It was our dream for many years – location independence – and three years ago we finally got our travel blog, and income, to the stage where we felt comfortable to dive in to the life completely defined by us, one based around lots of time and travel with our kids!
Take it from us – learning how to make money blogging doesn’t happen over night but neither does climbing up the corporate ladder. There are challenges, but it’s a very rewarding and worthwhile dream if you do it right!
We share many of our travel blogging tips in our blog posts and to those subscribed to our digital lifestyle email community. You also get access to the following free training – it could save you time and money and help you earn thousands!
We have broken this page into categories to help you learn how to blog and covers all our insider blogging tips from what we have learned over the years to become one of the world’s biggest travel blogs, plus all the tools and resources we use to run our online business.
