If it's possible for a website to have a birthday - it's today for TravelBlog - 10 years!

It's the date that I posted my first blog on a very basic version of what you see today. Last working day.

Lined up for this week we have celebrations around the world, gatherings of bloggers in a few hotspots, (Celebrating TravelBlog's 10th anniversary - Asia,Celebrating TravelBlog's 10th anniversary - North America). We'll be inducting some amazing bloggers to our Hall of Fame - 2012 TravelBlog Hall of Fame , and I've just posted the story of how TravelBlog came to be TravelBlog, a story 10 years in the making...

A little reminder of how far we've come!

Thanks to every one that has helped make Travel Blog what it is today - the world's friendliest travel site!

Happy Birthday, TravelBlog. My daughter has just commented that she is only one year older than TravelBlog, so they are both almost teenagers. 😊

Thanks TravelBlog, for the Hall of Fame award, that I am receiving on TravelBlogs 10th birthday. I received a bunch of awards, and I have given out a bunch of awards over the last few years, but this is the first time, I have actually been nominated by other members to receive an award. Thanks, to those who nominated me. It is always a compliment, to be chosen. 😊

I am now off to read Alis Front Page blog about the story or TravelBlog, which I have also shared with all my FaceBook friends, whom I have often poked to tell them about something or other that has been blogged about or said on TravelBlog or to show them a great photo of someplace I want to go to. Almost all my FaceBook friends are people I have met on my various travels, so sites like TravelBlog mean something to them too. 😊 Reply to this

A short history of TravelBlog

TravelBlog V3.0 is a religion

Selection of comments by bloggers, about the TravelBlog V3.0 party photos.

That first picture is seriously creepy...makes me think you're about to commit collective suicide or something.

By Go where the pepper grows

Ali is starting to scare me, but I will give the photo a 5 star rating out of support for TravelBlog and Dancing Dave. 😉
