Welcome to templeseeker – the solo female travel blog with a focus on cultural travel! Templeseeker offers several opportunities for businesses to advertise their products and services.

Templeseeker – Work with Me!

I sometimes welcome the odd travel guest post from fellow bloggers who I know and have a working relationship. For those I do not know or work with directly, all advertising and guest blogging is a paid service. All requests are taken via Fiverr and not by email. Thank you for understanding.

Sponsored Posts – Online Collaboration

Templeseeker now offers sponsored posts to travel agencies, tour operators and other companies within the industry. Sponsored posts are well received by readers and a link in an article has been proven to be much more effective than a display ad.

All businesses who want to apply for a sponsored post will first need to get their business approved for advertising by our editor Amy Trumpeter.  If you write the article, the copy will also need to be approved.

Please note that all sponsored links will be ‘no-follow’ according to Google’s guidelines.

You write the article: $150

I write the article $250

What I am offering to Hotels and Hostels as a Media Package

In return for accommodation (5 nights) in your Hotel, lodge or hostel, I am offering the following package….

  • Full hotel or hostel review of 1000 words published
  • Tweet (to over 5000 followers), Facebook Post and Instagram images of your accommodation daily during my stay.
  • I follow/like all of your social media accounts for your hotel or hostel.
  • Post permanently in the ‘accommodation’ section of my blog.

In towns and cities, I am specifically looking for accommodation that has an exciting and friendly atmosphere and central location.  I love Churches, temples, mosques and old town architecture.

In rural and rainforest settings, I am looking for sustainable hotels and eco-lodges with access to wildlife (responsible tourism). As a trained Geography teacher, sustainability and a use of renewable energy are important to me.

Information for Sponsoring Hotels

As a professional travel blogger, I always share the following information about what I am looking for with my sponsors…

  • The accommodation must be suitable for backpackers and travellers in their mid 30s.
  • It must have free WIFI for blogging and social media.
  • I am an eco-conscious travel blogger, so I will be interested to hear how your accommodation in green and sustainable.
  • Ideally your accommodation will be near a destination with historical and religious significance – Churches, Temples, castles and Old Towns are right up my street!

Terms and Conditions of Media Coverage

I also agree to sponsored accommodation under the following terms…

  • I will declare on my blog that the article is a sponsored post, so that my followers are aware of my honesty and transparency.
  • I will always blog and tweet honestly, even when accommodation is free, because my readers value and trust my opinions.
  • Social media promotion will be daily during the trip and agreed articles will be published within 7 days of the stay, but usually, during the stay itself!
