“It’s a no-brainer; you need to get your database. There is nothing else out there like it.

Before Gabi and the database, I was not pitching anywhere near as often, nor anywhere near as seriously. It would take me hours of research to find 2-3 outlets to pitch. Right now, I have 10 assignments — a year ago, if I could place one article in 6 months that would be amazing.”

“These seem like great, easy-to-pitch pieces that don’t necessarily always require a ton of prior travel. There are so many awesome indie travel magazines out there! I had no idea that so many of them were looking for first person narratives as features!

Before the database, I had no idea there were so many AAA-affiliated magazines. So many of them have “Weekender” type sections with small to larger itineraries for locations both within and outside of the specific magazine’s area of focus.

These seem like awesome opportunities to share the communities I know well with a variety of different geographic audiences!

And even though I love writing about local food and craft beer, it never occurred to me to pitch that type of “travel” content to a magazine like bon appetit, Lucky Peach, or one of the edible city-specific magazines.

Duh. I also noticed quite a few publications that had “Here and Now” and “What’s Hot” type sections specific to travel trends or timely issues.

These seem like great, easy-to-pitch pieces that don’t necessarily always require a ton of prior travel.

There are so many wonderful magazines in the database that I can’t wait to keep digging and start thinking through how their sections and themes could be good fits for what I’m already doing.

Thanks so much!”
