In today's townhall meeting in chat, we discussed sites we could possibly advertise on (since StackExchange may make this possible).
Some usual suggestions came up - like HostelWorld (although they have a pretty active blog), TripAdvisor, Thorn Tree, Airbnb - which may or may not be possible since these are huge sites with a lot of traffic.
What would be nice - and possibly be more realistic - would be to suggest travel blogs and niche websites with small, active, and enthusiastic communities. These need not necessarily be aimed at backpackers; in fact, it would be nice to have some suggestions from currenty under-represented demographics of travellers on our site.
The list from that townhall meeting:
- Chris Guillebeau
- Adventurous Kate
- Nomadic Matt
- Escape the City
- 48 Hour Adventure
- Trains on the Brain
- The Departure Board
Instead of a scattergun approach, it would be nice to get suggestions from communities / blogs you know / have been following for a while. Add your own suggestions with a description of what makes that site stand out OR if you want one of these in the list above dropped, say why.
