Like most travel writers, The Vacation Gals really enjoy seeing the world and sharing our vacations with our friends and families. Even more, we thrive on helping make travel experiences manageable for our readers, through destination overviews, travel tips, gear reviews, and vacation advice.
It’s a thrill, therefore, to be finalists in the 2010 Bloggies — the 10th annual Weblog Awards. It’s especially exciting since TheVacationGals.com is a relatively new blog for us; though we’ve collaborated on other projects before, this website only launched in September 2009. The category we’re nominated in is “Best Travel Weblog” and we’re proud to be in such good company. Other finalists are Go Backpacking, Everything Everywhere, A Traveler’s Library, and Camels & Chocolate.
There are so many fantastic travel blogs out there, from hilarious (TravelSavvyMom) to high-end (Ciao Bambino) to some aimed at living meaningfully (Global Citizen Project), just to name a few. All are worthy of note, please give them a look: There is some bit of wisdom to be gained from each well-written travel blog out there.
And in terms of the finalists for the 2010 Bloggies, please go vote for your favorite. All of us share the passion for seeing the world and expanding readers’ knowledge. No matter where our travels take us, we hope the experiences lead to richer, happier lives for all of us.
