For Love or for Money

Or for both? Yes, both is the ultimate, the ideal. That elusive carrot at the end of the stick that I’m chasing. It’s been a while since I’ve done a personal, more philosophical post, and this might be a bit of a “poor me” pity party so please forgive… I’m at a weird place in […]

The Evolution of an Idea

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. WHERE do ideas come from? And why do some people run with an idea, while others abandon it? Some ideas come like a bolt of lightning, but I think most ideas slowly evolve until you get to the “why didn’t I think of this ages ago?”Since I know […]

Why travel?

Tweeting, Stumbling and Pinning oh my!

My head is swimming. Since I’ve started my Matador U Travel Writing course I’ve been thinking more about social media and it’s importance. Thus far I haven’t really paid that much attention to it and that just might be why I don’t have more blog followers. In actual fact I’m pretty happy with the amount […]
