WHO ARE YOU?
Hi. I’m Amy. Adventure-seeking, food-loving, 20-something.
You can find a more detailed answer on my about page.
WHY “TOOTHBRUSH TRAVELS?”
I’m pretty sure that naming a blog is harder than naming a baby.
But this blog is my baby, and you can read all about how Toothbrush Travels came to be here.
WHO DESIGNED YOUR BLOG LAYOUT?
You don’t know James but he is basically the genius who made my bloggy dreams come true.
You see, I knew exactly what I wanted my blog to look like but I have zero coding knowledge, so I drew what I wanted my blog to look like on paper, and then sent it to James who transformed my paper dreams into the web-space you see today. He’s a talented fella. You can contact him here.
Yes, but unfortunately not the gooey-in-the-middle delicious kind.
WHAT CAMERA DO YOU USE?
I use a Canon 70d.
It’s literally the most amazing camera ever and even though I’ve had it for years I still absolutely love taking pictures with it.
WHO TAKES YOUR PICTURES?
All of the pictures on my blog are taken by me, the only exception to this is if I am in them, in which case I have probably sweet talked S!
WHAT DO YOU USE TO EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
Photoshop CS5 and iPhoto.
But outside of cropping, watermarking and resizing images for web optimisation, I don’t really tend to edit my photos.
WHAT MADE YOU START BLOGGING?
I’d been reading blogs for years but didn’t know much about them until I started working as a social media manager for a bridal boutique. It was pure luck that landed me the role as I wasn’t qualified in the slightest and had next to no experience, but the owner saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself, and it turns out that was the job that sparked my career ambitions and internet love affair. It wasn’t until I found myself with plans to move to Thailand that I started blogging, but after one post became two, and then three and then thirty, I realised that I quite liked this writing lark and in May 2014 I launched Toothbrush Travels!
CAN I ADD YOU ON YOUR PERSONAL FACEBOOK?
Afraid not bambino. I’m pretty open when it comes to my life (excluding any details a person would need to stalk / rob me). But my personal Facebook is reserved for close friends and family. It’s not that I don’t like you, I’m sure you’re lovely. But I have a great deal of embarrassing statuses and photos on Facebook and I need to keep the friend count down so that when I’m super famous (lulz) I can worm out the mole who sold my embarrassing pictures to the local trash mag. The good news is I have a Facebook page that I update about 80% more regularly than my personal page AND I update stupid photos/videos of myself for your viewing pleasure. So really. You win.
You can find my Facebook page here.
CAN I USE YOUR CONTENT?
I work hard to create the content (both written and photographic) that you see here so if you’d like to use my content please do get in contact so that we can discuss this.
DO YOU WRITE SPONSORED CONTENT?
Sometimes, but I only ever work with companies and brands that I personally recommend or that would benefit my readers.
I’M A COMPANY AND I’D LIKE TO GET IN TOUCH.
HOW SHOULD I DO SO?
For all business enquiries shoot me a message at email@example.com
