Where's Wendy? Times Square
To see a Galavanting video, shot in Condé Nast Traveler's Times Square offices, about how I attempt to juggle my job, travel schedule, and kids--as well as a few tips for aspiring travel writers and thoughts on new media--click here.
If you're wondering why you haven't heard more from me online lately, it's because I've been holed up in my office trying to crank out certain annual print features for Condé Nast Traveler--namely this June's "Worldwide Guide to Affordable Villa Vacations" (remember last year's guide?), this August's Cruise Guide (remember "You Don't Know Cruising...Until You've Read This"?), and our tenth annual list of the "World's Top Travel Specialists" (you must remember the ninth).
I've also been supervising Daily Deals here on The Perrin Post, of course, as well as planning trips to Dallas, Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago, and Seattle, trying to snag some of those summer travel bargains I wrote about in my "Perrin Report" in the May issue. Meanwhile, you can catch me over on Galavanting TV being interviewed by Travel Blog Exchange founder Kim Mance about why and how I do what I do, as well as at IAGblog Podcasts talking to Addison Schonland about why and how the travel industry should be using Twitter to reach travelers.
I also try to check in daily on Twitter to answer readers' travel questions. Here's why. I've gotten a slew of reader questions via e-mail lately, yet I far prefer answering questions either on Twitter (if they're short) or here on this blog (if they're long). That way, everyone can hear the answer and add his or her advice to the conversation. So please consider submitting your questions via one of those public platforms. Thanks, everyone!
