The Travel Blogs Blog of the Month Award
Recognising some of the best travel bloggers out there
In creating this site and curating the many travel blogs that I want to share with the world, I read a lot of posts, I mean . . . a lot. Some are good, some are bad, some are awful but some are amazing and enjoyable.
My goal is to only pin posts to my interactive travel blog maps that really offer something to the reader, whether that is helpful information, a great story or even just a little entertainment, I want the readers to enjoy it.
As much of this site relies on sharing the work of others, I thought it would be nice to recognise those bloggers whose continued efforts and great writing skills become sources I know I can rely on. That is why I have started my blog of the month.
Each month a new blog will be given the much sought after blog award. If you would like to be considered, find out how at the bottom of this post page.
April 2018 – Nikoza
As you’ll probably gather by other blogs in this section, I love posts that tell the truth. There are plenty of travel blogs out there that will just tell you how wonderful everything is, even when it’s not, but you’ll only find the truth here. Of course, there are plenty of posts about wonderful places, but it is always refreshing to read honest thoughts of somewhere, a great example is this post about Bucharest! Run by Niki, the site is a travel and lifestyle blog, so there are some posts non-travel related, but it’s a really good mix. I have worked with Niki recently, writing a post for her site about 9 reasons you should visit Madrid and Niki has also written a guest post for The Travel Blogs too, a passionate piece about her home country, 19+1 places to visit in Greece. Head over and check out a few of her posts, I hope you’ll love them as much as I do.
March 2018 – Hangry By Nature
I love a blog that is both informative and great fun to read, and that is exactly what Hangry by Nature is. The self-proclaimed potty mouth author is Tina, who runs the blog with hubby and “badass content creator” Andy. The blog focuses on family travel, with a heavy dose of sarcasm and humour, and a goal to prove that life doesn’t end when you have kids, it is just the beginning of a new adventure. As a new parent myself, Hangry by Nature features high on my go-to blogs when looking for inspiration and assurances that travelling with kids is possible. I implore you to just read their about us page and you will be hooked (even if you don’t have little ones yourself). With regard to their posts, I recently pinned their 12 Mystical Places In Asia That Will Blow Your Mind to my Asia map, but there is so much more than that. Also, while you’re there, don’t forget to sign up for updates and you’ll get a free downloadable copy of their Genius Travel Hacks for Kids.
February 2018 – Voyager
February’s blogger of the month is actually a couple, Sandy and Vyjay who run their site IMVoyager. The Indian based duo have been blogging for a little over two years but travelling together for over ten, so as you’d expect, they many great posts from all across the world where they not only share the story of their travels, but make sure they include super helpful tips and information along the way. If you check The Travel Blogs Asia map, you will find many of their posts pinned, including one of my favourites about the home of Mahatma Ghandi.
January 2018 – The Winged Fork
Run by Abby with a couple of other contributors, it is the humour in her writing that really engages you in the posts and make you want to read on to the end. I already have two of her posts pinned, a great piece about The Colosseum in Rome (funny and factual) and an experience she shared with her sister during a spooky night in Mayerling, Austria.
Abby quit her job in Banking and IT to become a freelance writer, and we are all glad she did. Spend some time at The Winged Fork and you’ll be sure to find some giggles.
*Warning – there is a liberal sprinkling of naughty words, enjoy
