My name is Matt Hulland and when I quit my career of 15 years to travel, it woke something up inside and changed my life. I now have a job I love, released two books on Amazon and run The Travel Blogs, an interactive travel blogopedia. Ask me anything . . . about blogging, travelling, digital marketing, anything really, let's have some fun!
After 15 years working in the hotel industry, I had had enough. Enough of the unsociable hours, the poor wage, the guest (not all, but most), I was burnt out. I had a good career behind me, working my way up in prestigious properties in both the UK and the US, but I was done.
I saved and saved and saved until one day I could finally run away. My first solo trip was through Africa doing some volunteer work along the way. Once that was over I picked up a job at home as a barista and started saving again. A year later I was off again.
When I returned I had no idea what I wanted to do but was ready to give anything a go, as long as it wasn't hotels.
In between trips I had undertaken a charity challenge to raise money for a school building project in Africa. As part of it I released my travel diary as an advice book on Amazon. Called How to Clean Your Underwear in Africa, it sold well with the proceeds going to the charity.
It was this new found creativity that led me to my new job in digital marketing and creating The Travel Blogs. It is a site that I share blogs from undiscovered talent as well as known bloggers and my own writing.
So that's where I am now. Free free to ask me anything about travelling, whether stories or advice, digital marketing or just say hello!
