Get to know one of our Travel Insurance Master Affiliates, Lyndsey of Leisure Lowdown! Based in Michigan, Lyndsey focuses on travel and food experiences and recommendations along with anything leisure related!
Lyndsey, when did you start your blog?
Walk me through how or why you started?
Well, I really wanted to start a side business with low investment needed and no overhead. After some thought, I realized I love to write, travel, and eat so why not start a blog? As a plus, it tends to serve as a journal as well!
Do you feature a specific type of travel or area?
No, I mostly focus on where my travels take me. That could be a weekend camping with family or a trip to Vegas; I share my experiences and then recommendations.
What is your favorite part about being a blogger?
My favorite part about being a blogger is being able to do something I enjoy at the same time helping people to some extent along the way.
What is your favorite or dream destination?
My dream destination is a trip to Scotland.
What is your favorite travel tip?
Overplan. Now, I don’t mean planning every detail of your trip down to the minute but more so having a list of all the activities you wouldn’t mind doing and all the places you would like to eat ready for the picking. This will give you immediate options if say one of your hopeful restaurants is closed (common occurrence with the pandemic); you can try another one on the list without having to scramble.
What suggestions do you have for bloggers or what has been the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome with your blog?
The biggest obstacle I have had to overcome with my blog is increasing traffic.
