Since returning home from our long-term trip, we've been brainstorming a number of business ideas that we could pursue from home. As much as we love sharing our international travel stories here, which we plan on doing for a long time to come, we needed to do more in order to meet our income goals and achieve financial independence.
One of the ideas we had was launching a new travel blog focusing on a specific city. After researching the idea further we realized that the potential for these style of websites in the travel niche is far greater than anything we could do with this global travel blog, and Discover the Burgh was born.
Like general travel blogging, running a city blog does have its pitfalls. You have to be active in the city. A lot.
This means frequently going out to restaurants, trying every attraction there is, and spending a lot of money before you may bring that back in. It may sound a little daunting, but this one came easy to us.
We were going to do that anyway.
So other than enjoying the city you live in, why should you consider launching a city blog and why did we do it in Pittsburgh? These are the questions truly worth answering.
