I happened to glance up this morning as the NBC Today Show was playing in the background and saw Peter Greenberg doing a travel segment which caught my attention (being a travel guy and all)The segment was on the “Dangers of Driving Overseas“. It was a long segment (4 minutes or so) and I found it interesting.
At the end of the segment — which I must say was visually compelling and the story telling excellent; I found myself shaking my head in wonderment.
Why is it that most TV travel segments allude to websites and information “YOU CAN FIND” on the internet and don’t take the time or effort to post it somewhere easily accessible to help us find IT.
TV Travel Segments – Wheres the Online Beef?
I decided to to put the bulk of my first post in the About Section on this blog which discusses a bit about me.
A friend of mine suggested that I read a book on blogging called “Naked Conversations” so I picked it up and read it on a plane ride to New York.
I found it fascinating, I’ll have to admit I am not a web surfer by any stretch although I was familiar with blogs but only at a cursory level and had really never thought much about what blogging was really about.
After reading about blogging I found that I had already been doing it in a low-tech form by answering thousands of emails the past year as CEO of FareCompare.com and sending out a newsletter to a pretty large list once a week.
So I hope to turn those one-way conversations into two-way conversations here. So please feel free to comment and call me out if you think I deserve it.
