Work With A Growing Cleveland-Based Travel & Lifestyle Blog
Local Love & Wanderlust shares experiences in travel and local exploration through thoughtful guides and content with an emphasis on life in Cleveland, the outdoors, and postcard-worthy destinations across the US. This page will go over some ways you can work with me.
My name is Jen and I’m the content creator and founder at Local Love and Wanderlust. I’m a photographer and designer living in a cute Cleveland neighborhood with my California-born husband Nathan. Half of the time I’m sharing my travels, the other half I’m sharing Cleveland-based content with the goal of showcasing Cleveland as a worthy travel destination. (and it is!)
My content is photo-focused and thoughtful with an eye for good design. It showcases local businesses, restaurants, experiences, and things to do in some of the most postcard-worthy destinations across the U.S., including Cleveland.
What makes my content stand apart?
I’m sharing attainable travel and lifestyle content using my strong background in photography, design, copy, and marketing with a keen eye for well-designed spaces, thoughtful storytelling, and eye-catching photography. The goal is for my readers to feel visually intrigued and well-informed while understanding they, too, can experience the travel and lifestyle content I share.
I am open to working with brands, businesses, and destinations that resonate with me and my blog content, especially local and small businesses. Here is some of the content I specialize in:
- Thoughtful & Curated Travel Guides and Itineraries. (Like my Epic New Orleans Travel Guide, or my post: San Francisco to Big Sur: Iconic Views, Things To Do + Huge 5-Day Itinerary.
- Fun and stylish hotel features. (Such as The Kinney in Venice Beach, The Schofield in Cleveland, or the unique CitizenM in NYC)
- First Looks & Behind The Scenes. (Check out my recent posts A Look Inside City Goods in Ohio City, and A Look Inside Urban Planting Cleveland’s New Tremont Shop)
Here are some of the topics I share content on now, or in the near future:
- Domestic travel
- Cleveland and Ohio-focused content
- Shopping for small and local brands and businesses
- Restaurants, especially photogenic and stylish ones (with good food, too!)
- Traveling for concerts
- Photography, photography inspiration, how-to, etc.
- Hiking, outdoors, exploration
- National Parks (and other cool state and regional parks)
- Hotels, especially beautifully styled hotels and boutique
- Occasional clean beauty and fashion
