About ALSB73
Joined April 2015
I am new to the blogging community and keen to learn from others as I start my journey to developing a successful online travel blog (I'm travel obsessed!). Would love to hear from anyone else who is doing something similar and would like to buddy up to share ideas and critical feedback (doesn't have to be the same niche) otherwise looking forward to learning all I can.

I currently work in Financial Services in a sales role which I love but my real passion in life is travel and I'm hoping to build a business over the next ten years which I will be able to manage anywhere in the world so I can become a permanent nomad.

I also love sport so would love to connect with anyone who shares those passions. My main sport is running along with yoga, skiing and scuba diving.

I'm from Sheffield, England although I travel overseas whenever I get the opportunity and have visited almost 70 countries but still so many more to see....

Update
Well this week has been fun and frustrating in equal measure. I opted for a highly customisable theme in wordpress which is now looking great but it has taken lots of trial and error to get there. I was struggling to upload pictures and spent hours online to my hosting company trying to resolve the issues without success. They ended up deactivating and reactivating my account and it is now uploading fine.

Images have generally been a real problem for me. I simply don't have the quality of pictures I need in my own albums to entice people into the site so searching for free images online has been a challenge. I've had to a)find the right size which has proven difficult b) figure out which ones I can use c) figure out how to then attribute properly (still not sure I have got this right) and d) figure out how to use Photoshop. It looks like I have to pay for this software once my free trial runs out so if anyone has any suggestions for alternative software which is free I'm all ears. The end result (I think....) looks pretty good but the readers will be the judge of that.

I'm trying to automate as much as possible so I don't get bogged down in managing everything. I seem to have already accumulated tons of passwords for different sites offering blogging tips, Hootsuite, SEO tools and am starting to worry that driving traffic to the site is going to become an endless task.

That said one step at a time - for now I simply need to work on creating the right content to be able to launch the site!

Hey Anne,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Anne and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Thanks that's great. What is your website and how long have you been working on it?

My website is listed on my profile here if you would like to see it. I'm not as far ahead as I'd have liked, I was hit with terrible flu for 2 months after Christmas, so did very little through those months. So I've been working on my site a couple of months now.

But it isn't a race, you work through it at a pace that suits you, this is your business to work as you wish :)
