© One woman quit her job in marketing to change careers and decided to try to earn money blogging. Colleen Lanin founded TravelMamas.com, combining her love of writing with her passion for travel. She came up with the idea for the blog after becoming a mom and looking for travel resources geared for travelers with young children.
She found that there was almost nothing available at the time, so she started asking friends and family for their advice instead. After a few family trips, she began typing up the tips she gathered from her experience and from fellow parents and pretty soon she realized that she had written a lot of material. She launched the blog as a way to build up her reputation as a travel writer and eventually hopes to publish a book on the subject as well.
