10 Destinations For A Tight Budget

22nd February 2017

Finding both an affordable and exciting travel destination is becoming easier and more convenient with all of the resources available to us. I’ve traveled throughout the world and have found that any city can be traveled to on a budget, especially if you are familiar with the free resources available to you.

Traveling abroad and living in other countries has given me a new perspective on life, so if you’re not sure if you want to travel for a long duration of time, I think you should go for it! This opportunity will give you the option to learn a new language, make friends from around the world, and experience foods that you wouldn’t have otherwise tried.

If you’re trying to score the best travel deal and go as cheap as possible, travel to the destination of your choice during the time of year that the least amount of tourists are there. Hotels, flights, and pretty much everything will be much cheaper. Specials are common, and finding these special deals is usually easiest by finding travel deals on Groupon.

For example, it’s cheapest to travel to these cities during this particular season or months:

Venice, Italy | Winter

Los Angeles, California | January

Chicago | April

Beijing, China | June

London | May

Certain months and seasons will bring cheaper options as it’s off season. There are many perks to the off-season, too, so don’t let that deter you from traveling during that time!

How I Doubled My Pageviews In 1 Month

15th February 2017

2016 was an amazing year for FITnancials and going full-time on my blog drastically changed my pageviews. I went full-time in November, and as you can see in 2 months, I’ve doubled my pageviews exceeding over 60,000.

I’ve been blogging for awhile, but never took it seriously until November of 2016. Blogging was a hobby of mine and I usually only spent a couple hours a week on my blog. I quit my full-time job and decided to go full-time on FITnancials, and I’ve never been happier.

As a blogger, the learning never stops. Social media is constantly changing and it’s one of the more frustrating jobs I’ve had, but it’s a job I would never give up. I am my own boss at 23, get to travel and see my family whenever I want. I’ve been to 5 continents and counting and have been able to work anywhere in the world. The amount of money I make is constantly increasing and I don’t have to wait for that 1x per year to get my raise.

At the very bottom, I’ve included actual proof of my pageviews from Google Analytics.

Find out how I went from 12,000 page views to 30,000 thousand page views, and now at 60,000 page views per month! Continue reading
