Some MAJOR News For Michael W Travels

A few months back I attended an event in Colorado Springs called BAcon, short for BoarmdingArea Conference. I was thrilled to get an invited to join this amazing group of bloggers for a weekend of learning and meeting lots of like-minded folks. 

BoardingArea is host to a number of top blogs, mainly focused on miles, points and business/ frequent flyers. I’ve been following many of these blogs for quite some time and continue to read them on a daily basis.

When I created Michael W Travels (in October 2011) it was a way for me to stay involved in travel. I was grounded from traveling for a bit due to Kim being pregnant with our now 18 month old son Lucas Miles.

I originally started off with the idea of posting a picture a day but I quickly realized that this wasn’t going to be a good model to build on so I decided to change gears. I decided to cover quite a few topics, some very different than what was being done on other travel blogs. I like to say that I cover pretty much anything related to travel. I like to cover travel news, deals (miles, points, contests) and share stories & photos from my travels around the world. 

Once I got the ideas flowing, I set my goals high. I decided that I wanted Michael W Travels to be a part of the top frequent flyer site out there, BoardingArea.

Well the day has come!

I’m thrilled and excited to announce that I’ve been invited to join BoardingArea! 
The switch will be coming up in the near future.

(FYI, when I move it won’t be my first post on BA. Back in March I had the opportunity to guest post on my good friend Rene’s blog Delta Points. Check it out here.)
