I am so glad I looked at this post. I found it enticing and I liked the references you provided. I am looking to start a travel blog but with as little as money as possible and I need money to travel, but I also need money to pay bills. So knowing others are in my boat is a bit relieving. I am going to click on those links and check out the sources provided, I am trying to do as much research as possible to help work out some of the kinks before I am confronted with them. I hope to get to live at my dream and travel and get paid to do it, I live hearing the successful stories to keep me motivated.
