I am still working on implementing  my 2011 goals for my blog: an increase in readership is always a good thing and more money is not a bad thing either.

What is the purpose of writing a blog if no one is reading it?

Family - My first readers
Readers are the sole reason to write a blog. YOU are important.


When do I blog?

Inaugural flight Junkanoo Parade - great story idea
I blog whenever I can fit it in my flying schedule. I am always looking for inspiration or conversations that I can turn into a blog post.


Where do I blog?

Cabana is a relaxing place to work.
I like the fact that I can blog from anywhere. I can fly and work as a flight attendant and write my blogs on the fly.


Why do I like to blog?



Flying over Memphis, TN

Travel is my passion. I love to talk travel, share travel, be travel.
