Don't know if this is already in effect or not, but have you guys ever thought of writing a weekly or monthly article on a different destination? Kind of like stories from abroad, not like the travel log and diary we already have. Something like different TP members can submit articles about a location they are either in at the moment, or just got back from... it would be cool to know of the anecdotal experiences we all go through in various parts of the world, or some stories from off the beaten path travels, or observations and such....
Funny you should mention it....
We do have something (slightly similar) in place but I admit it's not quite the same as you are referring to (although it could quite easily be). If you have a look in the destinations area (link at top of every page), there are different destination guides. We have most countries covered by now, but only with real basic info. There is an area there where any TP member can submit travel writing about a destination but I think that area isn't really getting the visibility it deserves to be honest..... It was also set up more for information about a destination than for travel writing.
I think with some work we will have something ready in the next month or so which will work better. There definitely is going to be a bigger focus on writing and public articles to complement all the diaries that are being kept on the site already (and there are tons of those!). We know there are a lot of people who love sharing their writing rather than keeping it 'hidden' via their member profile area only.
Now, if only there were more hours in a day....
Excellent! I think it would be a cool feature to have and it will make TP even cooler than it already is!
i think that is a fabulous idea.
Woohoo!!! More ways to procrastinate
I definitely agree, I mean, I recently asked a friend to set me up with a website focusing on my travelling journal, pics, messages from home etc.
If there was such a feature on TP I wouldn't have to log twice...although I have to admit having your own site is pretty exciting (to me anyway) So logging twice won't be an issue!
I think you'll find that the up and coming new feature will fulfil that need also
