Good afternoon, Elizabeth, and a hearty welcome to Go-Lo! It's great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.

To get the most out of it, you may want to take a few minutes to join several of our many groups which you might find of particular interest, such as Media Only, California, Health & Travel, Splurges Extraordinaire, Travel Photography, Bed&Breakfasts/Inns, New Zealand, Australia, Eating/Drinking the World, Wine Tourism, and plenty of others covering many topics and most destinations throughout the world.

FYI, on your profile you'll see a blue bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself, your interests, your travels, and your writing/outlets.

Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, and readers. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!). If you have any way of covering Go-Lo in any of your outlets, that would of course be greatly appreciated, and we invite you to consider exchanging links where appropriate and also blogging for us (guidelines/rates available upon request).

Thanks for joining us; we wish you a great rest of 2009 and look forward to hearing more from you...!
