Best Travel Blogs and Bloggers To Be Recognized In 2007 Awards

January 31, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Announcing the 2007 Travvies, recognizing the best travel blogs on the web. Travel blogs are an increasingly important resource. Public nominations for awards in six categories begin on February 5, 2007.

There are thousands of travel blogs on the internet, but until now, no venue has existed to recognize the best travel blogging on the web. The 2007 Travvies — the travel blog awards — fill this void.

"Travel blogs of all stripes are increasingly important outlets for great information and great writing," notes Mark Ashley, editor of Upgrade: Travel Better and the organizer of the 2007 Travvies. "Travel bloggers may cover the destination, the journey, or both. They might focus on business, leisure, or some combination. But at the end of the day, they're about a space outside of the normal confines of home and office."

Any travel blog that existed in 2006 and that generated at least 52 posts in 2006 is eligible for nomination.

Categories include:

Best Travel Blog

Best Destination Blog

Best Informative/Practical Travel Blog

Best Group-Written Travel Blog

Best Single-Author Travel Blog

Best Photography on a Travel Blog

The Travvies will be hosted at .

Nominations will open to the public on February 5, 2007.
