About my methodology: I polled 954 readers, offering a list of 20 nominees, which were chosen based on their visibility and traffic. Although the initial list was subjective, I included a write-in option. Two of the winners — Johnny Vagabond and Legal Nomads — were write-ins.
Full disclosure: I have written for or edited several of these blogs, including Consumer Traveler, of which I was the editor until this January. I felt that excluding every blog I’d been a source for or had written for would be unfair.
Some of you were unhappy with not being part of the initial 20 nominees. I hear you! Next year, I will try to expand the list to include more travel blogs.
By the way, thanks to all of you who nominated this site. I don’t think I deserve to be on this list (strictly speaking, this isn’t a travel blog, but a consumer advocacy site) but if I had included all the write-in votes for Elliott.org, I would have made the top 10. I appreciate your support.
Congratulations to all the winners.
