Let’s take a break from travel today to do a little housekeeping, including announcing the winners of my miles giveaway!
The Airline Ticket Winner
Remember two weeks ago when I announced that I would be giving away all my airline miles? Well, the contest is over and I picked two winners. They were chosen randomly using the random number generator site, random.org. There were a total of 5,230 entries. These two won:
Prize #1: Olivier P from Canada wins this prize and is going round trip to New Zealand.
Prize #2: Basem Y (also from Canada) win this prize and is flying to Ottawa.
Congratulations to the winners!
Thanks to everyone for entering the contest. I’ll do it again next year, so if you didn’t win, you can always try again then. But don’t be too sad because in two weeks, I’m going to be giving away a free 12 day trip to Europe, so you’ll have another chance to win something! It’s like Christmas in
Blog Mentorship Program
A few months back, I mentioned that I was going to start a blogging course. However, I decided against that idea. Instead, I am going to turn that blogging course into a limited 12 week mentorship program. Instead of creating just another online course, I am going to do a hands-on mentorship program open to just 10 people. With this program, you’ll get weekly Skype calls with me, hands-on technical help, tutorials on every aspect of blogging, group workshops, videos, a customized development plan, and much more. I am going to help you to build your blogging business and give you the tools to be a success. By the end, you’ll know everything I know.
I’ll be announcing the sign-up date in a couple of weeks and availability will be first come, first serve with the mentorship program beginning in September.
I’ll be attending the following conferences over the fall, so if you are around, come!
TBU Porto – September 7-9th in Porto, Portugal
TBEX Europe – September 21-22nd in Girona, Spain (I’ll be speaking at this event.)
World Travel Mart – November 5-8th in London, England (I’ll be speaking at this event too.)
If you are in Europe, want to learn more about travel bloggers or just meet generally epic people, come check them out. They are worth every penny!
It’s been ages since I did a reader Q&A. Since I find them a ton of fun I am going to start doing them again. Eventually, I’ll get to filming the videos with my answers again but for now, I’ll be answering your questions via blog post. Simply leave a question in the comment section of this post and I’ll answer it. It can be about whatever you want, just make sure to keep it PG!
Ok, that’s it! I just got back to Stockholm from sailing around Croatia (blogs coming soon!) and I’m happy to be back “home.” There’s a lot to do….including finally moving into an apartment!
