I’ve been blogging all sorts of stuff since 2009 but I’m kind of new to travel blogging as a niche. Only this year that I resolved to take a huge giant leap in changing the whole face of this blog—after reading other travel bloggers‘ stories of how they use their blog as a medium to connect with their readers, that ultimately lead them to create a solid fan base of their own. So, here’s my attempt that one day, I’d be able to accomplish half of what they had done by becoming a full-time travel blogger. Yes, there is such thing.
Let’s face it, traveling can be cheap, but still, it needs money to sustain your thirst to wander around. Before and when we travel, there are a couple of things we have to consider, be it for our convenience, safety and peace of mind.
