July 13, 2017 It seems that every year on my birthday, this blog undergoes a transformation. Sometimes it becomes personal, once it transformed into a study abroad blog, then a work abroad blog—briefly it became a host for my creative nonfiction writing. During the latest transformation, when I was refocusing my website to concentrate on the business of travel copywriting, it disappeared altogether. Tuesday was my 30th birthday, so as a present to myself I’m revamping the blog yet again! Word for 2017 My Word for 2017 is: Focus. So that’s what I’m doing here. I rededicate this blog to more focused writing on travel, travel writing, and copywriting. There will be news, opinions, service pieces. If you haven’t subscribed yet, feel free! I’ll send out a monthly newsletter filled with posts, interesting things on travel and writing I find on the web, and the occasional photo. Don’t worry, I won’t bombard your inbox—I’m more into slow travel anyway.
