Congratulations to our 2013 Hall of Fame Inductees, part of our 11th year anniversary celebrations!

This year we have added 21 amazing bloggers, talents in writing or photography or both. Ranging across diverse ages and nationalities, the styles of the blogs are as diverse as the travel style they represent.

To anyone who is new to Travel Blog - read these blogs - this is what Travel Blog is all about! Real people traveling and sharing the experience. Most have had a realization that their blog is not just being read by friends and family, but is open to people anywhere. They have received messages and comments from all around the world.

If you're reading this and are wondering why a particular blog is not included - we have around 300,000 accounts now and around 8 million photos. We are bound to have missed some amazing bloggers.

You can ensure that they'll be recognized next year by nominating them for blogger or photo of the week, following them (click the follow button under their profile photo) and talking about the blogs in the forum.

Some of you I have followed and been inspired by your blogs. Most of you I don't know but I look forward to reading your blogs in the future.

It's not a simple process getting nominated to the Hall of Fame, never mind getting elected.

Congratulations to all of you.

Congratulations to all! We have some reading to do to catch up. It can take a lot of time to write a blog, but the effort is worth it, not only to serve as a reminder of our own journeys but when the rest of the world stops by to comment you get such a buzz which provides the enthusiasm to write more!
