I recently attended the Women in Travel Summit (WITS) and was beyond inspired to try something new. I had the opportunity to sit in a room filled with hundreds of inspirational and creative women of all ages. These women have been to countries I’ve only dreamed of visiting (to be honest I didn’t know some existed!). Going to this conference really pushed me out of my comfort zone. I attended all alone, without knowing anyone else and I shared a room with a fellow #WITS16 conference attendee. The entire conference is dedicated to helping bloggers and like minded travel gals to connect, network and learn how to grow your blog beyond a hobby and into a business.
I had a one on one mentor meeting with one of my favorite bloggers-The Travel Fashion Girl.
This leads me to this new site. I’m diving into the deep waters of word press and doing my best to navigate my way to creating a new blog. There is so much to learn about this site and during a breakout session at the WITS conference I learned that word press has an endless amount of plug ins that can make a blog stand out. I know I have a lot to learn and I hope anyone reading this will bear with me as I go through the trial and error phase. One thing that’s positive about making mistakes, is the learning that comes along with making them.
This blog will be very similar to my Blogger site (wonderwumanadventureisoutthere.blogspot.com). However, I hope to blog about travel tips and adventures year round. I’m making it my mission to sit down and write a blog post weekly. When I have an excess in content, I may be able to post multiple times a week-but I don’t want to make any promises I can’t keep.
My husband (Super Nel) and I are days away from our next big adventure. We’re headed to Southeast Asia for a month and to say we’re excited would be an understatement. We’ve spent the last two months preparing an itinerary, packing and prepping for an adventure of a lifetime. Unlike our last big adventure (read: honeygroupmoon), only the two of us are headed to Asia. However, there is a chance that a friend may meet us on our journey if she gets lucky enough to board the right Mac Flight. Company or solo, Super Nel and I love the idea of a month of travel in new places.
Stay tuned for more updates on our pre-flight preparations for Asia and as always-thanks for reading!
