You may have seen my recent post reflecting on the first few months of travelling New Zealand. I thought I’d go into more depth and create a few travel guides for places we’ve visited.
Auckland seemed a good place to start, as we spent two weeks there before heading off on a South Island road trip. I’m currently staying in Auckland again, so there’ll be lots more to come from this crazy place!
I was sorting through my blog categories the other day. When I got to the travel section, I realised I haven’t actually published that many posts about travelling in New Zealand.
When I wrote this post about quitting my job, a few people got in touch to say they wanted to see what I got up to.
As a blogger and freelancer, I kind of rely on other people to support me. I’m pretty happy to say that, from day one, I feel like I’ve been pretty supportive of other bloggers.
Recently, I’ve really felt the need to pay it forward even more. I’ve been thinking of different ways that others’ might appreciate my support.
Vix Meldrew tweeted a little thread the other day about the lack of real engagement and community going on with bloggers at the moment and I completely agreed.
Think about what bloggers and freelancers, in general, are looking for. Views and followers, yes. Sponsorship and exposure, maybe. Genuine interaction, engagement, interest in their content, definitely.
So, with that in mind, here are some ways in which I think we could all support each other more.
