Travel Blog Consulting

Have you ever dreamed of being your own boss,
working from anywhere in the world?

Let me guess... 

You're spending hours each day on your blog, but your audience isn't growing. Your blog posts are interesting, you signed up for every social media channel on the planet, have been guest posting like crazy, but the needle just isn't moving. 

You know the value of social media, but aren't sure what to post. Just this morning you saw a photo of someone's eye makeup get 5,001 likes, while your thoughtful shares go unnoticed. 

You're drowning in a sea of information. Though Google has an answer for everything, sometimes it's just too much. You just want a clear action plan of what needs to be done to get results.

You have great stories to tell, but feel lost about how to package them into a cohesive brand. You want to build a brand that allows you to grow your blog just by being yourself. 

You want to learn the secret to earning a REAL salary through your blog. Free trips and hotel stays are nice, but your local grocery store doesn't accept swag as payment.

What would your life look like if you could...


Easily Grow Your Traffic

Stand out and become the go-to expert in your niche, leading to tens of thousands of (or hundreds of thousands) of dedicated readers each month eating up your content.


Be your own

Imagine not having to set an alarm and taking trips without needing to request off for vacation. In fact, you can even get paid for your travels (it's NOT too good to be true, I promise).


Streamline your Systems

Finding your ideal workflow and cutting down your screen time. No nights and weekends for you! You focus on the tasks that bring results and reap the rewards of a comfortable salary and free time.


Work from Anywhere

Working from home, from Italy or anywhere else you can travel with a laptop, while also paying off your debt and enjoying time freedom (instead of the daily grind.)

Hi, I'm Jessie

Your fairy blog-mother,
here to help you make your profitable blog dreams a reality

travel blog featured logos

I started blogging in 2011, and since then have grown a profitable (and fun!) business that allows me to travel the world -- and get paid doing it. 

I'm not talking just free trips here. I'm talking actual money that allows me to earn a viable income doing what I love. 

I've worked with renowned brands like Qantas Airways, Mastercard, South African Tourism, Marriott and I've been featured in top publications like USA TODAY, CNN, Business Insider and AOL Travel. I've even spoken at notable conferences like TBEX, the Women In Travel Summit, Women's Travel Fest and TravelCon.

Additionally, since 2014 I’ve been coaching new and seasoned bloggers -- both those just starting out and those who've been at it for awhile. My students aren't just travel bloggers either; I've had students blogging about vegan eating, basketball, sewing, psychology, self help and beyond.


You Don't Need
To Be A

When I started my blog I had absolutely no following on the internet, or anywhere else for that matter. I didn't even have an Instagram account!


You Don't Need
A Ton Of Startup Money

Blogging has very little overhead costs. Especially in the beginning it's more about investing time than money. In fact, you can start blogging today for $0!


No Writing or Photography skills needed

While writing and photography skills help, if you have an interesting story to tell and a unique voice, these talents aren't essential.


You Don't Have
To Quit
Your Job

I waitressed while building my blog until it made enough money that I felt comfortable leaving my serving gig. Blogging can totally be your side hustle.

Look, you could spend months weeding through all the contrasting information on the internet and still have no idea where to begin. Instead, my approach is simple. I take principles that have worked for myself and my close blogger peers, and apply these to your brand.

No brand yet? No problem! I'll work with you to build your blog from the ground up, making sure you're set up for success from the start. Once you have your foundation, it'll be much easier to implement the action steps you'll walk away with from our time together.

No more guessing. No more feeling helpless.
No more confusion.


travel blogging consultation

I have done many of Jessie’s courses over the year so it was a pleasure to meet her in person.

We did an audit of my site and I was able to ask her all of the burning questions that I had. It was incredibly valuable. I walked away with a better idea about how I should be focusing my time and I learned tools that I can use to improve my SEO. She is a leader in the travel blogging world, so she is the perfect person to go to for help and advice.

This session was really a game-changer for me!

As a new blogger, there are so many things you have to learn by doing. You pick a theme that you find appealing, you stumble through customizing it, you figure out how to use WordPress through trial and error. And your friends and family rave about how great your website looks – but (most likely) they don’t know anything about the site structure needed to have a successful blog.

During my time with Jessie, I decided to have her critique my site structure. I walked away from the session with a ton of actionable insights. I immediately put these to use and was motivated to take further steps in improving my site, beyond her tips.

After all was said and done, I ended up completely revamping my home page, creating a logo from scratch in Canva, and changing my color scheme to be cohesive with my logo branding colors. I also redid my menu and added dropdowns per Jessie’s advice that you want any blog post to be within two clicks of your home page.

This session was really a game-changer for me!

  • Defining your niche
  • Crafting a blogging road map (we'll write one together!)
  • Producing content for maximum reach
  • Creating a community with your readers
  • Increasing visibility in Google Search
  • Tools that maximize productivity

  • And more!

After the session, you'll be sent the recording to keep.

Additionally, you'll be added to my private Student Lounge to continue getting support as well as to collaborate and network with other students in my online blogging school.

In-Person Blog Consultation
(in NYC-only): $1,000

Similar to the one-on-one virtual consultation; however, with this option we’ll sit side-by-side working on your blog, going over your questions and troubleshooting any issues you may be experiencing. I’ll make sure your website is set up for optimal reach and success, not only telling you how to take your blog to the next level, but showing you. We'll even craft a blogging road map together, so you know exactly what next steps to take!

Includes up to 4 hours of in-person time, plus a 30-minute Zoom follow-up.
