Well, I’ve been blogging about my travels for 6 years now but each and every time I’ve done it in the past I’ve used GetJealous.com which I must say is a fantastic user friendly blogging platform which I have recommended to numerous people. I had a lot of fun with my Get Jealous sites and am almost sad to have made the move over to here. The main reason for the move to WordPress? Well I wanted somewhere to keep everything together, my old sites expired after a year and I had to pay to keep them up, each was on a separate address it just made sense to move to here. With a bit of luck I will have more readers on here than just my Mum, Dad, Auntie and her friends.. no offence guys! 😉
For those of you who don’t know me I should probably explain the way I go about blogging. Some bloggers will give you information overload, some will bore you to sleep and some will no doubt be better than me. I blog for pleasure, I don’t do it to make money, although if I thought people wanted to pay me I’d be more than happy to have a go. Because I do it for pleasure and I’m not being paid to advertise, I can tell you my honest opinions on places I’ve been, kit I use, and accommodation I’ve stayed in. To be fair, I’d do that even if I was being paid, no one wants to buy a backpack to find out that when you’ve put 20kg in it the stitching starts to break! Anyhow, back to my point, I do it for fun and because I absolutely love travelling, If in any way shape or form I can help someone or give them advice I will always have a go. I write my posts in a light hearted banter type of way, I try to write as though I’m sat in the pub with you having a pint and telling you about this really hilarious moment when I was on a bus in Nepal and a lady with a couple of chickens and a goat got on and how I later found out that my bag was covered in goat piss. That’s what I would want to read and so that is how I aim to write, if nothing else, I hope I can provide you with a few minutes of light hearted entertainment whilst you are having that morning cup of tea!
