I’m grateful that some of my readers this week are brand-new to Jetsetter’s Homestead. Some of you discovered this page because of the ongoing Lyft $1,000 referral saga. Others have visited because I’m a featured blogger on BoardingArea (Prior2Boarding‘s sister site) this week. However you got here – welcome! I’d like to give you a quick tour around the Homestead for Throwback Thursday.
Some of my most popular posts have been a happy accident. My all-time most-viewed article is my summation of accidentally tumbling down the rabbit hole of the manufactured spending world. While I still can’t tell a Redbird from a Vanilla Bluebird named Kate, I enjoyed learning about it as much as I enjoyed sharing it with my readers.
My writings on Uber seem to draw regular traffic. I decided to try driving for UberX on a whim and since have written several articles on the service ranging from Uber secrets and ways passengers can cheat Uber to pieces about Uber’s recent rate cuts (and corresponding drop in driver earnings). I even shared my tips for New Year’s Eve – and then came back to reflect on the night from a driver perspective. (To sum it up – “never again!!!”)
But the reality is, my life doesn’t revolve around ridesharing or credit cards. I spend my weeks slogging through airports as a management consultant, something I’ve done for many years. As such, I write about everything from trade shows to seat assignments (including the dreaded middle seat) to weather delays. I try to review hotels (although I’m woefully behind!) and I’m not afraid to share my own travel statistics.
In my spare time, I love cruises (from a quickie weekender to Mexico all the way to a grand Indonesian adventure on a luxury line). I enjoy cooking and sharing my recipes (from winner chili to s’mores bars), scoping out lifestyle trends, and trying to get enough sleep each night!
I write about what I feel like writing about, which is very often what’s on my mind whether it’s the latest episode of The Bachelor or the person who threw trash at me in the airport. While I like earning points and miles, I’m definitely not spending too much time obsessing about them. I like to travel to places like New Orleans, Napa, and Las Vegas
