PackThePJs is a collaborative family and travel blog that focuses on our individual strengths and interests. We are a family group who predominantly write about days out, holidays, cruises, and adventures … Mum (Tracey) is a professional writer/editor with a passion for travel; Dad (Huw) is a respected technology and science writer; son and daughter are adventurous children with keen interests in gaming, gadgets and making videos; we also have two dogs and two cats, but their writing style isn’t up to scratch!
PackThePJs covers family days out, events, land and sea-based holidays, our pets, and activities at home. However, our blog has an additional four sections, all of which are contained within the PackThePJs branding:
KidzCruises, established in 2015, covers family cruise vacations – news of brand new and refurbished ships, activities and features on board for families and children, kids clubs, etc.
HuwKnew is Huw’s ‘dad’ space to talk about the geeky stuff that he loves. Gadgets, advances in science and technology, distilleries … Who knows what will turn up next on his page!
BestCuppa, our oldest website dating back to 2005, is all about a family addiction – coffee shops! Here, as part of PackThePJs we are starting afresh with new reviews of coffee shops, talking about coffee shops, and sampling coffee shops and their products 🙂
KidzPlay is the page run by our children. Here you’ll find reviews of days out, events and holidays as seen through the eyes of an 8 and 10 year old. They also produce short ‘Let’s Play’ gaming videos, hosted on YouTube. This page is closely monitored and edited by Huw and Tracey (responsible, protective parents),
How Can We Work Together?
Firstly, we have a Media Pack that auto-updates monthly. To view it, please click here.
We strive to write engaging, exciting posts that are of interest to our main readership, namely UK-based parents aged 25-45. However, KidzPlay, BestCuppa and HuwKnew? are bringing new traffic to the website of all ages, gender, and geographical locations! It is a very exciting time for PackThePJs as we are growing very quickly.
We are happy to be contacted about relevant campaigns that we can assist you with. This could be a sponsored (no follow, fully disclosed) post, competition/giveaway, product review – or a combination of all of these, on a one-off or ongoing basis. We are actively seeking Brand Ambassador relationships.
As a family travel blog, we are always happy to consider trips, tickets, invitations (often in lieu of payment) in return for a fully comprehensive written review, with original photography and often with video blog add-ons made by the children.
Reviews, posts and giveaways are promoted through all of our social media channels. We are active on all major social media platforms, especially twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube. We have over 7,000 followers across all platforms (January 2017).
Please do get in touch if we can be of assistance to you. We can be contacted via any of our social media channels, via our Contact Us form, or via email at:
