Where In The World is NYCityMama?

Ever have to say goodbye to a friend and felt conflicted? you know… sad to see them go but happy to see that they are “going places”. That kind of describes how I felt the other day when one of my feeds in Flipboard (on my Samsung Galaxy 3) disappeared and was replaced by a new feed… with a new name and a new direction.
My friend, Carol A. Cain, one of the most prolific bloggers I know, posted a video letting me (and her fanbase) know that the blog we loved (NYCityMama) that chronicled her families NYC lifestyle and travel adventures has evolved and has rebranded. The new blog… Girl Gone Travelis a product of what Carol described as her Blog “growing up”.I want to congratulate Carol and her family on embracing the natural evolution of the blog… and being an example of what a successful blogging looks like. I have said this before, but Carol has been an incredible source of inspiration for me personally since we met a few years back at the 1st LATISM Conference.Now that my twins have left for college, I think I have just become part of one Girl Gone Travel‘s new demographic… those people ready to see the world now that their kids are older. I am anxious to see what new adventures await the Cain family. I am especially interested in the good eats and wine section as well as the romantic getaway sections. In addition, I always tune in to Carol’s insight about the business of blogging, so I was very excited to see that she dedicated a section to blogging & branding.
I will miss the old site but I am so happy that Carol has started writing a new chapter in her blogging history… I look forward to her and her families new adventures.
If this is your first time hearing about Carol A. Cain, here is her bio… connect with her, get to know her.
