Welcome to my new Tourism Research Blog and thank you for visiting the site. If you checked out the “About Me.” page then you know my name is Kennedy O. Magio. I wanted to welcome you and let you know that I appreciate the fact that you have taken time out of your busy day to look at my blog! Thanks again.
Well, I am excited about using this communications tool and hope it will increase my interaction with tourism scholars, students and the general public. The blog is intended to serve as a vehicle for sharing tourism research findings and most importantly, it gives me an opportunity to hear from you. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: Sustainability, Politics, Local Development, Global Issues and Trends.
This blog is a place for constructive dialogue and information exchange between us (the academic community and the general public), so, I hope you will actively participate! I will be posting regularly on the blog, addressing a variety of topics and hope you will comment on my posts and on the comments of others. Please remember that this is a moderated blog, there are are simple guidelines that we must follow to ensure that everybody is fairly heard. For instance, comments cannot contain vulgar, obscene, offensive or abusive language or personal attacks of any kind. Additionaly, comments cannot promote commercial services or products or political candidates. Please, do not include sensitive or classified information or personally identifiable information, including phone numbers, (other than your name and your email address if you choose to disclose them). I will shortly prepare detailed Blog Guidelines for your perusal, be sure to read them carefuly and act appropriately.
Another important point is that I will always appreciate your feedback about the blog. If you have any comments or suggestions, I welcome them. I know criticism may not be fun to take in, but honest criticism, given in a honest positive manner is something we can all learn from, so feel free to air your views or ideas; remember, we collectively have the responsibilty of growing this blog.
Welcome again to my new Tourism Research Blog. I hope this is the beginning of a lively and engaging dialogue.
