Some News from Katie on the Map

Tibetan prayer flags in Florida

Just a head’s up: this is going to be a newsy sort of post.

For those of you eagerly anticipating an account of my travels through Singapore and Malaysia, I’m sorry, but you’ll have to wait a bit longer. I’ll explain, but here’s the low down:

  • Katie on the Map now has a Facebook page. I finally broke down and created a page for this blog, which means that you can like Katie on the Map and get photos, links and news that you won’t get here on the site. Trust me, it’s worth a click. 
  • I’ve started contributing to a few online websites, which is exciting to me for several reasons. First of all, I get to write regularly about travel, which is awesome. Secondly, I get to see how professional travel sites function; this is also wonderful as I’m continually presented with the fact that I don’t really run this website as well as I could. Which brings me to my next point…
  • I’m going to do my best to post regularly to Katie on the Map. And by regularly, I mean at least once a week but I’m shooting for twice a week. There, I’ve said it. It’s out there and I’ll have to stick to it. That being said, I’d love some feedback as to what you like and what you don’t. Feel free to leave a comment here, send me an email or leave a note on the Facebook page.

That’s most of my news. I’m heading to TBEX (Travel Bloggers Exchange) in Toronto at the end of the month, so I’ll have  a few things related to that incredible event to share. If you have any tips or suggestions for Toronto, let me know.

About the photo:

As part of my long list of things to do, I finally hung the prayer flags that I got in Tibet. I bought these in front of the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa last May, but only recently added them to the pergola in my backyard. It’s a gorgeous time of year here in Florida and seeing their splashes of color waving gently under the roses just makes me happy.

What souvenirs have you brought back from your travels? How do you display them?
