Happy New Year to all TBB readers!
This is the best recap I have seen so far, must read!
We can not escape it. We have not seen anything like it. These cartoons pretty much nail what we are all experiencing. God help us all. I look at my kids and tell them “If Trump can become President, so can you!” #thinkpositive
Some of them I had never heard of. But hey, I never claimed or pretended to be a travel thought leader you guys!
I counted 51 of them. I flew two of them: Air Berlin and Island Air and I enjoyed my flights with them. RIP!
This blog was started to cover/review the travel hacking (aka miles & points) blog space. It has evolved of course. It has never wavered from the mission: To Entertain. Educate. Inspire.
Anyway, this blog is read by many travel/miles&points bloggers and I think this post by Running With Miles is excellent advice, especially to new aspiring bloggers!

Blogging keeps me creative, no problemo there. And you the readers are awesome. Even Ingy, who is an essential feature of TBB Entertainment woohoo!
About the last point (readers are not stupid), it is definitely true with you guys as I aspire my blog to appeal to people above at least an acceptable level of intelligence. But I am not sure this applies to most blogs that appear here that keep selling to their readers NON STOP…
And I leave you with this…
