Why don't featured blogs change any more? I used to look forward to reading the new ones. All the current featured blogs are great, but most of them have been there since 2019. I've read them. Any chance we could see some new ones?

I agree.

Probably a victim of the pandemic

I agree, Rosalie. That's probably why they stopped, but I think many people are now travelling again.

I deliberately did a blog of a trip we took during the pandemic so people would have an idea of how to deal with some of the pandemic rules. Let's face it, in the last six months airports have been very crowded so a lot of people are traveling.

Even if that weren't so, a change on the featured blogs would give everyone something to look forward to and do some armchair exploring. That might be more important when you can't travel.

True, Sally. I always find it interesting to look at other people's travel experiences. It gives me ideas for where to go and what to see, or, even if there's no chance I will ever get there, it's just fascinating to learn about new places.

It's a pretty laborious thing to do unfortunately. Reading through all the blogs to pick which ones to feature is time consuming. We had a member who was keen on doing it a few years back which is why there were more of them at that point.

There is an option to view "All posts" on your home page. It's unfiltered so could have some less interesting ones. It might allow you to choose some other members to follow for their updates?

If we aren't going to have featured blogs, why not remove the category?

Or could people apply to have their blog featured?

There should be something that isn't 2 or 3 years old.

Anyone else have any ideas to make the process easier?

Why not ask for new volunteers to do it?

If there is still interest in a volunteer to choose featured blogs I will do it.
