Luxury Family Travel and More – Katie Dillon
I am a freelance lifestyle and luxury travel writer who loves mother-daughter trips, Pinterest, my husband’s sense of humor, a nice glass of wine and one very needy pitbull mix. Living at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong spoiled me for life so I do my best to regularly check in to Four Seasons and other luxury properties around the globe. When not on the road, we are at home in seaside La Jolla, CA (an affluent community in San Diego).
Where I Currently Write
- Have Family Will Travel, by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts (I lived at the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong for 5 years!)
- Taste by Four Seasons
- 10Best/Travel Media Group at USA TODAY (I am the San Diego Local Expert)
- Your North County (A site dedicated to North County San Diego)
- Four Seasons Magazine
- Install-It-Direct (A San Diego home and garden blog)
The Book: Flying With Kids
As an expat, I had to fly my daughter transpacific multiple times per year. I’ve included every tip I have, gear recommendations, how to handle jet lag and much more in Flying with Kids.
I list of television and print appearances are available on the La Jolla Mom Media Page and on my Pinterest board here:

Work With Me
Monthly Blog Sponsorships
I am now accepting monthly blog sponsorships. These include:
- A blog post about the sponsor (photos will need to be provided).
- A 300×200 or 250×250 ad for the entire month.
- Social media sharing of the blog post and sponsorship announcement through my extensive network (31,000 Twitter, 16,400 Pinterest, 4100 Facebook, 2100 Instagram which will increase the sponsor’s following, too).
Otherwise, email details and I will let you know if your products or services are a good fit. Unfortunately, due to extremely high email volume, I can’t respond to all uncompensated pitches. Please consider the following prior to pitching.
- All advertising uses nofollow links.
- I do not accept unsolicited blog posts.
- I do giveaways of value over $250 unless it is a gift card.
- Sponsored post rate starts at $400.
Advertising space is now available in 125×125 and 468×60 (below select posts). Please contact me for other sizes and rates.
I love to work on relevant multi-post campaigns! Each post is shared on social media.
