My 7 Links that May or May not Deserve to See the Light of Day

Recently we were nominated by Cam and Nicole over at Traveling Canucks to take part in the 7 Links Project started by Trip Base. First off I like the Traveling Canucks because they only use one “L” when they spell “traveling.” Yes, I can be that superficial! Oh, they are also a fun couple to follow around the world. The Goal of the 7 Links Project What you are about to read is lifted directly from Trip Base (yes, I steal sometimes too): To unite bloggers in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again. My son is only 2 weeks old and he is already questioning whether ANY of my posts should have been allowed to see the light of day, let alone subject the world to another round.

A Free Lonely Planet Book Just for You

Today I’m really excited to announce the launching of my first ever book. Not only is this my first book, but it is done in partnership with Lonely Planet, it is FREE, and it features 39 other co-authors who happen to be some of the best travel bloggers around. Around the World with 40 Lonely Planet Bloggers has been my baby for the past year, from conception, to design. I was the project manager for the book and I poured a lot of blood and sweat into it over the past year. I think I also lost a little more hair as well. The ultimate aim of the book is to provide you, the reader, with a tour of not only the world, but also a vetted list of professional travel blogs to help inspire you and your next trip. The concept is simple, put 40 long term experienced travel Read full article…

Blog Party!

We haven’t had a Blog Party (think Block Party without the pony and clowns) here on Todd’s Wanderings for a while so its time to get to know each other better. There is beer further down, keep reading…honest… One of the greatest things about having a blog is being able to connect with so many people around the world. I want to extend the opportunity to you. So, what is a Blog Party? That’s a great question! Basically it’s a chance to tell us who you are, what you do, and where we can find you. It’s a way for us to meet each other, discover areas where we connect, learn new perspectives on life, travel, doing good, or whatever. What you need to do. Wait! Don’t go, I promise, no heavy lifting. Just introduce yourself with your name, what you like to do in life (ie how you travel, what Read full article…

The Backstory behind my New Blog: Travel Blog Challenge

As some of your already know I launched a new website on Monday December 20th called Travel Blog Challenge. Before I get into the specifics you may be wondering what the hell I’m doing starting another website. Todd’s Wanderings takes up a large amount of time, I’m writing 2 books, managing a third book for Lonely Plant, and I have a small full time job with the United Nations managing a large peacebuilding project in a very sensitive area. The truth is, the Travel Blog Challenge is a way to give back to the travel blog community. As Todd’s Wanderings has picked up in popularity I have been inundated with requests for advice on how to monetize a blog, how to build more traffic, and various other how to questions that seem to think I am a crossbow hunter! While I have no idea how to fish with a crossbow Read full article…
