Poll: Rick Seaney Named Best Business Travel Blogger

Once again, I find myself in the pleasantly embarrassing situation of announcing some good news – about me. I’ve just been voted Best Business Travel Blogger in a poll organized by USA Today’s 10Best site. Thanks to you.

Thanks, FareCompare Fans

I deeply appreciate every vote from FareCompare fans – those of you who come to our site to shop for the best airfare deals and those of you who watch our videos, listen to my podcasts or read my columns at ABCNews.com, USAToday.com and FOXNews.com.

If you’ve stumbled on this by accident, there’s no need for you to remember my name but I hope you will remember FareCompare – and join us, next time you want to find the best airfare deals available.

And thanks again. I am honored.
