In an earlier post on this site, I wrote about the differences in self-publishing via traditional print and Print On Demand (POD). My latest book, Time Zones, Containers and Three Square Meals a Day, was published via POD, which was a new experience for me. Print On Demand is a digital way of getting your […]

Editor’s Note: The following is reprinted from the Global Bloggers Network newsletter, with the gracious permission of Janice Waugh. I was asked recently how I manage a guest post that just isn’t the quality that I want on my site. And from there, the discussion expanded. We discovered that there are many issues around guest […]

How I Get My Travel Stories
By

After recently attending a NYC press event, I noticed three bloggers wrote about the news that had been announced, the very next day. It was then tweeted, retweeted, posted and shared around on Facebook. I’m assuming at least a portion of the paper magazines that were represented at the lunch will also run the news. […]

Looking to get more mileage out of your travel writing? You’re probably aware of the concept of taking your travel experience and writing about it in different formats.

Why I Fired a Travel Writer
By

I’ve been working on this post for several days now….. …and hesitated even publishing it but on Monday I read Trisha’s “Why Am I Not Getting Invited on Press Trips?” Then, a couple nights ago @solofriendly and @dkferm had a similar discussion.

We’ve all had a computer breakdown. One day, it might simply not turn on. Or perhaps the cursor may suddenly become hyperactive and unpredictable, or the screen may flash every time you hit “enter.” Everyone has some story. And presumably, everyone has someone they call at these frustrating moments. Chances are the “someone” is somebody […]

For most travel writers, finding the time to write while on the road is a challenge. Everything is a distraction – the excitement of going to a new place, meeting new friends, experiencing a culture different from your own.
