Toya Nicole who's blog is Ms. Travel Chic

What do you hope to experience at BWB 2013?

Networking, how to monetize my blog, developing my personal brand and growing my audience.

Why did you decide to start a blog?

I am very passionate about travel. When I would take trips and post photos on my social media accounts I often had friends (mainly fellow brown girls) comment that they "wish" they could travel like me. I wanted to start a blog to show people that you can travel well in luxury accomodations (if desired) for affordable prices. I also think is important no matter your relationship or financial status to see the world and take a well earned vacation. African Americans dont travel as much as we should and its my hope through my experiences, tips and resources offered via my blog it will encourage them to travel.

Are there specific types of bloggers you are interested in connecting with at the conference?

Travel and Lifestyle bloggers.

What are your top blogging tips for other bloggers?

Be Authentic

Post consistently

Blog about what you are passionate about

Where do you see you and your blog in 5 years?

I would like to be a lifestyle and travel brand expert consulting and motivating black women to travel more. I would like my blog to be a resource for travel tips and resources. I would also like to offer branded "Ms. Travel Chic" travel products like luggage tags, t shirts and travel bags.

Do you need something from your fellow bloggers to take your blogging to the next level?
