Hi there, I'm Debbie, and I travel often with my three kids (age 6, 5, and 2). Besides DeliciousBaby.com, I also develop an iOS travel app called TripDoc that helps you keep track of where you want to go on vacation. In addition:
Much mainstream media family travel coverage is written by parents of older kids or writers who do not travel. I offer the perspective and real-world tips that only a mom who travels frequently with her kids can offer.
Rankings and Awards
Our visitors are primarily from the US and Canada, though we also have significant traffic from the UK and Australia. DeliciousBaby is also syndicated through Newstex and BlogBurst, meaning that readers can view our articles via sources like LexisNexis, Amazon Kindle, and on other websites like SunTimes.com and USAToday.com.
If you are interested in advertising, please send me email at debbie AT deliciousbaby DOT com. Please note that I do not sell text link ads and all advertising is clearly labeled as such.
I am especially proud that my blog posts on Advantage Rent-A-Car's Unsafe Car Seats spawned two under-cover news investigations and significant changes in corporate policy.
I was interviewed for the NPR Radio Show Sound Focus. You can listen to the segment here:
I have moderated panels at two annual TBEX Conferences.
Print and Web
My articles and advice have appeared on many influential websites, including:
Passports With Purpose Fundraiser
Together with Pam Mandel of Nerds Eye View, Beth Whitman of Wanderlust and Lipstick, and Michelle Duffy of Wandermom, I organized an annual travel blogger's fundraiser that has blown past it's goal each year since it's inception in 2009. So far, we've raised $7,400 for Heifer International (year 1), 29k to build a school in Cambodia, and $64k to build an entire village in India, and $90k to build two schools in Zambia through a partnership with Room to Read.
Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX) '09
On July 26 2009, travel bloggers and established travel writers met in Chicago for TBEX'09, a conference I co-hosted with Kim Mance of Galavanting. Speakers included Wendy Perrin of Conde Nast Traveler, Jen Leo of the LA Times, Chris Elliott, Disney PR, and more. Topics included building a lively travel blog, working with PR, writing for print versus blogging, podcasting and more.
Who I've Worked With
I've worked with many popular brands. These have been fun projects for me because they show my readers a bit of the world through my eyes. Brands I've worked with include
Review Policy, Advertising and Commission Disclosure
I want readers to value my reviews and my opinion, so I am careful to recommend only products that I think are relevant and useful for traveling families.

I do not accept guest posts that are written with the goal of embedding text links to a product or service.
I accept banner ads and paid placements in a weekly deal post. All advertisements are clearly designated as ads. I may receive a commission whenever a visitor purchases an item or service using an ad or affiliates link from my site.
