Traveling Brown Girls Blog Carnival Badge — Participating? Grab the badge for your site!

If you subscribe to this blog or a regular on my Facebook page, then you’ve seen the above badge before. For those who haven’t or not quite sure what it’s all about, let me explain.

A blog carnival is an online event that promotes a collection of blog posts on a specific topic, whether it’s a destination, hobby, etc.

I’m excited to be joining an awesome group of brown bloggers who will be hosting bi-monthly carnivals over the next several months…and they are all about travel!

For the bloggers out there reading this, review the topics and submission guidelines below. Create and publish your blog post on the travel topic listed below and submit to the corresponding host. The first topic is due in less than 2 weeks, so hop to it!

Want to participate, but don’t have a blog? Tune in on the Carnival dates for a Facebook discussion or on Twitter (follow the hastag #traveltastic) on the topics.
