Who am I?
“Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”— Gustave Flaubert.
Hello Everyone, Welcome!
Who Am I and What’s my Topic?
My name is Phiala Drake, I’m 18 years old, I live in Texas and I’m a student at Texas State University. After changing my major twice, I’ve decided to major in Advertising and to minor in French. I am making this blog because it’s an assignment for my Fundamentals of Digital Online Media (FDOM) class but I’ve also always wanted to start a blog. My mom and I have dreamed of making a travel blog ever since we started traveling the world! So, I’ve decided that my blog will be about traveling to different places all over the U.S. and other parts of the world. While traveling around the world, I will be taking pictures and reviewing restaurants, shows, places, etc.
Why a Traveling Blog?
I decided that I wanted to make a travel blog because I’ve always had a passion to travel. Whether it be to a different city in Texas, across the States or out of the country, I’ve loved to travel. Ever since a young age, my parents made it their goal in life to give my brother and I the life they never had; traveling was apart of that. We took many small vacations all over the place which grew my love for adventure. I find it very important to have that traveling experience when you’re young because you develop all sorts of social skills that you might not have gotten by not traveling. However, it’s never too late to start traveling! You will meet so many different people and experience so many different cultures.
What do I Hope to Explore in this Blog?
I hope I can explore and adventure to more places now that I’ve started this blog. This blog has given me an excuse to do my traveling. Now I can justify spending money to go to places! I’m hoping to go to lots of new places that I’ve never been to and give people an in depth review on what it was like so if you were to go there then you’d have an idea of what it’s like.
Who is my Audience?
My audience is anyone who has a passion for travel or is foodie like myself. I will definitely be doing restaurant reviews as well as reviews on places to go. Anyone who wants to explore the world is my audience.
Any Other Pages or Platforms?
I hope to start an instagram page and twitter for this blog so I can provide my viewers with extra content if they want it. I would also love to start a page on this blog called “Fridays in French” and possibly go over some things I learned in my French class. Not only will this help me with my french minor but it could also help others who want to learn french or are learning french. I believe it would be a fun side page to have on my travel blog!
