Travel Tips are Worthless

Travel Tips are Worthless
I aspire to explain travel tips that optimize the enjoyment of being a traveler, or simply a tourist.
I now believe today that writing travel tips is worthless to my readers, there is contempt before consideration of the Travel Tips.

I have realized now and understand that there is the you and me problem. I know I am not you, and you know you are not me. I have always looked at advice or my travel tips as stand alone ideas. Thoughts that have value whether you say them or I say them, or even the President of the USA says them, I really do not care, a good idea is a good a good idea, a bad one is bad, not really important to me who is the carrier of the message, the travel tip.

I now realize the word Hobo, the perception of me, the reader’s anticipation of reading about bums, cheap people, or even a person who life is difficult stops the message.

I am good or even great at marketing, this revelation of how to motivate readers makes me weak in the knees, truly negates the value of years of work trying to help travelers and tourist.

The contempt before consideration stops readers from believing these tips apply to them. I do not expect a person to travel like me, however I do hope and expect a person to see the inherent simple value of a good idea.

In a nutshell, tips not package up in a beautiful package, great graphics, nice page design, then explained by University Professor is ignored.
