Travel Destinations

That’s it for this edition of the Byteful Travel Blog Carnival. Thanks for everyone who submitted an entry and be sure to take a moment and share this with your social media.

Let me ask you a question. You got BC?

If you write well, have written something travel-related, and you haven’t submitted to the BTBC before, can I ask you a question? What are you waiting for? Blog Carnivals are free and powerful way to get more exposure to your work. By doing so, you reach multitudes, many of which have never even seen your site before, so it’s a real win-win-win situation.

So if you’re a writer, and you’ve written something that relates to travel, submit a piece you’re proud of to the next BTBC by going to the submission form. Just remember to read the simple ground rules.
