It’s Monday and I’ve got some exciting updates to announce that are coming to Well Traveled Mile. Along with several other small design changes you may see over the next week I’ve decided to open the door to another blogger to write about miles and points at Well Traveled Mile.

The newly added blog is called The Points Guru and you can check it out here.

The goal is to add a new perspective as well as exciting and valuable miles and points resources. Ajay Vangapaty has been a contributing writer for the past few months on Well Traveled Mile, but now he will be sharing his points and miles advice on his own blog as The Points Guru which will be new section of

Ajay’s knowledge on miles and points is top-notch and I feel he will add a lot of value with the posts he writes.

What’s changing?

Similar to other blogging networks, I’ve made it so that all new posts from The Points Guru will be published straight to the front page of the Well Traveled Mile homepage. You will not need to go to multiple places to get the latest posts—just check the front page.

You’ll also be able to navigate back-and-forth between blogs through the links on each blogs main menu.

Will more new blogs be joining Well Traveled Mile?

I’m considering to add several new blogs to the site to offer more valuable perspectives on points and miles, but also traveling in general.

If you think that you could be a good fit and are interested in writing a blog on Well Traveled Mile, then let’s talk! Send me a message at for more information. I’ll be adding a page with more info about this shortly as well.
