Hey Matt, I think I’m becoming a WordPress Blog Evangelist. I’m telling everybody with anything to say to get a WP blog going ASAP. Oddly (or not?) they all want their hand held while setting it up rather than just logging on and following the excellent directions and support here (there?) at WordPress.
The good news is that while blogging in many technology sectors is going strong now, in travel (in fact in almost all of the non-tech sectors) I think blogging has not even reached that powerful upward inflection point.
Thus my dream of creating a huge, unstructured global travel blogging network is still attainable. In fact wouldn’t it be neat if people started getting specific travel advice from local bloggers who they’d then take out to dinner to say “thanks!”. Friendships would blossom, tourism would bring prosperity to every corner of the globe, and we’d have world peace through blogging. (insert violin holiday music here)
