A Lot of Life

May 13, 2009

First off, I finished my ebook. I really pounded away at it and got it done. Thanks to everyone who helped! You can read about it here: http://www.nomadicmatt.com/travel-blogs/make-money-with-your-blog/ but it’s not free. the ebook is 27 dollars but I’ll tell you it is highly worth it! read all the great feedback so far!

Think of it as a way to support all my hard work 🙂

I;m currently in Ko Samet, an island a few hours outside of Bangkok where it is raining. It rained yesterday too. Tomorrow is my last day and I hope it doesnt rain then.  Im going to fly down to Phuket this weekend for 6 days to hopefully get some sun. I can’t go back home pasty white! I refuse! worst comes to worst, i’ll go down to the perhentian islands in Malaysia for a few days before I fly back home.

I picked up a second SEO client. That makes two. I’d like one more…in fact, all I have room for is one more.  So if you are interested, I have good rates 🙂  But I’m excited I have two clients now.

There is a lot of travel coming up for me.  On the 24th I am going to Singapore for a few days.  My visa runs out here and I need to hop the border for a new visa and Singapore is the place to do it. I look forward to eating indian food with my hands again.

A few weeks after that I fly to Scotland where I celebrate turning old…then back to America for a little while. That’s a bit scary. America is a strange place.

There’s a lot going on but I’m glad to be finally moving around again.

I’m Writing a Book!

April 27, 2009

Ok, well, it is an ebook but it’s still a book…in a way.

Since so many travel bloggers ask me about SEO, making money travel blogging, making money blogging, how to run a travel blog, coding question, and the list goes on, I figured I’d put it on in an ebook that people can download and read and learn!

I’m going to write this ebook over the next few weeks and hope to have it done and complete and ready for use by the end of May. The book will include the following:

  • How to Start a Travel Blog (especially picking your focus)
  • Setting Up Your Blog (coding, themes, and some other stuff)
  • Marketing Your Blog (Joining the Travel Community)
  • SEO (Learn to Rank Your lovely new blog high in google)
  • Make Money With Your blog (using adsense, affiliate marketing, getting the right traffic, private ad sales)
  • F.A.Q section.

There’s a lot I tell bloggers about making money and there is a lot I don’t. This will tell some of those secrets I don’t tell publicly because they can get me in trouble with the Big G.

Overall, my goal with this is to share my tips on how I make a living travel blogging. Yes, I actually am making enough to have this as my job now!

That’s my big news…

Ohh, and I’m back in Thailand for the next 6 weeks. Beaches here I come!
