In an effort at shameless self-promotion I’d like to let you know about the places that Heather on her travels has recently been featured around the Blogsphere.
I’ve been a regular reader of Monna’s blog Teacher Meets World for a while now and we’ve exchanged guest posts here and here. Monna’s recently launched a new blog called Slow Blogs, celebrating blogs that are well-written, authentic and not overly commercial. I was honoured to be featured on the site this week here. It’s always nice to know that someone is reading and appreciating those random ramblings that I throw out into the blogsphere – thanks for your kind words Monna!
On an artistic note, one of my photos of autumn conkers was featured on A Life Less Ordinary, another site featured on Monna’s Slow Blog. The theme of the post was the Changing Seasons and there were some beautiful photos to mark the onset of Autumn and in one case (from Australia) Spring. Photography is one thing I’ve really grown to love since I’ve been blogging and an area I’d like to develop further – you can see all my photos on my Flickr site.
You should also check out my post on Family Fun in Valencia over at Galavanting, a web magazine focussing on travel for women. Their November magazine is just published with features on antique hunting in France, a day trip to a Tuscan wine town and a trek in Nepal with bed bugs thrown in. I’m hoping to do some more writing for Galavanting in the future – I’ll let you know when.
Thanks to Karen at Europe a la Carte for featuring my post on An Artistic Lunch at the V & A in her November Blog Carnival. I also enjoyed reading the other posts featured on sightseeing in Amsterdam, things to do in the Oberpfalz region of Germany and my mouth was watering over the Michelin starred meal in Luxembourg. Europe a la Carte is full of tips and destination information for travellers looking for the authentic Europe on a modest budget (I guess that would be me then) and the blog has expanded over the last few months as Karen has invited other writers onto her site. I’ll soon be joining the blogging team at Europe a la Carte and will be posting weekly on Thursdays – look out for my first post this Thursday 6 November.
I’m really excited with this development of writing for other sites as well as my own blog. I’m planning to keep my own blog for travel stories that are more detailed and personal but my posts on other sites are likely to be of broader interest. I’ll be sure to give you a regular round-up of where you can see my postings elsewhere on the web.
Thanks to Claudio.ar for the photo on Flickr
