My origins in web development came from maintaining my travel blog. I did a fair amount of travelling, but it quickly became difficult to keep track of all the places I had been to, and organize it efficiently and in one place.

That’s why I created Wander: A WordPress plugin designed to help travel bloggers manage their travel blogs efficiently and effectively.
With a behind the scenes management page, users are able to easily manage a few different options.
First and foremost, their current location. If you’re an avid travel blogger, chances are you move around a lot and want to keep everyone updated on your current location. With a “choose once, display everywhere” approach, user’s are able to pick a city and country, and display it with a shortcode in their website. That’s exactly how I’m able to tell you that I’m currently in Toronto, Canada right now.
