About Me

Erin Donaldson

In the spirit of Kokopelli I am telling the story of life as it happens – one day at a time. Be sure to follow and check out my content on Steemit too! https://steemit.com/@openmindedtravel

Come along with me and learn about my journey as an Open Minded Traveler. On this blog I am going to bring you into my world as an expat, a single mom and a writer. Experience insights which will help you become a smarter, more savvy traveler.

My Mission

The mission of Open Minded Traveler, is to tell a story about discovering new places and their culture. We will invoke your senses. We will bring to life the spirit of Kokopelli, a traveler with a story. We will transport our readers to a different world where we break the boundaries of normal and take lifestyle travel to a new level.

This blog is dedicated to the traveler who views the world through an open mind. This is for the Open Minded Traveler who goes and sees the reality of Colombia and similar places.

Come explore places which enchant me in my wanderings. In the spirit of Kokopelli (who inspired the logo), I work to tell the story of my life and travels in Colombia through creativity, open minded philosophies and an artistic approach to blogging.

A Message to My Readers

As my first adventure in blogging, Open Minded Traveler is what allowed me to get my feet wet and experience the joy of writing. It taught me how to run and admin a website with social media pages. It has taught me how to create and manage a web presence and niche authority. Most importantly, it taught me the art of creating good web content.

2016 was a year of growth and self-discovery. I went through and created a brand, to fill a more specific niche, that local/regional readers could recognize and relate to and it resulted in PereiraCityGuide.com, my sister site, or should I call it my child site?

I discovered with PereiraCityGuide.com, that I was a little bit too limited. Which led to CoffeeAxisTravel.com – an extension and gap-filler for my other two pages.

Going forward with Open Minded Traveler I am now picking up the pace. After everything, I discovered that OpenMindedTraveler had built up a much bigger domain authority than the other two. Now, I am working the three into a more integrative unit that can send readers in the directions they most want and need according to interest.

Open Minded Traveler remains a blog that explores the world and tells a story about it.

Join me as I bring you new content and updates! I am out gathering fresh new content, travel perspectives, and information about life and travel in Colombia, for international readers.

Let’s go!
