Two travel articles!

March 31, 2010

I’ve recently been trying my hand at travel writing – all the while staying stationary. Here are excerpts from two travel articles, recently published on other sites.

A Girl’s Travel Guide to Charlottetown

  • Charlottetown is the capital city of Prince Edward Island, Canada’s smallest province. Nestled into Canada’s rugged east coast, PEI is a lush, green island, best known for being the home of Canada’s Confederation, gorgeous red sand beaches, rolling potato fields, and Anne of Green Gables… (Continue reading.)

10 UK Hostels That Are Far From “Hostile”

  • I’m desperate to take a jaunt over to the UK for a couple months after I graduate from college next year. When I started my travel planning, I quickly realized staying in hotels would simply not be an option for me, as my wallet would be stretched to the limit anyway… (Continue reading.) (Published at TalentEgg LAUNCH.)

I’ve got two more blog posts published at LAUNCH.

A new post of mine has been published at the myUsearch blog. I really enjoyed writing this article. I included a lot of my own personal experiences and it was just nice to write a good old-fashioned college article again. Click the link below to give it a read:

10 Tips For College Freshmen

Also, WordPress (which I usually strive to recommend to other bloggers as a great place to host a blog) has deactivated Kill Jill Goes To College because they seem to think the blog is meant for selling affiliate links and promoting other websites.

Gee. Last year, Kill Jill was named Blog of the Day by WordPress. Now it’s deactivated. How ironic.

So, if someone at WordPress is reading this post, I ask that you reinstate Kill Jill. I’m a poor college student who, yes, makes a few bucks from some small ads. I’ve been getting a lot of visitors lately because of a giveaway I’m doing with HP. That’s probably why your people think I’m up to no good. I ask you to reactivate my blog because I did nothing wrong. Thanks.

I made a new post on my blog at Macleans OnCampus. It’s another humor post. I seem to be doing a lot of those these days. But it’s good, I enjoy writing them.

This one is called “10 Commandments of the Summer Job”. Enjoy!

Also, I decided to remove the “Published” page from this blog. I haven’t updated it in ages. Besides, I post all my recently published stuff on here anyway. So, it’s not a big deal.

A few weeks ago, I finally added some content to the new-and-improved version of Jillianne-Hamilton.com. Today, I added a Testimonials page (under Misc.). I mostly added it for fun but if I ever get any more good quotes that say something about me, I’ll be sure to add them.

I also wrote a new post for the myUsearch blog: 12 Tips For Finding and Applying For Scholarships.

I did a guest post (for the myUsearch blog) for WeCompareBooks.com (or, more specifically, their blog). Check it out if you wanna.

Speaking of myUsearch, I’ve accepted the position of summer intern for the website. I’ll be doing odd jobs, helping out with site traffic and that kinda stuff. I’ll continue writing a few articles over the summer too. But it’ll be something else to add to ye olde résumé.

So, I’m not 100% up-to-date on posting my articles that I did for Truro Daily. But I’ll get those posted. Eventually.

Anyway, my 2 newest posts for the myUsearch blog were published on April 27th and April 30th.
