Hi Tom,

I hope all is well. Based on your last post about your hike I gather that it is.

I know you don’t have much time, so I’ll be brief. I graduated last semester from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. One year ago, I studied abroad in Ghana and I discovered my passion for traveling and entertaining through a blog. I was blogging mainly for my friends and family, but I still managed to get over 10,000 hits during my 5 months abroad. I also dabbled with iMovie and made a few videos.

I’m planning on teaching English somewhere exotic in SE Asia sometime in the near future. I actually have been to Korea for a week to visit my brother who taught English there. Though, I’m leaning towards going to Vietnam.

While I teach there to earn money, my main focus will be my blog, as I plan to make videos, write songs, and generate quality content. I’ve researched a lot about how to generate income from a blog, but I feel like travel blogs are quite different. My big dream is to have my own travel TV show one day; I love being in front of the camera. I aim to entertain as well as educate and inform.

I was wondering if you had any advice as to how I can prepare as much as possible so that when I get out to SE Asia, I can be ready to hit the ground running.

I understand if you are too busy to give me an in depth response or prefer not to talk about this given our limited interactions in the past. However, if the professor in you has any pearls of wisdom or specific suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance and I hope we can connect.
