an old friend of mine, Liz, of @travelogged. Little known fact: Liz and I met no less than 12 years ago, when we were completing our masters in journalism at Columbia University. The recession eventually led to the loss of both of our jobs but, no surprise to me, Liz retaliated much more swiftly than I did, as you’ll learn from her interview below. After I returned from a month-long trip to Borneo, she asked me to write about it on her blog. Unemployed, slightly depressed, and stuck in the “old journalism” mentality, I had no idea what she was talking about. Fast forward two years, and look at me now!

As I just learned at the TBU travel bloggers conference, Liz and I are both “joggers,” journos who blog. Love us!

I hope you find her as inspiring as I do.

Interview on Flip Nomad

People in my “real life” circles are always asking about my online group of travel junkies. I love it! I’ve met so many of us through my travels, and at events like TBEX. Many more, I will follow religiously online and never meet. It’s all part of the fun! Flip Nomad, a traveler from the Philippines, has a series, Meet the Nomads, where he conducts these cute little interviews with all of us. Mine ran a few weeks ago. Enjoy!
