Another Opportunity for Travel Writers

Blog Around the World
Want to blog about travel but don't know where to start? I've got the perfect contest for you!

We’ve got wind of another contest for the adventurous travel writers out there!

Blog Your Way Around the World is an adventure blogging contest for those looking for that extra boost to their blogging material cache.  All you need to do is write 400 words explaining why you’re the best blogger around to inspire others to get out there, post it to the website,, and then get you friends, family, and anyone else you know to vote for you. Social media like facebook and twitter are not only allowed, but encouraged! The entry with the most votes by the end of December 31st, 2010, wins.

Wins what you ask? Oh just eight once in a lifetime excursions for two from the seven members of the Adventure Collection, a partnership of premier travel companies.  Go Heli-hiking in British Columbia with Canadian Mountain Holidays. Or zip-lining, surfing and wildlife viewing in Costa Rica with Off the Beaten Path. Or even polar bear viewing in Churchill with Natural Habitat Adventures!

Oh yeah and then there’s the $8,000 airfare credit to help you get from excursion to excursion. And don’t forget the gear package filled with all your adventuring supplies from companies like Ex Officio, Teva, Smith Optics, Eagle Creek Travel Gear, Outdoor Photographer, AFAR Magazine and Gaiam.

There are a few small catches however. The winner and guest have to finish their traveling by December 31st, 2014. Oh yeah the winner has to blog about each adventure, before, during, and after. Adventure blogging for an adventure blogger? Tough cookies, right?

The prompt for your blogging essay is pretty wide open so there’s no excuses! Entries vary between pleas and proofs, to ruminations on the nature of travel writing, to experiences from specific trips. So let your creative juices flow, polish up your favorite post, or just plain old beg for your chance to blog around the world!
