The Death of the Travel Blog

Make The Great Escape Logo

The provocative title “The Death of the Travel Blog” drew my immediate attention to the blog “Make The Great Escape”.

Read the post and see for yourself what I mean: A refreshing new approach to travel blogging.

That is what i mean with a Gem. I found it while updating my T-List somewhere between the Technorati backtags, even before Worldhum referred to it, but reminded me to pay some attention to it.

Most certainly the Worldhum attention for a Travel related Blog barely a month old will draw some more attention to them. Now I only hope they keep hanging in.

Added December 23, 2008:
I noted the blog was discontinued. So I deleted all links. From time to time you have to check your old posts and old links… Food for a post about The Dead Travel Blogs Society. This is an analogy to a former life of mine as a Rosarian. Many rose I used to grow died after one or two years and became members of my Dead Roses Society.

Edit June 20, 2009
In my prior edit I left the Worldhum link where it was. It amazes me that Worldhum doesn’t have a linkchecker on its site….now I took the link to Worldhum that in itself links to the dead blog, away from here.

5 Star Luxury Hotels Blog

David Ourisman

When I noticed 5 Star Luxury Hotels Blog I thought: “A star is Born, just what I missed: An easy to access repository of 5 Star Luxury Hotels”.

David J. Ourisman of Travel Horizons started this Blog somewhere in May 2007.

Update: and barely a year after this post David stopped posting…..

Oops and I thought he was from Down Under, but actually he is from the US.


Unfortunalely, barely a year after this post David stopped posting…
