You know when you have an idea in your head that just never leaves?
That is how blogging has always been for me. I’ve been debating
it for years and actually had a taste of a blogging lifestyle when I
blogged for EF CollegeBreak on a trip to London, Paris, and Barcelona. See
my adventures here: http://efcollegebreak.tumblr.com/search/crystal. I
greatly enjoyed sharing my experiences with everyone, but that was easy; EFCB
handled maintenance and promotion and I had a built-in audience. Starting
my own blog is much more daunting. However, it may cure my Pinterest
addiction (you know you have a Pinterest addiction problem when you go on
Pinterest when you randomly wake up at night!) At least running my own blog may
be productive; networking, you know? Most published authors have blogs, so
I might as well start building some archives. My school schedule is loaded
this semester, so I will do my best not to let the blog get in the way of
schoolwork, however, my personality is really obsessive. Once I find that
I enjoy something, I have to go all in. For example, recreational figure
skating wasn’t enough for me. Instead, I had to move 1,584.2 miles away
from home to skate at an Olympic Training Center Site. This blog will
detail my adventures training alongside elite skaters, my various
obsessions (England, books, writing), and when I go abroad, my
adventures there! If anyone out there reading this has any tips for a
newbie blogger, that would be much appreciated!
Hi, I’m Crystal! Just like you, I love to travel. You’ll get all the best tips and insights from my experiences as a former ice-skating coach in Iceland and former study abroad student. Of the 24 countries I have visited, a type 1 diabetes diagnosis has been the strangest land yet. Type 1 has not slowed down my travels and you'll learn how to take type 1 with you on the road! You can connect with me further on Instagram @CrystalChilcott, or send me ideas of where I should travel next via email: firstname.lastname@example.orgHappy Travels, Crystal
