    My name is Homer and I’m writing from Travel News ( a real time travel community of travel bloggers, travelers and people who like traveling in general. It’s a free and open community for anyone to participate, think of it as digg but dedicated to traveling.

    We would really like your opinion on it and we would love if you could join the community. It is completely free and you can submit as many links as you want there is no limit and they show up in real time.

    Some more info on Travel News; We started travel news as an application for our friends to share interesting links about traveling but became apparent that a lot of people liked the idea and started to share their links. After requests from users we have added lots of functionality like voting/commenting/mark as favorite/read later, many more will follow. Since August 2012 TN has done a great progress, grew 400% since when it started and we expect that growth to continue, more than 200.000 unique visitors every month with 550.000 page views.

    Already a lot of bloggers are submitting their great articles to Travel News, more than 9000 travel articles covering nearly 25.000 destinations.

    All in all we hope to make it a point of reference of finding the most relevant information about destinations and the experiences travelers have in those destination (removing all the noise).

    I hope you join us.

  6. Hi!

    My name is Cherise and I am a freelance writer for my blog Four Seasons of Travel. This year I moved to Italy, to pursue my dream of becoming a travel writer and reviewer, also learning Italian along the way!

    I would love to be considered to write a guest post for Dangerous Business. I am currently living in Florence, Italy, so I am in a hub of travel and tourism opportunities and believe that I can provide a point of interest for your writers, speaking about travelling through Italy with allergies and dietary requirements – as I currently am.

    ‘An estimated 1 in 133 Americans, or about 1% of the population, has celiac disease’ (Celiac Central, 2014). While in Australia the rate has increased to 1 in 70 people (AAP, 2014). I believe that I can provide a new point of view for many people having to deal with these sometimes limiting factors, when travelling.

    I look forward to collaborating with you, and would love to hear your point of view on any other opportunities to work together.
    Kind regards,

    My name is Micah Binns, college student and entrepreneur. I randomly found your page and enjoyed your work. I was wondering if you advertised or worked with businesses that didn’t have anything to do with travel? I’m asking for future references as I’m saving up for Binns Innovation LLC


    • Amanda says:

      Hi Micah! I’m afraid that I don’t really accept advertising unless it’s at least mildly travel-related. Anything else just doesn’t really fit in with my site!

  8. Hi,

    I am a fan of your site as it has given me inspiration during my 2-year traveling.

    I am now settled in Indonesia and have started a surf school with my friend who is from Java.
    I would be interested to share some of my knowledge and write an article to your site about traveling around in Indonesia. I am currently based in Bali but have traveled around Indonesia while my friend is from Java and has been living in Bali for the last 11 years. I am open to your guidelines concerning the article.

    Would love to hear back from you.

    Thank you,
