Last Fall, I opened the doors at Go Backpacking to guest posts for the first time, and was truly surprised by the high degree of interest from fellow travelers.
One of the first people to respond was Danielle Alvarez, a then senior studying magazine journalism at Syracuse University.
Danielle has been a regular contributor here for the last 7 months, writing book and restaurant reviews, and sharing her experiences from a year abroad in Chile, Ecuador, and France. Hopefully you've been enjoying her stories as much as I have.
In my ongoing effort to build Go Backpacking into one of the web's top online travel blogs, I offered Danielle the opportunity to assist in an editorial capacity. I'm excited to share that she has accepted these new responsibilities.
In addition to writing about her favorite topics, travel and food, she will now be assisting with other content such as sponsored reviews, and more importantly, taking an active role in soliciting, editing, and scheduling guest contributions, as well as helping with promotional efforts (ie. social media).
Please join me in welcoming Danielle in her new role as Editor!
