Can I count on you?

For over two years now, I've spent 8-12 hours per working day on creating content, taking photos, learning how to write better, learning tech-skills, pitching, educating myself on marketing, and learning how to create great content so that I can provide easy and entertaining travel advice to you - awesome YOU. 

I've let you vote on where to send me in the world so that I can write guides for the places that you want to see. I answer all reader emails and comments because I love supporting you and your travels! 

I do this because guide books become quickly outdated, and leave out the real meat of travel: how to have a real, off the beaten path, cultural experience. I deliberately put myself in remote areas, figure it out by taking local transport, and I talk to locals to find the best spots that other tourists don't know about. Then, I tell you how you can do it too. You can avoid big group tours, save money and create value for yourself simply by reading my blog posts. 

But I wish I could do more. I wish I could spend more time creating even more ways to connect with you, and to help you travel better. Through this mutually beneficial service, we can finally do it! 

What I want to offer to you: 

Exclusive Q&A sessions
Hand-Written Monthly Post Cards
Private Skype Calls
Awesome, ethical, Etsy-worthy art, clothing, and jewelry items from around the world

Do you want more? Help me give you more!

Want a really cool item of clothing, jewelry, or art from a remote part of the world? I'll send it to you!
Each month, I'll let you know where in the world I am. I'll tell you what kind of awesome things are available, and I'll send you one, right to your front door, with a personalized card and photo of where I bought it and who made it.
I promise the items will be made ethically, ideally by hand, and always by an adult.
What kinds of things could this be?
A few pairs of harem pants from Thailand at a much better value than can be purchased in Western countries
Jewelry unique to where I'm visiting
A bag or purse that only you (or someone who has been to the same place I have!) will have
The list is endless, and for each country each month, you'll receive something new, chosen with your guidance. Appropriate for both males and females 
(price includes international shipping which, unfortunately, is expensive)
Pledge $250 or more per month
only 10 left
The same concept as above, but with much higher-ticket items
What kinds of things could this be?
A-hand made silver bracelet, pounded out and fired on the street by a Hmong minority tribe villager in China
An expert-level Nepalese Thangpa painting
The absolute coolest vintage jacket ever from a flea market in Berlin
One-of-a-kind hand-made decor for your home
The list is endless, and for each country each month, you'll receive something new, chosen with your guidance. (priced to include international shipping, which is unfortunately expensive)
Pledge $700 or more per month
Every single reward listed above, plus a large photo print, canvas, or even decorative mug, of your favorite photo I've taken that month, plus priority Flickr access to all of my photo galleries and private collection.
Goals
$68 of $200 per month
I mainly make my money freelance writing so that I can keep Be My Travel Muse as ad-free as possible. I have already started turning down 99% of the offers that come my way for ads, but sometimes, I do have to accept when the offer is lucrative. I still never recommend or advertise any companies that I don't use or love, but if I could say no to 100%, and write fewer freelance to save my hands and to devote more time to Be My Travel Muse, that would be ideal!
