Ad/Sponsorship Opportunities

The Life That Broke is a blog about expat life, travel, lifestyle and career written by a journalist with 15 years of experience. Writing isn’t my hobby — it’s my career. My writing has appeared in numerous print publications, including Weight Watchers and Jetstar magazines, and online at major web sites such as Travel + Leisure, CNN and USA Today. I have also blogged regularly for PsychologyToday and AOL.

The Life That Broke has been featured on major web sites such as AOL Travel, numerous popular travel blogs and on TV at TEN News for a story on the rising cost of living in Sydney.  In the My Published Work section, you can see some of the other sites for which I’ve done guest posts and interviews.

Audience and Reach

My audience includes current and future budget travelers and expats as well as burgeoning freelancers and career breakers, who I target in my column “Ask the Expat Freelancer.” Companies focusing on international and domestic travel, budget travel, women’s travel and freelance writing or location-independent lifestyles make good fits on The Life That Broke.
