Introducing Blog Tour: The City Of Dreams ‘New York’

Blog Tour, The World Designed, New York City Presented by Modenus

The ‘Big’ Question that keeps on getting asked is ‘What is a Blog Tour’?

Blog Tour is organised by  the leading online resource and project management platform for designers and design lovers. The concept involves bringing selective groups of interior design and lifestyle bloggers to international trade shows and design events so that they can report back on all things design to their readers and social media followers.

So Why a ‘Blog Tour’?

Blog Tours mission is to further the understanding of design and trends in design, across various cultures, countries and even continents. In doing that, BlogTour promises to provide added exposure for designers, artisans and ‘BlogTour’ Sponsors as well as connections between bloggers in the various locales.


The first ‘Blog Tour’ took place over the London Design Festival in September last year it was a huge success for the 18 American/Canadian bloggers who came over to London and a huge success for the ‘Blog Tour’ sponsors. Further ‘Blog Tours’ are planned for 2012, including Milan, Paris, and London again…..

So this brings us to the exciting second ‘Modenus’ ‘BlogTour’ – Blog Tour NYC!

So How did ‘Dreamwallstyle’ actually get onto Blog tour NYC

Good Question, How did ‘Dreamwallstyle’ get on to ‘BlogtourNYC’? Well it actually goes back to last summer, which seems a world away now… Modenus had a poll called the ‘Blogs blog vote for your top three faves!’ ‘Dreamwallstyle’ blog was voted into the top 3 making it one of the only two UK blogs in the poll, including the most talented design writer   ‘Stacey Sheppard’  Stacey and I were absolutely thrilled to be given such great recognition. But even more good news was soon to come….. shortly after ‘Blog Tour 2011’ was announced, Modenus dropped the bomb that Stacey and I had secured our places onto ‘Blog Tour NYC’.

Shortly after Decorex held a competition and the winner Andrew Dunning not only became the official blogger for ‘Decorex’ but he also secured his place onto ‘BlogTour NYC’.

Modenus then put together at the end of 2011 a ‘lets brag it’ blog nomination page. Design bloggers had a chance to submit their blogs for a chance to attend ‘Blogtour’ with over 200 entries too choose from only 12 lucky bloggers were selected….

So who are the final 15 bloggers going on ‘Blog Tour NYC? 

Well what a lovely bunch we are 😉

1. Stacey sheppard

Its not only Modenus who organises ‘Blog Tour’ and trust me they work very hard to ensure all runs to plan  (I’ve seen this first hand from ‘Blog Tour 2o11 London) but ‘Blog Tour’ would not be possible without all the generous support from the sponsors.
