Leslie Harvey is a family travel blogger and freelance writer. Her site, Trips With Tykes, chronicles the joys and challenges of family travel with little ones. Her work focuses on identifying and overcoming the little logistical challenges of travel with young children that make so many families shy away from it before they even begin. Her travel passions include all things involving planes and air travel, Disney, snow skiing, and national parks. She is currently a brand ambassador for Southwest Airlines.
Leslie’s blogging experiences led her to discover Pinterest many years ago, and it was a match made in heaven. She has made it her mission to educate bloggers and brands about the platform’s versatility for numerous niches beyond just recipes and DIY. Leslie now provides Pinterest consulting services for brands and fellow bloggers in the travel and lifestyle spaces.
After teaching herself CSS and HTML, Kuleen set her “sites” on mastering SEO. She took courses online, and read the two-inch thick book, Art of SEO, in her spare time.
She practiced her new SEO skills on her own site and then started helping out her blogger friends. With their encouragement (okay, with their pestering) she decided to open A Blogger’s Best Friend.
It’s important to Kuleen that you never say “I don’t know what the SEO person did on my site” when referring to her work. She’ll work with you no matter what your level of SEO knowledge to make sure you understand the services she provides.
