SOME OF MY TRAVEL ARTICLES

I really began to take travel writing seriously twelve years ago, just before I bought my first dSLR camera. In January 2012, I earned my membership in the Travel Media Association of Canada with my growing portfolio of published articles and images.

Terri Fogarty of Europe Up Close says: ...
an excellent writer...Julie Ferguson...consistently gets more comments on her articles than many of our other authors and she is a savvy user of social media to promote her articles [and her clients]. March 2016
