Yomadic wrote “Twelve Countries, Nine Days, 350 Euros.” One of my favorite travel blogs is back!
Awesome aviation video by Wolfe Air. First found here.
15 Charming Side Streets. By The World Geography. Anyone been to Cartagena? My brother (lives in Sao Paulo) keeps raving about this place. From the pictures I have seen…I am not convinced. Any feedback please comment.
Sign up for Hertz 3x Points promo.
Need to replenish miles/points. Wife and daughter on the way back from Paris. I was getting sick of pizza anyway! I am so so behind on FlyerTalk. This is a disadvantage of blogging. Not as much time devoted to the “hunt” as before. And absolutely no time to burn…and this really hurts!
Need to get kids to school. 6 days left!
ON MY MIND
This is an AWESOME read and must be a required read by all bloggers! Found it on Twitter. “15 things you absolutely must know about social media or your face will melt off and get eaten by goats“. By Bloggess. Hilarious original hard hitting stuff, I am in awe! I want my blog to be like hers. BlogGod, mega lol. It ends with this:
Blogging success is fleeting, fickle, and largely based on luck (much like everything else in the world). This might seem depressing, but in a way it’s rather freeing. It allows you to write for yourself instead of just following a set of rules someone else made for you. Find your own voice. Find your own rules. Find a way of measuring success that’s more about freedom and fulfillment rather than page-views and analytics. Page-views mean nothing a year later, but the words you’ve put together may stand and affect others for a lifetime.
Unless it is a miles/points blog which has morphed into a giant big bank credit card producing pumping machine…
Spent less time today with my Feedly feeds. I did not delete any yet but just did not mark as many for further review. Felt quite liberating actually! Waiting for client’s answer and (secretly) hoping he goes to my colleague who needs the money more as he has a new house and a new baby! I am so weird.
ODDZ & ENDZ
I had heard of this before growing up in Greece…Albanian women who have lived their lives as men. By Bored Panda. I can not imagine…Wow.
6 Powerful Truths to Start Telling Yourself . By Marc and Angel Hack Life. This site has nice inspirational stuff. And totally LOVE this: “My weirdness is one of my greatest strengths”
Deals We Like is on SPG Series Part 5 of 11. With about six days left until the end of the SPG 30k promo I have a feeling this may accelerate just about…now?
Delta Points selling 6 credit cards. And another boring trip report. And it’s only Day One. Gosh. For the record, I posted a comment on the DP interview of Randy Petersen saying how I REALLY enjoyed the post. Just so some people know that TBB focuses only on being “negative”. Yep, proudly censored, another fine blogging practice. Is “Gosh” copyrighted? Finally: Praise is earned!
There was a little disagreement whether to fly first, business or premium economy or economy among some bloggers. This will always go on. It is like the Middle East, peace never comes. Yawn
Marshall Jackson on Travel also sells credit cards, five this time. At least he lists (affiliate link) next to it, something his buddy will never ever do. And you offer to carry his bags too, u crazy? Congrats on making Platinum. Do not celebrate, it is on Delta;-)
34 credit card links in a single post by The Points Guy covering “Top current credit card offers with first year annual fee waived”. I can’t wait for the sequel “Top current credit card offers with first year annual fee NOT waived”.
Milevalue can not contain his excitement in selling American Express credit cards. So much so that he just pulls stuff out of…somewhere. Shaking my head.
So nice of Howie at the Frugal Travel Guy (the blog) to tell us about his birthday celebration in LA. I am sure it was a nice one because you visited Eggslut (love it!) and undoubtedly some of your readers certainly clicked on the top five paying cards and the corporation made even more money for its shareholders. And most would not even have a clue if and how much each click earns FTG (the blog). And you can’t tell us of course. And it’s all in the disclosures. And I am sure nobody is looking for them where they are strategically placed. Oh, happy birthday! Nothing personal. You deserved the top job imho, you were the tech powerhouse behind the operation. Please no more Chase Ink videos on youtube…please!I laughed of the name: Eggslut, classic! Come on, come out, you know you want it!
Lenticular Travel is really quick on them credit card links. It’s okay, I still like his pictures… #watching All these new cats can’t wait to monetize these days…
I am so sick of seeing picture of the Lufthansa First Class Terminal. Once you see it once and say ‘Ohhh”…it’s really not that big of a deal. And you can buy duckies at Wal Mart to impress your weird friends!
Here is me and son just a “few” years ago when most of these bloggers had not even heard of stuff like pudding or bungalows lol. And they were not trying to sell me plastic up the wazoo! Expert this!
