One of the slowest weekends ever. Or maybe it was because life has caught up with me attending higher priorities. Or whatever. One thing is clear to me: The miles/points blogosphere, understandably and naturally, is slowing way down. I guess all these hits are taking their toll. There is just not that much interesting stuff to blog about anymore, everyone repeating everyone else.
You may say “Hey TBB, that is all you do!” Well, doh…My blog curates the most eclectic staff in the blogosphere, this was the intent from Day One! While I do this, I may add what I think it is entertaining/educating/inspiring to say. If not, I just provide the link and shut up. Whenever I have something to say I do it in a separate blog post. I wish so many blogs did the same instead of cut and paste or torturing us repeating what the original source said trying to sound different (often without success). Yawn to pieces!
The hardest working intern was on it right away about the latest BS from Marriott’s CEO. To me, Marriott is the Delta of hotel loyalty programs (oh oh, waiting to be abused by Marriott fan boys for this). I also don’t believe much of what was said about the offer from Anbang.
It appears that Virgin America is sold to Alaska Airlines for more than $2 billion. I am going to spare you all kinds of analyses on this, please see a real aviation industry expert if you are interested and avoid a “miles/points” blogger!
10 Best Airports in the world. Interesting list. No surprise at all that Singapore’s Changi was again #1.
Stunning Drone Photos of Hong Kong’s High-Rise Dense Landscape. Wow, these are amazing!
This is something cool. Portraits of officials from a country that does not officially exist: Transnistria.
Your personal finance fix of the day is this wonderful post by Morgan Housel: “Things I’m Pretty Sure About“. Must read. You are welcome. Need to go on curating…
Well, not much to curate folks. We are talking not much eclectic stuff in the blogosphere left. From the whole weekend, Wow, is that sad or what?
So, lets have some fun. You know I don’t mail it in for the check as some…
First, this is awesome. Check out the name on this credit card. WOOHOO!
If you are not tired of the crap, you can start reading from #41 the never ending love to this blog by his #1 hater, the founder of Frugal Travel Guy. One of the original and ever present blogs in the world famous TBB Blogs To Ignore list!
Would you ever associate The Points Guy with Financial Literacy? Never in a million years! The audacity…wow! Kind of like…”your credit is the most important asset” and then you get totally demolished by the endless credit card sales pitches!!!
OMG, Loyalty Traveler‘s hotel accounts have been hacked. Be careful out there!
I am really proud of my Blog Review Lists. I think I am being fair as a blog critic and it is a great blog feature for newbies to get educated. I am sorry to report I have taken out Travel Is Free out of the Blogs I Like list. This blog was the best miles/points blog for a long stretch.
And I leave you with this…
Posts will get shorter. Not that much worthy enough to curate. I am sorry. It is what it is. What will be your next hobby when you are sick of the devaluations and shutdowns and revenue based redeeming becomes the law of the land?
Please help bloggers you appreciate & make a positive difference in your life by spreading the word about their blogs, emailing and commenting and using their few $ links, thank you!
