Pardon the shameless self-promotion, but we’re thrilled to announce that over at Travel-Rants.com the Matador Network has just received the Consumer Award for Best Travel Content!

Darren Cronian of Travel-Rants chose the nominees, but the winners were selected by online voting — so thanks Darren, and a huge shout-out and thank you to everyone who sent some ballot love our way!

Congrats also to our fellow-nominees, BootsnAll, Lonely Planet, and WikiTravel.

It’s great to see the array of quality content offered here at Matador seeing some recognition. If you’re new to the network, or have only browsed a couple of our sites before, why not take a moment to look around?

We’re home to a thriving online community of travelers, and an interconnected network of informative and inspiring travel blogs, covering everything from hot nightlife to studying abroad to spiritual travel, and more.

Here’s a video introducing the Matador Network, from our YouTube channel:
