Aug 13th 2010 11:55AM Didn't know about your prior work experience Matt -- you should make mention of that more often so people can put your travel experiences in the greater context of your life experiences.

It makes a real difference when you can include airfare for the winner of a contest!
Feb 19th 2010 10:20AM @Caitlin - I contacted Gadling in advance of the Travel Blog Success launch and offered a preview. I had no control over what the writer decided to say or focus on, and I certainly didn't pay for their coverage.
It wasn't easy coming up with a price, however based on the initial feedback I'm hearing from members, they have been satisfied with the value being delivered for their investment.
@Happy Hotelier - As I mentioned above, I did not pay for advertising. One of the things I've always appreciated about the online travel community is the way sites support one another. I only paid for a small amount of advertising for the launch, and that was on Facebook.
@Kevin - "As the travel writing debate rumbles on, it is also quality of writing itself, including spelling headlines correctly, which will help - but not guarantee - success."
Thank you for pointing out that misspelling. I'm not claiming to be infallible when it comes to delivering a quality experience for my blogs' readers. If you've been a regular reader of Go Backpacking for the last 3 years, you know misspellings are a rarity there, whether it's a post I published myself or one I've edited from a guest contributor.

Oct 9th 2009 1:19PM Your experience reminds me of my own on a Hill Tribe trek in northern Thailand - culturally disappointing, though you still look for the positives you can gain from investing the time and energy.
