Travel Blog Success

| by Jason | 16 Comments » | Blogging Tips

Make Money With Your Blog has come a long way since it’s inception in June of 2024.  We didn’t succeed on our own, for this was a subject not very familiar to us initially.  We succeeded with the help of several travel bloggers and travel blogging resources, most notably, created by David Lee of (more…)

How Bloggers Should Set Advertising Rates

| by Jason | 36 Comments » | Blogging Tips

Blog MoneyIndie films, indie music and now indie bloggers.  That’s right, we are independent bloggers struggling to be discovered with very little resources.  But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t value your work or time.  This article will suggest a new internet advertising pricing structure for bloggers that better fits the business of online advertising for bloggers.

Selling Advertising on a Blog

Have you been asked to sell a banner ad, widget, text link or contextual link on your website?  Do you offer long-term contract discounts?  You might offer these online advertising discounts because you have noticed ad agencies continually asking for them.   They prefer to lock down 12-month terms for a bargain price.

What’s Next For Two Backpackers

Hikers Leaving Hoboken NJ

Our Last Day in Hoboken, NJ

It all began as a casual conversation during lunch in a restaurant in NYC in March of 2024.   Five months later we set off on a year long round the world travel backpacking journey.  Now, we are back home in New Jersey trying to figure out what’s next for Two Backpackers.


What we learned most from our trip was to be flexible.  Flexibility turned our around the world trip into a Latin America backpacking trip.  It turned 1 year into 11 months so we could surprise family.  We discovered Colombia is awesome, El Salvador has some hidden gems such as Alegria and traveling with strangers such as Andy and Paulina from London is lots of fun.

Monuments in Paris

Arc de Triomphe (Arch of Triumph) in Paris, France

Ever since I can remember I have absolutely loved the idea of travel.  When I was in college I pursued a study abroad program in France and I was hooked on travel for life.  I knew then that I would do much more of it in the near future and beyond.  Nothing feels more rewarding and educational to me than experiencing a new place, language, people, food and everything that comes along with it.  My passion for travel made me want to evoke wanderlust onto others.

Travel Blogger Meet Up

The last few weeks we’ve been spending time with a few other traveler bloggers just like us.  These are people who are also traveling and sharing their experiences on-line for the world to see.  By writing, taking photos and sharing videos, we are all naturally encouraging others to travel to the places we have been or places they have always dreamed of.  The point is, the message we all have for others is to get out there and travel.

During our time together we’ve been sharing travel stories, favorite and worst places visited, itineraries and opinions.  After a few days full of conversation, I began to notice a few patterns surrounding what we were all discussing. (more…)

| by Jason | Comments Off | Central America

Our first article in an effort to support our goals of making traveling and blogging sustainable for us.  We have enjoyed sharing our stories, photographs and tips with you so much that we want to continue visiting different places around the world in an effort to motivate others sitting on the fence or bring the world closer to those that are unable to travel.  In order to accomplish this goal, we need to promote our blog as often as possible.  And that means winning cheesy web awards.
