Prepping Your Technology For Travel

When you’re preparing for a trip, you might be thinking about getting all your travel documents in order and packing your suitcase, but you should also think about digitally preparing for your journey, as well.

On Getting Professional Graphic Design for your Travel Blog

Lately I’ve been writing some blog tips that I hope you’ve all been finding useful. Today I’m going to talk about getting professional graphic design services in order to enhance your blog. I’m a professional graphic designer and in the course of my career, I’ve seen and heard some of the same questions and misconceptions from clients time and time again. I’m hoping this informative post will help any of you out who have been wanting to get some professional design done for your blogs.

Places to host your blog images to save storage space.

Welcome back to another blog advice with Heather session. I’ve been writing posts on blog tips lately because I’ve been getting questions from people looking for advice and instead of answering all those questions individually, I like to just write up a post so more people with the same questions can benefit. Today we’re going to talk about storage space on your blog.

On Photography Usage Rights for Travel Bloggers

You all know me as that person who is always writing about her amazing trips and adventures, but in addition to being a travel writer, I’m also a graphic designer. After all, I have to pay the bills somehow! In my professional career, I’ve learned a lot about visual communication and I’ve noticed that I often get questions about these things from people who aren’t in the profession. Today I’m going to talk about photography usage, because it’s something I think a lot of bloggers out there could benefit from learning about.

On Getting Fingerprinted While Entering Japan

I am writing this story for all of you out there who, like myself, have “faint” fingerprints that can’t be read by machines. I know you’re out there, and I also know that if you’re planning on traveling to Japan, you’ll likely be wondering what will happen when they fingerprint you at the border, which they do for all foreign nationals entering the country. Quite frankly, I had a hell of a time getting reliable information on the topic when I was planning my trip to Japan, so I wanted to write a detailed account of my experiences to help out my faint fingerprinted brothers and sisters out there in the hope that this will save you some of the frustration I faced when researching the topic.

Great Photo Apps for Travelers

More and more of us are traveling these days with just a smart phone rather than carrying guide books, maps, a music player, a phone card, and a camera like in the old days. Remember carrying all that stuff? It’s nice to have the load lightened. Still, for those of us who love taking beautiful photographs, we may sometimes feel a smart phone doesn’t capture our images in just the way we want them. Not to worry, there’s an app for that! Obviously, Instagram is a great go-to app for making beautiful travel photos. (shameless plug for my Instagram!!!) However, when Instagram just isn’t enough, there are plenty of other apps out there to help you create and edit your travel memories just the way you want them.
