Solo Travel Blog
I’m starting a Travel VLOG and Here’s why
I am starting a Travel VLOG. I’m not sure if the world needs an Irish Travel Vlogger but this is what I intend to focus on for the upcoming year and here’s why;
Irish Travel Vlogger on YouTube
I made a decision last month to be relentless. No matter what it took, I was going to aim high and work harder, longer and better. I started by getting up at 5am and writing everything down that needed to be done each morning.
It was a simple plan and it worked wonders. I could see an immediate improvement in my work ethic and more importantly, I was finding time for the content of my own blog. And it was only then that I remembered how this is hugely important to me – the website and the people who have shown their support for it over the years.
Falling out of love with Instagram
But my decision to add a VLOG to this content actually began with my Instagram account, where the “quality” of my feed has declined rapidly over the past month. See, it just felt wrong to be creating so many “beautiful” images that did not reflect the actual reality of what I do. Instead, I stopped thinking about what was being posted and just started to have some fun with it. As a result, my Instagram account now looks very unprofessional but I’m quite happy about that now.
Anyway, it was also around this same time when I started making videos again. It was fun to take time away from writing and I thought to myself:
“This is such a weird and utterly bizarre lifestyle. I wonder what people would think if they saw the actual reality of what I do for a living? I mean who reads books in nightclubs?”

So that’s it – 2017 will be the year that shit gets real and I start invading your news feed with my big ugly mug.
