As a blogger, I get to do a lot of fun things! And one of the most recent conferences I’ve participated in that was new to me this year was Travel Media Showcase, a travel conference that connects journalists, bloggers, and influencers with travel destinations. As an avid lover of travel, this media showcase was right down my alley and I had the pleasure of connecting with many other writers and bloggers as well as Convention and Visitor Bureaus around the country. I’ll be sharing more of last week later on but as a start, I’ll tell you a bit about TMS and what all we did.
I found out about TMS from a fellow writer on a media trip earlier this year and came home and signed up immediately. You have to be approved and I was happy to get approved right away. I also found out my cousin, Howard Blount, who is a retired school teacher and travel blogger at Backroad Planet, has been going to TMS for 5 years. Howard is our family genealogist and history buff and travel blogging is perfect for him after he retired from teaching. Check out his blog for all the places he’s visited and reported on. He does a great job with his blog sharing all the travel he has done. The showcase event is 20 years old this year so they’ve been around for a long time. The mother and daughter duo who run the conference were so nice and welcoming to me.
