I know we have lots of topics in the members only forum about travel, but haven't seen any topics related to travel bloggers yet. I'm excited to read some :)

I don't even know that there ARE many travel bloggers, but a few people keep asking for a forum, so here it is. I'll get to the MO area ones later today.

Travel Bloggers forum: Because vacations are a full time job

lmao that is all I have to add. Thank you 

I think there are more travel blogs lately….just women in bikini's in exotic locations trying to get attention so companies will pay for their next vacation and of course bikini.

JennaSue from the SOMI board probably needs to be moved here now that she's decided she's going to fix her life through travel.

Travel bloggers seem like something I would like (hate). Any recommendations?

I read a lot of travel blogs so I'm looking forward to this! I know there are two general threads on travel blogs at the moment, one in International and one in Lifestyle…

i think most of the requests were for a travel sub forum, not necessarily a travel blogger sub forum. there are a lot of threads in general discussion and ask a hamcat about holiday recommendations which i think is why people wanted a travel sub forum.

I definitely wanted a travel forum for explicit snark on travel bloggers. Since travel blogs are what I read mostly, I have witnessed them popping up rampantly, and there are some horrible ones. 

So happy for this forum. sani_elephantdance

The World of Wanderlust and Adventurous Kate threads can be added to the new forum too. 

Adventurous Kate McCulley gets lamer and lamer.   She is so basic, like she said she wanted to do something risky………. so she bought a red bikini???    Kate said to feel confident as a woman traveler, order a glass of champagne?  PLEASE.

LOL at how Adventurous Kate is now trying to do those instagram travel girl poses, like wearing a cute dress and taking a photo from behind while looking at a view.  BUT the effect is "fat American tourist showing her butt", this try hard looks like a meaty mess instead.

Is it OK if I say that I am really not a fan of the body slamming in this post? Criticizing her content choices seems on the level but A. Kate is not fat by any realistic definition and B. fat people are still allowed to travel (and even photograph themselves doing it).sf-cry

Yeah, the body snarking is not cool.  I've criticized Kate on GOMI in the past for her content and writing style, but I absolutely draw the line at this.

I believe she has posted about wanting to take better care of her health and fitness and that this is difficult for her due to her lifestyle.  The whole "I can't diet or fit in my workouts because I have to travel so much" routine is probably the definition of a First World Problem, but having a giggle at Important Travel Blogger Problems can be done without reference to her physical appearance.

I actually think Kate has been looking more relaxed in her photos lately and has moved away from some of the very forced poses she used to do.  I also think her writing seems less forced and her blog is more enjoyable overall compared to how it was when she was with her ex-fiance.  I haven't always been a fan of Adventurous Kate the Very Important Travel blog, but I hope that Kate as a person is doing well.  She might even be moving into SOMI territory for me.

 

Anyway, I am very glad we have a travel blogger forum now.  Up until recently I was living in a town that is extremely popular with travel bloggers and digital nomads and in my personal experience they really are some of the most tone-deaf, ignorant idiots to have ever been issued with passports.  If I have to read one more "OMG move here it's soooooo CHEAP you guyzzz!!!" post I think I will scream.  No, you ignorant oxygen thieves, it is affordable for you with all your Western wealth and privilege.  Try comparing the cost of living to the average local salary, then kindly shut up and GOMI.
