Blogs and travel (and bed and breakfasts)

In this months issue of Lodging Magazine www.lodgingmagazine.com there is an article titled "Hot Blogs: Tracking the influence of the Internet on travel planning" which states that "Two thirds of active travelers now go exclusively to the Internet to obtain information when planning vacations, and four out of 10 now report "regularly reading" visitor critiques and opinions online", which is why it is so important to spend time each day keeping an eye on your website and elsewhere that you might be mentioned.

As an innkeeper who loves marketing, I enjoy posting on our bed and breakfast blog, but also surfing the web to find interesting places to list our B&B or just read comments about other inns and what they are up to. I also try and keep track of some favorite sites on the Internet like www.Tripadvior.com, www.Traveller.org, www.ysearchblog.com, www.myspace.com, www.virtualtourist.com, www.lonelyplanet.com, www.travelblog.org, www.livejournal.com, and www.xanga.com
