Writing a blog can certainly be risky.  From publishing your very first post to taking the leap to go full-time, blogging is sometimes a nerve-wracking venture.  Some Mediavine publishers add a whole other layer of risk — our travel bloggers who roam the world and share their experiences (and gorgeous pics) on their sites.  We’ve talked to a few of them in the past, like Jeremy Jones of Living the Dream RTW, solo female traveler Kristin Addis from Be My Travel Muse and Andrzej Ejmont’s family of travelers at Wanderlust Storytellers. Today we’re excited to add another to this adventurous mix.  Meet Amanda Williams of A Dangerous Business, a travel publisher who took the plunge into blogging full time.

We make no secret of the fact that balance is important to Mediavine. It’s one of our founding principles —make sure ads are worth the space they’re taking, balancing user experience and income in a way that’s right for you and your readers. Balance is also important to how we make up our teams here. We recently shared a post about how we handle People Operations and I pretty much love shouting from the rooftops that our tech company is bucking stereotypes with a team that’s more than 50% female.
