Best of the Rest (Weekly Links Ending 2/27/11)

  • “We had a plan when we left the United States in September 2009: travel for one year, return home, and resume our jobs.”  Sounds like we have a plan very close to what Akila and Patrick had when they started their journey… and their road has forked quite a bit since then.  Wonder if the same fate awaits us?
  • Candice asks a great question… “What’s your place?”  I can’t wait to find ours, but I’d love to hear about some of yours for travel inspiration!
  • As an aspiring travel blogger, I say bring on as much advice as you can give me!
  • How to stay fit while you travel.  Definitely needed if our “No Carbs left behind” diet stays its course.
  • Sobering thoughts on the reality of travel blogging in 2011 and the inability to make a living doing it.
  • I want to learn Spanish for our travels but have never had that language gene… but hopefully it is true that “persistence wins over destiny” in the language learning department.
  • Just what our trip will be… “A jolt to the soul.”
  • Hugh Macleod is all about Evil Plans.  Since Meg and I love to hatch our own, I always love reading about someone else’s…
  • See Mom and Dad… a Career Break is a real thing!
  • I love me some more thoughts on travel budgeting… but am I crazy or are these budgets INSANELY high?
  • Some great down and dirty tips on how to maintain a travel blog.  It might seem obvious to most of you, but thoughts on how to keep churning out articles is a big help to us newbies.

Thanks Michael! We have been focusing on building up the site and you have some great advice in this article. I have already added Twitter and Stumbleupon buttons… hopefully LandingStanding doing one of your major blogging pet peeves won’t stop you from coming back!

Woot, thanks for the shout-out! Great round-up.

Love to hear these type of startup stories! Don’t know if you read it, but it sounds like you followed The Four Hour Work Week model. Definitely something that Meg and I are trying to pursue. Keep up the great work!

Yeah…that is right, this is useful and sounds great!

Loved reading your articles, Tony. As I’m not ready to retire yet…and pursue my yen for traveling, I’ll have to satisfy myself with “virtual’ traveling online…with informative travel blogs until it’s my time to see and experience the world!

Thanks for sharing!
