Being an electrical engineer and mastering marketing, you must think, Why have I started a Travel Blog? Don’t we know what’s coming for us? We can’t see our future; only God knows it. Hence we have to follow our Passion and gut feeling, which I did.
How did I end up in Seattle?
In 2013 I moved to the States, which changed my life. New country, new culture, and a sort of new language. I know English is not a new language, but where I grew up, we have a different native language and don’t use English in our routine communication, and our accents are also different. I won’t lie to you, I found it a little bit difficult to understand initially, but then I got used to it.
In the United States, Seattle was my very 1st destination. Seattle is so beautiful; I fall in love with it within 2nd day of my stay. Why on the second day? My flight landed in the afternoon at around 1 pm, and it took about 1 hour to clear the immigration and collect my luggage. By the time we reached home, it was around 3:30 pm. My husband had already rented the apartment, so I had a home, but he didn’t set up the kitchen. I had jet lag, so my mind was absent from all the conversation, and I didn’t remember what he was talking about. We decided to take a rest as it was a long journey.
On the 2nd day, he took me to see Seattle downtown and Pike Place Market, and I fell in love with the City. I was in jet lag, and you could tell from my eyes that I was sleepy. The Seattle downtown is charming, and if you haven’t been there, then I think you should plan your next trip to Seattle.
Use the Meetup platform to make friends.
So the initial 3-4 months were like a honeymoon period, and I started exploring the City and the Culture. But still, everything has a saturation point, so it does. One of the most incredible things I found out is Meetup groups. One day I was searching on the Internet, I found out about the Meetup group, which meets twice a week in a nearby shopping mall. I decided to join that Meetup and see how it worked out. I told my husband that I was going to meet up at 11 pm, so you called me at 12 to check out on me because I was scared. The lady who runs this Meetup is so lovely and helpful.
This Meetup taught me about volunteer opportunities in nearby areas and free classes provided by different NGOs. I joined Volunteermatch.com and explored volunteer opportunities in my room. After all this, I still wanted to do something productive, an activity I love to do which can improve my skills.
Why have I started a Travel Blog?
One day I was sitting by the window and watching the rain. The rainfall reminds my old time, and at that moment I remember, I always wanted to create a website on the subject of my Passion. I wanted to make my travel journal and record all the places I have been and all the good/bad experiences I travel. But between study and Job, I never got enough time to sit and explore how I could create a website. And didn’t have enough time to write as well? So I was finally able to fulfill both wishes.
Finally, I got my goal and had plenty of time to reach this goal. I didn’t want to spend money then, so I started googling how to create a free website. And hundreds of websites and forums popped up. I have started reading forums and reviewing pricing plans of Weebly, Wix, WordPress, Blogger, etc. Although they mention “Free,” I always worry about the “*” mark displayed somewhere in the corner. I finally picked blogger.com and asked my husband to review it and find out it is free. After checking out everything, I decided to create my blog at blogger.com.
Why am I mentioning the word “Passion”? I am not a professional writer. So staying motivated to write the blog post is very important. If I create a blog out of interest, I might not get an idea of what to write and how to write. So better to choose a subject that interests you.
For the next part, I will share a step-by-step guide on setting up a blog.

This is amazing. If my life couldve been more exciting I would’ve made a travel Blog too
great idea allows you to get out there and see it all and share it with individuals like me who may never see it at all
Starting a blog usually come out of the blue, you get the idea and you are motivated by that idea. I’ve been blogging since 2005 and it’s one of the most refreshing and rewarding things I’ve ever done. Stay motivated and keep blogging, you’re doing a great job!
