First of all, who is my dream reader? Who would I like to reach through my content? What do I want to share with them?
All very tricky questions, but here goes.
I guess it all comes back to why I started my blog and what I wanted to achieve with it. I originally started this blog as a way to keep friends, family and any other interested parties updated on my travels. I hoped to inspire others, as many other blogs out there inspired me, to pack your bags and explore the big wide world.
There are so many beautiful places in this world and I spend so much time daydreaming and reading up about these places that I feel like I’ve been there. But sometimes feeling like you’ve been there isn’t enough.
So after finding inspiration and heading off on my adventure down under (and then consequently writing about it) I found the spark I was looking for. I realised that not only did I enjoy exploring this world, I enjoyed writing about it. And after getting some pretty good feedback from my readers I got a warm fuzzy feeling that you get when you know you’ve reached like-minded people who enjoy reading your work as much as you enjoy writing it. I was hooked!
So to sum up, my ideal reader would be people who share a passion for travel in all its beautiful and sometimes disastrous glory. The beginners just about to take the first leap and the expats who have been bitten by the travel bug so many times, they infect other willing travellers. The small holiday goers, the great adventurers, the dreamers and the risk-takers, anyone who shares this wanderlust we feel when we head off to pastures new, and anyone who enjoys reading about other adventures from home comforts.
There’s a big wide world out there for us to explore, and in the blogging world, I’m glad to be a small part of it.
As always, thanks for reading.
