  • Can someone remind me:

    1. why would any writer want to work for someone who doesn't value their work?

    2. why would any writer work for free for someone who is extraordinarily rich?
  • HuffPo's Travel editor can provide you with submission guidelines. In addition to not paying you for your stories, HP prohibits acceptance of discounted or free travel services, lodging, etc. by its freelance writers.
  • This reminds me there used to be a TV program about this crazy Ozzie - no, not numb nuts who died from the stingray sting - but another guy who wore long pants. He would be talking to the camera, then suddenly jump out of a helicopter to wrestle some animals to the earth. I wonder what happened to him?
  • Enjoy Perth, Bev. WA is my home state and Perth is so VERY FAR from everywhere, yet a fabulous destination in its own right. Hope you have time to stop over and look around.
  • Max,
    regarding your question and comment - HuffPo's travel section doesn't pay, but some writers seem to have made it pay anyway in terms of the traffic they managed to drive to their own site and attention they got that in turn led to remunerative projects elsewhere. I'm just thinking of one person I admire by the name of Natalie who wrote on Necker Island BVI, she has a great site of her own and should really start paywalling it at this point. Other people appearing on HP travel, however, I find more questionable both in their M.O. and worldview, thinking of someone who expounded on "Why WE Travel..". Sounded like a papal pronunciation on the one and only formula for Correct Travel.
  • Next week I'm off oin a train trip - the Indian Pacific train departing from Sydney and it choofs all the way across Australia to the other side and we end up in Perth, the capital city of the state of Western Australia.
  • I've been all around the World, but haven't been to Aruba yet. I hope to visit Aruba, via Holland America Line this January. Just returned from a Norwegian Coastal cruise with Hurtigruten: Check out my video here.

  • Regarding Max's comment, the right attitude and the right approach is the ONLY way to survive. When the recession hit, and many people with enviable jobs were being laid off, and a lot of my freelance gigs shut down, I considered my options, pulled up my bootstraps and started a new magazine of my own and doing pro-bono work for a non-competing luxury men's magazine on a to keep my foot in the high-end lifestyle and food worlds with the PR people to let them know I was not just out there but doing something. It is just now starting to pay off royally on both ends. Don't give up.
