Las Vegas-The Venetian

My blogging 101 assignment is to identify my audience. This assignment made me realize that I don’t like the name of my blog “Travel Memories”.  I work full-time and run my travel business. I may have time for my personal travel, three to four times a year. I don’t want my blog to be only about travel memories. I want it to be about different destinations, hotels, cruising, travel tips, how to plan your dream vacation and travel news. I would like to help people who believe they cannot afford to travel now. They feel that they have to put off their travel until they reach the magic number “retirement age”.  I love to help people plan travel in advance.

This is a place to express my random thoughts on travel and share information.

What I plan to do is to create another page within this blog titled memories. Sharing your travel memories with me will be great!

I have decided my new name will be “Carol’s Random Travel Thoughts.”
