When I saw the Time’s Culture supplement last Sunday I jumped with joy: the cover page boasts “The top 100 blogs- Intelligent, Informative, bizarre: there are 200 million blogs in the world. Don’t panic we’ve pick the best”. I avidly searched for the article inside the supplement just to find out that they had not listed any travel blogs – whether in this first part or in next week’s part 2.
So nothing on travel? How disappointing! The article divides the top 100 into world affairs, celebrities, style and words sections to name but a few. Next week we’ll see the contributors pick on film, art, theater, pop and more. I mean I highly recommend the article: Did you know that Paris Hilton runs a blog on myspace? Or that seeing a Dutchman running away from his camera is most entertaining?
Seriously now, I can recommend the snippet “How to search the Internet for blogs“. If like me you are tired of technorati (whose list of authoritative travel blogs is completely flawed) and are looking for good alternatives, the article recommends Blogpulse and the new Google blog search.
In case the Times journalists are reading this article I thought I’ll let them in on some top travel blogs out there.
- Traveling Mamas
- Holiday Pad
- Grid Skipper
- World Hum
- Hotel Chatter
- Telegraph’s Travel Blog
- Intelligent Travel
