March 2011, I got an invitation from Michael, as well known as @artofbackpackin . He invited me to join Art of Travel Blogging and I gladly accepted the invitation. I’ve been running Runaway Juno for one and a half years now and turning this world into a fun business. I can’t say I’m successful at this stage but happy to say that I’m heading toward a right direction.
Ever since I got back from my US trip, I’ve been working really hard. I’ve been blogging for almost two years, but there are still lots of technical and practical parts that I didn’t know about. Every single day I’m working harder than cubic farmers who I escaped from. And in the process, Art of Travel Blogging came to rescue.
I just created ‘Got Question?’ page. With the same reason. Monetizing with travel blogging is hard but not impossible. For me, most of the problems were there was no one to ask and even I had no idea what to ask. We still can privately send an email to experienced bloggers, but that’s not always an easy thing to do.
If you are frustrated with not knowing, and looking for experienced bloggers to talk to, then you would be happy with Art of Travel Blogging.

Why I like it
Michael, the man who’s behind Art of Travel Blogging is well known for his very successful travel blog, Art of Travel Backpacking. I’ve been following his blog, so it’s more convincing that he offers successful blogging tips to travel bloggers.
More importantly, he is very open and easy to talk to. For me, this is an important factor. What you can get out of from the money you pay is important in the premium forum, but the easy access can be a great criteria. Hence, my favourite about Art of Travel Blogging is the forums are very easy to start the conversation. It feels like we are learning and discussing together. Also the answers are helpful and fast.
