I am so happy to finally announce an exciting new feature here at Also Coffee. Together with one of my favorite blogs – Almost Ginger – we are hosting a fun link up party celebrating bloggers’ hometowns. Keep reading to find out more information about the link up and how you can participate!
WHAT is HOMETOWN TOURISTS?
The idea for Hometown Tourists came out of my own love of talking about my favorite parts of Baltimore and how I frequently look to local bloggers in various travel destinations to get the best look at a city I want to visit. I thought that creating a link party centered on hometown discoveries would get people to talk about and experience their own city like they would a travel destination. I pitched this idea to Rebecca of Almost Ginger (who does amazing work covering her hometown of Manchester on her blog) and luckily for me she was totally down to team up!
Our hope is to bring people together by not only finding out unique things about other cities but encouraging bloggers to take a closer look at their own. We will have a monthly theme for each link up party and you are encouraged to participate by dropping a link (old or new) in this post.
September’s theme is a simple start as we are asking bloggers to talk about their Number One MUST in their city – it could be a restaurant you recommend, an activity to do, or some other unique experience – the post is up to you.
Don’t have a blog but want to participate? No problem! We are creating a Hometown Tourists Instagram account to help share your best hometown snapshots. We are aiming to have that out next month but in the meantime, feel free to send recommendations via your favorite social media platforms by tagging it with #HometownTourists or email me your photos directly!
