I encourage you to drop me a line with suggestions, or just to say hello. If you are suggesting certain places to visit, it’s helpful to include their addresses and maybe a little bit about why you love them.
You can also leave suggestions in the comments of posts. Before you email me, you may want to scan my FAQ:
Can I advertise on your blog?
Yes, yes you can. Here’s the information on how to sponsor Connecticut Day Trips.
Who takes the pictures?
I take all of the pictures on this site unless noted in a post.
What kind of camera do you use?
Up until September 2012 I used a Canon Rebel XS 10.1MP Digital SLR which I got on deep discount at Target. It was the floor model so it was half off. Score! I used the kit lens that came with that camera, until June of 2012 when my wonderful boyfriend gave me the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II as a gift. It’s my favorite lens to shoot with and the one I use most often. It’s also extremely lightweight and affordable. I highly recommend it to take portraits (aka pictures of people rather than landscapes).
As of September 2012, I upgraded to the Canon EOS Rebel T4i 18.0 MP CMOS Digital SLR with which I am very happy.
May I use your photos on my site?
Certainly, just please include a link back to this blog as my images are all copyrighted. Also: It’d be nice to give me a heads up, like, “Hey I linked to you here.”
Do you accept guest posts?
Since this blog functions as both a travel blog and a personal blog, guest posts are really not my bag. If you want to send me a link to your blog, I will definitely check it out!
Can I be on your blog roll?
My blog roll is reserved for blogs I read on the regular. I’m happy to take a look at your blog and I am really excited that you are reading mine.
Can I make a suggestion?
I’d love to hear your suggestions on places to go, people to see, things to do; even suggestions on my blog’s functionality, navigation, and design.
Even if it’s negative, as long as it’s constructive, I’m a big girl, I can take it.
How do you choose where to visit?
I base this solely on my interests and my schedule. I am slowly trying to work my way to each corner of the state, but since this is a for-pleasure pursuit for me, I have to let my work and life schedule dictate where I go. You can suggest a venue here: suggest a day trip and I will gladly add it to my To Do list!
Please: Send the full name, address and if possible a URL. Those details make things so much easier on me!
Here’s a list of all the places I’ve been, which is updated not-as-often-as-it-should-be.
How do you choose which restaurants to include?
I choose the restaurants I visit based on location, recommendations from friends and readers of this site, and I often consult Yelp, Chowhound and TripAdvisor. I am not a restaurant or food critic, but I will comment on the food I eat and describe my experience.
I don’t consider myself a food blogger, but I’ve found that people who like to travel tend to like food which is why I always include a few recommendations of places to eat or drink. As described in my post on the Five Places series, I will only include restaurants that are locally-based, non-chain. Caveat: Peppes Pizza is *technically* a chain, but it’s fundamentally different than say, Chillis or Ruby Tuesdays — you get the idea.
