I’m very honored to have one of my first followers of this podcast on the show today. Portia Smith is a travel blogger, wife and mom to two beautiful girls. She is the creator of the blog Obsessed by Portia, which is all about family, couple, and girlfriend travel, and always offers tips and resources. In this episode, we talk about how moms (like us) should engage in more solo travel and ditch the kids AND the guilt. Portia also shares why she started a blog, how she’s grown it into a successful business, her tips for growing a social media following, how she cultivates sponsored trips, and much more.
What You'll Learn
About Portia Smith
Portia Smith was born into adventure. Growing up in a home that encouraged creative travel on a global level, she always had a hunger to explore. By the age of 22, she had marked over 20 countries on the map. Following college, she worked in the fashion industry for several years, married and had two children.
Writing has always been a consistent passion so she switched gears and started a family travel and lifestyle blog, Obsessed by Portia. Family travel is a main component of the blog, while integrating top trends and life hacks in beauty, fitness, fashion and motherhood. Portia lives in the Seattle area with her husband and 2 daughters (ages 6 & 8).
