I tend to waste time when I’m sitting down at the computer “working”. I look around and surf the net quite a bit, and I want to share my 3 favorite sites that are semi related to travel. If you are a travel blogger these sites will probably appeal to you as well!
Flickr: Flickr is the new kid on the block in the photo hosting world. You can upload all your travel shots here while traveling which is an awesome feature. You can also look at other people’s photos of destinations or just anything and everything. There are some very talented photographers on this site, and tons of regular old pic snappers.
If you have digital travel photos I suggest signing up for flickr and uploading them, people can view and comment on your pics so you can get a bit of feedback and be part of the community. You can also add your backpacker or travel photos to different groups. A group is like a pool of photos where each member of the group can add their own photos to the pool. I set up a group for Blogging Abroad, so come and drop some of yours in our group. If you have any and you are on flickr or sign up for flickr, come by and let us all see some of your shots!
Here’s my flickr account, feel free to add me as a friend!
43 Places: What are your top 43 destinations you would like to visit? Why not make a list and start adding to that list, and check them off when you visit your choice locals, let others around the world know where you have been as well and see who else has been there. Read reviews and see pictures generated by a community.
These are all the functions of one of my favorite time wasting site www.43places.com (they also have www.43things.com ). I have been on here for a few months just adding away slowly I now have 7 places I want to visit, but don’t get me wrong I want to go everywhere.
Check out my profile and comment if you are up to it!
Gmail: Google’s email service that pretty much kicks the crap out of the other free email services out there. You get more than 2 gigs of space so you never really have to delete anything and you can search through your emails with google’s powerful search tools.
The spam filter catches all those penis pill and other junk spam, which saves you the headache of sorting it out yourself.
What are your favorite sites out there that are in someway, or not at all related to travel? I’d love to hear about them.
