They might not have the glamor or the glitz of the Golden Globes or the Academy Awards, but for bloggers, being a Weblog Awards finalist is just as big a deal.
The Weblog Awards or ‘bloggies’ as they are more commonly known as, have been running since 2001. Featuring numerous categories, covering everything from politics to food and everything in between, the ‘bloggies’ are chance for the blogging comunity to recognize their peers.
But it’s only in the last few years that travel blogs have had their own category.
This year’s finalist are…
The Vacation Gals (Expert advice on family travel, girlfriend getaways, and romantic escapes)
Hole in the Donut (Discovering the World, One Culture at a Time)
Camels & Chocolate (Tales from a Travel Addict)
My Itchy Travel Feet (A Baby Boomer’s Guide to Travel)
Check them out and then vote on the one that you feel should receive the 2011 Travel Blog Bloggie.
But don’t stop there. Check out all the other interesting categories. I guarantee you’ll discover not only some old favorite blogs but also some new ones to enjoy.
