Why TravBuddy RocksMay 3, 2006By: Mary Winston Nicklin
You're about to head out on a trip to Budapest or Timbuktu and you're thinking of starting a blog. Maybe you just want a space to showcase the gazillions of photos you will take (you're a little snap-happy with the new digital). Or maybe you tend to wax poetic about monuments and museums. Or maybe you just want a cool mapping feature to illustrate your travels. Or maybe you want to glean some advice from the locals about trendy hotspots. TravBuddy is the place to do it. TravBuddy is a travel-networking community that allows you to write travel blogs and review destinations all over the world. The Google mapping features are rad. They offer unlimited photo hosting. And it's super easy to post comments and/or connect with other travelers. And TravBuddy is also useful right from your own backyard-- whether you're an enthusiastic armchair traveler or want to share local tidbits about restaurants or shops in your hometown. Check it out.
