Blogroll (2017)

Blogroll (2017)

I keep track of recently published articles on a number of travel websites (blogs) as well as a handful of magazines.

When I started my own publishing practice in August 2011, I made a list of good travel blogs that very autumn, and developed it a year later. By November 2013 I had set up my new website here at Sandalsand only this time I defined the “blogroll” as a fixed menu item/page.

The content was updated in the ensuing years on an irregular frequency. That means I have removed some: Travel blogs come, flourish and die. The “digital nomads” and “eternal travellers” settle down and their enlightened flames suddenly vanish. I have also been expanding the list with new interesting travel blogs and magazines, as sources of inspiration and learning. The result is that I still subscribe to many of the sites from the first years.

Time has however come to relegate the status of the blogroll from “page” to “post”. This means that I will no longer update the list below. It will remain as it is, as a reminder of (and recommendation to) good travel websites as of June, 2017. They all exist, but some may not have had new content published for a while. That is in essence not a problem, because they have good articles worth reading up on prior to visiting a particular destination.

I’m doing this for several reasons. One important is that I do not want to spend time administering this particular list. Instead I’m using Feedly to administer my subscriptions (read why). On Feedly my screen is updated with new articles when they are published, automatically. I do not need the list below for my own sake, and frankly it has not been extremely popular among my readers.

I am following more than 5,000 travellers on Twitter, and many among them run a travel blog as well. I have not had a chance to check them all out.
