Please tell us a bit about your blog…
I started Paige Minds The Gap when I studied abroad in England during college. Now, my blog focuses on travel in the Southern U.S. with some international travel here and there.
How long have you been blogging?
I’ve been blogging since January 2013. So 8+ amazing years!
What inspired you to start your blog?
I started my blog initially as a way to share my study abroad journey with my family. I kept it up after the experience because I loved writing and traveling and sharing my tips with others.
How do you feel about being chosen as Get Blogged’s blogger of the month?
I’m very honored to be chosen! It was such a nice surprise!
Name the best opportunity you’ve had because of blogging…
I get to explore so many awesome places thanks to blogging! I recently had the opportunity to review a winery transport service, so I got three of my friends to come with me for a girls’ weekend in the mountains doing wine tastings. It was so much fun to be able to share that with them and for it to be my job at the same time!
What are your tips for bloggers who want to make money with their side hustle?
Learn SEO and learn it early. Once you’ve learned to master SEO, your blog traffic will start to take off! And then you’ll be in the best position to make money with sponsored posts, affiliate links, ads, however you want to monetize.
What are your tips for bloggers who want to make money with Get Blogged?
The pitch is the most important part, but it doesn’t have to be this scary thing. I used Get Blogged’s pitch guides to create a template I use with every pitch. Keep it short and don’t forget the important things: your best site metrics, why your blog is a good fit, and what you can offer the brand.
