Admittedly, I am a bit new to this whole writing thing, but everyone has to start somewhere. One of the many things I am trying to do is get the word out about my website, in addition to getting published in as many excellent print or web magazines as will take me. If you’d like me to write for your publication, please feel free to contact me.
Here are the places I have written, been mentioned in or interviewed by:
- Huffington Post: Currently a regularly contributor to the travel section of the Huffington Post. HuffPost has a Google Page Rank of 8 and averages 14+ million visitors a month.
