Jayme Lamm from The Blonde Side mainly covers three niches in her writings: sports + travel + fitness. The travel portion of her writings came because of how often she found herself on the road and in hotels covering so many sporting events across the country and eventually, she was able to start doing hotel reviews, work with tourism boards and PR agencies to create trips centered around sports, and some just to explore the goodness throughout the world.
Most of Jayme’s travel writings can be found on GirlsGetaway.com where she mainly focuses on adventure travel, single and solo travel, breweries and wineries (job perks!), restaurant reviews, spas and wellness routines and much more.
