#ResidentTourist Link Up Announcement

How many times have you dreamed about traveling to an exotic and far away destination all while completely ignoring the wealth of culture thriving in your current place of residence? When was the last time you were a tourist in your own town, city, county, state or heck, country? If you answered “yes” or “I have no idea” to either of these questions, then this link up might be just for you. In an era where supporting local produce and businesses are a growing trend, it only makes sense to play the part of “local tourist” as well. 

On the last Friday of every month, I will be hosting the #ResidentTourist link up where you can link up your “local” related post. From small town charm to big city hustle; whether it’s checking out a museum, trying out a new restaurant in town, volunteering at a shelter, visiting a historical landmark or just taking the time to get to know the people who make your locale tick: the possibilities are endless! 

With that said, I hope you’ll join me next Friday, March 28th at 9am EST for the first ever #ResidentTourist Link Up!
It’s my hope that this link up will inspire you to become more engaged within your community because travel is not just about going away to see beautiful places, it’s about seeing the beauty in EVERY place… And trust me, there is so much beauty in your backyard just waiting for you to untap its potential. :)

And For Future Reference, Here Are The Link Up Dates For The Rest Of The Year :)

  • Can't wait!

  • Great idea! I'll see you next Friday :)

  • LOVE this idea! Totes linking up next Friday :) x

  • This is an awesome idea! I don't get to travel as much as I used to because of work and student loans, so I have really made the effort to explore every part of DC possible – and there are a ton! I'm excited for my post next Friday – hopefully we don't pick the same places! ;)


  • this is such a good idea!! really looking forward to it; it's so easy to take our own cities for granted and overlook amazing places we are so close to. x

  • Ooh what a fun idea! I'm going to keep this is mind this weekend and hopefully gather some good stuff to post about next week :)

  • I live it! I'm all about exploring the things right around you. Count me in for the link-up!

  • oh look at you with your link up :) i think it's a nice way for people to show their hometown.

    which means i need to get my ass out of the kitchen and explore hahaha

  • Great idea!!

  • Awesome idea for a link up! I am always planning stay-cations because there are always so many things to do right here in my local area. :)

  • I'm so glad I just stumbled upon your blog! So fresh. And it's so funny you're doing this Resident Tour linkup, because I was just about to start a photography/blog project on profiling smaller towns that no one really knows about. I will definitely be joining in. Thank you! :)

  • I am so far behind on blog reading that I just read this today (the 31st) but this is great and might spark me to get back into blogging more (about things other than my baby – haha). Good idea! I'll try to get something ready for next month! :)
