Standing Out in the Crowd
By

Among us, right now, there could be a garage band as game-changing to the music world as the Beatles were. But chances are we’ll never hear a note they’ll play. Breaking out of the pack or being discovered in any creative arena today is as realistic as a blonde hair/blue eyed Minnesota girl showing up […]

Understanding the Stumbleupon Monster
By

New writers and bloggers ask me all the time how I’ve used social media to advance my reach since the launch of Brendan’s Adventures last year. I constantly tell them that I treat social media use like any business would treat advertising. You have to decide if the cost of the advertising is worth the […]

Since I started FarewellTravels.com just over a year ago, I’ve been approached by many writers who say they simply want to write for the site so they can stay in luxury hotels. This always stops me.

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.

  Hi there, I’m Anthony from TheTravelTart.com,… ….and I’m going to write about my experiences on how to land the odd travel press trip here and there – starting from scratch.
