TravelBlog.org has been the one of the leading travel communities for the last ten years, we host hundreds of thousands of blog entries, millions of photos and a fantastically diverse, friendly and enthusiastic membership. We are community of tourists, travellers, explorers and adventurers who come together to share our passion for travel.

Outside of our community, our recognition is below what one would expect with such a popular site - we want to change that! The increased publicity will bring more attention to Travelblog, and to you our members, meaning more readers and visitors.

The World Travel Awards is a program whose aim is to encourage world-class competition, to stimulate innovation and creativity, and to ensure travellers receive exceptional value. Every year the World Travel Awards holds an open vote on the best in the industry - there is a category specifically for Travel Blogs/Community - and we're nominated!

We're up against some tough compeititon - tripadivsor.com (which has won this award twice previously), is nominated again. Please vote and let's claim this category for Travelblog on behalf of all of its members!


How to Vote:

1) Go To World Travel Awards - Travel Blogs/Community category.

2) Look for "Vote Now" - midway down the page

3) You'll need to register at this point - click register and fill in the form - make sure you uncheck the mailing options.

4) Two options for voting appear now - navigate to Travel Community and select travelblog.org

The deadline for the Travel Technology category is 10th November 2011 - so please vote, and spread the word! Reply to this

That's brilliant news Ali, congratulations! I will certainly vote and I'll spread the word as much as I can.

I signed up in 2005 - since then it has kept all the things that made it great (attractive layout, friendly and diverse members), but added dozens of excellent features. It's just the complete travel experience.

Even though I'm not as active here as I used to be, TravelBlog is still one of my very favourite sites. Some of the bloggers here have changed how I view the world - Cumberland Sausage, Bedreddin, Postcard Junky - and have taught me a lot. I'm very grateful to TravelBlog for that.

Congratulations. TravelBlog has been my avenue to stay in touch with family and friends, as I work and travel in China. It has permitted me to share 1,000s of photos and commentary on my life, travels, and adventures. Thank you and hope you will continue to enjoy success. Hans Reply to this

I happily voted for your great community; however, I couldn't have done so without Ali's very clear instructions. As usual, thanks for your great support! Reply to this

Be rude not to vote, anything to help out. Joining this site and travelling the world has been one of the best things I ever did. A huge thank you to Ali, Jo and Mel XX Reply to this

Thanks to everyone for voting and supporting travelblog - we have 11 days left - and still need lots of votes. (though I have no idea how many!) Reply to this

We took a few minutes out of our exploring around the souks of Marrakesh to cast our vote for Travel Blog.

Congratulations on the Nomination -- hopefully many others will cast their vote for the best.... which we all know is Travel Blog.

We love the community of friends we have made at Travel Blog and love to read of everyone's travel and adventures.

Good luck and keep us posted.

I've voted but I forgot to click uncheck the mailing options, so anybody else who votes, don't be as daft as me and forget to do this as I expect I will now be inundated with junk mail!!!! Reply to this

In response to: Msg #146225
I voted on 25 October (2 days before this thread appeared) and also forgot to uncheck the email box. Since then I have received one email from World Travel Awards (re Best Theme Resort in North America) and four from Breaking Travel News which provides news on the travel industry. Both types of email have an "unsubscribe" or "remove" option. Reply to this
