I love traveling and meeting new people. I love spending time with friends and seeing new places. Well, I just happen to have another friend on the web who likes to do those same things.
I truly believe you can make awesome friendships on the internet, through blogs and social media. Danyelle from The Cubicle Chick is one great example. I can’t remember which was first, but we comment on each other’s blogs, and kept returning the comments, then started emailing each other. That soon progressed to talking on the phone and on Twitter.
In June Danyelle and I attended Blogging While Brown in DC. While there we roomed together. This was the first time we physically met. We have also planned to be roommates for Blogalicious. AND we will be starting a new travel series together. The whole series is loosely planned at the current time, however we will be the Traveling Chicks.
The first stop for the Traveling Chicks will be the Windy City- Chicago. We will be staying at the Comfort Suites on Michigan Avenue and taking a tour of the Macys. Oh, and Danyelle HAS to stop by Giordano’s Pizza even though I am head over hills in love with Edwardos Pizza. I can’t wait even though I have visited Chicago before. What’s different this time is the blogging connections I have developed since my last trip there. I know for sure we are going to meet up with @Curvatude. If you are in the Chicago and want to get together, let us know, we will see what we can work out. If you are a brand or company that would like to sponsor this trip a future trip or the whole series contact me or Danyelle.
Also, you better bet your pants we will be allover Twitter tweeting away the whole time. You will see us on Yelp, Foursquare, Gowalla, Whrll, and a ton of places. Don’t let me forget the Twit Pics. To join in and follow all the fun you can follow the hashtag #thechicksinchicago on Twitter. Don’t forget to follow @TheCubicleChick too.
Special thanks to Comfort Suites Hotel in Chicago for the accommodations.
