where stylish travel meets social media
Hi there! I’m Jayne, a British expat in Sydney, and this blog is a window into my life of travelling, tweeting and making a social media based living.
You’ll quickly notice that I love to write about stylish destinations, food (especially brunches) and flying, as well as share insight into what goes into running a blogging and social media business. (7 years and counting!)
You may know me as the blogger from 40 before 30, which was the original name of this site, before I achieved that goal of blogging 40 countries and the time came for me to turn 30. If you’re interested you can read about some of the press and awards I picked up during that blogging challenge. (Like that time Cosmopolitan Magazine named me Best Travel Blog or when I won a British Travel Press Award for Travel Blogger Of The Year!)
Ask Me Anything
Why did you move to Sydney?
An Australian man living in London asked me out on Twitter then several years later asked me to marry him on a beach in Thailand. We’re trying on his country for size.
What’s your favourite country?
That’s a tough one. I’m pretty obsessed with the climate, culture and cuisine in South-East Asia. Most of my favourite places are featured here.
Does this site make any money?
Yup. You can check out this post about some of the ways I make money from travel blogging. Most of my earnings come from content and consultancy I produce for other websites but if I am working in conjunction with a brand/sponsor on content you see on this blog it will be clearly labelled in the post.
I’m a brand/PR/tourism board – please can you send me some stats?
Of course. For a copy of the Girl Tweets World media pack please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Media Pack Request’. Simples!
Where can I find out more about your professional background?
Do you run any other sites?
I do. I am also the editor of travellingshopaholic.com, which provides shopping guides for cities around the world, as well as tips for finding bargains abroad and reviews of stylish places to stay.
