Do you represent a travel brand?

At the Backstreet Nomad travel blog I pride myself on being different. Not so that I stand out from the crowd but so that I blend in. Don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with juggling the map, camera and fanny pack while asking for directions, but it’s also just as nice to be sitting with a coffee or a pint at a venue recommended by a local.

Through narratives, interviews, city guides and itineraries, the blog inspires and encourages others to create unique travel experiences by taking the road less traveled, whether this be out in the country or in a big city.

If this is a mindset that you can align with, I would love to hear from you. Brands have the opportunity to leverage an engaged audience through a number of media including advertising space, sponsored posts, product reviews, press trips and more.

Are you a fellow travel blogger?

I love chatting and connecting with other travelers and bloggers because everyone has a story to share, and I’d love to help you share it. As you know by now The Nomad Files is a series in which I take great pleasure in interviewing you about an amazing place you’ve found, that many haven’t.

You can read previous interviews by clicking on the link in the menu or for other ideas, have a read through the media kit as well – it’s not just for brands.

I also occasionally accept guest posts under the following guidelines. The article must:

  • Be written by a travel blogger, (i.e. not a marketer on behalf of another website)
  • Be unique and not be published anywhere else
  • Be of at least 1000 words in length
  • Include a minimum of 5 photos plus a header photo. Photos must be original (not stock photos) and a minimum of 1000px on the longest edge.
  • Remember to include an author’s bio, profile image, website and social media links at the bottom of your post.
  • The article can be anything related to personal travel: destinations, anecdotes, stories, guides, top tips, etc.

[Note that these guidelines only apply to individuals and travel bloggers. Brands should refer to the media kit for more information.]

Thanks for your interest in the Backstreet Nomad travel blog and I look forward to working with you.
