I never thought I was the type of person who would have a blog. I love reading other people’s blogs, and I always look to them for travel tips or yummy recipes, but it just never seemed like something I’d do myself.
Well, opportunity arose: while looking for ways to write and make money while I’m away from home and out of a consistent salary, I came across a website called travelicious.com.au. They’re looking for writers, and I’m looking for ways to get involved in the freelance writing scene. Upon successful application, they publish and pay for a travel article written about any place you want! Only one catch: you have to create a blog ($12) and follow a writer’s guide to creating websites and writing interesting content. Well – I didn’t have much to lose so I decided to go for it. Loisislost is the result! I’m now a proud property owner with my very own little home amid the vast web universe.
I’ve got to say that I think this is the push I needed. I love writing, but can never seem to find an appropriate outlet besides journals and rough, unfinished Microsoft word documents. I hope this will help me work towards further freelancing goals, while at the same time (hopefully) inspiring a few people and just generally providing updates on where I am and what I’m up to!
I hope you’ll follow me along on this new adventure in writing, as well as in my travels. 🙂
You can read my very first internet published article (yay!) on the travelicious website here: http://travelicious.world/hiking-the-juan-de-fuca/
If you’re interested in creating your own blog and writing an article for them as well, you can check out their application page here: http://travelicious.world/write-for-us/. No experience is required and for me it’s been good so far. I’ll be sure to update if anything changes. And if you already have a blog and have any advice for me, I’d love to hear it!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more. 🙂
