    I think your VIP list is perfect and I can definitely see how they go with your blog. I like how each have the same “Travel” theme (obviously to match the blog) but differ a little bit. It shows variety. I like the bios for each they weren’t boring to read and it was laid out in a way that made it easy to scroll down and read. Nice!

    You did a really good job explaining how your VIP’s are relevant to your blog! I also love the images you used. You could have just put a photo of just your face, but you made sure that they were photos of them traveling to show how they are relevant to your VIP list. Awesome job!
