Lesbian Travel Bloggers You Should Be Reading

Lesbian Travel Bloggers You Should Be Reading

I’ve been writing a lot lately about traveling the world with my girlfriend, so I started looking for fellow bloggers like myself. There is an abundance of gay men writing travel blogs, but so few lesbian travel bloggers? Travel blogging has become a huge industry, with everybody and anybody blogging about their travel experiences. But, when it comes to lesbian travel bloggers they are few and far between. Personally, these bloggers offer stories I can relate to. They offer a certain humour and perspective about travel, while pushing the boundaries in regards to LGBT issues. So I put together an ultimate list of lesbian travel bloggers that I could find. Now I know there must be more of you out there. Check out the bloggers I’ve listed and make sure you share any I’ve missed, including your own.

The Science Behind Negative Tweets

The Science Behind Negative Tweets

The rise of Social Media has meant that is have become a whole lot easier for people to be negative towards others. For me it’s difficult to understand why anyone would want to be nasty to others whether it’s to there face or online. Is there a science behind why people are more negative on social media, has it unlocked a hidden evil in us all?   It is not difficult to scrutinise others when you have a screen to protect you. The Internet has become digital-fuelled alcohol, we now say things to strangers that we would never say if we met them. They consider themselves less accountable for their actions. But, I’m not just talking about Internet trolls, they aren’t the only ones who try to embarrass, scrutinise and ridicule people online. “In the real world people subconsciously monitor the behaviour of others around them and adapt their own behaviour accordingly […] Online we do not have such feedback mechanisms.” – Graham Jones According to Sherry Turkle’s study based on hundreds of interviews over 15 …

Why I Started Blogging

Why I Started Blogging

I first started a blog many years ago; which I deleted. I was young and looking back it was dreadful. A few years later I began another on wordpress. I kept this blog up for a few years. I wasn’t an avid blogger, but I had some followers (I guess). However, I always wanted to start my own self-hosted site, I wanted to take blogging a little more seriously. After I quit my job to travel the world I decided to take the plunge and fork out some money for my own domain name. Curiousjessie.com was born. So I started blogging about my travels. Along side sharing my adventure with the world I also blog for other different reasons. Here are few reasons why I started blogging: Blogging is a great way for me to practice my writing (my grammar can sometimes be awful). I studied Journalism at university and writing is something I wanted to scrub up on. I also wanted to develop my own voice. I’m extremely envious of those who have a …

Three Social Media Mix-ups

To begin I’m not writing this post claiming to be some social media expert, who uses social media so profusely that when I tweet everyone takes notice. I could tweet and it would result in… … (No, that’s just odd!). There is no such thing as an expert; it’s all an experiment. I’m just someone who uses social media regularly, who notices a few things people persist in doing. Each platform works differently. They may all be starting to look and feel alike, but each is different, each has a different purpose. I just can’t help but notice these social mix-ups. 1: Posting Instagram Photos On Twitter When you post an Instagram picture on Twitter it actually appears as a link. Twitter has even taken steps to suggest people stop posting photos from Instagram to the social network. A number of Twitter’s ‘verified’ users recently received an in-app alert, which reminded them to post their photos directly on Twitter to make sure your fans always see them. Yes, that’s me! Twitter NOT Instagram 2: Posting Hashtags On LinkedIn When we talk about hashtags, in most …
