  1. Great post, Rebecca! Thanks for reminding folks about Forums – they are really a great way to connect and share experiences and knowledge.

    You’ve also inspired me to add another Forum Category for Destinations & Travel Tips…..a place to share info on the best ways to get “there” (anywhere) and what to do once you’ve arrived. Since it’s a brand new category it may take a while to get populated, but I hope folks will stop by and share travel stories and advice.

  2. Good post Rebecca, shows the immense benefits of forums, not just in travel writing but for any topic :-)

  3. Forums are a great place to meet people and to network. The bonus is that you’ll learn from others. You never know who’ll have the answer to your questions.
