It's not easy to find balance with your blog. When I started my blogging journey in Sept. 2014, I did so to document my time as an au pair living in Spain. Beyond my friends and family, I never thought about readers. Like so many bloggers, I started out writing diary-type entries. This is what I ...

If you're anything like me, sheltering in place has you dreaming of all the things you want to do when it's safe to go back out into the wider world. For years, I said I wasn't a fan of bucket lists. I didn't like the idea of going places or pursuing experiences just to tick them off a list. But,...

You're well aware of the uncertain times we're currently living in. With the present economic situation in the U.S. (and, let's face it, around the world), many people are looking for ways to safeguard their finances. The need to diversify your income streams has never been more clear. When you c...

Moving abroad wasn't a life-long dream of mine. I didn't write about it in my diary or put it on my vision board.  After college, my plan was to start working as a journalist. I had my internship all lined up! But, about a month before graduation, I realized I wanted to do something different. Ok...

You would think a shelter-in-place mandate would be a blogger's dream come true. Like many bloggers, my to-do list is longer than a line of people waiting to buy toilet paper during a pandemic. From joining affiliate programs to redoing my homepage, there are many MANY tasks I've put off and told...

I'm a firm believer that you don't need a lot of money to have an adventure. Actually, I think the less money you have to spend on a trip, the more likely you are to have an adventure. But, I understand not everyone feels the same. In fact, it never ceases to amaze me how much some people are wil...

Would it shock you to hear that the best vacation I ever had involved walking 200-some miles (many of those in the pouring rain)? What if I told you that on my all-time favorite trip I wore the same clothes day after day, showered with strangers, slept in 80-person dormitories and regularly drank...

While I may be new to Active Rain, I've been interested in the real estate industry for quite some time. Years ago, HGTV shows like "House Hunters" and "House Hunters International" first sparked my interest, but it's the evolution of my understanding of what "home" is that's maintained my ongoin...
