But the truth is, I have been writing like a content jumkie. We’ve updated and generated almost 25 pages in two days “away from the blog,” over on the Triporama travel guide section. There is still a lot more writing to do over there, but overall I’m very proud of the new content in our group travel guide.
However, I still can’t shake the strange, empty, longing, Jean-Paul Sarte like feeling of nausea overcoming me by not writing on the Blog at Triporama. Why is this? Do I really think the content we’re making here is earth shattering? Do I believe that I’m a blogging superhero saving the collective group travel Metropolis with each keystroke? Only sort of.
I think this unshakable funk is the result of missing the connection of the fantastic travel community that has brought me in by being a “regular blogger.” The feedback, Triberr, the research, the interviewing all has become the type of community made famous by the social media revolution, right? This is the truth behind all the posts, tweets, channels, and StumbleUpons… we do it to connect with cool people and talk/write for hours about stuff we love together.
Hold on. That’s the same reason we travel together too.
This now sounds like the makings for an upcoming blog post. Now I feel much better.
