We have been blogging full-time since October 2017, and oh my goodness, has it been a crazy ride! We’ve learned so much about the world of blogging (and about ourselves). It has been so much work and very difficult at times, but now we can’t imagine ourselves doing anything else.
Blogging has its stressful parts, but I truly think it’s the best job in the world. I still can’t believe that this is what I get to do for a living.
Not only is writing about travel our dream job, but it has helped us create our dream lifestyle. No alarm clocks (well, except for our kiddo!) and pretty much endless freedom.
Here’s what I mean:
- Our travel blog has allowed us to take as many vacation days as we want.
- This business allowed us to have a very comfortable parental leave (for both of us!) after our daughter was born.
- It has allowed us to purchase our first home in 2021 (in one of the most competitive markets in the US). Yes, really.
- Our business has helped us almost pay off our student debt (of more than $80,000!). We’re hoping to make that final payment in 2023 *fingers crossed*.
- Our blog has earned 6 figures for 4 years and counting.
- This business has introduced us to some incredible friends and has given us opportunities we never would have imagined existed.
- We get paid to travel. ‘Nuff said.
