I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for Gotham Writers. Last year I attended the one-day intensive in Travel Writing. I then followed up with the How to Blog one-day and a one-on-one session, both with Alison Stein, which provided me with the tools to visualize and create a Wordpress blog. The classes were extremely thought-provoking and hands-on, and, thanks to Alison, I was inspired to finally jump in and launch my travel blog.
In the spirit of celebrating my writing accomplishments, I am happy to announce that my travel blog led to an opportunity as a guest blogger for the Four Seasons Hotels online magazine. Two of my travel articles (recent trips to Costa Rica and Hampshire, England) were featured on their website. Although it is always a continuing challenge to expand my blog and increase my readership and subscribers, it has been a great experience, and I look forward to applying my writing skills to future travel writing opportunities.
Thanks again, and please pass on my gratitude and appreciation to my teachers.
