FFU To Join Boarding Area

Drum Roll Please

In case you don’t follow me on Twitter or Facebook, I am extremely excited to announce that Frequent Flyer University will be joining the Boarding Area group of bloggers!

I started Frequent Flyer University on January 1, 2012 and have been doing FFU for a little over 1 1/2 years now.

In that short time, Frequent Flyer University has gone from 1 reader (me) to a couple thousand a day!

Since I started FFU, I have always toyed with the idea of joining Boarding Area since its founder, Randy Petersen, was the one who gave me my “big break” by letting me blog for the SMD3.

This past May, Randy graciously invited myself and some other travel bloggers out to Boarding Area’s convention (BAcon) out in Colorado Springs.

Not only was it great to see all the other Boarding Area bloggers in person, but it was also fascinating to see the kind of infrastructure and resources Randy has put behind Boarding Area. It is not a joke to host 30+ travel blogs from all around the world, on a single site!

After spending a weekend with Boarding Area and seeing Randy’s commitment to travel bloggers, I decided to join Boarding Area.

So in the coming months, Frequent Flyer University will slowly be transitioning over to Boarding Area. Eventually when you visit FrequentFlyerUniversity.com, you will be redirected to BoardingArea.com/FrequentFlyerUniversity

While I will still be at the helm of FFU writing things about all things travel, by joining Boarding Area there will be some major changes. The biggest one being a much needed site redesign!

Overall, I am extremely ecstatic to be joining the Boarding Area family and can’t wait to get started!

Thanks to everyone who has supported FFU from the beginning and I hope you will join me in this next chapter for FFU!
