Travel Blog Exchange '09 Gift Bags

There's been a lot of buzz on Twitter about the TBEX gift bags, so I wanted to post a few pictures here, and to thank the very generous companies who contributed products and services.

    I loved the swag, especially the free airport and airplane wifi b/c let's face it- travel bloggers need to blog while waiting!

    Great swag! Sorry I missed it (for reasons other than the swag, of course). But on assignment in Norway--duty calls, I s'pose. Next year!

    Hey! I didn't get a CD or a thumb drive! *jealous*.

    I REALLY appreciate the Rosetta Stone gift certificate... South America here I come!

    Glad you guys liked our water bottles *hug*

    As if it wasn't bad enough that I couldn't make TBEX ... what great gift bags! I'm totally bummed to have missed out! I'll definitely be there next year. Let us know when you've got the days booked!

    I can't believe I didn't see you at BlogHer.

    You are modeling very good manners by thanking sponsors for contributing to gift bags. I appreciate that - as a professional marketer and as a person who wants our parent blogging community to be known as quality people.

    There isn't anything in that bag I don't like. I especially love Frommer's book, the backpack, and welp, everything!

    It wasn't until I saw your personal swag that I could place you--we met at BlogHer speed dating. I'm really not about the swag (especially after BlogHer ugliness) but these are pretty cool. I'm kicking myself for not registering for TBEX. Not for the swag, but because the couple of hours I joined in were so informative and engaging. (I was intrigued by the tweets and my tweeps suggested I just drop in.)

    It was great and if you want to continue our speed dating conversation (site contributors...), drop me a note.

    Great job on TBEX!
