7 Ways to Support Your Favorite Bloggers for Free

Let's pretend for a moment that you arrived at a blog, one not so different than this one perhaps, read the article you intended, and enjoyed it. What do you do next?

While your own path from there may be different, the vast majority of people who read blogs do something fairly simple: they leave.

Odds are good you do this too, but let's take a moment to go past that. Let's say you really enjoyed the article, or perhaps you have been a fan of that particular blogger and want to help them out. What can you do?

Millennium Hilton Seoul Review – A Business Hotel in South Korea

During our South Korea trip, we decided to splurge on a couple of nights at the high-end Millennium Hilton Seoul with points.

Thanks in part to our diamond status with the hotel chain, we ended up getting a rather nice room on a high floor which was quite comfortable and had a stunning view. 

But while the room and property itself was every bit of what we expect of a Hilton chain, we have to say, this one is perhaps not the best for tourists- it feels like a business traveler hotel more than anything!

How to Visit South Korea Without Spending a Lot of Money

Before visiting South Korea, we weren't quite sure about how cheaply you could travel in the country.

We knew it would likely be much more reasonable than Japan, and assumed it would be much more expensive than South East Asia. Where in the middle it fell, well, we weren't quite sure.

As it turns out, South Korea ended up being quite reasonable overall and we had a stellar time for two weeks for just over $3,000 (excluding airfare, which we paid on points). But for this series, we don't want to just share our own personal spending. Here, we want to look at just how cheap you can get a trip to South Korea while still doing the country justice.

So in this one we will break down traveling in South Korea by spending type and then compare it to how we did on our trip at the end!

Pricing is based on our visit to South Korea in October 2019.

9 Things Bloggers Really Wish PR Firms Would Know and Do

We receive pitches from PR firms just about every single day on our sites, and almost every one of them falls flat in one way, shape, or form.

There is seemingly some disconnect between PR firms and bloggers such that PR agencies don't seem to understand us, and perhaps bloggers do not seem to understand them in return. 

To help with this, I thought it would be fitting to publish a few things that bloggers wish PR firms would know about us, as there are some rather easy explanations for why your campaign pitch fell apart, a blogger ignored you outright, or they quoted a fee for the promotion you are looking for. To help unravel some of these mysteries, and to help educate PR firms about bloggers in general, this post was born.

This article is specifically dedicated to PR firms- agencies that are hired as a 3rd party to represent a brand, product, or destination. While some of the following points are also applicable to DMOs, CVBs, and companies who represent themselves in marketing, a few points are tailored specifically to third party PR firms exclusively. 

So while all marketing teams and agencies may find the following useful or insightful, a few are purposefully written for these firms only.

*Note: I did not crowdsource any of these points. So while I may be speaking solely for myself here, the below echoes many sentiments I have seen in private Facebook groups from my fellow bloggers.
