One of the coolest thing about being a blogger with a social media presence is the opportunities it has led to. In the past year I’ve had the chance to write for a handful of magazines which I love – Anthology, Dwell, and now easyJet. The crazy thing is there has been a role reversal. For writers the process typically involves a lot of pitching and a lot of waiting before anything gets written. It may just be a fluke, but I’ve had the fortune of editors approaching me. Having my blog and my professional work easily accessible online, along side twitter has led to a shift where editors can find me when I don’t even realize they’re looking. There’s still some pitching and finessing of ideas, but it’s an interesting role reversal with contemporary communication. So 5+ years and 1,000+ posts later, something seems to be working.
Anyway, that being said, you can find my latest work about pulling off Parisian style in the September issue of Traveller, easyJet’s inflight magazine. Thankfully, it’s also available online. When it comes to travel magazines, it’s actually one of my favorites – it’s really successful at making me want to visit the featured places (that they conveniently can fly me to) while not making me feel like it’s something completely and absurdly out of my budget. You can download the entire issue if you create a login, or click here for my article!
