#Blog4Trek: Become TrekAmerica’s Next Top Blogger and WIN a Holiday!


TrekAmerica has launched an amazing new competition to find the next big name in the blogging community. The winner will get to travel on one of our most popular tours; the two-week Westerner 2, including flights from the UK and a night in a hotel before and after the trip; and blog their way around the west of the USA, thanks to our in-van Wifi!

We have enlisted the help of some of the best travel and lifestyle writers around, who will form our official panel to help judge the competition. So if you think you have the gift of the gab, and can really tell a story through your blog, we want to hear from you!

The competition will be split into 3 stages, to really tease out the creativity in our bloggers. Here’s how to enter Stage 1:

Write around 300 words on ‘What you would pack for a weekend away’ – try and make your blog as creative and unique as possible… you can even use video if you want to! Then, tweet your blog’s link to @TrekAmerica or post the link to our Facebook page using the hashtag #Blog4Trek.

Once we have all the entries, the TrekAmerica team along with our trusty panel of judges will narrow the entrants down to our top 10 and then the competition will really start to heat up! If this sounds like the competition for you, then get your entries to us by 9th March, and you could be heading off to some of America’s most iconic cities and National Parks!

So without further ado, here is our esteemed panel of judges…

Monica Stott The Travel Hack

Travel Hack

Monica is the blogger behind The Travel Hack, a blog about her stylish adventures around the world. Monica began blogging in 2009 when she travelled through Asia and Australia for two years. The blog was a way to share her experience and keep her family and friends updated during the trip and it soon became one of the UK’s top travel blogs. She’s now a full time travel blogger and you’ll find her snapping photos and writing about her adventures from Iceland to Ireland and Canada to Cambodia.

Monica is taking her first TrekAmerica trip in April to the west coast of the USA and she can’t wait to see the Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park!

Rosie Tapping – A Rosie Outlook

Rosie Outlook

Rosie started blogging in 2010 and writes a lifestyle and fashion blog where she shares everything from travels, holidays, high street outfits and her health and fitness journey to posting recipes, beauty reviews, photography, and lots of pictures of her very cute dog, Bodhi!

She also loves to share photos of the area she lives in (near Bournemouth, with her fiancé, Tom) and includes day trips, eating out and weekends away; her and her fiancé have a VW Transporter with a comfy bed in the back so they do a lot of camping and exploring of the British Isles!

Victoria Magrath – In The Frow


Victoria started Inthefrow in October 2012 after feeling as though she had something to add to the blogging world. She had a huge love for watching Youtube videos and reading fashion and beauty blogs, so decided to start writing about the things that she loved. At first, her blog was predominantly beauty focused, but after a few months she started to include fashion items and trends that she loved, so that now she creates a mixture of outfits and beauty in her posts.

As well as working with TrekAmerica, some of Victoria’s greatest moments of the past year include winning Company Magazine’s ‘Personal Style Blogger Newcomer Award’ in June 2013 and also having the opportunity to model for some amazing brands such as JadedLdn, Lavish Alice, Boohoo and Cage City. Victoria’s blog has gone from a hobby to a passion and her first 18 months has seen some incredible achievements.

So what are you waiting for? Get writing, and send us your links using #Blog4Trek by 9th March 2014, and look out for more from us and our panellists on how to create a fantastic blog.
