Tell us more about you and your blog

I started L&G back in 2011 after feeling super uncreative in my day job. I had recently graduated college and barely knew how to cook for myself so decided to try to learn and document along the way. Soon I was able to travel and became engaged so began incorporating travel and lifestyle into my content.

What people don’t realize about blogging is…

It takes more money to run a blog than you think! (hosting, security, scheduling apps, props, etc)

What are 3 things you wish you knew about blogging before you started?

  1. SEO
  2. Do not say yes to everything
  3. Under promise, over deliver

What’s been your most memorable moment as a blogger?

Being on a press tour of the freshly launched Walks of France tour of the Louvre in Paris. I felt so honored to be on the first ever France tour for this amazing company (new division of Walks of Italy) along with members of the French press and other travel writers.
