Blogger Profile: Trish Friesen

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Over the years I have profiled bloggers from the Northwest Territories to the Fraser Valley, anyone that interests me and that I hope will interest you as well. A few years ago I started asking a standard set of questions and I’ve sent these out to a few local bloggers for this week’s series. Click, share, explore, and enjoy.

How long has your blog been around?
Since December of 2009.

What is your role?
Founder, editor and principal blogger.

What does your site do/what is it about
Trip Styler is a Vancouver-based travel lifestyle publication whisking readers away to close-by and far-off lands three times weekly {M, W, F}. Think of us as your everyday beach-read, even when you’re sitting at your desk {sans sunglasses} under fluorescent lighting! In a week, we’re as likely to dish on Palm Springs’ hottest hotels as we are to talk about bagging the best beach tote.

What can people see, read, and do when visiting your site?
We’re all about the stylish travel lifestyle {which doesn’t always equate to luxe $$$} and the best way to see, wear it, shop it and eat it whether you’re traveling to Vancouver Island, Thailand or Paris.

Trish was recently featured in Expedia’s “Find Your Calling” campaign.

Why do you blog?
I never got out of the teen diary phase. Just kidding; ok, not really. Seriously though, after sharpening my teeth in Vancouver’s marketing scene and traveling my face off at every available opportunity, I felt compelled to encourage people to try out different types of travel {ie – trip styles} from camping to urban to beach to adventure. There’s a time and a place for every trip style which can encourage, inspire, replenish, educate and transform.

What is the ultimate goal for your site, how would you like to see it grow?
Goal: To remind aspiring jetsetters it’s possible to tread in Jimmy Choo-like destinations for the price of TOMS, and to try different trip styles to keep life fresh.

Growth: As far as growth, I have a solid international readership, but I’d love for more Vancouverites to fly the friendly skies with us.

    We love TripStyler in our house. The site reminds me of all the different types of trips we can take. Whenever I feel stuck in a rut I head on over. Trish has also inspired me to pack a whole lot less, while still looking great wherever I go. I’m still working on that one.
