Blogger Recognition Award

Although my blog is still very young and truth be told I haven’t dedicated as much time to SEO and social media strategies as I should, receiving recognition from other bloggers is so encouraging! I am really honored and have to thank Daniela at The Lost Romanian for the Blogger Recognition Award.

What is the Blogger Recognition Award?

  1. The nominee writes a post, thanking the nominator.
  2. Nominee shares a brief story about how the blog started.
  3. Nominee shares 2 pieces of advice to new bloggers
  4. Nominate 15 bloggers for the award!

How Jet Set Steph Began

Jet Set Steph began organically as a way to share my travel experiences and tips to friends and family. I hugely value and prioritize travel during my holidays from my full-time job and try to seek out unique experiences and places. I have been fortunate to see many cities around the world and am often approached for advice. After consistently forwarding the same emails from a Gmail folder, I decided to instead publish my travels for all to see in hopes of inspiring more people to book their next trip. I know what it’s like to have only a few days here and there to travel, and I reach readers who are ready for a tried and true fun adventure. Check out Jet Set Steph to see where I’ve been lately!

Advice for New Bloggers

  1. If you started your blog to receive free hotel stays, trips or other perks, stop now. Blogging is hard work, and it’s already a crowded space. You need to offer something of value to your readers that is unique to your voice. Finding out exactly what that is –after much trial and error – is a labor of love. If the passion isn’t there, it will be evident in your blog.
  2. Make a plan. When I started, I made the decision on a whim and just hit publish. I didn’t have a real plan or know much about the space (and arguably, still don’t!). Having a consistent content schedule and having a better understanding of SEO from the get go will be tremendously helpful.
