Waco. Wacotown. It has a new place on the map. The map of destinations. People are actually traveling here. To see Waco. It is getting recognition. Some good. Some bad. But we, as Wacoans, are getting noticed. And everyone knows Magnolia is playing a large part. Baylor, good and bad, has also played a part in the notoriety.

I also was lucky to be a guest photographer and Instagramer, called a baton photographer, for the ilovetexasphoto Instagram account. I did this in March, less than a week before I had ACL replacement surgery. I hobbled along Waco, photographing my favorite places. I then blogged about the experience and all my Waco-loves and you can read about those three days here.
I started thinking, all these people are coming to Waco to visit the silos and Magnolia Market. Then what? There is far more to do in Waco. But do these visitors to our town know about these cool spots to visit, eat and drink?
So I wrote an article for Culture Trip, an online travel magazine, based in London. Yes, London! I wrote the article for Culture Trip Texas, a hub of the larger magazine. You should use this as a great source when traveling. There are articles about every major city in the world-including Waco!

I was looking at Pinterest last night and I was shocked to find my article for Culture Trip had been pinned 1,8K times!
This was a ohhh-mmmm-geeee moment for me!
Tomorrow, for Day Seven of my thirty-wonderful days of writing on my blog, as part of the #write31days challenge, I will link more Waco articles that I have written.
I write for a small newspaper and a small entertainment magazine in Waco, and I love it. I get to write about Waco. I get to write about charity events, businesses, and people that inspire me, in Waco.
I love my job. Waco and writing and writing about Waco make me happy. I try to write positive, uplifting pieces that help people.
Keep Waco Wacko!
Love and blessings~dd
