Who am I?
I’m Aurelia Teslaru, the writer and content creator behind Daily Travel Pill. My story as a travel blogger and content creator began about 4 years ago. 250 blog posts later, Daily Travel Pill is one of the biggest travel blogs worldwide.
I grew from 0 to 150,000 monthly page-views and more than 13,000 email subscribers. My blog is the reason why I had the chance to visit destinations such as China, Lapland, Slovenia, and many others. But to get here wasn’t easy.
It took 1000’s of hours of testing and learning, countless sleepless nights, and a lot of frustration. However, over the years I managed to find the recipe for success in the travel blogging industry and now I’m here to share it with you together with Dan, my travel partner, photographer, and tech guru.
This one-on-one mentorship program will combine my knowledge about content creation, SEO, and monetization with Dan’s knowledge about speed optimization and other technical stuff.
Who is Dan?
Hi, I’m Dan Moldovan and I’m a programmer. I have more than 10 years of experience in programming and I’m here to make your life easier.
Even though I’m passionate about travel, my biggest passion is programming. Everything related to technology excites me and I am here to make sure that the tech part of blogging won’t keep you from starting a travel blog.
I’ll help you to properly set up your website, choose your hosting, install a responsive theme, manage your plug-ins, and much more! If you feel that something’s not working, I’m your man!
