Welcome to my new blog design!
From the time I began traveling, I have jotted in journals and kept photo logs of my travel adventures. I have wanted to share my travels and the deals that I find which make all of it possible for a long time.
My first attempt at writing for a blog was a guest post for TheMrPickles which actually turned into a seven part mini-series! Last June, I joined up with Carol at Southern Travel Girl and began writing on a more full time basis. With the encouragement of the folks at First2Board and TheMrPickles, I have now set up my own site – Carolina Travel Girl – focusing a little more on my South Carolina heritage as well as renewing my commitment to the First2Board Community.
Yes, when First2Board first began, there was the hope that we could have the site and its associated blogs be able to function without the customary credit card sign ups. But we soon learned that in order to pay the hosting fees, that revenue was very important. I will be quite honest and tell you that yes, I do receive a commisision from credit card sign ups and affiliate links and appreciate your support in that way.
As we head into Spring and another year of travel, I hope that you will join me as I explore the world and discover new tips to help me accomplish my own travel dreams. I also hope that you will find something along the way that inspires you to visit new places yourself. And if you are only joining from the comfort of your home, I hope that you will enjoy seeing the world through my eyes.
What do you think of the new logo design?
Wishing you all the best on this new endeavor. Really interesting to read about your history as a guest blogger, and now this new blog as well. I really enjoy the details you put into your trip reports; you stop and smell the roses (literally sometimes) and show things a little off the beaten path.
Thanks so much Sam!
