Wanderlust Wednesdays: A Facebook Blog Carnival

As some of you know, I juggle a full time job while travel blogging on the side. And like most working folks, Wednesdays always seem to be so hard to get through. It’s the middle of the work week – fortunately, it’s far enough away from Monday, but sadly, it’s not yet close enough to Friday! On Wednesdays (well, pretty much everyday at work), the hours can’t go by fast enough, and I always find myself pining for the weekend and longing to be anywhere other than my cubicle.

So, I can’t think of a better way to get over “hump day” than to host a blog carnival on my Facebook page every Wednesday. The carnival is called Wanderlust Wednesdays.

Here’s how it’ll work…

Every Wednesday, I’ll post an invite on the Time Travel Plans Facebook page for all of you travel bloggers out there to post a recent post from your blog. To post, simply submit a comment to my invitation.

There are 3 simple rules:

  1. Please wait for my invite before posting on Wednesdays,
  2. Only submit ONE post as multiple posts from the same blogger will be deleted, and
  3. Only post on Wednesdays, or your post will be deleted.

In keeping with the theme, submitted posts should inspire readers’ wanderlust and make them want to hop on the next plane, train, bus, or jump in their cars and hightail it to someplace new! Sound good? If so, please be sure to submit on Wednesday!

      Thanks, Tammy! I appreciate your support. And I’m soooo looking forward to the day when I can be my own boss and be location independent. Until then, I’ll have to rely on my holiday travels and my in-between wanderlust!

      Thanks, JR. yTravel Blog also invites bloggers to share their posts, so I thought to do the same but to brand it as a carnival. Hopefully we’ll all get some new readers. I look forward to reading your posts – as always!
