The Broke Backpacker

The Broke Backpacker is a popular blog for backpackers and anyone who is passionate about travelling on a shoestring.

The owner had set up the WordPress blog himself, and commissioned Barn2 Media to finish everything off and make it look really professional. We established that this WordPress blog was using the Simplemag theme, and just needed setting up in a way that made the best possible use of the theme. We made a range of improvements to transform the website without having to start from scratch.

Our Solution

  • WordPress blog redesign using the Simplemag theme
  • WordPress theme customisations to meet the client’s exact requirements
  • Custom WordPress plugin development to create a bespoke Related Posts plugin
  • Improved the appearance of the blog by adding a default featured image, ensuring that no blog posts are missing an image
  • Advice on the best content strategy for the site and how to use WordPress to create different types of content
  • SEO advice and support
