It’s been snowy and cold here in Chicago.

Yup, that’s right, I’m back home in Chicago

Of course it’s been nice celebrating the holidays with family after not being home for the past three years, but my feet have been getting itchier by the minute. We’re still unsure of how long we’ll be here, but hopefully I’ll have some exciting announcements to make soon!

Exciting announcements I do have now though are that I’ve finally re-branded as Travels in Translation! All of my social media has been switched over and the URL you see at the top will be getting switched out in the next week. In case you didn’t see already, in honor of the re-branding I’m doing a travel goodies giveaway– so go get yourself signed up!

To go along with all of the exciting new changes around here, I’ve finally decided to go forth with a sponsorship program! Sponsorships are huge on lifestyle, fashion and even on food blogs, but they’re pretty lacking on travel blogs.

It’s hard work to get a blog started (trust me, I know). Sometimes it just feels like no one is reading even though you’ve got great content. It took me almost two years to establish the lovely audience that I have now… and I’m so appreciate of you guys!

I know plenty of travel bloggers who also have amazingly dedicated audiences, which is why I think sponsorship programs could do really well in this sector. So without further adieu…
