How I Make Money Traveling

By Steph | November 11, 2013

Talking about money is weird, but I think the time has come. Every week I get around half a dozen emails along the lines of “how can I make money traveling?” or “How do I monetize my blog?” I’m always a little bit loathe to answer, not because it’s a secret, but because as time goes […]

My 9 Biggest Tips for Blogging Success

By Steph | January 21, 2013

I know that the majority of my readers are not bloggers (at least I hope not- go outside! Get some air!), but a lot of you are. This post is for you. I so rarely write about travel blogging on this site (for reasons listed below), but today is different.  I thought I might share […]

TBEX Does Europe

By Steph | October 3, 2012

I’m kind of a TBEX super-fan. The Travel Blog Exchange Conference is the one can’t miss event for me every year (and I’m the kind of girl who regularly misses Thanksgiving and Christmas). Mike and I met back at TBEX New York, and were engaged while out at TBEX Keystone, so the even holds an […]

What I Learned From Teaching at the #Bloghouse

By Steph | October 1, 2012

If you were at TBEX or following along on Twitter you might have noticed a lot of tweets with the hashtag #bloghouse (and if you’re not on twitter you probably have no idea what that means). The Blog House was an exciting new project that Mike and I were able to be involved in that […]

Confessions of a Traveling Male

By Guest Poster | September 13, 2012

This post isn’t by me- obviously. When Jeremy asked to write a guest post he- rightly, pointed out that my blog is somewhat lacking in the male perspective. While his experiences are very different from mine, I’m glad he chose to share such a personal story: So here I am, a twenty-something solo traveler, gallivanting […]

Should You Start a Travel Blog? The Dirty Truth

By Steph | August 28, 2012

I don’t write a lot about the inner workings of travel blogging, but today I want to talk about the travel blogging “lifestyle,” the facts and the misconceptions and the dirty truth about whether you should start a travel blog. It’s kind of an addendum to July’s post on lessons I’ve learned from travel blogging. […]

What I’ve Learned From Three Years of Travel Blogging

By Steph | July 23, 2012

Today, July 23, 2012, is my three year blogaversary! For the past three years I have been pouring my narcissistic travel rants and observations out into the internet, and for some reason you people have kept reading. I don’t usually write about the actual act of blogging, I prefer to stick to travel and the […]

Why I Can’t Travel Like I Used To

By Steph | December 8, 2011

A couple weeks ago I wrote a pretty popular article about the benefits of slow travel: how moving less actually allows you to see things in more depth and detail. I then proceeded to completely ignore my own advice and blow through the rest of Colombia. 8 destinations in 20 days, a whirlwind effort to […]

I’m Writing This Post for Free! (Instead of $400)

By Steph | August 21, 2011

Last week an advertising firm approached me and asked me to write a sponsored post for their client (who shall not be named). They offered to pay me more than my asking price, a lot more. They offered me $400 to be exact. Sweet! You may have noticed that I do occasionally sell sponsored posts on […]

How I Accidentally Turned my Blog into a Clean Slate

By Steph | June 16, 2011

It’s been a long time since I’d seen that dreaded Blue Screen of Death. Years of using macs have spared me the horror, and if mac made a netbook maybe I’d have lived blissfully blue screen free for eternity. I’d almost forgotten the sinking, my guys have turned to lead, feeling that appears when you […]

Bloggers Helping Bloggers: Travel Blog Success

By Steph | February 2, 2010

I don’t usually write about the nuts and bolts of travel blogging, mainly because I haven’t been doing this terribly long and I don’t really feel qualified to give out a lot of advice. That said, I’ve been getting a fair amount of queries lately on how I built Twenty-Something Travel into what it is […]
