One of the big things that happened to me last year was my acceptance to the Lonely Planet Blogsherpa program. Basically, we’re a pool of bloggers from around the world and our posts are featured on lonelyplanet.com.
Then came the e-book…
Today, 40 Lonely Planet travel bloggers come together as a group to release their first free photo ebook. “Around the World with 40 Lonely Planet Bloggers” takes readers on a world tour featuring almost 70 countries, and introduces the world of professional travel blogging. Within it, each blogger, hand picked by Lonely Planet, shares a collection of stunning photos that capture the essence of their travel.
In addition to an eye-popping collection of photographs, the book is a rich resource for anyone with a passion for travel who wants to learn from the experts. “The 40 BlogSherpas showcased in the ebook specialize in travel modes ranging from solo to couples to family travel, road trips, budget travel, expat living, voluntourism and even perpetually traveling digital nomads,” explains Karen Catchpole, one of the featured bloggers. An accomplished group, the BlogSherpas have reached beyond their own blogs, having been published in the likes of National Geographic Traveler, Huffington Post, Travel + Leisure, AFAR and more.
— Lonely Planet Travel Bloggers Launch Free Ebook press release
One of my not-so-secret goals last year was to release an e-book, which I partly done in the form of my Calaguas Travel Guide. Never expected something of this magnitude though!
I’ve seen the e-book and all I can say is that it made me want to pack my bags and just go! Around the world with 40 Lonely Planet Bloggers is a FREE download. Get your copy now! 😀
