Breaking news from the travel-publishing industry: Discovery’s Travel Channel has bought over Vagabondish. First it was World Hum, now this — both are great examples of small scale, personal projects making it big because of sheer dedication and quality content.
Mike Richard, who created the blog-turned-magazine about 18-months ago, will remain the editor-in-chief and the writers will continue writing but will now be part of a payment scheme (yaay for them!). As new things are in the pipeline for Vagabondish and expansion is inevitable, it might be a good time to pitch some stories to them.
Big congratulations from the Written Road team to Vagabondish!
